Card for This Day

3 Comments

Today it rains. Tomorrow the sun shines. Today I am well. Tomorrow I’m sick. Today I am happy. Tomorrow I’m sad. Round and round.

“… the giant wheel…representing time, destiny, and karma. The Milky Way revolves around a perpetual motion circle with 12 signs of the zodiac on the outer edge. Inside the circle are the eight trigrams of I Ching and near the center of the circle are the four directions, illuminated by the energy of lightning. The rotating triangle is now facing upwards, towards the gods. At the center of the wheel is the symbol of yin and yang, male and female, creative and receptive.”

“It is often said that the only constant thing in the world is change. Life is constantly changing, evolving, dying and rebirth. All opposites play a role in this vast circle. If you cling to the edge of the wheel, you may be dizzy! Then move to the center of the storm and relax because you know the storm will pass.” ~ Tarotx The wheel continues to turn.

QOTD: “…remove yourself from situations where you have trouble being and feeling your true self.” ~ Rob Brezsny

1. Here is a challenge for you. Every morning for 7 or more days, “say this out loud to see how it feels: “I know exactly what I want. I know exactly what I don’t want. I know exactly what I kind of want but I won’t waste my time on it because it sidetracks me from working on what I really want.” ~ Rob Brezsny

2. Another man I know died from Covid.

3. Starting with dried chickpeas changes my entire hummus plan. Starting with dry beans is so much better and makes a smoother hummus. I won’t need to purchase a food processor.

QOTD: Anthony Bourdain said: “I want to keep the assholes in my life to an absolute minimum, if not zero. That’s worth real, real money — to not have assholes in your life.”

The Knight of Water

“Now it is the time to be a bungee jumper without the cord! And this is an expression of absolute trust, not being reserved or hiding in the safety corner, which is what Knight of Water wants from us. It is a great inspiration if we jump and plunge into the unknown, even though it scares us to death. And when we believe in the level of quantum leaps, we won’t devise any elaborate plans. We are not saying: “Okay, I believe I know what to do now, and I will arrange everything, pack suitcases, and carry them.” No, we just jump, not even think about what happens next.

That jump is worthwhile, and it makes us tremble when we fall freely in the vast sky. The Knight of water Osho Zen refers to what will be waiting for us on the other side – a soft, welcoming, yummy pink, rose petals, juicy… Come on!” ~ TarotX.net

“Don’t waste your life for that which is going to be taken away. Trust life. If you trust, only then can you drop your knowledge, only then can you put your mind aside. And with trust, something immense opens up. Then this life is no longer ordinary life, it becomes full of God, overflowing.

When the heart is innocent and the walls have disappeared, you are bridged with infinity. And you are not deceived; there is nothing that can be taken away from you. That which can be taken away from you is not worth keeping, and that which cannot be taken away from you, why should one be afraid of its being taken away? – it cannot be taken away, there is no possibility. You cannot lose your real treasure. “

Serendipity

I pulled this card from the Osho Zen Tarot deck this morning.

Osho Zen Tarot

When we have a true spirit of adventure, we will move like this child. Full of trust, out of the darkness of the forest into the rainbow of the light, we walk step by step, fascinated by the feeling of the magic into the unreal realm. ~ TarotX.Net

Shortly before pulling this card I found this quote in the latest Rob Brezsny newsletter.

“Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement — get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible. Never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”
—Abraham Joshua Heschel

Do you see the serendipity? I’m not saying this is a message from That Which Is, but it sure looks like one to me.

Dreamed a Little Dream

4 Comments

I was grown and I was a toddler. We were in an old, white, rambling farm house. My room was nice. My things were there. Dad took my toddler hand and headed out the door. Grown me followed. We were headed out to get in the 50s model Buick to leave with mom. Dad is holding my hand going down the steps. Toddler me falls down in the mud at the bottom of the steps. Partial fall,one knee only dad has my hand. Dad saves the day. I realize we are leaving so I go back in for my duffle bag and camera gear. My things are gone. My room is cleared out and being used to store unused things. At that moment I realized this house was life. Toddler me was beginning. Grown me was ending. I didn’t need my things any longer.

I appreciate each of you. Your visits, likes, and comments mean so much. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. Seems Covid is coming back in a big way.

1. All my talk about thinking new thoughts is about deliberately creating a new story in my life, dreaming a different dream, manifesting different adventures.

2. While washing my hands, I say a little prayer:
May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness
May all beings lack sorrow and the causes of sorrow
May all beings rejoice in the wellness of others
May all beings have love and peace and joy.

3. I do not exist to save anything or anyone.
I do not exist to be small so you can appear bigger.
I do not exist to placate or passify you.
I do not exist to cater to you.
I exist to be my best self.

QITD: “Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement — get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible. Never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.”

—Abraham Joshua Heschel, Jewish theologian and civil rights activist

1. An unlabeled bottle

There are times when I think of myself as an unlabeled bottle, times when I can drop the labels I’ve been told I am. Even this body’s “name” is a label given by the parents.

2. Entropy: “….often interpreted as the degree of disorder or randomness in the system.

“the second law of thermodynamics says that entropy always increases with time””

~ Wikipedia

3.

I realize this isn’t necessarily easy. Sometimes we are in situations that are untenable but we lack resources to make the change. Change is coming anyway.

QOTD: “People can die way before their heart quits beating”. ~ The Dreamseller

1. Birdie’s pimento cheeses: Smoked Gouda and Roasted Red Pepper, Garlic Parmesan, Jalapeño, and Classic are flavors I tried out. Most excellent.

2. The Botanica is a cool house plant shop in Birmingham AL.

3. Artifice World
I can’t explain. You need to look at the site for yourself.

4. Homemade Pimento Cheese
My dad used to make pimento cheese. Seemed easy. I gave it a go: 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese, one small jar diced pimentos, 4 ounces of chunky blue cheese dressing, garlic powder, and mayonnaise to suit you. I probably used 4 tablespoons. Delicious!

No wonder the south is missing out on the future.

I truly appreciate all of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better. I hope I bring a smile to your heart.

1. The weed eater sounds rather soothing as does the traffic noise in the distance. People having fun across the street. Laughter. I just like to chill sometimes.

2. Over a year on the CCE. WOWIE ZOWIE I’m vaccinated!

3. Fun times in the Ice-o-lation. I’ve saved a lot of money. I am working on my shadows. It is an excellent time of growth.

4. I may need knee surgery. I will find out in May. That opens up a huge logics problem in my silly world.

In addition to the knee thing, I fell down some steps. I was bruised and stiff but seem to be ok now.

I truly appreciate each of you. Thank you so much for your visits, likes, and comments. You make my life better.

1. I learned to make a delicious ham and Swiss cheese breakfast bowl.

2. A Ram Dass quote I haven’t noticed before (or forgot). “Nothing to do. Nowhere to go. The next message you need is always right where you are.”

3. Cabbage, onion, potatoes, garlic, fresh ground pepper, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, 1/2 a cup of water, other seasoning you like, cajun sausage. Instant pot, 10 minutes, quick release, after the pressure is released, lid off, a bunch of spinach leaves, lid on until the spinach is wilted. Eat up!

What beautiful eyes you have.

I appreciate each of you. Thank you for your visits, likes, and comments. Stay safe out there in the CCE.
