Card for Today

Leave a comment

Zen wants you living, living in abundance, living in totality, living intensely – not at the minimum, but at the maximum, overflowing. 

Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your ecstasy should not be contained within you like a seed. It should open like a flower and spread its fragrance to all and sundry – not only to the friends but to the strangers too. 

This is real compassion, this is real love: sharing your enlightenment, sharing your dance of the beyond. – Osho Zen Tarot

Dream a little dream

Osho Zen Tarot

Let me start with this. I do not have Covid yet.

Before Covid I was living my dream. Now, I’m not. Covid stomped all over it. I’m sure I’m not alone. The entire world is in this together. Being united would be the “A” plan But we have tRump the lord of division.

ANYWAY

It’s been difficult for me to dream a new dream. I have spent most of these hundred plus days of ice-0-lation hunkered down. I’ll admit to some fear. Especially when this plague finally starting spiking where I’m parked and people I know became sick and died. That got my attention.

My Covid Zombie face

So here I am trying to dream a new dream. I think I’m over the grieving. Now it’s time to regroup and dream a new dream.

Thank you for dropping by. Your visits lift my spirits. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. The sickness is spreading rapidly here. Much love ❤️

2. Hoop Cheese: I don’t really like hoop cheese but I eat it occasionally when grieving the loss of my dad. He loved hoop cheese.

1. I don’t know if I can do FB much longer. It’s wearing on my spirit. Maybe I’ll try putting some of my peeps to sleep for 30 days. I’m weary of the pain and suffering and lies and fighting.

2. I love kimchi. Making a new batch.

Cabbage 🥬
The “Secret” Sauce
Packing the jars.
All done.
Now it ferments for 5 days.

3. I don’t understand. Covid cases are going up 30% a week here. 48 new cases yesterday. So what do we do to reduce infection rate? We have a street fair.

1.

Methodist Hymnal

2. I dreamed I was someone else in another world. I was in my 20’s, athletic build, short blond hair. Wishful dreaming. 😂

3. I live in a county in Alabama with a high risk of becoming infected. There are many cases here. The number infected is going up 25% weekly. It’s a red zone. I am at high risk of death if I become infected. Another red zone. So what did I do? I ventured forth from WHQ on a life or death quest to the grocery store. Stayed tuned to see if I get sick.

The plot thickens. The risk increases. On a side note, today’s Osho Zen Tarot card was the 7 of fire, Stress.

Thank you for stopping in for a visit. Your visits lift my spirits. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. The sickness is spreading rapidly here. Much love ❤️

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. The Mad Scramble

I shot the video with an iPhone and the 8 mm app. The editing was done using the Splice app. Nova Rain added the voiceover.

2. All this ice-0-lation, self reflection and meditation is bearing fruit. I flipped out some in the last few days. Melancholy! Confusion! At loose ends. Adrift. Then boom. With the help of a friend I peeled off a huge, tough, nasty layer from my onion. “The unbearable lightness of being”. Growth is difficult. But I am better now. Closer to nobody.

3. I’ve been trying to get my oil and filters changed since January 2020. I’ve been turned away once. SpeedCo didn’t have the oil filter. That is just not true. There was some other reason. Beats me. I may have found a good local place. Maybe during July WHQ will be well lubricated once again.

Thanks 😊 so much for coming by and interacting. You brighten my day and bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.

1. I’ve taken a new approach. When my Trump supporting friends post risky Covid ideas and cures, I heartily encourage them to do what Trump recommends.

2. Not a particular man

A man lived alone
A man walked alone
He played alone
He slept alone
Ate alone
And died

3. Every day, you have to wade through a relentless surge of soul-less facts.
The experience tends to shut down your sense of wonder.
Every day, you’re over-exposed to cynical narratives that have been sucked free of delight and mystery. That’s why you have to make such strenuous efforts to keep your world enchanted.
I like to think I can contribute to the sacred cause of feeding your sense of wonder and enchantment. ~ Rob Brezsny
