Luck & Guided Meditation

I do believe in luck, but mostly I believe in Karma. That and my firm belief in not only heaven and hell but purgatory as well is the only thing that stops me from carrying around a machete or AK.

I used to work at a high end furniture store. It was the upper echelon of furniture stores; old-money type crap that was over the top opulent and came with a very hefty price tag. The interior designers/sales force went on a rotation for clients. In other words whoever was up next got the next people in the door pretty much no matter who it was. Unless it was something like a delivery or bathroom necessity.

There was one designer; older married rico-suave gentlemen that reinforced how I saw luck/karma. He was nice…. but he was also a bit unscrupulous. At least in his personal dealings. From what I had heard he had just come out of an affair with a married co-worker and now had his eyes on a very young assistant designer. He seemed to be well on the way to that conquest.

Inevitably, and I saw this happen day after day; he would get the worst “ups”. One day it would be a group of giggling teenagers wanting to get out of the heat. Another day a person would start working with him and then want to switch to work at another store or another designer. He had the worst sales record and I could see him hustle. It was not for lack of trying. He was also charming and impeccable groomed always.

But luck/karma seemed to always slap him around…. from what I saw. I remember seeing him fume and protest and I couldn’t help but muffle a laugh. After weeks and months of this I realized that not only was this guy not going to make it (because of high sales quotas) but that it absolutely did not seem coincidental. Even from my rudimentary vantage it seemed orchestrated by forces beyond my simple comprehension.

I got this text from a friend tonight and it made me think of luck and Karma. The Buddhist believe you can step outside the realm of Karma. I know from having had an extraordinary experience of this once that this is true but I also think it requires a force few of us know how to tap into. It is a spiritual level most of us never achieve.

Here is the exchange I had. Unfortunately this mad genius of a friend has been caught up in the madness of drugs. So I never quite know if it’s over my head brilliancy or if it’s just gibberish. Having had many deep conversations about things outside the realm of everyday life I usually tend to give him the benefit of the doubt. Usually our conversations leave me with more unanswered questions than when we started though. Judge for yourself.

I love the line about a daily battle with the universe.

For some reason I can’t get the word preternatural out of my head.

I did this great meditation tonight I wanted to share. I found it very grounding. I don’t know if it could possibly trigger PTSD with people with spatial issues. I have a very good imagination so to me visualization comes very naturally and by far this was one of the easiest, fastest, deeply felt meditations I’ve done in a long time. Hope you enjoy!

Close your eyes and breath deeply. Feel your body. Feel the rhythm of your breath as it flows in and out of you. Give in to all the sensations your body is feeling. (In this case I was naked on the bed so I’ll go with that). Feel the edges of your body. Feel the inside organs, your heart beating. Now say to yourself “here I am. In this body. In this moment. At this exact time. This is my experience. This is my life. This is me.” (Or something like this.)

Breath deep and take it all in. Try to stay in the physical realm of the experience and not emotional. In other words try to get out of your emotions and thoughts and into the sensations of your body. Once you have a good sense of your body widen your perception. “Here I am on this bed” clearly visualize the bed… “in this room” visualize the room as if you’re floating above your body now.

“In this house…. on this street”.

Clearly visualize the house and the street and yourself on the bed in this room of this house (or wherever you are).

In this town

In this county

In this state

And as you think this circle out as if looking at yourself from a birds view to a map view and out further and further.

In this country

On this continent

In this hemisphere

On this planet

Circled by the moon

Circling the sun

With these planets and stars

In this solar system

In this galaxy

In this universe

Now

So far removed from your physical body that our galaxy is a mere speck of dust as your consciousness floats far out into space. Where you almost disappear completely.

Then slowly come back in. Towards our galaxy. Into our solar system. Towards our planet. Into the right hemisphere. Onto the continent. Into the country. The state. The county. The city. The street. The house. The room the bed and back into your body. Into your singular experience of living this life. Right now. Here. Breath deeply.

Welcome to your life!

I have always enjoyed reading and writing. Maybe because I have always been on the quiet and reclusive side; which most people may not guess at first glance or if seeing me in a social setting, especially around people I am comfortable with but it’s also not something I have an issue with. I need solitude to recharge. Writing gives me the peace and time to renew myself...here that is offered to you for your enjoyment and pleasure as well. I hope. Lol

    1. Lol. No. Higher even. Ridiculously high. Like $26k for a bed high. I remember seeing some of the invoices and scratching my head. It was owned by a turmoiled Jewish family. They went out of business during the last housing bubble issue.

      1. Maybe. I think it was a combination of many factors. One of which was also that the three main business owners were getting older and probably wanting to retire. The main owner has two sons. One was the black sheep (people said he was dense; I didn’t know him well enough) the other was a drug abuser. The owners never really trained anyone to take over the business. A hostile takeover ensued by the drugged out son and that along with the economic collapse just killed a very lucrative business.

        Truthfully at the time leaving a hole in the furniture market for the top percenters. Fortunately other companies swooped right in. So those poor rich people with way too much money to spend still have somewhere to go. No cause for alarm. Lol

    1. Right?

      You poor thing though. I can’t imagine having been rich and then not being rich.

      It’s one thing to want it and never have it but to have tasted it and then have it taken away. That’s gotta hurt.

      Aghhhh. Live and learn. Money ain’t everything though. As long as you have your basics covered and enough health and spare change to enjoy some of the things you love…. you’re blessed!! ❤️💋

      1. ..twas a devastating kick to the junk for sure. I am blessed though, now that I have the PTSD/Depression under control, I will be coming up to bat again. And I have a few good swings left.
