Apart from and more central to playing rhythms correctly - so they sound and feel good - Jaki the professed non-teacher advised drummers to "play what the stick wants." He also said: "You can't improve the drum." He believed there are purely physical elements that determine both the course of the improvised drum "composition" and how well it is being played. Due to the mass, the speed and how the drum behaves, there are movements that somehow function well - for the stick - and that a drummer shouldn't oppose the sticks' aims but follow them.

Getting out of [the rabbit hole of total immersion in the networked world] is about slowness and about finding alternatives to the alienation that accompanies a sweater knitted by a machine in a sweatshop in a country you know nothing about, or jam made by a giant corporation that has terrible environmental and labor practices and might be tied to the death of honeybees or the poisoning of farmworkers. It’s an attempt to put the world back together again, in its materials but also its time and labor. It’s both laughably small and heroically ambitious.

Thank you sharing your story.. It was brutally honest but in a way to inform us that don’t know the real consenquences or those thinking of going into that lifestyle. I’m a woman I have a friend who came out of that lifestyle as well but he has never opened up to this extent. Still I thank God like himvyou were set free from that bondage. Your name is Joseph and I cant help but be remind of the years of pain and bondage Joseph suffered only to become second only to Pharoh in the land. God restored those lost years to him and blessed him with a family/legacy. I know that by putting your faith, hope and trust in Jesus as your Savior, He can restore you completely and you can leave a legacy of men who have turned away from engaging in this or being set free by your testimony. Again thank you for sharing may you grow in the Love and Grace of God in Christ Jesus!

1)   It motivates strong interest to learn from other traditions as other means of connection to the same liberating truth cherished by one’s own tradition --   a basis for reverencing others’ encounters with liberating truth on a par with one’s own.   That is to be preferred over an interest just in learning about other traditions as human constructs divorced from the revealed truth of one’s own tradition, the weakness of exclusivism.   2) Each tradition places great importance on its distinctive understandings and practices as constituting what it means by “salvation” or “liberation” (in Christianity, to be redeemed from sin by God, or, in Buddhism, to be freed from bondage to delusion and karma by one’s own direct realization of emptiness).   Heim’s model permits us to acknowledge and learn from differences in each other’s understandings of salvific principles, so that specific understandings and practices most important to each tradition are permitted to retain their importance within a dialogue of mutual learning.   This avoids the weakness of theological pluralism: the difficulty it has in acknowledging how specific differences in belief and practice may make a real difference in religious ends attained.

This touches me. It’s hard in France to be a non-drinker. There was even the threat of division in the church over the Lord’s Supper bc some wanted wine instead of grape juice and I protested that it was a stumbling block to the weak. We compromised with alcohol-free wine. This was my husband’s and my proposal and we were invited to share the communion message to explain the change. My goodness. It was incredibly vulnerable to share my weakness in front of an uncomprehending audience. I cried and could barely speak. But afterwards some came forward expressing struggles of their own so we could see God was at work.
