“Awareness is my birthright,” say the deep, dark, frozen parts of the body each morning. They assert themselves, volunteering to feel themselves, no matter how tense or uncomfortable the feeling might be. Now they know they are in charge of their own awareness.

If they hold their breath or arch their back or otherwise contort themselves, it is not because an unwelcome blinding light is invading their territory. No, they do it to awaken themselves: first to feel, in whatever their body’s frozen configuration might be; then to breathe; then to move; then to be free.

The light does not press down unbidden. No, they call it down, pull it down, press upward into it. Now there is no fear—they know they are only feeling themselves.

“Awareness is my birthright.” Now they know, and they won’t be stopped. They will integrate with the rest, swiftly and easily.

A couple more series from Seanan McGuire:

  • While I bounced off the October Daye books the first time I tried them, I took another run at them in 2018 based on a Twitter thread comparing them to the Kate Daniels books, and while the first half of the first book still struggled to hold my attention, this time I pushed through it, thoroughly enjoyed the second half, and then promptly devoured all of the other currently published books in the series.
  • I'm currently reading and enjoying the Rose Marshall books (set in the Incryptid universe, but focusing on ghosts rather than cryptids and the Price family)

Something I miss from some mid-90's HTTP servers is autolink functionality: when selecting text as an anchor for a hyperlink, a query would be run on what would now be called a CMS, suggesting possible targets. Not only was this convenient for the author, but also for the reader, as it encouraged more informative anchor text than the frequent-at-the-time "this" or "here".

(yes, link rel= navigation was also automatically supported, as were Imagemaps.)

Lambek's "From word to sentence" notes (pp.79-80) the difficulty of shoehorning languages which use parallel constructions (resp. the mathematician's respectively) to place objects and modifiers, not in a nested order, but in parallel sequence (resp. not order-inverting).

The 80's cartoon "Mother for a little mammoth" (~8 min) is deeper than it first appears: not only were the ancestors of Mammuthus primigenius to be found in eastern Africa (Mammuthus subplanifrons), but there's a very similar relation (both geographic and familial) between Australopithecus afarensis and Homo sapiens.

Most of the HR professionals are uninitiated to the deep psychological understanding of the consequences of diversity principals and social responsibility. The significance of diversity and inclusion (D&I) appears hollow. It is never a part of their education and even while growing-up professionally. It leaves a lacuna which they find it hard to jump when suddenly one fine day they are in the top C-suite seat of chief of human resources.

The HR leaders nowadays want to employ from a talent pool that is not restricted to the confines of the office building. The HR workforce aspires for an HR industry which consists of a talent pool from international boundaries and is ready to share their talent with the external organizations. This gives employees a better exposure and the HR workforce access to a whole new and fresh source of skill sets and talent.

A workforce is the backbone of any organization. It takes a lot of money and effort for organizations to hire a decent workforce which makes the employees liable to them in various aspects. However, if we see it from another angle, it is possible to consider employees as assets that can be invested in and governed to increase a company’s business value.

A few weeks ago, I had a great example of an interest that consumed my attention for a day but didn't last beyond that.

My wife and I went to the ballet.

I've always had this happen with ballet: I get obsessed with it briefly and then my interest fades. Back when I was 8 or 9 I attended my younger sister's ballet performance and wanted to become a dancer. It never went anywhere. A couple of times as an undergraduate, I went to the ballet. Always loved it at the time but nothing ever came of it.

So anyway, we went the ballet a few weeks ago. When I came home I spent hours reading up on terminology, watching videos of great dancers doing particular moves. I was obsessed. For just that day.

I woke up the next day and went back to Greek and linguistics. Maybe Carl Djerassi would call that the equivalent of meeting up with the same person every few years for just one night.

  • Landscape In Sunlight and Seaview House, both by Elizabeth Fair. As previously reported, I found the first of her novels to be “Decent enough light reading”, and felt the same about Landscape In Sunlight. On the other hand, Seaview House was heavily concerned with “will X marry Y or Z”, which I found tedious.
  • The Best Of All Possible Worlds and The Galaxy Game, both by Karen Lord; the former a re-read in preparation for reading the latter, which is its sequel. I find the first of these is a much smoother read than the second, which is clogged up with lots of infodumping and not-clearly-separated points of view.
  • Half A King by Joe Abercrombie, which I downloaded a sample of after recommendation from fred_mouse. Couldn't get into it, though, so decided against buying the full book.
  • Letters To A Young Muslim by Omar Saif Ghobash. A bit repetitive, and some of it felt very naive to me, but overall an interesting read.
  • The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. A re-read, and along with it I read the tor.com re-read posts. I’ve read this several times before, but this was my first time reading it after having watched the recent TV adaptation, and it reinforced my opinion that the adaptation was a really good one.

Cowboys and Insects has a bright, colourful post-war American style that reminds me of Geoff Darrow and David Aja.

The story features an alternative history where giant mutated insects fuel the post-war American economy and provide a metaphor for Jim Crow discrimination.

As ever violence underpins the American dream and the central character has too choose whether they will conform to expectations and enjoy the benefits of majority rule.

It's quite a dark story but lighter than the source material it's riffing off.

The Evolution of Human Resources through its Leaders

If we talk about the past, HR professionals did not have much to do with the everyday operations of the organization. They played more of an administrative part in the company and offered advice relating to areas such as accounting or perhaps advertising.http://www.josephao.com/2653/the-evolution-of-human-resources-through-its-leaders/

You should keep in mind that the simplicity or complexity of a task management software doesn’t decide whether it’s a good fit for your business. Identify the goals i.e decide what you want your task management software to do for your business. So decide, do you need just a task app for your phone? Do you need a task list online? Or do you need a larger project management software that lets you manage your tasks with your team?

HR leaders are the backbone of any organization. They are the trailblazers who carry all the tasks of the company and march forward with the standalone spirit. They are responsible for making the business productive by not just hiring the best talent but also nurturing the talent so that they are able to contribute their best in the organization.

“Awareness is my birthright,” say the deep, dark, frozen parts of the body each morning. They assert themselves, volunteering to feel themselves, no matter how tense or uncomfortable the feeling might be. Now they know they are in charge of their own awareness.

If they hold their breath or arch their back or otherwise contort themselves, it is not because an unwelcome blinding light is invading their territory. No, they do it to awaken themselves: first to feel, in whatever their body’s frozen configuration might be; then to breathe; then to move; then to be free.

The light does not press down unbidden. No, they call it down, pull it down, press upward into it. Now there is no fear—they know they are only feeling themselves.

“Awareness is my birthright.” Now they know, and they won’t be stopped. They will integrate with the rest, swiftly and easily.

This morning I realized it’s even simpler than I last described. The descending energy is simply the gradual emergence of self-awareness in the body. It’s not so much that the descending force carries with it an “instruction” for feeling some specific feeling. No, the only thing a part (or stratum or column) of the body is asked to feel is itself.

This recognition is engendering greater trust. The assignment of responsibility to an outside force is suddenly waning (and I wonder how specifically my language will correspondingly change). There’s more trust, because as far as each part is concerned, “it’s just me.” It’s not an external pressure saying “wake up!”; it’s just that part waking up, a.k.a. feeling itself, a.k.a. feeling.

More trust makes for less noise. Noise arises in the perception of a battle: attack/retreat, emerge/withdraw. Noise reflects the lack of precision in these movements. The part is always overcompensating, pressing outward too far, retreating inward too far...until it realizes it is only fighting with itself, like a dog chasing its tail. A new calm, clarity, and precision becomes possible, and the gradual spread of wakefulness in the body accelerates (exponentially?).

When “I” feel something in my body, that’s not the most accurate way to describe it. Rather, that part of the body feels something. That part feels itself. That part feels. So when I become aware of a feeling in my body, it is more accurate to say that the part is becoming self-aware.

For example, if I ate too much chocolate yesterday, or stayed up way too late on the computer watching YouTube (hypothetically speaking, of course), this has physical consequences. The resulting feelings are not entirely pleasant, and if each part is accustomed to numbing out or “sleeping through” these feelings, I don’t (or it doesn’t) actually feel them. The descending force is not asking my body to feel some foreign feeling. Like I said, it’s just the gradual emergence of self-awareness in the body. So if the top of my head allows the light of self-awareness to shine and touch adjacent parts, then eventually my stomach may start to wake up. If my stomach relaxes and allows itself to feel itself, this enables the continued movement of awareness through the body.

At this point it is not simply a top-down movement; no, it shifts and turns and finds its way, like a river making it to the sea. As long as the recognition that this is simply the emergence of self-awareness remains, the river will find its way closer to the sea.

Relationship is the flow of awareness within one body.

I can’t help but think macrocosmically about this too, thanks to recently watching Andrew Yang talk about Universal Basic Income. If the country is a body, perhaps the UBI is like much-needed oxygen delivered to the remotest and most forgotten parts of the body. Perhaps it can help the full range of the body wake up.

I do think the insight about time still stands. Without karma (undigested energy), it would take no time at all to be here now.

This morning it was clearer than ever to me how the descending energy, the force that presses down on the top of my head like clockwork at the beginning of a new day—how this energy already carries within it an associated feeling for each part of the body. It is only a question of whether each part is willing to feel it. If each part was willing, then the incarnation would be instantaneous. If it were not for any resistance, time would be unnecessary. I believe this is a microcosm of the principle I've heard Thomas Hübl express before: the less essential I am, the more I need time to resolve the energy.

In any case, I intuit that my resistance is the only thing preventing me from instantaneously embodying the feeling that is implied/suggested/directed/requested by the descending force. The 30-minute-or-so process I engage in before getting out of bed is useful only because I am not yet fully willing. I get a measure of progress, of embodiment, resolution, and peace, thanks to the time I allow myself to spend trying to transcend time...at least a little bit.

The practical effect is that, by embodying the energy as fully as I can, even if it's only partial, I get up feeling more rested and energized, less taxed by the carryover from the previous day's meals and experiences. Both are more fully digested, as the sounds of my stomach during this time also suggest.

The survival responses, freeze and fight, are becoming increasingly accessible and near the surface. A little bit of light from above, and there is the arching back, the held breath. It is centering and growing and awakening especially between my shoulder blades or indeed around my heart. It is moving now, I can identify with the protection, it can flow. This way, it asserts more prominence but less dominance. It no longer begins and ends with a headache and a burning face, a sense of being stuck. No, the movement leads to more movement and a deepening, broadening, colorful world of sensation. This is a welcome progress beyond the dead-end feeling.

On the other hand, now there is a no-end feeling or at least thought. That I might be lost in this new world and that it might even be dangerous became clear yesterday morning when indulging the searching light through the tortuous paths of my spine and back muscles, and enjoying the exquisite, delicious feeling of restored connection, like a pleasant tickle or an itch receiving an unfailingly satisfying continuous scratch. Yet my heart kept retreating, withdrawing into a smaller center, evading the pursuit of this light as if it were a knife trying to pierce it. That’s when I heard the sound. At first I thought it was a rushing wind outside my window, but then I realized it was my physical heart wheezing, the loudest murmur I had ever heard, clearly perceived under the present conditions (arched back, cocked head, silent room).

So... this morning I’m placing a premium on peace over tumult, even if it’s less interesting. The fact is, I need guidance, help from above. It also seems key not to let my mind wander, which introduces an element of randomness and chaos, perhaps even a “foothold for the devil.” As a prayer and affirmation of protection and guidance, I am occupying my mind with the Jesus prayer and with singing from Psalm 32:

I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.

Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you.

Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him.

May the awakening of this heart be on Wisdom’s schedule, not my own.

Some wonderful embodied insights from my first trauma touch therapy session today:

The freeze behavior itself is a movement. It is not not moving. In this state, I externally/consciously feel relaxed and am very still. This is probably why recently my dental hygienist kept checking on me to make sure I was okay. I must have looked like a deer in the headlights, even though I was just thinking “I’m relaxed; I’ll move if I want to move.”

But the natural state is to move. To be truly relaxed is not to be entirely still. If I want to move beyond the frozen state, I don’t need to force any movement. I had assumed that to counteract this behavior, I would need to move. On the contrary, I just need to let the freeze behavior do its thing (which is actually to move!). It just needs more space.

The freeze behavior itself is a movement, albeit constrained to a very small space. During the session, when I validated it and followed it while it did its thing, it began to flow more. It is a lot of locked-up energy (constrained movement).

Today, in this state, I went from feeling shrink-wrapped to feeling like I was inside a tiny coffin. Progress!

It’s a good thing too; I have another dentist appointment tomorrow!

A couple more series from Seanan McGuire:

  • While I bounced off the October Daye books the first time I tried them, I took another run at them in 2018 based on a Twitter thread comparing them to the Kate Daniels books, and while the first half of the first book still struggled to hold my attention, this time I pushed through it, thoroughly enjoyed the second half, and then promptly devoured all of the other currently published books in the series.
  • I'm currently reading and enjoying the Rose Marshall books (set in the Incryptid universe, but focusing on ghosts rather than cryptids and the Price family)

Infusions of power/energy/light from above are becoming a multiple-times-per-night occurrence. They have an ordering, calming, healing, enlivening effect, and I’m very grateful. The song going through my head this morning is “Humble King,” especially the line that says “Show me how much you love humility.”

My wife has been wearing earplugs. She has been sleeping better; I can tell I have been disturbing her less. Now there is much more space for deep breathing and soft vocal sighs or tones.

The new insight/guideline this morning is that I can center my attention in my heart when I feel the pressure/resistance in my head. Thus my orientation shifts from the crown pressing downward to the heart pressing outward. Heart accessibility thus becomes the starting point rather than the goal. In order to increase that access I need not press further downward (which is counterproductive anyway because it creates more resistance). Instead, since the radiating energy of my heart is now the starting point, I can retreat into that center in order to relieve the pressure. My heart is then free to explore the contours of its own resistance from within, rather than shirk from the foreboding pressure of an outside piercing light that is persistently knocking at the door and asking to be let inside.
