Today's Draw: 9 of Fire from Osho Zen. Are you feeling overwhelmed and mentally exhausted? Are you overthinking something to the point of exhaustion? Are you feeling spiritually impoverished?
This card shows a man in tatters, drawn and exhausted, overseeing the complex, chaotic machinery of his mind. The card bears the word "exhaustion".

As I consider how this applies to my life, thinking that it doesn't, it occurs to me that yo...u can be in this state without even realizing it...a state where your mind is discombobulated and distant. If, on the other hand, you're overthinking something, you're probably turning the same thoughts over and over in your head, trying to make sense of them. Either way, the answer lies in breaking out of that habit. Do something creative. Change your venue. Howl at the moon. Just do something to break the pattern. Because you're not doing anyone any good if you're not present.

So what's on your mind? I have a few things, mostly work related. But the dogs and I are going to go someplace different today and I'll probably journal. That always helps me. As does being in a different setting. How about you?
