What meditation can be like (Eat, Pray, Love) alvin June 19, 2019 - 9:25am

In “Eat, Pray, Love,” Elizabeth Gilbert describes what meditation can be like. :)

The Trees, Rush

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples
And they’re quite convinced they’re right
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light.

But the oaks can’t help their feelings
If they like the way they’re made
And they wonder why the maples
Can’t be happy in their shade?

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream “Oppression!”
And the oaks just shake their heads.

~ from The Trees, by Rush

Sinner’s Prayer lyrics (song by Sully Erna)

To love the right,
Yet do so wrong.

To be the weak,
Yet burn to be so strong.

Go rider, although your ride has been through lies.
Go rider, see your soul through the devil’s eyes.

The Moose Is Back t-shirt

Right after I left Colorado ~3 weeks ago, I received a message that a package had arrived for me. I wasn’t expecting anything, so all I could think was that maybe the Nuts On Clark people had sent me a gift to apologize for a recent messed-up order.

I got back in Colorado last night, and when I walked to the front office today I found this “The Moose Is Back” t-shirt, which is an even better surprise than the free popcorn might have been. :)
