How to totm
to TEM' v., turn off the machine (totm)
To totm is to turn off the machine. Sound easy?
This site is devoted to exploring what can happen when you totm.
A whole new world awaits!
As life around us gets ever more tumultus, scary, and more difficult to understand (and it will!), you'll find that when you totm, life gets richer, deeper, more enjoyable, satisfying, and freer than you ever dreamed possible.
Your only guide will be to stay open, resist judgments, and think with your heart -- not your mind.
It's our heart that rules who and what we are, what and how we think.
If you believe that the heart is simply a muscle that pumps blood, and that your brain rules everything, you'll see when you turn off the machine that the opposite is, in fact, true.
My life is a series of adventures, with totming at the core of each.
I have created ...
... gardens you never have to water
... fruit tree systems that do not require pruning or watering
... a new way to view death
... a swim stroke that's relaxed, personal -- and will allow your body to move in ways you never dreamed possible
... a brand new container for sour cream (aren't you tired of your sour cream turning green?)
I invented the term elderatti -- or, more aptly, geezerati -- to describe old farts with an edge. Like me. And others.
You may be thinking to yourself that what I'm talking about is already covered by the phrase "Think outside the box."
This is partly true, but only partly. That's because when you totm, you don't think. You specifically turn off the thinking part of your brain, the chatter, the noise. You turn off your self-imposed limitations by turning your attention away from patterns that restrict you, inhibit you, remind you of all the reasons why something, anything, is impossible.
You turn towards a way of life without limitations.
You turn off the machine.
This site contains my totm adventures. You have your own.
