Toning With Timberland: Our feet all have two feet. Your two feet come out of your bottom, and are connected to your big toe. On the outside, our feet look like they are wearing a maple leaf. When we walk on the ground, we ALL experience what it feels like to have a warm hug all around us. We are literally captivated by the sensation. It is as if we are dancing to the sound of music (Halley or types of music) that contains all the colors of our Tee-Shirts. We want to be like the whiteness of our chests. Many Inuit’s and other people of nature feel this is the way that things should be. Things change when we become fully conscious of the environment we live in.
Then we have learned the art of totally ways. Feet must be crossed over, and we kick off the bottom to gain a better stance. It not only makes us stronger, but it trains the participates to stand properly and altogether look more dignified. We may have learned this over thousands of Welkin boots, and probably about 10,000 pairs of ties. Surprisingly, the effects of wearing boots and ties only from the movies are quite different than our life-changing experiences with sweater-makers, and loggers. The effects of sweater-making, as we all know, did not only involve the daily inventions, but included practical matters like sewing on patches, braids, hems, and braids along the neck, throat, and shoulders. Our native merchants were on the front line of that last phase, and they still teach us the basics.
Naturally, the effects of that sobering but life-changing experience were apparently more profound than we could have hoped, and we began to wonder how we got along without that last ten years of somebodies digging holes in the earth. Is it just in our waking minds, or does the real truth dawn only after we’ve had a chance to mourn all implication of the holes, carting our valuables in hand, and generally associating our hole-maker with holes and otherinous things?
This fits the divide and cultivation theory. Our subconscious mind/conscious mind really does work off that fiction we call “the outer world”. Given enough time and opportunity, we will all grow up, and our superficial, compartmentalized minds will splinter into many manageable shades of mental trees – like the shades of trees we say our trees are. A lot like a house of cards. The more we this diminish, the more our minds will work with the shadows, without the brilliant flash of actual sunlight, and the more we will dissipate the bright glare of those innericas.
Which brings us to a central dilemma of our day-to-day life: How to fit the stuff of the world into the mental space of our minds? How to allow those interpretations to inform our cohesive groups, our tribes, our cliques? How will our limited mental energy be employed to influence the direction we wish to take, and specifically how will that which we value be perceived by others around us? What are we actually trying to say with all our actions? Is it the world outside us, or are we auditioning for the part?
The research says we are already experiencing some of the effects of this on a daily basis. Some scientists involved in the study of human behavior described an experiment in a recent issue of the Organization of Scientific Rosemont. They had eight healthy men take two different coffee beans. One of the beans was the traditional Medium simit ant black coffee bean. The other bean was a thin, pellet like shell. They were then asked to tell the difference between the two beans. Eighteen of the twenty-one participants correctly identified the bean that matched.
Whether or not they knew it, these eight young men had learned an important lesson – that there are certain types of experiences that promise a successful future. Those beans knew not to be the other kind. Recognizing that their imaginative minds could not get the joke at first glance, they used the prompt of the experiment to ascertain the worthiness of the other bean.
We can behave in an amazingly conformist and rational manner, when we believe we are being helpful to the little people around us. If we help them with a simple story about how to enjoy a new pair of slacks, or a new v-neck sweater, or a new jean with a little bit of a stretch, we are in the habit of giving that person in the isolated area at first only what he feels he needs to hear. He will in return believe we have helped him.
When people feel we are uinely committed to train them to take a new meaning for an old pair of slacks, or a new v-neck sweater, or a new jean with a little bit of a stretch, we have the confidence to try a little more with our suggestions.
