Zhuangzi interpretations?


General Talk

hmmm, haven't read any of this, would very much like to. thanks for sharing. when i first read the quote, i thought of this...every man's path is so personal no one else may walk it and it is experienced moment by moment. a particular person hasn't formed a path yet. i suppose i had to write a poem based on drawing a perfect circle around my self and describing what i see. it occured to me that absolutely no one else will ever see these things, in this perspective, at this moment... not even myself (again). does that make sense? it's like "be here, now," line of thought. bless up, yeah?

Another question about tams....


Dread Maintenance

hey, we have a lady near us that has alpaca's and does the yarn thing. it is soooo soft. a friend of mine made me a tam out of regular acrylic yarn. i wore it to bed and it gave me bad dreams (at least i'm pretty sure that's what did it). she also made me another out of soy silk and a crochette head scarf out of corn silk ("amaizing yarn"). those are really nice, and not so hot.

College


General Talk

i was a teen runaway, never even went to high school. needless to say, i was fucked up for a while. of course, i have an incredibly deep, twisted past, as most do. to make a really long story short, i got my ged when i was 27, went to college at 30, and it was hands down the best decision i ever made. just about any degree program you go through will require you to take amazing classes. some of my favorites were biology (btw, i'm a nurse), philosohphy, anthropology, psychology, bio-chemistry. remember...i never went to high school. barely made it through middle school. no science classes ever. i turned out to be an "A" average student, graduating in the top 3% of my class. i love to learn, but have an ineptitude when it comes to self-discipline and study. i typically trip along, absorbing, rather that systematically studying. this may work well for you. if, on the other hand, you need a little structure (ie:deadlines), then college is for you. if you are taking student loans, you should be sure you want to be there. oh yeah, you get paid a bit more if you have a degree. even though money isn't all that important in the eyes of people like us, the reality of the moment is that we live in a monetary based society. think about it this way...you could use your wealth to help support your community.

How to take steps towards eating healthy?


Dreads and Diets

oh hey...there is considerable debate over the meat issue, i see. that's gonna have to be up to you. i love the taste of meat, but my husband and i opt not to eat anything with a face. my choice involved a sad cow in the back of a trailer. i also got to a point that i decided if i was going to continue eating meat i should go hunting and kill something myself at least once. that thought really, really bothered me. so i won't depend on someone else to do it for me. anyhow, if you do want to continue eating meat, i (as a nurse and someone who has actually studied biochemistry, etc.) strongly urge you to eat pasture raised, orgainc meats (chicken, bison), even your eggs n cheese should be organic if possible. it's physically healthier for you, the animals, the planet. go find videos on feed lots (CAFO).

How to take steps towards eating healthy?


Dreads and Diets

hey there. i used to be a wal-mart shoppin', hambuger helper eatin' (including "tubed" hamburger, yuck), fast-food junkie. very, very unhealthy mind and body. that has all drastically changed in the past few years. we follow some simple rules now...local, organic, IN SEASON, vegetarian as much as we possibly can. we don't have land, or we'd be growing our own. something to keep in mind, esp. if ur on a budget (and organics can be sooo expensive), we no longer make a list first based on meal ideas for the week...we go buy whatever is FRESH, on sale at our little farmer's market, then plan meals from there. it's different for us, but it's working pretty well. don't know if your in to books n stuff, but i highly recommend "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle"...it'll completely change the way u think about food. it's about a family living off the "food grid" for one year. really, really good stuff. good luck. it's totally worth it. btw, i was never one that didn't gain a pound. i weighed in at 197 lbs and was totally sedentary. now i weigh 130, am really active, even started playing soccer at 40 years old. changing the food i put in my body did amazing things to my mental paradigm and my Spirit!!!

Good Grief!


Dreads in the Family

yeah, my mom just came to visit me and she hates 'em. fortunatly, she didn't tell me that. she tries not to be outwardly judgmental. she did, however, upon seeing lots of older dreads, ask when mine would look like that. "that's not so bad," she'd say. years, i told her, years. plus she just found out her best friends daughter grew up to be an internet porn star, so i can do no wrong in her eyes, lol. i do have a lot of people in my life that really, really loved my hair before. it was quite beautiful, long with lots of ringlette curls. my reasons for dreads are deeply personal and reflect my philosophy and personality, so mostly everyone has pretty much gotten over it, or will ,or won't...that's ok too. as long as i like em, right?

Introduce Yourself

thanks...hoping to get some newer pics up soon. camera is outta commish at the moment. btw, i saw on another posting of urs that u use bronner's. that's what i use. it's the only thing i can seem to get rinsed out. i don't dilute it. should i? i only wash twice a week, unless i get grubby somehow and have to work. occasionally i put essential oil (a bit of jojoba with lavander or rosemary oil). what do u think of that?

Introduce Yourself

i'm shannon. i'm a nurse and i live in southern oregon. i have been with my man for 11 years, we have 3 great kids at home and another grown. i am almost 40 years old. that is partially why i started dreading this year. my wandering in the wilderness is over, i'm entering the land of milk n honey, and my dreads symbolize my freedom. i did fall (stupidly) prey to the promises of dreadheadhq. because i'm a nurse, i couldn't simply stop brushing my hair. i didn't want to be totally cheesy and go to a shop. so i had my girlfriends do some sectioning and backcombing to get started. at least i'd have their energies locked up in there, right? from the jump, that didn't work out well. i've learned my lessons. many, many a mature dready kept telling me to simply leave them alone. now, my dreads are just doin' their thing, whatever that turns out to be. i do like it way better. lots of fun, seeing how they change over time. right now, they r at the shrinkage phase. fortunatly, i am well established in my job and my bosses didn't freak (too much). i also work nightshift, so don't really have to deal with doctors and such too often. dreads are pretty common in these parts, as well. that helps. love n light to all out there...shannon (aunty dread).
