A stone by any other name would smell…

Well my niece weighed in on the great stone/poo affair and that did it! Announcing the withdrawal of the cover with the stone formerly known as Poo. I have left no stone unturned in my bid to love all and give unnecessary offence to none. 🙂 The carved side of the stone is duly presented to you now (as seen on Smashwords – it’s going up on Amazon kindle and Apple etc when they process it:

How to Love Everyone and Everything – Starting With a Stone

We assume we know what love is, and that we just ‘need more of it in the world’, but we have huge emotional and mental obstacles to actually attempting to be ‘more loving’ ourselves. Here are 7 things love ISN’T, and the one thing it IS – and it’s probably not what you think. Once we’re clear on what love is, we can be much more relaxed about practicing it in real life – starting with a stone… More
If you haven’t downloaded it already and read it and reviewed/rated it, I exhort you to now!  Here: How to Love Everyone and Everything – starting with a stone I think you  will like! It’s the most non-threatening book on love I know of 🙂

Can we love excrement?

Oh dear!   Started the year with a well-intentioned little ebook close to my heart called ‘How to Love everyone and Everything – starting with a stone’,  (uploaded here as a free ebook: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/604151 ) and the first Facebook comment I got was, ‘It looks like a turd…’ Back to earth with a thud! But the friend goes on to say ‘…Not a bad place to start though.’ And yes, I think it is… if we can reflect on what excrement is so good for – apart from keeping us alive by departing from our intestines! It turns to compost and fertilizes new life in abundance…

Here is the good author of Humanure, a book that should enthuse anyone about excrement – and horrify them about our present wasteful sewerage practices!

Ah, the circle of life! Some beauty to be found at every point, however humble… it all depends on our perspective. Thank you, life!

And now I have to quote Nietzsche on the matter:

“To the clean are all things clean”- thus say the people. I, however, say to you: To the swine all things become swinish!

Therefore preach the visionaries and bowed-heads (whose hearts are also bowed down): “The world itself is a filthy monster.”

For these are all unclean spirits; especially those, however, who have no peace or rest, unless they see the world from the backside – the afterworldly!

To those do I say it to the face, although it sound unpleasantly: the world resembles humanity, in that it has a backside – so much is true!

There is in the world much filth: so much is true! But the world itself is not therefore a filthy monster!

There is wisdom in the fact that much in the world smells badly: loathing itself creates wings, and fountain-divining powers!

In the best there is still something to loathe; and the best is still something that must be overcome!-

O my brothers, there is much wisdom in the fact that much filth is in the world!

– from Thus Spake Zarathustra,  Of Old and New Lawtables.

The wizard and the Quarry

Well I did it! A lot to do with agreeing with brother John, knight errant, to have a ‘fear-free week’ – which turned into a fear-free fortnight and maybe now Year. I got a little studio in the Quarry!

Number five. So tiny I’ll have to focus… this photo is up above on the mystic high shelf of the quarry, among the ‘ruins’ where I imagine the peripatetics might have wandered…

I feel a bit like my grandson Bruno upon gazing into an aquarium in a petshop:

I will have to get very organised to make this work, but I am pointing in the right direction.  The studio no. 5 houses me, the embossing and etching press, paints, and an easychair for thinking in. I am calling it (the studio) LoveQor , and hope to teach classes here on philosophy, especially the Logic of Love… which is not what we assume it is. Love is bigger than feeling, or duty. Love is what you might call true connection, openness to the other. It’s the start if everything good thing, in fact. Including prosperity. The new economy will make this clearer than ever before, I believe… see my new site, loveqor.com
