I was talking to my son the other day and he said, "being an adult isn't any fun this week."
He's had some typical Mercury Retrograde issues complicate his life and has had to deal with them. (For those of you keeping score: Mercury Retrograde Episodes = 1 refrigerator, 1 air conditioner, 1 speaker system, 1 ice maker. I'll keep you posted as I hear about other issues.)
It was his comment about adulthood and how difficult it can be that struck me. I've been thinking about it all week long.
He told me that he remembered that as a kid, things would happen and that we would just take care of it. Broken refrigerator? Buy a new refrigerator. Television breaks? New television. It all seemed simple but he's found out that isn't the case. We all find that out once we embark on being adults.
Once we learn the secret adult handshake, we deal with situations differently than we did as kids. We react to the situation. Rue the situation. Check the Internet for a quick and inexpensive fix to the situation. We cuss. (I do anyway.) We research the situation. We figure out a way to deal with the financial aspect of the situation. We resolve the situation. We forget it and move on.
There's nothing easy about being an adult. There shouldn't be anything easy about being an adult. By its very nature, it's a time of decisions, directions constantly changing and, if properly done, being the best we can be, and sometimes that takes a lot of doing.
I don't think we should mistake being an adult for doing "adult" jobs. The two are completely different. For example, I've known jugglers, magicians, singers and dancers, artists, psychics, professional writers, clowns, stand up comics and even a yo-yo man or two. Although some of these professions may not be considered to be adult jobs, the people doing them, the truly successful ones, are adults. Although they may work in a child-like atmosphere with joy and fun, they have responsibilities, pay taxes, put kids through school, buy homes and contribute to society.
Being an adult means taking care of business. It means being responsible and doing what has to be done, when it needs to be done. There are certainly times when bits and pieces fall through the cracks. That's natural. It's how we deal with those times that makes the difference.
I like kids, but they can be pretty self involved, and that's how it's meant to be. They live in a world of "me" and not necessarily in the world of "thee." Although there are children who do amazing things as philanthropists and aid society, most kids are just into being kids.
If we're paying attention on the journey, we leave childhood and become young adults. From there we move to the "what's with this new music" adult stage. It's this time in life where such realizations such as, "being an adult isn't any fun this week," come in. Between jobs, homes, yards, friends, families and all of the other bits of business that come to light, it gets very adult-ish. The good news is that adults can have tons of fun in our society, if they handle it right.
Unfortunately, there are some who never change or make the shift in their lives that frees them from eternal childhood. I've met lots of them. You've met them, too.
These are the folks who tell you that unless you play their way, they'll take their balls and go home. They make up the rules as they go and scream like Banshees when confronted about their behavior. (real Banshees are formidable spirits and not to be messed with) They know how to pass the buck, place blame and turn the tables on any situation, especially when they're at fault. They pout. They gossip.
Like I said, you know them.
Being an adult doesn't mean puffing on a pipe in front of the fireplace, putting on a stern face and lecturing Wally and The Beaver about the benefits of staying away from Eddie Haskell. (For those of you too young to understand this reference, do look it up.) Perhaps my main criteria for an adult is someone who doesn't enjoy playing head games with others.
It's this malicious game playing that drives me crazy. (or simply crazier) Those who enjoy being constantly victimized, put upon, tormented, punished or sent to bed without supper, so that they can then play with the mind of someone else; these babes in adult skins make my hair fall out. (that and 30 years of a ponytail) But I also feel sympathy for such individuals.
Living in their complicated world where game playing is a way of life isn't my idea of a fun or productive life. To me it feels stifling.
As adults, we get to grow and constantly evolve. What could be worse than being trapped on the path of life and not knowing it? Being mired in the mud, eternally spinning our wheels, is one of the pitfalls on the journey to light. Change doesn't come easily, but it does come, especially if we always stand for what we believe in and try to do what needs to be done.
So, dear readers and my beloved children, yes there are certainly weeks where being an adult isn't any fun, but by God, there are so many more where it's the very best game in town. I say let's get to it have one hell of a good time doing so.
Until next week, I wish you all peace, love, joy and a deep and profound appreciation of life.
Program Note: Out of Mo's Mind, Wednesday at 9 AM, PDT, on 12radio.com LIVE! I'll make my weekly predictions, as I've been doing lately. You'd think that with all of this predicting, I'd be able to tell you what my topic will be. You may be thinking, "Mo, throw some coins and do an I-Ching reading to tell us what's coming!" Or, you may be thinking, "Toss out some cards, gaze into your crystal ball, do something!" Well, I'm as big a fan of a predictable future as the next guy, but I also like a bit of the unanticipated as well. So, let's agree that Wednesday's show will be what it'll be and as big a surprise to me as to you. Okay?

I love music and have always felt inspired and healed by classical music. One of my all-time favorite pieces is "Adagio for Strings" by Samuel Barber. There have been times in my life when I felt that listening to this piece of music literally healed my energy body. As I listen to it now I feel it reconnecting and balancing my Heart Chakra.
I played the Clarinet in High School and college. I remember sitting in orchestra rehearsal listening to the strings practice Barber's moving piece and crying for no reason. Even then this piece of music was balancing my energy body and soothing my teenage emotions. Listen to "Adagio for Strings" here.
Our energy bodies vibrate at various frequencies, and sometimes they fall out of tune. Using vibration is a very effective way to keep your frequencies balanced. This can be done by drumming, playing a singing bowl, singing, listening to music, or playing a musical instrument.
There are several classical pieces I go to for healing and balancing. In my experience, music created with real live instruments is more beneficial to our energy bodies than electronically created music. Try listening to a few of these (best with headphones) and see what you think. Feel where the music resonates in your body. This is how you know what part of your energy body is being healed by the vibrations.
Canon in D-Pachelbel
Dances with Wolves Soundtrack
Last of the Mohicans Soundtrack
The Mission Soundtrack
The New World Symphony-Dvorak
The Brandenburg Concertos-Bach
Eine Keline Nachtmusik-Mozart
Claire de Lune-Debussy
These are just a few examples of a vast selection of classical music available. I encourage you to give it a try. I know not everyone resonates with classical music, but there are certain pieces that are universally balancing and healing.
Happy listening my friends,
