Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thanks melo for enlarging my vocabulary - thaumaturgy, had to look it up. Very interesting!

once the horse gets back in front(!) of the cart, you have to wonder why everyone doesn't just get it...boom.....flash...


or do you see it as a long gruelling road of painful initiations, leaving behind bleeding chunks of ego as you battle onwards and upwards?

didn't think so...

You are right it was neither of them. No boom, no bleeding, but more like a series of small flashes, which over time turned into a accumulation of encouraging warmth. I mean it is still not peaches and cream everyday - but then who wants them everyday....

the world as jigsaw...

gotta start at the edges...

corners, even better

that big hole sure sucks attention.

piece by piece,, the intention emerges, embedded in nested unfolding cores of meaning.

lots of apparently unconnected moments and feelings fit, in such unpredictable ways

always liked jigsaw, did you ever do the night sky one?

pleasant way to learn.
