Grounding and other Principles of energy dispertion

The Principle is elementary - if you don't ground your electrical system, excess energy will shock or fry something (that shock can be a double shock as in I was shocked to see that my toaster fried or I was shocked to be shocked by my toaster.)
When handling electronics such as computers in the winter, one must be careful not to build up a static charge or zap goes the laptop. One grounds oneself by touching something metal( or another person) and thus dissipates the charge. The picture to the left is an actual grounding system obscured by leaves but the yellow rope serves as a guide to show where the system is. The principle of grounding is simple - STAY CONNECTED TO THE EARTH .
One could argue that the reason we are having global ecological trouble is due to the fact that humans think they are above the world (ungrounded). I think that might be true but that is not the focus of my little talk here.
My focus is meditation and the need for grounding before and after meditation. Since I don't know much about meditation other than my own experience - I know that my meditations are getting longer and going further and thus I sense a need for grounding. Some people use other people to ground them (not unlike a static shock) - I use coffee and the internet. But I sense that I need to ground myself to the earth itself more. Except that I am not sure how to do this. I am going to Google grounding to the earth procedures but I think that will get me a lot of electrical technical mumbo jumbo.
Okay, I am back with the earth-shattering news on how to ground yourself after deep meditation:
Why didn't I think of that. I guess I was too ungrounded.
I have just come up with another thought - the image of a parent grounding a teenager (or younger person) for their own good because ________(fill in blank). In this image, I see myself as the person being grounded (not allowed to do something) and I think that I might not want to ground myself to the earth and I think that I might want to get strange ideas and make them into stories or whatever.
So now I am stuck - to ground or not to ground. Do I want my feet on the ground or do I want to fly around (become flighty) in the creative ozone. I am not sure.
I guess I will leave it at that today - it is Sunday, a day of being ungrounded.

Happy end of a very long weekend,

I think you need both--grounding and flying around in the creative ozone. It reminds me of that saying, "parents need to give their kids roots and wings." Both are needed for a successful, or at least a fulfilling, life.

[url=]sacs longchamps[/url] One thing I did wind up liking about it was the style in which the story was told.

I found it to be kind of nice and a good change of pace since most series are so dialogue-heavy.

They're loud, uncomfortable and the wooden bottoms promptly grow to be chipped and worn down when walking by means of concrete towns. Maybe the clogs have produced a comeback, but the period in which they're worn is nevertheless brief. Restricted to parties and ballrooms as it is not usually feasible to trot around on wooden highheels at function or for lunch with buddies, they look the part but feet can only take them in short bursts.. What's wrong with this team is what's wrong with the two-party system of American government. It's got no center, see. So the first thing we're gonna do is bring in the admiral. Normally women use handbags more. Women does not use them as a material to carry their belongings they use them as style statement which projects their attitude, mood, etc. A perfect handbag should add spice to your costume that you are wearing.

Very similar.
It is a pity, that now I can not express - I hurry up on job. But I will be released - I will necessarily write that I think.
Not in it an essence.
And it is effective?
I can consult you on this question. Together we can come to a right answer.
