Tastes on balance
My body is a place to look out from
To go home after looking out
And to live how I do when I'm at home
And that the world isn't the same as me
Yet we share space
I'm ready to accept my small spot I'm in,
in the consequences, and the fruits of my labor
That I see things where I am and take note of my steps
and things where I'm not
And to not ever change my pace for a story that has
To do with me
It owes me nothing so I cut it loose
At least internally
And strive to remain in balance
With where my life comes from
Where I feel the most alive
Im ready to accept
the loud narrative of progress has nothing to do with my being as a being in connection with my roots, whether they arrive as food, electricity, internet, money, etc
Ahh friends and rice and infinite
Invite the forest over
Following some words of wisdom from a Zen teacher I follow, I set a goal to meditate 4 out of every 5 days. My habit tracker informs me that I'll break my longest streak - three weeks, dating back to last December - if I sit tomorrow and Friday.
This is cool. I'm hoping to get to four weeks on this streak.
Oh gosh today is ok and good
Because I'm confronting the task ahead and that feels good
I wonder what is all I can do
I wonder what is the preparation I need to do for achieving it
Having good people and a good library study away from my home environment is key
cause doing that it's so revealing and vulnerable and scary. but fuck it, you know? ah, i'm left with many feelings and also very motivated to tell the stories y want to tell without trying to, idk, embellish them to death.
anyway, very much recommended. got stomach butterflies and everything!
Did I ever show you the rainbow birch trees I painted? And the blue sky through trees? And looking up? I didn't, right?
