Sunlight reaches its peak on the summer solstice in later June . . .
At this junction Bee becomes more active
by shining Its sweetness across our planet

There are imperial deep pockets that fuel
commercially driven insecticides and pesticides
that sell us crime rhymes spitting that the only good bee is a dead one

But those of us that are in alignment with the pulse of our planet know better . . .

No bees, no flowers
How fragrant would that be?

But the dark side of a business-centric supremacist hive mentality
threatens their existence and our own by way of killer agents sprayed
on the fruited plains of our classroom know as Earth

What would we do without the fruits of their labor?
What would we do without healthy seeds in this Garden?

See honey as a metaphor for a natural elixir of
love, fertility, industry and sexuality

It takes a nation of remote-controlled drones to hold us back . . .

Working in masculine drones, bees epitomize a strong work ethic –
This active yang approach mirrors rising energetic sunlight

But Queens Bee rules the roost – so their habitat hints at a matriarchal society
Yet paradoxically their culture is a hierarchy

Turn yinward and look deeply into your feminine right brain self

We can learn interdependence from Bee
Realizing that fluid synergistic top-down and bottom up communication
is necessary for our survival during movement into a New Age

What’s the buzz about unisex bathrooms?
We are moving into more androgynous times
Abuses already happen in clearly segregated designations

Sort of like “free speech zones”
More official zones equals less free speech

Do you need to examine your own sexuality or your attitudes toward sex in general?

Watch the influx of refugees stream into Western/First World Nations
Challenging us to redefine our sense of cultural identity

A planet without bees is a world without flowers and fruits
Talk about a buzz killer

Bees know there is power in numbers . . .
We should adopt that wisdom when it comes to a Critical Mass that
tips the scale of collective consciousness into a positive dimensional shift

Waking up to the power of transformation will transcend the conventional logic of
even our most celebrated and brilliant minds

Take a moment to stop and smell the fruits of your labor . . .
and the fruits of the present moment in the Zen of right Tao

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Thank you to all of you who have supported the energy of this blog.

It has been a process, and I could not have done it without
your encouragement and co-creation.

In fact, this forum has inspired the recent publication of my first book,
accompanied by my Aunt Barbara’s beautiful animal pictures.

And I would like to thank my wife Kristen, for her Earth. I deeply appreciate her grounding force in my life!

As such, I have chosen to take a break from this week’s posting to
allow us to sit with and celebrate the arrival of this walking meditation.

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you up the trail head next week with new material,

Hummingbird guides us into the realm of joy . . .

Lighten-up and follow your bliss!

Be inspired to drink in the sweet nectar of a waxing Full Flower Moon
that springs into action on Saturday, May 21st

Part of happiness is the wisdom that we are not always going to feel happy
Plenty of other thoughts and emotions will fly into our energy fields

It is painful to ponder the 10,000 ways we might enter the valley of death
Are you familiar with the ring tone of the negative beats that
rap through the vibrations of the lower chakras?

But you can just sit here watching the wheels go round and round
Let go and watch the world turn

Perhaps you are enraged by chem trails or heavy metals in squirrels
Maybe you are grieving dying trees, institutionalized racism and class warfare

Or do those that bury their heads in the sand like an ostrich cook your grits?

If only we harmonize with our conflict,
then we heal the trauma of duality

Open up your eyes to seeing oneness in Nature’s totality

Hummingbird guides you into a most sweet and satisfying celestial seasoning . . .
A space of inner peace where you can swim in the waters that madness drowns in
Might as well suck it up and hum through your more painful moments

The New Moon in the past had a strong gravitational pull
Earth-centered folks probably felt a greater tug of war than
their more free-spirited birds of a feather

But that’s OK, it just reminds us to deepen our empathy for our diversity
and temper our sensitivities through compassionate understanding

Look to Nature to show you that everything is fleeting and transient
The only constant is change

Humming is a powerful mantra, especially with Mercury still in Retrograde
It is a good time to hover over right-brained, mysterious,
illogical, unpredictable and meditative systems of thought

Intuitive, spiritual realms of alternate realities abound . . .
Trying to mold circles into square pegs will drive you crazy

Hummingbird reminds us to stop and smell the roses
Because life is what happens when you are busy making other plans

Meditation on Hummingbird’s ability to fly in all directions
Awakens multidimensional maps for heightened perception

Stop on a dime and hold your position for a moment
Examine any fixed-mind thought forms and relax with flexibility
for a sensuous spell of the eternal now

Effectively weathering Climate Change requires a shapeshifting of
adaptability and mutability

May we harmonize with our environment

See you up the trails,

Ari

Frog is a natural spring cleaning, in yin feng shui fashion . . .
Time to clear away residual cobwebs from the ghost town of winter’s dirge

Do you remember the voices of yesteryear?
What do those peeps tweet to you about today’s relationships?

May the rains come to purify our souls . . .
Let old, stuck energies go with the flow
to a place where deep roots grow

Frog is an internal martial artist that releases
any energies that might be causing you emotional negativity

What needs to be released from your psyche?
Frog facilitates the development of healthy boundaries

They are magical connections to elemental forces of water and land
The pouring rains are the touring bands

Lunar energies of abundance and fertility will peak,
on a Full Flower Moon in a couple of weeks

Change is in the air . . .

Bring the noise through water and sound
Creativity abounds!

Does stress got you feeling depleted?

Be mindful of your breath
Stop, hit the pause button and think twice before you act

See you up the trails,

Ari

Blue Heron swoops in this week . . .

Beltane’s arrival signals the mid-point between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice
A New Moon comes later this week as Yang rises

Heron is a conservative tribe that inspires
aggressive self-determination and self-reliance . . .

These powerful birds tend to view themselves as king of the marsh

Their long legs remind us of our deep connection with Mother Earth
Like the roots of a wise old tree, they reflect standing firmly in the ground

We need our legs to be securely anchored in Nature’s shifting tides
so that we do not drown in Her undertow

May the Force Awaken when you breathe in through the top of your head
Let your Chi flow downward, draining from the soles of your feet
Feel your energy flow while sinking into the ground . . .

Know how to stand on your own two legs
Your intuition will tell you when to stick your neck out and snatch opportunities

But for now, just relax and allow things to happen organically

When situational factors call for a change in your game plan,
Meditation on Heron awakens the ability to readjust our perspective

Instead of needing to “figure it all out”, paralyzed by the minutia of problems
Trust the flow of the Universe to provide novel solutions to present themselves when the time is right

See you up the trails,
