BREATH

"You begin by breath control, by breathing to certain paces, and the breath is very curious … The notion is that emotion and feeling and state of mind are related to breath. When you are at rest, the breathing is in a nice, even order. When you are stirred with shock, the breathing changes. With passion the breathing changes. Change the breathing, and you change the state." (Joseph Campbell)

Wayne Horvitz lecture: A Lumberjack's Prayer
http://www.divshare.com/download/13832757-377

What do Trade Unionism, Elliott Smith, Sly and the Family Stone, twentieth century avant-garde music, the Lord’s Prayer, Johannes Bach, John Coltrane, Malcolm X, music downloading, Aesop Rock, the demise of print journalism, NPR and The Wire all have in common?

REFLECTION


















I really wish I knew who created this piece. I received it from a friend the other day and it startled me - like seeing a thought/feeling outside my brain. poetry.

MY TWO CENTS

I think we need to stop. STOP. and really recognize where we are....take a deep breath, and have compassion for our past ignorance....THEN move forward with open eyes, ears & minds, engaging in a cooperative and collaborative dialogue with each other and our environment.

We have evolved to a point that anything else seems absolutely absurd and knowingly destructive. WTF?
