Mesmerize

Being mesmerized is a state that one can allow, but the choice must be made for and by oneself only. The same holds true if you are attempting to mesmerize others; if you find you have a mesmerizing power over them, the choice must be theirs whether or not they wish to continue with the process. Mesmerizing or hypnotizing can have very beneficial effects on a person, as in healing, relieving tension, or to reach another, more restful and energizing place in your mind. But being hypnotized can also lead to negative places besides leaving you in the power of another person. You must know that person very well before trusting your mind and body to him or her. The temptation to abuse the openness of another can be very strong since most people don’t feel they have much power over their own lives. You can also mesmerize yourself and feel the benefits of the mesmerized state with no risk, as long as you find a safe and comfortable place to use and to ensure you won’t be interrupted. In a trance state one is vulnerable even to oneself so it is best to go into the experience with a clear purpose in mind and to direct oneself to stay with that purpose. Don’t you think being mesmerized would be best to use with trust in yourself or another?

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.
