Days 50 – 56

Day 50
The view out my bedroom window
Day 51
One of my daily rituals is to draw and write in my junk journal.
Day 52
It’s been a while. Guinness has been difficult for me to obtain during the lockdown.
Day 53
I didn’t make sunrise but the water was warm and the air was cool. Mother played misty for me.
Day 54
With all the protesting and rioting going on in America it was nice to discover this heart during my walk this morning. A big “I love you” from Mother.
Day 55
Day 56

Thanks 😊 so much for stopping by and interacting. You bring joy to my heart. I love you.

Osho Zen Tarot Laziness #9 of Water

Laziness. Water: Emotions

When you are lazy, it is a negative taste: you simply feel that you have no energy, you simply feel dull; you simply feel sleepy, you simply feel dead. When you are in a state of non-doing then you are full of energy–it is a very positive taste. You have full energy, overflowing. You are radiant, bubbling, vibrating, You are not sleepy, you are perfectly aware. You are not dead–you are tremendously alive….There is a possibility the mind can deceive you: it can rationalize laziness as non-doing. It can say, ″I have become a Zen master,″ or, ″I believe in Tao″–but you are not deceiving anybody else. You will be deceiving only yourself. So be alert.

Osho A Sudden Clash of Thunder Chapter 8

The comment

This gentleman clearly thinks he′s got it made. He sits in his big over-stuffed chair, wearing his sunglasses, shaded by his umbrella, with his pink slippers and his pina colada in his hand. He doesn′t have the energy to get up and do anything because he thinks he′s done it already. He hasn′t yet turned to see the mirror cracking around him on his right, a sure sign that the place he thinks he′s finally arrived at is about to shatter and dissolve before his very eyes. The message this card brings is that this poolside resort is not your final destination. The journey isn′t over yet, as that white bird flying into the vastness of the sky is trying to show. Your complacency might have arisen from a real sense of achievement, but now it′s time to move on. No matter how fuzzy the slippers, how tasty the pina colada, there are skies upon skies still waiting to be explored.

From The Osho Zen Tarot

My take away?
I’m not done with this incarnation. There are more adventures ahead. Don’t be laying about on my cushions. Wake up. Get up. Get dressed. Get going. Life is short and there is still much to do and feel.

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.”

Scene 1:

Homemade kaluha day.
1.5 cups sugar
2.5 cups strong coffee
2 cups rum
2 tablespoons vanilla extract

The kaluha turned out tasty. After it ages it should be better.

Scene 2:

Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grows the perfect ingredient for an extraordinary Porter brewed in Colorado. Breckenridge Brewery’s Vanilla Porter. An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure.Vanilla Porter

Scene 1:

Imagine an auto parts store.
I pay for my quart of store brand motor oil. As I am leaving,

The store employee: You look like a person who has lots of adventures.

Me: I do.

Scene 2:

Things I saw today: a sea plane, two black snakes, and a red fox.

The fox paused long enough to make eye contact. That was very cool.

Scene 3:

Living, directing, creating the Movie of Me all day long, all life long. I’m developing my “letting go muscles”.

At WHQ this morning I made my version of huevito en salsa for breakfast in the movie of my life.

In my movie I went for a bicycle ride.

Now I’m chillin in a chair working on a blog and enjoying iced tea. Next the movie takes me to Columbiana, to Bread and Butter Road (I was attempted to talk a diesel repair person) and the to The Shelby County Museum and Archives. Ancient phoneAncient phone

On down the road I directed my movie to the Karl C. Museum of George Washington. This was a total surprise in rural Alabama. Karl C. Harrison Museum of George Washington

What a day with the Belle and E.

Freshly made bagels with freshly made cream cheese and Costa Rican coffee for breakfast at the Crestline Bagel Company.

Playing in the pool at an upscale health club. The body wash in the shower was decadent.

Spicy Pineapple Pizza and $5 Bloody Marys at The Slice for lunch.Enthusiastic pizza muncher

Eating with gusto

Mansion Live local music, food trucks, vendors, and dogs at Do Dah Day. Also there was the too drunk to be walking around around alone lady who came up and joined us for a minute or five.Do Dah Day reveling E and I

Aldis and Trader Joe’s for party supplies

Black Toad Dark Ale

Belle’s red Jeep ran hot. I entertained E while she arranged the tow truck.

Pep Boys was less than helpful

The tow truck and Uber driver arrived at the same time. I totally appreciate miracles, especially with a 2 year old and loads of groceries in the mix.

Back at the house. Everything put away. Chillin.

Late night run to Jim Burke to check on the red Jeep. The tow truck driver left it parked on the street at the service department.

E was a most excellent 2 year old companion during all these antics.

Back at the house. Chillin’ with a Black Toad. Black Toad Dark Ale

A great sleep.
