A perfect cup of tea.

The sun is dropping below the tree line. A storm lurks in the distance.

I am grateful for a great day, good heath, and a pleasant companion. It is a positive vibes day.

Card for This Day

2 Comments

Archangel Michael says that fear is the only thing interfering with your happiness and plans. He wants to show you how to release any worry or dread so you can feel safe and secure. This card indicates that you’re ready to let go of control issues and trust that everything ultimately works out for the best.

Possible Meanings of This Card: You’re going in the right direction • You deserve all that is good (just as we all do!) • Allow yourself to receive love, support, and abundance • You are loveable

Prayer: Archangel Michael, please help me feel safe and deserving of your guidance. Thank you for clearing me of heavy, toxic, or ego-based thoughts or feelings.

My take away? I must continue to abandon the illusion of control and the fear that follows it.

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God….” ~ Romans 8:28

The universe provides.

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.

Covid, Covid, O’ Covid

8 Comments

Like a poisonous snake, Covid-19 is worthy of my respect and measured caution. I will not fear either.

As Frank Herbert said, “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

I might get sick. I might not. I might not die this time, but one day, I will take off this tiny shoe.

As I have for many years, I continue my journey in faith.

“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' ...do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.” ~ Matthew 6:31 and 36

Now, in this moment I have peace.
I believe I am provided for by God or The Tao or The Universe or The Goddess or other gods or you name it. This faith guides me and soothes my soul.

“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely[d] goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.” ~ 23rd Psalm

As we all know, forever is Now.

In the classic words of Douglas Adams. “Don’t Panic!”

Sending love and peace to each of you.

My Covid-19 Diary Day 2

1 Comment

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.

Scene 1:

Winter takes me down a darker path. I bought a ticket for the long way round. I am getting closer to the end. It’s an awesome ride. I like to think you’ll miss me when I’m gone.

When I’m gone….

Scene 2:

I went to my first Christmas boat parade. Best one I’ve ever seen. Definitely worth trying again.

Scene 3:

A cheery musical interlude for all of you who are mindfully living.

Today’s lesson:  “move away from the crazy ones.”
