15. The Eye of the Hurricane
Forces swirl around the eye of the hurricane. The eye remains calm and steady.
The eye of your life’s hurricane is at your center.
Participate in your life’s activities, but keep your center alight, and rest there often.
Then storms will not carry you away.
14. The Sky
No matter what the weather, the sky remains the sky.
Your life’s weather is not you.
You are the sky.
You are in a kaleidoscope.
All the elements symmetrical, balanced.
Then a turn.
The elements tumble into disarray
Ultimately they resolve into a new balance.
Sometimes you turn your kaleidoscope.
Sometimes life turns it.
12. Fractal Mandala
Watch a fractal mandala video [such as “Imagine Into Being”, https://youtu.be/8VVhI2maEbE]
Constant flux, in constant balance.
Imagine being a pinpoint on one of the arcs.
Your path ascends and descends, appears and disappears.
From this vantage, it is impossible to see the whole cosmic dance.
Imagine being the pinpoint at the very center. The absolute center.
All flows from it and returns to it, in perfect symmetry.
The center is ever constant. Unchanging.
Refrain from jumping to confusions.
10. Teach and Learn
To find facts.
To differentiate facts from
Perceive what the
Respond as needed.
Often the right response is no response.
Words are pixels. What a challenge it is, to paint like Seurat!
Rest in the hammock that is the Great Smile.
6. The Word
stains the paper
finding the fibers

Just another human, practicing presence.
