roadside fun

If we observe the reactions of the people, it gives us a clue about how our mind expects things to be in a certain way. It shows how this merely mechanical mental machinery comes to a halt, when it comes across the unexpected! 😛

To be aware is to breathe life into the machinery.

This was composed just for fun, using some computer software, using short clips that can be assembled together, much like building blocks. Other examples of software to create music on a PC are FLStudio or lmms.

There are also many natural repellents that you can place around your home to prevent ants from coming in. If ants are coming in the cracks of doors and windows, put a cinnamon stick, coffee grinds, chili pepper, paprika, cloves, or dried peppermint leaves near the openings. You can also squeeze the juice of a lemon at the entry spot and leave the peel there. Planting mint around the foundation of the house will also keep ants away.

It has to wriggle through rocks and narrow spaces and put in considerable effort to get rid of the old skin. Its quite uncomfortable – a biological process called molting.

If the snake’s skin is a metaphor for the habit patterns of our mind, a human being may hardly ever molt. Read the rest of this entry »
