29 Nov 2017 Todays meditations and GLOW – Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (Netflix and film)

Hello to you. Today was interesting. It was basically a day long active meditation. Some of the issues that came up have come up for me many times before but felt still unresolved. At first I had the World map out, statues, crystals, replicas I’ve collected from places I’ve visited around the world. It felt like some sort of subconscious board game was being played out. This isn’t anything new for me. The last time it happened in the house. Ultimately this ends up being a great way for our knick-knacks to actually have a purpose and this activity makes cleaning them more interesting…enjoyable. It may seem an unusual way to meditate but it works for me.  Some people sit still, close their eyes and focus on their breathing….I do this.

At one point I brought out some Tarot cards I had made a few years ago and something interesting happened with that. I had placed several cards on a drawing representing Spiritual Checks and Balances. Then all the sudden a gust of wind like an unseen hand came and blew all but a couple out of the drawing and into the yard. I had to laugh to myself a bit. I can remember picking up the cards and thinking as I looked at the sun, “So you are paying attention!” The cards I was left with were interesting; the High Priestess, Temperance, the Ace of Swords and the King of Swords.

According to the book I have, Tarot for Beginners by P Scott Hollander (2006), these cards are pretty accurate to the context of the drawing beneath them:

High Priestess: Divine Wisdom; enlightenment. Understanding of (or the need to understand) the reasons things work the way they do.

Temperance: Patience, self-control, willingness to learn understanding.

King of Swords: The Kind of Swords is a man of authority and power, often in his own right, and certainly in the terms of the querent’s personal or professional life. He is someone accustomed to giving orders and seeing to it that they are obeyed. The querent will see him as someone whose motives are not always clear; he sometimes seems a powerful ally and at other times an unscrupulous enemy. Be warned, however, that whatever this man says or does he is out to forward his own interests first, and will ride roughshod over anyone who gets in his way. This is a man who sits in judgement, both of situations and of those under his authority.

Ace of Swords: A card of triumph, in an almost excessive degree. It carries with it the concept of triumph by force: physical force, force of will, force of position or circumstances.

Anyhew…changing gears:

Today we finished watching another fantastic Netflix series called GLOW – Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. We watched the movie about the real wrestlers last night….tears were shed! Emily Dole aka Mt Fiji just stole our hearts! I have a funny memory about GLOW. I can remember my parents coming to visit my ex-husband and I in our little crappy apartment in California. We had the show on when they came in and my Mom was like, “Can you please turn that off ?!” She didn’t want Dad watching it lol. My Dad and I used to watch the male wrestlers all the time. I used to crack up watching him and my Grandpa (his Dad) watching wrestling as they would jerk around like they were the ones actually in the ring!

Anyhew – great writing, great casting, great acting, great sets, great costumes…..just so well done! We had to fight the urge to binge watch it!

One of our favorite lines by character Sam Sylvia:

“Oh Christ. Crying, Caring, the desperation. That, that’s what make syou unbearable. Look, I don’t like you Strindberg. Take that in. Hold on to it. Try not giving a fuck. There’s a lot of power in that. (Sam approaches the car) And relax. The devil gets all the best lines.”

The lyrics to the song resonate very strongly to our current times!  When Kyle and I heard it watching the last episode we both got goosebumps!

Invincible

This bloody road remains a mystery
This sudden darkness fills the air
What are we waiting for?
Won’t anybody help us?
What are we waiting for?

We can’t afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

This shattered dream you cannot justify
We’re gonna scream until we’re satisfied
What are we running for?
We’ve got the right to be angry
What are we running for?
When there’s no where we can run to anymore

We can’t afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible
And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

Won’t anybody help us?
What are we running for?
When there’s no where, no where we can run to anymore

We can’t afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

And with the power of conviction
There is no sacrifice
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

We can’t afford to be innocent (yeah)
Stand up and face the enemy (yeah)
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible

We can’t afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It’s a do or die situation
We will be invincible
