You know how it happens, one event leads to another, there is a small change in one’s typical patterns leads to a sudden flurry of interaction, and from that, because now “the time is ripe”, an old homeostasis is tipped into a new flow, and some new thing fires up like a launched missle.
(In this case, something happened that lead me to start watching my facebook news feed, something I usually avoid, because I don’t want that particular collective to overly influence the other things I write in various facebook groups – block out the feedback, and I write and conduct experiments without that thought “what if so-and-so sees this…” arising to contaminate my mental workspace. Whatever, right – I scanned my news feed one day, and a post about a new text for Transpersonal Psychology led me to start to write.)
One of my alternate self structures is a web developer and internet marketing consultant. I had been working all day on this and that, wordpress and databases and content writing and blah blah. That personality was charged up, grabbed my hands, and typed something elaborate that condensed down to “dammit let me fix that fucking website, it’s been driving me crazy for years”.
The magic words… And soon the keys were in my webdev geek memory, and I could play.,
