This was written a while back and I’m finally sending it out into the world.

Scene 1:

Prepping to roll in a few daze
Topped off the tires: jeep, bicycle and WHQ
Serviced the batteries
Wash the windshield
Stowed stuff
Secured the ladder
Laundry done

Scene 2:

I dropped a new video: Snippets from my everyday life during 2019. It’s a life in review.

Scene 3:

I fried up some tasty bacon. It has been a long time. Years!
This is the first time I’ve prepared bacon in WHQ.
I don’t like dealing with the left over grease. It was yummy.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t want to be a richer man
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
Turn and face the strange

There’s gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time – David Bowie

Embrace the change.
Do the dance.
Bend like the willow.
Flow like the river

My Covid-19 Diary Day 2

Osho  Tarot Abundace  King of Rainbows

This Dionysian character is the very picture of a whole man, a “Zorba the Buddha” who can drink wine, dance on the beach and sing in the rain, and at the same time enjoy the depths of understanding and wisdom that belong to the sage. In one hand he holds a lotus, showing that he respects and contains within himself the grace of the feminine. His exposed chest (an open heart) and relaxed belly show that he is at home with his masculinity as well, utterly self-contained.

The four elements of earth, fire, water and sky all conjunct at the King of Rainbows who sits atop the book of the wisdom of life. If you are a woman, the King of Rainbows brings the support of your own male energies into your life, a union with the soul mate within. For a man, this card represents a time of breaking through the conventional male stereotypes and allowing the fullness of the whole human being to shine forth.

In the East people have condemned the body, condemned matter, called matter “illusory,” maya–it does not really exist, it only appears to exist; it is made of the same stuff as dreams are made of. They denied the world, and that is the reason for the East remaining poor, sick, in starvation.

Half of humanity has been accepting the inner world but denying the outer world. The other half of humanity has been accepting the material world and denying the inner world. Both are half, and no man who is half can be contented.

You have to be whole: rich in the body, rich in science; rich in meditation, rich in consciousness. Only a whole person is a holy person, according to me. I want Zorba and Buddha to meet together. Zorba alone is hollow. His dance has not an eternal significance, it is momentary pleasure. Soon he will be tired of it.

Unless you have inexhaustible sources, available to you from the cosmos itself…unless you become existential, you cannot become whole. This is my contribution to humanity: the whole person.

Osho Communism and Zen Fire, Zen Wind, Chapter 2

My take away: I am mindlessly shuffling this deck. My mind was evaluating my supplies. How many weeks of food were on hand? How can I stretch things? Suddenly, this card popped out. OK, message received. “…inexhaustible sources, available to you from the cosmos itself….” Thank you!

Thank you for reading, liking and commenting. I appreciate you. Stay safe and well in these adventurous days.

Personal Notes

Scene 1: I got my second and last pneumonia shot. The site is a bit sore.

Scene 2:

I’m creating a list of things adults do that I don’t understand.

Drama:
people seem to thrive on drama. I remember back on Xanga we would talk about the drama llama.

Random rage:
I hate it when I randomly “trigger” someone and a rage pours out of them and all over me. I’m usually totally surprised and taken off guard.

Doing the same thing over and over expecting different results and getting angry about it:
I am guilty of this. Maybe it’s one of the perils being a teacher. Over my adult life’s I have jokingly referred to myself as a arrow sign on the side of the pointing out the way. That job has become increasingly frustrating.

Being yelled at for helping the other:
This has almost stopped me from helping people. I’m much more cautious than I once was. I’ll often watch people screw up rather than try to help.

Not everyone appreciates random acts of kindness:
Me: Would you like a yummy cookie?”
Anger?: NO! LEAVE ME ALONE!”

Me: “Do you need some help?”
Fear?: “Get away from me!”

One time I saw my neighbor get off the bus with several paper bags filled with groceries. I was passing right by her and right by her door on the way to my apartment. I offered to help her carry her groceries to the door. She dropped her things and fled inside.

I think this list reveals where I need to do shadow work.

Scene 3:

We enjoyed a fun campfire tonight.Campfire

We toasted marshmallows and made s’mores.

QOTD: Don’t be afraid of losing all the lies that need to be lost. Be more afraid of not finding the naked truth that, in the depths of you, screams to be found. You can’t lose what you no longer are. And what is really yours will never leave you. ~ Andrea Bal

Card for Today

“A man who lives through conscience becomes hard. A man who lives through consciousness remains soft. Why?–because a man who has some ideas about how to live, naturally becomes hard. He has continuously to carry his character around himself. That character is like an armor; his protection, his security; his whole life is invested in that character. And he always reacts to situations through the character, not directly. If you ask him a question, his answer is ready-made. That is the sign of a hard person–he is dull, stupid, mechanical. He may be a good computer, but he is not a man. You do something and he reacts in a well- established way. His reaction is predictable; he is a robot. The real man acts spontaneously. If you ask him a question, your question gets a response, not a reaction. He opens his heart to your question, exposes himself to your question, responds to it….” ~ Osho

My take away? I continue to practice living mindfully, going behind the stories my ego maintains.

Scene 1:

A bad storm rolled through so I went to Hill House to hunker down for a few days. The storm has come and gone. I am still here.

Scene 2:

10 year old boys playing GTA in the den. There is a lot of killing and crashing. A father supervises. Lots of energy coming off the boys and the father. Three dogs lounge on the furniture.

The boys had a disagreement. One got mad and stayed mad. Negotiation are in progress. Crisis averted.

Turns out this is a 10 year old boy sleepover.

It’s all a little much for me.

Scene 3:

Energy

Sullen anger
Heart goes to dance
Sullen anger retreats into cyberspace
Annoyance oozes through
Rowdy children
Anger
Happy rowdy children
After the storm
Birds serenade the rising sun
The old house lies silent
Sleeping children
Sleeping man
Bathed in blue light
I sit alone with
Cold coffee
In a cold room
Waiting
