Today Osho Zen Tarot told me: “Life repeats itself mindlessly. Unless you become mindful it will go on repeating, like a wheel. Life is continuously changing, dying, being reborn. All opposites play a part in this vast circular pattern. If you cling to the edge of the wheel, you can get dizzy! Move towards the center and relax, knowing that this too will pass.”
While amazing possibilities are opening up for me on outward as well as inward levels, I still find truth in a old 60s adage: “Wherever you go, there you are.” Like– here’s an old re-run of tangled emotional conversation with that person, and now I’m avoiding deeper connection that may bring conflict with this person.
“So you find out you are human!” says Self. “Ha!”
Clinging to the edge of the wheel with thoughts like these does make me dizzy with layered emotions and feelings of futility. What was the key? According to Osho, move toward the center, relax, and be mindful. Where have I heard that before? Oh yeah…from my Self. And ok, rub it in….I teach this stuff.
So you find out you are human.
fall to center… (relief)….
be aware… (not the same as judgmental)….
smile… (a flash understanding of cosmic humor)…
and let the change up begin.
