The last week of the year

Take some time before the new year even starts to take stock and reflect on the past year. Take a breath and exhale last year. Instead of a resolution, re-solve what is incomplete. Shining awareness here will open new possibilities.

This is a sober approach to the New Year before the champagne, so you don’t drag the old stuff with you! Instead of just hoping that things will be different or better, sit with yourself and reflect on the past year. It can be brief.

Take this opportunity, while the whole world is positioning itself, to acknowledge and remember where you’ve been, what worked, and where you realize you can do better. There may be many little things that you forgot to celebrate. You are looking at this as an observer so no judgement. With this commitment you will land right into the present moment. Just be with it all as it is. It’s like remembering scenes from a movie that you were in, and now you are watching.

Certainly write down what needs completion. You are facing yourself, and it’s very grounding. Alleviate the overwhelm and pressure of looking ahead by giving this practice its due. It’s a simple task that helps you find your own rhythm. What comes naturally is what you want to experience next year, and you can schedule and be on your way.

You can share some insights with your partner if you’d like, and see what is motivating both of you for the next year. That can be a courageous conversation.

As I did this I sat with anything that was troubling me so I could get a better perspective. So be done with it all, breath out and let go.

Next: Ways to structure the year

When pursuing leads nowhere..Part two of the Divine Feminine

Taken from Osho’s October newsletter on women:

Recently, Satya Nadella, the new Microsoft CEO, created a storm among working women with his casual statement at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing: “It’s not really about asking for the raise, but knowing and having faith that the system will give you the right raises as you go along.…”

There was uproar among women in the Microsoft Corporation, who are paid overall 78% of what equally qualified men received, and all over the U.S. there were many comments and tweets condemning Nadella’s chauvinistic attitude. This remark in TIME magazine represents the bitterness of all women regarding the gender bias: “Smile pretty and don’t be so unbecoming as to ask for a salary bump. After all, a raise is a lot like a male suitor, and if you pursue it, you might just drive it away.”

When I read this, I had been writing about the divine feminine. I don’t know if a statement has ever felt so nauseating. I don’t feel it’s in the nature of women to pursue. It’s unnatural, and demonstrative of how completely out of whack it all is. It did propel me to look at where I’ve been in this kind of pursuit.  It just makes me shake my head. I can see the pursuit in my own family.

This fall I went to an art studio of a very established older male painter. My friend had worked with him, and she thought that maybe they needed more help on the sales floor and that I may be a good fit there. I went in and I walked through the gallery attempting to take in his work. I finally rounded a corner where only a few paintings were on the wall and there I sat. I began to experience a power in the work. I watched a video about his process. All very inspiring. I then was approached by the head coordinator, a female, and she and I connected beautifully. We walked out toward the painting studio where I met the artist, and something very surprising happened. I started to shift. It was so quick, almost imperceptible. The meeting place of our two energies, took me directly to a role of myself that I knew very well, that I suppose I used as a woman.  But I was watching it. This hadn’t happened in so long. I got such a read on how he was with women, and an even more important read how I had a deep pattern, a created character like Marilyn Monroe, to directly give this guy energy, give him what he wanted. To me this is the pursuit.

My parents were born in the early 20’s, and were very non traditional. I was in constant debate with my father growing up. We challenged each other. I felt completely safe in doing so. Now my mother used to hear from her mother that women were to be seen and not heard. I am one person removed from this attitude.

All I can really say is it is an interesting time to be female. To be anything for that matter. We are busting through stereotypes as fast as we can.  Shedding skins, breathing into personal freedom, longing to be true. I respect the giants of Feminism. I am doing my best to stare this cosmic joke right in the face.  It is deeper than any of us can truly comprehend. To have to defend women on any level is beyond ludicrous. Onward.

The Last Boomers 1961-1964

The last of the baby boomers turn 50 this month. I have always been fascinated by the generation I was born into, and never knew what it was called, if indeed it was part of the boomers. I am inspired to write about us after reading an article by P.J. O’Rourke. He finds us a bit mysterious, that our part remains quietly obscure. We have seen a lot, and are not sure about commitment. We came of age when deregulation began, and divorce more common- many of us didn’t have kids. We are often living contradictions, not easily impressed, with an inherent sense of rebellion as well as spirituality.

Reincarnated Monks

I met and hung out with a Tibetan monk in the 90’s in the East Village. I adored this little guy yet don’t remember his name. We used to bop around and I was invited to meditation gatherings at his apartment just a few blocks up from mine. He told me that many born between 1961 and 1964 in the States are reincarnated monks. That felt accurate. For myself, and many friends born around the same time. These brilliant seekers kinda in the world who carry a deep longing for something that they themselves aren’t even sure about. Fellow last boomer David Fincher has directed some of the best movies in observation of the illusion of life. The Game, Fight Club, Benjamin Button, and even House of Cards. At least he’s out there with his work. It’s time for the rest of us to come out of hiding.

Some signs of the Last Boomers:

We’ve seen loss, know that nothing is stable, get the illusion better than most, are spiritual without denomination, don’t like to be labeled or pigeon-holed, better yet don’t want to be pressed to commit- we need exit strategies, maybe even those with kids still have a deep desire to be free, have held back, would prefer to live in a monastery but don’t, are watchful, extremely creative, full of wisdom, and have always been looking for the perfect place to live- a Shangri-la.

My siblings are part of the early boomer phase. Many have seemed to be more cause orientated.

Their platform has always seemed more clear, and I along for the ride. On the way to a hiking trail I was with my brother and his friend of the same age, both earlier boomers, while I in the backseat took in their conversation as they spoke of  climate change on the planet and wanting to be off the grid. Although I strongly related to what they were talking about and want to do just that, I feel an almost required duty to be in the world and relevant. Here’s a picture of my brother and his friend as we walked on the Appalachian Trail. The two of them met in Nepal years ago.

Here’s to the boomers!

It’s Tower time

One of my favorite stories of all time.  The champion, Seabiscuit, who finally found his stride. It took an unlikely team of misfits who came together and understood this amazing horse with the big heart.

Have you seen a race horse at the starting gate who’s being held up? Have you seen how crazy they get? Do you ever feel like that? What’s the hold up? Where what you really want to do is fly! Together we are going to identify this. It’s time to let go.

I agree with a Zen way to get anywhere. Be simple, focused, and direct. The way of the profound is simplicity.

There is a call on Monday May 19th, at 7 p.m where letting go is the topic.

So, instead of going through a lot of hoops, the focus on this whole year is the Tower,  of letting go. Turning away, literally ignoring what doesn’t work. Pleading indifference to that which has been a struggle. Actually being uninterested in anything and everything that sucks energy away from what we are, what we want, and what will serve.

That’s the focus. Next is the Star, with a multitude of beatific showers of esteem, power, and love. It’s the abundance of a river with a clear direction and a velocity from the high.

The Tower

A personal tower story:
Snake oil. For me snake oil, is selling a promise, not an actual thing.
I, Andrea Rich solemly swear that I will not entrust my resources to any promises. Just because they worked for someone else doesn’t mean they will work for me, and my experience has been they never have. What has worked for me: buying a house, selling a house. Creating a product, selling a product. Someone believing in me and investing in me with clear and absolute understandable terms.

There is a business coach out there, Ramit Sethi who I’ve followed for awhile. He used to never sell to anyone who was having a problem paying their credit cards. Then a business coaching system came along that had such an amazing sell, that I chose it over Ramit.  I said yes, to their lofty promise. “you will be making 10,000 by July, I guarantee it.” It really wasn’t the right fit for me. I truly wanted a one on one business coach, yet signed onto the program, which included a little one on one. When I didn’t become a star pupil the business coach who I had worked with for a year showed little interest in talking to me beyond just wanting to sign me up for another year. They had their money.  Hard, expensive lesson for me. I am starting to get it. It’s freeing. I still follow Ramit on-line. He’s one of the few I’ve kept in my inbox. How funny. If only I had listened to Lulu, as she was hot on Ramit, and I was hot on the other. Whoa.

This is precisely why everyone has to find their own way. Know what you are looking for. This is also why I never make any promises. I am an educator in self reliance.

MYOB: Self Care Act

In the guide we go into scheduling 3 things in 3 weeks that nourish you. You’ll do 1! It works. How about making an appointment for something kinda big that you want to do for yourself within 3 months? I just did that. I scheduled a saltwater floatation in May. In honor of my birthday. It feels great to do it. As you help yourself others benefit. People in the service business love to put something in their books in the future. It sets the tone.

My Program is kick ass

SSSSOOOOOOOO I have been doing my own program, and it is kicking my ass. Wooo. Hooo.

<Dominic the Donkey Says:>

It’s truly a must have manual. For anyone who who is so familiar with working on yourself, this pulls it together. Go here.

MYOB Monday: how’s your sleep?

I have quite a checklist as to what informs me regarding my environment.

This feels potent: The direction you sleep. Head at the South, feet at the North. This is encouraged due to the magnetic pulls on the planet. Energy collects in the Northeast direction of ones home.

If any energy feels off, start here.
