Sunday Sundries

8/15/2021 When getting lost is the point

“I had considered the phrasing in the past when working on gate(less) and I have been keeping the Rebecca Solnit quote in my mind a great deal lately — Antero Alli in his masterwork ‘The Eight Circuit Brain’ recommends ‘getting lost’ to explore the biosurvival circuit — And it’s certainly one reason to sit zazen first thing in the morning — Here’s the infamous ‘alley between the docks’ where I drink my coffee on good mornings — Getting lost sometimes is as simple as this”
“Getting lost is easy we do it all the time — Sunday Sundries is supposed to be about you not me — But lost in my thoughts I made it about me — So, then, choosing to get lost consciously as Meg did by eschewing the App — is a very different thing — something we all need in order to live”
“If I may attempt to reorient this from me to you via thou — How will we get lost today, tomorrow, and for the rest of our lives? — What will you say to the One you find there?”

Well, y’all, that’s it for today, highly recommend Meg’s substack:

And, of course, Antero Alli is always a good guide to the territory right on the other side of the map:

Psst pass it on
