--- Muse TUESDAY - SEARCHING FOR THE ONE


Too Many Choices
I've been struggling - what to do with Tuesday's blog.
What will be the Tuesday Muse?
I start with a little research, trolling around the web.

Origin of the name

In the brief amusing history of English Tuesday was named after
an Anglo or Saxon god, but which one?


Wikipedia
In the Greek world, Tuesday (the day of the week of the Fall of Constantinople) is considered an unlucky day. The same is true in the Spanish-speaking world. For both Greeks and Spanish-speakers, the 13th of the month is considered unlucky if it falls on Tuesday, instead of Friday. In Judaism on the other hand, Tuesday is considered a particularly lucky day, because in the first chapter of Genesis the paragraph about this day contains the phrase "it was good" twice.
In the Thai Solar Calendar, the day is named for the Pali word for the planet Mars, which also means "Ashes of the Dead". and the color associated with Tuesday is Pink.
In the folk rhyme Monday's Child, "Tuesday's child is full of grace".

Then I Remembered Hanuman

The Hanuman Chalisais a forty verse chant describing the life and deeds of Hanuman,
the Hindu monkey god, central character in the Indian epic
Ramayana.
Tuesday is designated as Hanuman day, and it is sung
either 11 times (about an hour) or
108 times (about 12 hours) continuously.
It is said that even hearing it sung is enough, and that
singing it is more than enough to effect a transformation over time.
I sing it with others since first hearing it,
then learning it,  and finally loving it.
Just a taste for now
since more about it's spiritual significance will be on a
Sunday Spirit Muse blog

I'm okay - http://earthsky.org/earth/5-8-magnitude-earthquake-rattles-washington-d-c-and-u-s-east-coast - If I felt it, it was in a dream - took a nap 1-3PM and missed it. I slept through 9/ll too, sort of - waking a few short minutes after the second plane hit with a funny feeling that made me turn on the radio, then TV, just in time to see the towers fall. All stayed quiet long enough for me to have one more yoga class at 5PM, and it was good, A new sign went up at the bus stop (I'll add it on to woeld muse Wednesday. I'm ecstatic in the strangest way, floating, sailing out on this evening breeze, "skipping over the Ocean like a stone"...hugs to you all=>
