Now for something completely different. Or at least entertaining.
Do you think nature has a sense of raunchy humour? I do.
Because one of my co-workers brought in a bushel of apples from his tree this past week, and one of them was an ass apple. Yep, an ass apple:
Nature, it turns out, is also naughty. For not only was it an ass apple, it was a spanked! ass apple.
But you can always trust nature to go for the anatomically correct artistic:
I love nature.
Hey, no one can be positive and deep all the time. Something I’ve been reminded of this week.
I know to the bone that not all is good and wonderful, but I’m not sure that is always conveyed in this blog.
I do try to keep to a healthy view of life. Which means I work on not holding excessively to negative feelings or in other words venting is good. There are limits to this. Venting or ranting all the time is bad. Why? Because it gives your body too many stress hormones, it fools you into thinking that your world is more horrific than it is, it makes you a miserable bitch to be around. It’s a straight way to lose friends and alienate people.
Venting or ranting in the moment to express how you’re honestly feeling, that’s healthy. Though watch your environment, not all places are suitable for ranting.
And I do rant. Oh, how I do. I get so much fodder and on such a regular basis that it’s a necessary regular component of life. But I realized when I started this particular post that I have never ranted within this blog. Mind you, I can’t typically get into details given the other people involved and privacy considerations, but dammit cranky is as much an honest emotion as the sweet joy of spiritual enlightenment.
This week has been a mess of stupidity. Under foot, over head, through spoken, written and electronic means.
What is my spiritual take on this?
That sometimes you need to get tough, get bitchy, and use the force of idiocy-induced-aggravation to fuel the boundary setting and problem solving. As with all things, there’s a balance. In this case, the polite and helpful (typically the best way to get things done) has needed to be counterbalanced by the tough attitude and the word “no”.
Can you believe that Neptune, Uranus and Jupiter are all retrograde right now? I can.
