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.

Sunlight reaches its peak on the summer solstice in later June . . .
At this junction Bee becomes more active
by shining Its sweetness across our planet

There are imperial deep pockets that fuel
commercially driven insecticides and pesticides
that sell us crime rhymes spitting that the only good bee is a dead one

But those of us that are in alignment with the pulse of our planet know better . . .

No bees, no flowers
How fragrant would that be?

But the dark side of a business-centric supremacist hive mentality
threatens their existence and our own by way of killer agents sprayed
on the fruited plains of our classroom know as Earth

What would we do without the fruits of their labor?
What would we do without healthy seeds in this Garden?

See honey as a metaphor for a natural elixir of
love, fertility, industry and sexuality

It takes a nation of remote-controlled drones to hold us back . . .

Working in masculine drones, bees epitomize a strong work ethic –
This active yang approach mirrors rising energetic sunlight

But Queens Bee rules the roost – so their habitat hints at a matriarchal society
Yet paradoxically their culture is a hierarchy

Turn yinward and look deeply into your feminine right brain self

We can learn interdependence from Bee
Realizing that fluid synergistic top-down and bottom up communication
is necessary for our survival during movement into a New Age

What’s the buzz about unisex bathrooms?
We are moving into more androgynous times
Abuses already happen in clearly segregated designations

Sort of like “free speech zones”
More official zones equals less free speech

Do you need to examine your own sexuality or your attitudes toward sex in general?

Watch the influx of refugees stream into Western/First World Nations
Challenging us to redefine our sense of cultural identity

A planet without bees is a world without flowers and fruits
Talk about a buzz killer

Bees know there is power in numbers . . .
We should adopt that wisdom when it comes to a Critical Mass that
tips the scale of collective consciousness into a positive dimensional shift

Waking up to the power of transformation will transcend the conventional logic of
even our most celebrated and brilliant minds

Take a moment to stop and smell the fruits of your labor . . .
and the fruits of the present moment in the Zen of right Tao

Bees are symbolic of the sun and his spirited energies . . .

A wake up call to drink in Life’s honey through the
Power of Love, fertility, industry and sexuality

A Tribe Called Bee represents . . .
Groupwork and the power of community –
Without sacrificing our individuality by getting stuck in hive mentality

Working in masculine drones, bees epitomize a strong work ethic –
A parallel process to humanity’s conservative Labor Movement
Queens rule the roost – so their society hints at matriarchal
Paradoxically their culture is hierarchical

The top-down world we live in has roots that are deeply planted
In the underground of our subconscious minds
But Nature has strong leveling impulses to a
Cross-Pollinate a more equitable New Earth
Where flowering power is shared

We dream of a world that does not give liberal affirmative action
To only those with big bank accounts
Out of the primordial, feminine darkness . . .
Dreams of an egalitarian planetary consciousness –
Are wanting to come out and dance in the sunlight

Past Bruce now Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation
Reveals our cultural sprint toward
Crossing over into the shores of celebrating diversity in Unity

Do yo need to examine your own sexuality or your attitudes toward sex in general?

We are healing our polarity

The sting of political correctness glosses over deeper issues with
Superficial “life support systems”
But flying with a playful sense of humor
Sees the light behind this black comedy of errors

Class War is as hot as ever
Fueled by a well-oiled but dirty and unsustainable Stock Exchange
Old World “tinder boxes” are ready to ignite
These are dangerously fiery times we are living in

Movement into a New Age and Paradigm flows into
Rising tides of strong feminine power
We are leaving behind a dominant patriarchical world view
that fears the Sacred Feminine

But the dark night of yin wants to come out of the closet and express herself
This does not mean “sugar and spice and everything nice”

Nor does it mean reacting to our emotions
with stinging volatility or closeted elegant repression

We are witnessing a mass exodus of Bees
Genocide by poisonous pesticides
But they do return once we stop using these toxins

A planet without bees is a world without flowers and fruits
Talk about a buzz killer

“A good worker is a happy worker”

Like bees, humans know there is power in numbers . . .
Dig in to unearth a deeper message beneath the command –
“Be fruitful and multiply”

Are you working too much or not being industrious enough?
Are you taking time to smell the roses and enjoy the fruits of your labor?

Let us spread Love by ringing the Liberty Bell of equality
Get up and stand up to corporate power by asserting that our
Big Businesses should literally stop “killing it” –
It is time to let go of a bottom line intention of maximum economic profits

Bee are helpful guides in the pursuit of our dreams
Sunlight is rising toward its summit on Summer Solstice later on this month
Masculine-Light-Yang is action oriented
Reflecting Nature’s pole vault toward outer growth

A Full Moon awakens our dreaming realities
with subtleties of perception . . .
Are you the dreamer or the dreamed?

Purity of thought means holding focus of a positive thought without distraction.
Isn’t this a mindful conversational feedback loop
you would powerfully like to dream into your daily walking meditation?

Or has being lulled into a hypnotic trance by a computer device caught your fancy?

And here we are gently allowing cumulative effect to take root . . .
With patient appreciation for subtle hints of changing seasons.

Bee flies by serving a friendly reminder that life is sweet like honey . . .

Before long, Autumn will descend with greater emphasis –
on getting organized and down to business.

Are you reacting with negative vibes to the weather underground?
Or are you examining what is going on down under with
a curious and empathic gaze?

See yourself as a strong person who is confidently willing
to express yourself and share your gifts with our world.

Tune into the realm of possibilities . . .
To preview what potential outcomes are mutually beneficial for everyone.
Remember to summon empathy and dance with grace under fiery emotions . . .

Energy cannot be created or destroyed.
But it can be transformed.
What role does energy play in your life?

When unexpected deviations from plans arrive –
Try to relax into that.

Inner Peace is making friends with all aspects of your Being.
This includes our shadow and ego entities – they are not enemies to be killed.
Does your shadow follow you around like an obedient dog –
Representing a tribe of your hopes, fears or whatever you are resisting?

Like our lower Chakras –
Merely informants on our quest are they.

“American people are the new Indians of the 21st Century.”
Privately squatted by the Empire’s Powers that Be
Profiting off the backs of workaholism is modern slavery.
Smells of imperial tyranny . . .

Service is a carrot of payment back in kind
Rabbit in me says lettuce hit rewind
May our souls carry a heavy burden of past incarnations?
Inspiration to rework our issues through gradual confrontational self-reflection
Loosens up our entanglement with form,
while lightening up our emotional reactions

We have the right to remain silent
To hear stillness speaking spiritually
Might we consider it culturally?
And yet singing songs of freedom vocally!

Honesty and gentleness in relationship
facilitates a mutual understanding
Allowing our inner voices to come outside and play
Giving birth to our creative power

Taking pleasure in our daily list clears space for awakened doings
Cleansing the doors of perception cultivates peace of mind
Being positive hits our internal reset buttons

We are all psychics – from empathic connections
To anticipating rush hour commutes
(and) taking alternative routes
Staying grounded while becoming aware that we aware
Sometimes the logical mind does not compute . . .

Making paradoxical friends with wanting more and having everything we need
Crow medicine shows us everyday “magic in the mundane”
Transmutes ordinary moments into extraordinary Polaroids
Weaving in creativity into our mental lists

Infusing perceptual shifts of spiritual energy
A ray of light shining on in our shared world of form
Recapture a little of the glory of
through the mind-set of a child
carrying a light-hearted air

You have a right to be serious and uptight
but that gravitational pull can be a downer
Especially in a hurried shower . . .

In our travels, remember our rituals and routines
in tote with items of power

Tell me Syngenta, Bayer, Monsanto and Donagrosciences . . .
How does a bee reach Nirvana with neonicotinoid-insecticides?

Two hawks fly by on Valentine’s Day
An embodied omen that spirited physical movement cultivates fluidity
Viewing new vistas during our Earth Walkabout
Pushing our edges and trimming our borders
Being an active participant in the Life’s theater

Gently letting anxiety and waning Full Moon pass with care
to Occupy an inner peace World’s Fair

Bees embody busyness and symbolize being industrious, concentration, activity, group communication and connection with family and social networks. Their energy forecasts busy times ahead. Bees are productive members of our worldly society and make honey, the elixir of Life. Drinking in their energy reminds us that Life is sweet, as Bees represents wealth, prosperity, and hard work paying off. When we see bees, we might “bee” prompted to organize and structure our outer and inner worlds. Their spirited teachings also reflect our need to live for our shared collective consciousness.

In our developing World, Bees inspire an awareness of cooperation and competition in our work and interactions with one another. Bees communicate that good business practice means “one worker, one vote in a competitive, profitable enterprise. But the profits don’t go to the top, they go to every person that has a stake in the enterprise. So you have everybody invested in the company, everybody wants it to succeed. If it operates in this matter, you don’t have bitter labor fights, you don’t have companies going under, employees losing their jobs and executives becoming millionaires. Instead, you have a lot of people making a fair salary.” I hardly think any Bees would be sued for being effective whistleblowers for the sake of the betterment of the hive. As humanity wakes up to win-win interactions in our work and play, we open up to welcoming abundance in our affairs. We all have gifts to share in our contribution to a more fair and just society.

Bees also symbolize reincarnation. Being present in this area facilitates communication with the dirge of our old selves, reminding us of who we used to be. Sometimes, it can be hard to let go of who we once were. “That’s just the way we’ve always done it.” We might find ourselves neatly packaged in a box of how others think we should be or how we see ourselves. But learning to trust and let go of the process of our unfolding is good medicine. Is your soul asking you to fly into new zones? Are you producing enough or enjoying the fruits of your labor? Are you so busy that you never have time to do what you want? Are you pregnant with an idea, fertile with your creativity and/or need to examine your own sexuality or attitudes toward sex in general? “Speaking words of wisdom” it’s OK to “let it be”.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink”. It is good to remember that the Kingdom of Heaven is within our Being. Sometimes, picturing a waterfall or even going for a swim cools us down to see the forest for the trees. This also has a cleansing effect on our mind-body-spirit so that we do not get too submerged. Consuming the energies of Bee and the New Moon on Monday can help you stay connected and in alignment with your soul’s sacred journey while on Earth. Trusting that the Universe will provide and unfold as it needs to helps us drink in Life and quench our thirst for action and results. Sometimes it is challenging to sit with tension that arises from our expectations that we will enjoy the fruits of our labor and see the results of that hard work. Being consumed with anxiety can block us from allowing ourselves to stop and smell the roses. Please give yourself permission to do whatever you can to “be here be now” in your travels.

I remember taking in a sweet breath of life recently and couldn’t help but notice a bee entangled in a spider web.  Some moments later, I felt tangled up in blue as I observed the spider drinking in life by draining the bee’s righteous Chi.  Perhaps some folks would judge the spider as a killer and sentence him to a death sentence as well.  But Nature has Her own way and in this case and as I look back, this experience past was the death of all of us.  In fact, Autumn has arrived here in the Northern Hemisphere and the leaves greenery are waning, while the vibrant colors are waxing.  Masculine summer’s light is also waning, as we are naturally slowing down and welcoming the darkness of night rising.  Light and dark are in equal alignment with one another, reminding us that balancing our energies is natural, if not normal.  We all have masculine and feminine energies waxing and waning within our Beings, always in flux, whether realized or not.  Nothing against cosmetic surgery and performance enhancement drugs, but I wonder how costly these enterprises would be if human beings were supported and encouraged to naturally find comfort in our own skins?  Would it be so challenging to find that deep place of self-esteem that says to thyself, I’m OK.  Although watching a bee get whacked was unsettling in the sense that the bee was part of me, at the same time, I thanked the bee for bringing balance to the Force by offering itself to spider and sharing its consciousness with the rest of us.  Perhaps we won’t see any bees for a while, but we are still capable of ingesting their medicine by meditating on the sweetness of life.  Maybe burning a candle made of beeswax will rekindle their power and facilitate the cross-pollination process in raising the consciousness of the planet as we approach the Winter Solstice in December, the darkest day of the year.  What will happen at this significant time on Nature’s cycle? 

Does anyone in the participatory audience remember when Beatles founding father John Lennon sang the anthem Give Peace A Chance?  Well, as I reflect on the Autumn Equinox and Peace on Earth, let it begin with me.  And if you are reading, let it begin with you.  My soulful wife once gave me a card that reminded me that peace does not come from being in an environment of comfortable bliss surrounding me like a security blanket.  Rather, peace is found in the depths of a calm heart, even when chaos abounds.  For the record, I know some of you appreciate and enjoy the way this blog playfully weaves the spirited animal energy into the material realm, while conjuring up positive vibes that feel good.  If that is the case, then perhaps it conjures up empathy for the drug addict that tries to stay high all the time in the ether because hitting the ground is too painful and suffering, though inevitable, is avoided at all costs.  But a key dynamic in the spiritual path is that meditation shows us inconvenient truths about ourselves in that quiet space.  We have the potential to get to know ourselves on a deeper level and make friends with that.  However, I also recognize and appreciate that some readers, like the drug addict, do not like the smack down that they feel when this blog explores the harsh realities that are happening on our planet today.  While I appreciate this position, the mystic swims in the waters the addict drowns in.  This blog will continue to explore healing the polarity consciousness that currently divides us on Mother Earth and co-facilitate the transition into a New Age and Paradigm, where we celebrate the good times of Diversity within Unity.  Instead of God Bless America, we say God Bless The Planet and Universe throughout.  When I gaze on the lyrics of Genesis, it’s almost as if I can hear Peter Gabriel singing let us create humankind in our image.  Now I realize that everything should be taken with a grain of salt.  Moreover, a conservative interpretation of these lyrics, for those who like to take things literally, could be that we were genetically engineered by advanced beings from another planet.  Perhaps a more liberal perspective might view God as a transcendent Collective Energy that allows for the evolution of His-Her co-creation that illuminates as we wake up from our slumber, here on Mothership Earth.  Yes, there is a concrete sense of security in a dogmatic fixed idea of believing in a white man sitting up on a hierarchical throne with a gavel deciding who is permitted to join the Country Club and whom will be punished in a slow roast.  But Heaven and Hell are subjective inner states of consciousness that are reflected in our outer reality.  All we really have is right now, this precious moment that is always eternal.

As humans, when we get stuck in our fixed ideas and box ourselves in the ghettos of the mind with intellectual concepts and emotional reactions thereof, we tend to experience security in our consciousness that tastes like comfort food.  However, as we move onward in our collective assent, we expand and open up to the increasing spirited energies that are streaming in our planet right Tao.  Some folks will react to these energies unconsciously and that is their right.  Yes, there are more natural disasters, wars, poverty, famines and disconnection among the human factor with relation to Nature, though paradoxically more technologically connected.  But there is security in knowing that there is predictability in unpredictability.  If one way doesn’t work, another way will.  Together, we climb onward in surface and depth, one breath, one moment, one step at a time. 

Stay True,

Ari
