Thank you Judy,
I just sat with Rupert’s book [Being Myself] on the couch and read page one slowly, several times.
I looked at it and wondered how I can put in my own words what I just read.
(There is a methodology called Zettelkasten [the german word for slip-box] to make notes, to store and process information; instead to passively highlight sentences in a book it invites to reflect and use your own words.)
Thank you Judy for our time yesterday looking at MeOrIam.com.
It is precious to speak with a human being in the same interest.
I’d like to rewrite this little website, to make it very simple and clear; so far all of my websites are just drafts, stepping stones, invitations for a deepening of understanding.
What do I really know and understand, and what is pretense?
Rupert’s little book is quite amazing.
Thank you Judy for your openness and availability.
It is good to be stirred up a little and to look at my own mental confetti.
Isn’t this what makes us human?
Speaking, listening with “other” in an atmosphere of openness, warmth, sharing…
This morning I thought about Tessa, and how I want to see some more structure in regard to her education; we do “homeschooling”… and on some level she is doing great in her own way.
We can look at life through different lenses, but which one is the real one?
Thank you Judy, I have no personal interest in “you” (I trust you don’t misunderstand my words), I am only interested in God’s will.
God’s will being love, intelligence, beauty, abundance… celebrating life as Judy and Holger and everyone.
Francis shared three legitimate reasons to use the mind:
being practical, celebrating life, sharing.
Life as art.
My “me” could be called quite a mess from the old perspective of a separate-self; mostly resistance and fear of pain… deep confusion in regard to “being myself”; easily impressed and intimidated by “others” and my own thoughts and feelings.
Roger Castillo sometimes asks “who cares?”
Not in a dismissive way, but as an invitation to inquire and to see what is this “I”…
Am I the person I think and believe myself to be, or am I an instrument and openness for Life to flow into this world?
About the “Zettelkasten” (slip-box) methodology:
“One researcher famous for his extensive use of the method was the sociologist Niklas Luhmann (1927–1998). Luhmann built up a zettelkasten of some 90,000 index cards for his research, and credited it for enabling his extraordinarily prolific writing (including over 70 books and 400 scholarly articles). He linked the cards together by assigning each a unique index number based on a branching hierarchy. These index cards were digitized and made available online in 2019. Luhmann described the zettelkasten as part of his research into systems theory in the essay ‘Kommunikation mit Zettelkästen'”.
