Cross-Post from Antonio Dias, Attending Quality

DaisiesAttending Quality

You see, if Quality is obvious, what need is there for persuasion?

Let that sink in. Look at any example of persuasion, any explanation, any form of consensus building. They are all attempts, like in The Wizard of Oz, for the Man-behind-the-curtain to get us to look the other way.

My work is centered on attending to the intersection of perception and creativity. Complexity cannot be reduced to any given certainty. Learning is Central: Sharing our gifts, Working together, Teaching and learning in reciprocity. Entering into shared Inquiry, Maintaining these practices as a way of life. Let’s work together to build practices, strengthen dialogue, and discover and develop community. Let me know how we might work together.

  1. The problem is that we doubt our own realities. We need the mediator, much like Walker Percy’s character in the “Moviegoer.” We need someone else to validate for us.


    1. That’s what we’re told…. Isn’t it.

      This is how we can only discover what we actually need when we stop chasing after what we’ve been cajoled and coerced into believing we need.

      A good first step is to develop an eye and ear for propaganda and weed it out of our garden.
