In shoulderstand I could see my pulse on the top of both feet, felt quite strongly there. When I came down I could feel the blood pleasantly and warmly rushing to my feet.
In agni sara, laughter welled up and was uncontrollable.
9.00-9.30 Liber EEE tarot trick, only disk, cup, sword or trump
28 correct out of 78=36%
tough, got court cards and trumps confused often. Maybe next time I'll add court cards. Speed seems to be the key. The faster I came up with an answer the more likely it would be correct. Slower=brain interference.
9.00-9.51 pm Liber MMM shavasana/stillness/breath
Breathing much easier tonight.
Found myself awash in the feeling of inadequacy and failure, pointlessness. I am all too familiar with these feelings.
Saw them wash away, mostly.
Feel much better now, realized how awful of a use of energy they are.
I think they were engendered by feeling like work is too stressful and the failure of getting a tai-chi class/yoga class up and running in Burlington
How silly it seems now
Still indolent later in meditation
Attempted some deep breathing, closer to Liber MMM, seemed distracting, but it may be the ticket.
