Paradox is Mo Betta as Pair of Docs or Chucks

Another Stick-Up. This One BY the Inner Sanctum. I Think It’s Catchin’ On.

So, I woke up this morning with a smile to the sun thinking “You can’t trust your judgment if your imagination is out of focus” by Mark Twain. And, the “when something goes wrong you need to change your negative thinking” farce-fest of a snippet-quote started rattling around again like it had a broken set of bearings. Ok, …

Here’s are my real beefs with the thought of changing negative thinking (Change your oil will get you further)

  • Changing your negative thinking feels to be about as effective as trying to clean sewage into a good soup.  That is NOT giving good kitchen.
  • First, it is expressed to let go, to surrender.  Well, being comfortable with the not-knowing in no way removes one from responsibility OR by default makes things YOUR fault. So, …
  • and, then something goes wrong and POOF “change your negative thinking” is tossed in the mix ’cause NOW it’s my fault… ’cause I just exceeded that person’s teaching ability and they don;t have the wits for solid conflict resolution skills?
  • Well, you see it IS my fault. In fact it is ALWAYS my fault. That’s because I am so damn powerful. 😀
  • What I take issue with is the bullshit dualism of yes-it-is rallying with no-it-isn’t.  There’s no Fred and Ginger with her doing it all backwards and in heels there.
  • Duality is bush-league amateur in the context of the integrated opposites of antinomy.
  • DOOD, WTF is this antinomy you keep chattering on about?!  Not antimony like antimonious. AntiNoMy. (hmmmm, there’s something in that capitalization, huh?)
  • It is simple. A car, well at least a car that works, has the integrated inner opposites of antinomy: fire, water, air, it’s solidity (earth) of them all working together inside and out. Not a jalopy with a Hemi, certainly not a kit car with a Yugo engine.

So, I remember

So, I remember finding early on in life that to surrender in my (artistic, architectural… thought) process, to let go, to be comfortable with the not-knowing WHILE completing things… I remember that to be a ROCKIN’ thing bringing things to even out across time and get in the zone, the groove, and GO MAN GO! … OOPS, and then when things went… uh hem… South… Who really cared, though?  I resonated with things going South right in the middle of a deadline, and then a mini-deadline that reared DURING the deadline, as an opportunity to see something new.  And, I created a detail that ultimately won an award.  That’s process not in ups and downs.  It’s process in… well, I surrendered even to the process in the process. That wouldn’t have happened if I had sent myself to the Inner Prison of “oh DAYum, I better pout and sputter out and stall so Santa doesn’t visit this year.” I took it straight into the wall so to speak or took a failed outside loop right into the ground pulling hard the whole time.  Got up. Shook it off.  Walked to the pits. Fashioned a new vehicle. And, set a quality time all the while in the process.

You see…

You see, the surrender part is not my problem with “change your negative thinking.”  I got that.  I utilized it.  I didn’t waste trouble and then found gold by working the problem on the way at speed in real-time through stalls and crashes and all.

And, I also got that not everything I see in someone else is a mirror of me.  That would be boring.  Well, the parts that aren’t me would be, ’cause I, like you, ROCK!  Beware the smoke and mirrors of projection redirection.  They’ll never make Inner Wimbledon.

Stick it back…

Beware the smoke and mirrors of projection redirection.  Stick it back to them with humor or a silently half-raised eyebrow and not a peep… and continue right back to running the Imagination Solar System in focus that is Your process.  “Yes Madame, I am drunk. Though, I will be sober in the morning and you will still be ugly.” ~Winston Churchill … ’cause if you stop to address every barking dog along the way… you’ll forget where you were even going (also Sir WC) … or start a shelter.

But, alas…

But alas, the jackass who was still spouting the surrender speech and then flip-flopping that it was then someone’s fault when things went awry… I saw it. He had NO up-front Loki.  No beautiful trickster to magically pick Inner Locks to get the whole picture.  He was more of a long-form conceptually tone deaf metro-gnome.  Everyone knows from garden gnomes that metro-gnomes are outcast even by the least savvy of outcasts. He’d probably say, “There’s no I in team.” Cocking my head, “Well well, you are certainly right on that, man.  And, if you aren’t more careful there will be no U in this team, either.” Remember there are two U’s in gUrU, though.  Be your own, at least twice.

Letting go and surrender are not about losing responsibility for your actions. They are a function of exploring uncharted territory with the Shadow Map of your unconscious.  Go to a game.  Have some fun.  Have you ever noticed that no-one writes much poetry while playing frisbee?  Poetry during frisbee is like texting while driving. Somebody is gonna get a frisbee in the teeth… Oh, that would be an accident that IS their fault, huh?  … Still, I bet little to no poetry is written while playing frisbee.  Composition is another thing, though.  How does your Inner Frisbee play?

Try It

Try it. I dare you to explore only expressing your beef with people with humor, higher octave positive qualities of your beef with them or what they express. Try it. Try and let go to missile-launch back with humor at close range without even a flinch in a non-insulting way.  It’s called wits.  Give yours a shot.  You might want to wear pads the first couple of times, though. Or, that would be an accident that is YOUR fault, huh?  Try this: when someone attempts to insult you, simply smile and say, “You’re welcome.”

Try it. I dare you.  One foot in front of the other. Left. Right. Left. Right. When you get good at walking, feel free to remove the periods.  Left Right Left Right.  Docs or Chucks?  Well, whatev.  Have some style while doing it, too.  It is part of the fun. How does our Inner Frisbee play?

No Negativity? I Guess I Missed It. What Was That Again?

This Is Another Stick-Up, Inner Sanctum. Get Used To It.

Hands Up Where I Can See ‘Em!

Surrender … and skip to the exercise below for the baby and not the delivery

Surrender.  Give Up. Forget Ego.  Forget Self.  Forget yourself so you can show unconditional love.  What?!  W.T.F????  Did I hear that correctly?  Wait a second.  Does that mean YOU’RE picking up lunch?  Oh wait. Now, I remember.  I see the smoke and mirrors without the experience behind it, that half-baked stuff missing its up-front Loki.  Isn’t that type of thinking like someone only doling out only half of a koan?  At least make it half a scone.
If I remember correctly… yeah yeah tappity tap on the keyboard… No thanks, my memory isn’t stored on the Google Oracle or Wiki-this-or-that… and, if I can;t remember something, maybe that means it is a natural indication that it is falling together in a new way…

So, if I Remember in My Now-Correct Evolution of it Correctly

So, if I remember correctly, it was or would become… Hold on a sec as I first read this when I was 7 as my mom brilliantly made me into the first interactive audio book for what she was reading when we were on road trips… It was Zen Flesh, Zen Bones… Cool book!  Thought that then, and I remember at least that part of it, and the word Centering. what koan was that, the ONE that jumped out at me resonantly that day?…. That was a good drive.  When I went silent gazing out the window, she asked if all was ok as I had just stopped, one of those Silences that goes to 11.  “You stopped reading out loud.  Are you ok?”  (gazing bright-eyed yet calmer than ever…) “Yes, fine. I just already do this next one.”

Before I recount the memory… put the card captions together in order as a mini-story or short poem.  Of course you can change the order of the captions.  Heck, change the captions!  What would yours be for this card sequence?  Of course you can replace the cards, too, though please go sit at the small table — hint: it’s a lot more fun over there… like the Little Bus with food.

Koan number…

Oh, I have no clue what the koan I read actually said… I do recollect as I re-collect the experience that it was something like “84. Centering.”  I’ll go to the library to refresh it later this afternoon, and see what treasured takeaway it blesses me with currently. Though, in the interim it went something like… “When encountering another, forget Self. Hear and see as if through their eyes, rippling the pond only from their expression. No Self.  Center. The pond’s calm returns.  Remember Self.  Respond.”  Something like that
That’s GOTTA be the worst memory I’ve paraphrased EVER!  Oh, what’s that Mr. Mark Twain?  You say horseshit, that that’s a fine recollection as I re-collected the idea in my Idea Solar System?  Oh that’s RIGHT, you DID say “You cannot depend on your judgment when your imagination is out of focus.”  Thanks historical friend dood.  Imaginative memory?  Oh, not revisionist memory or irony or lies.  It is re-collecting rather than recollecting.  It’s sculpture made from rich Inner Booty Inner Earth clay.  Thanks for the glasses, Mark!  As a novelist I know often says  when asked whether something was true or not. “Oh, it’s certainly true the way it happened.  It’s just a lot more true the way I tell it.”

I Guess I missed It.  What Was It Again?

Oh, I guess I didn’t really get it… what to do when something goes wrong.  Somehow I missed the reason for blaming ourselves for things beyond our control with the directive-suggestion to “Change your negative thinking.”  I must have skipped class that day.  Really?  Like it’s all in my power to visualize better and better and then if something goes wrong I must have been doing it wrong, and it’s the fault… of my negative thinking?  Wait! They’re right!  It IS my fault.  It is ALWAYS my fault. I am just THAT powerful!!  lol  Then again, we each are that powerful with no lol after, and even more so when we lol while having fun together.

Change your negative thinking?

Change your negative thinking” to me is simply more Modern Renaissance High Church Self-Affirmation-then-hair-shirt-beat-yourself-up Bullpoopy from my perspective. Is it simply crowd control delegated to get people to nip at their own ankles, to hold their own grace hostage?

I suggest NOT to try and change your negative thinking.  Changing your negative thinking feels to be about as effective as trying to clean sewage into a good soup.  Where’s the exhaust pipe?  Step on it bayBEE!  Ahhh Inner Sanctum… Put your hands up where I can see ’em!  You better start getting used to it.  This is a stick-up!  Gotta empty your cup before it can be filled, huh?

But, WAIT! There’s More!

No, really. All that up there I just wrote is simply ground to support this simple figure of an exercise to take for a spin.

  • Before you fire an idea or a person or or or.  
  • Before you go into the societal erosion mode we are pretty much unconsciously supported by and trained to embrace.  
  • Try this… Plus something.  Plus it. What’s “plussing”? It is ONLY saying constructive things. It is seeing THROUGH the chaff to get the wheat… without mentioning the chaff.  
  • The FIRST thing you think about something… ESPECIALLY if it pisses you off might best be… “What treasure is hidden among these swine, and what part am I playing in… Ahhh, I see… SCREW THAT MIRROR… in fact I will BREAK that mirror into … not 7 years bad luck.  I will break the mirror into its multiple perspectives as they waft away like smoke revealing… the treasure takeaway!”  
  • Do that doggedly and selfishly in the first thing you THINK about something that gets your goat, causes you to WANT head butt… THEN 
  • With that as the selfish first thing you do which minds you of your own self-respecting boundaries… you may become strong enough to be gentle, and like a Silverback… forget yourself as…
  • …with the above as the first thing you THINK… the first thing you SAY can be expressed to embrace the priceless treasure you found inside… about someone else’s idea or expression. And, this is not speed chest with that slap-the-clock stuff. Find the rhythm of the expression. Express it.
  • Plus something. Plus it with plussing as a descriptive verb. In fact, pull the stonewalling invisi-ropes on your inner design team’s M.O. or your design team at work… watch how power flows then. Watch as the elegant smoke and mirrors, the houses of cards fall to…
  • Surprise yourself and try this. No negative comments. It’ll make the most practiced know-it-all a French mime mute… or concise if they can play that way.  You may also find the treasures people are protecting that enhance THEIR role… the treasures they are protecting from themselves so they can continue to miss themselves AS the key to freeing themselves from holding their grace hostage and shining more fruitfully THEIR way.

Try It

Try it. I dare you to explore only expressing potential benefits, positive qualities, and effective aspects of any idea presented in a group setting. And, there can be no punishment… because no exceptions to expressing an enhancement of or benefit to what is presented… no exceptions are allowed.

Try it. I dare you.

Hey There Inner Sanctum. Hands Up! This Is A Stick-Up

This Is A Stick-Up, Inner Sanctum. Hands Up Where I Can See ‘Em!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Surrender

Surrender.  Give Up. Forget Ego.  Forget Self. Forget yourself so you can show unconditional love.  What?!  Did I hear that correctly?  Wait a second.  Does that mean YOU’RE picking up lunch?

Dissolution

Forget Self?!  Forget Ego.  Well, color me blind.  Wouldn’t dissolution of Self and Ego seem to indicate a paltry lack of boundaries where identity simply erodes like a battered coastal cliff… oh, it goes further than that does it, huh?  Now, don’t get me wrong.  I am ALL FOR Neptunian sponge-like boundaries, their boundarylessness, where boundaries and edges of identity themselves are like whisker-hands reaching out to energetically inform someone of their surroundings… and where things comingle… and also, where the sponge-like boundaries need to be kept fresh and unclogged… though I’m not hopping in an alleged loss of boundaries with just anyone… and honestly, that kind of exchange of psychic “bodily fluids” serves more to enhance the strength of freedom WITH identity and its exploratory discoveries… with the right person or people of course…

The Ego

Heck, the ego isn’t bad. It is the egomaniacal people that suck, and egomania is a far cry from ego. Having an ego no-where near implies egomania, not even close.  That would be like trying to pick a bad apple from a seed.  Aint gonna happen.  And, isn’t the ego wired directly to the magical locks of the Inner Sanctum that is guarded by the dragon?  Hmmm… Maybe the Ego is what’s so deftly guarded in there.  Maybe the Ego is what is magically locked away in that Inner Sanctum thingee.

Magical Thief

Ahhh, would that really be ashame?  That we play consummate and magical thief and sneak past the dragon guarding our Inner Sanctum?  That we sneak past and stealthily pick the magical locks of our Inner Sanctum? That after all this Cirque du Soleil level exploration of our inner selves… we open our Inner Sanctum… and find… that the Ego is what is protected there?  Interestingly, that brings a smile. It’s not bad at allllll. And, it’s certainly not Geraldo Rivera’s bust on live TV opening Al Capone’s vaults.

How Powerful You Are

There is a lot of talk of how people might just be afraid of how powerful they are. I like that immensely as I don’t let myself bully me, and I don’t run that line the other way, either. I TRY and treat myself like chocolate … though chocolate isn’t as affected as much by me as I am when I have it.
There is a lot of talk of how people might just be afraid of how powerful they are.  If they saw that the ego antennae that is on the surface is somehow contributing to awareness… like antennae or sponge-like… … and that the Ego was directly wired or piped to the Inner Sanctum Tank… if they saw that the ego filled the Inner Sanctum Tank with Ego at a universal, collective unconscious level… filled our Inner Sanctum core level as easily as pumping gas… into your vehicle… Literally, that helps you GO places. Why do people note a bruised ego, then scoff or slink away at the first whiff that they HAVE an ego when it is not hurt?  Remember, bactine is only for surface scratches.

Wrong Turns

Hmmmm, taking wrong turns along the way.  Nah, there aren’t any.  If I got pulled unduly by some crack idea… well, I fire that idea and rubber band bounce back to my path.  That happens less than you might think, though. First, it is that there are no mistakes, and I usually discover some treasure when pulled that way… and, that I still LOVE to chase butterflies. Too bad they only live a month after their magical twilight in the chrysalis.
So, is HAVING an Ego forbidden fruit these days?  Not that I care, really. I am curious.  Is going YOUR way forbidden fruit?  Hmmm, I’m downshifting back to notion that forbidden fruit is High Bullpoopy issued from the Renaissance High Church for crowd control.   Is forbidden fruit really so yummy, anyway?  I bet it isn’t ambrosia.

Over the Counter

Do people seem to think that all the good stuff is behind the counter?  That they don’t already have it?  Guess so a lot of times.  I bet I have at LEAST once.  Hmmm, isn’t the good stuff IN you naturally?  Aren’t your Inner Inheritance there to be discovered?  And, you don’t even need to reach for that… maybe simply feel your own breath as prayer… the high octane of your actions!

Knowing What’s Wrong

Knowing what’s wrong with something only informs the edges of your Path, and as a mode is the consummate expression of the annoying know-it-all. Knowing what’s right with something sets up the opportunity for the Path to have workability WITHIN the outer space just off of it.
Isn’t the good stuff IN you naturally?  Aren’t your Inner Inheritance there to be discovered?

WAIT!!!

So, WAIT!  I guess they were right all along to surrender, to give up.  Yes, they were right all along. I GET it! Bye bye worry. Shake your Inner Booty!  I guess I didn’t bring a gun for the stick-up…so, this little puck of an air freshener oughta do.  They WERE right…
They meant… Find your Inner Treasure, your Inner Inheritances.  Find it, and shake your Inner Booty.  Shake it YOUR WAY!  I am so glad I spent the time to figure out what they meant.
Oh!
Oh, I guess I didn’t really get it.  Somehow I missed the Law Of Attraction’s blaming you for things beyond your control with the directive-suggestion to “Change your negative thinking.”  Really?  More Renaissance High Church Bullpoopy from my perspective.  If a person is a drag on the system, they get fired, not changed. If an idea is a drag on the system… FIRE IT!  JETTISON IT!  And, enjoy a huge sigh of an exhale of relief.  Change your negative thinking?  Neh, fire the adversity of it.  “Adversity does not build character. It reveals it.” (Anon.)
I suggest to not try and change your negative thinking.  Changing your negative thinking feels to be about as effective as trying to clean sewage into a good soup.  Where’s the exhaust pipe.  Step on it bayBEE!  Put your hands up where I can see ’em!  This is a stick-up!  Ahhh, you’ll get used to that little puck thing in each armpit.

But, WAIT! There’s More!

No, really. All that up there I just wrote is simply ground to support this simple figure.

  • Before you fire an idea or a person or or or.  
  • Before you go into the societal erosion mode we are pretty much unconsciously supported to embrace.  
  • Try this… Plus something.  Plus it.  
  • The FIRST thing you think about something… ESPECIALLY if it pisses you off might best be… “What treasure is hidden among these swine, and what part am I playing in… Ahhh, I see… SCREW THAT… Where’s the treasure takeaway?”  
  • Do that doggedly and selfishly in the first thing you THINK about something that gets your goat, causes you to head butt… THEN 
  • With that as the selfish first thing you which minds your own self-respecting boundaries… you may become strong enough to be gentle, and like a Silverback…
  • …with the above as the first thing you THINK… the first thing you SAY can be expressed to embrace the priceless treasure you found inside.
  • Plus something. Plus it. In fact, pull the stonewall invisi-ropes on your inner design team or your design team at work… watch how power flows then. Watch as the elegant smoke and mirrors, the houses of cards fall to…
  • Surprise yourself and try this. No negative comments. It’ll make the most practiced know-it-all a French mime mute… or concise if you play that way.  You may also find the treasures people are protecting… the treasures they are protecting from themselves so they can continue to miss themselves AS the key to freeing themselves from holding their grace hostage.

Try it. I dare you.
