1. The combination of Covid and the current civil unrest has hindered my lifestyle, leaving me a bit adrift in the ocean of my life. I’m ungrounded and have self work to do. My life was nomadic.

2. If I don’t move he won’t see me.

3. It’s been an entertaining few days doing “out of my routine” things and thinking new thoughts.

Scene 1:
I pulled the 5 of Water, Clinging to the Past, from the Osho Tarot deck. Such a great card for living in the Covid Common Era. The pre-Covid past exits only in our minds. The post-Covid future exists only in our minds. The present flits by into the past. If we stay in our minds, we will miss our lives.

Cling to the Past Tarot Card

Scene 2:
To embrace both the sorrow and joy is difficult in these times of upheaval. As warriors we feel the pain while we continue to shine the light.

QOTD: “Hold the sadness and pain of samsara in your heart and at the same time the power and vision of the Great Eastern Sun. Then the warrior can make a proper cup tea.”
-Chogyam Trungpa

Scene 3:
An RV washing man came by. We struck a deal. He is washing my RV and my jeep for $225. This includes the awnings. I’m happy. 🕺🏽 WHQ is clean.

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

Curbside Pickup

6 Comments

I’m trying curbside pickup at the local grocery store. I called yesterday to get the scoop on how small town USA curbside pickup works. I’m calling in my order, they will do the best they can, and they will call me back with the total.

The list:

  • Green bell pepper X
  • Cucumber X
  • Bag o carrots X
  • 4 Roma tomatoes X
  • 4 green bananas X
  • Bag of yellow onions X
  • Celery hearts X
  • Bag o apples X
  • 5lbs potatoes X
  • Big jar dill pickles X
  • Jif Crunchy peanut butter C
  • Canned pineapple X
  • Canned pears X
  • Raisins
  • 3 small cans tuna in water X
  • onion soup mix X
  • Bouillon cubes X
  • Bay leaves X
  • Small bags of flour and cornmeal
  • Cooking oil 32oz
  • TP X (I was surprised it was available)
  • SOLO style cups
  • Bug spray
  • Liquid dish detergent X
  • Graham crackers or saltines. X
  • 2 Diet Coke X
  • 2 diet DP X
  • Sharp cheddar X
  • Hoop cheese X
  • 1/2 gallon low-fat milk X
  • Almond milk X
  • Men’s multi vitamins
  • Guinness stout

The items with an “X” are the items that were available. The employees did a great job. It was as safe as possibly. The grand total for this adventure was $88 and change and should feed me for 2 or 3 weeks. When I got home I wiped down some things with a Lysol wipe, others got a soapy bath, and a few others were put in isolation for a week.

All loaded up

Covid Day 10

Osho Zen Tarot 3 of Clouds

My take away? In the time of Covid-19 the isolation can leave us feeling helpless, cold, and alone. It is ok to scream, beat your pillow or drum, and cry. I beat my drum every day. The rainbow-tears on the face are tears of hope, tears of healing, tears of growth. Feel the fear and the pain. Let it pass thru you. Be gentle with yourself and others. This is passing as all things are.

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.

I am grateful for a beautiful day. We had the widows open. We played outside. We went to the grill for kid’s chicken fingers and an adult beverage. Good times in Paradise.
