Sugar Free Pear Crisp

Ok, Ok....the rave of 123poopitout on the recipe:

Pears, as most fruits are very sweet. So sugar is not needed. Much healthier, as sugar is linked to many diseases. Most crisps are so sweet you don't even taste the fruit, oats or butter....just a sweet, gross taste. Once you bake without sugar/sweeteners you really "see" the difference. Try to use organic and local ingredients...

1. cut enough pears into medium sized pieces to fill a loaf pan 2/3
2. sprinkle some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger or....
about 2 cups oats
1/2-3/4 cup butter [or oil, but butter is key!]
pinch of sea salt 
mix well together
put on pears, pressing gently with a fork to compact it
cook 350 for about 30 min. till pears are soft and top is browning
the most important part is to bring some over to me! :)

"Experience" This:

......this representation
of an actual experience!

beauty is there
you don't need to fly 2000km 
to experience "it"
 live directly: 

Not For Sale - Must Be Experienced

In our consumerist world
we expect
even demand
to full-fill us.

We chase
dreams of
"nice" houses
"nice" cars
"nice" clothes...

But do
"do it"
for us?   {more importantly: do they make us "nice"}

at what expense
to the poor
to nature
to our-selves?

We watch sports
but do not play them

We watch TV/computers/devices
but we don't part-i-cipate

We are spectators

"In societies where modern conditions of production prevail, all of life presents itself as an immense accumulation of spectacles. Everything that was directly lived has moved away into a representation."

The Aliens Have Landed!

Funny sounds
Rapid movements

They run
They fly
Huge bodies take off
Through the forest

The first one I ever saw
Came up to my window
Peering in
Soon to be shocked at what he saw

What did he see?

Hypnotized By Authority "Figures"

We need to own our own minds [and bodies/spirits/souls]....

"We begin life with the world presenting itself to us as it is. Someone - our parents, teachers, analysts [...religious/"spiritual" leaders, economists, politicians,...] - hypnotizes us to see the world and construe it in the right way. These others label the world, attach names and give voices to the beings and events in it, so that thereafter, we cannot read the world in any other language or hear it saying other things to us. 

The task is to break the hypnotic spell, so that we become undeaf, unblind and multilingual, thereby letting the world speak to us in new voices and write all its possible meanings in the new book of our existence. 

 Be careful in your choice of hypnotists" - Sidney Jourard
