After Last Week’s Christmas Full Cold Moon fades into the twilight
Sunlight rises in our Divine ascent through less darker nights

But there will be plenty of darkness to tunnel through before
Groundhog Day resurfaces again in early February

We move further toward sensual equanimity on the Spring Equinox in March

Until then, our free-spirited feet respect the
gravitational pull of our emotional earthbound connections

Eagle inspires our souls to be high-minded and connect with deep roots

Soon 2015 will give birth to a Chinese New Year of the Monkey
Always a good time to relax attachment to form

Silence the chattering monkey mind with an inquisitive
and introverted personal reading

What places inside of yourself needs re-visitation and refinement?

Communication with Higher Self vistas
Fly into our Being in spite of anticipatory cold weather fronts

Be a beacon of light when walking with shadows . . .

Our light and dark sides are not warring enemies
May Eagle’s powerful medicine heal any polarity

Become the seeds that you have planted in the year ahead
Be like water and mindful of your head

May heartfelt intimacy awaken . . .
beneath emotionally triggered eruptions

What parts of your soul want to be seen and be heard?

Onward up the trails,

The Winter Solstice arrives this week in the Northern Hemisphere
A Full Cold Moon on Christmas signifies a
birth of the coldest, darkest and longest nights of the year . . .

After that we will begin to coax back the light of masculine-yang

Paradoxically, our friends in the Southern Hemisphere experience peak light –
Where masculine-yang reaches its zenith on the Summer solstice . . .
And then a downhill run toward rising dark nights of feminine-yin

Like it or not, pain and suffering are part of life
But most of us want to be happy

So here we sit in a chair with paradoxical tension of opposites

Pain is inevitable, but suffering is a choice
Pain is a wound that hurts
Let yourself feel sad in your heart for this . . .

Our ancestors that have left this planet
frequently revisit us during a death cycle in Nature

Do you remember the Buddha’s God realized teachings on compassion in the park?

Become the courage to move deeper into your pain through a lens of compassion
Gently allow yourself to maintain a graceful and compassionate gaze of Deer

Happiness as a way of life is a real possibility
Sing in the whispering winds to the key of inner peace

Christmas is coming to signal the birth of Christ Consciousness
Might as well come down into your soul and Love one another

Because the gift of your presence here is worth receiving!

Remember that soap opera around your pain is of your own creation . . .
Just own it and move forward!

Onward up the trails,

Mountain Lion embodies a gentle roar through leading by quiet example
Their powerful energy comes from within rather than a position without

Awakening into this style of leadership will probably remain hidden to the naked eye

A New Moon has passed over the horizon
Always a good time to ignite new beginnings in your consciousness

A Full Cold Moon arrives on Christmas day
Not long after the Winter Solstice –
Where darkness peaks at that time

Pretty soon, our days will slowly become longer in the Northern Hemisphere
Sunlight rises day after day until it peaks on
the Summer Solstice in June

Mountain Lion guides us into the true power of an internal martial artist
Cultivating energetic momentum that builds gradually like water
A cumulative effect of simmering softness of feminine energy has risen again

Accept responsibility and leap into action
Adjust your game plan at any given moment and respond accordingly

Meditate on the primal elemental forces of water and darkness . . .

How many times have we feared our own feminine nature?

Relax into any unknown adventures  along the way

Onward up the trails,

Ari

In this Moon’s darkness
The light of a New one awaits on the horizon

May we be guided by Turkey Vulture through longer nights
with a bright purifying rebirth on the way . . .

The return of the Winter Solstice is coming soon again
After that, we start coaxing back the light

Something to look forward to . . .

Come down into your souls and levitate above the old
dying emotions that have sucked life out of your energy field

Release those stuck energies and renew your power
Let them go so they can return to a black hole where they can rest in peace

Instead of hating the real perceived targets we call enemies
We shall make friends with a new world where we respect our diversity

It can feel gut wrenching to watch predator and prey do their thing
But take a closer look and examine why this moment presented itself to you
And see if the message becomes clear to you upon that self-reflection

The egoic voice in the head that judges some of us as better than others
Parrots that some of us are more worthy of being saved or damned to be cursed
Like for example the recent segregationist thinking that
says we should demonize the Islamic State

If it’s not one picture of an enemy, it’s another
as processed, sold and bought on the corporate media

There are vultures and fire everywhere
Don’t get sucked into the seductive dramas of apocalyptic doom and gloom

Change the channel and tune in to your feelings and dreams
Give back the remote control to yourself, rather than outsourcing
your inner kingdom to the outer world’s dysfunction

That old world reptilian brain wants to keep you in a fearful place
Time to release those old mental scripts that are scared of their own shadow

When the old self dies, a new identity is reborn
It takes time before the dust settles
Rome wasn’t built, nor destroyed in a day

In the burning fields, new organic pastures are growing
Might as well mulch the reality of inner peace
and transform it into a more realistic possibility

On the inside, we are discovering the freedom to take the fight out of
releasing old mountains that must now move out-of-the-way
So that we can look upon our souls from a cleaner perch

Humankind can embody its name
In the death of our divisive ways, may we embrace our colorful diversity
And use it to our advantage by sharing our resources in harmonic reciprocity

See you onward up the trails,

Ari
