Bee Real

Bees remind us to bear witness to the
cross-pollination strength of a critical mass . . .

The fruits of our labor set us free when it
comes to spreading Love and Truth

A soul’s individual identity knows its personal authority
without sacrificing the group identity of the hive mentality . . .

Reverse engineering, technological advances, and trickle down communication
still lags behind the powerful humanity of our evolutionary potential . . .

Fixed ideas and burying our heads in the changing sands of time
serve as roadblocks to thinking outside the box thinking . . .

If only we pour our resources into holistic health care, teaching-based
disciplinary approaches and restorative justice,

and then relaxing market driven forces that
proliferate weaponizing technological advances . . .

Do you feel the stinging truth of this kind of stupidity?

In much the same way as the vibrational shift of Golden Age consciousness,
life should be sweet like honey!

May we allow our souls to shift the way we perceive the world,
so that we see the world transforms before our eyes . . .

Yeah, digesting bitter is a growing epidemic that spreads
along the fruited plains of our modern world . . .

Take in the experience of Tuesday’s fragrant Full Flower Moon and see the power
of picturing yourself like water gaining momentum gradually in our collective soulful tides . . .

Remember that people have the sovereign right to be who they are!
Quit taking their actions personally . . .

Building empathy is a clear energetic pathway into inner peace.

Meditation with Catbird delivers us into soulful songs of communication

Reclaiming your inner child is a high-minded note in the key of soul power

It can be hard not to develop an attitude in these hard times
and have chip on your shoulder

And it is understandable how an activist would have a problem
with trusting authority figures in an institutionally racist regime

But that is why it’s ever so important to take the higher road
of peaceful and non-violent demonstration

Movements exist because there is a natural impetus for our civil rights
to have equal access to a more free and just society

But you will not relax hate with more hatred
only the power of love will hose down the evils of injustice

Internal martial arts, like water, builds momentum gradually

Perhaps in this lifetime you sit on the throne of white privilege
But maybe in a past life you were on the opposite side of that coin

The reality of your own divinity is that you have enough power
inside of your being to light a city with the clean energy of love and truth

You know the old saying that the truth will set you free

The labor pains of purification come on like a perfect storm
that rattles the shackles of economic strangulation

Visualize the dimension where a vibrational shift happens
in our collective consciousness

A New Earth is being born before our eyes
But you have to find the eyes to see it

Imagine the possibility that you can
become the change you want to see in the world

And the world around you will change before your eyes

See you next time out on the trails,

The dark side of the moon’s orbit into a New Age Consciousness
is not without its hard rains and bluesy protest songs

Might as well picture great spirit’s Blue Heron when you want to fly away
from inner passages of sinking shackles of life’s muddy waters

But you can be blue like Heron and get a leg up by standing strong on the ground
in the anchor of your personal authority

Mother’s Day is a good reminder for remembering Gaia’s gravitational pull
and our sacred connection with Her

Alignment with Her earthy energies on Tuesday’s New Moon
breathes in aggressive self-determination and internal reliance

Forgiveness has a healing power that helps reclaim the inner child of soul divinity

If you find yourself getting boxed in to fixed states of mind . . .

Let Heron guide you to trust in other ways of getting unstuck and
wade away from dirty marshes toward safer landing pads in other estuaries

Trust the security of your intuition to reveal new ways
of looking at challenges by having the higher vision to see abundant solutions!

When I think of the Nature’s imperfection, and the current human plight . . .
I remember metaphorical stories of ugly ducklings becoming swans

Living among the tragic times of today can ignite
darker temptations to become victims of circumstance . . .

The muddy waters of life can be hard not to get stuck in . . .

Do what you can to flit about like a water bug when feeling
like you are a sinking stone in the quicksands of right now

Perhaps perfect practice makes perfect . . .
But an error is only a mistake if you refuse to make corrections accordingly

Meditation of letting go of the disease to please might mean that
happiness as a way of life means building tolerance for being unliked,
and the uncomfortable feelings that accompany that natural experience

The month of May is in the air . . .
Time to spread the floral seeds of love along the fruited plains

Picture our world swimming with the grace of Swan
gently flowing down our collective stream of consciousness . . .

In the dying old world, there is a rebirth springing up . . .
But this stinking mulch merely smells like the spirited winds of change

Might as well approach misunderstandings with
positions of empathic curiosity . . .

Gaining forward progress this time of year means increasing sunlight
illuminating the shadowy remembrances of dark cold fronts . . .

Look beyond those perceptual shifts of us and them judgements,
and realize that we are all here to love each other with clean care . . .

Remember to breathe in one breath, one step, one moment at a time

Till next time up the trails,

When Kingfisher dives from the treetops into the water – in their catching fish,
these birds show us reflections of new paths, prosperity, and peace

These energies are amplified by the compassionate brightness of
Buddha’s sweet breath of a fragrant Full Pink Moon

This dying old world focuses on a rigid systemic mantra of maximum economic
profit that capitalizes on winners and losers . . .

This segregated matrix proliferates feelings of
rejection, alienation, abandonment, and isolation . . .

But Kingfisher is a healthy radical reminder that abundance is everywhere!

Life has its share of pain, trials, tribulations, and suffering
Mental illness and addiction are taking lives that matter

But Mother Earth’s children can learn from Kingfisher’s energy
that life can be harmoniously enjoyable, and prosperous as well …

New experiences and pathways of inner discovery are waiting to come untapped
Water is a source of creativity, and novel ways of thinking

When leaning into our feelings, and opening up to fluid, free thinking,
We can see down waterways toward sunlight on the horizon . . .

May we awaken our mental and spiritual faculties so that
we can cultivate intuition, and psychic perception . . .

Planted feet on the ground is a centered place for standing meditation . . .

Preface and timing are essential ingredients to luring in opportunities
But letting go of outcome is good medicine to “quit taking it personally”

Dreams and visions can help us traverse
thunderous roads of rocky mountain feelings

Meditation on forgiveness recognizes that
letting go of emotional baggage is a healthy release . . .

Here’s to wishing everyone a sensitive, and high-minded perch
that balances equality between masculine and feminine energies!

Blue Jay commingle with energies of pretending, wearing masks
and true to the self mastership

But Blue Jay doesn’t care which path you choose –
that is between you, Great Spirit, Earth and the Heavens . . .

As part of the Crow family, these spirited birds remind us
of the primal creative element of life

With Mercury coming out of Retrograde,
the fog begins to lift . . .

Rising sunlight torches any shadowy areas with the
heart and fire of compassion!

May the energies of next Sunday’s Wesak Full Moon spring forth clarity and
compassion to purify any dark areas that need to walk into the light

It is good to revisit old aspects of ourselves, so that we can move
forward into a new chapter . . .

As we shift into new dimensions, the Earth evolves into new vibrations . . .

The more of us that become the change we want to see in the world,
the greater reflection of that playing out in our everyday experiences!

May Blue Jay can guide you into co-authoring a new script of a
new you being an agent of change in alignment with a New Earth . . .

See you up the trails,

Frogs Hop In

It has been said that Frog hears thunderclouds,
and call in the rains to give our souls a spring cleaning

And here we are living in times of purification

Giving ourselves permission to grieve and experience sadness
is part of learning how to be an authentic human being

The light may be rising, but the whispering
dark nights of Winter have left their mark

Attachments to our friends, relations, and peers is part of being human

And yet it is good medicine to meditate on
letting go, releasing, and relaxing these attachments

When racing thoughts, and the anxieties of the chattering monkey mind
are weighing you down . . .

Picture a Frog with a mantra to “stop it!”

Remember when we are feeling lost and alone,
we should honor those feelings with gentle examination

At the same time, we can trust that the sunshine and rainbows are on their way

Like the Phoenix Rising, it is always darkest before dawn

Try not to get sucked into the murky quick sand of societal’s swamp

Keep your wits about you, and remember to explore
the playground of your inner tapestry with empathy and curiosity

Even if someone gives you a superficial compliment about the way you look,
just say “thank you.”

Meditation on gratitude is always an attitude adjustment
in allowing your heart to take in the love that you deserve

It’s harder to have an icy heart, when you shine the light of compassion on it

May the arriving Wesak Full Moon in later April
shower the Buddha’s light onto your soul!
