Morning Zen

Bliss can come in many forms. Sleep. Today, sleep brought just a little more bliss. What needed to be done can be done in the future as the moment called for something different then the plan in my head. Sleep won. Cleaning lost.

Coffee Musings

Breaking the fast.
Sipping with warm sweet goodness of a hazelnut latte I wonder. Why is it that when deprived of something that is desired it is so heavenly when returned too? Why deprive the self anyways? Granted I know I can not afford to put down $4 every morning for a coffee drink. Which leads to another at 3:30 and another at 11:00 pm. So potentially we are looking at $10 a day for coffee. Not just coffee but gourmet really good coffee. So I save some money and life is not as flavorful and I am denying myself a desire. Why no chocolate. This is the season of candy, soon into the season of pie. I have a freezer full of half eaten half gallon tubs of ice cream. Temptation staring me in the face daily. What resolve is there to not climb in the freezer with those tubs and swim in the ooie goodness? Why deprive the self?

Emotional Pain

I think the first time I was aware of this process was in high school I was going out with a girl from Holland who was here with her family for a short time. Very sweet girl. I found out she would be leaving to return to Holland before the end of the school year. I broke up with her shortly afterward. I did not want to have the future pain. That is the pain at that moment was less then I imagined the pain of the future to be.
I am thinking it is like delayed gratification but for emotional turmoil.

Morning Zen

fuzzy bliss of morning. Chase the sun. mourn the moon.

Morning Zen

The thought occured, would rather have emotional pain in present then the possibility of pain in the future. Thus present actions are dictated by fear.

Morning Zen

Well it is afternoon again. More difficult when the little hand crosses over the high point of the day to begin to think of thoughts of streams and flow and time. The day has intruded into the mind and the pace and hectic of things and people and events crowd out the peaceful bliss. But then we remember to breathe. Do think they should build offices and buildings and places where we gather with rooms for peace and quite and meditative renewal. Go out to the rooftop garden, Wander a corridor, climb the stairs, find your zenful place and come back to where it is you want to be for a new day. You can start the day over at any moment you know.
