Perpetual Present & OFLs

16 May

I live my life as if my life depends on it,

in the perpetual present.

I value my experiences, regardless.

They have all together brought me to where I am,

where I am now.

No regrets. Many OFLs.

My mistakes are all OFLs. Every. Single. One.

OFLs? Opportunities For Learning.

The greatest fear for success should not be failure. It should Be succeeding at something that doesn’t matter. ~ Francis Chan

Proceed as if success is inevitable. ~ Unknown

Întention is over-rated. It’s simply far more important the way something comes across. ~ Jordan Hoggard

My process of being naturally comfortable with the not-knowing while getting things done? Maybe it’s due to having almost died on the mountain once, twice, three times? Possibly. Maybe, it’s my Natal Astro Chart config, and how I’ve come to resonate with it in myself. Maybe, it’s also due to a life of welcoming experience over worry, as I seem to get happier the older I get.

By not numbing to just ignore intense gigs because my awareness has eroded, just have become accustomed to them, and/or didn’t like the discomfort? Nope. Nope. And… Nope. In fact I notice and respond or don’t more now.  3+ years of bi-weekly Brainspotting in my late 40s certainly didn’t hurt.

I love that someone recently asked me about my 5+ year radio silence. DOOD, what DID you do while you were gone?! You’re so clear now, even in your abstract, like you really love what you’re doing and know how to care about it more. AND, we can follow and all share in that as well. You were wickedly brilliant and interesting before, though at times hard to follow. You’d Easily paint the WHOLE picture at once in a stroke, 1,000 words or 5 word metaphor, at every scale. Easily clear to you, though… Yup, YOU just saw it and felt it, though keeping up with your revs and where you were going, uh hem… and you, NOT FAIR!, speed-shifting in sync bypassing the clutch… it was exhausting at times, and actually almost impossible, though ALSO intriguing. Your simple steps were leaps of faith for me, and I’m no Evil Knievel, though I’m ‘out there, too.’ Understood, you were thinking and feeling out loud, Effin Abstract Expressionist you were, and NOW, TOO, though I feel it clearly!. I fuckin’ resonate with what you’re doing SO much more now! Glad to have you back! And, more so, glad you have a more aware clarity of what you are doing in a way you can express it to us! You also seem happier. I may like that even more.

I live my life as if my life depends on it,

as those 3 times on the mountain it certainly did.

On the 3rd one — a short time after, me still swimming in the experience still wet behind the ears so to speak from it  — i paused. I felt something stir deep within me that rose to the surface like Poseidon rising up through my Natal 10th House Neptune`Mercury conjunction in Scorpio, supported by my Pluto~Pallas-Athena~Uranus conjunction in 8th House Virgo, given plenty of room by my Moon~ASC 12th House conjunction in Capricorn. And, my Chiron could not have been more pleased. My head popped up as if a long lost friend suddenly appeared as if to continue a conversation interrupted, paused to gestate and ruminate, years ago.

Yes?, I asked, all ears. The message response came back…

Yes. Yes, indeed, Jordan. Yes, keep that. It’s yours. Keep it.

My rock. It was my rock. My equilateral triangle, basalt rock from out of the sand at the top of the Mt Democrat 14er scree field. Sand and blood and a rock. I kept them, blotted the blood with sand, Sand-Aid not by Curad. The rock. I kept the rock. The blood and sand healed away. I kept the rock in my left pocket for 5 years. What happened to my rock? It’s now a talisman. It’s now the talisman on my wand which is a whole ‘ other story in itself.

What Do You Keep?

What cornerstone do you keep in your life to brace against?

How Can You Utilize That to Further Invest in Yourself?

Adversity doesn’t build character. It reveals it. ~ James Lane Allen

Good. You’re feeling pain now. And, you know the best thing about pain?

No, Master Chief.

The best thing about pain is, it tells you you’re still alive, and to get home! ~ G.I. Jane

Get Home!

Well, theses days, we’re typically already there,

and that can be utilized.

    Reading your astro notes, reminded me to go back and read mine. I found that I’d written a summary sentence of my whole chart –
    My sense of aesthetic brings all my thoughts together harmoniously in a way that I can communicate to serve others seeking deeper meanings.

      I’m liking that. I’ve been doing a bit of the same Turbo Reading of my Natal Chart + with Transits. Good stuff.
      I’m seeing why I’m always better in the thick of it, in the shit so to speak. My Pluto~Uranus-Pallas-Athena conjunction in 8th House Virgo just love love LOVES transformation, shaking things up, and big-time strats (Pallas-Athena’s wise warrior and strategist qualities makes Mars look like he is playing checkers to her fluid chess).

      Layer in my Mercury~Neptune conjunction in my 10th House “outward personality,” and these kinds of times where adapting is most key are native to my wheelhouse. Less resistance from me to shine in ways only I can (11th House Sag Sun). I do empathize with those that have lost loved ones, truly feel for them. At the same time, mask &;gloves, etc, I see NO reason to put my life on hold, in fact quite the reverse of that.

      I’m having the time of my life. ImaginAction is born, graduated from me, and out there free to flow and grow and speak for itself. Just comments I make on others’ blogs seed blogs for me, full-on allowing influence — of course when it’s healthy. Lol Like that even needed to be said.
      I feel more community now. I feel a lot of people had the chatter and noise bomb-blasted right off them to reveal the treasure of their natural signal, and are seeing themselves for the inheritances value they’ve always had, though possibly never had the time or impetus to get around to owning and using.

      And, of course my 12th House Capricorn Moon conjunct my ASC never has the “No room In The Inn” sign up. Infinity coupled with reflection tends to provide a portal to as much space as you’ll ever need… and the Cap of the Moon in the 12th House just shakes it’s head at the 12th House. “Nope. You can give me your ‘A’ game, none of that 12th House black hole swallowing everything up stuff. Gimme some expanse BayBEE. I’m the effin Moon. My light’s not even my own, reflected from the Sun, so you could never take that away from me. And, my mortgage with the Sun for said reflected light was paid in full from the beginning.”

      This is frickin’ fun.

      And, “My sense of aesthetic brings all my thoughts together harmoniously in a way that I can communicate to serve others seeking deeper meanings.” Excellent. Wonderfully said. That’s a wonderful fit for what I know of you.

              Yup, I’ve only had 2 expensive Ray Ban pairs, as I had sat on every other pair. CRACK. Damn! The 2 expensive pair were accidentally left at a friend’s. I forgot them as I was leaving after dark, and not feeling like Corey Hart. And, they just kept them hostage. Seriously, they would hide them every time I was over, and in every social media pic I saw back then, they were wearing them. Shaking head. I just didn’t give them anything for Christmas those two years, except a card, “Here’s your gift. Oh! You’re already wearing them.”

    Every time I go to your site, my computer yells at me, saying “Danger Will Robinson!” lol, I don’t know why,
    I no longer spend a fortune on glasses, but have several pair all over the place and save the expensive (prescription) one for driving.

          🙂 I wonder why that it happening. It’s imply WordpRess website. I may have to put in a trouble ticket. Seriously, thanks for mentioning that. Is it due to the bandwidth of image-heavy posts? You’ve gotten me curious, as that would almost provide a bouncer at the door saying, ‘No.’, or ‘Danger, Will Robinson,’ as you put it.

            I guess it bears looking into. I’ve not seen that before and it didn’t happen the first couple of times, I don’t think.

              Thanks for the follow-up, Jolie. That’s good to know for the trouble ticket. Maybe WordPress had a bad ad or something. I have a premium page, so I need to opt to stop those anyway.
