The Occasional Project V.3

10 Comments

Odd day vibes feels
Floating
Drifting
Wonderingly wandering
Limbo
Illusion
Delusion
Confusion
Disconnect
Not 2
The Void
Vastness
A point of creative space

Lots of my time in the last few months has been spent in daily meditation and self reflection.

Just as the CCE was beginning these words drifted into my awareness, “I am just a concept in my mind and a different concept in the minds of those who know me”. These words were my jumping off point. I always trust my cape and I’m known to jump. Additionally, Ram Dass’ ideas on becoming nobody crept into the mix.

Finally, “thinking different thoughts” was added when I read, “It was found that the average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those thousands of thoughts…95% were exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before. ~ TLEX Institute New thoughts seemed a good idea.

As these ideas swirled in my heart and mind they came together and chipped away at the foundations supporting the concepts of who I am.The ties that bind, loosened. My concept of myself, “ego” if I can go there, is out of focus.

It is scary. It is unnerving. Ask Lama Google, there is a fine line separating the mystic and the lunatic. As I voyage into these waters once more, there is a sense of disconnecting that is disconcerting. There is a sense of disappearing into the void that is both comforting and scary. What will be lost? What will be found?

I remember “It’s ok to be nobody”.
Enjoy the view. There is nothing else to do.

Thank you for stopping and interacting. You bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.

1. My pen pal E sent me a letter with this cool picture. It’s been years since I’ve had a pen pal. It’s fun.

2. The Cahaba Lilies are wonderful. I waded into the Cahaba River and promptly fell on my arse. I walked away a few hours later with a nice bruise, a few good pictures, and some video clips.

“You have an opportunity to participate with others now to make your contribution to creating something greater and more beautiful than each of you could manage alone. Your participation will not only nourish you, but will also contribute something precious to the whole.”

The world has gone into a cocoon. We have a chance to emerge better, kinder, more loving. This is an opportunity to change things.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate the likes and comments. Much love. Stay well. ❤️

Llama

This large llama stood right in front of our Jeep. Other llamas surrounded us. They all wanted food. In order to move on, I had to ease up. Stop. Ease up. Stop. Ease up. Stop. After about 10 minutes of this, the llama allowed us to pass.

Elliot and I had an awesome time there.

Cards for 2020

Leave a comment

I pulled three cards at the beginning of 2020. The draw is a variation of past, present, and future.

Tarot cards: The Lovers, Receptivity, New Vision. They are laying on my home altar.

I wasn’t surprised when The Lovers showed up as the past card. I haven’t had a lover in almost 20 years. I came very close once.

The present card is Receptivity. I try to be mindful and to practice loving awareness (From Ram Dass). Being receptive is part of my practice.

“Listening is one of the basic secrets of entering into the temple of God. Listening means passivity. Listening means forgetting yourself completely–only then can you listen.” ~ Osho

The coming year – New Vision. We will see what that turns out to be as the “nows ” unfold.

“When you open up to the ultimate, immediately it pours into you. You are no longer an ordinary human being–you have transcended. Your insight has become the insight of the whole existence. Now you are no longer separate–you have found your roots.” ~ Osho

These cards are from Osho’s Zen Tarot.

I Can Never Pass This Way Again

Leave a comment

Osho Tarot Celebration

As I consider this holiday season I know I will never pass this way again: these lights, this tree, these tasty treats, this combination of people, and all the rest will never be the same. These children will grow. We all will age. I will celebrate the existence of these unique moments.  I will open my heart, my ears, my eyes, and my mind.

I will remember those who are no longer present in body and I will know they are present in spirit. I see them in the ornaments, the lights, and the treats. I hear them in the laughter of the children. I feel them in the love and traditions.

I am present in this festive dance. I am one with these moments. I can never pass this way again.

———–

In loving memory of Ram Dass my mantra for today is “I am loving awareness. I am loving awareness.”

Personal Notes

Leave a comment

Scene 1:

Moment to Moment tarot card Osho Zen Tarot

Mindfully present practice. Trying to be aware. Continually entering the gate.

Scene 2:

QOTD: “One who does not touch the stillness of his life, one who does not touch the stillness of his being, one who does not know or has not tasted the stillness within and without, will invariably get lost in the movement.” ~ Sadhguru

Scene 3:

Intently practicing mindfulness today. Embracing the “what is” without attachment or labeling is sometimes more difficult.
