How to Dissolve like a Hunk of Mud in a Bucket of Water

First you'll need peace and free time. The more the better. So do whatever works for that. (1)

Then, there are two techniques. Shrink and Grow.

Do Shrink. Practice that until you feel like you have a pretty good handle on it.

Then do Grow.

Shrink and Grow are powerful when used together. Like this. (2)

Do Shrink. Once or several times. Until you are sufficiently shrunk. Then do Grow.

Experiment with that.

Later on you might want to do just Grow. (3)


  1. Seriously. Vacant days and weeks with nothing to do.
    You'll also want solitude. And avoid driving or operating heavy machinery.
    This is especially important in the beginning when you're getting your first looks at it.

  2. Maybe a bit too powerful. Possibly incompatible with your lifestyle. Be careful.

  3. This is what I do these days. It's definitely kinder.
