Opossum Gets Skunked

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,

Ari
