Beginning; the Inchoative Mood

A session of Ortho-Bionomy is the beginning of a process that continues to unfurl. It can be said to unfurl in phases. 


Everything in this webbook is in a beginning phase. I, the writer, am neurodivergent (this could probably be claimed, in some way or another, by a majority of those drawn to Ortho-Bionomy. My particular style is more interested in beginnings than in completions. In grammar this is known as the inchoative aspect, referring to the beginning of a state.


[If you have not read the "key" in the sidebar I will point out that the red words above indicate the text is hyperlinked to an external website. When is green it will take you to an internal page.]


This makes an aspect of Ortho-Bionomy particularly easy and sensible for me. It holds me to my kuleana, my area of responsibility. Establish a relationship (trust), and respect the principle of reciprocity. It is not my responsibility to 'fix' whatever this other person has deemed to be a problem. I learn to find my own well-being nesting in learned ignorance.



The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

I am I and my circumstance;

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself.                       —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET

Changing the Conversation

I was born. I am always a vessel for something other than myself. The self is only a

vehicle for Foreign matter which comes from elsewhere and is destined to go on

elsewhere without me, whether it's words, smells, vision                                                      ––EMANUELE COCCIA  Metamorphoses

The Story Teller

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics,  clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.

What you do, what you become, is not my concern.                      ROBERT MCCALL



Yes, there is beauty

There is love

There is joy.

All you who suffer from

the world's miseries

Defend them.
