I got home not long ago and sat down for some sushi and sake. Warm sake is a great way to fortify one’s self against the cold of the winter currently beyond my windows. I’d actually never tried it before tonight, but I was compelled to get some when I failed to find any cider, which I was in the mood for when walking home. It may not have filled me with the memories of drinking cider at the home I grew up in, but it’s nice all the same.

As I mentioned in the video, I got a new camera on Monday. It has surprised me with its quality. I paid as much for it as I did for a cheap camera I bought a year ago and the features far surpass it. I hope I’ll take advantage of it to produce some new content here that will be interesting. No, not just a weekly feature on Mithra.
Sunday I used the Big Mind DVD that came with my ILP kit. It’s essentially a fast track to experiencing divinity using psychological and zen dialogue. It was really easy for me to slip into the different aspects of myself with it, whether it was the protector, the desiring self or the self that seeks the way. I found the process incredibly effective, but only a couple minutes after I shifted into the spaciousness of transendential consciousness I suddenly contracted my awareness and was unable to return to it easily. I’m sure I’ll be able to condition myself to be more receptive of the experience and look forward to when I do it again. The joy of that oneness is something to treasure. If you haven’t had that bliss of genuinely experiencing godhead, I hope you’ll talk my word that it is the most profound and altering experience one can have.
Monday, after some training at work, I picked up a copy of Collective Soul’s new DVD Home. A while ago I wrote here about buying the CD version, and I was floored by that. This, however, is an even more exciting experience. The one time I was lucky enough to see the band live was a wonderful experience and this recording is about as close to that as I’ll get without being in the crowd before them. The orchestal accompaniment to their music is exquisite and the band is at its best. The extra footage gave some nice shots of Atlanta and an awesome bonus song, “Georgia Girl”.
Now it’s time to retire with a bottle of Jones Soda and some chocolate-covered coffee beans.
