“Reality denied comes back to haunt.” ~ Philip K. Dick
“Why should we look to the past in order to prepare for the future? Because there is nowhere else to look.” ~ James Burke
“History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit, but even without being sure of “history” it seems entirely reasonable to think that every now and then the energy of a whole generation comes to a head in a long fine flash, for reasons that nobody really understands at the time — and which never explain, in retrospect, what actually happened.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson
Although the situation is way larger, I will openly admit to a rich sense of Schadenfreude. I am, of course, talking about the formal impeachment inquiry of that half-baked Moriarty who would be Trump; whereas the true Moriarty is not at all stupid. Other than that this feels to be a sweet day. I’m dazzled by the joy I feel from the changed light following the Equinox. Clarity is what I see, whereas the light of Summer is nearly brash in it’s presence — or at least boisterous. It’s all about angles and planets and stars and stuff. I’d love to be sharing a beer with Richard Feynman, discussing this issue, and maybe some of his brilliance might rub off on me. One can only hope. What I mean is not his knowledge — I have my own, in abundance. What I mean is his brightness. I speak from Shadow a good part of the time. Brain trauma lodged me in a dark place — on a part time basis. I have my moments. A few people have called me a “Lightworker”. Yeh, why not. Carl Jung urged a basic form of Enlightenment that does no more than to bring Light into Shadow, thus illuminating to reveal the dark forms that will become allies at least, instead of the looming beasts that they are purported to be. The prospect does me good to contemplate and/or cogitate. I think it was David Bohm who proposed the replacement of either/or with both/and. There is a whole school of thinking that supports this proposal. I’m sure it goes back before Bohm, but I just wanted to mention two brilliant physicists in today’s post. Don’t ask me why. Both/and is a fine way of doing you own therapy for yourself. Today may bring such therapy, or it may just be a spaced-out river of dreams. Yeh, I’d be happy to daydream today. That certain smile. That strange excitement that I acquire from contemplating the delicious contradictions couched within quantum physics. The way the spirits of the Ancestors communicate with us regardless of our disbelief or fear. The way sowing the seeds of Love doth make sprouts of us all. I think I’ll squirt some chlorophyl into a glass of water and drink it down. Chlorophyl in water the morning, Key Lime juice in the IPA in the evening. There is balance in this approach to the second of three sequential days off from work, and perhaps progress as well. Now, that smile is calling me as the Goddess giggles in my Central Nervous System, no doubt amused by the horns of dilemma I encounter when considering the choice of doing something about that smile, or just leaving it to the Ancestors to guide me on my way. Of course, horns remind me of the Great God Pan, and how he cast forth wisdom to Psyche when he found her at the river’s edge where she was lovesick and suicidal. He encouraged her to pray to the Creative Force rather than taking her own life in the river. I can dig it.
All is well. Goof gloriously.
