first intro’d to idea/concept via Derrick‘s hugely resonating/used quote:

eudaimonia by jensen


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.
Original Tweet:

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

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

so.. the dis\ease is that we lost focus on our fittingness.. and without that there is no ie: eudaimoniative surplus; undisturbed ecosystem; et al

undisturbed ecosystem: ‘in undisturbed ecosystems ..the average individual, species, or population, left to its own devices, behaves in ways that serve and stabilize the whole..’ –Dana Meadows

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 –

and holes come from how the desire to fit in often overwhelms our curiosity (godin) and trumps our authenticity (maté)

post by david on common\ing and art (Art is that interesting piece inside each one of us. It’s that thing you can’t not do.):

Commoning as the Heartbeat of Art & Culture – Resilience

rather.. commoning as the heartbeat of humanity.. (art as being human; as fittingness)

if we were truly commoning .. we’d realize we’re all art\ists.. begs we do this firstfree art-ists.. for (blank)’s sake.. there’s a nother way

art (by day/light) and sleep (by night/dark) as re\set.. to fittingness

listen to your hear\t

begs a means to undo our hierarchical listening to self/others/nature


gut and ground for our re\set to fittingness.. (not to mention for resetting our immunity)
