When the going gets tough, the Mystic takes the hint and leaves town.
For the most part, my time outside Congress, AZ was productive: I finished the first draft of the Soul chapter, filed my taxes, and attempted to get some health coverage under the VA—but the VA idea didn’t work out at all.
With my tax form in hand—proving that I was poor enough (way below the poverty line) to qualify for VA healthcare—I tried to fill out the application online but the PDF form feature wasn’t working. So I drove into Phoenix yesterday to take care of it. The library I went to didn’t have a workstation for printing documents from either a laptop or USB stick. The friendly librarian offered to print it herself, but her computer couldn’t see my USB stick. I went to the nearby Office Max and though their printers could see the USB stick, they couldn’t access it.
So I drove a few blocks down the street to the local VA clinic to fill out the forms in person, but there was a huge line inside.
How odd. Nothing about this project was working as expected.
So I hopped back in the van, picked up some supplies and returned to the Congress area to camp. Then, this morning, an unexpected storm appeared on the horizon and realizing there would be deep mud if it did rain, I left before the possibility could arise.
My Mind said it was too early in the season to head north and up in elevation, but my Heart said it’s time to see some trees, so I listened to my Heart and headed northward in direction and upward in elevation and now find myself in the cool little, mountain-ish, college town of Prescott.
Everything my Mind tells me, says this is a bad idea: Limited dispersed camping options, 7-day camping limits, unknown connectivity, snow patches still on the north facing slopes, …, but my Heart says I like the area so I’ll stay for a day or ten.
The Mind loves to play it safe, but the Heart loves to live.
Much like living as a Soul frees you from many fears, to live from the Heart is to live for the love of Life itself.
I’m not saying we should live foolhardily.
No, don’t be foolhardy…
But when you live from the Heart… you live carefree.
