    Sometimes when I am out

    and about I will make eye contact with a stranger and immediately think about someone I know. Does this person actually know that person, 6 degrees of separation? It's not that they remind me of that person. I am perplexed.

    "It takes one to know one" My favorite quote.

    The principle is that any reason to like or dislike anything about anyone else is because it's something the individual likes or dislikes about themself. My theory (amateur I've never read a mildly in-depth book of psyche studies) is that each time, possibly hundreds a day, you...

    Reflecting On Alan Watts (01)

    I cannot quote verbatim, but as I far as I can recall Alan Watts talk on meditation, he equals the art of meditation with the art of getting in touch with reality. While this mere thought seems to be compelling enough to start the practice, he offers more arguments. For...

    and giving advice. I am getting my Masters in counseling because I've proven myself to be so good at it. But what about when I'm the one who needs to talk? I have deep problems that no one I know has any idea about. Everyone comes to me with their problems and I love that, but I...

    Sunday Morning Musings On Perception

    The benefit of the Sunday morning is that it offers some time to write up the post-meditation exercise reflections. Little note - I do not mean "meditation" in any formal sense, this is just a sort of mental exercise of reflecting routine of my own. It is characteristic that...

    Normal Psychology 4 Dummies

    In 34 Words: The Human Mind

    The conscious is images. The subconscious is details. The images tell us a person’s true feelings show at his discretion. The details tell us how he feels, which is not how his image feels.

    Just Think!

    The Mirage We Spend Everything Saving

    The subconscious is a degraded intelligence, and obedience to authority degrades it. One form of this obedience is to read people’s faces and accept what we read as someone to meet. When we do this even disobedience becomes obedience, because we disobey this image, so...
