Opossum and Skunk are sensible reminders for mindfulness
in the areas of respecting personal boundaries
How many of us say we want to be seen and heard?
But when push comes to shove, that desire does take magical wizardry
In the sense of spiritual intention and commitment . . .
It’s easier to manipulate others and fool yourself into buying
into the smoke and mirrors of a manmade fun house
On the other hand, playing games without even realizing it
is just part of learning how to be human
Ignorance may be bliss, but we might as well
see the eminence front for the put-on as it is
The spiritual journey is a playground . . .
You have an opportunity to flirt with growing pains
but hopefully without choosing strategic diversions that bring on more suffering
Consider listening instead to internal sound waves encouraging
you to hear amplified acoustics of your personal growth
Do this without second guessing your intuitive knowing . . .
Cross over the fence to the love and truth
of your soul’s naturalistic development
Even in the gravely sobering realm of stoic seriousness
There is a court jester that plucks at your heartstrings
How do we make friends with that?
On this Father’s Day, may we know welcome the peak sunlight
of yang’s outward movement . . .
But let us remember the balance of the sun and the moon –
equality between masculine and feminine energies are always in flux
Picture Nature’s theatrical revelation of equal energetic alignment
on Spring and Fall Equinoxes
Sunlight hits its zenith this week on Summer Solstice . . .
And yet, dark days are simmering within inner cauldrons
Until reaching their summit on the forthcoming Winter Solstice in December
Till the next trailhead junction,
Nice piece Ari. Gave me some peace after reading it.
