Birth painting for Caroling, age 77

geodeI had hoped for a day of synthesis and simplicity on this 77th birth day. But what I got is a day of inclusion yet no painting. I modify the hope to extend another year to December 21, 2012. The meditative countdown started on December 17 with day-long meditation, continued on the 18th with sunrise meditation, focused on the Mayan Calendar and Rainbow Bridge, found a crystal geode, and walked a labyrinth. I'm looking at the forest in the picture above. I get a mystical insight feeling looking into the branches beyond. See Full Screen Into the Forest.

ECMS day-long silent meditation

December 17. See the schedule here. Some notes:
Meditation 1, going to sleep, nodding off to right. Noticed uneven looking to right, but not later. I thought Nancy had forgotten the time, it seemed forever. Or rather like 50 rather than 30 minutes.

Med 2, nodded off even worse. {Next day I asked nancy if it had bothered her and she hadn't noticed it.} Breathing as unity.{This means that there is no breath out, only rhymatic alternating curent, breathing in here and there.} On walk, it had rained and sun came out just as we got back.

Med 3, not so sleepy. Felt a noosphere guidance of non-vibration. A steadying (something, entering?) without constraint or sharp lines. Don led yoga. Alt nostril breathing count: in 4, hold 2, out 6, hold 2. Other side: in 4, hold 2, out 6, hold 2. Lunch was wonderful.

Med 4, felt was actively doing something, but what was it? I read the Rainbow Bridge Visualization to the people leaving and wow it sounds complex. I realized that I'm just now catching on.

Med 6 was painful. Bottoms of my feet had hurt before but now back and seat both hurt. Whole bra area and sitz bones. Sat in the blue canvas chair with meditation cushion or yoga pad folded up in it. That fixed feet and seat but was uncomfortable for bent legs. Also I didn't feel stable.

Med 7, kept falling asleep about 5 times. Violent jerk to keep myself from falling over. I drank coffee at every break. Couldn't get a whole cup in and sometimes just ¼ cup. About the fruit, astonishing. the papaya or red soft fruit just dissolved in my mouth. The pineapple was piercingly sour, fibrous and demanded lots of chewing. Each piece was like mountain climbing, a feared adventure. Afterwards, telling Nancy about it, I realized my senses were sharpened and my experiences had become unnaturally intense. She didn't find anything intense about the pineapple. Or notice anything special about the fruit.

Med 8, the last meditation was instantaneously of the heart, intensity, love. Was it Sandy and Ron? The invigorating effect of tea and fruit? Hallucinating started with a blink, maybe a bar of light to right of vision. Then little points of light but it seemed to me like holes in vision. Terrified that by all the caffeine and sort of staring unfocusedly all day that I was tearing my eyes up. Then wondered what if this is transformation and by fearing it, I stopped it. I can't remember what else except I think blue light played a large part. It was like hallucinating rather than envisioning. Definite difference there I can tell.

In closing, I read the Rainbow Bridge visualization tips again. Some Baha'i followers said their scripture says the time of transformation is now.

Sunrise meditation

December 18. Leave at 5:45 a.m., get there at 6, start meditating at 6:15, sunrise at 6:35, end 6:45.

The sun, when I glanced up, was warming up the horizon, promising gold, but not yet visible. I looked down for a moment. When I looked up again, there was the sun, too round and bright to look at. So again, I missed the first peep, which Nancy caught.  Too cold to even get the camera out. At the end a circle of birds were out in the gulf, drifting west, maybe with the wind, or the fish they were flickering after. And a half moon like an albino lemon slice up high in the south. Kept this #*#@% Beatles song playing, will you still love me, will you still need me when I'm 64. Doodley doo, silly, peppy jingle music in my head. I'm taking responsibility for being the player but it didn't seem like me at the time. I tried and tried to turn it off. Talked to it. Tried to listen to actuality of the beach.

Nancy was aware of all times, like when exactly the sun came up. She wrote a haiku:

We sat on the beach

Special moment

The sun came up

Nothing special

Solstice Meditation Group MEETUP

The Meetup page for this event is gone: Wednesday, December 21, 2011, 5:15 PM

Unity of Panama City 1764 Lisenby Avenue, Panama City, FL. This is what actually happened.

In honor of the Winter Solstice Sherron Belk arranged a special event. We met in the Unity Church in Panama City. Sherron gave a short presentation on the significance of the labyrinth and winter solstice. She handed out light wands to carry. Outside Brian Skoskie played the flute, there was a large bonfire and a small waterfall. We then walked the labyrinth, which was lighted with tea candles. When reaching the center, we went straight to form a circle around the outer edge and sang, "Let There Be Peace in the World and Let it Begin With Me." We filed back to the center of the labyrinth to complete the walk back out. Inside the church, Dawn Brooks led Metta Meditation.

On the evening of the solstice, December 21, 2011, the Panama City Meditation Meetup group gathered at Unity Church to walk the labyrinth, sing and afterwards, to do a guided Metta meditation. To the flute, candlelight, inspirational words, bonfire, waterfall and flowers, I added what came to me that day: a geode crystal, deer lichen and wreath. This 1.5-minute movie is my remembrance and greeting to friends.

Solstice Time

11:30 p.m. CST December 21 (Universal Time: 5:30 p.m. December 22)
