Visceral Path ~ Sacral to Crown Walk Through the Feel of Sacred Architecture

Visceral Path ~ Sacral to Crown Walk Through the Feel of Sacred Architecture

I Walk

I walk the path of knowing 
living in the not-knowing, 
death as the mother of memory,
the nourisher of dreams 
in this confluence of all things 
that is the perpetual present. 

Comfortable with the not-knowing, 
forgetting is for getting. 
It makes more room for the god stuff to breath. 
That often magnetizes 
more good stuff 
for more intense breath,
for more intense forgetting,
for getting
the good.

Is health simply integrated armor?

Are We

Are we all the unmoved mover? 
Do we all move like entering Mont St. Michel? 
The scheduling danger of coming and going. 
Too attached to your plans? 
Cool, I suggest to not attend the visceral, 
experiential feast that is Mont St. Michel then. 
Though, if fluid, 
and not going with the flow,
as only dead fish go with the flow, 
do you tack the sailboat of your life 
with fluid fluency
into the wind? 
Back and forth navigating forward into the intensity,
do you move from depth
to heights
to rise up and open yourself 
like a corporeal cloister?

Once Said

Christian Norbert-Schulz once said:

How does a building stand on the ground?

How does it extend to the sides?

How does it open and close?

How does it reach for and zipper with the sky?

To which I will add,

How does it feel?

What Are the Consequences Of Feeling?

Well, ice crystal recording devices can be a cool gig.

Look What Can Happen

To the top of your car
when you come home 
in butt-ass cold one winter evening
as the sun sets
after a 30-minute drive 
after giving a Tarot reading 
that fills you with, 
This is why I do this,
and discover THIS the next morning.

I Draw, and in So Doing

I draw
And, in so doing
I abduce,
I draw out...

Yesterday evening.
I drew The Emperor,
and said nothing.


That spoke volumes to me, 
That I said nothing. 
Just sat,
feeling Silence.

That spoke volumes to me,
the Architect.
Too attached to form.
Too attached to results.
Too drawn.
Too specified.
Too dimensioned.

Place established,
I now care less about dimensioning beauty.

It’s time to over-listen,
and in whole-body listening,
underspeak,
as I feel into my Silence,
as I listen to others.

I Currently Have 6 Favorite Quotes

I have six favorite quotes in no particular order. 
They all orbit together 
in my Idea Solar System 
as they do at any given time. 

Currently, 
they are all Rx, 
stationed, 
powerful as they sit and emanate.
Retrograde, Rx, is a stationing, 
a sitting planted strongly, 
the intensity
of the focused power
of patience.

Mercury Rx?
Downshift.
Re-sync to the new tach level.
Dial in
to dive in differently.

Mercury Rx in Mars Rx?
We might need a new transmission soon.
Till then,
shift n corner differently as only you can.
Your Life, Your Way.

It’s not no better time than the present.
The present is perpetual.

What am I,
What are You,
going to do with all this future in front of us,
Now?

Death may be the Mother of memory,
and Nourisher of dreams,
though
Now
is always the time.

I chose The Tower.
I drew The Tower.
I had already created and made The Tower.

Though, now?
World-altering?
Nope.
World ALTARing.

Sometimes,
when it appears that everything fell apart,
did everything simply fall in place
for the first time
outside the bounds
of your expectations?

Inspect your expectations.
Has your life simply come together
for the first time
in a way you are full-on unfamiliar with?

It can certainly induce a startle.
Fortunately, I run towards gunfire.
I tack the sailboat into the wind
square my shoulders to face
the time
in the space
of this place
now unconcerned with form and results

with Self. 

Be yourself. I hear everyone else is already taken.

~ Oscar Wilde

I Currently Have

I currently have six favorite quotes:

Symbolic representation and imagistic writing are the pure hieratic forms of esoteric expression. Through symbolism, and through it alone can we read the thought of the Ancients. It is only through the symbolical that we will be able to coordinate the known elements of this great civilization and that the writing may take on its true meaning.   

 ~ R.A. Schwaller de Lubicz — The Temple In Manp. 19

There came a time when the risk of remaining tight in the Bud was more painful than the risk of blossoming.

~ Anais Nin

Trees with strong roots laugh at storms.

~ Malay Proverb

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Prverb

Forgetting is for getting. It makes more room for the good stuff to breathe.

~ Jordan Hoggard riffing off of to evolve the Imagination Primer from Tarot in the Land of Mystereum.

If you don’t read the paper each morning, you’re uninformed. If you do, you’re misinformed.

~ Mark Twain

Cloister of Self ~ The Temple In Man

The Temple of Luxor at Karnak

How Do You Listen

When Silence Presents

The Oculus of Itself To Self,

To You?*

* Note: Jung, Nietzsche, and the Wm pair, Blake and James, were napping at the time of this post. Well, that’s what I was told When they could not be reached for comment to provide a quote. I’m pretty sure they played hooky and are hanging out with Julia Morgan and Harriet Tubman and Cleopatra and Sophia. Pallas-Athena and Moira and Astraea will take your cover at the door.

From deep and chthonic Sacral places Kundalini-ing up through numinous Crown

How Do You Listen

When Silence Presents

an Oculus of Connection?*

Tip Your Server? Cool, Buy Me a Coffee. Thanks Much.

Kintsukuroi Your Heart Progression. Stage III Complete + Notes (Public Version)

Kintsukuroi Your Heart Progression. Stage III Complete + Notes (Public Version)

Spread Complete With Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4

I Took

I took this spread in stages. Lately, I’ve had more Major Arcana showing up than not. That indicates an important time in my life — please steal that idea into your readings as a free reading tip..

So, I approached this reading as a Turbo Reading, though took the time to allow it to steep. Call it a Hybrid in respect of the way it’s particular identity presents.

One, were more Majors going to continue to show up? And two, if they were I was going to be DAYum sure to receive the gift of the message as a long-form intensity to recalibrate, and not a BAM of a one-hit wonder.

Over the Summer and this Fall I’ve had a grouping of Major honors come together, Oscars of sorts in the Divination Community. That in itself provides a quality of reinforcement to enhance and strengthen the way I receive my readings when I read for myself. It is an important time in general. It is an important time, personally. I both respect that and steep in it. And. I also do not sit idly for it to pass me by. Surf your celestial groove, BayBEE.

In Regards to the Public Version

In regards to the Public Version of this spread’s notes. I will not go into goals and action items and implementation procedures for the personal policy I write for myself. I am leaving it at the level of the initial Turbo Reading with the intent to share. Some may be able to mine it for gold about our current time. My stuff is great for me, though might not resonate in any way in general with another except to induce interference patterns. So, I kept the notes to the scale of the initial Turbo Reading.

Co-Creation on the Fly

So, the Quaternal Journey of the Emperor spread, a co-creation on the fly in an Albuquerque Tarot Tribe Meetup Session With several of us, was a collaboration that I felt to participate in personally By utilizing it for this reading. Hey! Fresh bread is excellent for a set-you-up-for-success sandwich — add the Dill Havarti to the Roast Beef with Brown Mustard, etc.

The below Turbo Reading notes come from the discretion of Client Privilege. I am my own client here, so this is even more than I would convey from client readings, as those are private without question. They are theirs. Though, this is mine. In this important time in my life and in the word I feel to share this spread result so that others in the DIvination Community or Community at large might benefit.

To Dial In To Life Kintsukuroi Style

The Quaternal Journey of the Emperor Spread sets up a 4-card reading. So, last week I sat down to dial into it just in advance of and into the Full Moon*. (See “ clarification below). I drew the 1st 4 cards. I steeped in them. I usually draw a clarifier card for Majors to activate them more as the Majors are Archetypes, and I draw until I get something other than a Major to dial into actionable gigs to generate daily/weeklymonthly/annual action items dependent on the Minor’s element.

Pentacles — Annual
Cups — Monthly
Wands — Weekly
Swords — Daily

On a recent blog it came to me that, Well, OK! As I continued to draw Majors to clarify a Major. You EverReady Bunny Majors! This can only go on for another 19 more cards as I already have 3 Majors in this reading, 2 even to clarify the last Major. Excellent smile born of that. That spread is Available here. I love the experience of that spread, am still working with it in tandem with this one.

Back to the Point

Back to the point of this 3rd in this series to publicly track through a spread so people can watch something be built.

Set the Concrete Foundation Forms Over a Week-ish

10/1/20 I drew the 4 cards. Major in the spread, and another Major as the final card. I decide to let that steep. Give it the proper reverence in Silence and pause and directly work with it.

10/4 I draw 2 cards to clarify the last Major of the initial draw. I also let that steep. I give those the proper reverence in Silence and pause and directly work with them to steep and incorporate and outline my actionable gigs from them. This feels like making a soufflé. SO much prep work for the final 45 minutes in the oven. Good stuff. Isn’t the prep work almost the more important stuff? I mean, seriously. Aren’t you then dealing with your whole life up to that point? I don’t know about you, though I certainly work that way. The present is the tip of the iceberg, and I’m always surprised that metaphor doesn’t melt with the rockin’ forces in play.

10/6 I draw the card for the QueenS and how he Queens support The Empress and the way those Empress energies actively burst forth into my life.

And, Here is the Foundation. Concrete Poured into the Forms, and It Now Begins To Cure

That curing is a 28-day process, Many things occur between now and then, though here is the initial formwork that received the concrete pour of my card draws. The goals and implementation procedures I will actionably craft to set myself up for success with this are private, my own. Though again, I feel this particular reading provides a great, experiential teaching tool and was simply too experiential for others not to benefit. So, there;s the rationale for the share of a personal reading.

How Do You Craft the Chapter Headings of Card Indications When You Turbo Read This Spread?

  • Oh, the * above in regards to the Moon Above. It is technically not a Blue Moon with two Full Moons in this month. To clarify, a Blue Moon is when there are four Full Moons in a 3-month season. That necessarily indicates a month will have two, though as well there may be a month without one. Technically, a Blue Moon is the 4th Full Moon in any given 3-month Season cycle. I love that I cross-checked mySELF into the Blue Line wall last week when I discovered I’d had that wrong for over 2 decades. Hail clarity of vision. Always complete, never finished. Cool to learn something!

How Do You Craft the Chapter Headings of Card Indications When You Turbo Read This 4-Card Spread That Ended Up With 10 Cards?

Thank You to the Full Harvest Moon in Aries, and to Mars Rx Planted, Emanating

Quinta Regeliera, Portugal. Tarot Initiation Well. The Inverted Tower. World-Altaring rather than World-Altering.

…which will be Direct In Aries (Full Harvest Moon Officially full at 5:05p EST on 10/1, not Mars Rx) until it journeys into the Psychic Synapse dark passage Void Of Course at 1:47a on 10/3 to emerge at 11:12a on 10/3 in Taurus. Thank You Harvest Moon. May Golden Splendor flow up from within to navigate fissures of Self from within as Kintsukuroi of Self connections rather than scars. May the celebration of the embrace of the experience be as Iolite to always navigate day or night directly.

A(wo)*men

*Lilith got a bad wrap. Men spread seed. Lilith spread life. Nothing to fault her in the negative there. She may not have talked such a good game uttering the ineffable, but DAYum can she box! Like Kali braced against the ultimate calm cornerstone of Shiva so her actions don’t slip one bit when she moves. To brace against her cornerstone of Shiva, she engages her full power without diminishment. Simply high intensity when uncut identity presents?

It Felt Important to Note Today That

To my knowledge there are ZERO laws regulating mens’ bodies. I firmly feel that is the same number that should regulate womens’ bodies. Temple in Man, Temple in Woman… Both-And whole, Temple in (Wo)Man, Temple Of (Wo)Man. Temple of Self. Here’s to solid and fluid balance of the Sacred Feminine and the Sacred Masculine for wholeness for each of us. Hey, like Oscar Wilde was fond of saying, Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

Daily Arrangements ~ The Art of the Bouquet

Daily Arrangements ~ The Art of the Bouquet

Deep Digs for Treasure? Sometimes Treasure Hides In Plain Sight

Digging deep in my files looking for something else, I find a week’s work from 2014. Daily flower arrangements from the land on a semi-arid mesa in New Mexico 20+ miles outside of Santa Fe. Someone made the comment, There is only brown and green and rocks and briars here. My eyebrows went up as I, Hold on. I’ll be back in 30 minutes to an hour. Please take…. hmmm, THAT vertical glass vase, and fill it up to half-ish with water. And, hiking boots zipped back up, I went out on the 50 acres, through the flats, down into the 2 Arroyos, up the steeps 600 feet or so higher, as I eyeball, discern, pick, compose, surrender to goallessness simply enjoying the walk with purpose.

45 minutes to an hour later I walk back up off the land onto the deck and to the back door with my ingredients behind my back. I poke my head in the door. Where’s the vase? They point to it. Ok, all y’all out the front door. Scat. I’ll call you back in in a few. As I park my bounty on the butcher block Kitchen island, I feel a cascade of ablution tingles wash through me. Nice way to start art I’d say. I proceed to pick and push and snip and place and smile and NAH NO WAY interrogating tensions and relish and cherish this assemblage moment. Then, my head bounces back just like when I finish a painting. It’s a moment easily missed, and I you miss it, all you say later after you effed it up is, Ahhh, you had to touch it, didn’t you. Just haddddd to touch it.

A heart in love with beauty never grows old.

~ Turkish Proverb

But, That Day, At That TIme

But, that Day, at that time, I listened, felt the visceral CLICK like the last tumbler of a safe as it makes the invitation to welcome sound… click. I step back. I turn it around. It doesn’t have a Janus-face front and back. Doesn’t have a good side. Works in all 360 degrees, simply has a different gesture, different identity, different tenor of perspective in the chords the bouquet strikes to resonate. And, I place it off center on the dining table, say, Yup, the center is not necessarily in the middle. The center is simply where you place your energy in focus.

A Little Loki-Impish Happy

Laughing, a little Loki-impish happy, I walk over and knock on the front door from the inside. Anyone home out there? They open the door a little quizzled. Why are you knocking from the inside. Anyone home out here? What are you up to? Cupped hands raised up, Oh. I thought you guys might want to be liberated from your freedom out there on the front porch. Come on in from that home to this one and follow your wonderment. See what you find on your own.

Empathic Silences

One back-side-step over, I held the door open as one by one, we all experienced one of these together. Now, I honestly cannot remember which was the 1st. It was a week of circles that found themselves alive, those tidy points in sync where the rooster tail of the Architect’s compass lead swings around to Ouroburos tail-bite lap over its start point with a seamless segue in the fluid fluency of a caterpillar of an arc as it transforms into its unsquared circle butterfly identity re-incarnated as more infinite beauty in potentiality accessible only by action and silences, Empathic Silences.

This was the day

This was the day I discovered wild bean flowers that grew along the banks of the Arroyos. I had not seen them before. Maybe like O’keefe would say of my beans discovery, You look, though do you see? That day I did. Their seeds, several stuck between rocks that had not re-touched the earth at the ground, dark and hard and shiny purple-black. Their flowers, whites and pinks and deeper fucsha’d pinks all from the same tribe, each one’s petal gesture receptive like the cup of a hand.

From : To : ~ : To : From

From hard to soft. From dark to light, and from all places within and around and in between, the 4th-character voice of the A U M, the 4th character Empathic Silences of all the spaces within and between and all around. The spaces between the notes, the Psychic Synapses of seamless segues in the fluid fluency of heartfelt connection and laughter that day were open. I now have an experiential awareness of the origin of the magic beans story, another in the community that sing clear the guts of the process where dark lead transforms through action into Psychic Gold, a place where glasses are never half full or half empty. Everyone’s is refillable. Everyone refills to the brim so they can spill a little beauty here and there.

Beauty is the spill you don’t have to clean up.

How can you spill a little beauty today?

Laughter is the shortest distance between people.

Sacred. Numbers All Are

Inspired by Christina Schmidt, MA’s blog post:

I love that Wyrd brought up the triplets, especially here with Christina being a Four kinda person. Quarter note triplets in 2 versus 3 is a pretty beautiful cadence.

I Especially Love

I especially love that you brought it up, as the architect in me nodded at the 3 when I first saw this series, though it was as engaging as a prayerful breath, as I moved right along. I nodded as 3 is the 1st number associated with beauty. Once 3’s, then 2 is also beautiful as a paring or coupling, and 1 as identity.

3’s. III The Empress. XII The Hanged Man. The Hanged Man is The Emperor’s son.

There’s a potential seed for rockin’ conversation about numbers and numerology here for 1 through 9 + 0. (As a concept rather than a number). I feel 9 is the most dynamic number, as it folds over itself, the only number to do so, and it is formed of 3-squared. 3 is then a seed of 9, dosing itself with more of itself as 3-square to POOF, become 9. 9 folds over itself? What are you saying, Jordan?

Let’s Look

Look at the 9’s multiplication table:
09:18:27:36:45::54:63:72:81:90. It’s a mirror, like 10 fingers sharing a pinky to fold over together in a namaste or prayer gesture: Also, the color for 9, the Nin kanji in Ninjitsu Shadow meditation, indicative of the Tao, is White. Community of all colors in harmony, the dynamic place to go of the One Point, or Hara… and then back to yellow at 1 with Chu Kanji.

  • Ace of Cups

The Four

And, the Four? Oh yeah from what I see that fits you, Christina. Four is the first number of place, of empire, of foundation, IV Emperor in Tarot, Four Corners, Four Winds. Foreplay to pun it. XIII Death as 13 is also a 4. Are your Tarot Birth Cards Death~Emperor? Or, High Priestess~Justice?

I resonate that the expressions of the meanings of numbers go on and on like pi… 3.1415629 etc etc etc. Pi. One of the EverReady Bunnies of numbers. 22/7 (or, is there another expression of Pi? … hmmmm)

Rather than going into my 1 through 9 as I’ve written about it almost too extensively to yet be concise, to have been concise, and somehow now I am again in the place of the repeating number ellipses NOT being able to be concise about numbers…

I’ll simply share these 4 videos as an Ode to Christina’s 4-Ness-ness. 3 videos mine + 1 Cristobal Vila… which I have to say is MO’ BETTA than mine. Not a judgment or personal slam on me from me. He simply WENT places with it that I full-on resonate with, full-on EXPRESSED it without words.

3’s: 0m 59sec

4’s: 0m 59sec

9’s: 1m 51sec

The Nature of Numbers: 3m 43sec

Thanks much for Visiting!

Great Questions Enamor Me

The Hierophant

Yessssssss, the Hierophant on a bad day is often considered to be the stubborn, unbending Traditionalist. Though, I don’t feel him/her that way. Those people aren’t Hierophants. They are patriarchal and afraid and confused with an inner fabric of unresolved Trauma issues where they are consequently dyslexically obsequious sycophants, regardless of gender — binary, mixed, or otherwise. Maybe even Solipsistic Transcendentalists. Though, I’ll belay the last for another day.

I’ll play my naive card for a second to back up on my previous statement and not be so mean as the song goes. I feel everyone is good at something. Everyone. And, those people? Yes, they are good at something, too, and deserve my support for their goodness. So, I support their goodness. They are certainly good at something. They are really good at being dicks.

You See

I feel that it’s important to be genuinely comfortable and confident with one’s intensities. The natural ones. The ones developed over a lifetime. They’re attuned because they are integrated, they are ablution as they in their highest form come from total immersion over time.

In the animal kingdom, preying on the old and the weak and the young = breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner. When people do that? It’s without question weak and mean and cruel.

Have we seen that recently in the literal and weak bully pulpit of recent sex crimes exposed in the religious (uh hem… alleged Hierophantic) community?

And, with racism. Lewis Hamilton, who is fast approaching being one of the most accomplished F1 drivers in history, put it well when asked if he felt racism was getting worse. ’No, Will Smith expressed it best. Racism isn;t getting worse. Now, it’s simply being filmed.

Did you notice? I mentioned nothing about Lewis’ race? Why would I? Yes, he’s black. Dafuq a bunch o’ that. He’s simply one of THE greats in F1… EVER! ‘Nuff said. Why in the hell would that even need that adjective portion to expressing him? Have you seen him drive?! Ayrton Senna is Most likely up there in Heaven for the weather and in Hell for the company BEAMING with the likes of Mark Twain and Oscar Wilde and Carl Jung And Julia Morgan cheering Hamilton on… I gather.

I hear they’re serving red today. Carmenere and Malbec…

Maybe some Priorat, too. Quite an international crowd.

And, George Floyd? That was a modern day lynching. Un… Un-dafuqin-acceptable! Period. Something must be done. What are we going to do with all this future we have With things like this… NOW!

Who’s Julia Morgan? Well, let’s just say she expressed, when asked why she wasn’t as famously quotable as often as Frank Lloyd Wright, her contemporary… Because I have too much work to do, and he needs the work. That’s him running out (of work) and marketing when he’s broke. Ever heard of Casa Grande, the William Randolph Hearst mansion? Yes, she was the Architect. Julia out-enamors me more than FLW.

Cool, I FINALLY

Got to the Primary Point of This Blog

The Hierophant Is Instead

I feel the Hierophant to be made of the spiritual crown that sits on the Inner Throne of heartfelt perspectives born of integrated experience. Otherwise, known as wise, or The Sophia Principle.

The Hierophant is a Song That opens you up to be inspired by how they intensely and almost instantly untangle you from your own inner briar patches. We all have them, I have them.

We certainly cannot hire that man. Not a chance.

Why Mr. Churchill?

Because he said he has no vices. Either, he’s a liar in denial, or he really is THAT boring. Either way that’s a bust. ~ Winston Churchill

quote… please kneel to the Google Oracle and search. You might find some other gems.. 🙂

The Hierophant is/are… Songs of Experience.

I Feel

I used to be an Architect, maybe I still am. I simply build differently now that I found myself. And yes, May 5th, 2008 put a cannonball through my stomach to hardscrabble scratch and claw until in 2014 when I closed my own firm after 12 years… well… kinda.

I stood up and said, Enough! The snake his skin shedded, the snake his skin not missed… like chaff, from the wheat, in the wind. I wisened. I turned. I shed. I am thankful for the moment I did. Restart? Already did. Differently. Questions are important. Ask me again on that tomorrow so to speak.

And, Here’s the Real F1 Drive of This Post

Sanctuary Questions I

I feel there are sanctuaries built in great questions, sacred places of inner reverence that are not egomaniacal, that provide the opportunity for the ablution of immersion. And, I feel that helps self-center Self where you can HEAR your own voice and resonance and personal and resonant chords WHEN they are struck. Sometimes, even wise in time IN the moment.

Sanctuary Questions II

Questions, like two of my own…

Are you strong enough and comfortable enough in your intensities to be comfortably gentle? You know, like a tiger with a tiger? Effin comfy, and MAJESTIC Presence As Architecture there.

What sacred cornerstone in your life do you brace against?

I Would Like to Thank

I Would like to thank Laleh Chini for this next question That INSPIRED this post In the first place. Such a rockin’ question!

This Question on…

Laleh Chini’s Site

The Call of the Question Is

What is better than everything?

My Response Was…

I feel the fluid fluency of ImaginAction is more than everything, actionable imagination in ImaginAction as it takes death as the mother of memory to flow in and nourish future dreams in the Soul Garden of the perpetual present.

You see, I literally lost my creativity, and my imagination shortly followed suit 4 years ago. Both desiccated, died on the vine to slip back into some infinitely far place inside. It’s intense 3-year long trauma that did that. It’s is a common occurrence. PTSD literally scars one over like a psychic burn victim. I came to my senses one day, and left. After I exited the situation, it didn’t sit right with me at all that me, an Architect, Painter, Tarot Reader & Author, Astrologer, Poet, Writer, etc etc was no longer creative, no longer had an imagination or access to it. Problem-solving never left, though in the context of MIA creativity and imagination, that’s just permutations like Tetris, and finite

As I am want to do, I took the long way home so to speak. I discovered Brainspotting therapy, and for 3 years went bi-weekly/monthly. 18 months out from that, now, I’m certainly back, and I consider my creativity and imagination to be even stronger now, as boundaries were also developed so I could inflate to pressurize myself to look just like me.

So, it’s imagination, and ImaginAction to me that is more than everything. Imagination commands my inner and outer infinities with fluid fluency without being vague or nebulous. A bit Neptunian, yes, though not nebulous. 

So, it’s imagination and ImaginAction. They are certainly my “more than everything.”

Sidebar Takeaway to Juice & Amplify That?

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

Death is the mother of memory, nourishes the future in dreams in and through action. Silence and not reacting, is as well an action, a complete sentence in itself.. ~ Jordan Hoggard

After II

Beautifully Enigmatic

…Yes, we are. Well put. When we are not ourselves, when we do not actionably put into place our dreams, there’s a hole in the Universe puzzle where we were supposed to be. No reason to be MIA from oneself in one’s own life. It’s impossible to hide from ourselves anyway as we know where we are. Though, strangely as it were, people ARE able to hide themselves away from themselves. Beautifully En Ig Mat Ic.

I Prefer

I prefer to reveal character and keep my boundaries on a workout regimen to both train people how to treat me, as well as enhance, reinforce, and strengthen them. Them, meaning my own character of identity, and them meaning other people as I feel we enhance and amplify one another as we stretch together experiencing one another’s perspective.

That In

That in itself is simply one tool I use to tune the clarity of my voice and vision through action as one would tune a piano. Not nebulous at all. A little Neptunian boundarylessness, though not vague. And, maybe not even a tool at all as more often than not it’s simply how I operate. Practice 10,000 kicks and cool, though so what? Practice one kick 10,000 times, and the mind forgets as the body remembers. Things focused on and immersed in or with integrate things naturally. That’s why it erodes people over time to stay in negative or toxic environments, regardless of how centered they are. Water conforms to its cup. You get shaped. Shit spatters, and that stuff gets in.

Water Conforms

Water confirms to its cup.

Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in ateapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. ~ Bruce Lee

Be fluid, though don’t blindly go with the flow. Only dead fish go with the flow. Turn upstream to strengthen. Experience the water bringing the food downstream to you.

There Are

There are no dead end roads. When you get to the end of one, what’s the view? What’s the vantage point? What’s the advantage point? Pause. What’s the workability there you would have otherwise never experienced? Can there be any MORE questions in this paragraph?

Experience The Advantage Point before going, hmmmppph. Worth keeping the experience? Cool. New jewel of experience. Not Worth keeping? Just as cool, so don’t. Cut it. Drop it. Dissolve-evaporate-release it fully. No goodbyes, certainly no long goodbyes. Let go like deadheading pansies, and feel your energy no longer spent there further fuel what you do keep. Feel how deadheading keeps things fresh and viscerally vibrant.

As I

As I expressed in the Imagination Primer book portion of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum ( (c) 2011 Jordan Hoggard, published by Schiffer Publications 2011), Forgetting is for getting. It makes more room for the good stuff. There are also no failures. Only OFLEs. OpportunitIes For Learning Experienced. I don’t look for the positive in negative situations. I look for the workability.

As soon as 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

Quoted from The Art of Peace by Morihei Ueshiba, founder of Aikido. Translated by John Stevens, 2007, Shambhala

There is a way of survival which helps and strengthens you; there is a way of destruction, which pushes you into oblivion.

Quoted from The Art of War by Sun Tzu. Translated by Thomas Cleary. 2005, Shambhala

Embrace the creation and destruction and making and Death As the Master Gardener in the unforgivingly interrogating tensions of the creative act where edits are integrated and/or disappeared as effortlessly as chaff, from wheat, in the wind.

Just like Nature’ll kill ya in an instant high above treeline above 14,000 feet on a 14’er, allow YOUR Inner Nature to be as natural. Roll the weather in and out through the world of your creativity As Nature does in the world. No malice. No rage. No happy or sad or glad. 100%, pure, uncut identity. That’s intensity. Take the care of the Alchemist, though. Like 100% cranberry juice is toxic, has to be cut with apple juice or other, so it is with your deep well, your Inner Inhertiances and innate talents you’ve developed into abilities. Do you flow or crash? People conform to the cup and vessel of their world. What shape have you made your world into on the potter’s wheel of your life? How do YOU grow a Lotus out of the mud so to speak?

Quoted from After II right here by Jordan Hoggard. Today, JordanHoggard.com

Heck, Even

Heck, even fear and stress are solid navigation tools when not allowed to be hijacked by anxiety which distorts it into being afraid. DUCK! Yep, glad I listened. Fear can be like radar, like a cone zone on the highway. No need to drive through the cones and off the portion of the bridge that’s out. Well, if you have a flying car… Otherwise, that’s on you.

Perspective

And, Fear

And, FEAR, like the butterflies in the stomach before a speech kind of fear that’s really your body warming you up, your nerves reaching out, your nerves engaged in preparation for activity. Your anxiety will never tell you you are in danger, because anxiety is what will get you in danger in the 1st place. Fear doesn’t step in the pothole twice. The next time, fear will walk you around a different way never to engage that pothole again.

Before the Speech

Before the speech? Your Will will tell you it’s just warming up the car, preparation for activity nerves. Fear, is Radar Love. FEAR. Feeling Energized And Ready yet?
