With one accidental "delete" I wiped out the original Oz podcast series (the one with all the pictures and colorful commentary on a weekly blog) that I managed from December 2016 to February 2017. In hindsight it was the best thing ever! Because now I had the motivation to get my act together and re-organize the website and understand better what I really want to do with all this Oz material. What would turn me on completely? What does Aurah-as-Me want to share with the world? I love to witness the connections between things and events and write about them. I love a big story-arc. I love to capture the details I notice and to process them with the written and spoken Word.
So I made some changes. I placed a simple list of recordings on the Oz Episodes page and password-protected it along with this unfolding blog / podcast recordings page and the About Aurah page. With one deft move I shield my sisters Aujah and Audah from being collateral damage of any kind, should anyone in their lives link either one of them up with an unconventional "art project" such as this. Their pictures are all over the place, after all. In addition, I have created a safe space for myself to express. A free place of expression where I can navigate the Default World as Aurah with less worrying and fretting. I know my programming really well and I know what I would do if I allowed my Presence to falter and slip back into the default samsaric state for any length of time. Besides, I've just asked some in my "inner circle" to start calling me "Aurah" which could get awkward real fast. And if I don't articulate it, then I'm not consciously authoring my life, now am I? [Not true anymore. All is transparent now.]
My Default World can get a little stressful sometimes and I have my ways of dealing with it - meditation, books, workshops I attend, yoga and more. I manage a decent-sized team and raise lots and lots of money for a wonderful organization in my community. Sometimes my role there has a very public face and I would prefer not to fret about jeopardizing my opportunity to work there or the organization's reputation in any way. I am only here to serve my community.
I leave in a couple of days for a work conference in San Diego and one of my team members reminded me yesterday that Coronado Island is just off the shore. In a flash I remembered that L. Frank Baum wrote several of the Oz books while living on the island. Looks like Aurah is going to pay a visit. Adventures are almost guaranteed... That's what this blog is for. I see that now. May it be so!
