Loti’s Hiatus Explained and Patiently Accepted

Cosmic Loti has had a bit of a hiatus of late.
Not all her fault. And when I say “patiently accepted“, that’s a wish path that’s improving with practice…
So, why I’ve been gone:
.
brain wiring
*  two consecutive MS attacks too close for comfort
.
*  work commitments
.
cube into a round hole
*  cosmic energy shifts
.
Cosmic Energy
*  heatwave in the UK
dog days
 

 

*  and karma
≠> ׵
So my approach?
(Which is a good trick when you can do it)

Watch each situation unfold
with patient acceptance

Patience is a mind that is able to accept, fully and happily, whatever occurs…having given up on the idea that things should be other than what they are.
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
.
It is in this calm, clear space of patient acceptance that the most beautiful of things can happen.
As the Buddhist Master Shantideva said
“If something can be remedied
Why be unhappy about it?
And if there’s no remedy for it,
There is still no point in being unhappy.”
.
This is like releasing attachment to the outcome.
If we have done all we can then it’s best to physically and metaphorically step back from the situation. Surrender and have faith that all is as it should be, no matter what the outcome.
Not the easiest, but it does become more do-able when we’ve seen how well it works.
.

    OMG I love that song! I can’t stop listening to it. The sound and vision are quite wonderful together; and it’s all whimsical and melancholy too.
    Did Cmmdr Hadfield change the words? It sounds different to Bowie’s classic somehow.

      Thanks Jinxy, yes it sounds sounds like Commander Chris is a lyricist too.
      He seems to have subtly revised the theme from being a suicide note to something much more upbeat? Floating in outer space seems to affect people, doesn’t it. Lucky astronauts.
