Osho Zen Flowering
Shaman Wisdom Reading
for August 27, 2020
My old computer finally died. It took me three weeks to get a new one, thanks to my son Alan. It looks just like the old one, except it’s brand new. My first option was to buy what I thought I could afford; a rebuilt cheap PC for $300. At that “I need to get a computer now” moment, I thought I certainly couldn’t afford what I really wanted, a new Apple iMac. But I’ve been using the Apple brand for years, I’m used to it, and for all the hours, months and years i’ve spent writing my novels on this computer, I certainly deserved a “this or better” replacement. So with my money and his, the “or better” is what was manifested and what I’m now writing with. Yeah!
I’m always fascinated with “habits.” It takes at least 21 days of repetition – doing or not doing, having or not having, to develop a new habit. After 17 days without a computer, I could begin to feel what my life would be like without one. Not having felt a bit sad because I would never complete my novels. This inspired me to get back into my novel writing, if my brain complies.
I was looking back at my very old blogs and there was another time, I think in the late 90’s, when I would draw an Osho Zen Tarot card every morning, as I’m doing now. There was one month of 30 days where i drew the card FLOWERING ten times. The chances of that happening were astronomical. And now this year, with 102 previous readings, i hadn’t drawn that card once, until today. Regarding my new computer, it begins with Zen wanting us to live in abundance, not in lack.
Queen of Rainbows – FLOWERING:
Zen wants you living, living in abundance, living in totality, living intensely – not at the minimum as Christianity wants you, but at the maximum, overflowing. Your life should reach to others. Your blissfulness, your benediction, your ecstasy should not be contained within you like a seed. It should open like a flower and spread its fragrance to all and sundry – not only to the friends but to the strangers too. This is the real compassion, this is real love: sharing your enlightenment, sharing your dance of the beyond.
“The Queen of Rainbows is like a fantastic plant that has reached the apex of its flowering and its colors. She is very sexual, very alive, and full of possibilities. She snaps her fingers to the music of love, and her zodiac necklace is placed in a way that Venus lies over her heart. The sleeves of her garment contain an abundance of seeds, and as the wind blows the seeds will be scattered to take root where they may. She is not concerned whether they land on the soil or on the rocks – she is just spreading them everywhere in sheer celebration of life and love. Flowers fall on her from above, in harmony with her own flowering, and the waters of emotion swirl playfully beneath the flower on which she sits. You might feel like a garden of flowers right now, showered with blessings from everywhere. Welcomes the bees, invite the birds to drink your nectar. Spread your joy around for all to share.”
