“The state of mind of the photographer creating is a blank. I might add that this condition exists only at special times, namely when looking for pictures. (Something keeps him from falling off curbs, down open manholes, into bumpers of skidding trucks while in this condition but goes off duty at other times.) ... This is a very special kind of blank. A very active state of mind really, it is a very receptive state ...”

Best Good

n

“I am [Christian] by birth, or my mother was and father was, and so forth. My early teachings were in the Christian faith. And now, as I look out upon the world, and it’s always been a thing with me to feel that all men know the truth, see? So therefore I have always felt that even though a man was not a Christian, he could know the truth in some way. Or if he was a Christian, he could know the truth, or he could not … The truth itself doesn’t have any name on it. To me. Each man has to find this for himself, I think.

I believe that men are here to grow themselves into the best good that they can be. This is what I want to do, this is my belief: that I’m supposed to grow to the best good hat I Can get to. As I’m going there, becoming this, and if I ever become this, it will just come out of the horn. So whatever I will be, it will be. I’m not interested in trying to say what it will be, I don’t know. But I believe that good will only bring good.”

Indulging in Discipline

n

This morning:

I didn’t get on the mat to practice.

A part of me wanted to have breakfast.
Another part of me didn’t have an appetite (it’s a voice that appears during the hot summer months).

The part that didn’t have an appetite did want a cup of coffee.
The part that wanted breakfast thought that wasn’t a great idea.

Indulgence?
Discipline?

So I stood and deliberated and ended up having two slices of bread with ghee and then a nice cup of coffee 🙂

A Good and Illustrated Samasthiti

n

A couple of miscalculations that were surprisingly quickly and easily corrected transformed yesterdays lousy samasthiti into todays perfectly illustrated samasthiti.

Then by just changing 3 numbers – a leg is raised:

And of course – the control points are only optional:

Next up – making this all interactive: making the control points clickable and dragable on the screen and then translating their movement into changes in the posture – which is much easier and more fun to do then calculating and changing numbers.
