they will again resurface, usually when and in ways you may not expect them to,
No doubt they do play a part. Horses and rabbits love eating them when the thorns are still in their green and tender/crunchy stage. Rabbits feed the coyotes, foxes, bobcats, hawks and crows. All part of the chain.
(from LiSe of course! )Amaranth land. Very resolute. Move central.
they sure sound as "Very resolute"!But boy are they murder to walk on once they harden like nails, and prolific!
We humans have no idea what following means, really...

Inner check: am I straying too much? better restrain that 16, over-
I asked about a kind of paranoia of someone, always about the same thing, feeling harassed by the municipality. In my eyes it was not at all the case.
(from wikipedia)The Bark Scorpion is the most venomous scorpion in North America, and its venom can cause severe pain (coupled with numbness and tingling) in adult humans, typically lasting between 24 to 72 hours. Temporary disfunction in the area stung is common; e.g. a hand or possibly arm can be immobilized or experience convulsions. It also may cause the loss of breath for a short period of time. Due to the extreme pain induced, many victims describe sensations of electrical jolts after envenomation.
said in true 80s pop spirit!I drove my chevy to the levy that day.
that sounds like quite of a shock I'd say!!
hmm, I think we need to re-define "real damage" lol!!
I've been stung twice so far this year (meaning last 12 months) by bark scorpions, the venomous kind, which can climb. They shock a bit, but do no real damage.
PS: That's like totally 80's. I drove my chevy to the levy that day.
Btw, I had no idea you have a grown son.
... I would love to read your own stories, experiences, images, smells, thoughts, dreams, myths, histories about what you know / understand as Gui region, anything that seems to click really, just to bring into the light this labyrinth and the strange creatures that reside it ...
The Illustrious Ancestor
Disciplines the Devil's Country.
After three years he conquers it.
Inferior people must not be employed.
"Illustrious Ancestor" is the dynastic title of the Emperor Wu Ting of the Yin
dynasty. After putting his realm in order with a strong hand, he waged long
colonial wars for the subjection of the Huns who occupied the northern
borderland with constant threat of incursions.
... After times of completion, when a new power has arisen and everything within the country has been set in order, a period of colonial expansion almost inevitably follows... The territory won at such bitter cost must not be regarded as an almshouse for people who in one way or another have hade themselves impossible at home... the urge to expand,
with its accompanying dangers, is part and parcel of every ambitious undertaking.
The sense is this matter is going to require alot of effort so its a question of are you going to take this battle on...is it worth it ? Brad wrote something about this on a thread here I'll link if i can find it further down, about how you have to ask if this is something you really really want to do
A pit is a trap, not a path, you cannot follow through; it is a niche, but the wrong
one to occupy/QUOTE]
of course I earned unique lessons -would I make the choice again? No, once was enough, I think I know as much as I need. But as I said, one is who one is, and the tendencies that led you down one path are always there, and thru time I guess they expand or contract. . . . . . . . Ok, maybe i can see a choice right here when i'm saying I would not want to go down that road again
I do think sometimes though that choices, or decisions are so much driven from some essential need that they are just a rationalization of what we would do anyways . . we can really fool ourselves that much
So far in my own readings I feel the devils can be the hidden resistances to a project but I'm never exactly sure whether its advice to carry on..or not...despite great rewards at the end..it all sounds very exhausting doesn't it
glad you bought it up for discussion anyway, i too would like to hear peoples thoughts on it
. . I think the exhausting part is trying to acknowledge their existence in an effective way . . maybe tuck them to sleep?
I guess it depends on how ferocious they've come to be. It's nice though to be at a point where you can just shrug them off!
Luis, really cool! I can not imagine a better way to get over a fear than by crunching into it AND finding it tasty!!
it looks like you have every good reason to be proud!
my back got really strained due to my absent-mindedness; luckily no permanent damage done, but it did scare the hell out of me
thank you for all the work you've put to give a translation here! I'll really have to study it more, but for the time being I find very hard to follow your comment
Strangers, plain people, like us, not concerned with noble rulers interests, not concerned with war but with love. Maybe too much feeling but little understanding
Love and war come close together at times . . perhaps a good night's sleep will help me see a way to turn what now appears a battlefield into a site of grace
I wanted to write a few things about how this 63.3 is unfolding for me (a strange mixture of experiences really) but I'll try to do that the following days -now it's getting too late and nothing good will come out of this head uch:
I will leave you though with today's morning song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ip1zsUIosoA&feature=related
it's either my subconscious is throwing an 80s revival party, or I don't know what! lol!! (but I just can't believe the styling of that decade )
Mind monkey or Monkey mind, from Chinese xinyuan and Sino-Japanese shin'en 心猿 [lit. "heart-/mind-monkey"], is a Buddhist term meaning "unsettled; restless; capricious; whimsical; fanciful; inconstant; confused; indecisive; uncontrollable". In addition to Buddhist writings, including Chan or Zen, Consciousness-only, Pure Land, and Shingon, this "mind-monkey" psychological metaphor was adopted in Daoism, Neo-Confucianism, poetry, drama, and literature. "Mind-monkey" occurs in two reversible four-character idioms with yima or iba 意馬 [lit. "thought-/will-horse"]
The Tang Dynasty poet Xu Hun 許渾 (fl. 832-844) wrote the first known parallel between "mind-monkey" and "idea-horse." His Zengti Du yinju 贈題杜隱居 "Poem Written for Sir Du the Recluse" says: "Nature exhausts the mind-monkey's hiding, spirit disperses the idea-horse's moving/stopping. Guests who come ought to know this: both self and world are unfeeling."
The Song Dynasty poet Zhu Yi 朱翌 (1098-1186 CE) reversed the Tang lyrical xinyuanyima expression into yimaxinyuan "will-horse mind-monkey". His Shuixuanshi 睡軒詩 "Sleeping Porch Poem" says: "Haste is useless with the idea-horse and mind-monkey, so take off your baggage someplace deep within dreamland."
The 1223 Kaidōki 海道記 "Record of Coast Road Travels" was a travelogue of the Tōkaidō (road) from Kyoto to Kamakura. It used shinsen 心船 "heart/mind boat" meaning "imaginary journey" with iba 意馬 "idea/will horse" and wrote arasaru 荒猿 "wild monkey" for arasu 荒す "treat roughly/wildly": "I rowed the mind-boat for make-believe. As yet, I neither poled across myriad leagues of waves on the Coast Road, nor roughly rode the idea-horse to urge it on through clouds of the distant mountain barrier."
While monkey mind has come to have a negative connotation, it also has a vital purpose. The reason it exists is to process information necessary for both survival and problem-solving. These are functions that are as significant as any other body function; the challenge is that, by virtue of its role, it continuously handles information. Monkey mind is activated due to system overload when there is more information than mental processing bandwidth.
Maybe too much feeling but little understanding
