a little bit of going with the flow

Here is a little video intro to an idea about how to have more productive flow in our relationships with the world. It’s just a funny way to think about what we want to do, and how we can do it more effectively by exploring the world around us a bit more, to seek out those who want what we want to express, and want to express what we want to get.



And here is the full size handout that goes with with video:

The title of this is a good old fashioned bait and switch, really. That’s because I want to talk about the question itself. I want to talk about these concepts of “right and wrong” and “true and false”.

These ideas are based in a limited, one dimensional, linear view of reality, which, while useful sometimes, is generally ineffective in the long term, and/or on large scales. To get a more effective view of reality, we can look at things from a higher dimension, with more complexity, seeing how reality is like a tree branching outwards in a fractal pattern. It’s not always easy! But it’s worth it if we want to find good solutions to our problems and gain more joy and meaning in life.

Ultimately, from the perspective of the center of the universe, “right” is just a subjective direction. All directions are “right” if every direction is available and interesting and moving reality forward, or “true”, just like every branch of a tree is the right branch.

So, whatever you do, and whomever you are, is what’s right, from the universe’s perspective.

The Big Picture:

My big goal that is getting very much closer, thanks to generous donations, is starting a non-profit community resource hub with resident artists, techies, and educators all working with the community to find creative solutions using available resources to serve the needs of the community members freely and unconditionally so that everyone can be their best possible selves. I’m currently (Summer 2018) starting to seriously look for (very cheap) property, ideally an old farm, probably in mid-coast Maine, and seeking folks who can help figure out the legal stuff of starting a non-profit or whatever, and putting the property into a trust so that it’s always there to serve the needs of those who live there.

I’ve also created a Patreon creator account for those who believe that my work is valuable and who have an excess number of banking points (aka $’s, £’s, ¥, or whatever).
