Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"We consume so we never have to answer the hard questions. When we are bored we eat. When we are lonely we watch a movie, read the newspaper, jump on social media.

Each time we do we cover up our real emotions and keep throwing another layer of confusion and anxiety on top, making it almost impossible to dig ourselves out of the hole, or at least see which way is up." ~Evan Sutter

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"What we all have to avoid is the notion that we can buy our way out of our problems. Instead, the goal is to reduce our costs by extreme frugality.

This is psychologically difficult because if there is one great certain confidence in American society it is this: you can buy your way out of almost anything.

Other than a few things that will land you in jail even if you are rich, we tend to look for solutions that involve buying things.

Having trouble with your marriage? Take a vacation. Pay a counselor.

Don't want to eat pesticides? Buy organic food!

Indebted? Buy a book about how to get out.

Worried about Peak Oil? Look at all the things there are to buy.

Got a crosscut saw and a year's supply of dry milk yet?

Don't want to give up driving and flying? We'll sell you some nice carbon offsets." ~Sharon Astyk

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"If 22 bushels (1,300 pounds) of rice and 22 bushels of winter grain are harvested from a quarter acre field, then the field will support five to ten people each investing an average of less than one hour of labour per day.

But if the field were turned over to pasturage, or if the grain were fed to cattle, only one person could be supported per quarter acre.

Meat becomes a luxury food when its production requires land which could provide food directly for human consumption. This has been shown clearly and definitely.

Each person should ponder seriously how much hardship he is causing by indulging in food so expensively produced." ~Masanobu Fukuoka

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"The addition of food should be much rarer, since it is often useful to completely take it away while the patient can withstand it, until the force of the disease reaches its maturity.

The man carries within him a doctor; you just have to help him do his work. If the body is not cleared, then the more you feed it, the more it will be harmed.

When a patient is fed too richly, the disease is fed as well. Remember – any excess is against nature." ~Hippocrates

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“The world is increasingly designed to depress us. Happiness isn’t very good for the economy. If we were happy with what we had, why would we need more?

How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturizer? You make someone worry about ageing.

How do you get people to vote for a political party? You make them worry about immigration.

How do you get them to buy insurance? By making them worry about everything.

How do you get them to have plastic surgery? By highlighting their physical flaws.

How do you get them to watch a TV show? By making them worry about missing out.

How do you get them to buy a new smartphone? By making them feel like they are being left behind.

To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act. To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence.

To be comfortable with our messy human selves would not be good for business.” ~Matt Haig

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

"Handmaking teaches us to respect the slow, attentive piecing together of the life we yearn for.

Stitch by stitch, we apprentice the craft. We work in tandem with mystery, feeling its rhythms awaken in our bone-memory.

And we realise the patience it takes to make a life materialise. There are no shortcuts, and it can’t be done cheaply, or en masse.

The work is small, the work is slow and all we can do is stay with it." ~Toko-pa Turner

Re: Affirmation and Quotes

“When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it’s bottomless, that it doesn’t have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.” ~Pema Chdrn
