Re: Affirmation and Quotes

All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

by Richard Brautigan

I like to think (and
the sooner the better!)
of a cybernetic meadow
where mammals and computers
live together in mutually
programming harmony
like pure water
touching clear sky.

I like to think
(right now, please!)
of a cybernetic forest
filled with pines and electronics
where deer stroll peacefully
past computers
as if they were flowers
with spinning blossoms.

I like to think
(it has to be!)
of a cybernetic ecology
where we are free of our labors
and joined back to nature,
returned to our mammal
brothers and sisters,
and all watched over
by machines of loving grace.

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"As far as eating is concerned, humans are the most stupid animals on the planet.

We kill billions of wild animals to protect the animals that we eat.

We are destroying our environment to feed to the animals we eat.

We spend more time, money and resources fattening up the animals that we eat than we do feeding humans who are dying of hunger.

The greatest irony is that after all the expenses of raising these animals, we eat them; and they kill us slowly.

And rather than recognize this madness, we torture and murder millions of other animals trying to find cures to diseases caused by eating animals in the first place." ~Mike Anderson

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

To A STRANGER

by: Walt Whitman (1819-1892)

PASSING stranger! you do not know how longingly I look upon you,
You must be he I was seeking, or she I was seeking, (it comes to me as of a dream,)
I have somewhere surely lived a life of joy with you,
All is recall'd as we flit by each other, fluid, affectionate, chaste, matured,
You grew up with me, were a boy with me or a girl with me,
I ate with you and slept with you, your body has become not yours only nor left my body mine only,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes, face, flesh, as we pass, you take of my beard, breast, hands, in return,
I am not to speak to you, I am to think of you when I sit alone or wake at night alone,
I am to wait, I do not doubt I am to meet you again,
I am to see to it that I do not lose you.

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh … And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill

of under me you so quite new

e. e. cummings (1894—1962)

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"In the language of transition, we are in the in-between or Liminal Stage – the period that follows a letting go and precedes fully birthing ourselves anew.

Often the most tenuous and uncomfortable stage of transition, we are in the throes of something we cannot define, and it has encompassed our lives.

Very rarely does the culture in which we live allow this stage the time and space it needs.

But rather than filling the void with busy-ness, distractions, regret for what's been left behind, or escapist behaviours, this stage requires stillness, time, patience, and a willingness to listen to the wisdom within to allow a new self to gestate and take shape." ~Kristen Roderick

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

The bolded sentence is the one that resonated deeply:

"You are operating under the illusion that there are mistakes. There are no mistakes.

You didn't stay in that relationship too long. You didn't take the wrong job.

Yes, that thing you did you should have done. No, that thing you didn't, you shouldn't.

You are looking for proof of your unworthiness where there is none.

An excuse for ongoing postponement of showing up fully, with all your beauty scars.

Love has been carefully consciously guiding you at all times to the same place - here now, as you are." ~Dana McNally

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Transformation isn't sweet and bright. It's a dark and murky painful pushing. An unraveling of the untruths you've carried in your body. A practice in facing your own created demons. A complete uprooting before becoming." ~Victoria Erickson

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Organic images are destroyed if we subject them to linear thinking. How often we judge them as “bizarre” or “weird.”

They need to be allowed to grow like plants in a spiraling movement. They carry emotional and imaginative energy as well as intellectual meaning, and as they spiral they are illumined with nuances of feeling.

Hence their power to bring wholeness." ~Marion Woodman

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Food is the lost and hidden key to transforming our relationships with each other and with all life, and if we look deeply into our outer problems and dilemmas, we’ll find that it is our practice of animal agriculture—and our inner practice of the attitudes required by this abuse of animals—that imprison us in our bewildering maze of intensifying problems, rendering them overwhelming and insoluble." ~Will Tuttle

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant’s existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. The ceaseless activity of their own inherent nature makes these stages moments of an organic unity, where they not merely do not contradict one another, but where one is as necessary as the other; and constitutes thereby the life of the whole.”

GWF Hegel
