Plans 264




Sapien plans
Are whispers in the 
Winds of time

Alexander the great made a big splash
And died in his early 30s
What's he up to these days
In just 100 short years all
My "great accomplishments"
And "painful tragedies"
Will be completely gone totally unknown
What a big deal we make of all this
Short live busyness and reactivity
How quickly a decade passes
All we have is this present moment
Make the most of it
Keep learning be grateful, 
Kind and generous
All is well

Sapien plans
Are whispers in the 
Winds of time

Meditation 263




Meditation
Is a bridge to
The unknown

Where can it take someone
Buddhahood?
A peaceful relaxed traffic jam?
The ability to really concentrate? 
300 in your next bowling match?
A flow state of super productivity?
A calm loving disagreement?
An explanation for human life on earth?
A chest championship?
Mindfulness?
A release from depression?
There's a lot of theories out there

Meditation
Is a bridge to
The unknown

Consider 262

Consider
Act
Observe
Nothing is gain

One can never know at the beginning
Where all the obstacles lie
As the plan takes shape and materializes
The flaws and misjudgments are exposed
Here is the opportunity
Learn what is needed to prevail
Or take your lessons
With gratitude and goodwill
And make another plan

Consider
Act
Observe
Nothing is gain
unknown

Know 261

I don't need to
Know more
I need to use more of
What I know

Simple things
Breath
Deeply not shallow 
Don't hold your breath
Stand straight
Don't talk so much
Or interrupt people
Eat slowly and chew thoroughly
Drink enough water
Pay attention to your thoughts
Relax
All is well

I don't need to
Know more
I need to use more of
What I know

The way 260

What stands in
The way
Is the way

I am usually the major obstacle
Between where I am and where I
Think I want to be
So 
Form a clear plan
Set a target date
Write it down
Read it everyday
Learn the required skills
Acquire the needed resources
Charge        Never relent

What stands in
The way
Is the way

Dream 259

Life is but a
Dream
Don't turn it into a
Nightmare

Perception
Interpretation
It's not what's going on
But the meaning that I give to it
The choice is always mine
Will I allow opinion and habit
To create some form of disharmony
Or will I see this as an
Opportunity
To be grateful for my life,
All the blessings that I now enjoy
And the progress I have made 
Freeing myself from the creation of
Unwholesome mind states

Life is but a
Dream
Don't turn it into a
Nightmare

Own 258

Own the
Morning
Rule
The day

Routine can be our greatest ally
No decisions the same thing
Just about every day
Start the coffee
Feed the dog and cat
Take a hot and cold shower outdoors
Read for 1 1/2 to 2 hours
Stretch and do isometrics on 
A vibrating platform
Then another hot and long cold shower
Exercise push-ups sit ups etc.
Write a blog
Meditate
Then emails and writing

Own the
Morning
Rule
The day
