Look at your nose
Your nose is a nose of poetry, and if you read further, you can see how. Allow me to make it memorable: First look at your nose for a little. Close one eye and you may see a blurred profile. Go on and divide (mentally) the profile you may see, into our main spans, here called F, O, I, and R.
Tick tack Tao scheming further divide each span of the Tao ascent into five lays, and I typically make do with presenting only from the F and O spans. F starts with 1 within your nostril and ends with 5 in the open, under your nose. O starts with 6 (at the nose-tip) and ends with 10 further up along the nose-ridge. I starts with 11 and ends with 15, and R begins with 16 and ends with 20. That is the whole ascent route involved.
F. The F part (steps 1-5) is filled with family learning, assimilating things, and being instructed. More details: [More]
O. The O part of living reaches the middle of the nose ridge (Koan-like assessment). To attain to the O section is to gain some Tao (way, means, handling routines that pay off). It involves accomplishing deals, dealings, handling things by routines (ways, modes, accomplishments) or rather on-going drill. and one goal in this is to keep calm. The O part deals with labour and appropriate ways at times. After you have arrived at some Tao or large enough Tao outlets, you can try to be culinary and artistic without offending the boss.
I. About the middle of the nose ridge is where the next main stretch sets in - the I part of the ascent route. The nose ridge in this profile picture corresponds with the Tao line between outer (yin) and inner (yang). This span (11-15) suits management and organisers. Also, many bosses get bitter for lack of understanding how things work.
R. The R part starts about where you knit the eyebrows. I rarely tell from this stage for self-helpers.
The fairy tale route to success your nose shows. It is pretty much in step with the structuralism of Algirdas Greimas. [cf. Moof, Sts]
Figurative expressions need to be deciphered to be put to good use. If so, "There's nothing as useful as a good theory," said Kurt Levin. [Sop 11]
Quite like poetry
The poet describes what is possible as though it were both likely and necessary. (Aristotle).
Good poetry may enrich your mind. Poetry is an ancient mode of expression. Part of its effect stems from your conjuring up pictures or images from within through it.
Homer's two classics, for example, are in the form of poems. In his Poetics, Aristotle compares poetry to history, and states that poetry is more philosophic than history and thus of greater intrinsic worth.
Poetry conquers or hovers by its reliance upon the line as a formal unit, by its heightened vocabulary, and by freedom of syntax. It can encompass many a mode: narrative, concise and pithy (aphoristic) dramatic with a satiric flair or not, very descriptive, tersely didactic, offhand erotic, and suggestive and personal. There are many others.
Neat and handy people sift what looks interesting or significant so as to make meaning out of more as they go on.
Culinary and skilled use of language allows for poetry too. Poetry has many means to its disposal.
Of Tao poems
A tick tack tao essay is rooted in gentle, rewarding Taoism - where yin and yang meet there is a so-called contact line called Tao (way). It is considered a way of outlets.
The tick tack tao program borders on poetry if it is not, and may further be turned into didactic poetry and poetry of other kinds by metres that go along with it. That poetry may irritate some, should not be the fault of poetry.
Tick tack tao essay-tables allow us to form both gist-poems that instruct and others that entertain in various ways. Tick tack tao poetry could counteract regressions too.
There is often help in being able to describe or suggest what could be going on and is about to happen.
Tick tack tao essays are designed for "anyone", for no one in particular.
Through sound deals, sound help could be had.
While you apply a novel teaching, bear in mind the responsibilities as a mountain climber - he or she is on some ascent route too: One step at a time, "safety first", no reckless moves in an upwards slope. One is to master the steps, make a cogent route, try and stay adequate or polite, and live on.
A frisk, polite, and candid-looking style can help upbringing a lot.
There is much to learn from artists about presentation.
A tick tack tao essay is a more or less terse serialisation scenario. Possible gains had from it, are had are by way of accession for most part. It suggests you build on top of former accomplishments, one step (lay) at a time - something like that.
And if things do not work your way, no matter how hard and well you try, your conditions may have to be altered. A kiss may do the trick when you are young.
The tick tack tao scheme allows for putting output of poets and others to good use too. Impossible? Not so. Take a good look: [Link]
Loose enough training programs in dealing with life on top of poet lives and outputs are now facts. What is more, you can learn to philosophise on top of poets, writers, philosophers and others through tick tack tao, and get accomplished in solid-looking marketing by it.
Strands let themselves be braided and knit and criss-crossed according to the design and its concomitant presentation metres, all thanks to the built-in connections of the groundwork.
There is a good reason for designing huge date reserves that appear like simple primers, but teem with acrostic measures. But bear in mind that what is divulged about the presentational tick tack tao system till now, is just a part of it, and not the whole cymbernetic system.
The number one aim is to master some area. That is no small accomplishment, in case. You have to think well to cope, all in all, unless others help you. Schooling is also for that. Tick tack tao scenarios help us to arrive at fresh metaphors quite often.
What has hitherto been quite fragmented and compartementalised assertions and knowledge bits allow themseves to be grouped according to the structuralist design that is embedded in the tick tack tao route of accomplishments: mental or outer - or both, preferably.
The generalised matrix-founded design, simple and cogent as it is, allows sound, cognitive schemata to be built rather easily against being outsmarted too.
Most of these claims can be studied and perhaps tested. Above it, do not believe anything but maintain calm reserve and integrity as you seek to find out of things, if you so will.
There is a good reason to find out just what could be meant when we say this and that is okay, or good to look at. These things matter to clarify a long way, minding that some modern values are on the glide, and many values are vastly relative.
The Epicurean stand of making delight last the life through, is probably all right a long way. [Lof]
A thing is to be looked on as "good" if it puts decency or dignity in the first place, allows fair play, humour instead of combats and wars out of greed or drives to debase and degrade others.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (etc).
There you are. It is a simple as that. The quality of the poem is another matter. It depends on such as your skill in putting parts together. Maybe you find it fit to fuse a few points from the same "bead" too. If so, try it out. You are quite free. Have some fun!
The tick tack Tao table-essay serves to form teaching poems too, as far as we like. From the essay on a previous page we get, for example:
You may add rhymes and metres as you like. In blank verse - this is - it is not asked for or needed. Read more about the art of making such poetry: [Slekas]
