Philosophy is a love of wisdom, which cannot be quantified by grading rubrics or systematized by learning outcomes. Why are philosophy professors addicted to academic metrics that commodify learning? (A thread on #ungrading).
@Jessifer says that "grades (and institutional rankings) are currency for a capitalist system that reduces teaching and learning to a mere transaction. Grading is a massive co-ordinated effort to take humans out of the educational process"...
@Jessifer also says that learning outcomes presuppose what is to be determined in the course of collaborative inquiry, & should be replaced by "emergent outcomes" that "are co-created by teachers and students and revised on the fly"...

Let’s talk about trauma bonds which can form in toxic relationships. One pattern is:the person seeking energy supply will mirror back some of your most foundational personality and character traits, including communication styles as well as expressions and phrases of empathy.
These are the traits that feel most familiar to you, because they are part of -your- essence, character and personality…so you will naturally feel safe and drop your guard down. This will cause you to feel a deep bond of familiarity with the person. They may feel like family.
Then when the person who chooses/manifests/creates cluster B (such as narcissism, sociopath, etc) patterns may subtly emotionally/energetically pull away and begin to show less interest. Sometimes they will do this abruptly, and sometimes slow and steady.

Tim Ferris @tferriss interviewed Morgan Housel @morganhousel, the renowned author of Psychology of Money, one of the most insightful books on behavioral finance.

We listened to this 3-hour podcast and here are the insights that resonated with us.

A thread ....🧵
1/ On passing wealth to kids

If you are fortunate enough to save money, make sure to pass only enough to have a safety net without giving them fuel for entitlement. As Buffet said, “Leave enough money so they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing”
👇
2/ On gaming the market

Market cycles are unique. 2020 biological crisis was not the same as 2008 financial crisis. Even the most rational investors gave in to fear and panic. We respond to risk in different ways. Be greedy when others are fearful is easier said than done.

A Zen Story: Being in Awe

Bassui told the story of a certain patriarch who took one meal a day, never lay down, spent the day in worshipful practice, and lived a life free of impurity or desire. His disciples considered him to surely have attained the Way.
But an older patriarch startled the disciples by saying that the teacher's practice was merely "the foundations of delusion."
The disciples challenged the old man. "What deeds allow you to slander our teacher?" they demanded to know.
The old patriarch replied thusly: "I neither follow the Way nor depart from it. I neither worship the Buddha nor have contempt for him. I neither sit long hours in meditation nor sit idle. I neither eat just one meal a day nor am I greedy for more.

#FridayFeeling #Faith or Experience?
…the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. —Galatians 2:20
We should battle through our moods, feelings, and emotions into absolute devotion to the #Lord #Jesus. ..
We must break out of our own little world of experience into abandoned devotion to Him. Think who the New Testament says #Jesus #Christ is, and then think of the despicable meagerness of the miserable #faith we exhibit ..
by saying, “I haven’t had this experience or that experience”! Think what #faith in #Jesus #Christ claims and provides— He can present us faultless before the throne of God, inexpressibly pure, absolutely righteous, and profoundly justified. ..

2/ “Two little words we don’t pay enough attention to: Over & Next. When something is over, it is over. And we are on to next. I like to think about the hammock in the middle of those two words.”
 
I’m going to rest in the hammock today…what do this mean for me?

A Zen Story: Worse than a Clown

There was a young monk in China who was a very serious practitioner of the Dharma.
Once, this monk came across something he did not understand, so he went to ask the master. When the master heard the question, he kept laughing.
The master then stood up and walked away, still laughing. The young monk was very disturbed by the master's reaction. For the next 3 days, he could not eat, sleep nor think properly. At the end of 3 days, he went back to the master and told the master how disturbed he had felt.
When the master heard this, he said, "Monk, do u know what your problem is? Your problem is that YOU ARE WORSE THAN A CLOWN!"
The monk was shocked to hear that, "Venerable Sir, how can you say such a thing?! How can I be worse than a clown?"

A Zen Story: Creating Ripples

"The boat is coming to take me home because I have failed in my studies here at the monastery," said the boy to his teacher. "What can I say to my family?"
"Say that you did your best and that is as much as anyone can do," answered the teacher.
"But I wanted to be a famous monk and teach others."
"You can."
"How?" asked the sad boy.
"Live from your heart. I will show you. Do you see that boat making its way across the lake with the sun setting behind it?"
"Yes."
"Do you see its wake spreading across the lake? See how the boat looks like the apex of a golden triangle as the wake fans out from its bow."
"Sort of."

"Squint," said the teacher. "That boat is you as you leave the monastery. The lake is your life.

When he heard the gentleman out, Bankei said, "This matter of Zen is difficult to convey even by direct question and direct answer;

A Zen Story: The Crystal River
Once there lived a village of creatures along the bottom of a great crystal river.
The current of the river swept silently over them all -- young and old, rich and poor, compassionate and cruel -- the current going its own way,
knowing only its own crystal self.
Each creature in its own manner clung tightly to the twigs and rocks of the river bottom, for clinging was their way of life, and resisting the current what each had learned from birth.
But one creature said at last,
“I am tired of clinging. Though I cannot see it with my eyes, I trust that the current knows where it is going. I shall let go, and let it take me where it will. Clinging, I shall die of boredom."
The other creatures laughed and said,

A Zen Story: Hoshin’s “Kaa!”

The Zen Master Hoshin lived in China many years. Then he returned to the northeastern part of Japan, where he taught his disciples. When he was getting very old, he told them a story he had heard in China. This is the story:
One year on the twenty-fifth of December, Tokufu, who was very old, said to his disciples: "I am not going to be alive next year so you fellows should treat me well this year."
The pupils thought he was joking, but since he was a great-hearted teacher…
each of them in turn treated him to a feast on succeeding days of the departing year.
On the eve of the new year, Tokufu concluded: "You have been good to me. I shall leave tomorrow afternoon when the snow has stopped."

A Zen Story: Over the wall

There was an ancient mysterious wall which stood at the edge of a village, and whenever anyone climbed the wall to look onto the other side, instead of coming back he or she smiled and would jump to the other side, never to return.
The inhabitants of the village became curious as to what could draw these people to the other side of the wall. After all, their village had all the necessities of living a comfortable life.
They made an arrangement to where they would tie a person's feet, so that when he or she
looked over and wished to jump, they could be pulled back.
The next time someone tried to climb the wall to see what was on the other side, they chained her feet so that she could not go over. She looked on the other side and was delighted at what she saw, and smiled.

A Zen Story: Death Surprised
A merchant in Baghdad sent his servant on work to the bazaar and the man came back white with fear and trembling. "Master," he said, "while I was in the marketplace, I walked into a stranger. When I looked him in the face, I found that it was Death.
He made a threatening gesture at me and walked away. Now I am afraid. Please give me a horse so that I can ride at once to Samarra and get far away from Death
The merchant - in his anxiety for the man - gave him his swiftest steed. The servant was on it and away in a trice.
Later in the day the merchant himself went down to the bazaar and saw Death loitering there in the crowd. So he went up to him and said, "You made a threatening gesture at my poor servant this morning. What did it mean?"
"That was no threatening gesture, sir," said Death.
