Odd Ramblings


“I am obscure and odd, very deeply odd.”
— Virginia Woolf


Am I obscure? Perhaps but then I tend towards the mistake that many have read what I’ve read tho I seen to have more of a taste for it than others. Puzzling but then I have enjoyed the company of books more often and deeper at times than the company of other people. Connections made with the writers or the beings that they write about . A character from a beloved novel invoked at 3 AM can be as powerful as any other spirit and there are many with whom I have had discourse. But then like dear Ms. Wolfe, I have no trouble admitting to my oddness.
The more I live life, the more puzzling I find certain aspects of it. Sometimes this is amazingly heartening and sometimes like the present I find it frustrating. I want to be able to fix the world or at least the parts of it that I love and yet I can see perspectives where there is no brokenness just being. Anything can be healed perhaps yet the how and why and consequences of doing so are not often available. Everything has ripples, ways in which they interact with other things that interact still more that any change to the system can change it beyond recognition. Yet still I impose my will even tho I may not know how to cause no harm. Still the I I know as me is new to this game, merely in it for a little over half a century. Maybe with time the wisdom and discernment of how to act and more importantly when will come. Until then I learn and attempt..why anything I set my mind to I suppose.
Blessings, G

Quote of the Day – September 15 2012

“Mindfulness must be engaged. Once there is seeing, there must be acting. Otherwise, what’s the use of seeing?”
― Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step


Putting what you know into action I can understand that. How do we know what right action is? If you see a car about to hit a child, right action becomes obvious. Do what you can to avoid mortal harm to the child. Actually I believe we can agreeto thisbio matter what the age if the person involved. What happens when the answer isn’t as obvious?

Thich Nhat Hanh said once there is seeing. We may see the need for action but not know what action to take. That feels ok because we generally don’t know. We may be facing a blind spot or block that we have to work throughuntil right action becomes clear. Prayer and meditation  helps as does the council of the wise. Eventually clear seeing happens and right action becomes obvious. Until then a lesson in patience may be called for
