jet lag- Japan-Canada


Jet lag- stuck in two realities, your body is physically in one place, but the mind,spirit and other sundries are the void somewhere between the two.  In Japan I was up in the wee hours because back home it was daytime.  Now I’m back home and I’m up in the wee hours because in Japan it is daytime.  PL Precept # 15 All is a Mirror


I travelled miles, spent hours in the airports, wandered what seems  days from one terminal to another.  I was in a constant state of “now” yet days later, after finally touching ground and being back on familiar ground, my “now” is still in Japan.  PL Precept # 7  Everything exists in Relativity.


Is this the answer at 2:26 in the morning, spaghetti with anchovies, garlic and olive oil. NO.  One thing that was made clear to me in Japan, was that I needed to cultivate a healthier way of eating, for me that is portion control.


hmmm, I think its time for me to try to go back to bed and find the door to slumber land.  Or I could stay here and be silly with you.  For sanity all around, I will go try to catch some zzzzz’s.  Although my mind is turning over with thoughts on how jet lag is so much like a state of being in another world, one that is parallel to the one we are in.  If only it could be as simple as walking from one room to another, the two worlds are so similar, yet so different. they really are worlds apart.  NOW I’m embraced by both, and physically I can only be in one place at a time.

Jet lag and Cicada

Jet lag and Cicada

http://youtu.be/oqys8lKsu4s for those of you who don’t know the sound the Cicada, there are many different varieties and I don’t know which group was in the dense vegetation, but the sound was constant. males have a loud shrill droning sound supposedly only at night, but someone forgot to tell this group, they were party going day and night.

Now home with jet lag in full residence, I find myself in and out of a sleep that is filled with the sounds of Japan. After awhile (in Japan) the constant chatter became background noise, I wish I had someone nearby to ask if the insects are ever quiet.  One barely heard the birds.

Jet lag reminds me of various states of meditation. I think I’m totally over it, when suddenly the need to lie down and “turn off” is just as quick as a flick of a switch. I’ve tried staying up, refusing to listen to the “inner voice”, Believe me when I tell you,my “inner voice” will not be denied.

Then I remember the PL teaching… the only thing you have control over is how you accept things and deal with them. I go lie down, it is a wonderful experience, I drift off into a place somewhere between Japan and Home, I let go ..letting the moment transport me to where i need to be.

Good night dear reader, till we meet again tomorrow.
