Perhaps back to writing more regularly now because he's trapped inside at -20C, Tony at abuddhas memes writes we must tune in to uncertainty, turn on to possibility, drop out of partiality, and sense fully. Fear can be a very positive force as long as we are not blinded by Media Light. We live at the most critical and scariest of times. We are at a developmentally exponential apex, and so the most dangerous time in human evolution. We can be whole, but will not survive another bout of totalitarianism.
I wrote a bit about Listening to Ourselves
and touched a little on women's intuition, how women tend to listen to themselves more often than men. I don't think it's because men don't have the capability, they just haven't learned how to tap into it, much as I continue to struggle with math though the capability is within me.
Another area that Tony talks about above is sensing fully. Women tend to be more sensual. Just as we can all learn to listen to ourselves, we can learn how to be more sensual, more connected to our surroundings and to the people who surround us.
Touch is probably the easiest sense to develop. Instead of simply petting your dog or cat, pay attention to the texture of their fur and how they respond to your touch, notice the fibers of your gloves, allow your toes to feel the textures beneath them, touch your own skin and really feel it. Mine feels wonderful, especially this winter because I've been taking flax, borage and fish oil supplements
As I'm writing this I'm getting images of advertisements of women taking the laundry out of the dryer and feeling the softness. Notice that men are never in those ads. we must tune in to uncertainty, turn on to possibility, drop out of partiality, and sense fully
