The first rule of this game is that it is not a game.

Everyone must play.

You must love us.

You must go on living.

Be yourself, but play a consistent and acceptable role.

Control yourself and be natural.

Try to be sincere.

-Excerpt from The Book by Alan Watts, pg 73

Big up Sati for the quote.

“It must be understood that to cultured men… there is nothing unnatural in developing a certain personal style, with even a touch of swagger, provided one does it with humour.” – Alan Watts (Zen Buddhist and spiritual entertainer)

Needles in the West come with tubes.  That’s so us inept acupunks don’t have to drive a needle freehand.  …and there’s some BS that the medical industry tries to force down our throats about keeping the body of the needle clean.  If only they knew the freehand techniques of China…

But it’s all about the tap.  The moment just before I tap the needle into my patient with my forefinger is the most important time.  Silence.  Concentration.  Ging.

I think most of us just go to work and feel quite alone. I leave my bubble of a home, get in my bubble of a car and get to my bubble of the office.  I sit in my bubble of a cubicle and stare into the (seemingly) vast bubble of the internet.

Zoom out.  I try and do what Chinese medicine does and zoom out to try and look at the bigger picture.  In my mind’s eye, I pretend to zoom out of my body and take a look at all the people I interact with.  I picture where my money goes and how it comes back to me.  I picture how my Service goes around and how it comes back to me.

I don’t feel so alone.
