Extreme wild abiding
« on: July 17, 2015, 11:47:40 AM »
Extreme cause involving a situation in which eventually "you fail = you die" or at least feel a strong pain. Like, bones breacking, lung cells exploding...

Wild cause it's all about our place in nature and so it gains a lot to be practiced in natural environment.

To me it's an important thing cause abiding our place in nature is one of the primal stage in order to know and accept who we are, what we are, fuckin little, fragile mortals, but able to do great things.
Plus discovering, learning about and feeling deeply nature is a great positive thing. I abide that too.

Fortunately for most of us, there are solutions making these activities secure even if it looks dangerous.
Well... Mostly secure. At least enough to limit risks to an acceptable level.

I love these "extreme wild abiding" ways. They are often quite technical stuffs so it is not an easy thing to be specialized in many practices. But with time we can try a lot and they are massive mindblows.

I've tryed...
- Horse riding
- Snowboarding
- Bodyboarding
- Kayaking
- Apnea
- Scuba diving
- Tree climbing, like enough to be trained and active instructor

It's pretty exhausting, but I abide strong connection btwn Nature and human asks for efforts, like carrying pounds of gear, being able to use it and sweating while doing it. Even suffering a bit because it can hurt. Life hurts, that's the way it is. These stuffs helps me abiding that too.

Have you felt this incredible perfection of here and now while a shark was swimming around you, a swinging tree holding you during strong wind, a wave lifting you hard above a reef, or the vacuum calling under your feet / board ? How was that ?

Do you too love feeling harmoniously in place in nature's magnificence thank to such activities ?

How much dudeist is this ?

When I was younger I thrived on going out into the wild with minimal supplies and hanging out and hiking around for days.(On occasion weeks) Sort of living off the land. But I did bring coffee.
A good packable survival rifle is great for small game.
It really is amazing how your attitude changes. Something very primal that was there all along just gains strength and resets all the factory settings.
Great stuff.

Hunting is also a real psychological touchstone. We all have a hunter in us.
Just doing the wild thing. Getting in the head of a big buck that's in the area. Reading the sign.
Figuring out his deal is very great.
Eventually killing him and dragging him home and eating him completes the circle.
But don't be mistaken. The deer usually wins easily. It's a real challenge.
Most folk hunt for years before getting a buck. Especially in the big woods here.
I only hunt that. No farmlands or woodlots. That's not as pure IMO.

Interesting, didn't thought "extreme" would involve others death. So far it is acceptable prays I guess it's a way to introduce primal ways to abide.

Survival thing is also very interesting.

Thanks !

Basic idea is that by living as close to a balance with the natural environment around us, playing the part that we are supposed to, we find our most basic and primal way of abiding.
As harsh as the predator and pray relationship may seem it is integral to striking the right balance that all things depend on. Once you get rid of predators and you cut down the woodlots and plant gardens and golf courses and highways then the deer population explodes. Is that a good thing?
Limes disease, chronic wasting disease amongst others.
