Imagining in the beginning

Nirvana, alienation and nothing in between

And so it was back zen as it is right Tao –
an opportunity to create . . .

(Big Bang)

To know Myself – experientially

Boundless Energy . . .

Now with a point of reference
Of discovery, forgetting and remembering
(sometimes simultaneously)

Who am I?
Who are you?
Who are we?

And where are we going?

Together as One . . .

Never separate . . .

Merely an illusion of disconnection

My creation reveals
My image in you
In the moment of Now . . .

My sleepy children
Awaken from your hibernation
Venture from Plato’s Cave
You must confront your darkest shadows
Before you may bask in the light of your soul

Mindfully Embracing your thoughts and feelings
Connecting the dots of your behavior
Piecing together the mysterious puzzle of

Infinite Intelligence

Sometimes, my apparent grandest creations
Appear timid and weak

Conversely, seemingly insignificant creations
Manifesting as a critical catalyst
For evolutionary growth

Defenses are eradicated
By expanded consciousness and transcendence

Finally understanding my Universal Language . . .

Love is as Love does

We are Building a foundation of intimacy
by speaking frankly in the language of love unconditionally

Pisces is water under the bridge between
Winter and Spring transition
Permission to grieve yin’s dirge
While awakening to new beginnings
Darkness fades as light rises in intensity . . .

Sister chaos flows into brother order
Leveling the playing field
Holding peaceful prayers and meditations
for graceful transitional equanimity

A sense of freedom arises in
the sweet surrender to the illusion of control

Let your soul power shine on
by coming out of the closet of psychologically defended modesty

When feeling uncomfortably bugged . . .
Try heeding the ear-worm – Love is all you need
Might that unearth a private and victorious conversational metamorphosis within?

Noticing judgments without judging them
and then letting them go without clinging on to fixed ideas

Sitting with what is empowers us to focus on self

Is it the other person that should change
or could you adjust your own internal dialogue?

When abuses arrive – empower yourself by taking refuge

Imagine if we all dive into a killing with kindness mantra?
With recognition and appreciation of divergent perspectives
Energetically clearing space for welcoming like-minded birds of a feather

Whistleblowers are akin to canaries in coal mines . . .
Please heed their call!
Their messages manifest sustainable Life!
Born out of the Dreamtime . . .

A balanced Life diet of resting, eating well and physically exercising
moves emotions around –
Nourishing harmony in our daily walking meditative footsteps
With a minimally processed Carbon Footprint

Got boredom?
Remember to hold an eagle-eye vision of the valley ahead
Setting goals, while paradoxically letting go of outcome
Cleansing inner pollution by holding a clean vision for Mother Earth
The Golden Age is an unfolding process of possibilities . . .

Venturing out in Nature affords a doorstep into a portal of
open-hearted receptive listening . . .
Stoking the embers of sensuous and magical feelings by honoring our
mysterious and primal orientation

See you further down the trails,

“American people are the new Indians of the 21st Century.”
Privately squatted by the Empire’s Powers that Be
Profiting off the backs of workaholism is modern slavery.
Smells of imperial tyranny . . .

Service is a carrot of payment back in kind
Rabbit in me says lettuce hit rewind
May our souls carry a heavy burden of past incarnations?
Inspiration to rework our issues through gradual confrontational self-reflection
Loosens up our entanglement with form,
while lightening up our emotional reactions

We have the right to remain silent
To hear stillness speaking spiritually
Might we consider it culturally?
And yet singing songs of freedom vocally!

Honesty and gentleness in relationship
facilitates a mutual understanding
Allowing our inner voices to come outside and play
Giving birth to our creative power

Taking pleasure in our daily list clears space for awakened doings
Cleansing the doors of perception cultivates peace of mind
Being positive hits our internal reset buttons

We are all psychics – from empathic connections
To anticipating rush hour commutes
(and) taking alternative routes
Staying grounded while becoming aware that we aware
Sometimes the logical mind does not compute . . .

Making paradoxical friends with wanting more and having everything we need
Crow medicine shows us everyday “magic in the mundane”
Transmutes ordinary moments into extraordinary Polaroids
Weaving in creativity into our mental lists

Infusing perceptual shifts of spiritual energy
A ray of light shining on in our shared world of form
Recapture a little of the glory of
through the mind-set of a child
carrying a light-hearted air

You have a right to be serious and uptight
but that gravitational pull can be a downer
Especially in a hurried shower . . .

In our travels, remember our rituals and routines
in tote with items of power

Tell me Syngenta, Bayer, Monsanto and Donagrosciences . . .
How does a bee reach Nirvana with neonicotinoid-insecticides?

Two hawks fly by on Valentine’s Day
An embodied omen that spirited physical movement cultivates fluidity
Viewing new vistas during our Earth Walkabout
Pushing our edges and trimming our borders
Being an active participant in the Life’s theater

Gently letting anxiety and waning Full Moon pass with care
to Occupy an inner peace World’s Fair

See you further on down the trails,

Groundhog reveals chiaroscuro
Shadowy death without dying in winter’s Dreamtime
Digging into Quantum shadowy unknown Twilight Zones
Closer to springtime

Surfing tidal waves of possibility
O’er a rainbow of spontaneity
Down yonder golden halo light of day

Yet with Mercury in Retrograde
We can dig on confronting our self-imposed limits
By accessing sensible, realistic pragmatism
While effectively reworking busyness in our business

Be careful of unintended consequences before diving into commitments
Self defense against burnout, compassion fatigue and spreading yourself thin

Money is energy and part of abundance
With positive or negative values attached to its manifestation
Like overfishing leads to swimming upstream
Does a forthcoming economic tailspin
Plunge us into a more equitable and sustainable unfolding Golden Age?

Imagine justice on Earth without a fight
If corporations are people too, then shouldn’t this process be more organic?

Remembering compassion toward others is empowering toward thyself
Designating a sacred space facilitates believing in yourself – Faith and Trust
“I can breathe here. I can relax here. I know I am safe here.”

Think before you speak while
Having a non-confrontational conversation with present moment

In stillness of winter
Can’t you hear the seeds underground thinking about waking up?
Waxing light ignites pregnant energies
Stoking the flames of rebirth
“It is in the still darkness of the void that the light is born.”

But birth is not without labor pains . . .
(Monsanto Genetic Engineering to repel Agent Orange?)
C’Mon Man!
Feeling restless, irritable and depressed?

Thank You goddess Brighid for wishing us mystically well
How do you like them apples?

Intuitive heart-minds assert that we are a healthy weight when listening
to our bodily signs singing songs about our buoyancy and agility

This Friday I’m in Love with a Full Moon
Won’t you join me in its becoming?

See you further on down the trails,

We remember when liberal curiosity makes friends with conservative restraint
Live and let live
Releasing our coat of armor reveals graceful beauty –
Casting an enchanting spell on one another

Surfing Life’s ebb n’ flows or swimming against the currents

Breathe in the freedom to weave in playful Dreamtime
Breathe out stagnant work habits
Everything old is new again
Imaginative presence is mental martial arts

Colorful eating for the Chakras burns clean energy

Group psychology is a tool to free our minds
Let us not forget
the same systems that oppress can liberate

“We are all Indians . . . Our spirits should be puncture proof”
All are deserving of infinite universal blessings
From polyracial-ethnic cross-pollination that society boxes into white and black labels
(and) those oriented otherwise
Being Native American is a state of consciousness
Thank you to our Elders that have stuck with us

Who am I?
I am all in just being with what is
When Earth cries an acid river of tears
we hallucinate a collectively designed nightmare

Listening to the Great Void of winter
Chinese-Lunar New Year, Groundhog Day and Imbolc passing
Moving us over the hump toward Spring Equinox

Plan of action is a fluid guide for manifestation

Naming and owning our feelings allows mutuality in
authentic conversational partnership

Marching to our becoming collective soulful drumbeat
Gradually gaining gentle and powerful momentum like water
Restructuring our thoughts into positive affirmations

Embracing our unique eccentricities –
Make Love not war with your individuality
Respectfully in community

Imagine . . .
Endangered species supporting one another in mutuality –
old stories posit humans being descendants of wolves
Wolf government is a complex balancing act
of hierarchical pecking order and democratic principles . . .
Does this harmonic convergence sound familiar?

dinosaur developmentally delayed paradigm that asserts:
“bad for people, good for business”
This fool’s gold quackery is bad medicine even for
the movers and shakers at the top of the food chain
Equanimity in business is good practice (win-win)

Naughty bullies need love too
There are no enemies brothers and sisters

Way to break the mold Pete Seeger
Your Spirit is music to my ears
