Musings on Mystereum Mountains… Part 4…

OK… so probably… technically… it’s a pyramid and not a mountain… but I see what I see and I see mountain or to be more exact a man perfectly at one with a mountain. But, the part of the card that always pops for me, is the orange around the neck… and during calm and centered days of deep thought, then I will ruminate upon words such as yoke and union and yoga and where ever those words may take me…

But then on other days, my monkey mind don’t swing that way and instead I find myself listening in to imagined conversations, that go a bit like this…

When Buddha met Atlas...

When Buddha met Atlas…

Buddha: Dude… You really need to sort that posture out… you’re gonna put your back out…

(Voice outta nowhere…)

B: Hey! Back off!! Health & Safety won’t exist for another 2500 years yet… Oh… Namaste ‘n’ all that jazz…

Atlas: You know man… my back does kinda ache…

B: You should try sitting like this…

A: Ha! I can’t sit around all day looking like a lotus! That’s not a good look for a Titan…

B: Ok… scrub the flowers… how about if just between you and me, we call it…a … ‘ seated mountain’..?

A: Mmmmm…. I’m not convinced…

B: Surely it won’t hurt to try?

A: Ok… I’ll try, if you let me try on your robe…

B: Ok… here… now try it.

A: Hey Man you’re right! This feels great! It’s taken such a weight off! At last I can think on other things…

B: Yeah… that’s great. I’m really happy for you, now can I have my robe back?

A: No way man! It’s got the whole of the cosmos resting on it!

B: Well how about you give me something in return?

A: I am… I’m giving you a lesson in non-attachment… you might wanna go and meditate on that…
