A mighty flower is born in New York!

Posted on April 29th, 2009 by Jim

From to Dubai to New York, us flowers are everywhere.

A big congratulations to flowers contributor mighty morgan who is settling at home with her new bambino. The new little flower bud, Samantha Rose (who really is a little miracle as the labor almost killed her) joined the world – all 4 lbs 10 oz of her.

We applaud Mighty Morgan in New York after her journey that few others would get through after we followed her progress over at her blog, The Process of a miracle – A 30 day experiment – addiction to recovery and beyond.

So, on behalf of all at GSTF this one is for Samantha Rose in New York:

Congratulations again! All baby type comments welcomed here, all 4 lb and 10 oz of them!

GO! Tend to Your Garden of Friends!

Posted on April 20th, 2009 by Clinically Clueless

Well flower people, I’ve recently been evaluating friendships especially with having ended a “friendship” that I’ve had for more than 30 years, my surgery, two hospitalizations and increasing my circle of blogging friends.

Yes, blogging friends. No, they are not my best buddies. Usually, we don’t pick up the phone to see how one another is doing, but we may email. In fact, most I don’t know what their voice sounds like and I’ve never met them.

However, I still call them my friends.

I feel I can be myself with them in emails and just yell sometimes. Blogging buddies are new type of friends that electronic has made possible via email and the Internet. No one lives in the same time zone or probably has the same accent or spells or pronounces things as I do…..

Chief Flower Smeller – My reason to be!

Posted on February 9th, 2009 by Jim

Hi from Dubai folks. Recently redundant Jim here proudly presenting to you my reason to be:

It’s all about the title, right? I’m not sure exactly how, where or why money will come into all this to earn a living but GO! Smell the flowers is my reason to be. Maybe naked flower promotions here in Dubai could be the place to start or would that land me in trouble?

“Do what you love and the money will follow” a drunk said to me in a bar once, before toppling over taking a tray of drinks with him. Well I’m giving it a GO! and after a knee jerk reaction of updating my C.V and trying to get another job I’ve decided I’d like to face up to the global recession here in Dubai by talking and writing about it. Time is conspiring against us all not to face up to the reality of economic change – have you seen the price of bread lately?

Should be an interesting ride and I’m lucky to have the moral support of the GSTF community here to help inspire countless people all over the world. Maybe my new circumstances will give me a bit more of this:

Comments welcomed and THANK YOU for your support. Let’s give it a GO!

GO! Say it as it is….

Nearly time for lunch here in Dubai and quite fancy a what-do-you-call-it?,  as I’m rather hungry:

Do we know where all our processed for comes from? It’s for sale and consumed by others so it must be ok, right?

Food comments welcomed here – what are you having for lunch today and why? Do tell and save me a bit.

Smell the Evening meeting of the White Robe Brotherhood

Posted on September 25th, 2008 by Jim

Well flower smellers, I’ve had some nights out in my time and here at the OSHO meditation resort in Pune, India with my open mind ramping up the old karma dollars, despite me being encouraged to have NO MIND since my arrival here! I’d like to give you my honest as-it-happened feedback on what is considered the most important, must attend event of anyones stay here.

The Evening meeting of the White Robe Brotherhood.

I welcome all pro / anti or indifferent OSHO comments following this article so I too can learn from my time here. It is a unique opportunity, according to the OSHO meditations handbook is to experience ‘alertness with no effort’ the essence of the meditative experience.

This is not a teaching, a doctrine, a creed; that’s why I can say anything. I am the most free person who has ever existed as far as saying anything is concerned. I can contradict myself in the same evening a hundred times, because it is not a speech, so it has not to be consistent. It is a totally different thing, and it will take time for the world to recognize that a tremendously differ­ent experiment was going on. Just in a moment, when I became silent, you become silent…. What remains is just a pure awaiting. You are not making any effort; neither am I making any effort. – OSHO

Sounds good – I’m in. Another day at the power plant for Homer, turn up and do nothing?
