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.

It was a bad weather day today. I managed to be productive. I ventured forth into the ranging thunderstorms and procured my medicine from the alchemist.
Day 18
This Eastern Box Turtle was crossing the road so I gave her a free ride. I didn’t want her to become road pizza.

Day 20
I’m planning to rent a kayak in the week or so. I’m very excited. If I like renting, I may purchased one.

I thought I’d toss in a selfie.

Card for Today

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.

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.
