Foxes are good role models in that they teach us how to effectively blend in to our surroundings. Moreover, they teach us how to adjust our Auric energy fields to effectively connect with our peers in community. Foxes typically backtrack, so it can be difficult to understand the timing or direction of their travels. Although they are members of the Dog family, Foxes also exhibit characteristics of Cat. Symbolically, Fox radiate the darkness of feminine energy. Given their keen sense of smell, we learn a sense of discrimination and discernment in our relationship with self and others.

In our work with children, we know the job of parenting is no easy task.  Such as with Life, balance is key. Being too permissive or too rigid might be a receipt for disaster.  Maturation does not kick in until our children learn to effectively pass through developmental changes.  Most parents want our children to have a better shake of it than we did and protect our children from pain and suffering. In that primal desire help them grow and connect with our children, sometimes we enable them and teach them ways that we did not intend and backfire. Our children frequently show us reflections of ourselves, sometimes without our awareness. When we are unconscious to this process, we tend to react to what we see them doing–often in negative ways. Those of us that feel we are more “spiritually enlightened” than our parents were, might act on the strong impulse to minister spiritual values to our children through lecture. But modeling is the most powerful form of teaching. We want our children to behave when we are not around in a similar way as when we are. Thus, it’s no secret that when an autocratic parent or teacher leaves the room, the ballyhoo starts when the dictator energy is not in the immediate area to “rule with an iron fist.”

In our global village, we are curious to see whether our Imperial friends in Congress will vote for discrimination or level the workplace playing field for our GLBTQ brothers and sisters with the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. Will current leadership vote for more of George Orwell 1984 like technological surveillance in our lives or will we see more transparency in our relationships with business and government? Regarding the Monsanto Protection Act, our hats off to Connecticut when our beloved Constitution State became the first state to pass a GE labeling law. Before we proliferate Frankenfoods, shouldn’t we plant seeds into more organic farming methods, where we pay our environmentally conscious farmers a livable wage for doing the right thing that is in alignment with Mother Nature? And let’s call a spade a spade here . . . Dumping raw sewage in any community on Earth is discriminatory. Why do we still have communities divided by railroad tracks and other barriers to equality? “Can’t we all just get along?” We humans have really struggled with coexistence. It is time to move forward into an awareness of mutual aid in our relationships with one another. Imagine a foxy world where a freedom fighter like Natan Blanc can freely come out into the open field for being a conscientious objector, rather than be locked up in prison by a criminal Empire.

When we respect our self and others, we disarm our entanglement with ego and allow Spirit to manifest in our physical vessels. Being with Fox is not about hiding or being sneaky, although that is working its energy in the negative. Rather, working with the energy of Fox in the positive is staying on track and being discrete within our own footsteps, without stepping on the toes of another. When we wake up to the reality of inner peace, we know a Higher quality of respect than what the lower vibration of what fear and violence yields. Becoming an embodiment of inner peace sows the seeds of love that cross-pollinate across the plane of our beloved Mother Earth.

See you further on down the trails,

Has anyone out there seen the Twilight film saga?  Beneath the surface of the film’s scintillating radiance or dismissing it as merely a pop-culture hit, I prefer taking an Eagle eye view, rather than a cursory glance.  I remember a brotherly friend commenting last week that “flying high gives us a perspective we cannot have when holding our stuff so close.  And as tempting as it is to leave it all behind, it may be easier to chop off an arm or a leg.”  I couldn’t agree with him more.  When We shapeshift Our Selves from how We appear externally to others, We transform into something greater than Our little ego, into the Light of Consciousness within.  And as that happens, We begin to see the world around Us change before Our eyes.  Easter Sunday is a good reminder to know the “I Am” Christ Consciousness within You.  It doesn’t matter what religion, if any, that You belong to or don’t belong to.  We need to move beyond beliefs, mental concepts and worshiping the bigoted God of Opinion that puts the voice of the ego in charge, rather than the deeper, soulful Presence of Who We Really Are.

While missing out at our last communal gathering was the death of me, one of my brothers at The Clubhouse reminded me that part of Buddhist philosophy is to walk the razor’s edge of life–without getting too swayed in any direction, while releasing Our attachments along the Way.  Moreover, whether feeling madly in love with a partner, enraged that Facebook plans to exclude women on its board when it goes public, the recent Trayvon Martin slaying or the greedy 1% top dawgs sitting like phat cats atop the pyramid hoarding the resources from the 99 % of Us–We need to learn to walk in the center of the circle in a balanced way a la “one foot in spirit, one foot in ground.”  Easier said than done when Goliath bullies David to the point where David has had enough and fights back, in much the same way as when “Jeremy spoke in class today.”  No, I don’t know the experience of being pulled over for DWB (driving while black), but I do understand what it’s like to be profiled and looked upon as an outcast.  I don’t have to tunnel very far down into the roots of my own family tree to remember Great Grandfather being attacked in his own home, taken away and beaten by the Ku Klux Clan for being a Catholic Italian-American immigrant, whom slaved in the coal mines, before Unions and the New Deal helped level corporate greed and exploitation. 

How many of You out there have been revisited recently by folks from your past in Your consciousness?  What do those relationships from Our past have to teach Us about Our Selves and Our developmental process here on Classroom Mothership Earth?  Isn’t it interesting that Hitler said that if he had it his way, he’d prefer to come back to the USA because we had a much greater harness on propaganda than Nazi Germany?  And that was Zen my friend and this is right Tao.  Now We have a Corporate Media led conservative business like Fox News that reveal the tension of opposites by calling their news “fair and balanced”, but like in George Orwell’s 1984, behind the “telescreen”, We see the opposite is true.  In my dreaming of a free for service economy, We co-create novel ways to pool together Our resources in win-win scenarios by thinking systemically.  We celebrate Diversity in Unity and stay afloat on an equilateral triangle.  In my spirited dance, my plea to the top dawgs asserts that We can all win and You really won’t know the difference because You will still be on top and will feel better about sharing because it won’t feel like a charitable duty and sacrifice.  Really, it will feel as natural as crystal clear water!

Stay True,

Ari
