I really think you nailed it, Uny, with the part about giving it away, in its various *learned* forms. That's at the centre of the mastery, as I see it: growing a perspective of coming to view others as just extensions of yourself makes "you" greater, and others, also. (And others are, for real, just 'a part of one's self', because they are our best, kindest teachers- no matter what their role!)
This reminds me of Ama, the "hugging Saint", who's hugged millions of people; whispered in their ears, planted a seed. :-) Someone asked her if she ever got tired of all this. People would mob her, and just endlessly be wanting. She was just saddened by the asker's genuine puzzlement.
She said, "you don't understand. You think your body ends here", (points to her fingertips, and takes in the whole form), "but I know others ARE like my fingers - they are a PART of me". That really affected me. I read this, and then I went to a performance/installation piece, which included
a heap of rice grains to represent the number of hugs Ama has given.
Nothing affects like a good visual image. Esp, one so beautiful and SIMPLE as little grains.
This particular heap, in a large gallery space, along with other heaps that in total, represented "all the people in all the world", in various groupings, was THE most compelling heap! :-) It drew me right in, with a unique energy. I was assured, by the people who cared for the rice, that it was going to be carefully cleaned at the end, and put to a good use, being given away. ( I had some ideas...) This was a lovely show, by the way, and toured various countries.
I'm thinking how a home-made balm, like the gardener's balms that people so need, would be a great intro to Natural methods. Lotsa Cayenne in with the beeswax, and oils, with a little honey. Maybe some rosewater..mm
I'm playing with some stuff of late called "spoon butter", ostensibly for buttering up the wooden spoons and such. I'm using it instead for my heels and elbows, and even for my hair, when I want to dress it that way.
