Quora Self-Care

I recently posted this answer on Quora.

This recipe rescued me from debilitating issues that kept me bedridden for the better part of 4years between 2012 and 2016.  My big turnaround came from protocol I built after years of research and study.

I hope you’ll gain as much benefit from it as I have throughout my life.

With blessings,

Q: How do I get rid of the shakes?

A:

1. Find out the cause. Do you drink coffee or alcohol take cocaine or other drugs? Do you eat 3 properly balanced meals a day (low blood sugar can make you shake)? Have you been in some accident or other physical trauma? Is the trigger emotional, biochemical, environmental, etc? Have you done comprehensive blood work including a nutritional panel and find out what deficiencies may be contributing to issues? Do you have habits of thought that contribute to tension, anxiety or panic? Have you seen an endocrinologist and/or a neurologist? Do you maintain proper electrolyte and water balance in your system? You may have to uncover multiple contributing factors before you can resolve your issue.

2. Give your system the support it needs. If the cause is psychological, get the psychological and emotional support you need (ex: an experienced counselor like me, or a licensed therapist). If the cause is physical, get a functional medicine doctor or nutritional counselor or some other professional who can help you track, repair and eliminate deficiencies. Do you test positive for MTHFR? Do you have heavy metal overload? Do you have fungal or other infections? Do you take probiotics for a healthy gut? You may have to heal multiple systems to resolve your issue.

3. Exercise. If you have an extraordinarily advanced, zen psychology and your blood work shows no deficiencies (practically impossible – most Americans are deficient in zinc, magnesium, iodine, vitamin K, choline and other essential nutrients), then you may need to try yoga or other meditative practices, along with other forms of exercise, that entrain your electrical system to calm, balance, strength, flexibility and endurance. Insufficient exercise can be a contributing factor.

Just like a luxury performance car, human beings are multi-faceted creatures with many systems. If you want your body to work better, you and your system support structures need to get better. In my work, we explore 10 aspects of the human system, all needing to work well together if you want to avoid and resolve problems.

Laughing with the Dark

One path to Divine Peace is the path of balance, moderation, The Middle Way.  This path is a dance with, not against opposites. Yin and yang, darkness and light, both / and; the practice resists nothing, because anything we seek to resist is a mirror of our own opportunities to increase our own self-awareness, freedom and Divine Self-expression.

Paradoxically, however, integrating the darkness can’t be done while we’re resisting it. To integrate the darkness is to face the paper tiger (and I assure you, the paper is thin), to plummet into the abyss so deeply that there’s nothing left but to laugh at the absurdity of it all. Dance the Sacred Theater of the horrible macabre that you fear, unresisted, for just 90 seconds, and watch how it melts and transforms.

If the individual can watch the shadow with pure observation, from the depths of darkness we rise like the Phoenix, enlightened of our significance, full of humility, surrender, compassion and an extraordinary sense of humor, able to move fluidly and matter-of-factly again into the ever-renewing Now.

Ambi-Brained AI Dev Possibilities

I’ve just posted the following at this page:

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/enlightenment-vs-integrated-intelligence-twain-liu/

Twain, hallelujah. In attemping to apply empathy and Emotional Intelligence to current tools in AI, I have come to the same conclusion again and again: garbage in, garbage out. While the bulk of our human understanding (and that of the bulk of AI developers) is inherently dominantly left-brained or right-brained, the outcomes of AI can only reveal and mirror our human limitations. Truly powerful development of AI will require stewards of more ambi-hemispheric, trans-developmental perspectives if we are to uncover the key(s) that can (computationally) fractally grow from origin seeds, to “learning”, “comprehension”, and beyond. AI of this nature would quickly, for example, be capable of a trans-conventional, trans-relativistic and trans-post-postmodern morality-beyond-morality, rivaling that of the master mystics (far beyond the comprehensional capacity of the majority of human beings) and would reveal to humanity a new stage in our collective development – the opportunity to differentiate the nature of mechanistic “thinking” from the more subtle, transpersonal aspects of Consciousness, allowing us to finally extend exploration in the sciences beyond a “separate parts” approach, into a “whole dynamic systems” approach and beyond, revealing to us greater awareness of the nature of Nature. I look forward to reading more of your work, and doing all I can to contribute to the birth of this new generation of AI. My compliments! – Maya Gail Taylor

Grow And Diffuse

I had a dream – it was Post Apocalypse. Few of us were left. People were talking about preventing starvation by gathering supplies from what was left. I told them that gathering remnant supplies was insufficient, soon we will run out of supplies to gather. We need to think about replenishing supplies. We need to plan to grow sufficient crops to feed our people, repicably, year after year.

But then it became clear that no one in our group knows how to grow food. I tell them life is resilient. I tell them we need to find seeds and plant them. I tell them we need to find food already growing in the earth. Finally everyone is on board, and the group disperses.

Then I was walking the perimeter of our camp, and I found explosive charges in the ground. Some were inert, already detonated, but some were still live charges. Very dangerous, these could kill people. I set about attempting to safely detonate the charges, one by one. It occurred to me that while human beings exist, there will always be someone making bombs, planting charges, that could explode in dangerous moments. Growing food is not enough. There also needs to be a cultural process for defusing charges before people get violent or get killed. Both are necessary in order to sustain a healthy population.

(Charges does not only refer to physical explosive devices. The word “charge” is also used to describe emotional states, as in, “It’s an emotionally charged subject.” The dream clearly points to addressing the aspect of human nature that innocently (and sometimes not so innocently) generates charges against other, charged subjects and charged situations.

At the end of the dream, someone else joined me. I was asked why I was doing this, if most vital thing to do now is to grow food. I replied, “what is the value of sustaining our population if we wind up getting our legs blown off by live charges anyway?” I explained that this function (diffusing the charges) is also necessary if we don’t want to blow ourselves up just walking around in our day-to-day life. I said that if there is no process among our individuals to diffuse charges, soon there are no safe places to walk without getting blown up.

I then taught the other how to safely diffuse the charges with me, and the two of us set about to our work.

Incidentally, I believe the best practice here is culturally practiced needs-conscious empathy for self, needs-consciousness empathy for other, and mediation based in needs consciousness and restorative justice.

How to Ruin a Conversation

I’m learning a lot, so I thought I’d share. Plus if you’re really good, you can use these to ruin an entire relationship, not just a conversation. Good luck!

1. Respond to others’ playfulness with contradictory statements instead of a simple smile. Do Not follow the improvisational rule of “yes – and…”, not even for two seconds. That’s too dangerous.

2. Hear others’ expression of pain as a personal criticism. Take it very personally. Get butt hurt. Don’t be curious about what is alive in them. Above all, do Not consider that you might have accidentally stepped on toes in the first place.

3. Talk all about yourself. For 10 minutes, 20 minutes, a half hour, 2 hours even. Don’t ask questions about the other person. Above all, do Not be curious.

3.5  If you do make the mistake of asking a question, be sure to interrupt the reply mid-sentence. Return to point 3.

3.75 Fill every spare second with talk, preferably about yourself. Don’t take a breath after you speak. Definitely don’t take 2 breaths. And be sure to start talking As Soon as the other person’s face hole has taken a tiny pause. Return to item 3.

4. Assume you know, Everything. There’s no way it’s possible someone has a valid point of view you haven’t considered. No way. You’ve travelled the world, you’ve seen it all, surely you must know it All. You’re Omniscient. You’re God.

5. Make everything you encounter “good” or “bad”. It’s not possible that there is no such thing as good and bad, only different perspectives. Above all, be sure to apply this to yourself. It’s not that all things can be both good/bad depending on the situation, it’s that You are bad, or good. There’s no both/and. And there’s no grey area.

6. When someone else is trying to tell you their feelings and needs to resolve an issue, attack them for being “overly sensitive” or for “giving you a hard time”. Resolving issues is Such a Bother.

7. Be fearful. Presume the new person you’re talking to must be crazy. Call them names as soon as you can and run screaming for the hills. Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

8. Do not take in what people tell you. If they tell you they aren’t available, insist they contact you so that You can feel better. Disregard their boundaries. If they say they don’t want single line emails, don’t listen, don’t honor their requests. See item 6.

9. Focus on the past. That was terrible. Oh no saying that was terrible too. Forget that there is a person, right here, right now, standing in front of you. Don’t smile, don’t laugh. You have more important things to think about than what’s right here right now. That was terrible. When this fails, try item 10.

10. Focus on the future. Run that train of projection and fantasy wayyyyy off into the land of what we could do. Or build a scary scenario in your mind about the horrors. Either way, forget that there’s a person you could look at, right here, right now. Don’t look them in the eye. Don’t just Be with them right now. Hey, what are your plans for next month? Oh, and remember to get butt hurt when they ask for one step at a time. See point 6.  When this fails, return to item 9.

11. Never take responsibility for your actions. If it’s pointed out that you stepped on toes, or acted out one of the items in this list, quickly and without reservation Deny, Deny, Deny! Then spin it and ridicule them for speaking up. See item 6 for ideas.  How dare they!

Congratulations!  Now you’re well on your way to ruining conversations and relationships!

Have fun!

Current Puppetry

For what it’s worth, and with great vulnerability, here’s a node of my current bodymind puppetry.  I’m posting this as a fishing expedition, because I’m feeling quite truly at my wits’ end.  What do you think?  Email me privately please.  Mayagayam at gmail.

Once upon a time, the strategy was to land myself within a “co-created community of gnostic / priesty peers” – and if I couldn’t find it I tried to create it around me. But travelling the world I didn’t find it; my current energy levels limit most travel. Then I learned that to make community is too slow and too much wrestling – far more work than I want to manage, and takes far more directing / driving than I enjoy.

What was that strategy attempting to feed, anyway? This question brings me to this –

I am still dealing with this existential crisis – what do I do with the body to:
– care for my needs for belonging
– care for my needs for purpose (which would give me clarity and direction)
– provide for my needs for care, comfort and security for the body
– care for my needs for touch, sexual expression, and companionship
– care for my needs for community where I feel seen and wanted, met and appreciated, loved and desired
– care for my need to exercise the feminine and the capacities and the mystic and the I Am of me, in tandem with the body
– care for my needs for engagement and joy in my gnostic-heartful-sexy-playful-intelligent-tipheret ways and beyond
– all within a context of fluidity, ease, restfulness, balance and in integrity with myself
?

The answer to this would answer other questions like, “what do I choose relative to the other puppets I meet along the way?”

?

And, I’m aware that this is all fundamentally nothing more than puppet talk. I remember the conversation asking me to come here.  Who sent me here to begin with and why?

— update, end of March —

Well in the absence of human response to this post, nonetheless the Guardians Guide.  I find the answer is in the question itself.  I read “Dragon’s Play” section 9, and I feel mySelf again.  Thank you all for reading.

A Dream of Bipartisan Resolution

WE…don’t resolve anything…like This.

WE…Resolve things….when we sit Together….side-by-side…and ask,
“What do you Value?”.

Notice I didn’t ask, “What do you WANT?”  Because if you ask a CEO what he Wants, and he says he wants a million dollars, well what if we don’t Have a million to Give him?  We’re stuck and fighting again.

We ask, “What do you VALUE?”

Now if INDEPENDENCE is what he values, now we can find out ways to do That in a way that works for Everyone.

We Sit Down, and we Figure It OUT…
Together.
