Очередной иллюстрацией применения директив, касающихся жизненной цели, является описанный Эриксоном случай страдающей депрессией женщины, которая не могла забеременеть по причине ревматического заболевания. Хотя все врачи утверждали, что в ее ситуации беременность противопоказана, Эриксон посоветовал ей несмотря ни на что попытаться завести ребенка. Она так и сделала. В ходе беременности симптомы боле$ни суставов отступили, отступила также и депрессия. В положенный срок родилась девочка, которую Медицина , здоровье , заболевания , здоровый образ жизни симптомы , лечение болезней , кардиология , профилактика назвали Синди.

Blues4Kali- A Cult Classic for the End Times [27 Jan 2007|06:09pm]

[ mood | creative ]

What will Winter Solstice bring in

...an instant of Karma? ...an ethereal spiral dance of the collective soul? ... cosmic judgment leveled against civilization's expanse? ...destruction of the world as we know it? ...a chance for a new start? ...the rise and the revenge of the Goddess? or simply another day in the life of paranoia?
These are the false prophesies that your pastor warned you about!

Reality Exchange Program

"Makes DMT seem like a whip-it."

Crazy Bear said there'd be days like this. As usual, no one believed him. Now, all I want to know is: where IS that lifeboat, and how DO I ditch this ship of fools, without any of these bliss ninnies noticing that I'm already gone?

Captain, my ass. We are equal in this sea of madness.

That iceberg is looking awfully big.

New Age Metaphysical Books

Amana Mission is on a quest to save the world, and the only problem is, she can't remember why she got involved with such an obvious scam in the first place. Jesus saves. Christ. What a loser.

Kali kills first, and recycles later.

Hitchhikers, load up for a ride to the Other Side. You may wish you had gone Greyhound.

"What the...?"

*A cranky band of prankster peace warriors who absolutely cannot resist messing with each other's minds, no matter the cost.

*Cocky alchemy-dabbling quantum surfers, navigating the Ethersphere with hand-held computers, switching timelines to find a better party vibe and swap tips about the best temporary toilets for use as interdimensional portals.

*A burnt-out visionary hippie millionaire on a mission from Gaia to build a better "communitopia" by underwriting a convoy carrying telepathic priestesses.

*A wheelchair-bound mindpilot propelling a crystal-powered Seed Bank toward the post-Apocalyptic Garden, with psychic precision...and a predilection for high-velocity extreme driving.

*Hermaphrodite time-jumper fleeing a fate worse than death.

*Anarchist ghettoes where anything goes-except escape.

*Ancient Principals vying like sweatsoaked carpetbaggers for our loyalty as the Final Vote is tallied.

*Long-haired security patrols collecting a cannabis tribute tax from all pilgrims to the Valley of Fun.

*And an underground meat mafia bringing a black magic revival to a bloodless dreamworld gone bland.

All brought together by a secret psychedelic superdrug that tunes users in to reality through the eyes of another archetypal avatar inhabiting a different state of space and time. Mahayana made easy. Budding Buddha natures are running amuck on a virtual superhighway where all roads lead to the Bo tree and singularity.

Twenty-first century Tantra is about more than sex, drugs, and
rock and roll.Confronting the Karma of every wasted breath is only the first step.

Welcome to the End Times. Kali awaits. She already knows who you are.

Do you?

The 21st century counterculture is even weirder than it appears on the surface. This is not your mommy’s MTV Road Rules. Satire Parody and Humor.

Ride along on this mesmerizing, metaphor-packed bus trip toward ecstasy and enlightenment, as three real-time guides-Amana, Sissy, and Deva, let you in on what they learned when they asked what It was really all about, after all.

Become them for a multilevel metafictional tour of infinity and awaken yourself to the miracle-a-minute magic of mighty Mother Kali!

[ mood | okay ]


For my 11th grade english class, I had to do an "author project". This project consisted of choosing an author and reading five books by him/her through the year. We had to write a paper on each book. Now that the year is almost over, we have to write a final research paper on our author's works, about some sort of theme which unifies all the books we read.

I read: The Robber Brdiegroom, Delta Wedding, The Optimist's Daughter, The Ponder Heart, and Losing Battles.

So, I need help finding one theme that can be found in all five books.

If anyone can help me, I will be very happy. :)

Thanks for your time!

Sorry if this isn't the right place for this...

jealous is to romance as salt is to food [27 Apr 2005|06:23pm]
Jealousy in romance is like salt in food. A little can enhance the savor,
but too much can spoil the pleasure and, under certain circumstances, can
be life-threatening. -Maya Angelou, poet (1928- )

any thoughts/stories to share?

More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path
leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction.
Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly. -Woody Allen, author

Books about Wounds? [21 Feb 2005|02:00pm]

I know this is a rather odd request but maybe someone out there can suggest something... I am looking for books which feature prominent wounds. For examples of what I mean, I am thinking Fight Club at the moment (which has the chemical burn as a sort of initiation rite), or Kafka's Metamorphosis (where Gregor is wounded by the apple in his back). Play/poems/novels with any kind of wound would be good. Any random info/suggestions appreciated...

(x-posted, my apologies...)

Has anyone here read 'Brave New World' or 'White Noise' and actually remembers it in good detail?

This is being cross-posted, so I'm sorry if you see it more than once :\

Also, hi. I'm new. My name is Sarah, I'm 20, I go to University of Delaware, English Education major, blah blah blah :)

I have a question about Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Lenina is a Beta. She even says "I'm glad I'm not a Gamma" (right before part two begins).

Gammas wear green. Betas wear muberry. This is stated directly above when Lenina says she's glad she's not a Gamma. It says, and I quote, "the leaf-green Gamma girls...Mulberry-coloured Beta-Minuses came and went among the crowd."

So why is Lenina described, in GREAT detail, as wearing bottle green?

Has anyone seen this addressed, ever? Because I've been wondering for years (since the 11th grade when I first read the book), and I looked online and have seen NOTHING addressing it. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong spots.

Thank you to anyone who can help me :)
