Re: Thanksgiving and Metacognition

I especially like this from Steiner. To me it seems quite like how an intuition often feels: And just as the eyes and ears of the physical body are built by natural forces out of living matter, so will the organs of clairvoyance build themselves out of the feelings and thoughts thus evoked. A quite ...

Re: Thanksgiving and Metacognition

To begin with, the attention of the soul is directed to certain events in the world that surrounds us. Such events are, on the one hand, life that is budding, growing, and flourishing, and on the other hand, all phenomena connected with fading, decaying, and withering. The student can observe these...

In the jazz department, Mal Waldron is my current fascination.

Re: Thanksgiving and Metacognition

Lou, that sounds like a great exercise. My only question is, why stop there? When you find a good tool which works, there is no reason to stop using it. Rather, it should be used deeply and often. Hey Ashvin, I actually had no intention of suggesting any kind of "stopping". Perhaps, you g...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

OK, my intuitive sensibility now back on track, I literally stumbled upon this extraordinary Oliver Sacks story of how music saved his life after a fall from a cliff during a foggy day morning hike in the Norwegian mountains where he Musicked Down the Mountain. I hope you can read it. It's an extra-...

The power of story.

This is a repost from the music thread. I'd love to read your personal take on the power of story in your own life. Are there stories of special importance or significance to you? Here's an archetypal legend that I truly love about what is named as the "Child Jesus of Prague." This story p...

Thanksgiving and Metacognition

There's topic that I'd like to address about becoming more aware. Lemme see if I, as a non-philosopher, can muster some passable lingo. First, let me acknowledge that despite the fact that I often squirm at the torrent of words, logic, concepts and the like along the Steiner path, I do think I grok ...

Re: Patterns and Meaning in Music

Oops, I got so caught by synchronicities with Eugene that I've wandered way off the music theme. Pretty much like every other topic posted in the 'general' section :D But I appreciate your good intentions. I confess that my intuitive ways are quick to connect more and more dots and disrespect the d...

Re: How to talk about God: on why God is not an object

BTW, if in conversation with a militant atheist (not recommended), and one defines or references God as not an object, they tend to scream 'special pleading, special pleading' I'd just go with the ever-present Origin is not an object, and confuse the shit out of them ;) I'm surprised to find that s...

Oops, I got so caught by synchronicities with Eugene that I've wandered way off the music theme. I like it though, so I'm gonna post it again under another theme.
