This Week

It’s a #6 Day, so here’s a 6-themed video

The Mystereum Tarot Moment, 6 of Pentacles

0 min 56 sec

There’s a whole world in 56 seconds. I ad-libbed here for 56 seconds in a single take. That’s not bragging. I warmed with a great bike ride up the hill to the video shoot several mile away. Cleared out my breath, smiled and looked about a bit. Then, hopped in the cockpit to post a pole position time. That’s it. Not bragging. It’s simply a stat.

What can you do for your own pole position self in 56 seconds? Please don’t answer. Put your phone on record and give it a try. You may be surprised what happens when you’re on the spot, on the stage. Can you put yourself on your own stage?

Not a challenge or a competition or ego-tooting my horn in any more than to start the band, then the Band/Team comes in, huh? No need to do your 56 seconds in one take. Simply a question, a suggested exercise. What can you do in 56 seconds to further and actionably build foundations under your dreams? What does YOUR 56-second gig look like? Try it. Take your notes on yourself FROM your recording. Then, Take 2 if you see areas for improvement, or other directions you feel more resonant to take.

Study YOURSELF. Literally, study yourself. Record yourself for 56 seconds… or there-around. Please don;t take the time as Gospel. Make your Gospel. Hear the sacredness of YOUR voice.

Look out the window. Go outside and look IN the window… of yourself. What does your home look like from outside the window? Prepare with the notes you take from your 56 seconds. Take a deep breath and… GO! Just record yourself on your phone for 56 seconds and then transcribe it… or delete it. The delete option is the ultimate edit button. 🙂 You may find it just keeps expanding when you start to transcribe it.

Try the 56-second exercise. Why 56 seconds? Good question. The number is arbitrary. That’s just what this video took with no splicers or edits in a shingle take. On this one, it was a single take on the 1st take. Not on all my vids. And, I don’t find that to be a meaningful stat. It’s simply a stat. I’d much rather drive the car the way it was made to be driven so to speak. Practice doesn’t make perfect. Practice won’t even keep you from slamming into the wall when you over-downshift as you step deep into the tach and slide out the rear end to overtake you And SLAM CRASH. That what roll cages are for, right? What practice will do, though, what BITCh will do — Butt In The Chair — is…. well, try it. Over time, you’ll see. That’s a silver platter there for you. Now, can you fill it with your faves?

What’s YOUR short time? Your call. Will you give it a try? Comment please if your care to share.

Serendipity Itinerary for July 31st

Onto the wild beyond around the rocks in the wonderful Flow of rapids in the excellent blogs below. I’ve started treating the music section below differently. Instead of taking it down right from Shuffle on Sonos, as that took TOO long even if I only transcribed one day’s worth, I’m going to cherry pick for you to cherry pick from. Some weeks one, some weeks more. Simply depends — sounds like an add for diapers lol.

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see. I recently received her book and am looking forward to posting a review in the near future. I’m still adjusting to being this busy again, and I’m not going to rush out a review of Laleh’s wonderful work. I’m currently immersed in reading Climbing Over Grit, and without spoilers I can indefatigably express… YES!!!! A more robust review is coming soon, and I so look forward to dial into those words. Mini-review here.

Lizrose93 ~ elizabeth rose psychic and tarot. This post with the image of the painting with Echo and Narcissus + Liz’s mention of the Phoenix catalyzed me to forget the story for getting The gift of telling it differently. Visit her site for the Astrology, though don’t be surprised when you receive a larger takeaway than what you came for. I received a retelling from myself of a story that brought it into modern discussions.

Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. musings of a psychedelic punk rock renaissance yogini and late-blooming athlete. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too! Creative voice in multiple formats. Tarot. Astrology. Music. Writing. Life. Is she a Polymath, having multiple areas of expertise? Go see. She also has a session series entitled Co-Creating With the Cosmos that I recommend.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! Check it out on Pinterest! And, other rockin’ ramblings and Rantras and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way. THIS is a site to watch.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full and robust and full of feeling with fluid fluency and flow in execution. Majestic Watercolors. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous.

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life. Wonderful perspective. Deceptively simple drawings that I find magically evocative. No one trick pony here.

Ian Bryant ~ Tarot Sushi. A place for all things Tarot and More! Excellent and clear and depthful writing voice with full-on proetic substance. Creative writing steeped in poetry, nourishing soul food for imagination and creative expression. And, I’m honored Ian is using my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck and 192-page companion book as a creative writing prompter.

House of Ari. Sharing a personal exploration of gender in Sweden. Up front and honest and insightful as the experience and process of this self-induced rite of passage unfolds. I respect when people swim in their own crucible to discern and come to a more resonant relationship with themselves. It can be swimming in magma at times, though isn’t that how crystals and geodes are made? Clarity and creativity and actionable feel often come out of strong Soul Gardening such as Ari’s. I look forward to where this exploration leads.

Fernando Kaskais ~ WebInvestigator.KK.org is one web investigative resource for searching thousands of online sources, and public databases. Interesting variety explored with depth and verve.

Dawn Lhamo ~ Whole Person Wellness Coaching. Coaching, Senryu, Thought. Variety is the spice of life, and put together like a great cook, spices are even better. Try a taste of how Dawn puts things together on her site.

Alan Houston Cree ~ Cree Solutions. A veteran turned author – Genre: Espionage. Check out Alan’s new novel in progress, and he has a solid exploration track though his interests. Substance explored. Resonates with my reasons can be wholly unreasonable. There is a Serendipity Itinerary of sorts provided as he follows where his interests takes hem, actionably. Excellent metaphor and analogy for like regardless of topic agreement or not. Check out his site for some serendipity specific to the work he is producing.

Ritish Sharma ~ Aspiring Blog, Weekly Wisdom. Another great blog posting serendipitously about things in the world that interest him. Diverse and varied. Cherry-pick your next field trip from this wonderful buffet of posts.

Mandy Froehlich ~ Divergent EDU. Leadership, Innovation and Divergent Teaching | Mandy Froehlich. Administering perspectives on mental health to foster healthy well-being. This is truly a site where knowledge IS power. Not pedantic. Not corrective. Shame doesn’t exist here. Experience and powerful perspectives of listening live here. Mandy’s site is as enjoyable as it is informative. Self Help may want to watch out, as Mandy is playing the resonant chords to own what you feel, and actionably work with that wise in time.

Sandra ~ Into the Light Adventures. By Sandra Js Photography – Make the rest of your life the best of your life.

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Hailletrimbolie ~ Empowered Educator. It feels like she has listened to Moira and her internal sense of time and timing to start her blog. Good stuff there just in the listening to one’s own rhythms and messages. Enjoy Haille’s garden as it grows, becomes perennial, and naturalizes. I for one am looking forward to see where she takes her adventure.

Scott Spillman ~ The Point Magazine. New article, Charismatic Models.(My words follow, these are not Scott’s or the Magazine’s) I loathe politics as the great irony of our time, maybe any time when people who are not personally sovereign can be ruled simply by the sniff of a suggestion. More often than not I find politics in any age to provide a comprehensive, compendium anthology of the best you-can-talk-a-good-game-but-cannot-box-wimpy-see-through-always-superficial-with-zero-substance-hipocrisy people. This, is not that..

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music & Video

May you fill your spaces with the good stuff Your way

Last Week was a WOW 12-Year Old

I discovered a multi-instrumentalist Polymath. Check that link above! The idea of a one man band never knew it so well. And, ……

Music For The Week Brought to You by the Asteroid Moira, #638

Moira is Saturn’s (Chronos’/Kronos’) wife. As Saturn rules chronological time, Moira correspondingly rules Life Time, or destiny. Moira is one of the three Greek Fates — Nona, Decuma, and Moira. The thread Moira weaves into your life in your Natal Astrology Chart is that of your internal sense of time, your natural sense of timing, the natural rhythm of the way your inner waves pulse and dance.

I Like To Think of Moira As

I like to think of her as The Silent Inner Music like a glass top lake, calm, teeming with life below, though still. And, I feel the ways we are naturally influenced comes from how this calm, glass top lake of our Silent Inner Music ripples and resonates to strike chords and interference pattern dischords within us as we experience things. For example: when you experience trauma, I gather there are interference patterns across this lake like its disturbed; when you experience beauty or joy or pleasure or all three, I gather there are wonderful, sacred geometry patterns resonating and reverberating in harmony, and that maybe what brings on those cascades of ablution tingles when you hear someone singing who has a wonderfully moving voice that grace you with ear-gasms of varying degrees in part, parts, or all throughout your body.

This Week I Played

This week I played a single-minded game in triplicate to present you one of the new meditation and Mindfulness techniques I have created. I call it Breathing Your Inner Music With Moira. To keep it fun and simple and also dial in a hefty well of substance as well, I’ve made it experiential rather than technical. I hope with this week’s Moira gig you have the opportunity to hear your natural rhythms more clearly, hear the natural and beautiful chords that are struck inside you when you resonate with something, and as well experience your Inner Silence, your Inner 4-charactered ~A~U~M~ (OM) Silence.

You Say

You say, Jordan! Geez! Can you count! There are only 3 letters there. I just smile at that. What about the space between the notes in music, the interstices, the synapse invisi-bridges? The 4th character in ~A~U~M~ is the Silence that swims within between the letter-sounds fed from the Silence all around them.

~ Silence ~ The Silence of Light ~ The Silence in Darkness ~

I resonated with the trinity above swimming a quaternity in Silence. You can make your own 3-experiential preambles from the above by substituting 3 experiential gigs you resonate with to tune up and warm up your inner rhythms to then work with the simple, though I find effective, exercise below. ImaginAction made me do it.

Take a breather for… well… let’s keep to theme. Take a breather in full-boat Silence for 56 seconds (or there-around. Please don’t clinch up trying to be too exact. I suggest to use about 56 seconds as an approximate range for the initial length) with your eyes closed calmly breathing. Then, take 4 long and deep and full breaths. Then, repeat both one more time — the 56-second breather, and then 4 deep and long Master Violin Bow Bindu Breaths. Then, listen to the music of Silence within you. Experience YOU, the Natural You. Your heartbeat. Your breath. Any stomach gurgles like someone playing the triangle or tympani at the back of the symphony. Heck, you might fart and laugh, who brought the barking spider goos to the symphony? Have fun with it, and give yourself a wide berth. And, may I suggest that there’s only one Prinicpal in your Principal’s office. You! And, lose the office hours to simply be you, Sovereign You.

What does your Inner Silence sound like to you?

After Doing This Initial Exercise

After doing this initial exercise, I suggest to do this when you are calm, when you are angry, when you are confused, when… well, with any feeling you have. Learn your instrument. How do you sound inside when experiencing these feelings? What does your glass top lake mirror in its pattern from your feeling? Sacred geometry? Simple Notes that are simply pleasant. Chords? Discord’s? Full-on frenetic interference patterns? Standing waves? False harmonics? Ebbs and flows? Harmonics? Sharps? Flats? Both? Neither-Either-None? The list goes on as long as the ways you resonate whether they are positive or negative or just simply are.

Maybe You Didn’t Realize You We’re

Maybe you didn’t realize you were a magician musician inside with how your particular Silence is tuned. I hope you soon come to experience what I am talking about here. Again, ImaginAction made me do it. I tend to use the products and systems I create to enhance my divination, imagination, creativity, Tarot, Mindfulness, Astrology, Art… and generally to enhance and amplify the value I experience in my life. You can purchase either ImaginAction (103 pages, 78 in full color) and/or ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions (98 pages, 66 in full color) by clicking on the Shop link in the footer.

Enjoy the Inner Music of your particular brand of Silence. Everything you do swims in it as if your life itself IS the ~A~U~M~. Feel that. Is that cool or what?!

What Does Your Music Sound Like?

Fluorite for clarity

Thank you for your support.

Will you invest a coffee or tea in yourself and your creativity/divination/mindfulness tools and purchase your copy of ImaginAction or ImaginAction 2.0 below? Both in easy to use pdf format. You get to download 3 copies each. One for you, 2 to share or pay forward on a lark. Or, as Esther did, buy 2. Take care of yourself with one on your phone, one on your tablet, one on your laptop or other device. Then, 3 to share. Then, she bought 2 more. It makes me smile to know that people’s eyes may light up that I’ve never even been indirectly in contact with. Now, THAT’s a great contagion spread.

Your Life, Your Way

Have a Wonderful Weekend & a Great Week

A Poll & Lessons of Don’t Waste Trouble

I know Who I am. Who Am I to you? Not necessarily superficial persona, how my substance comes across. Let’s see how the poll shakes out. Ex-Ci-TING! This’ll be fun

The Poll Resulted In

The Provisional Name of

Clair Amara Foncé

with 6 votes, 54.55%

****

2nd Place ~ Clair Foncé

with 4 votes, 36.36%

****

3rd Place ~ Amara

with 1 vote, 9.09%

****

CONGRATULATIONS TO

Clair Amara Foncé!!!!

Clair Amara Foncé

A winner chosen where all entries actually won. Karen Sealey of The Pure and Blessed Way submitted Amara. Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even submitted Clair Foncé. Oz behind the curtain doing a little name matchmaking alchemy made for Clair Amara Foncé. So, the WINNER is really both Karen and Timothy for bringing together two magnetic names that created a binary star system of a one name solar system! Hey, they gave the me the recipe. I just put it together and shoved it in the pre-heated oven. VoiLA! VoiCI! can’t take credit for that. It is their recipes combined that did that. Though, it’s delicious to me! LOVE that name!

I’ll set up the open poll soon. It won’t have a closing date, though at some point it will most likely close. A month? Months? We’ll see. I am going to rest in that regard from it, steep in what came out of it for me, personally. On to this post…

A Poll Gifting Personal Lessons

I firmly operate with the premise that there are no mistakes, that those are all OFLs — Opportunities For Learning. Also tenor into the concept of OFLs the degree to which I can keep facing something wise in time and keep perspective and wits with my other concept of Don’t Waste Trouble.

This Poll Experience

This poll experience shook out some interference patterns that were nascent, often called triggers. What were those? How and where I get frustrated, and by what. Vulnerability. A furthered ability to receive. Moving right along after taking the car into the wall so to speak, with a newfound evening of the keel after righting the ship…

How & Where I Get Frustrated & by What

Not that it doesn’t go my way or lack of control. I’m generally comfortable with the not-knowing and what may come my way. I cut my teeth for decades on deadline, always on deadline, never really stopping, while keeping perspective. With your head down all the time in the work, though, Narcissus can overcome perspective, hijack it even to kidnap it to dwell only within, rather than both within and about.

It’s when I dive in — so this is on me, I own it, shoulder it — and I’m not yet adept at say… A Poll… :), don’t even have the Learner’s Permit yet. Yet, there I go trying to break it, test the system, and I hit the gas. More below about testing and competing with. You see, I tend to run before I walk. It’s simply my way. I get the hang of it, and then learn by doing. Heck, I certainly End with a test of some limits to know where not to point the thing later, huh? And, hmmm….

Vulnerability

Out of nowhere what was fun With The Poll like a birthday party, it turned into a crazy lighting storm of the crash of tech things all around in the Poll Post behind the scenes and out here. 5/29 in the title when it was 7/29, and 7/29 in the body. Yarn hanging off the sweater so to speak, and when I hit the gas I basically tied a rock to that yarn and tossed it over…. DAYum. That sweater went quick.

Exposed! Vulnerable! Yup, I molted. The snake his skin shedded, the snake his skin not missed. For… look at all the pretty colors now refreshed! And, advisable, though I don’t need to necessarily crawl under a rock to be safe while the fresh oyster-flesh colors adjust to the environment. I do, though, advise myself some rest, and to turn into what it is I am doing here with my public voice from the heart on my blog. And, keep this experience. Steep in it and allow it to influence me as I continue to move forward. Solid, new ways of looking at things, and structure, to explore. Good stuff.

The ability to receive

I was paid quite an accolade in a comment last night. Thank you Princess Rosebud of Enchanted Seashells. I wholeheartedly appreciate what you expressed to me about my way. That is quite a gift I will cherish. Thank You.

Moving Right Along. Evolve. Always Evolve

As I move right along after I took the car into the wall so to speak, I move right along with a newfound evening of my directional keel stabilizing the righted ship. I don’t try to evolve. I don’t try to be evolved, though I own that that is a positive consequence of the work. I work to be better than I was yesterday. I don’t compete with me yesterday. I’m more of an Architect about that. I build back in with the importance of a strong cornerstone to brace against within integrated to be braced in turn on and supported by a strong and conscious foundation… of experience.

Rather Than

Rather than, I’ll do better, as that sounds like something one would say to the Principal when in trouble… because I operate with only one Principal in the Principal’s Office of the world. Me in Nature, as much as possible with my Natural Inner Nature Always evolving. Rather than that, shame and guilt were left at the door 3 years ago. Like worry, there’s really no reason for them, really no reason to cow, especially in the face of something powerful, intense, or simply important and/or strong.

Flying As

Flying as high as your roots go deep requires a free flow of seamless segues throughout the system. Synapses of comms between all areas across the highs and lows confluence in the Now. This makes for healthy growth. The growth I experienced in this poll process loosened up my roots. That made for some wobbly for a bit, some rumbles in a tectonic shift opening a natural inner fault line. It also made me a bit Icarus at the above level falling from the wobbly at the trunk roots loosened, not so firmly entrenched in a solid way.

The balance was good enough. No falling down, just a little freefalling for a bit,, and as I work with a net firmly stapled to the floor… the tech issues brought up a rumble from below, and my internal editor came to the fore in force. This is a Part Of me that historically, tirelessly, never stops. Though, this poll brought him up in a new way. Thoughts of, even commands of, Shut it down. Shut it down now. You look foolish. You’re now crying wolf. Cut your losses. Cut it out. This is an. Outrage. Shut down this poll now. I was already frustrated, not in a strong place, though I protected myself and my sovereignty with, No. Interesting. This was literally an old boss of mine. Nice.

But Jordan, you look

I said, NO. NO doesn’t mean ‘no.’ NO means STOP. NOW.

That one word is a complete sentence without explanation. Is all you do critique? If so, what do you actually do of substance other than fit, finish, and polish? 1 you’re attempting to kick me while I’m down. Why do you only come around then? Are you afraid of your strength, your power?. 2 Are you familiar with?:

As soon as you concern yourself with the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you.

~ Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido — The Art of Peace

Rather than coming off as a school marm busy-body know-it-all, what’s your actual message? I’m intensely interested… because I dwell in the place where I don’t desire perfection, simply excellence with flexibility, fluidity, and results… actionably. I tend to hear Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s:

Perfection is attained not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing left to remove.

~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I’ll take excellence over perfection. Perfection would be death, nothing left to do. BORRRRR-INGGG. SO not in the Now. That provides a counterbalance to Daedalus and Icarus‘ story where Icarus flies too high, his wax melts, and he falls as his feathers fall out. Youth falling out of the sky like chaff from the wheat in the wind from poorly attached tools? Please keep that youth stuff. Simply integrate it more effectively as…:

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Proverb

That concept, nothing more to remove internally, is the immediate and also lifelong goal of the Psychological modality of Brainspotting. Nothing left to remove. Unfettered, one is able to live their life in seamless segues of connection. AND, I’ll add… wasn’t that really me posing the question to myself if I am afraid of my strength and power? Of course it was. I had a beautifully vulnerable series of moments as this poll experience began to unfold not even to get up to a house of cards. It just kept fawn-stumbling around. One thing after another, tumbling, free-falling. COOL. I have some new ways to learn how to walk! Work on the legs, the trunk. Work on that which supports me.

The Poll Trouble Provided Me Lessons in

Under Stress, How Integrated and Reinforced My Connections Are or Are Not

Because under stress is when you discover the treasures of your triggers. Face them. Address them in silence, and listen with locked eyes. What’s their message. After listening fully, listening through their pauses, and Rantras and admonishments and accusations and blaming and shaming and and and… and they subside to listen back, I ask, Do you have a message for me? What is your message? THe focused power of patience flows in to the space between and around us. It may take a minute. A month. A Year. Several took 47 years until ai was 52. No expectations. Once the question is out there, I now subside, give who I asked the full floor until after they have responded. It’s like a voicemail. Leave one. Wait until they call back. Leaving two or three or more before they respond? That can be another story for another time. Wait. Keep it. Keep the wait. The respect does well for the full perspective of the other to form in response. And also, they’re not required to. They may have responded non-verbally. Listen to that response as well.

Adversity doesn’t build character. It reveals it.

~ James Lane Allen… though, I think Aristotle said it prior… which makes me wonder if he stole it from the Egyptians… who in turn… all the back to my alter ego Grog… who I think went to the future to steal, Good poets borrow Great poets steal, from T.S. Eliot… who as we all know also traveled 100 years into the future to steal it from me. Geez. Maybe we should create a new word. Plagiarism. Think it will catch on?

What has caught on for you during the experience of this most every planet and asteroid (larger ones) transiting is in Rx (Retrograde) week?

Echo and Narcissus Compose the Phoenix, Part 2

Blog By Comment Post Inspired by

Elizabeth Rose Psychic and Tarot. This post with the image of the painting with Echo and Narcissus + Liz’s mention of the Phoenix catalyzed me to forget the story for getting The gift of telling it differently. Visit her site for the Astrology, though don’t be surprised when you receive a larger takeaway than what you came for.

Visit Part 1 of Echo and Narcissus Compose the Phoenix Here

Part 2

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

~ Malay Proverb
“Echo and Narcissus” by John William Waterhouse
Echo and Narcissus by John William Waterhouse

Excellent image for this post today. Echo hears herself, and that hearing comes from echoes outside in response to her voice from within. Chords are struck to resonate. She begins to connect. Narcissus sees himself, is hypnotized from within, magnetized and pulled inside to orbit only in that world where the external more and more falls away. He gets lost in there, chases false horizons in his unconscious isolation. She gets found. She finds herself connecting. Echo is the potential spark that lights his Phoenix to fire back up within and push his head out of his heart and resurrect out here, most likely with epic experiences from traumas he tilled that then unfold.

Flying As High As Your Roots Go Deep

Flying as high as your roots go deep requires a free flow of seamless segues throughout the system so synapses of comms between all areas across the highs and low confluence in the Now for clear perspective to not cantilever too far, and to sometimes intentionally do so to stretch and grow.

To paraphrase French aviator and writer Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, perfection is attained not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing left to remove ~ was reminded of this again on Cristian Mihai’s site… loved this expression… guess it flew away for a while. It also provides a counter to Daedalus and Icarus with Icarus falling, youth falling off like chaff from the wheat in the wind. Please keep that youth stuff.

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Proverb

That concept, nothing more to remove internally, is the immediate and also lifelong goal of the Psychological modality of Brainspotting. Nothing left to remove. Unfettered, one is able to live their life in seamless segues of connection.

Are We

Are we able to move through life like a Voyager spacecraft where the further it goes along through the solar system into space and eventually past the solar shock point and out of the Heliosphere, the more and more we elucidate, the more value we abduct, draw out of our infinite, internal well to build even more value in our experience? And, both like a Voyager spacecraft untethered in space continually expanding while it braces against its rock solid rock bottom bedrock cornerstone of technology within itself AS itself, the earth itself within reaching nears breaking the glass ceiling of the Heliosphere — in 40,000 years, just about 4K years longer than the clock in an old apple device.

Do You Have One?

Do you have one? No, not an apple device. Do you have that kind of integrated cornerstone you brace against, and that travels with you, and that dispels powerful limits present in blind spots for further insight beyond what you know and feel now Continually informs you now?

Kali Braces Against Shiva

Kali braces against Shiva while she dances on his chest. Shiva’s complete calmness provideS a foundation for no bleed-off of the power of her movement. Kali is not mean or evil or even angry. Kali represents 100% uncut identity of Self, and that is full-on intense. And, when she moves, her movement is uncut by slippage. Her fluidity grips and moves with all of her power naturally. I gather so natural she never tires… which gives a new tenor to the meaning of sustainability not so nascent in…

Never hurry, never rest

~ Goethe

At least from my perspective. You may have already experienced the milestone of that trailhead cairn.

Is the Heliosphere A Trailhead Cairn?

Is the Heliosphere A Trailhead Cairn to Future Space Travel? This, I’ll leave at that.

What Cornerstone?

What cornerstone in life like Shiva do you brace against to support building further value in your life In ways that are intensely good for you? And, by being intensely good for you, your presence is good for the health of the world.

Can you wrap your head and heart around the notion that putting yourself 1st is inherently good and not selfish? Can you wrap yourself around that notion where being self-centered simply indicates you have center, a nucleus, and inner Sun-4-of-Pentacles cornerstone?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question about Center in Self as you brace against your rock solid rock bottom most natural cornerstone like this? Do you ask for what you need? If so, are you able to graciously and fully receive with a simple Thank You, as that is enough?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question centered with your rock solid rock bottom most natural cornerstone as your nucleus centered like this?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question with your rock solid rock bottom most natural cornerstone pushed up squishing you to the boundary of a glass ceiling of some life predicament like this?

Do You Ask

Do you ask the question braced WITH your rock solid most natural cornerstone integrated throughout you, Your Self and Identity AS your cornerstone Naturally…

With verve and flow

and levity and sovereignty

As you advance like this

In the united front of you?

How Can You

How can you be that glass topped lake fully calm and resonantly clear of gesture In action, your intent(s) fully engaged as fuel in your actions, while your wonderful Nature chaos of seamless segues in fluid fluency team with life below the surface continually informing your clarity?

One must have a chaos in the heart to birth a Star.

~ My Friend Fred

Glass Topped Lake?

How can you be like this Piece of Fluorite?

How can you be like this piece of fluorite so beautifully crafted by Nature and also cut, influenced — by one of our kind? How can you model yourself with a liquid and fluid glass top of the clarity of your boundaries cut and fluidly formed to be in the shape of You, from your work, AS YOU in the continual evolution across a lifetime towards nothing left to remove? And, with less and less to remove as you go further and further along, does that make life so much brighter and darknesses so much more fecund and vividly intense as depths, chthonic depths of nourishment?

Isn’t the Darkness Like the Womb?

Isn’t the darkness like the womb where we came to life? Do I say, OH, don’t want to go back there! I had to do all that growth n stuff, and development, and stretch, and expand, and I was never in control and my Universe fed me and I had no control over that..and, it was SO much work! I’d rather sit on the couch.

No, personally, I don’t say that at all. It just popped up as a hypothetical to bring up a question. Are we more afraid of life, or death? Death is certain. There’s something with a rock-solid handhold of certainty as none of us are getting out alive. But, life? Life is uncertain. Cool. I’m comfortable with the not-knowing, that which is beyond my Heliosphere, and that which is right in front of me that I have no control over. I don’t need control over it. I simply need to be in resonance with how my perspective allows and disallows how it influences me. Heck, no reason to let your emotions dictate how you feel. That’s part and party to low-grade starts in the garden of dissolution. Depression is a real thing. So is low energy from ebb and flow where a personal manual transmission allows you to consciously shift gears. Like in Mercury Rx (Retrograde) you feel the drag. Cool, Dafuqin downshift and recalibrate your revs in a lower gear than syncs up and aligns with the energies… that then begin to move forward differently and then YEE HAH MERCURY WENT DIRECT shooting you out of the turn with your foot on the gas.

You Always Have A Choice

If I’m required (by myself, I have to agree to it at some level — you always have a choice) to dive in somewhere, I Check to make sure it says Pool or Pond on the side instead of vat (of acid).

Vat of Acid, Volatile Oasis

A Volatile Oasis [(c) 2019 Jordan Hoggard] is where Narcissists and sociopathy live. No need to dive in there with them out here. You can disable your triggers in healthy surroundings, like with a Psychologist Or Brainspotting or similar. Your friends are there for you, though it’s not their job to heal you. It’s yours. They provide perspective, and hopefully some laughter.

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

~ Victor Borges

How are you already like the piece of fluorite above with 2 such diverse faces that work together For versatility and being fluid without being 2-faced. Like Janus. Also, I recommend being fluid rather than going with the flow. Dead fish go with the flow… until of course you won’t to do a little body surfing.

33 psi

Are your boundaries pressurized up to 33psi and road ready so they are in the shape of you? Or, are they distorted bringing anxiety and confusion by deflation at some points and over-inflation at others?

One the road sometimes you deflate the tires for better grip. Sometimes, overinflate them a bit for more slide. Where are you at 33psi, and where are you not. Is that intentional and/or Natural to you? Or, are you affected rather than being influenced like putting gas in your car. Gas all by itself is toxic. Though, put it in the proper place in the vessel, the gas tank, and VROOM!

Where is your gas tank? How many?

Is health itself a sort of integrated armor throughout You?

Blog By Comment Post Inspired by

This post with the image of the painting with Echo and Narcissus + Liz’s mention of the Phoenix catalyzed me to forget the story for getting The gift of telling it differently. Visit her site for the Astrology, though don’t be surprised when you receive a larger takeaway than what you came for. I received a re-telling from myself of a story that brought it into a different light, and may soon apply to modern discussions of Narcissism… as Psychopaths are born, though Sociopaths? They’re made. Made typically by unresolved trauma Living deep and in miscellaneous places inside often hiding in plain sight.

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

J: Excellent image for this post today. Echo hears herself, and that hearing comes from echoes outside in response to her voice from within. Chords are struck to resonate. She begins to connect.

E: fantastic insight, thanks for sharing your thoughts.

J: You’re very welcome. Thank you for the resonance in your accolade. Much appreciated. I had not thought of it this way before, though the image and your mention of the Phoenix made a perfect catalyst to pair, where the painting began to re-tell the story for me from another perspective… mine now… and, in an informed, intuitive reading format… could be called Beginner’s Mind fueled by a bank of experience… which I could pen as simply expectations inspected and left at the door to evaporate blind spots and see and experience what actually is, right in front of us, for more robust clarity and connections. I received the gift to teach myself a new self-created version of the story of Echo and Narcissus today catalyzed by your post. It brought me to forget the story of Echo and Narcissus as I knew it. It brought me to forget in that way of forgetting is for getting… makes more room for the good stuff. Thank you. Thank me. Thanks much. This feels to apply to the larger sociological and psychological landscape of today. We talk about and hear much about Narcissus and Narcissists and trauma and sociopathy and Psychological Projection and Projective Identity. Though, how many of us do the work to find and develop our Inner Nature as did Echo To connect, with ourselves and others and Nature itself?

ImaginAction in Mindfulness

See

Experience ImaginAction and ImaginAction 2.0 ~ The Unplugged Sessions in action in your Mindfulness Meditation. Simply gaze into one of the 78 eSpa Ablution Pools and breathe. I’m honored at this heartfelt accolade. Esther S. expressed:

Dear Jordan,

it was almost instant. All the anxiety blew away as I gazed, immersed in the image. I forgot to pick up my cards. I even forgot the question on the page. It was the most wonderful meditation session I’ve had in quite a while. And, when I did get back to the question later, when I did pick up the cards, the flow of the reading was SO me I felt so washed. Yes to Ablution Pools! I truly did discover Inner Inheritances. Even some things I was uncomfortable with about myself began to present themselves as allies. Each patiently brought a treasured message of self-wisdom from their experience of being trunked in the pain of my trauma. I was almost in disbelief. What was at once uncomfortable, and that I sidestepped at every turn… it was released in minutes. Unbound! My whole life up to that point became my toolbox, completely, unapologetically, and without shame anymore. Oh YES I received the messages I already had within, and then the body tingles, and then they re-integrated. I’ve never had healing be so simple and fun just like a great swim. Thank you.Wholehearted thanks for creating ImaginAction. Now I use it for Mindfulness Meditation, Tarot, and sometimes just to clear the air of my troubles. So Simple. So refreshing. I’m being healed by beauty, growing exquisitely. And now there’s ImaginAction 2.0? The world is a better place for me now.

~ Esther S

P.S. I forgot to mention how blown away I was when I first opened the pdf downloadeds. Really Jordan. ImaginAction is 103 pages, and 2.0 is 98 pages. All for the price of a coffee? Just wow! And, I loved being able to download 3 copies of each, 1 for myself, 2 to share with friends. What a grand suggestion. That also sparked something new in me. I love coffee, so for the price of a coffee I took care of myself 1st. 1 on my phone, 1 on my tablet, 1 on my laptop. It’s like I have digital fluorite for calm clarity and persepctive in my pocket wherever I go now. Like I said, I love coffee, so I bought two sets. I have those 3 copies parked to pay forward to people when the moment strikes. I love this serendipity stuff of yours. It’s no pie in the sky. Get a fork! I may just keep buying a set here and there, so I’m always prepared, stocked with such a wonderful gift to brighten someone’s life. ImaginAction is such a feat. I don’t know how you came up with all those depthful sanctuaries of questions. But, you did, and here they are. 🙂 You’re the best. Thank you.

Here we go!

Serendipity Itinerary for July 24th

Onto the wild beyond around the rocks in the wonderful rapids of the excellent blogs below. I’ve started treating the music section below differently, just taking it down right from Shuffle on Sonos. So, it’s become a Serendipity Itinerary in itself that I’ve been filling my spaces with. I know I listen to a lot of music, though seeing How fast the list grows? Wow!

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see. I recently received her book and am looking forward to posting a review in the near future. I’m still adjusting to being this busy again, and I’m not going to rush out a review of Laleh’s wonderful work. I’m currently immersed in reading Climbing Over Grit, and without spoilers I can indefatigably express… YES!!!! A more robust review is coming soon, and I so look forward to dial into those words. Mini-review here.

Karen Sealey ~ The Pure & Blessed Tarot. ~ Riding the cusp between imagination and reality. The Discarded Oracle is coming to life! Check it out on Pinterest! And, other rockin’ ramblings and Rantras and musings with no pulled punches, and lots of exquisite surprises along the way. THIS is a site to watch.

Bonnie Hubly ~ Watercolors on Pinterest. Full and robust and full of feeling with fluid fluency and flow in execution. Majestic Watercolors. Organic placements, artful scenes. Gorgeous.

Trini Lind ~ Paths of the Spirit. Create a path of Light with your Life. Wonderful perspective. Deceptively simple drawings that I find magically evocative. No one trick pony here.

Ian Bryant ~ Tarot Sushi. A place for all things Tarot and More! Excellent and clear and depthful writing voice with full-on proetic substance. Creative writing steeped in poetry, nourishing soul food for imagination and creative expression. And, I’m honored Ian is using my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck and 192-page companion book as a creative writing prompter.

House of Ari. Sharing a personal exploration of gender in Sweden. Up front and honest and insightful as the experience and process of this self-induced rite of passage unfolds. I respect when people swim in their own crucible to discern and come to a more resonant relationship with themselves. It can be swimming in magma at times, though isn’t that how crystals and geodes are made? Clarity and creativity and actionable feel often come out of strong Soul Gardening such as Ari’s. I look forward to where this exploration leads.

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Joy Vernon ~ Completely Joyous. Tarot & Reiki. Bookmarked for this week as there’s an ICANN issue pending. I’ve been there. I hate it when that periodic email required to confirm your URL ownership with ICANN for your website gets buried and lost. I’ll most likely have an operable link here next week if not before.

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Robert Ruiz ~ Robert Ruiz Art. Robert Ruiz is an artist from Brownsville, TX, who is also a Master of Fine Art Candidate at the University of Texas at Rio Grande Valley with Bachelors of Fine Art, concentration in Drawing and New Media, from the University of Texas at San Antonio. He is also currently the Art Director at the Carlotta Petrina Museum and Artist liaison for the City of Brownsville Mural Program. Check out his work.

Banter Republic ~ Gottfried. It’s just banter. Banter, comedy, humor, lifestyle, Living. He might even ask you if a period can be italicized. Be entertained and engaged. No hidden Oz behind the curtain here.

Theresa, Soul Gatherings ~ Spiritual Moments in the Human Experience. Wonderful quotes and perspective here. A great daily.

Gabriela M. ~ Short Prose Fiction. Author of the Year (2019) at Spillword Press NYC. You can swim in these words. Take a dip.

Keith’s SecondVoice ~ African Poetry. I found Keith’s work last week. He liked a comment I made on another’s blog, don’t remember which as I clicked right through to his site. Wonderfully powerful, muscular language full of grit and flow and resonance and well-played metaphor that is apt and expressive and clear.

Carsten Wieland ~ Brushpark Watercolors ~ Aquarelle und Zeichnungen von Carsten Wieland. Power in color and fluid forms here. Please visit this wonderfully powerful feast for the eyes and process expressed with watercolors.

RoadtirementTraveling and retired. This couple and their experiences and travels and family… just make me smile. Real and robust for being themselves. Plus, they’re gardeners. What ever could go wrong? Great sense of humor and wonderful outlook on life. Woo Hoo shout-out to the Roadtirement Etsy shop! Check it out.

Tutu’s edible logic ~ Food makes sense. Exquisite and intelligent and nourishing and informative.

Wander the Lines ~ Step into my reading life. Looking for a new book to read? Stop in here for a treat and a great perspective.

Delusional Bubble ~ Life is a bubble, Make it as delusional as possible. Travel the world. I feel Rick Steves is cool, and he’s also not the only game in town.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with. She doesn’t do negative reviews, understands that that is a waste of her blessings and value. I beyond resonate with and respect that. What’s the point of non-things? CHeck out good things here.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

Charlescearl’s Weblog ~ Musings on fascinating things. Important and fascinating things well said. Charles not only thinks things through, he lives them through. You can feel it in his writing. Don’t go for the writing. Go for experience you will remember. Indelible is a word, and a good one with Charles’ weblog.

Jane Lurie Photography ~ powerful, evocative freeze-frames of architectural images that are definitely not secretly active. These images live out loud! They are refined. And they are as natural as they are refined, like an exquisitely cut emerald or sapphire or ruby kind of refined. There’s nothing hidden in the rough here. These beauties have some pipes in their visual voice.

Timothy Price ~ Off Center & Not Even. Is variety the spice of life? Go here and see! The photography is magnificent.

Mary K. Greer’s Tarot Blog ~ Tarot helps you meet whatever comes in the best possible way. Mary matters. Professionally. As a person. As an author. Mary matters. Sweet and direct and courageous and inventive and FUN. Oh, she was a wicked cool sense of humor. Many deep wells feed Mary’s work. Warning: Immersion here may lead to ablution.

Enchanted Seashells by Princess Rosebud ~ Beguiling pearls of wit, wisdom, and whimsy-with attitude. I’m not going to add more words to that. If that doesn’t grab you… A Princess is simply a Queen not yet sitting..

Dr. Eric Perry ~ Psychology to Motivate | Inspire | Uplift. Wonderfully full and relevant and engaged Psychology articles with clarity of voice. I full-on dig when things are as robust as they are clear, especially when directly dealing with intensities. This site, is certainly that.

Holly Troy ~ Cosmic Holly. Perennial Gemini in bloom. Naturalized. Excellent garden with music, too! Creative voice in multiple formats. Tarot. Astrology. Music. Writing. Life. Is she a Polymath, having multiple areas of expertise? Go see.

The Dihedral ~ More than just climbing. A lot more. And, climbing is a lot in itself. Read a new route today at The Dihedral. Dammit! No, not wormsign. Worse. The covert Covid-19 struck again. Visit The Dihedral for a seriously wicked and wonderfully solid attitude of Not Wasting Trouble.

Cristian Mihai ~ Professional Blogger. Sense & Sensibility meets the info age? He’s not afraid to say it, whatever he says. No walking on eggshells here, well, unless he starts making compost for the garden. Excellent tips for bloggers and thinkers and feelers.

Susi Bocks ~ I Write Her. My words for Susi’s writing go something like this. You talk a good game, Dood, but can you (Susi) Bocks? Concise might even be too long a word. The consistency of depth here is… well, I have a deep respect for how much she does with so little and its never sparse. Muscular and powerful language. I’d call her the Bruce Lee of words.

The Alchemist’s Studio ~ Raku, vessels, Alchemy in action. Pottery with heart and soul PLUS some PUNitive humor to boot. Don’t miss the Hens! Another place of great perspective.

Enjoy the DNA of our Solar System as it moves along its 230-million year orbit around our Milky Way galaxy. Credit to A.T. Mann for sending me this years back when he was a guest on my Inner State Highways internet TV show. Hmmm, I miss doing that. Well, I might want to do something about that…

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? Us, our world and solar system itself in orbit.

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music & Video

May you fill your spaces with the good stuff Your way

This Week WOW

I discovered a multi-instrumentalist Polymath. Check this! The idea of a one man band never knew it so well. And, ……

A 12-Year Old Doing a Dream Theater Cover? Well… YES, He Is! What A BadAss He is! Performing ALL the instruments. Here is more hope for the future of music. Guess he’s not one to complain to his parents about being bored or playing too many video games.

Nature. Patience. Sovereign.

Adopt the pace of nature; her secret is patience.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


Reflections (c) 2006 Jordan Hoggard

Yes

Yes, and patience is not passive. Patience is focused strength. No moods, no anger, no malice. No need of happy mad sad glad. Only weather. Nature, and its patient weather, only as intense as it is at any given time. Even a tsunami, is still simply the ocean. Even a glass top lake is teaming below with resonant and active life inside it.

Assertion is not confident. Observe it. It is often blustery, is often superficial. Assertion reacts. Confidence enjoys the weather, and occasionally even responds.

The teacher is silent during the test.

~ Keanu Reeves

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

~ Malay Proverb

Serendipity Itinerary for July 10th

There were a couple of cuts this week and the same couple were removed last week. Openly, I chalk it up to my comments on their blogs not being in keeping with something… I don’t know what, When blogs are moderated, they are. I don’t stick these two with the kicked over, stacked stone cairn of my fave from this year of actually getting banned from a Philosophy website. I still cherish the laughter I had at that. Thanks Karen Sealey for participating in that. I never knew that expressing 3 apt and well-connected metaphors in a row to fluidly engage a topic would induce the consequence of puerile from the Ivory Tower. I guess I should respect that dood’s pain, as I guess being incarcerated in the Ivory Tower… well, I guess it’s prison until The Fool comes around and blasts the seed trying to burst open. At least I’M free of that. I hope THe Fool comes around for them as well. That’s gotta suck having to explain everything all the time. Heck, I have exactly one Prinicipal in my Principal’s Office… and, Sovereign, I don’t keep office hours. 🙂

Their

Their Blog, Their Way. Cool. I’ll shoulder it. Hey, I don’t belong everywhere. It’s excellent when I find rocks in the river I can steer around rather than crash against. I find that there’s no reason for conflict in those situations… unless of course they come back with presumptuous statements. Cool, then someone wants to play. That’s simply a different conversational intensity level, though still simply conversation. I will then simply thank them for their presumptuous comment. Don’t expect it, just sayin’.

Nothing

Nothing bad about not spending energy in places if you are moderated out. Again, on me, not them. They made their decisions via an unspoken though certain chilling gestures. I say SaWEET. Deadhead the pansies. Good stuff. Thank you, you two. I’m glad to have more energy to spend on the wonderful people below.

So,

So, onto the wild beyond around the rocks in the wonderful rapids of the excellent blogs below. And, this week, WOOT WOOT, I’m treating the music section differently. You’ll see when you get there. Enjoy the Serendipity Itineraries you choose to venture to from the

Serendipity Itinerary Sites

Laleh Chini ~ A Voice From Iran. Check and inspect your expectations at the door. The storytelling, short stories, fables, and folk tales will… well, you’ll see. I just received her book last week and am looking forward to posting a review in the near future. I’m still adjusting to being this busy again, and I’m not going to rush out a review of Laleh’s wonderful work. I’m currently immersed in reading Climbing Over Grit, and without spoilers I can indefatigably express… YES!!!! Review coming soon. SO looking forward to dialing into those words.

And, I’m honored Ian is using my Tarot in the Land of Mystereum deck and 192-page companion book as a creative writing prompter.

cocinaitaly ~ Elganspo, comida italiana. Hungry? Hungry for edible beauty, aesthetic eats? Exquisite is a word. Edibly exquisite is two words. Grab a friend, and go experience this. What will your words be afterwards?

Benebell Wen ~ author + reader. Such a wonderful discipline of the ritual in Benebelle’s actioanable and exploratory process of deck creation of her 3rd edition of SKT. Check out Benebelle’s site. She is an engaged and informed artist fully immersed Actively in The Work and also in the not-knowing, and building value when she emerges her creations.

Joanne Sprott ~ Cosmic Whispers. Let’s Walk the Spiral Path Together. Poetry, depthful thought, and generally all things Joanne = things that matter and have substance and are important and/or are simply interesting.

Learn Tarot: Naima Healer ~ Self-Healing through the Present Moment. Wonderful work with a just as wonderful Hoo Doo deck. Naima has just started out blogging, and I firmly feel she started out on just the right foot. Sensitive, sensible with wit and wisdom not disconnected from lineage. She may have just started blogging, though she’s no novice Reader.

Bonnie Cehovet ~ Flash Fiction. Author. Tarot. Consummate Reviewer. Want a solid story? Bonnie’ll get your there. Bonnie has a way about only working with things she resonates with.

Croque-Melpomene ~ Author of Within Paravent Walls. Pentalingual Idealist. Writer of psycho-corporeal Poetry. Creator of Croque-Melpomene & Les Femmes de la Décadence. Chthonic Numinosity, depth with no fear of addressing behemoth-level emotional topics through her poetry and evolved wonderment and continual curiosity. She runs deep, and takes the proper gear to do so… herself. I see a chthonic numinosity in her poetry that is akin to night and day stained glass. Well worth the visit. Powerful. Intense. Heartfelt. I advise to bring tissues for all the right reasons.

Saania2086 ~ Philosophy is all about being curious, asking basic questions. And it can be fun! If P, then Q. If you want good sense, then go here to see what dynamic mind dish is being served up today.

This is such a cool creation about the larger creation we live our own orbits within.

Helix and DNA strands anyone? There’s such a wonderful Who let the dogs out? quality to this gif. One of my personal faves.

Solar System & DNA

& This Week’s SI Music & Video

This week… This week I am going to do the Music Section differently. Unless I want Silence, music is always on. And, living in the city in Philadelphia rather than on 50 acres outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico 5 years ago before here… music is also typically on ti filter out the noise pollution of the car alarms and bs city trash noise.

And, I HAVE DISCOVERED THE SHUFFLE feature on my Sonos sound system When I upgraded several weeks ago. WOW! YES! And, that’s what’s driving how this week’s Music Section is different. I set it up this week more as an extended Bibliography of the awesome-sauce that has been permeating the liquid of the spaces in my home. I’m getting to know my SOnos better, and this week, I think it must have recently broken up with Alexa or something. I like all the music, and just wrote it down at times this week while it was playing, though there is kinda a baby baby take me back mix tape vibe going on. Lol. I put a box of tissues near it so it can keep cranking out the tunes.

I have ONE video from my favorite soundtrack of all time, Peter Gabriels’s Last Temptation of Christ. Such thickly lush and viscous mood music. Jut fills the room with just what I need. Nothing religious or secular about it. It simply expresses, in spades and beautiful forgetfulness, an immersion in the moment in the power of Peter Gabriel’s clarity of vision in voice. I remember all the controversy in Wichita Falls, Texas when it came out. People picketing the theatres, You’re all going to Hell, and all that mumbo jumbo with no gumbo. I remember afterwards feeling it was visually intense, though I was responding more to the soundtrack than the film.

I had gone to a matinee in the afternoon, and I remember walking out of the theater right afterwards and making a bee-line to the record store. None on the shelves, labeled, though empty. I went to the counter to order it, and, Oh, we have them. Just with all that Bible Belt Baptist bullshit going on out there, I’d rather they be allowed to go to church instead of the popo taking them to jail because they either shoplifted it to listen in secret or to destroy them. Either way there I lose. How many do you want? Big smile over here on this side of the counter. What a great question. Hadn’t even though about more than 1. Now that you mention it, I’ll stick to theme. 3, please. The soundtrack opens up with The Feeling Begins, and oh what a feeling this soundtrack will fill your spaces with wherever you are. It resonates with me deeply much like one of my fave quotes from David Bowie:

Heaven and Religion are for people who do not want to go to Hell. Spirituality is for those of us who have already been there.

~ David Bowie

So, Cherry Pick

So, cherry pick my Sonos Shuffle Library from this week listed below While my Sonos continues its healing journey. ;). I think there is a download playlist feature if I can find it. Next week, it just might be more… uh hem… complete. Like this isn’t plenty, though. I hope you find some soundtrack music below for your SI above. Or, of course bring your own. You might already be packin’. My Sonos has been filling the spaces with musical SI all week long. My musical tastes run from heavy metal to heavy meaning, so shuffle travels far and expansively wide… and more than oftentimes Is seamless segue synchromeshed engine voice in the ears informing the motions of speed-shifting high up in the tach with no clutch and ALL engagement. I just love me some torque.

May you fill your spaces with the good stuff Your way. Plenty to choose from this week. Maybe I’ll introduce him to Siri. Well, maybe not. Then, I’d never get any sleep. They might tell me to leave as they already HAVE a room.

The Adaptable & Our Thrival

[[[Blog By Comment Technique]]]

[[[You’re moved to full-on and intensely respond to a blog post. You do so… hey, it might not resonate with them, and they might moderate it out — and on that, puhLEEZ don’t take that personally… it’s their blog and that means Their Blog, Their Way, and reasons are wholly unreasonable in that regard. It may be that some of your best writing Or amplifications of message and/or ideas can come from this because you are out there flowing in a response like a conversation. Though, give yourself credit for believing in the substance of what you wrote as THAT is YOUR voice. Do you resonate with it? It also may be some of your worse writing if it was reactionary rather than responsive. So, before you hit Send to post on someone else’s blog when you have an impassioned or simply thoughtful comment, Select All in your comment before you hit Send. Copy it to your clipboard. Send, to post it there. Head back to your blog. New Post. Paste. Save as a Draft blog. Sometimes they don’t even need to be re-tooled — depends on your proof-reading when commenting… and AutoCorrect as I certainly know it often writes things for me that I didn’t Nintendo. It’s a great way to put your money where your mouth is in regards to valuing what you say. That is to say, I don’t write anything on someone else’s blog that I wouldn’t cotton to being on my own, And, 10 to 1, I bet it will be a wonderful heartbeat embracing your blog theme… or not, though it’s a fun technique to work with either way. And, sometimes, you come back to the draft and… WHOAH, does it go places. Or, lol, DELETE. Perspective is a funny thing, huh? In closing on the Blog By Comment Technique, it’s not only about your respect and value of your own voice, it’s also about that continual process of dialing into your own clarity of voice, and heck, if helps you engage and connect, so much the better. Enjoy the Blog By Comment Technique]]]

This post was inspired by a Blog post from The Wild Coach’s blog. It’s pretty much my comment, though edited to reflect the paragraph breaks that seemed to be lost when posting. It happens. So be it. No biggee. And, they may come back later. WordPress seems to do that sometimes… like your post naturalized in the blog garden, and then, OH, you had paragraph breaks. Here ya go. Lol. It’s a process. It’s certainly a process. Enjoy my Blog By Comment Technique. I hope you give it a go. And, by all means visit The Wild Coach.

Yes! And, I call it Covid Blessings. Not to dismiss the pain and suffering, though 2 weeks before the 3/19 shutdown I consciously made the move to emerge out of a self-imposed 5-year public radio silence and back into my alchemy of Tarot and Astrology and Poetry and Architecture and Painting and Psychology and re-opened my blog.

2 weeks later Moses basically dropped his hands and the Red Sea came crashing down on everyone, me included. Though, I stood there. I stood there Unmoved as the Rock of Gibraltar with “Trees with strong roots laugh at storms” as if I was protecting family with my fledgling re-opening in writing and NOPE, not stopping this. There’s no dafuq?? going on here, just Nope. Nope, not on the list. At least not mine. THIS is what I’m doing.

The evolution did not come from only the strong survive. In these times the superficially strong die on the vine and are washed away like chaff from wheat in the wind. And, people start to realize what they actually value and see through bs more. So, where does that leave us? It leaves us with potential Sovereignty, each of us. Perspective and experience in experience rather than poor me.

No more head chatter of nipping the poison tweet-teet of the news feed. No more smoking the narcotic of hope of just working harder. It became simple.

It’s a time in between, an interstice. To nip the Goo Goo Dolls song title, Here Is Gone, that here is gone. No new normal to come. No waiting procrastinating for it.

And, in these times A different quality of strength that may have been nascent at a large scale in each of us has the potential to emerge.

The Adaptable ones. Those who are adaptable AND actionable about it and doing what they value…. the adaptable don’t survive. We thrive.

Best to your thrival in your adaptations to make your world the best place it can be with a perspective of what your workability in any situation is. Best to YOUR Natural nature being the cornerstone you brace against for Your Life, Your Way.

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

A Horoscope Reading Suggestion

Here’s

Here’s a suggestion on how to get more in the big picture out of horoscopes from Astrologers you subscribe to. Not the ones from the newspaper. Those often feel like they are written by Clairfraudulents. Do you Wake up tired in the morning. OMG I have this. Write this down! Or, something like: I see pain in your past. All right, wait. Hmmm, let me see… DUH! Please don’t respond to those vague and Angler Fish parlor tricks. Every field has frauds. I just see them as rocks in the river, and flow riggghhhhhtttt around them untouched. Oooooohhhh SHINY. GULP!

The Angler Fish. They are often up to 6’ long? Hmmm… the size of some people I know…looks just like ‘em, too, once you see it. One of those things you can’t unsee. ANd hey, they have their pain most likely causing that as well. Hopefully they’ll dial in to wrest it free. Until then, though, NOPE, not on the list. NEXT.

Or, read the horoscopes in The Onion If you simply need some silly to cut some daily bs that’s gone down. Breathing deeply is certainly not the only way to relieve stress. My fave Horoscope in The Onion was from back in 2006-2007 for Sag:

Dear Sag, If your are reading this, we really apologize for predicting your untimely death last week. Though, if you are reading this without arms, we have to say we told you so.

Horoscope Reading Suggestion

In regards to horoscopes, I read my Sun Sign of course, Sag. And further, I read my Moon’s sign, Cap for my Moon~ASC conjunction per a rockin’ suggestion years back from none other than my Mom. I also then read Virgo for my 8th House Pluto~Pallas~Uranus conjunction there. Then, Libra for my 7th House Jupiter, and Scorpio for my 10th House Mercury~Neptune conjunction. Funny, I don’t read Pisces for my 2nd House Chiron, or Aries for my 2nd House Saturn~Moira conjunction. Further, hmmm, I also don’t read Libra for my 9th House Juno~Venus conjunction in tandem with the 3rd Sacred Sister also in Libra, Ceres, their near neighbor in the 8th House. Hmmm. Hmmmmms… Glad I’m writing this post as I just noticed those GLARING omissions. Bet there’s some of the good stuff there.

And, Cycle Through

Afterwards, which group or groups or groupings resonate with you that day. I feel our magnetism is alive, and we are naturally geared to dial in to different parts of our Natal Chart daily, weekly, monthly, annually, etc. Based on the orbs of influence of the relationships of the orbits of the celestial bodies — planets, asteroids, etc.

I Find

I find this technique gets me out of the Oh, that Sun sign horoscope fell flat. Bet it didn’t. Bet it was asleep or just has delegated by tooting its own horn to start the band, is just listening and groovin’ and kelping to the rhythms of the band as they play their tune from their section of the your Natal Charity stage and strike the chords that resonate with you from your Chart.

Also, Look At

Also, look at your Astro transits, transiting planets and asteroids. They often strike chords around your Chart that resonate. When you know to look for them, maybe They can inform how you dial through your Chart to know in advance the most resonant horoscope to read that day. Or, if one upsets you, by all means dial into that one. Bet there’s a gift waiting to burst out of its seed into your Soul Gardener’s tools.

Asteroid suggestions: Chiron, Moira, Juno, Ceres (with Venus you’ll have 3 Scared Sisters in your court), Pallas-Athena, Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith, Astraea. There are plenty more. Like with cooking. Use the herbs and spices differently for each meal. Cherry-pick which asteroids you’d like to hear from on a given day. I leave them all there, just dial in to focus on the message that most resonates… or, the one that upsets me or makes me uncomfortable. In that case I stop, drop, and roll right up to that one and face in to tack into the wind of its voice. That’s a no-brainer for me. That one’s digging shit out, and once the dirt stops flying my way… Oooooooohhhhh SHINY! Oh, right. Be mindful… and heartful.

Happy

Happy post-Bastille day yesterday. May this horoscope reading suggestion help you tip your cup to spill some beauty and tip your hourglass up to freshen your flow and clean out any places of stagnation for increased Self-awareness.

Our Cups

Our cups are continually being filled with beauty. There’s an art to learning techniques to tip your cup and spill beauty. Beauty, the mess you don’t need to clean up. And, in regards to things that are stuck, what techniques and habits can you develop to tip your hourglass back up? I mean, to get your flow to flow through stagnant places and wash them out. Here’s a poem I wrote in 1993 for Bastille Day that may lend an example to how you can tip the scales of your Natal Chart in your favor To get it flowing more and read the most resonant horoscope each day rather than only your Sun sign. Actually, I always read my Sun sign, and then whichever other group is orbiting closest in resonance with my feel and sense that day.

And remember, your Sun is always shining behind every dark cloud. That may be where those silver linings are coming from.

Stop

Who

is to free the prisoners

when sand sleeps in the eternity of the tilted hourglass?
