What the hell is the fow? it is the fuk-ing now in flanguage.
Flanguage requires placing an F in front of words and giggling to oneself (which actually is the point) We love Flaffing more than any other possible activity. I am the we in this case– however I believe we fumans have this in common- hopefully. After all what is more inviting than a baby’s giggle?
Important to add here- is the FOW gives us instant access to the present… and it is agreed upon that in the present is where we are!
Nature offers a great menu of beautiful experiences that instantly bring you to the WOW of the FOW – a beautiful cloud, tree, flying birds etc just bring you a delightful and immediate connection.
This question is so simple- and so to the point… .
Am i my liver? No…. I have a liver- and my body uses it… Am I my right hand?.. no.. actually it doesn’t just wave around when “IT ” feels like doing so.
I am defnitely not a scientist…As matter of fact, I like to bring this up- when I was a young girl the science said that there were 9 planets… in the universe… and that experience has colored my opinion of science and “rightness”. I have had so many experiences in my quest for knowledge and meaning- can they be less true? because you haven’t had the same? not in my life anymore…I am abeliever..or an experiencer and I trust ME. took quite a while and requires constant reinforcement…. but quite worth the effort.
Keeping my mind free from negativity isn’t that simple however…. but going with that negativity isn’t very appealing anymore..ANGER_ BLAMING_RESENTMENT… what am I leaving out?.
Actually, it takes vigilance and as we like to call it… MINDFULNESS.-
Whatever one wants to call it… it is worth the effort… to feel positive- It is a state that I have named THE THRIVE!! love it right? Mindfulness catches me – of course i go dark… not fun tho and it is my time… I want to enjoy it.
. I am Always so impressed with my APPs abilities to upgrade…. we Humans could really benefit here by just APPing up.. When we get NInfo- ( new information) it is our duty and assignment to digest it – put it right into the system and see what comes out!! It is impossible to be the same as we were before the download… right? of course! My WAZE or FB or Offerup or anything- just reboots- better than evaH… no resistance, no holding on to its history!!!
To me that is just so exciting- and encouraging! NInfo equals new- Info – and that totally demands our presence in the moment so we can take advantage of both the moment and the Info which really blend into one another ….and puffs out comes an upgraded Human mind…remarkable in its Newness.- and this is the benefit of staying in the moment…. the ability to create ones self! What in the Universe could be more FUNderful than this
Young and Old are inevitable– Newness is the way to stay vibrant and relevant while we are in our BEhicles-( bodies)- and as I am looking in the mirror I am OLDish, in the not Youngish conversation… and that is Fmazing- because I still feel so startled -when I see myself in the mirror- I know we all feel like that- because what is inside isn’t really aging- it is being…vibrantly.as the outside starts to die– I suppose I will experience a whole new paradigm- as every living …..does. I believe it is our culture that has it wrong…asking us what we want to do???? not how we want to be? Being creates the moment and the moment is our life.
it is inevitable that our Vehicles will age- birth to the end- we grow and change and actually are very new all of the time. 1 moment and go until it gets to its end… old- but can you imagine being the same forever????- baby to Elder – we get the full ride as a human- we change every day and yet we cling to our past thoughts- and they rob the present of possibilities. Every day I run into my old patterns of thinking- we all do ( betcha) ..I call them old Operating systems – that I invented when they seemed appropriate- ie, the first time I felt LOST- I was probably very young and lost- it was scary I am sure… the VILarious side is that I can feel that panic even now- with keys to my car in my hand- with the ability to call for help and a credit card– I still go from zero to freak, skipping all other levels of alarm!- Personally, it is then that I bring myself back to the moment-( i have learned to do that in a kind and friendly, humorous way- ) A very, very, very IMPORTANT step in AMing. – and we all know by now AMing is creating oneself… in the space that one is- – or commonly called NOW.
Presence may not be so easy to accomplish- that is for suah! However to continue in a reactive state, invariably swinging around with the wind- is much harder…
APP up- this is the time for us! WOWing! which by the way or BTW is now FOWing !
Pretty simply either I am in a good state or wishing I wasn’t around… My tolerance for feeling crappy and confused is very low as I seem to go to fright very quickly- Panic is not fun.. not many light hearted laughs available.
My purpose in life is to INJoy it… I have named the state the GTBA which stands for Glad to be alive! a wonderful rush of energy but not always available to this human (me) so My feelings are my cue and my clue.. when I am revolving there is generally a circular way of thinking that just repeats and repeats…it is not fun in the least – giving off “what ” if “concerns and catastrophic thinking.. the worst possible outcomes that thankfully haven’t manifested even tho I seem to insist living in their possibilities.
I medicate with Cannabis…. I have been puffing and chewing for almost 4 years now. I see a difference …. I declare –POT is a HEART and MIND OPENING experience…
Marijuana , micro dosed can expand and open … one’s heart and mind…. it does mine.————-
I smoked it a few times while I was in my 20’s.. the paranoia was unbearable- so was my own regular thinking…..as I remember… i recall sitting in a group and really not knowing if I was talking or just thinking that i was talking…. very uncomfortable… and that sort of encompasses me in the then. circa 1960’s.- always looking outward- getting my life from your opinion…. hey …. that is how I thought it worked. It – being the world as I understood it…if you like me… then I was likable… if you didn’t- well then it was probably something I did… (everything was outside of myself) EXHAUSTING paradigm to inhabit.
Thriving doesn’t have room for that feeling- thriving is energetically living- i believe it is the natural state of life…and its direction is positive.. and best of all THRIVING feels good. Thriving is filled with JOY.. one cant purchase this feeling for any extended time… can one?
I don’t feel that I get this because of cannabis- I believe that weed accentuates what is there… I do a lot of work every day to put positivity into my mind… I listen to WISDOM.. for me it takes much effort- but the effort is so worth it.. because I have a low tolerance for misery..
Prescription pills mask a lot- but left me as empty as before when they wear off…OPEN MINDED? OPEN HEARTED!? an essential for the thrive/fow I crave.

who knows anything about this Corona? This is a real present moment situation that demands PRESENCE in the response – hopefully with a clear head. A head that is not influenced by personal need and fear.
I for one, am having a difficult time keeping it in the perspective it deserves.
Good wishes for all of us HUMANS and other species on this planet,,, what is the lesson?
a good example , and let his behavior be our teacher – if we have our wits about us we might not have to act- out anymore.
One has to have their WITS about them… right? now I know what that means… without ones wits… we just blurt out our most defensive words looking to protect who we think we are…( me- mine – i think- it is…..) and so on into the ether…of our existence…getting more defensive and identified more and more with (me-mine- ours- etc.
I believe that in every human (fuman) resides a desire to be content- a desire to INjoy their life- LOVE< KINDNESS< GENEROSITY< PLAYFULNESS -open heartedness if you will- i believe that is how we arrive in this body on this planet… and then… culture or society influences us and we become caught up in the identity of who we think you think we are…. at least i experienced something like that… and what I have noticed lately- is the DOING/ BEING conundrum…. more later as that could be a short book!
REACTION needs RETHINKING or we are assigned to our old selves and not able to create who we are in the moment… and then we are New and not OLD.. no matter our age..life is more fun when we can create our selves … I am infinitely entertained by finding out who I am …I have never been this before… so fun.
RESPONSE is the way to go…. a very good distinction from reaction…. responding requires being here
I am an admirer of yours… I admire your bravery and your dedication….. but come on here… you don’t own fear of guns and insanity. We all do.. we all live it…it is a new paradigm for ALL.. not just high school students..
No one has been alive in times like these before… it is NEW for all.. no matter which part of the life ark we are on… do you really think people get stuck in their teen years for the rest of their time in their bodies? Look up evolve in the dictionary… although, there is hardly time anymore… we must ingest new attitudes as NINfo- (new info) happens. Just like the apps that upgrade,,, so must attitude upgrade and adjust in order to stay relevant.. equaling consciousness.
I don’t believe the difference is young and old… I believe it is NEW and OLD.. the brightest minds can use other’s experiences to learn, and we do not have to endure each awful experience to get it…learn a little humility early and life will be easier for you..GOD BLESS us ALL.. and Nancy Pelosi too!
