I am in hysterics at this moment - a world of possibility
I am in hysterics at this moment

Life repeats itself mindlessly - unless you become mindful, it will go on repeating like a wheel. That's why Buddhists call it the wheel of life and death, the wheel of time. It moves like a wheel: birth is followed by death, death is followed by birth; love is followed by hate, hate is followed by love; success is followed by failure, failure is followed by success.

This is the rest of the card, then keep reading.

Just see! If you can watch just for a few days, you will see a pattern emerging, a wheel pattern. One day, a fine morning, you are feeling so good and so happy, and another day you are so dull, so dead that you start thinking of committing suicide. And just the other day you were so full of life, so blissful that you were feeling thankful to God, that you were in a mood of deep gratefulness, and today there is great complaint and you don't see the point why one should go on living.... And it goes on and on, but you don't see the pattern. Once you see the pattern, you can get out of it.

The symbol in this card is an enormous wheel representing time, fate, karma. Galaxies spin around this constantly moving circle, and the twelve signs of the zodiac appear on its circumference. Just inside the circumference are the eight trigrams of the I Ching, and even closer to the center are the four directions, each illuminated by the energy of lightning. The spinning triangle is at this moment pointed upward, toward the divine, and the Chinese symbol of yin and yang, male and female, creative and receptive, lies at the center.

It has often been said that the only unchanging thing in the world is change itself. Life is continuously changing, evolving, dying and being reborn. All opposites play a part in this vast circular pattern. If you cling to the edge of the wheel you can get dizzy! Move toward the center of the cyclone and relax, knowing that this too will pass.

So this morning something hit me.

Some things are re-occurring, or rather they were never made clear, and I see patterns in my life, though now there are new things, and, hmmm, I'm not going to be able to explain, but I understand and seeing how this is for me, that is what matters.

Graduation was great today. I love graduations at my school b/c they're not like a normal graduation, they're fun.
There is a, well performance of sorts. 4 people (# can prolly be different) do a speech of sorts, somewhat inspirational, somewhat joking.
It is about some philosophies of the school, jokes within the school
"no through line"
"nooo, suberobjective"

there was always a debate about what meant what, terms for the actor

and then something about each person

"So she was french when she was younger and then she grew out of it?"
The girl who played the younger version of me in a play was french.

"Elysa's still southern?" I was the only person who had a southern accent in all 3 plays at my school.

And then a few, this time 2, people make an actual speech, which they too are interesting, not typical graduation speeches.

Then free food.

I hope everyone is well.
