The Inner Game of Thinking

"There is always an inner game being played in your mind no matter what outer game you are playing. How aware you are of this game can make the difference between success and failure in the outer game."
---Tim Gallwey

The concept of the Inner Game was developed in the 70's by Timothy Gallwey as a way of helping people to improve their performance in various sports, e.g. tennis, golf and skiing, and also in music.

Among other things, Gallwey recommends:

* developping the art of relaxed concentration
* not trying too hard  More >

A kiss is just a kiss

A kiss doesn't mean a promise
A kiss doesn't mean a lie

Lesson 2 – The Major Arcana from The Fool (0) to The Wheel of Fortune (10)

In lesson one we covered the list of the Major Arcana that describes the element, planet and astrological sign associated with each card.

Major Arcana cards that carry an astrological sign can be used as a guide for timing in a reading, (we’ll cover this later in the lessons about spreads), so it’s very useful to familiarize yourself with these cards.  More >

 Aleatoric and Political Surrealism in the Age of the Internet0 comments
picture9 May 2003 @ 20:29
aleatory and aleatoric - Composition depending upon chance, random accident, or highly improvisational execution, typically hoping to attain freedom from the past, from academic formulas, and the limitations placed on imagination by the conscious mind (...)
Aleatory was also employed by numerous twentieth century avant-garde artists. Followers of the Dada and Surrealism produced numerous examples. Jean Arp (French, 1887-1966) made collages by dropping small pieces of paper onto a larger piece, then adhering them where they landed. André Masson (French, 1896-1987) and Joan Miró (Spanish, 1893-1983) allowed their pens to wander over sheets of paper in the belief that they would discover in those doodles the ghosts of their repressed imaginations. Similarly, Tristan Tzara (Rumanian, 1896-1963) created poetry by selecting sentences from newspapers entirely by chance.

 Un Amour de Swan0 comments
picture9 May 2003 @ 20:19
Katelyn Mariah aka Swan is best known around NCN for her online journal, Swan's Song and Hummingbird's Heart and for her Avalon Gallery of Visionary Art. And with names such as "swan" and "hummingbird" and the ever present bird related imagery of many of her paintings it should have come as no surprise to The Muse that her interest in birds would be something that Katelyn would also actively pursue in her daily life outside of cyberspace. But no swans or hummingbirds here, no casual birding either, as it turns out---Surprise! Surprise!---Katelyn has been working as a volunteer at a rehab center for birds of prey for about seven years now.  More >
