Natural Practice

Understanding is not in a book…even if you really look.

Understanding is not in a course… even if you lecture until you're hoarse.

Understanding is not on a test… even if you're really blessed.


Understanding naturally flows from resting in pure awareness.

Understanding naturally flows from resting in the pure awareness of peace, love and joy, and optimal mental health.

Understanding naturally flows from resting in the pure awareness of loving kindness, and compassion, and from being at peace.

Understanding naturally flows from resting in the pure awareness of living a healthy and happy life, and in harmony with life’s natural order.

Natural play is the repeated practice of intentionally letting go, in the present moment, through resting in pure awareness.

Natural play opens your connection with understanding and wisdom as it naturally comes and goes.

Thinking requires intention, attention and skillful, playful, natural practice over time.


A.E. Mander describes the relationship between skill and natural practice to thinking in his 1936 book Clearer Thinking:

Thinking is skilled work.

It is not true that we are naturally endowed with the ability to think clearly and logically - without learning how, or without practicing.

It is ridiculous to suppose that any less skill is required for thinking than for carpentering, or for playing tennis, golf, or bridge, or for playing some musical instrument.

People with untrained minds should no more expect to think clearly and logically than those people who have never learnt and never practiced can expect to find themselves good carpenters, golfers, bridge-players, or pianists.

Yet our world is full of people who apparently do suppose that thinking is entirely unskilled work; that thinking clearly and accurately is so easy and so "natural" that "anybody can think;" and that any person's thinking is quite as reliable as any other person's.

This accounts for the fact that, as a people, we are so much less efficient in this respect than we are in our sports.

For nobody assumes that any game is so easy that we are all first-class players "naturally," without having to learn how to play or without practice . . .

In 1931, Walker Sales & Service began supplying propane to farmers in deeply rural Illinois.

Propane ran power generators since there was no utility power.

To remain in business required creating long term connections by serving others with intention.
