Morning Zen

The crazy season. So very much going on it is difficult to stay afloat. It becomes easy to indulge. So very important to practice balance as the precipice grows.

Amazing how time progresses. Reminds me of Blinktown. That little town in SouthEast Oklahoma. It is so small driving through it that if you blink you miss the town. My days feel like driving through Blinktown.

Morning Zen

Seems to be important at this time to just sit for a moment. breathe. relax. prepare for the day. greet the day and all of creation.

What once was gone...

Has now returned.
I can't explain how much I enjoy the clothing of J. Peterman. Not sure what happened a few years ago with them out of business but they are active again.

Morning Zen

Sometimes I wonder about degrees of action/inaction. Speaking today with a friend we talked about spiritual life and fitness. Comfortable was a descriptor. Not feeling anxity about spiritual matters. Not feeling something more needs to be done. Not resting on the laurels as it were either. Not sure why comfort is uncomfortable. Constant vigilant action is probably not required. No it is required but instead of a burden it is freeing. Paradox. Once again.

Morning Zen

Ever try something you expect to work and then find that the capabilities are not there to do that thing. Arrg. That is not a pirate Arrg but an Arrg of frustration.

Morning Zen

Touchstones. What along the way reminds of where and are and where we are going and where we hope to be. Goals is not really to my liking. Setting goals was like setting my self up for failure. What if the goal was not reached at the time allotted. Realistic goals may have helped. Mini goals along the way to the desired end. Maybe too much of a laize fair attitude. Maybe goals that did not seem all that important to meet. So changes in attitude and definitions.

Today I am thankful for...
All month we were to start our days with this simple statement.
Important I suppose this month to remember what it is we are thankful for. Gratitude Month.

Morning Zen

Yes, time is speeding up. To be certain. There is still 24 hours in a day. The sun and the moon are on the same cycles they have ever been. It is us. Watchers of sun and moon. Our lives filled with haste and glory. Racing toward forever in flux. When I rush and when I run. Run rabbit run. Amazing how many songs seem to deal with this very thing. Do not fear. Enjoy the ride.

Movie Quote Friday

Not really a movie but sort of a movie. It has stars in it.

First one to get the "movie" and character gets a prize...

"Sometimes people are layered like that. There's something totally different underneath than what's on the surface. But sometimes, there's a third, even deeper level, and that one is the same as the top surface one. Like with pie."

Morning Zen

Find the time. brief moments of connection with the spirit of the universe. Find something, anything that works for you and do it.
