About Me

My photo

I am a mystic madman, a wandering wildman, scholar of esoterica, dilettante sadhu, dready-headed hippie (only have a few jata on the back of my head right now, though more be forming of this third set of knotted hair), gentle yogi, fierce foe of falsity. I was a preacher, but I renounced that. I was married, but she renounced me. I was a grad student at one of the top universities in the world on my way to becoming a professor, but I realized they taught lies there too. I am protector of souls, lover of mountains, smoker of herb, fond of hot springs, oceans and lakes and rivers and rain and sunshine, devotee of Devi.

Devi Three, Tridevi, Lovely Love Indeed . . .

She show Herself in so many faces, feminine forms, lovely woman women wonderous She.  Devi Durga, "inaccessible" yet present in so many faces, beautiful women and terrible, for She is their true person when they find that expression of Self each of these expression of, Tridevi and other manifestations, Parvati, Laksmi, Saraswati, not necessarily in that order in a given instant or instance, and most primally as I conceive, 'tis relationship Siva-Sakti, Universal andd forever, though not without those others, too, see?

Perspective's not everything, but explains much of what differentiates, culture of romance, devotions variegated like fractiles of symmetries, Deva-Devi in so many manifestations are not not all and each of us, multi-faceted, wild, instinctual and transcendant.  And we are playing, lila lovely lila.  Beloved and lover, and inversely, and sometimes played as even oppositional roles, hero or heroine, villain villainess, interchangably to a degree and in means well explored and known, but played as anew, adventure with only those bounds ensures the dramas play out pure and towards perfection (already always present throughout, of course) without puritanical (except perhaps playfully, roles writ to make for a good story, hee hee), and in fact exhuberant and passionate and sometimes appropriately naughty, hee hee.  Tantra yoga bhakti yoga karma yoga, kama as servant and not master in this life lived dharmika.

Cranes in the median, and truly green buildings . . .

Saw a pair of sandhill cranes grazing next to a stripmall and in the midst of stripmalls, fast food and box stores along the highway. Not to by any means justify the proliferation of such centers of consumer decadence, but to note the resiiance of nature, which will continue if and after human "civilization" falters and falls into decay . . .

If they gonna build a mall, make 'em put the forest they cut down on the rooftop, with a ramp for wildlife to climb to the forest's new elevation !!! If they gonna build a high-rise, make the architect design terraces spiralling around and up the building with gardens and a graywater retreival system including a creek flowing down the spiralling terraces around the outside of offices and condos, providing habitat for birds and small mammals, and maybe some reptiles and fish, too, as well as a healthier environment for workers and city-dwellers. A green roof park on top, too, of course. A this would also clean the air, absorb CO2 and other pollution, and absorb the heat pockets cities create, as well as providing natural insulation for these buildings, cooling them in summer and holding in heat in the winter. Perhaps to some extent glassing in the terraces in winter in colder northern climates, with pathways for widlife to enter and exit, carefully engineering the airflow to allow said means for keeping nature and humanity in touch and connected. Healthier for environment, healthier for humans.
