(The below is from a journal entry of August 1, 2019, while I was initially waiting for the bus. I continued for most of my bus ride home, roughly about an hour-ish. Then as I concentrated, I began to feel panicky, tried some deep breaths, but came out of it as I was working more on some controlled breaths, leading to a cool powerful conclusion)
6:35pm: Speech Writing.
That is the stuff I’m talking about! Pizza and speech writing and a movie? It all seems to be a bit much for tonight, does it not, Sir?
The movie could have to do with the Leo Moon energies … and the Dicaprio film was a possibility, but as he heard, the whispery echo reverberate from his speech writing, he began to relax.
And he knew that everything was going to be ok,
as he began to understand what it means to let go
and enjoy an unfolding new direction of what conscious creation entails.
Long has the curiosity held him of whether or not he was creating the tension with his longings of wanting it now, and straining too hard with forces he isn’t yet familar.
En route back to home base, he keeps his wits about him without constraint, but adopting more of the Tiger energy … Not afraid to harness that energy,
because it seems that ofttimes the second he “tries to focus” on something, the panicky force comes around.
… is he, by his campfire, afraid of his own mind, of falling into that mental chatter that pulls him down into despair?
Remain with the Tiger.
Get that breath control down … it seems important to avoid the panic.
A fighter’s breath
… and the breath has helped you to stay present when facing that addictive pull of video games.
your breath has helped you to keep an even keel
when sailing the ship,
and navigating [not treachurous, but high adventurous waters] seas filled with sparkling luring treasures of awesomeness, but also lots of icebergs, and debris of pain from the ships of previous voyages,
of previous attempts to fly.
[The crazy wild pirate would help you out infinitely there…
HA! It’s good to be cautious and careful, it’s better to be courageous than cautious … but still it’s best to be crazy.
A tempered crazy … yes … Now breathe;
it seems yes like Mercury is full underway direct,
and praise be the gods may they shine down their assistance (is there a god who is the patron saint of angels?)
and tie in our willingness to go full speed ahead without looking back the other way, because ultimately it does not matter WHEN WE PLAY THE LONG GAME and maintain lookout and sights on the BIGGER PICTURE, because the ping pong of your decisions and the confidence you build in making decisions and trust in yourself to make decisions as you proceed forward as you press onward.
Steady as she goes.
NOT like the Titanic.
Thank you Jack Dawson.
P.S. Finding out how coffee withdrawls led to depressive-like symptoms has increased my resolve to rid myself of this addiction. The other day when I celebrated saying goodbye to coffee, I was whistling the Christmas tune Ben Afleck does at the end of the great movie Reindeer Games.
