a saturnian morning…

up at 430, wide awake and pleasantly surprised at how happy i feel. drinking coffee, juiced all the lemons and limes and put them in ice cube trays for the freezer, made 2 vegi smoothies for the day and the egg sandwich that makes up my daily breakfast. went through all the crap on the table, threw most of it away, organized 2 stacks for weekend projects, 1 recipes and 1 belly dancing. topped the morning off by ordering 5lbs of yumearth organic lollipops for the salon. i feel amazing! have a great day.

The Lion’s Gaze

The Renegade Press

There is an ancient fable from Terma in which Padmasambhava, a literary character, appears before a Terton and teaches him how to better focus his emotions. Padmasambhava says that when a stick is thrown to a dog, the dog will chase the stick. Yet when you throw a stick to a lion, the lion chases you. A dog’s gaze will always follow the object: the stick. The lion gazes steadily at the source: the thrower.

Yep, that’s right. After a brief absence from this site I’ve returned to drop some obscure philosophy served with a side of self-indulgence on you that’s sure to leave you scratching your head wondering why the hell you’re even reading it.

But hear me out. Open your mind and be prepared to look beyond the stick and instead focus on what is really important: the thrower, and why they tossed it in the first place.
