8.8.2020 The Lion's Gate


"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.

Don’t go back to sleep.

You must ask for what you really want.

Don’t go back to sleep.

People are going back and forth across the door sill

Where the two worlds touch.

The door is round and open.

Don’t go back to sleep"

~ Rumi


don't go back to sleep...

When the Lion's Gate is Open.


Is this what Rumi is getting at?

because I literally couldn't go back to sleep because Hurrican Isaias hit us hard and everyone ran their generators and chain saws for FIVE SOLID DAYS... truth be told they are still going. Then they decided to rip up the street in front of my shop door.....So I decided I needed to awake.


Like Buddhist AWAKE and get the fuck out of town and tune into "me" in a big way.

FYI: This blog is a work in progress as I have arrived at the retreat center MENLA in the Glorious Catskill Mountains to escape the noise and chaos. 

 Here I go through the portal... unplugging after being forceably unplugged.

I drove two hours, the clouds led me here, I checked in set up my shrine, and no sooner did five wild turkeys walk past my view.


I feel like things are about to shake up for me, 

but not before I take my own sacred pause.


to be continued.
