I try to gain wisdom over smart as I age in place. I always thought wisdom was less in supply than smart. We have many smart people who just aren’t wise. We have individuals with numerous degrees or credentials. They became well educated in specific areas but they never became wise. Maybe that is why we see the outpouring of stupidity we see today.
What a crazy funny week this has been. I have to laugh at the nuttiness of it all. Just when you think the world can’t get worse in the news or social media or any media, you remember a few basic tenets of our current life. This all will pass away. All of us will someday too. So, it behooves us to think on the things that are beautiful, wonderful and kind. The news will just always be negative because that is what sells and people like to be scared or angry or right. The news is plastered with the ending of this phase of Afghanistan’s evolution. It is plastered with covid counts. Gosh, I can’t read them any more.
“As a species, if we do not stop ignoring what Mother Earth is telling us about our
practices, she’s gonna do it for us. And it’s not going to be humans winning.” Jess Due, national care director of Farm Sanctuary. We have become a ruling class that has created another world living against its environment, not with it.
I remember many years ago when my former husband was a fighter pilot in Viet Nam, he would say that every day is Wednesday. They bombed every day. It didn’t matter if it was Saturday or Sunday; every day was Wednesday. The comment reminds me of my life today. This Wednesday routine won’t always be the case but it is now in the present and, in reality, that is all I can work in. Saturday and Sunday’s are more of the same as Wednesday. Working from home, self-employed, I can go walk on any day, go to the pharmacy any day, take out food any day, shop at Trader Joe’s any day etc. The only must do week days are doctor appointments. Here is Los Angeles, there are no cultural, sporting events, dining
Sometimes it feels as if we take two steps forward and three back. However, we still keep moving forward and that’s a good thing. Even though right now it is just a a series of bumbling and jerking, we move the ball a bit further and further. In spite of ourselves, we are progressing. It’s easy to be discouraged, frightened (petrified) and exhausted. So many changes are taking place and everything appears uncertain. Where, why and what has happened? This is what big changes look like. The rug is yanked out from beneath and we have to attempt to save ourselves and regain our balance. My motto is “don’t borrow trouble”. Do not go around the block to meet it.
As you know I have been interested in Numerology and other ancient mystery school information. The more you learn, the more you need to learn. It is an endless loop of knowledge. We as a group are just waking up out of ignorance. As we travel the spirals of lifetimes and civilizations, we pass through the portals of various levels and planes of existence and consciousness. In our “modern” times and I question the word modern, we are learning how little we know. Our ignorance shows up in many forms, belief in superstition, believing
I remember several years ago a friend mentioned this to me. Stop borrowing trouble. Don’t go
around the block to meet it. These words have saved me from myself many times over. Maybe I am wrong, but in my experience we seem to all love to scare ourselves and go out to the future and expect the worst case scenarios. We are really doing it now in spades with the corona virus scare. This is not to say that it isn’t real or deadly but we are focusing on the “how” we will make it moving
Humans will get through this latest test of its humanity as it has been doing for ions. As the corona virus spreads itself around the world, we are finding that politics and politicians really can’t wish it away. Neither can they laugh it off or blame it on another political party, a witch hunt, a hoax or that the dog ate my homework. This is such a critical period for all of us as we get to see how we think and feel about things we can’t control. Not being able to control our own safety is really scary. We wear masks (that for the most part don’t work), we wear gloves (forgetting that now we have the virus on our gloves and we touch our clothes with them as well as all types of door knobs, food products etc. Share and share alike
We are down to the final decision on the two democratic primary candidates. I thought it the best time to take another look at Bernie Sanders and a new look at Joe Biden. I did a chart on Bernie back in early 2016 and nothing has changed since. A birth chart stays with you your entire life. Some transits may occur but the core of you is intact.

Don’t borrow trouble. Stop going around the block to meet it. A wise friend told this to me many years ago and it has guided me all my life. That doesn’t mean I don’t worry or concern myself too much with trying to figure out the “how” of everything. I am more conscious now of the “what” and not the “how”. Over the years I have learned the best way to stop myself and waste copious amounts of time is to try to figure out the how.
