Healthy Allergies

I Have Two Allergies

Suffering isn’t always required for success if you’re allergic to boredom and challenge yourself. Discipline of the ritual, and Butt In The Chair is most likely required though — The BITCh Method. Butt In The Chair… or, wherever you create.

What does not kill us makes us stronger. ~ My Friend Fred

Sometimes. And ALSO, sometimes what does not kill us, doesn’t kill us because it likes us very much. When you don’t waste trouble, you don’t let your emotions dictate how you feel. You allow them to guide how you feel, though not get dissolved by them. When you don’t waste trouble… it’s not the catastrophe that’s the problem. It’s how you take it, what you make of it, your perspective on it. Perspective is key. How can you hold your mouth differently? Like an interrogative dog? How can you hold your mouth differently. It, literally, gives you a different perspective.


Adversity is like weather coming in, that has arrived, on the mountain, above treeline, in late October, on a 14er, at 14,263 feet above sea level, on Mt Democrat, the sun dropping behind the bowl, temp from 60s to 23 to 19, and you got stuck not getting off the mountain at 2p before the storms come in, and you’re day-dressed, shorts and a T-shirt. Nature’ll kill ya, no matter your experience level. Nature’ll kill ya. That I’m writing this? I kept going. Keep going…


Being aware of experience, though, means we’re still alive, and so does pain. You don’t need to suffer, though the best thing about pain is, it let’s you know you’re still alive, and to get Home! Well, these days, that flips itself huh? Maybe you want to get OUT of home? I rather like it. Home of house. Home of place. Home of world, etc. I suggest to entertain that… the, I’ve just had an another experience, or, are having an experience. And, one can potentially make That stronger if one discerns… What’s the workability? Not responsibility. Not accountability. Workability.

Lose the reverse gear for just a moment. What’s your perspective of your experience? Don’t be anything you think you’re expected to be. Inspect your expectations. Check ‘em at the door. Heck, shake ‘em off to reveal You. If you have to, cross-check them into the blue line wall hard enough for their helmet to shatter the glass, so you can shatter your glass ceiling(s). Shake ‘em off. Oh, and sometimes all you have to do is duck, or move out of the way. It’s nothing personal, all just some action on the ice of life. Take care of yourself out there. And, don’t be afraid to smile as you slip just to the side. My joke one year was,Go ahead. Take aim. Waste of time. I’m so shot full of holes you’re gonna miss.

A ship in harbor’s safe, but that’s not what ships are for. ~ John A. Shedd

What’s your perspective?

Keep it.

In total depth of darkness, first you’ll see a spark, then a crack, and from this crack will flow your unborn soul. ~ Altered States

Adversity does not build character. It reveals it. ~ James Lane Allen

Death is the mother of memory, nourishes the future in dreams from the perpetual present. It’s always now. What will you do with all this future you have?, NOW ~ Jordan Hoggard

Your experiences

What geode gems of messages have you mined and cracked open by not wasting trouble, by working at your craft not to stave off boredom, but to build value for yourself? What was/is your takeaway message gift from them? Too numerous to remember? None yet? That’s fair.

Your Presence

May I suggest that you have Presence As Architecture, Presence As Architecture. Keep it. Upkeep it. Enhance it and reinforce it and strengthen it. Nourish its powerful limits and boundaries. Fly as high as your roots go deep. Swim as deep And infinitely as your dreams expand within you. If your roots go deep, have a strongly developed sense of yourself, words won’t move you. You may feel them, though sometimes, still no reason than to be still. Top Gun, I’ll hit the brakes and they’ll fly right by. Next.

When the roots are deep, there is no reason to fear the wind ~ African Proverb

Why flinch or grimace or dodge? Heck, you might have already been well placed. Don’t want to move into what was going to already pass right by. Strengthen your roots, develop and enhance your sense of identity and healthy boundaries. Then, there’s no cause or reason to fear the wind so to speak.

Why move 3” when blade only 1/4” wide? ~ Unknown. Mr. Miyagi?

Mystereum Tarot Sandbox Daily Blissipline Time Is Money Tuesday

Mystereum Tarot Sandbox Daily Blissipline Time Is Money Tuesday

After blogging mostly daily for while, I’m all warmed up and ready to go!  It’s time!  I’m ready to shift focus and redirect scale here to turn up the heat, and orchestrate Mystereum’s momentum.  Now is the time to explore Imagin-Action with you in daily blogs.

Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear.  So, look in YOUR mirror.  How close are you?  How close are you to finding your own natural leadership that is present to work with and effectively enliven your own interactions?  Explore the discplined sandbox of Imagin-Action with these daily blogs.  Sound rigorous?  Sure is!  Sound hard?  Not a chance.  Imagin-Action can enhance the heartbeat and breath of your ideas to effectively play out and build foundation under your dreams.  Imagin-Action can help you make your dreams beyond real.  Imagin-Action can bring your realized dreams into play as natural features in your everyday personal, business, you-name-it course of life.

All Similar, Each Unique

Each day will bring a different Imagin-Action theme for to you to play with.

Today’s Tuesday Theme is Time Is Money Tuesday.  Discipline for Blissipline

So, right off the bat, if you think time is money, you’re probably still punching the clock in your mind and haven’t really valued your time.  Not saying to quit your job.  More a How To Assign Value To Your Time day.  Not saying that if you punch a clock or turn in a timesheet or fill out a time card that your work is not valuable . . . simply look at your writing down of your time or your clicking the clock as money that is your energy that you have turned solid.  Your time is energy that you can record, and in doing so solidify your time to BECOME money.

Your time is energy

Your time is energy that you can make solid, solidify.  Your energy across time can build money.  I love to remember hearing, “Money may not make me happy, though I just want the chance to see for myself.” Notice every quote or expression or atatement you hear about money for one, whole day.  Jack be nimble Jack be quick jump over the candle of every one.  Do this by listening to them.  Then repeat them.  Then, ask yourself what is really being said.  Is what is being said really wise?  Does what is being said express common sense? What’s the real message embedded in the twilight spaces between in each statement?

And, common sense in regards to money.

It’s often not so common, huh?  Otherwise, everyone would have some, even plenty.  Look at how YOUR sense is common for you.  What value can you reasonably assign to your time to start?  What can you do to literally see through the blind spots of expectation you have about money?  As you place your energy across time, let what you place solidify, congeal like concrete.  How do you do this?  For example put your money on your altar for 24 hours before depositing it or pocketing it.  Let it form another place in your mental real estate space.  As it does, pick it up and deposit it.

And, another tricky tip.  Tricky if you have a little or a lot

Tithe to yourself.  Tricky if you have a little or a lot as we tend to expand to our means.  Think about it.  Straight out into your 1st job, how much did you make per year?  What were you able to do with that amount?  How much do you make now?  Have you consistently increased your expenses keeping up with the Jones’ of your own perceptions of what you deserve?  Or, have you consistently expanded your base?  Stop it!  At least for a day.  Look at your situation.  Re-evaluate what it is you value. Build back IN!  Do you value security?  Travel?  Entertainment?  Books?  Tarot decks?  Make a savings or investment fund for what you value.  Actually, make 2.  Make one for that thing or activity you value.  Make another just for YOU for no reason . . . well, you deserve it, right?  I won;t ask if you value your kiddos, though please value yourself just as much.  You might only teach them lack if you always give THEM everything while you sit back like your time has passed.  Try doing something TOGETHER with your bonus.  Tell ’em, and see what happens when they KNOW how the money’s being spent.  They’ll certainly probably teach you more than this blog.  They know you better, huh?

Every time you make money

So, every time you make money, allocate an internal bonus for yourself.  Give yourself a bonus every time you make money.  Take 10% of it, and put it in your savings or investment account.  If you have made the 2 accounts above, 5% to each, or of course if you LOVE detail . . . allocate your own percentages.  This is best when you do it enough for it to become a requirement.  Not a requirement you can get in trouble for.  Let it become like a long-form big breath and heartbeat.  Every time you make money, your accounts pump and breathe.

That’s it for this segment of Time Is Money Tuesday!  Except . . .

Pick a card for the card back up there.  You have Magic and a Card Back and 6 of Pentacles epic spiral of giving and receiving and Your Whole World.  Turn over the Card Back to add your own money color into your mix.

Everything following below is wonderful extra stuff in general about play-working in the Mystereum Tarot Daily Discipline Sandbox.  Click to see what this followed to enhance from yesterday.  And, See Ya tomorrow!

Cheers!, Jordan Hoggard
