Shamanism is another word for deep intuition, which has always worked for me. The reason I found someone wholly compatible with me was because I went on an adventure through various Nietzsche lists, to the Hegel list, and found Mike.
I’ve also found adventures exactly suited to my needs in the past. If I had to go through a semi-apocalyptic war-torn Zimbabwe, I did so.
I’ve made connections that have given me the basis for doing what I have needed to do.
