I am addressing the passionate, mysterious, connecting, often transcendent, deeply human… yes arousing experiences of daily life, which involve the senses; those experiences which take you out of your head, into your body. I want to share my investigation of EROS with some stories that name and define a relationship to Eros, which many us habitually ignore.
Two things began this inquiry: the first one is the theme of Sacred Body which we are exploring in the Painting Circles and the other is the book How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci. Sensazione, or sensuality in the English dictionary gives the first four definitions as negative: licentious and lustful, while the last one is of the senses. Living in Paris in my twenties, was a training ground for arousing the harmonious union of not only the body senses, but the knowledge through pleasure. It probably helped to be conversing in sensuous language of French, the common language of the foreign art students that I spent my time with.
We spent most of the day reflecting and responding to the stimulating foot traffic: an interesting outfit, a captivating walk, bits of a conversation between a child and parent, a look between lovers, a pair of shoes. Everything we witnessed was registered in the body and was fair game for a new investigation.
Worry Goes West, no. 2
Many of you may have lived something similar in your youth, but you do not need to be in Paris or Athens. Now, how do you cultivate the erotic part of life in a culture that dampens down our arousal unless it can. An intensity of focus with an availability of response is required for the experience, as well as an element of peril, even if it is existential. The danger element can be as subtle as the possibility or walking off with a stranger. Do you remember, an experience in the last few weeks in which you were engaged, connected and transported in a way that took your breath away?
When I asked my mother, who is an artist and writer, and also eighty-eighty years old she responded with this story: Just this last week I saw a very realistic painting of a tiger that brought back an experience, which I will never forget. In the original experience I was in a zoo and somehow caught the eye of a Bengal Tiger. Our eyes locked and his gaze went right through me like electricity, my stomach went up into my mouths.
It was like he created the pathway for the experiences like that with other animals. It was filled with mystery, otherness but blatant sameness, tenderness and at the same time threatening. This relates to deep inner connection, sensuality and openness of curiosity. This last story is an example of the Plato system of union of knowledge and pleasure.
I had recently arrived in Japan, speaking little Japanese language and because little English was spoken in this pottery village of Shigaraki, I had no idea what was going on and what. While the sons of the potter were having a tea ceremony lesson, the hum of the cicadas and distant temple bells made it feel like I was in a samurai movie, complete with shafts of light coming through the high woven bamboo window onto the tatami mats.
The tea instructor folded the traditional red silk cloth in her hands to wipe the tea implements. Sitting there mesmerized I was transported to a deeply peaceful state of wellbeing, followed by a state of ecstasy stimulated by sips of powered green tea. The interesting thing was that I made a connection that the many Catholic masses which I sat through as a child were designed as ritual transformation, although it was not my experience.
Later I found out that the tea ceremony had some oblique connections to Christianity. The principle that comes up here for me is in Italian, Corporalita, which I translate as embodiment, as well as, Connessione, inner connectedness, or system thinking.
So I invite you to consider this well-spring of life that feeds your creativity, empathy, connection and passion with nature, others and even things, Try paying more attention to what I am calling the eros of life, because there is a transport through arousal which returns you to yourself.

This chemical should not be in our food! BHT is not proven safe! The approval of BHT as a food additive has been called one of the worst failures of our regulatory system by the respected Environmental Working Group and is included in their list of dirty dozen food additives 3. We deserve the same safer ingredients other countries get. This is because there are studies that show it can cause cancer in lab animals, and its research is controversial.
It is also thought to be an endocrine disrupter. This same chemical is widely used as a preservative in your cereals in the U.

She had lived in their house for seven years until she was evicted for removing all of the windows. The landlord replaced the windows, painted the walls and put in new carpet just before my clients moved in.
Good as new, right? Marsha would regularly drive by the house to see if Annie and Mike were away. Once she dug up two plants from the yard; two months later she took a tall bush. I also suggested Feng Shui adjustments to correct the energy flow of the house. We were amazed to see how the space clearing and the Feng Shui adjustments affected their lives. Right after the space clearing Mike felt so good in the house he began to spend time at home relaxing and he. The next day, roofers unexpectedly came to put on a new roof. This was a miracle because the landlord had been promising a new roof ever since they moved in.
This delay had been frustrating to my clients because the landlord would not paint the house until the roof was done and the house had big patches of different color paint all over it. The roofers brought a dumpster for the old roof and Annie got permission from the landlord to put in it all the junk that Marsha had left on the property.
The landlord was shockingly helpful after his unreliable history. A week after our Feng Shui appointment, the painters arrived to paint the house and the landlord even consulted Annie on the colors. The best change of all was that Marsha stopped harassing them, she moved on with her life leaving Annie and Mike to move on with theirs.

When we inhale air into our lungs, we oxygenate the blood and release toxins. You can experience this for yourself as you read these words. Try it: Relax your belly, take a long, slow, full breath, inhaling deeply into your belly and high into your chest, hold it for a moment, then exhale while you relax your shoulders, heart and abdomen.
Feeling the rhythm of the breath cycle brings you home to yourself. Andrew Weil. This breathing technique is a simple way to counteract stress, and you can use technology to help. For example, use your cell phone timer to help you remember to pause every hour and take three deep breaths. Shallow breathing creates spiritual bankruptcy, stress, and imbalances in the body. A deeper breath allows you to feel connected to life rather than separate. All you really need to do is take a deeper breath in.
The exhale will take care of itself, a natural letting go. Our environment provides many opportunities to reprogram our subconscious minds to remember to relax. For example, give yourself the suggestion to take three deep breaths every time you stop at a red light, stand in line, or see something beautiful.
As you become more conscious of the rhythm of your breath, you will notice it weaving in and through the fabric of your day and into your dreamtime. The Buddha reportedly said that only three things really matter in life: How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you. When our days are turbulent and challenging, returning to the breath is a saving grace. When the winds of life toss us around we can take refuge in the breath which can bring us back home to ourselves.

Linda could not afford the rent on her apartment and, because we were going away for the summer, we offered to let her house-sit. We returned six weeks later to discover that Linda had robbed us of everything valuable. Because we were going camping and river rafting, I had left my valuable engagement ring in a very safe and hidden place. It was gone along with the only thing that I had from my grandmother, a beautiful and valuable diamond pin.
Both were irreplaceable. Linda had searched through every box and drawer in our home, even dumping out our Christmas decorations and breaking most of the antique ones from my great grandparents. Then Barry called the bank and discovered that Linda had stolen thousands of dollars from our banking account. She was gone with no way to discover her new location. Her former husband had no idea where she had gone. How does one deal with something like that? We loved Linda and trusted her implicitly. It was the betrayal more than the stolen items that hurt the most.
Of all of the things that were stolen, it was my engagement ring that hurt the most. Barry had worked for a whole summer as a waiter to earn the money to buy that ring. He gave it to me in a most romantic way when we were both twenty one years old. I dearly loved it! Nothing could replace the deep sentiment I felt for the ring given to me by Barry in the innocence of our youth. Over the years, whenever I would tell the story about why I do not have an engagement ring, I would get tense and sometimes my body would start to shake.
Often I could not sleep at night after telling the story. I just could not get it out of my head and heart that someone we trusted so much could betray us and then disappear. Fifteen years after the robbery, I picked up the phone and it was Linda. She was crying and told me how terrible she still felt about what she had done. She told me about her many sleep-. Have you given up hope of getting well? Many people have expressed shocked appreciation that they have been able to get better with my care after suffering for so long and giving up hope.
Endonasal Cranial Correction is part of this new work and is literally like a breath of fresh air as the nasal passages are opened. Thank you for this new lease on life. Everyone needs to know about this! She was crying so deeply that my heart opened to her. I felt a strong presence of love come through my voice as I told her that Barry and I still loved her very much and that she must have been very desperate to do such a thing to us.
I told her that we forgave her. Since she was living in New England and we were traveling there to do a workshop the next week, we arranged a time to meet. I told her it would be so good to get together and share our feelings and that she could begin to pay us back for the many thousands of dollars that were stolen. She agreed to meet with us and to begin paying us back. I ended the call with a lot of love and forgiveness. She never met us, never started paying us back, and never contacted us again. For years I felt as if I had been too loving with her and criticized myself.
Just last year, I was reading the prayer of St. In reading those words, I felt that Linda had given me the gift of being able to fully forgive someone in this life for a deliberate transgression.
[email protected] the Speed of Fear
The power of love asks that we forgive completely. I needed to let go of the story behind why I do not have an engagement ring. I will always miss my ring for I dearly loved it. But I do not have to cling to the story behind why it is gone. I can let go of the story and be free. I am grateful that I was given the opportunity to truly forgive someone.

Silly Putty Dimethylpolysiloxane is commonly used in vinegary-smelling silicone caulks, adhesives, and aquarium sealants, a component in silicone grease and other silicone based lubricants, as well as in defoaming agents, mold release agents, damping fluids, heat transfer fluids, polishes, cosmetics, hair conditioners AND IN OUR FOOD! There have been no major studies conducted on the safety of dimethylpolysiloxane in food by the FDA or the Food Industry since it was approved in , but the food industry is allowed to use it in anything they want except milk.
Formaldehyde is one of the most highly toxic substances on earth. It is linked to allergies, brain damage, cancer, and auto-immune disorders.

SCRAM urges the entire community to attend and voice their individual concerns.
As witnessed at the most recent council sessions, the community has rallied around these goals and SCRAM has successfully worked to return these issues to the Council Agenda for a full, transparent public hearing. Additionally, the process by which SCPD and the City Council approved and accepted the grant was a world-class example of what not to do. First, seven months passed before Council was informed that the grant application had been approved. This information could have been disclosed at any time during this period.
Secondly, Council was told that there was no time for debate because the funds would be lost if the purchase was not approved immediately. Third, Council attempted to slip this extremely controversial item past the public by putting it on the Consent Agenda and then provided only selective and unsubstantiated bits of information.
We have found a pattern of nondisclosure and misrepresentation about these kinds of grants all over the country. SCRAM agrees that keeping first responders and potential victims safe is vitally important. Santa Cruz is not Baghdad or Kabul.

We are staffed exclusively by volunteers and need your help for a successful second summer season. Meanwhile, most of the kids outside are working to provide food and care for the cafeteria. They are in the sun everyday working very hard, but give all the produce to the cafeteria.
These kids outside are given just enough food to stay alive -. Here is a slightly more humane suggestion considering the estimated 7 trillion dollars of cash being hoarded worldwide. There are five hundred kids outside, fifty working inside the kitchen, fifty working as servers, and a hundred kids inside eating at the tables. There are three tables in the middle of the cafeteria with the shot callers, the popular kids. These popular kids control who gets food in this cafeteria. You see they have a great support system of other kids in the surrounding tables that help them to maintain legitimacy and control.
These other tables hold an assortment of really clever, smart, and strong kids.
More titles to consider
Some write a daily newsletter, some distribute and teach it, while the big bully kids make sure everyone stays in line. Everyone is made to read the stories in the newsletter everyday. The newest younger kids have to spend all day learning the order of things, and how the cafeteria runs to provide food for everyone. As they get older and prove they can participate perfectly, they may graduate into a position inside the cafeteria.
Some actually make it into the dining room to eat. This is rare, but when it does happen, it is met with great fanfare. The newsletter reports these stories as possible for any of the kids. The popular kids and their friends are highly respected and celebrated. The kids who have finally made it into the cafeteria to eat, do not dare. There are many kids that die of starvation every day. The kids outside are in such distress from the situation, that there is constant fighting and there is much brutality going on.
Kids are disfigured and maimed every day under these harsh circumstances. The kids inside the cafeteria look outside at this terrible situation outside and feel good that they are not like that. Some feel bad and write about it in little notes to pass around. Mostly the notes end up on the floor and get swept away, but some are stories made into plays or included in the Newsletter. The stories always have the same premise - that kids are complicated creatures and this is just how they are. They have been much worst in the past, but are getting better.
There are always a couple of tables near the kitchen with kids that wear pink ties. They are in a perpetual planning stage working towards making things better, and consistently blame each other for the lack of improvement for the kids dying outside. The pink tie kids are always playing musical chairs, and are replaced every couple of weeks. The smart clever kids lucky enough to be inside, are designing ways to improve upon the cafeteria, while others build cool electronic toys.
Others are singing and planning theatrical productions for the stage at the end of the cafeteria. Most are just taking selfies with their smart phones. The smartest and most influential kids are near the center tables. They actively plan on ways to get more production of food from the kids outside, and ways to give less to the kids working the cafeteria. They have been so successful that the kids at the center table have backpacks full of food and snacks all the time. So much so, that they daily throw away most of it because it rots. Hundreds of pounds are dried and preserved in barrels.
Nearly all the barrels belong to the popular kids at the center tables. This system has been working great, but the current school will be barren soon since no effort has been made to preserve the garden soil, and the water supply is now very polluted. The kids in control are working hard at designing a balloon so they can float off to another school to start over in the near future. There will only be enough room in the balloon for the center tables though. There comes a time when the unrest and fighting outside are mounting faster than the mountain of food barrels in storage.
A great many barrels are owned by the most popular boy who wears an apple printed on his t-shirt. He decides to end the nonsense. He rolls his barrells outside to share, and thus saves all the children from chaos, starvation and ruin. The other kids witness this act of compassion and feel the affects. They are moved to follow suit since the good that follows is undeniable. See how we are taking action today by visiting future at futureofthefree. Squash, Beans and Corn 3 of 3-Part Series.
