Loh bardo

As Lohbado fell into a deep sleep, it felt as though he were being pulled down into a moist dark pit, where roots stuck out through the clay walls and bug-like creatures gazed at him from hollows and cracks. He realized there was a way out, if he kept his wits and didn't panic. There were plenty of doorways offering an exit should things become too intense. Realizing it was not an all or nothing situation, Lohbado relaxed and enjoyed the textures of the underground world. It was like entering a temple of earth spirits. As he relaxed, the creatures became friendly. They highly recommended the simple life and laughed at the silliness of trying to proclaim oneself, or attempting to have power over others. They said it's good to stay grounded and rooted in tradition, while growing towards the sun which illuminates infinite space.

Lohbado and Lohbado

Lohbado plus Lohbado equals Lohbado. One Lohbado is composed of many Lohbadohs. Even the name Lohbado has two letter Os, which serve as lenses or portals plus circumferences around space.

suddenly things seem so clear

Lohbado dreamed someone gave him a cherry-flavoured spritzer and began talking about Anaxamander's apeiron, an infinite substance. After a few sips of the refreshing beverage, Lohbado contemplated how he had arisen from causes and conditions, exited for a while, then would dissolve back into the infinite cosmos. It created a strange and funny feeling. Everything in his life that seemed like such a big deal was not so important. The main thing was to be friendly, kind and reasonable.

Lohbado woke up and had a cup of coffee. For a few minutes, clouds of drowsiness dissolved and things seemed clear. What does that mean? He had many silly thoughts. A voice told him not to take the thoughts so seriously. Relax. Enjoy a cup of coffee. Go for a walk.

radiation cream

Sheer power of radiation stopped Lohbado in his tracks and caused him to have a look at himself. Lohbado examined Lohbado and concluded radiation cream might be an effective way to rid the body of worms picked up while crossing the Plains. Radiation cream was not an approved substance. Esmerelda made it in a back room of her house where Lohbado stayed for a few days. She offered him a sample.

Esmerelda showed Lohbado to her lab, where it became evident it was worth a try. She applied the cream to his back, chest, legs, arms, neck and face. It immediately provided relief. Heaviness lifted from his chest. He heaved a huge sigh and felt deeply relaxed. He wasn't sure if it was the magic effect of her warm skillful hands or the herbal properties of the cream that released deep waves of healing relaxation from deep within his body.

Lohbado eating worms

digital painting by Lohbado
Years ago, while crossing the Plains of Radiation, an infestation of worms got out of control. Nobody was immune from worms. One could see the telltale signs of where worms had latched on and sucked blood, little swellings or scars on the skin. One day, when food was scarce, he collected worms from the room he rented for a few days and ate them. Lohbado ate the worms that were eating him.

fetish book

Fetish objects serve a variety of functions. At the tabernacle, images and objects assist a person in processing the turmoil of everyday life. Humans are social animals who often experience conflict, irritation and friction while together. It's an odd combination. People are drawn together, then get on each other's nerves. It's a push pull situation. Come to me. Now please go away. Talk to me. Ok, you're talking too much. Sometimes it's helpful to spend time at the Moronovian Tabernacle to sort things out.
