Regrets, and a shift in philosophy

I see what needs to happen now. I was unhappy with some of my dreads. They looked braided and I disliked the way they felt.Those will eventually fall apart, like most of my other T&R dreads. That is nature destroying my art. I'm okay with that, because my art was unbalanced, lacking natural influence. Everything is shifting toward equilibrium.From my perspective, you're missing a step in your change of outlook to one more aligned to the naturalistic viewpoint... By once again putting your hands into your hair, you're -again- fiddling with the very thing that you've stated you want to leave alone and let the Mother take charge of. Leave it be and let nature -change- what you've initiated.I haven't missed a step. I just haven't (or hadn't) yet gotten there. It's all a process, like everything else, apparently including my ridiculous hair. Putting my hands in to fiddle is not an unnatural act. The way and the amount that I fiddle with my hair determines the balance point between natural chaos and human influence. Only by contributing order and intent will art and nature blend.

My hands and my intent are as natural as my hair and my heartbeat. "Natural" is subjective, and to me, it demands love and care, not neglect..

This is the exact reason that I couldn't go 100% 'natural' or 'neglect' those two seem to be synonomous in the dreading world, and they in no way, shape or form go together in my mind.Ryan Emmel said:

For now, I feel good about the way things are going. Hopefully I'll continue to learn and develop, even if that means facing more turmoil.hippie mama said:

That may be so. My mind will not encircle infinity, so I can't be sure myself. But in that case, and on that scale, hair is most insignificant.Chronic said:

Very good post. Yes we've all been there, you decide where you want to go from here, just don't ...cut.And yes, it's all natural, but there is more natural.
