After passing the peak of Yang-Masculine energy of yesterday’s Summer Solstice, our spirits climaxed in that Light. Now we Turtle along Yinward with the mysterious rising of Dark-Feminine energy, though we often think of summer as outward growth and being playfully social like Butterfly. We have discussed before in this blog that every moment carries a death and a rebirth. In the sense that Butterfly is symbolic of transformation, we can open up our consciousness to the idea of Reincarnation by raising our awareness. From this vantage point, we can expand our idea of Reincarnation to include past lives and future lives beyond this physical lifetime. This is somewhat akin to genetic memory. We see that we are multidimensional spiritual beings having human experiences. Today, we understand that we all have star-dust encoded in our DNA. Given that the double helix looks like a figure 8 (the sign of infinity), meditation on that helps us wake-up to creating ourselves anew and waking up to the realm of possibility. If our taste buds change and bodies change every seven years, then why resist this process with devilishly fixed ideas?

We have recorded and reported stories of our connection to the cosmos in our archives. In the defended position of “national security”, the truth about our Universal brothers and sisters has been kept hidden from us. Regardless of what you believe, our reality is that we are living in a time where the existence of UFO’s and extraterrestrials lives within our collective consciousness, like the proverbial “elephant in the room” within a family affected by addiction. It really isn’t about being “out there” or “far out”–what matters is what we allow ourselves to integrate into our personal worldview. When the veils thin, will we welcome them into our Earth family with open arms? It appears that our Imperial Leadership Team feels entitled and justified in maintaining a top-down, “rule by few” idea about governing the business of our Planet. Basically, the old idea says that the reality of our Universal brothers and sisters should be kept hidden from us by keeping us in the dark, like Plato’s Cave. Why not shed light on the truth about their relationship with our human family? But the Majority position prefers to go unexamined. Come on guys, it is time to come out of the closet and let your light shine too.

We witnessed this nuance play out when a news story revealed that a woman was fired from her job in the corporate media for inadvertently allowing a Freudian slip of “sex” to come out of her mouth. Really? The advertising industry makes an intentional killing by selling sex through overt and covert advertising campaigns to push products on us by tapping in to our primal sexual urges, drives and instincts. Was Bill Clinton fired (fired from what) for calling President Obama a “wuss” recently? Isn’t that like dropping the “n-bomb”, slick Willie? Doesn’t it feel like our esteemed Leadership holds a fixed view of themselves as above the laws they craft for us to follow? If we are expected to be held accountable for our actions, why are they tax-exempt from paying our money down? Do they not realize that their actions speak louder than words and that modeling is the most powerful form of teaching? I don’t know what kind of black sorcery “moderate Republican” Bill Clinton and his Elitist friends in the Empire are practicing, but I know their allegiance to an old paradigm is dying. It seems like they are hellbent on manifesting a self-fulfilling prophecy of leading the cavalry to the “eve of destruction”. But “issues with intimacy” will do that and we all have our part to do in transforming our intimacy so within, as without. Love is the answer. We all need to wake up to that in these dangerous times by moving further away from the force of fear and closer to the power of love. May we remember the saying, “let go and let God”.

Summer is a hot time for manifestation. It is always wise to remember gratitude. When we carry an “attitude of gratitude” we are in alignment with Nature and Great Spirit. Hanging out in the energy field of manipulation and power and control is bad medicine for transcending Karma, the law of cause and effect. At the end of the day, Karma revisits and grounds you as it has been asked to do, whether realized or not. Developmentally, humanity is at a crossroads. On the one hand, we have the old world idea that membership has its privileges. This idea believes that our Planet is a playground that should be exploited for maximum economic profit for a minority of benefactors and trashed accordingly. This internally polluted idea reflects in the nightmare that we have invested in and bought into. Any challenge to this paradigm has been met with both subtle and provocative force to control against transformation. The other idea that is awakening and cross-pollinating our consciousness is that we are all One, albeit colorful and diverse expressions of that Oneness. What we do to the self, we do to the other. Our actions have consequences, some of them unintended. If a Butterfly flaps its wings, this can affect Climate Change. If a Butterfly flitting about could potentially create a ripple effect for a Tsunami, then imagine what we are capable of. Meditation on Butterfly is good medicine to change ourselves from the inside out. When we change the way we look at something, what we look at changes and we become the change we want to see in the world. There is a reality to the perception of doom and gloom. But there is also a reality to Butterfly opening up our Hearts to smile! If you can hold the tension of those opposites, just make a conscious choice to focus on the “Chi” of Butterfly! Spiritually, this is how we transform lead into gold through inner alchemy. We elevate our consciousness by realizing that spirit literally matters.

See you further on down the trails,

I remember an encounter I had recently, when I observed a teacher carrying a jar with a praying mantis to share with her students in their classroom.  I love when teachers use the natural world to tap into their students organic curiosity about the world around them and connect that to what they are learning in school.  Although resources in public education are limited, I just love witnessing some evidence of positive momentum in nurturing a sense of community and harmony in our schools.  In an urban Chicago school, a powerful mantra is built into their culture that says, “it’s OK to walk away.”  When meditating on praying mantis medicine, we hear the ring tone of stillness speaking to us.  I wonder how many internal martial arts and meditation students consume the energy of this curious insect?  When we allow ourselves to venture deeply into our souls through dreaming, positive thinking, being present and remembering to just breathe consciously, we allow ourselves to elevate our consciousness and move into to realms and open up to new possibilities.  This happens when we choose to see the silver lining and make only positive interpretations.  Easier said than done.  But deer can help us tap into a sense of wonder and curiosity, while gently luring us into new adventures.  Moreover, when chewing on deer’s spirited power, we become less jerky and more aware of our bodies informing us and listening to our gut, the seat of our instinctual selves.  Can’t you hear the earworm of Master Jedi Obi Wan Kenobi saying, you must feel the Force (Chi) around you?  There is an energy, a Kingdom of Heaven that is there for all of us to see, if only we take a moment to notice. 

Did anyone out there catch the wind blowing smoke of the Democratic National Convention recently?  In our business run society, does anyone notice that the political party that fronts itself a party that welcomes everyone, is bribed by the same largesses that it’s so-called villain on the other side of the aisle?  But the truth is that there are no enemies.  We are all part of the web of life, though we are diverse strands in the living web.  What we do to that web, we do to ourselves.  Is Coke or Pepsi Democrat or Republican?  If we are to move beyond political rhetoric and our attachments to our beliefs, then we will actualize a new vision of our nation, our Mother and the Universe throughout.  In this sphere, we will co-create a New World of Unity Consciousness and celebrate the good times of our diversity.  Until we disarm our internal weapons of mass destruction and let go of our attachments to feeling inferior and/or superior to another person, tribe, community, country, etc., we will remain caught up in the collective nightmare we have woven for ourselves.  Isn’t it obvious that the corporate media thrives off the blame game drama that unfolds in front of our eyes on the tele, while distracting us from the truth with their smokescreen?  What would happen if we took the profit out of campaigns and politicians had access to free air time–would they be as tempted lie, be fake and on the take?  I can’t think a more delicious feast that advocates for everyone in a new American Dream that offers a safety net for all Earth’s citizens.  One of the key points from the book entitled, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People talks about co-creating win-win solutions by finding a third and different way.  The dinosaurs in charge do not really want to scale back their old ways that are no longer working.  The Country Club on Capitol Hill that includes both Democrats and Republicans is a club that seeks to protect the opulent minority against the overwhelming majority.  Yes, the master illusionism cleverly use the dark side of social science to pull the wool over their audience.  But if you listen carefully to the eloquent speeches of moderate Republican, candidates of Wall Street like Bill Clinton and President Obama, you will clearly hear in their position a band-aid approach to maintain the status quo of our current global economy and tweaking of the current system.  All these guys are offering us are some cheap umbrellas for protection and shelter from the storm, if you will.  Regardless of which candidate wins, we all lose until we do something different that getting too swayed from the Middle Way and over-indulging in the dog and pony shows.  Indeed, membership has its privileges and many of the top dawgs simply don’t want to share those privileges with the rest of us.  

Here in the USA, most of our tax dollars go toward the Pentagon and fuel the military-industrial complex.  In our commercial driven culture, much of our economy is fueled by marketing.  What would happen if those resources were leveled and more equally spent on delivering quality education to nurture all our children’s creativity in the classroom of life?  I remember an old saying that goes something like, “fair is that everyone gets what they need, not what they want.”  Isn’t equal access to resources a fair shake?  Now I have heard some folks, particularly the educated business class, frown at leveling movements like Occupy Wall Street and criticize the sense of entitlement of youth culture, the poor and oppressed and those of us that fall through the cracks.  However, here in America, we like to point fingers and criticize without realizing that a mirror is being held up for us to see reflections of ourselves.  Is humanity evolving into our Higher Selves when we adopt devolution as a personal mantra to justify our economic success?  Instead of God Bless America, we adopt in our hearts God Bless humanity and all sentient beings.  Each one of us walks in the center of the Universe, while none of us are special, Chosen or saved.  We are all cut from the same cloth.  When we pray with Mantis and meditate on deer, we gently allow ourselves to remember stillness speaking to us and welcome new adventures.  This is merely one way to effectively transition into a New Age and Paradigm.

Stay True,

Ari
