Primordial Syllable

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

There is an “om” in Mom. 

Remember to chant it today.

At least once.


Rest In Your Suchness

Saturday, May 7th, 2011

Being – if already in progress – needs no doing. 

It (being) already is. 

Whatever is, is already accomplished since it already exists. 

You already are. 

There is nothing else to accomplish for you to be you. 

So, rest in your suchness.

Now, of course, not later.


Rationalizing is Rational

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

What is the vector of your rationalization today?

Are you rationalizing Determinism into Free Choice or are you rationalizing Free Choice into Determinism?

In other words, are you taking conscious credit for what had to be or are you explaining away a choice you freely made by blaming the context, the situation, the environment, the circumstance?

In other words, what is your Rationalization Vector today?  How exactly are you saving your face?  By internalizing or externalizing?

Accept whatever you observe.  Whether you are externalizing or internalizing, you are coping, i.e. taking care of yourself.  That makes emotionally-pragmatic sense.

Conclude: rationalization – however misguided – is rational.

FYI: I catch myself going both ways most days.
