a proposal

Excerpt from Denver, who might be excerpting E.Fromm:

A few characteristics of THE NEW MAN.
- Willingness to give up all forms of having, in order to fully be.
- Security, sense of identity, and confidence based on faith in what one is, on one's need for relatedness, interest, love, solidarity with the world around one, instead of on one's desire to have, to possess, to control the world, and thus become the slave of one's possessions.
- Being fully present where one is
- Knowing that to reach this goal, discipline and respect for reality are necessary.
- Sensing one's oneness with all life, hence giving up the aim of conquering nature, subduing it, exploiting it, raping it, destroying it, but trying, rather, to understand and cooperate with nature.


I'd like to see aking layout what it means to be The Basic Man.

Funny, this is what I just spent my evening with. Discussing those points. It's a good summary of the content of the class I'm taking right now. ;-)

Joining this class was definitely one of the better choices I made recently...

I too would love to see the musings of Mr. King laid out for the world to bask in their simplicity and greatness.

I'm going to have to write a treatise on the subject. I'll write it in my blog, but link it back to your original post.

It will be self published within 24 hours.
