The Beja Flor Age

Posted in animals, art, beauty, Feminism, health, judaism, life, love, relationships, sex, spirituality, subculture, travel, WTF, yoga by the consummate on November 16, 2012

I yearn for the day we live in the realm of the hummingbird. I want to be free from my mind and free from my ego. Although I have evolved so much over the last year, I pray that I can overcome and evolve even more.

I should probably write more often.

Trust no one. I keep channeling these words and a feeling – it’s telling me to tell you – DO NOT TRUST HER. I hope you read this blog entry because I cannot reach out to you directly. I do not know what this channeling is in reference too, so take it as you must.

You Cannot Borrow Happiness From Outside

Posted in art, artists, beauty, family, friendship, health, judaism, life, love, relationships, spirituality, subculture, swami satchidananda, WTF, yoga by the consummate on March 29, 2012

The mind is restless; it is always looking for a change. That is the nature of the mind. It can never be satisfied. It might rebel and want you to go live in a teepee in the mountains. After a while it won’t be happy with your teepee on the mountaintop; it will think that only putting a teepee in the valley will make you happy. Once you are in the valley, it will want a teepee on Mars. There is no limit for the mind’s restlessness.

You have to educate the mind. Ask it:

“Why do you want to go to the mountain?”
“To find peace there.”
“Why do you want to come down?”
“I am tired of that and want to be with people.”

What does it all mean? That you are trying to borrow happiness from outside. Once you realize that peace and joy are always within you, you will be happy no matter where you are. Whether you are in the valley or in the mountains, it is the same thing.

Whether you are on the earth or on Mars, it is the same thing. Wherever you are, you should have a purpose. Go to the mountain for a purpose; come down for a purpose. And don’t let that purpose be a selfish one. The purpose should be for the benefit of others, for service to humanity.

The War We Really Wage (From Harish)

Posted in art, artists, family, Feminism, friendship, health, life, love, spirituality, subculture, WTF, yoga by the consummate on March 21, 2012

“Practitioners who train in courage become true warriors. The war we wage is not with enemies outside ourselves but with the powerful forces of our own habitual tendencies and negative emotions. The greatest of these is fear. In order to become fearless, we need to experience fear. Facing fear changes our perspective and gives rise to the courage to face our neuroses as well as our enlightened qualities.”

 – Dzigar Kongtrul

The Heart Will Win

“The heart should play an important role, not only in married life, but in all of our relationships: with friends, relatives, business associates, and even strangers. Even if the other person uses the head, you should use more heart. Remember, ultimately the heart will win; it might take time but it will win. If you really want to use your heart, you will be guided in that direction. God’s guidance will be there. Pray more and trust in that higher force.

Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi”

The Giver and Receiver Both Have Lessons To Learn

Posted in art, artists, beauty, health, judaism, life, love, relationships, spirituality, subculture, swami satchidananda, WTF, yoga by the consummate on January 17, 2012

Both Have Lessons To Learn

If you want to give some advice, your first duty is to look and see if that person will accept it, if he or she will be benefited by your saying something. If the person gets upset, it shows that you don’t know how to say it gently in the proper way. In that case, you learn something from it: “Ahh, I made her angry. I should have known how to present the problem. It is her problem, but I have to learn how to present it in the right way. Maybe I put it bluntly and that is why she got upset.” There are things for you to learn also. If your intention is to help someone but you fail to make him realize that you are helping him, it’s your mistake. You can’t blame him for that.

The giver of the help should remember certain things about how to give constructive suggestions. Stop and think, “Is this the right moment to discuss this? Am I presenting it in the proper way?” If you positively know that the person is not in a mood to receive it from you, wait until another time or start very gently. Then give that person time to think about it. Maybe at the spur of the moment the ego will come and say, “How dare you tell me that!” But when you go away, he or she will try to apply your advice. Remember there is a giver and a receiver; both have lessons to learn.

Intern Duties

My intern, in her tiger costume, dutifully walked my dog, in his devil costume, on Halloween. I was too busy at work being a dead revolutionary to walk him but not busy enough to take the picture and discover this was my intern’s first dog walking experience, ever. Glad I could contribute to a first.

Lady Don’t Tek No – Latryx

After months of putting it off, I finally went to the gynecologist today. I must say that I’ve certainly had plenty of strange experiences in my life – but not particularly when it comes to the gyno. Sure, I’ve been a starving creative in New York and spent some time at the Margaret Sanger Center at Planned Parenthood on Bleecker Street. There you found women like me, too poor to attain health insurance but not poor enough to be considered poor. Does this strike you to be familiar Americans?

Nevertheless, I hold dual citizenship in the US & in Hungary. Clever me, believed I could obtain free medical care while in Hungary, one of the reasons I scheduled an appointment to see the doctor here. In Eastern Europe. Yes. I am crazy. (more…)
