reductionist theory: images, music & musings
Great movement here, Janet :)wishes, devika
Very Amerindian, simply mysteriuous: a jigsaw puzzle!?:) (Just my – an outsider’s point of view)!?:)
Thanks Devika :-)borut- one of the ceremonies we did when I was studying the shamanic path was picking our "turn around phrase". It involved moving in a circle and winding up to the statement which was our greatest hindrance. Then unwinding (turning around)and circling in the reverse direction until a power statement to undo the hindrance came up. The circular movement (dance)was very trance-like. Definitely solving a puzzle. I liken it to your "opposite of the donkey's desire" And "Heyokah" is a kind of teacher who teaches by turning things upside down, or tricks you into learning.
I see… I see the logic: in Don Juan’s lineage it’s called ‘not-doing’ – doing the reverse of what one is accustomed to doing… To give our ordinary self (there called ‘the human form’) a shock, and, ultimately, with the aid of a ‘seeing’ teacher and a number of other techniques, to shake it off… Yes, like shaking a donkey off one’s shoulders!:)
They idealize the state of "not caring, not doing", which is connected to the assemblage point known as "no pity"To me this is very Zen-like; the place of non-attachment.
