August 21, 2022 (Part 2) - Who's The Stage Director Here? -
While starting his personal "chef" production for the day - this Blog-writer didn't immediately see his chef knife and decided to check the other kitchen, went there, didn't see it there as well but before leaving he attended to some house-keeping and upon leaving noticed a certain plastic tote moved to beside the recycling bin and went to check out why. he discovered it was breaking down and decided it could be left there. Then he checked the contents of the blue bin and saw items not acceptable by the City (including a hat) and removed them, transferring them to the trash bin. At that moment a "fellow gardener" appeared and this blog-writer reported what he had just did with regards to the bins. In pointing out the items the "fellow gardener" recognized his hat and took it!
(Some conversation entailed about this mystery as to why the hat went out of the house and into the recycling bin.)
Back in the first kitchen this blog-writer saw his chef knife and was about to return to his "production" while his mind reviewed the sequence of events that had just occurred (and presented here) when he suddenly exclaimed: "Who's The Stage Director Here?!"
August 21, 2022 - Higher Consciousness Through Contemplating Beauty -
In reading: “A New Earth” (at 11:50 PM, Saturday, August 20, 2022) - "... Jesus tells us to contemplate the flowers and learn from then how to live. The Buddha is said to have given a “silent sermon” once during which he held up a flower and gazed at it. After awhile, one of those present, a monk called Mahakasyapa, began to smile. He is said to have been the only one who had understood the sermon. According to legend, that smile (that is to say, realization) was handed down by twenty eight successive masters and much later became the origin of Zen. Seeing beauty in a flower could awaken humans, …”
Sent a message to a fellow gardener with the above (at 12:21 AM on Sunday, the 21st). We’ll see if this is the start of a conversation on this subject matter!
June 14, 2022 - "Human beings possess a spirit, a soul, a mind, a heart, a will and a physical body, and their greatest difficulty is to get them all in tune."
(This Blog-writer previously wrote a note this morning about "True Yoga" and this quote of Omraam speaks to that! ; ~ )
"Until humans succeed, until they can create unity within themselves, they will never be strong and powerful. One of the aims of an initiatic school is to teach us to bring about this unity, to make all our activities and faculties converge toward one point. Whether it be our soul, our spirit, our mind, our heart, our stomach or our sexual organs, the goal we give to each of them must be the perfection and enlightenment of our entire being. Once each of us has attained this unity, we can all concentrate on light together in order to produce beneficial effects for the whole world."
Comment: In light of the preceding post (of the 2nd - following) might "this unity" be required in order for individuals to be able to manage composting - especially if it is a house chore? .........
This bLog-writer presents this potential contemplation in further light of the fact that he also had extensively noted this morning that a three-day intensive may be needed for people to become more conscious of their unity with nature.
June 2, 2022 - On Composting -
“Compost is where and how
the art of community begins and ends.
Without (inner and outer) composting,
the life of community cannot access
the hidden nutrients needed for renewal.”
By a fellow enchanted zen gardener.

"... Not everything is worth attuning to.
Some things, people, and collaborations are just meant to distract us.
Not everyone deserves respect, especially if they disrespect us through interference and sabotage.
And some people truly do deserve our respect and are capable of taking individual responsibility.
This is about attuning to harmonious situations and relationships in beneficial ways. But also, we need to defend our own security and healthy interest first.
This is the quarter from manifestation, and this year's energies for it are quite fortunate to manifest and to attract what we need to make our contribution. ..."
Posted under this particular Blog headline as it largely harmonizes with a "Zen" approach within the "gardens" of the social sphere.

"In order for human beings not to clash with each other, they must share the same ideal and travel together towards a single and infinitely distant goal. Harmony will never reign among human beings unless they are united in the desire to serve the Lord, to make straight his paths and to work for the great family of the Universal White Brotherhood. Only when they have this common ideal will they understand and love each other, because then they will be like the radii of a circle converging towards the one center. A circle is the image of a perfect organism whose head is the center and whose different limbs and organs are the radii that converge towards this center. - Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov

In a conversation with "my most active fellow gardener" [in response to his acknowledgement regarding the "Opportunist" (Human Design Profile) to which this writer added gratitude for that knowledge as it support a shift in perspective and allowed a withdrawal of a projection of "community" in a direction where it would be like "casting pearls before swine"] he responded further with certain sage wisdom about two general approached to community. One is "Cheap Rent". The other is a collective sharing of external needs.
About a half hour later this blog writer realized that these two diametrically opposed approaches had been the case throughout his whole entire thirteen years of observation in this "Onion". This writer arrived at "The Onion" with enthusiasm for a greater experience of the second approach to community and the possibility of a healthy community spirit that might emerge through the process of actually working together! (However, the spirit of "cheap rent" held sway! ; ~ )

A former fellow "gardener" (more residing than actually gardening) revisited our gardens a number of weeks ago and originated the phrase "Enchanted Zen Gardens". I conferred with my most active fellow gardener and he agreed that a Zen garden can be enchanting.
Inspired on Thursday, September 2, 2021 with the following:
"Small" is beautiful ~
Especially in his enchanted Zen gardens!
