→→→→ vertical line TOPIC: THE WOODMAN AND PRAYER FLAGS.
vertical line Posted on Mar.13.2007 @ 08:25AM EDT by stephen

 

When I was boy I read in a Christen book (the Gift of the Holy Spirit) that if you need someone God will send them but you got to be looking. How many karma encounters do we have that we do not grasp or do not act on? The trick is to always be looking, always to be aware. Some of the best love, wisdom or understanding is many times left on the floor for a lack of an attentive consumer. As you said woodman you must be looking for the prayer flags to see them. MU

vertical line It is the thought that is prayer, thoughts placed on the wind, becoming part of the invisible motion which returns to the source.

vertical line Comrade Rustoff,

Please define 'valid' in this sense:

valid way of getting to heaven quick, (cheap, no small print),

valid way of wasting your time,

valid way of feeling better about yourself,

valid way of getting the priest/ minister/ guru to think of you as a better person

valid way of mumbling attractive words,

valid way of talking to god, God or Oh, MY GOD!

valid way of...etc. etc. ad nauseum

Regards,

Father O' Waffle

vertical line Pheasants crow flying to roost, a dog is barking as tip-tap, a horse walks by the window, quiet voices are told by the gate and carry to me on the still air through the glass, it's now the time for dinner - cause and effect is one event.

vertical line And tonight I have to go to work, so I had to sleep today. Well, I did some other things, but prayer flags weren't in there. I have been praying a lot though. So I feel like a flag, on a windy, cold, yet sunny day.  I think that flag monk is gonna have to come to me. Cuz I've got mine out there. Whoops! Never mind monk, stay. He doesn't care, you seen one flag, you seen em all, but it has to be sunny.

vertical line I forgot to look at the monks prayer flags on the way home from work, but they had worked last night in that another nurse volunteered to pick up one of my heavy patients leaving me with a lighter load.

vertical line Had an interesting thought, about interactions and karma, feeling like I have died to so much. All I do, each event I meet, is there to take care with, to open to the possibility of complete union. Strong vibe on top, back, right side of head. Cold, blue sky, windy day, walking prayer, sore right foot.

vertical line Tootsie Pop wrappers make nice flags, strung together, now I have to iron them flat. Ginger chew paper wrappers will make something too, not just trash, a large batch was given free to me. Everything touched in the same way has additional value. 

May call the monk tomorrow.
