after 3 a.m. and still fighting the sleep

Greetings People! Since I'm having a little insomnia, I thought I'd share with you the recent "Buddha" cards from a deck by OSHO: I chose #17 -- "To straighten the crooked, You must first do a harder thing--Straighten yourself." The Dhammapada of Gautama the Buddha CA 500 BC: One has to learn to look at oneself with closed eyes, to watch silently. And don't carry any a priori prejudices. Many people have told you, "These are your faults." Don't carry those ideas within you, otherwise you will find them--because thought is very inventive. Put aside all that has been told about you. Remember only one thing: unless you know it on your own authority, it has no value, no meaning. So go without any prejudice--for or against. Just go in total opoenness and see. And if you love and if you know how to watch, you will come across the most mysterious phenomenon: seeing a fault is dissolving it. That is Buddha's great secret: knowing that you are doing something wrong is enough; you can't do it anymore." OSHO

Autumn leaves have fallen much, a few clingers-on. Crisp air, frosty mornings. Sending highest and best blessings to my Bloggie Friends...I've missed you! Love from your SisSTAR xo
