word world

"The syntactical nature of reality, the real secret of magic, is that the world is made up of words.  And, if you know the words that the world is made of, you can make of it whatever you wish."
                   - Terence McKenna

what do you wish to make of it?  what ARE you making of it?

let us examine this example taken from a (sweet, yummy, amazing) friend's Facebook status update:
"disheartened by the nasty non-recyclable aseptic nut milk containers and the volume i was consuming in my daily Dope Ass Smoothie routine, i've taken to making my own."

(and, thank you, dear, sweet friend, for loving your planet and yourself enough to model this inspired action) does it feel when we word it like this:
"inspired and excited to lighten the load on my/our beautiful planet, i've taken to making my own nut milk - no containers to (not) recycle, no preservatives around which to pray. yay!"

...ahhhhh, infinitely more uplifting, yes?

again, i ask you: what are you making of it?

love, love, love from Taos...dani
