Yes, it is I. The Miko.
Obnoxiously purist and strangely methodical lover of chaotic order and curator of disparities.
I love all kinds of music. I even have a place in my heart for some country. Zac Brown's Toes is a great song. Incidentally I have a persona that is a foot fetish model and role play artist. Naturally this gives me access to even more opportunities for scandalous story telling and creating.
Life is a big fat story with other stories threaded through it. We are always telling a story no matter what medium we use. Our cells tell a story through the form we take and the things we make or break. Etcetera.
I have found in my trials, which I felt was the only route to triumphs which I so love, haha oh more on that later! Win-win-win is my approach. It's all in the mind is true. Also in the heart. Also in the body.
I like to explore life with one rule: intend no harm.
Everything else I'm pretty much open to and it really depends on a few important things. I want to base my entire life around these things. Starting now I seek alignment that is greater than alignment and the only way I know how to do that is to immerse myself in the being of my most honest self in the moment without breaking my one rule.
Why settle for that though, life is for adventure and experience which is the gateway to infinite intelligence.
I've been fascinated with intelligence since I first heard about the different kinds of intelligence. I was a thinker from a young age and a feeler too - big opinions. I started to see the world in a really interesting way and I realized it was different than others did. Slowly I stopped talking about it.
Over the years I have found myself watching myself drift in and out of consciousnesses. My energy was erratic. Sometimes I felt delirious. I'm just as surprised as some other people are that I am still alive.
One thing kept me through and it was not Jesus or God or Goddess or Satan or any of those fools.
It was intelligence.
I decided I would accumulate stories and then write about them.
If I could, I would also write stories in between. That's what holds life together. Not time. Not space. Stories. These are in our cells. A story is an atom.
That's what I think. Let's explore that and other things along the way. Remember, there's just one rule:
- intend no harm
And it goes up or down from there. I figure the easiest thing is to be as empathetic as possible. Of course I'm one of those empath people, haha, and we are very sensitive to how others feel. It sucks but it is still intelligence.
And you know what intelligence is? Curious. Its mission is to gather information and deliver it all in as organic and sustainable a way as possible. Perpetual motion. Infitinity is in our cells. We just have a very old decrepit story about some things that are all connected.
I want to explore that too.
In the meantime though, I plan to write my own line of organicc books and products. I've been researching the power of storytelling concepts for help through depression, anxiety, divorce, alternative motherhood as well as the future it can have in caregiving and hospice care.
We all have a right, I believe, to leave the legacy that we want to be left - at least in the form of a story that is like your public record and will. No one can be that but you. It's such an authentic way, I believe, to create a better history for our future generations. To honor those who have gone before by saying because of your strength to do everything you could in your time, we have now been able to do this in our time because of what I have contributed...
I have seen firsthand as a caregiver and as a seriously ill person the power of creating story moments to help us get through difficult times in our lives. I think that the gift we were all given was the majesty of choice. We are our own ultimate governance.
The gift of choice wrapped in the silk of story. That is what I want to explore. I want to make a leisure life a loving life, an artist's life the abundant's life, and those are things we all have within us.
When I did not have a paint brush I imagined one. I added sparkles because I could and the magic brush painted the world Christmas.
I have always wanted to have a hairstyle like Einstein's. I'm delighted that my bedhead has looked like that in so many selfies since it's grown back after chemo.
Anyway, I am going to put into novel all the things I've ever wanted to see happen in this life or even in my mind - like all the story ideas. They follow that rule too.
So basically, the most important things are:
- don't ever intend harm. period.
- you always have a choice.
then we can go into complexities from there. but the dalai lama backs this up. he believes in kindness. but sometimes it's kinder to stop the suffering.
I decided to create a hybrid autobiography experience. Then I decided I didn't want to do that anymore. I am not going to try to do anything. i am just going to be and do the things that bring me joy.
One of them is writing and storytelling with a focus on building knowledge that is experiential as well as language based.
Another is using storytelling ideas and holocracy with some other methods to create some interesting agile dynamic work cultures so people can get to experience other lifestyles.
More on all of that in my upcoming publications.
While I land my authorship full of these far out ideas, I am blogging at www.mikohargett.com and juggling all kinds of projects while I recover from cancer. Ask me how I do it, haha.
Thanks for being a reader - you are fantastic. It is at least one key ingredient to being a writerly loaf! That's me promoting food and leisure. ;-)
Also woven into my stories I hope will be ideas of products to make the leisurely life a sustainable life so that you can make your realistic dreams happen even if you don't have a lot of money. Or know anybody. The most curious things can happen. Curioser and curioser!
Hopefully I will stop writing this run on biography and start telling you about my alice and miko in wonderland stories. I'm still creating the characters.
But I am so excited. I am resisting the urge to invite people to the project for the first time in awhile. Because I feel like it. Rawr.
Okay check out my blog for more of something else. Oh and I'm just doing rough drafts right now. No editing. :) Except paid editing of course. I will sell out my opinion gladly and honestly even though I'm a purist. :)
Now I'm having second thoughts. Clicking the button.
PS: I wrote as Maria "Miko" Faith too. It was the pasta that didn't stick.
