X Marks the Sun Spot


by Andrew Borakove October 20, 2017

While this 16 inch Solar Flare Gong is just a little bronze musical instrument... actual solar flares are intense explosions or bursts or flows (call it what you will) of radiation that come from the release of the magnetic energy associated with sunspots.

SUNSPOT SUNSPOT WE LOVE YOU! (SUN-SPOT- sounds like the name of a very happy dog, don't you think?)

Solar flares are ranked using five categories.

Weakest to stongest: A, B, C, M, and X.

Obviously solar flares have no cares about the rest of the letters in the alphabet.

Each category is 10 times stronger than the one before it.

DID YOU HEAR THAT! TEN TIMES STRONGER!!! Whoa.

Within each category, a flare is ranked from 1 to 9, according to strength, although X-class flares can go higher than 9.

Let this be a lesson to you, friends. Name almost anything X and it can be a wild card, a powerful thing. Malcolm X. X-Men. X Box.



While listening to a gong like this, it can bring you back from outer space, can bring you back from fantasies and leftover dinner doldrums as well. A solar flare, a real one, can disrupt communications and satellites, taking you away from far away, from text messages, from calls about nothing, from nowhere to no one.

It brings you back to your body, to your life, to your now.

To the Eternal Present.

Is the Eternal Present a Paradox? No. Not at all.

It is always here. We are just not always here.

We leave our bodies and space out.

We remember something from the past and as a spirit go there.

How many times have you been driving and then realize you were not paying attention to the road for two minutes?

We cannot always pay full attention to what is present in front of us, but it is good to try.

Especially if we don't like it.

Run away from it, you can't change it.

Address it fully and it changes and so do you.

You have grown more neutral to that which you found icky, and therefore, stronger than it.

And then you can move to the next imagined and better future for yourself... which will be come your Eternal Present when you arrive to that time.

HURRAH! What an awesome name for a Gong Stand.
