same deck on issuu:
first intro’d to idea/concept via Derrick‘s hugely resonating/used quote:
adding page the day i was listening to quinn – as she was asking for meditation advice – and as answers were rolling in.. i was wondering why she wanted it
let me make this clear: the thing in my head is trying to kill me.

I want it to stop, and I’ve hoped meditation could help with that, but it’s been doing the opposite.

among the suggestions was walking meditation.. and i was already thinking to suggest movement.. ie: for me swimming.. (like that book i read before kids were born on boys ..via the book..needing to be moving in order to have a conversation).. but i was thinking more in terms of the conversation with yourself (like rheingold’s mom art law)
perhaps art (as your being).. as the thing (the thing you can’t not do).. the vehicle.. to get to that convo.. to that peace.. to that shalom.. to that well being.. to that eudaimonia.. (for quinn.. to the place where nothing in her head wants to kill her).. so.. via jensen.. perhaps art as the fittingness..
[interesting gregory brought this up.. this flow place.. and q said she’d never been there]
perhaps if we could just all (in sync) have the unconditional time and space to get back/to listening to/for our art.. our fittingness.. then gershenfeld something else law would kick in as our best safety – against ourselves/others/illness.. and for jensen (in 2014 earth at risk 37 min interview – 10 min in) – against our atrocities
this is also fitting w brown belonging law: the opposite of belonging.. is fitting in..true belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are.. it requires you to be who you are.. and that’s vulnerable..
so our line is between fitting ness and fitting in –
