Tuesday Teachings for this week: and we’re talking about a major first step on our life path. Journaling is a powerful life skill to learn . . . I write these Tuesday Teachings here on the zen.vegan.thrive blog for your empowerment through skills and mastery.
So, Journaling with our rhythms and cycles . . . step #2 this week
Would the story of your life in your day have more meaning? Zen is about nothing more than living . . . and the process of living life in your daily life. This Tuesday I’m drawing on the wisdom of an amazing 20th Century American teacher: Sheldon Kopp wrote “If You Meet the Buddha on the Road, Kill Him”. In my video episode below, I quote and read to you from another of his books: “The Hanged Man”.
I’m talking about how important our stories are – and what Sheldon Kopp says is important in understanding how we can have more meaning in the Life we have in our Day. We came here to be happy, and for many of us today we simply need to slow down, live with Cosmic rhythms and cycles of Nature: which means our return to innocence.
The big changes that are happening in our world right now can seem overwhelming, but we can empower ourself by making small changes within – practice is powerful.
You can try a regular practice in living with our 28-day lunar cycles with the daily practices in each 7-day phase on The Kindest Revolution practices section [here . . .] Then if you’d like more of a group experience, we can share our stories of our Journeys: I’ll put up the link on a playlist for you to upload any videos you make from your writing, thoughts, creativity. Let me know in the comments below?
Here’s a refresher from Journaling #1: . . . I’m teaching you practices from the Ancient Eastern Wisdom Paths – with Zen and Spiritual Yoga. And it’s a daily flow of working with our Moon cycles and Lunar rhythms. So, as many of you might know I’m teaching to flow with our monthly 28 day lunar cycles.
In Vedic Astrology this is called “living with our Nakshatras” or, the lunar Mansions of the Goddess where we find our joy [or not] and our ability to be less stressed-out or stretched-out through pressure of time. Learning to live with flow.
