This month I am participating in The August Break 2012, run by the lovely Susannah Conway. At the end of each week of August I will share seven snaps of life and seven slices of mind.
1 / Envigourated by the first online workshop on ‘Introduction to Tarot by Lon Milo DuQuette (Lesson 1: The Major Arcana)’ … mind you, I needed the envigourating effects of very strong coffee for the 2 a.m. (Thailand time) start!
2 / Satisfied (and weirdly relieved) folding away the clean clothes that were piled up in baskets for more than three weeks … oh the little things.
3 / Excited to see our new book publication, The Hermes Paradigm, Book Two: The First Work, off to print.
4 / Completing the ‘generosity circle’ with our neighbour who graciously let us shower at her house for many nights when we had no water supply to our house (water pump and tank problems).
5 / Admiring the determination of my teacher and friend in following his true path in tai chi chu’an by imminetly journeying to Wudang Mountain, China with a group of senior sifus.
6 / Resonating with the Wheel of Dharma and Wheel of Life symbolism - now that I am more aware of the symbol I am seeing it everywhere … temples, decorative temple walls and even photocopying shops!
7 / Dancing and singing (albeit in quite a crazy fashion) with Magus to the tunes of Bowie in order to cheer up Rainbow Eyes and lift him from one of his tantrums (and I say ‘one’ as there are many tantrums per day, apparently ‘normal’ for a two year old).
“Everything in heaven and earth is connected to everything in heaven and earth.
Everything in heaven and earth is the reflection of everything in heaven and earth.
Everything in heaven and earth contains the pattern of everything in heaven and earth.
Look hard enough at anything and you will eventually see eveything.”
~ Rabbi Lamed Ben Clifford ~
