Orgone Energy! It does the mind and planet good.

Making Orgonite makes work a form of play.

For the past few years, my beloved LIsa and I have been making Orgonite and Orgone generators. The terms are somewhat synonymous with each other, but they are intact different. Regardless, we are pleased and excited to hold a class that's open for the public. For a fee of course, but you know what I mean. I say it's good for both the planet and the mind because making the stuff puts us into our creative mode. Making the stuff is simple enough, really, all you have to do is pour some resin into a mold with some metal shavings and your done, but more often than not, people spend lots of time and money putting in other things like crystals and different kinds of metals and so on to make them look certain ways. Make them pretty, intriguing, fun.

To me this is a necessary part of life, just like exercise, food and sleep. We need to be artists and vent our insides of/from all that stuff that gets locked up in there. Making art helps our soul to dance and spread it's wings. Luckily, Making Orgone generators is a messy and imprecise activity. So much so that no matter what you do, it will probably look interesting and will be marveled at by anyone who looks at it. They may question what the heck it is, but it will still touch them and they will still be effected by the work it does simply by being in it's proximity. If you're interested in taking the class, let me know soon. We're filling up fast.

In breath and heart!

The Tantric Heart needs to beat a little faster...

New Moon in April and the 30 minute rule...

OK! New moon is coming up and having been on this planet for  a while, by body is beginning to show some "patina". Actually, here, I'm not talking about the wrinkles or hair and such. I'm talking about the internal patinas that happen, like my knee that's been bothering me for two days now and other various other medical issues that have been guiding me towards my own advice… namely, my own 30 minute rule.

My health coach is wonderful! I've reluctantly started talking to one because my job/insurance program has started something new and it saves me money (or should I say, saves them money) to do so. Anyway, at first, I was frustrated because most of the coaches sounded like they were simply reading flash cards and giving stock information. Then one day, I picked up the phone and this one was on the line. This one, I could actually have arguments with, let alone meaningful conversations. I enjoyed talking to her. HA! Someone who was paid to actually listen to me whine and complain without shame or guilt! I loved it. The only thing is that she constantly pushes me towards doing better with my health.

Now my issue is, "Do I really want to do what I say I need to do for myself?" See, I'm naturally lazy. The idea of exercise, although it's a totally virtuous activity, threatens my very core nature. My answer is a disgruntled "yes". 

So now, that means that for 30 minutes a day, I have to sweat and/or be consciously doing something to better myself. So, after the phone call, I went straight to the kitchen and finished the desert I was preparing and ate it like it was my last drink on a Fat Tuesday night and did what I had to do. I walked into the weight room at work, and put in my 30 minutes. Yesterday, I went for a walk with the intention of taking pictures but my timing wasn't right for it. The walk was good, an hour, but it was too soon, early, cold and wet for the spring flowers beginning to show their faces.. Blood root, Mayapple, Trillium, some kind of Lilly, I think.. Now for today. What will I do? What will I do?

I love minutia but I don't always have the best of luck with my macro lens. Focus is so specific, and my own eyesight isn't the best. Still I love taking the pictures and being there to see what beauty we have around us. 

In breath and heart,

Martin

The Tantric Heart

The Tantric Heart

Practice opening your heart to every experience you have and your reaction to it. Practice opening your heart in every action you take. Practice opening your heart whenever you think of yourself as you are. Practice opening your heart to all that is unknown to you. Then share your open heart as much as you can. Your heart will be the teacher.

Although I've studied "Tantra", I could never consider myself any kind of expert or master. I don't want to. That's my heart's job. What I want to do in my life, is open my heart to all that I experience and my reaction to it. All I want to do is to share myself with an open heart and love myself when I can't.

My joy comes from watching and helping others do the same. If I can help that happen, then I've done my job.

 

 

Mother's caress

Mother's caress is like a molecule. It makes everything what it is but it has no real substance of its own. Doesn't need it. Mother's caress is like the energy holding the molecule's atoms together and deciding how many protons, neutrons, and electrons there will be in this one and that one. Just like when she was putting together the recipe for dinner or knitting the yarns to make the scarf. Mother's caress is so much more than the scarf alone, it was the time and love it took to make the scarf, to buy the yarn, etc. Multiply that into billions and billions and you've arrived back to the molecules. Mother's caress is an all pervading energy of love. My objective is to always remain in conscious contact with Mother's caress, to "sit in her lap". I do that by working as hard as I can to always having a home for her in my heart. As long as she resides in my heart, I will enjoy the sweet touch of Mother's caress.

The purpose behind the symbology of "Sitting in Mother's lap and feeling her caress" is alchemical. If I can make every experience tantamount to being caressed by the Divine Mother then I know that I am surrounded by love. That everything is Mother's loving embrace. If I can envision this then anything that happens to me can be transmuted into something beautiful. I can find gratitude in all life's experiences, painful or pleasant. It gives me the courage to step up to the next experience to see what Mother's embrace will be like this time and the next…

Having her in my heart drives home, for me, the idea that there is no difference between that which is within and that which is without.. "As above, so below." To hold the universe in my heart shows me the irreverence of size and time and sense and such.. All there is is love, really. 

In breath and heart,

Martin

today

Aloha! I'm excited to see my site go public even though its in need of some completion. I accept it as it is. I was making my eyes blurry working on it all day and night. I want it to happen in a healthy, loving way. Feeling the weather change is so nice. I've never been one for the cold. This summer is supposed to be one of planting trees. I'm looking forward to that. 

I'm so glad you've taken a moment to read this little note (my first one). I will put more here in time. In celebration, I'll leave you with a view of the ocean from the coast  just north of San Francisco.

Mahalo
