May you notice, define, enjoyment in your experience. May you see the smallest inner enjoyments to bridge the gap to larger outer enjoyment. May you find ways to reach for better, no matter the subject. May you find ways to reach for better, no matter what your world shows you. May you see that every moment can bring pain or pleasure and our focus makes all the difference. May you understand your own mortality and utilize it to find great appreciation for your continued survival. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti

Next time.

I am grateful for the time to reconnect to myself. I am grateful for toes in the sand. I am grateful for salt water waves. I am grateful for the sun continuing to shine. I am grateful for birds and beasts and breath taking beauty all around. I am grateful for time to let go and allow better. I am grateful for space and time. I am grateful for good food and good window shopping. I am grateful for exploration. I am grateful for this experience.

Next time:

  • More sun
  • More fun
  • Less responsibility
  • More independence
  • More and bigger money flow
  • Same or better amenities
  • One really nice seafood dinner to savour in silence looking out over the water. The couple of times I’ve gotten to do that, it was amazing.
  • More me, less for others
  • Longer duration
  • Different location
  • More flexibility (usually comes with independence, but never hurts to specify)
  • Better water pressure (in amenities)
  • Better swim-ability (warmer waters, less wind, calmer waves)
  • Kids/spouse to join me (as long as someone else can watch the kids for safety concerns) I prefer the fun parts.
  • More quiet time for me, more alone time.
  • More savoring of everything
  • Explore the coast more
  • See new things, experience new things
  • More of ME… I like me.

I realized on this short trip that I have been manifesting my family and their expectations for so long that I have had a hell of a time stopping that ball. I have slowed the momentum significantly and found more of me. I like me, and I’m very different than they are.

May you have many things to be grateful for. May you find yourself and your inner fire. May you see yourself for who you are and what you deserve. May you find every way possible to allow your own light even when it seems challenging. May you always have reasons for a next time, and know you are allowing better and better, to flow a better next time. May you enjoy more and appreciate every moment. May you see your creations and find ways to open your vortex more. May you find a way to apply your “work-hard” ethics to “think and allow” so that you flow your own self, as well or better than, you flow other’s expectations of you. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Om Shanti

On this Christmas day I think of my family. I chose not to call any of them because I disappoint them by not being simply a “regular Christian” like them. They don’t understand how I call myself pagan, celebrate yule, and still celebrate Christmas.

Mainly it’s because I educated myself enough to know that Christianity stole a lot from earlier peoples in an effort to convert people. I also understand that Jesus came to save us by teaching us what we were already looking at and ignoring (see the withheld Gnostic Gospels). Several religions already had books and teachers, teaching how to get to our divine selves, and there have been several ascended masters sent before Christ, all to show it could be done. Yet, the masses were doing anything but. Christians, Jews and Islamics, constantly fighting wars over the same damn book and a central patch of land. Other peoples fighting other wars over similar stupid reasons. 2000 years after Christ we’re still missing the point, and so now we’re in the midst of a colossal learning lesson for all of humanity. I wish I had more hope that everyone will get it for once. It seems every couple thousand years God really hits a point where he needs us to get the message or die and start over. I don’t blame the divine for hitting that wall, we very much created this mess and expect the divine to fix it for us.

I had a conversation with a client about details of that, and I must have put a massive chink in the layers of his ingrained box, because between him and his wife I received roughly $200 in tips. I’m grateful for the cash as it was very needed, but my goal was not tips, my goal was healing for both of us, and helping him see healthier more accepting ways to view things. I must have had the desired effect, and I’m grateful that the divine supported me in conveying what he needed to hear and understand. I wish I had that ability with my own flesh and blood more often.

Regardless, I do still believe in Christ and still refuse to call myself Christian. I refuse to participate in the politics of religion. I do intend to be as authentic as possible, work on myself as much as possible, and heal myself and my universe as much as possible. I can be the change this world needs to see- with enough practice. Christ taught that God could be found “in a grain of sand or a blade of grass, in the sun in your eyes or the wind on your face”, that the divine was everywhere and that we were responsible for being divine children spreading light and love, compassion, understanding, and healing.

Yet, I still find that moment manifest in Eastern philosophical practices, far more often than practiced by any one of the desert seat religions. None are perfect, all religions have flaws, and there are exceptions to every rule, but percentages seem to imply that the eastern peoples have a bit better understanding of that responsibility and how to accomplish it.

Anyway, after a play doh based conversation over color with Katherine, my client exchange before the holiday, and feelings regarding birth family, it is stirring my creativity. Perhaps I can convey, with a little divine assistance, another message of acceptance on this Christmas evening.

* The picture is my children under “The Magic Tree” in Lee’s Summit. It’s 5 min from our house, and I’m grateful to be so close to a beautiful celebration of living color and holiday magic. It’s a perfect blending of all things holiday and joyful unique colorful expression.

May we all have a magic tree in our life. May you have a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Kwanza, Joyful Dwali (belated), Happy Yule, Savory Solstice, Happy Ramadan and Happy New Year. May you welcome everyone and support their holidays as their way to celebrate this world, all goodness, and the divine. May you see and feel how to connect yourself with your Self. May the rainbow of uniqueness fill your world with awe and wonder always. May you be present and find the healing you seek in the now. May you enjoy holidays of all kinds knowing they help people feel a sense of belonging, love and light. May you see your way past the politics of religion and sameness. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.

Happy Holidays, Om Shanti

Sounds fun.

Beating the drum of what sounds fun. Working on trying to find me.

Dancing sounds fun, not jumping around in a bar, no, actual dancing. I’ve done the bar thing, I’ve never actually gone dancing. Dancing sounds fun, real dancing sounds like love. I don’t even know where to go dancing here in Kansas City.

My hammock is a sort of fun. It’s comforting and relaxing. I spent time there today, right up until my skin started to feel scorched.

Swimming is fun, I’d love to have a real pool at ready access. As it is, I swim as much as I can, based on finding time to accommodate going somewhere else to do so.

Hiking is fun, it has been a long time since I’ve been hiking, but I really like it. The kind of hiking where you need good shoes or boots and the trails take you places you’ve never seen. We did that  in little spurts when we went to Maine/Acadia with my one brother, I relish my pictures from that trip. Before that, the last trip for hiking was about 14 years ago with 12 Indian-American IT professionals, that was a trip full of great fun, where I got to see Mount Rushmore for the first time. Before that, I was a kid, and we did a decent amount of that when I was a kid.

Playing with clay is fun. It’s really messy because, well it’s clay. I’m also not very skilled at ceramics, so that makes it extra messy, but it’s still fun, and I’ve not had opportunity since college.

Making costumes is fun, I should clarify- when you’re only making your own. Once you have a whole family to make them for it becomes daunting, especially because no one can agree and settle on one choice with enough time to actually accomplish them. I haven’t even tried this year because previous years burnt me out and recipients weren’t happy with them when I did finish them.

Laying on a sunny beach is fun, but riding in a boat is even more fun. I’ve been on boats about a dozen times in my life. There was family day for a Coast Guard visit- full Cutter experience, 2 big sail-boat rides, going into the submarine at Navy Pier, visiting the boat in Boston harbor twice (kid + 2019), and I can remember 3 pontoon rental/rides (one of which was gifted by a good friend)…. There’s been 4 canoe trips with school & girl-scouts, and a couple paddle boat rides at Gaea. I could definitely use more boating in my life.

I like spelunking too. Mammoth caves were way cool, but even the tiny Maquoketa Caves in Iowa were fun too. I like the slimy interesting shapes and squeezing through a little gap into a big cavern.

Horse rides are awesome, I love horses. Again I only have a small handful of those experiences. The trip to Mount Rushmore was one. There was once with girl-scouts. There was a family vacation in highschool. And there have been 4 horse and buggy rides with Nathan (and family).

Camping is great fun, and I’m even taking about tent camping. See my family growing up wanted the camper and the amenities, but everything was always stressful, set-up, tear-down, and trying to fit 4 or 5 large people in a tiny space. Lots of yelling and cursing and people wandering off to find their space. As an adult I made friends with tents via Nathan and Gaea, and though set-up was still a little stressful, it was always much shorter and there was way less stress in the experience, an hour of decompression was all that was ever needed to find peace and contentment. But we haven’t been camping at Gaea since before Anya’s mom died and Ian was born (same summer).

I love sitting around a fire, but add drummers and Meade and it’s even better.

Festivals of any kind are usually fun, but I especially love festivals where some rules are left behind (Gaea, RenFaire or similar).

I love live music of any kind. I’ve seen James Galway, Paul McCartney with the U of I marching band, orchestral performances, quartets, quintets, piano recitals, heavy metal, Hypnogaja, America, Kansas, Dropkick Murphys, Kongos, and several other popular bands in large outdoor settings like City festivals, plus who knows how many cover bands. I like all music, and especially live.

I like playgrounds that are shady, it was fun when I was a kid and it still is when I go with my kids. There’s nothing like butt burn from a slide with no shade, yuck! But I’ll slide all day long if it’s shady.

Halloween was great fun up until a year or two ago. Last year Covid killed it, and the year before cranky kids did. But I really really love all things Halloween.

I like gardens, big small, Arboretums, all sizes. Flowers are beautiful, and going to big gardens I usually associate with vacations, in fact I haven’t even been able to see all the ones here in KC. It’s my thing, but my husband and kids don’t like them.

I miss Ren Faire. Here in KC pre-covid it was amazing. We could spend a whole day there and not see everything. And the biggest challenge was only spending what was planned! I always wanted to buy everything.

May you have good things to focus on and which help you find your inner voice. May you find ways to do those things you love that stays kind to your budget. May you know those around you support you in finding fun. May you feel like you have plenty of rest even when maximizing fun time. May you enjoy life mostly.

Om Shanti
