Stop coddling your dog—he’s 99.9% wolf | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
SANTA CLARITA, California—Cesar Millan crosses the road to meet me. Two pit bulls, a Chihuahua, and a Yorkshire terrier—named Junior, Taco, Alfie and Kaley Cuoko—follow. Off leash and at heel, the dogs are calm, almost languid. If Millan communicates with them, I do not notice. For the past few minutes, I have been paying my...

Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

Would not art be more profound and meaningful if there was no economic value or market for it that in many ways dictates what one will create? If all art was generated out of love, would not this have a direct benefit on society as a whole? Could we not see ourselves for who we truly are?  This self expression could have a transformative effect because we could willingly look in the mirror and see the state of ourselves and the world. Why not? Yes, why not try something like this.

Rafal T. Prinke - Hunting the Blacke Toade

Rafal T. Prinke - Hunting the Blacke Toade | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

“The opposites and their symbols are so common in the texts that it is superfluous to cite evidence from the sources. On the other hand, in view of the ambiguity of the alchemists’ language, which is “tam ethice quam physice” (as much ethical as physical), it is worth while to go rather more closely into the manner in which the texts treat of the opposites. Very often the masculine-feminine opposition is personified as King and Queen (in the Rosarium philosophorum also as Emperor and Empress), or as servus (slave) or vir rubeus (red man) and mulier candida (white woman);5 in the “Visio Arislei” they appear as Gabricus (or Thabritius) and Beya, the King’s son and daughter.6 Theriomorphic symbols are equally common and are often found in the illustrations.7 I would mention the eagle and toad (“the eagle flying through the air and the toad crawling on the ground”), which are the “emblem” of Avicenna in Michael Maier,8 the eagle representing Luna “or Juno, Venus, Beya, who is fugitive and winged like the eagle, which flies up to the clouds and receives the rays of the sun in his eyes.” The toad “is the opposite[…]”

9 Amazing Benefits of Coffee - Lifespan | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
Coffee has become the subject of thousands of surveys in the past few years. Known as a simple stimulant it also has many other properties. Here are some of the most interesting statistics we could put together for proponents of coffee for healthier living. 1.Lower Mortality At least 5% of surveys reveal that drinking coffee is associated with a decreased risk of mortality in men and women. For example, a long and large-scale survey, which studied more than 400,000 people, revealed that more coffee the men drink, the lower is their risk of mortality. By the survey results, men who

Soul Spelunker » Treasure of the Unfathomable

Soul Spelunker » Treasure of the Unfathomable | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it

Everything we empirically experience is myth and metaphor. All that we experience with the senses points to a parallel archetypal reality. As above, so below. The universe we experience everyday hints at the universe within. This is why, say in Zen Buddhism, for example, one can learn more about Truth by pondering a flower than by taking all the psychology courses in the world. There is more Truth in a tree than in all the science textbooks in all the universities in the world. But we must remember. The Ars Memoriae provides us with a methodology whereby we can do just that.

GDP and the Public Sector

GDP and the Public Sector | Pahndeepah Perceptions | Scoop.it
The reality is that the government and the economy are so thoroughly integrated it is impossible to separate the two.
Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

GDP is telling us the value of goods and services the economy produced. It is not telling us whether the pollution that results is killing us, whether it all went to produce weapons and prisons, or whether Bill Gates and his kids pocket it all. We need other measures to evaluate such things, and we have them, but they are not GDP.

Keith Wayne Brown's insight:

As a society, we may be conditioned by the historical root of the word power, though, which, as Hillman explains, is poti, i.e. “husband, lord, master,” echoed in the word “despote,” which was used by Greek slaves to address their masters. What we need to learn right now as humans is to exercise our power without dominating anyone, without pathological control and oppression.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 5, 10:03 AM

I am beginning to read Hillman's work. Power is natural flowing phenomenon. How we respond to the flow of power is essential. Awareness is important. Judith Butler says discourse contains power. When I began to worry less about the role School managers played in my work, the more effective I became in my work. I worried about power as something which I had, as well, focusing on the way I used that power.
