Coffee musings: sleep comes when the mind is finally at rest. In spiritual gatherings, concerts, horizontal. Coffee serves to fill the spaces in between.

Daily Meditation:

It is our earth, not yours or mine or his. We are meant to live on it, helping each other, not destroying each other. - J. Krishnamurti
Our earth. I think somewhere along the way confusion occurs. Dominion over the earth and all that is upon it. Caretakers. We are of the earth. Molded and shaped from the clay, spat upon and breathed upon by the creator to become human beings. Where did this connection go? The soil, the water, the air coming together within us. A part of our makeup. As a people we are just now remembering our connections to the world. We look around and see the pain in the world and that pain I think is reflected in ourselves. The cancers of the body are reflected from the cancers upon the earth. When the earth heals I believe the people will heal.
Speaking of healing, I need some acupuncture. My shoulder is sore.
Ready for some yoga. Commit to change. Ready to something. Anything and everything. Ready I hope. Positive. Doors closing, doors opening.

Daily Meditation:

Do not try to change circumstances or aim for a certain outcome.
Act according to the situation as it unfolds - that is all. - Zhuang Zi
It is the way it is. Acceptance of this is difficult. It is not the way I want it to be. It is not ideal. It is painful. It is... What is it that I can do about this? Fight it, push it, consume my thoughts and mind and body with strife against that immutable. Or accept. But if I fight it hard enough I will get my way. I will make it happen. That is really persuasive in our psyche. We can make it happen. We can make ourselves. We can achieve anything we put our minds too. Whereas this is true those things to achieve are in the natural movement of things. We achieve greater when we apply ourselves and our strengths and the help of others. These actions are set. It is right. Just as we apply strength and thought on other things and nothing seems to come of it. Putting forth right effort in wrong areas.
The stream carries us. We can fight the stream or flow with it. Enjoy the journey. Relax.
