I thought I was bored.
Forms arise. Forms dissipate.

I drew a Tarot card today from my Osho deck.
This is the card I drew and what the commentary says about the card.
2 of Fire: Possibilities
The eagle has an overview of all the possibilities contained in the landscape below, as he flies freely, naturally and effortlessly through the sky. He is really in his domain, very grand and self-contained.
This card indicates that you are at a point where a world of possibilities is open to you. Because you have grown more loving towards yourself, more self-contained, you can work easily with others. Because you are relaxed and at ease, you can recognize possibilities as they present themselves, sometimes even before others can see them. Because you are in tune with your own nature, you understand that existence is providing you with exactly what you need. Enjoy the flight! And celebrate all the varied wonders of the landscape spread before you.Mind can accept any boundary anywhere. But the reality is that, by its very nature, existence cannot have any boundary, because what will be beyond the boundary?–again another sky.
That’s why I am saying skies upon skies are available for your flight. Don’t be content easily. Those who remain content easily remain small: small are their joys, small are their ecstasies, small are their silences, small is their being. But there is no need! This smallness is your own imposition upon your freedom, upon your unlimited possibilities, upon your unlimited potential.
Osho Live Zen, Chapter 2
What do I think about the meaning?
It reminds me that my mobile lifestyle provides amazing possibilities to explore, learn, grow, change, and…. So many possibilities….
It also reminds me that this day is pregnant with possibilities if I join the dance and play. I dare not fear appearances. That fear causes contraction and contraction limits possibilities.
It also brings to mind a couple of songs.
Have a magical day!

Hatfield Knob Elk Viewing Tower is located at the Sundquist Unit of the North Cumberland Wildlife Management Area in Campbell County in East Tennessee.
Between 2000 and 2008, 201 elk were released by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) on the Royal Blue and Sundquist Wildlife Management Areas. The most TWRA surveys now place the number of elk at around 600.
I didn’t see any elk while I was at the viewing tower. However on the walk back to the jeep I saw two in the woods. The only reason I noticed them was the amount of noise they made. They were not being stealthy at all. I could not get good pictures because of the trees and undergrowth blocking the shots.

One reason I tow a Jeep Wrangler is to go off the pavement exploring. This day I took advantage of some of the vehicle trails in Norris State Park.
I wasn’t able to find out what these rock troughs were for but I still working on it.
An underwater bridge
This was a good road to take.
This trail was a mistake. I got stuck for a while. I finally managed to wiggle my way loose. I turned around and came back. Later I discovered this was a horse trail, not a vehicle trail.

As I often do, I’m out walking around. All of a sudden I notice this slight ringing in my ears. I keep walking. It seems to get louder and fade and get louder and fade. Without success, I try to locate a source for the tone. I sit on a bench in the shade to evaluate things. It’s becoming a painful ringing. I muffle my ears, no luck. hmmm I decide to go back in the AC and hope it goes away. I’m contemplating going to urgent care if it isn’t gone by tomorrow. Walking back to my RV I see a new camper adjusting his satellite dish. I notice the sound changes when he moves the dish. roflma It is louder the worse the signal is. When it stops, it’s aligned. Wasn’t me at all. hahahaha

So I’m out taking a evening walk and my negative self talk says:
“What a loser. No one could love you. Here you are out here alone again. You’re so miserable doing all this by yourself. You’ll always be alone. You’re fat. You’re old. You’re gross. You’re ugly. Give up.”
I was smiling while watching my mind do all this and decided to blog it. Weird what the mind says sometimes. Glad I know it’s not me. I just laughed at my mind and went on with my walk.
Mindfulness isn’t something you do. It is something you are.
