Philosophy Links

Below are links to sites that have relevance to bluecray vision. They include links to psychology, practical lifestyle, advocacy and metaphysical sites that carry some implications for bluecray philosphy.

sualocin_asad_rainy_ones_baba_oct_28_2009The author of bluecray is neither a psychologist nor a philosopher, however, the concepts of understanding, wisdom and love are inherent in bluecray vision, and so, the following links have been included under the general heading of Philosophy Links.

  • The I Ching – as translated by Richard Wilhelm – search around for this translation, with a forward by Carl Jung. It was the first book of changes that I studied, back in the seventies. For those who are not understanding of the diversity of Chinese culture and language, particularly from a historical perspective, this book is perhaps the best I Ching ( Yi Jing) to start with. However, there are many other versions written, that are perhaps a more clear interpretation… look around, find one that suits. I found the I Ching a great way to understand human nature, albeit with a Chinese historical cultural perspective.
  • Woman and Child First – Psychology, Philosophy and much much more
  • PESA : Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia :  their purpose – “advance educational research, policy, and practice” and Educational Philosophy and Theory – Journal. Also, check out their Resources page for their conferences and papers
  • If you like  modern stories that carry with them a feast of reality mixed with the spices of insight and healing, then Stuart Wilde‘s  smorgasboard of  colorful visionary stories  may entertain and enlighten you. Some of his stories may just give you that little extra push that you need to open your eyes, accept yourself, let your anxst of modern living go and move towards a more loving future.

Motorcycles, Music and Wisdom in the Land

I dreamt of a billabong, still water clear
a tiny brown platypus sitting so near
hidden by reeds and tall growing sedge
I watched him dive freely away from his ledge.
As he entered the waters all bubbles and glee
I became that dear platypus and he became me
Then waking quite quickly, a smile in my mind
I “knew” what it meant to be one of his kind
A blessing a story a picture a song
this vision stays with me
tho’ the dream is long gone.

Why are the following links in PHILOSOPHY?  because motorcycling has been a way of life me for over 33 years ,  and without laughter, “heart” and magic, philosophy could be rather dull….

and more on W.D. Gann :-  Gann’s reading list for his students, quite a number of philosophical, astrological and numerological texts. Don’t be too put off by Gann having been a dedicated market trader and enthusiastic capitalist – there is still plenty to learn from his market analysis, astrological ideas and numerological concepts.
