You were once wild here, don’t let them tame you.


wildA dear old friend who passed away many years ago used to point out oxymoron’s and cultured misconceptions. I loved how he was always deconstructing perceptions and turning my world upside down and out of focus.  I miss him and the aroma of the lingering tobacco from his pipe.  The Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland reminds me of him:  What ever you think it is, it would not be, and what it would not be it is you see.

If you have forgotten what wild is, then what is it to be tamed?  We, everyone, have been tamed for generations, and the cultured structures, forms, and their functions are the very blind spots that maintains the unsustainable economic productivity for growth. To presume you are not tamed maintains and ensures this current paradigm as the sensory shadow feedback is managed and avoided.

Many talk about freedom, but freedom eradicates all of life as you have known it, and you can never go back. The freedom movement is counter culture to such an extent that survival is impossible if it was not for death of duality itself!

To begin to live is to admit you have been tamed and  that you have substituted your freedom for ideals of comfort and safety, and in the process you have abdicated the natural movements within you as you are.

Are you open and receptive to witness the sensory feedback and the ever changing landscape of nuances and colors; to be open and receptive to see ‘what is’ and notice the play of preferences you have and ask why it is so.  Life is possible because of the intricacies of connectivity and as you rest your perceptions  that which you are will gradually become visible and rewilding happens all by itself.
