Project Bird Sanctuary

I think I’ll start creating a “project” from every workstream in my life.  So, for example, “Project Breakfast” and “Project Streamlined Morning Routine” or whatever.  I’m pretty sure that the wonderfully anal-retentive tendencies encouraged by my new job managing a hundred grant contracts have something to do with it.  I think it’s a good thing - it will help me to take joy in breaking things down into components and steps, and to stay motivated throughout the phases of a project.  Here is “life” as practice for “work” and vice versa - woohoo, excellent!

One of the “projects” I’ll be undertaking today is “Project Bird Sanctuary” - and it’s probably not what you’re thinking.  It’s just a grant (of time) for making my room into a true sanctuary from the world outside its doors.  I plan to do this by aspiring to live like a bird, which is to say very lightly and frugally.  I will live with only what is necessary, and used with delight and good reason.  I will try to address the root causes and unanswered questions that have thus far kept me from truly seeing this vision manifest itself.  It will let me confront some realities when it comes to clinging.

"Bird Sanctuary" also has tender meaning to me because it’s one of the places we went to on a family trip when we lived in Australia, when I was 6-8 years old (i.e. the best time in my life).

What matters is the state of your heart.

Life is purposeless. Don’t be shocked. The whole idea of purpose is wrong — it comes out of greed. Life is a sheer joy, a playfulness, a fun, a laughter, to no purpose at all. Life is its own end, it has no other end. The moment you understand it you have understood what meditation is all about. It is living your life joyously, playfully, totally, and with no purpose at the end, with no purpose in view, no purpose there at all. Just like small children playing on the sea beach, collecting seashells and coloured stones.

I love clean kitchens so hard.  That’s all I’ll say.
