Happy New Year!
New Yearâ€™s Eve is pretty uneventful ...
It is hard to know where to focus our attention in this attention deficit world of pop-up ads, video billboards, and sign flippers on every corner.
It can be maddening. If we view life as something that we take a seat for and passively receive â€“ then we are in for a frenzied ride that we have no control over.
But once you start to understand how your brain works, things ...
Have you ever seen a toddler fall down?
A few things can happen.
1) The kid can bounce right back up and continue on their wobbly way.
2) The kid can become aware of the pain in the body part that they bumped and start crying.
3) The kid can fall and then look around to read people's reaction. If they see concerned faces, they start wailing. If they see no signs of ...
The numbers on a clock only have meaning because we give them meaning.
There is no galactic timepiece that â€œclicksâ€™ when a second passes or cosmic chime that sounds on the hour.
But these numbers are tools to help us measure.
So as our calendar displays this glorious string of elevens, it is a perfect moment to check on our internal stopwatch.
All special dates - birthdays, new years - ...
The paradox of humanity is that we must be bound in order to be free.
We have unlimited options, but must limit them in order to function and make sense of the world.
For example, the human mouth can make an infinite number of sounds, but we must confine our voice to specific sounds in order to make words and communicate.
The social contract is all about this idea of ...
I took a semester off of college to travel through Europe with my friend Eric. We ended up spending two months in Turkey. When you give yourself multiple months in a country and minimal destinations, you experience â€œgoing with the flowâ€ in whole new ways.
One day we decided to buy a bus ticket to a city about 5 hours away. And then get off somewhere in the middle.
Hug Nation broadcast about "Why Pink?"
And a blog entry about the same thing:
Taken in 2000. Featured in "The People of Burning Man" book http://thepeopleofburningman.com
It is the question I get asked most often, after, "What are you doing in the women's bathroom?"
I first embraced pink as an intentional confrontation of male stereotypes. It was ...
I entered Heaven.
Of course, nothing like Heaven as it is painted. But I'm sure any description of Heaven could have existed there.
What I saw was a perfection of color pattern and sensations. Most things were made of segmented "bricks" of colored light. Not uniform in size, but fitting together perfectly, like the scales on a snake.
Every part of this heaven world moves incredibly fast and my mind ...
Her transformation began weeks ago.
After the first day of Eve's workshop I could already sense a shift in B.
Every Sunday for 6 weeks is a big commitment - but the commitment to the process was far more impressive.
The workshop was about discovering the goddess within through a process of study & dance. Finally culminating in a performance.
Each woman chose a different goddess from a different tradition.
B. choose ...
This was my 14th Burn. Here are my reflections.
PART1 : THE JOURNEY
This year's journey started perfectly for me - with my RV breaking down.
The Hugmobile was sidelined with vapor lock just blocks from where it met the same fate last year. San Bernardino is apparently the Pink Bermuda Triangle.
But as dedicated students of Surrender, we rolled with it. We spent the day parked outside a drug dealers ...
