Our sights, sounds and tactile sensations of the world around us see to exist out there but they have no existence apart from our perceptual awareness of them.

We are living in a participatory universe, with no absolute subjects or objects.

...everything is empty of such an inherent self nature...

So,  investigate the nature of the substrate consciousness and what seems to be [illusory nature] of the world.

also take note of anomalies during the daytime...

Read this in an article once on Dream Yoga.

vertical line The cost depends on the designs, and some are less utilitarian than others, more talking sticks, with word messages. Just finished one with a Gangaji quote that runs as a spiral about the staff, the staff is bowed, so the utility of the piece would not be for walks, but does make a kind of fun spinning stick... ( I just scratched my  beard!).

As far as what's for sale, ones are from $50-75.. Working the staff is generally about  5 hours, with pyrography and carving. These are definitely visually dynamic, more than anything, art pieces.  I am starting on a loon design stick shortly, but have to find the right stick first, is going to take a lot of carving because I want some broader design fields. The snow is getting deep, so I find the staff material next to the road, on the next walk, on Friday, I'll start it, I'm guessing start to finish, ah... 6 hours, otherwise I'd drop the price, but this one is a gift. Thanks for the interest.

vertical line Dreaming seems to give the subconcious its say. To sometimes tell us what we are not paying attetion to. When the thinking is not drowing out our innermost fears...or problems.It brings to attention what is needed to be.
