I remember walking along the trails with a student, when he noticed a salamander. After exhaling dead air, I felt alive after taking a conscious breath of fresh air. Further along the festival of Life, I became engaged in another conversational flow with one of the cats I roll with from around the way. After helping him pick up some fallen branches left over from Hurricane Sandy, I said a prayer of gratitude for the storm’s minimal impact in our neck of the woods, while simultaneously expressing a silent blessing to our friends to our South that were affected more dramatically. Given that I had just cast my absentee ballot, our conversation quickly cut to a commercial about going blue. Although I didn’t turn into a wolverine or get depressed while listening to my feline friend’s assertion to vote in that hue, it saddens me that we are merely one step away from a dictatorship here in the United States, in that we are more polarized than ever in our collectively boxed-in mindsets. But seeing two women on a presidential ticket here in the USA fills my heart Chakra green with hope! When we truly walk in alignment with Nature, we shift our focus less on the odds by levitating into the realm of Infinity, where holographic possibilities abound. With turkey vulture and salamander as a spirit guides, we ride the thermals of life, elevate our Auric vision and invigorate our energetic field around us. Moreover, we shed our old skin to make way for rebirth and effectively navigate the elemental forces of land and water. In this process, we co-create Heaven on Earth by consuming a healthy spirited diet, while feathering each other’s ripple in a positive vibration of Love and Light.
If we are to co-create a more egalitarian culture here in the Nation, the Americas, Planet and Universe throughout, we need to heed the cadence of Classroom Mothership Earth and the heart of Great Spirit. All creatures, great and small, above and below are equal in the eyes of Great Spirit and we are all nourished by our Mother Earth. Nature has an organic way of leveling the playing field and we see that play out in Climate Change. Some of you have noticed that I have selected Tom Brady as a metaphor for staying calm in the pocket, especially when blitzed by unpredictable and turbulent weather patterns in the form of Giants. Tom Brady personifies someone who may not have been blessed with the greatest natural talent, but he has become greatness by avoiding catastrophes time and again. Specifically, the future Hall of Fame quarterback effectively demonstrates T’ai Chi like subtle movements in the pocket, psychically reading and adjusting to relentless defensive storm fronts and maintains a wide open angle gaze downfield, while believing in the possibility of making a big play, against apparent all odds. Now if you think I’m throwing low balls at the rest of the team around him, I’ll bet that turkey vulture would concur that would be a foul ball. Like a salamander, Brady slithers between the elements and demonstrates metamorphosis right in front of our eyes. Like switching gears from running and passing, Mother Nature shows us similar shifting fronts of waning light and movement toward the dark. Here in the Northern hemisphere, we officially turn our clocks yinward in the week ahead. Masculine-yang energy is fading to black as feminine-yin energy is becoming more dominant, until it’s climax on the Winter Solstice and the end of the Mayan Calender on December 21, 2012.
Given the corporate media’s compartmentalized view of Nature’s new normal, we must get into alignment with Climate Change by embracing this phenomenon, rather than resisting it. Humanity has a say in how we navigate this process and rather than hate the media, we must become the media. On a personal spiritual front, experiential wisdom reminds us that what we resist persists and we must become the change we want to see in the world. Yes, large socialist mega-corporations that continue to rape and abort our Mother need to wake the f-bomb up and stop fracking around folks, as my Midwestern aunt that likes to rant provocatively asserts. We are spiritual beings having human experiences. As such, we have the capacity to right the ship, come about and lead an unprecedented shift in consciousness while floating on the waters of life. When we see things in our field of vision that are alarming, the Universe is providing us an opportunity to send the power of Love to whatever floats in our orbit. That means that we acknowledge our anger and other flood of negative emotions that arrive and then gently breath those feelings out, while sending them Love for compost. In a sense, we swim on land and surf the shifting tides into a New Age and Paradigm, one step, one breath and one moment at a time. This kind of mulching has a much more pleasant stink to it than getting stuck in the muck. By sending Love to our inner space, we shift from pollution to healthy renewable energy for all to share.
