I saw this (very short) comic at Bikey Face: bikeyface.com/2015/12/10/see-the-signs/
I wondered what you thought about this. Are signs useful, or not?
Me personally : in the famious words of Freddy Mercury-I want to ride my bicycle....
dude to much is too much don't you think?
Book of Change: 29th chapter: my translation:: one cannot succeed if one attempts to gain the entire world, sacred is the Earth, the vessels which we tamper then spoil and grab then lose for all things there can be a time. Time for going, a time for following, for breathing, a time to breathe quick. A time to grow and a time to decay. A time to rise and a time to be down. The wise will be weary of excess.
Sometimes I find in my own Jediism; too much help. Flat out I have to unplug, I have to walk away.
Kind of like manners Alan Watts says."what happens when you out-manner everyone? What happens when there is no one left to out-manner? Or do you use your manners to enjoy your meal? And your time, to show respect, and your values? What does it create?" In your practice, what does it create?
That should be the driving question of most of our balance, don't you think? What does it create? Should I have a lane dedicated to riding my bicycle? Or should I fret and worry about traffic and not be able to enjoy my bicycle ride? Will my manners upset every balance? And create problems or will it give me 20 minutes to sit across the table and have some tea with you? To enjoy our time together....and maybe some scones. What do u think ?
A bump has appeared !
Feel free to use this part to ask the good stuff !

Great question .
What do you want to do with it? What do you know can be done with it ? Have you ever seen results you like ?
Fear is quite possibly one of the more stronger and the most un developed forces out there.
What type of fear do you face ? Knowing the emigdula exist and In studying the human brain some of us can come to a point where we can identify and even ignore some types of fears . Some are much harder I admit but with practice anything can be mastered and anything can be ... developed. During war - soldiers are know to Channel fear and use it to create new senses ... people durimg
fear have demonstrated miraculous feats of strength and bravery and action ...without the notice of obvious dangers. ... inspite of the obvious fear present. There are a many things fear can do OTHER than cripple or lead blindly. The annoying fear with practice in awareness, often leads to a less ... persuasive idea of not thinking . What is it you wanna do with it now that you have noticed it !? Do you realize you have noticed it now? Does that fear keep you or does it drive you ? Does it create or does it distort and destroy? In the end ... we can do so much more with fear if we just ... practice what we would like to do when it appears . Faithfulness finds favor ... frequency and application in fear often dims the" strong" hold. Give us back the power instead of bothering us . Pm directly if you like or Skype or here ! Hope this helps a bit !!
I have grown to a point where if I notice a fear ...
it sets off a chosen path of thought ... a home ... is called ... a retake is called for ... a light goes ... bing ... and says come back.... and I come back and re evaluate things. I go thru check lists and check my self and evaluate not only my situation but my mind set and my intention. Takes some practice but it happens now quicker than the fear of run away or un activity.
In other words when fear comes I'm ready. I count on my character to guide me . My character I choose and have found and have studied and have meditated on... go time ! Activate choices! And I got a list ... trust me and I defiantly know how I DONT want to act when fear arives! Lol
I can encourage every one as a human being to have ready what we like and how we want to act. May take some searching but it's well worth the time and effort

So trusting, knowing, that I'll act that way (in a "do or do not, there is no try" kinda way) makes the buzzing round wasp not even a thing worth wasting mental energy on. *nods* yep - that'll work. Thanks for this Carlos.
Any time friend !
May the living force we share and seek find us both in the seek ... right there !!!
