Wake up

I sit here this morning, coffee in had trying to decide what to do first. Create a video? Create some art. Read? It’s very hot out. The pool is so warm that it’s really only pleasant in the evening.
I read voraciously and see newspapers from all over the world. I don’t watch commercial tv except when some compelling event is happening. Last Sundays events in Orlando gave me a real glimpse in how the media is manipulating the news rather than reporting it. The only way to get a glimpse of the truth is to use as many sources as you can .

A wander comes upon a master sitting under a tree.
“Can I achieve enlightenment through meditation?” asked the wander.
“No” replied the master.
A few days later the wander comes upon another master.
“Can I achieve enlightenment through meditation?” asked the wander.
“No” replied the master.
A few days later the wander comes upon Buddha sitting in the dust beside the road.
“Oh great buddha” says the wander. ” I Have walked many days along this road and asked many teachers if meditation would lead to enlightenment. The have all denied that it would. So why do you instruct us to meditate?”
“You are already enlightened .” Buddha responds. “Meditation is done to still the dream ; so you may awaken”

I was either boon 100 years to late or 100 years to early.

  1. Everything we need to know………………we already do. We just need to remember it………..to tap in to that knowledge. You were born at the perfect time………..not too late, not too early…………..this time will teach you the lessons you need to learn in this lifetime…….and you will accomplish all you are meant to………………..but you already know all of this…………….and these images are larger……….your right……….they are lighter…………….and quite beautiful……………
