Do you hear Cardinal whistling a prequel
to the intensities of Summery breezes blowing in the wind?

When I think about suicide, and reflections of some of Anthony’s Bourdain’s
comments about his own arrested development, tasting desperate, privilege,
and the tension of opposites he felt about his
personal wrestling with the interplay between order and chaos . . .

I can understand how he would have had enough of
the pain and suffering in this world, and felt like it was time to check out

Truth is, it can be hard to suck it up, get up,
and keep moving forward in the natural school of Hard Knox . . .

The trick is to learn how to make friends with your inner angels and demons,
and integrate your past selves with the new beginnings of your rebirth . . .

Can you hear Cardinal’s virtuous voice singing
songs about the winds of change blowing in?

Her chorus echoes a callback about empowering us to transition
into the vibration of an innate feminine power!

Perhaps you see yourself as a generalized, intense masculine charged,
get things done, taskmaster doer!

That’s OK, so long as you don’t get identified with that role
Otherwise, you can bet your bottom dollar on a slippery slope ahead . . .

Connect with your heart, let her light your way with your head held high,
with a wide angled gaze in your field of vision . . .

It can be challenging to tune into Nature’s mixed messages that blow in
different directions around our Planet

On one perch, Cardinal reminds us to nurture our own life force –
But too much fire from the sun’s rays can burn you at the stake

Might as well remember to wax on our creative energies
and wash our feminine selves with the watery tides of our intuitive faculties

Time to come out of hiding behind the shadows,
and let your inner light shine like the sun

Meditation on Cardinal’s energy awakens
exploration of traditional, old school values . . .

These re-discoveries are divergent planetary systems of thought
from unconventional beliefs that are worth remembering

Masculine yang gains ground,
while Summer Solstice reveals peak sunlight later this month,

Follow the moonlight toward the Monty of a Full Strawberry Moon
when it bears its fruit at the tail end of the June . . .

See you next time along the trails,

Transitions can be challenging . . .

But in every death by transient transitions,
there is a birth of opportunity . . .

Butterfly floats into our fields of vision . . .

Do you see that a gentle and soft perspective of yourself
can lighten-up to the vibe that the fruits of change is natural?

When we open our eyes to looking through a spectacle of trust,
we are better prepared for new times floating in

Our challenges awaken the opportunity to dissolve old ideas –
simultaneously creating new possibilities

There is nothing to be afraid of during transitions . . .
Even physical death is a transition

We landed into this world to become mortal . . .

Our physical bodies are finite, but our souls
do have a natural impetus to awaken to a mythical quest

Butterflies can remind us to flit about with joy in our hearts . . .

Life can be sweet like honey – if only we allow for it!

Till the next trail head,

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!

See you up the trails,

Saturday’s Full Pink Moon symbolizes the early
arrival of flowers and vegetation during Spring

It has been said that the violence is waking us up . . .

Here we are making the transition from the death of Winter
into the birth of Spring . . .

Love overcomes fear of loss, abandonment, and attachments

During these times of purification, may we power our
April’s cleansing showers with a sunshine and rainbow mantra
of giving peace a chance on the inside and out!

Some say that the truth hurts.
And sometimes, hearing truth stinks like mulch . . .

But we can be gentle in how we speak our truths.
Let us become gentle on ourselves when we hear it from spirit!

Given all the talk about fake news out there today,
now is an opportune time to walk home with Chickadee

When their tweets speak to us, they are helping us connect
and rise up to hearing the singing voices of our Higher Selves

Mercury in Retrograde resurrects revisited experiences with old selves,
past lives, and relationships from yesteryear . . .

Yeah, old habits may die-hard.

But you don’t have to be salty or sugar coat truth
when speaking from a place of personal authority!

In that light, it can’t hurt to invest in loss by heeding the spiritual wisdom to
diminish our collective dietary intake of sugar and salt . . .

After all, we are what we eat, and our bodies are
portals to consciousness explored!

Till next time up the trails,

In this waning New Moon and Chinese-Lunar Year . . .

May we allow Dog to guide us with faithful loyalty . . .
Serving as protection us in this 2018 year ahead

Winter is here, but Spring’s beauty is just around the corner

What is real, and what is normal?

Is normality a manic stock market, bloated military-industrail complex,
coupled with a profiling notion that there is winner/losers,
and you get what you deserve?

Does that kind of status quo, business as usual mind-set sound nuts to you?

Can you imagine what our planet would look like without big monied peddled
corporate products, and weaponry that are intellectually
designed with the intent to kill capacity crowds of Earth’s creatures at large?

Talk about wrestling our planetary consciousness into
a body slam that puts global politics in a systemic sleeper hold!

That being said, I can appreciate Dog’s unconditional
patient, and kind understanding of human shortcomings . . .

Regardless of past abuses, dogs don’t stop coming back or
quit teaching us about meditation on trust

It almost makes you think we are descendants of their kind,
and that we have their traits encoded in our DNA

Are we barking up similar trees?

May the energies of an early Spring astrological eclipse season
help you move into the change you want to see in the world!

Won’t be long before masculine/feminine/yin/yang/light/dark
energies are equal again in both hemispheres . . .

Our friends in the South understand Autumn energies are kicking in –
where they will be moving further into the dark

But in the North, we’ll be moving toward the light,
where an action-oriented catalyst provides incentive for crocuses to spring up!

See you further along the trails,

A Western New Year approaches, as does a
Full Wolf Moon at the beginning of January . . .

Let us heed the echoes of Wolf’s heartbeat!
Tracking into February, comes the arrival of the Chinese/Lunar New Year of the Dog

Meditate on the spiritual energy of Dog to walk into new energies –
that awakens pathways into a deeper compassion for all of humanity,
in spite of our human shortcomings that bubble up in our wake . . .

Consider taking your repeated exposure to your:

hate-oriented images of Donald Trump, a miserly Wall Street,
reptilian minded friends in Congress
(that metaphorically represent an obsessive, manipulative, controlling, and
down right abusive dying old world power structure that pits us against one another)

And replacing them instead:

With new pictures of Love and Light!
At the end of the day, that’s how we disarm the Beast as within, so without

Let us heed the call to scale back the toxicity of a dog eat dog mentality,
and seductive militaristic fantasies of a global fascist state

Not Israel, nor any other single nation-state should be designated as an
offshore base or be given preferential capital for global supremacy!

We should all be getting the message of oneness,
and equal opportunity in a multi-polar new world!

Everyone’s intrinsic talents should be
cultivated and developed to their fullest potential

But not at the expense of stepping on someone else who falls through the cracks!

Violence, and security systems that build walls that prohibit freedom of speech,
Should be examined with a reflective, and heartfelt intellectual examination . . .

Our world, and one’s personal spiritual evolution depends on
self-reflection, and forward free-thinking!

May this New Year bring you much wellness, inner joy, following your bliss,
a relaxation on ego-driven emotional reactions, and a forgiving attitude
to inspire our planet, and universal consciousness!

See you further up the trails,

Ari
