When your car has a wobble or drifts to the side, it is not the fault of the road. You need an adjustment to get in alignment with the Road of Life. And what is a Tom Cat Fight? Find this Buddha in your landfill today.
How can we awaken the Power of Intention? We can turn to Tom Brady in the Super Bowl and getting the wobble taken out of your wheels as a metaphorical pointer. Intention creates the world in which we live. If your intention is heartfelt it is in alignment with life itself, and Life will work with you as your friend. If your intention is from the mind, you create a divided world in which you are in conflict. It’s as simple as that. The path to awakening Heart Felt Intention is to see the obstacles in the mind to this road.
This was my first Live talk. It was live on my timeline and I’m transferring it here with the screen flipped because during the broadcast it was showing a reversed white board. This is how I used the reversed image as a metaphor for our own Narcissism.
The Buddha Moon is any metaphor or event that creates an inner poem that nourishes you like a time release capsule. A world without Buddha Moons is a wasteland or a landfill. We must find Buddhas in our landfill every day. One can do this by the practice of meditation that gradually empties your mind of trash. The landfill looks like a dump, but the refuse in is the everyday mind that is filled with yesterday’s stuff. Throw it out. Dump it out. Clear the Eye for the Buddha.
The Alchemists in the Middle Ages searched for the Philosopher’s Stone that would turn base metal into gold. We are all searching for that stone that will turn something useless into something useful. I call it the MacGyver Principle where you redefine something lying around to a new use to get your out of a fix. When you are in a landfill—the landfill is a metaphor for a world all locked up with set definitions—everything is already named. Adam has just named everything and there are no more frontiers, no more new things to discover, so everything just gets recycled like cars in Cuba. That’s the feeling of being in a wasteland, in a marriage that has no romance, in a job that has no future, or a town that knows your name. The Buddha Stone and the Landfill are the stories if put on youtube here, stories of how you can find a Buddha in your Landfill.
