It’s The Eye Of The Tiger In The Chinese New Year on Tuesday, February 1, 2022
In Chinese Astrology, Tiger’s cycle of power is around the darkness of New Moons and the brightness of Full Moons. Specifically, this is the Year of the Tiger, according to the Chinese Lunar New Year. Unlike the Gregorian calendar that follows the Sun, the Chinese calendar follows the Moon. It is both a New Year and a New Moon on February 1, 2022.
According to ancestral legend, Tiger settled for third place in the Celestial Race, climbing out of the river believing he finished first, after the cunning Rat jumped the diligent Ox for the win. When the Buddha summoned all the animals for his first teachings, Tiger was among those creatures that showed up.
The energy of Tiger invites meditation on personal space. In general, Tiger people tend to have a strong sense of freedom, fiercely independent streak, keen sense of justice, and dream of changing the world. They are also notorious for being prideful, authoritative and self accepting. Because they have a tendency for being cute and charming, they might get away with some of their other traits like rebellion, challenging the status quo and breaking apart traditions, to the chagrin of the rule followers and protectors of conservatism.
Cats in general are nocturnal creatures that see effectively in the dark, thus representing the mystery of life. Humans can develop an attitude about cats because they do their own thing, like people that are considered free-spirited. I learned how to meditate from cats.
How can they be so relaxed, seemingly asleep and docile, and then immediately become alert, suddenly be on all fours and ready to take action?
Specifically, the spiritual energy of Tiger represents passion, power, devotion and sensuality. These areas can awaken within, especially during this year of the Tiger. New adventures can awaken new passion and power within your life.
Notice what happens to your sensitivity to touch. Sense awareness is an everyday part of mindfulness that you can breathe into the moments of your daily routine.
Human spiritual activists like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Thich Nhat Hanh were drawn to each other, influenced one another and developed a sacred bond. MLK Day is a national holiday in America and is celebrated on January 17. The Chinese New Year either falls in January or February, depending on the Moon cycle. February is Black History Month. Although these two spiritual leaders were known for their peaceful and non-violent practices, including Civil Disobedience for doing the right thing, they were considered radicals by the Establishment. King was assassinated for standing up against society’s injustices, while Hanh has spent most of his life living in exile from his native country of Viet Nam for challenging the status quo.
Meditation on the Sun and the Moon reveals the omnipresence of the Yin and Yang in Nature and how it reflects in our everyday lives.
Meditation on the Chinese symbol of the Yin and the Yang teaches us that balance is key. There will always be masculine in feminine, sun in moon, and light in dark.
Even in crisis, there is opportunity, as it says in the I-Ching.
Life is not without its darkness. In modern society, we have been taught to fear the dark, that darkness is bad or that the light is good. But this is not so because you cannot have the yang without the yin.
When you close your eyes to meditate, you are taking a step into primordial darkness, or the Womb of Life. Black is symbolic of creation, as is water.
Further movement into a New Aquarian Age supports both the identity of the individual and how they interact with the group consciousness. Diversity within Unity.
In American culture, Groundhog Day is a popularly celebrated holiday that takes place on February 2nd.
In this popular ritual, a groundhog comes out of hibernation for everyone to witness whether this creature will see its shadow or not. As the story goes, if the groundhog sees its shadow, then we will have to wait six more weeks till spring. Or if it doesn’t see his shadow, then spring will come early.
But long before that, our ancestors also honored this day as the Imbolc, or the approximate mid-point between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.
Moreover, they also realized, that the Spring (Vernal) Equinox always happens on March 20th, and reflects equality between the light and dark. After that, masculine/yang/light energies will continue to rise till their climax on the Summer Solstice on June 20th, the longest day of sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere.
Regardless, the spiritual energy of Groundhog is significant at this time, as Groundhog symbolizes death without dying. Groundhog medicine reflects that the energy of Winter is a time to go into the dark, turn inward, slow down, rest and be quiet.
This shamanic process of alchemy is when we can transform who we are now (death of the old self) through rebirth of who we are becoming (without actually dying). The death of Winter can bring grieving of the old self, whilst the rebirth of Spring can awaken seeing from new visits.
When I think about stories of Buddhist monks who set themselves on fire in protest of the injustices of occupation, I think about the sacrificial lamb/savior complex remnants of the dying Pisces Age. We will need to let go of this tendency as we surrender to the transition into the new consciousness of the Aquarian Age. We can be light of Christ Consciousness without carrying the heavy burden of the Cross. The energy of surrender helps you focus on your heart and your feelings. Surrender is necessary to let go of old patterns that prevent you from opening up your heart. Surrender makes your fear vanish.
In a Karmic sense, we can experience reincarnation in this lifetime through deaths and rebirths during the natural cycle of the season. We can intentionally work out our karma by making connections between cause and effect, and even transcending it.
Meditation on Groundhog can help you with that.
Learning to think in the death and rebirth of moments can help stimulate this process. Remember to come back to the home of your breath.
In this early stage of a New Age and Paradigm, we are facing escalating crisis and intensifying chaos. All you have to do is look at the outer world events and turn within to and feel your awakening.
It is a process that is shines in the rays of Love and Truth. But it is also with its share of dark and stormy weather, which does not make for smooth sailing.
Trust in your personal authority, your inner royalty and stay in alignment with the power of your Higher Self.
In this year of the Tiger, call on this big cat to shed light on the darkness so that you can see effectively in the dark like a cat does. This is a powerful trait to adopt, as mystery is a hallmark of the Universe, especially in the early days of this New Aquarian Age.
Having a spiritual outlook on life and a regular mediation practice is critical and will help support you along your way.
Take care of yourselves everyone,
MLK Meditation On Buddhist Psychology & The State of Current Affairs to Remember
By grasping onto any pleasant feeling tones,
and trying to make them stick around,
our disappointments, and resentments will surely follow.
Like when a formerly positive vibe was once experienced as an old friend or relationship
that has sadly turned into a dark edge that was misled down a black hole.
Sometimes, we forget that we are all rivers of passing emotions
instead of icebergs of unchanging feelings.
That is where monolithic rocks of rigidity remain.
We may climb those rugged mountains, but if we cling to them,
then they will become the dirge of our identities.
Perhaps the gentleness of a deer will guide us into
an intrinsic adventure in mindfulness that is worth self exploration.
Beware that following the yellow brick road is not a
destined cure for unwanted feelings, emotions or everyday pain!
The journey in healing is a process of alchemy
rather than a coveted destination.
When we are watching the unfolding situational screenplay of life,
we can see that our different strokes are not all good times
because the facts of life and family ties
are really just everyday moments at the office
that aren’t always easy to make friends with.
It can be especially hard to say cheers to the unpleasant or neutral feeling tones.
With all the distractions of the world of 10 thousand things,
it is hard not to cling to the wanting of
attention seeking, an escape or being entertained.
Sometimes, boredom is viewed as an enemy,
as is the fear of missing out (FOMO).
Has this pandemic revealed your fomophobia?
Rather, being awake is merely a process for dreaming a new dream,
and sitting with what is.
In this realm, we are allowing for fluidity, mutability,
and an open passivity with the changing seasons of life.
Remember that without the cold, dark days of winter,
there would be no sunshine and rainbows.
Or without the disappearance of a warm summer breeze,
there would be no colorful foliage to peep at.
You can’t have death without rebirth
or get to the light without venturing through the dark.
Having an appreciation for the widespread panic of
sarcasm, sardonic humor, or grumpy complaining
is different from justifying their sharper edges,
or condoning mood driven attachments to their energies,
and becoming identified with them.
Like any attachments, our judgments can become security blankets,
that manifest into memes of our own projections,
as well as other forms of suffering.
In the spirit of that . . .
When we reflect on the solidaridy and soul power of MLK Day,
may we be inspired to raise our fists, acknowledge the reality of our own fears,
and step into them with a compassionate activism of empathic courage.
Till we tweet again peeps,
A Strawberry Full Moon, and a Powerful Eclipse Season
When I think of June,
I reflect on the energies of Butterfly,
and the powerful transformation they symbolize.
A Full Strawberry Moon arrives on Friday, June 5th.
It is also a Lunar Eclipse, marking the beginning of an
atypical three eclipses during an astrological eclipse season.
A Solar Eclipse adds heat to the normally rising intensities of
peak sunlight light during Summer Solstice on June 20th,
while the Winter Solstice comes about in the Southern hemisphere.
As such, it will be the longest day of light or night,
depending on where you are on Planet Earth.
The day after that, a New Moon reflects new beginnings of a new season.
And then the last Lunar Eclipse arrives on July 4,
Independence Day in the United States, followed by
a Full Buck Moon on July 5th.
Remember that Deer is symbollic of gentle allurment
into new adventures in consciousness.
Everything is changing so rapidly in the Universe today.
It is more important than ever to be gentle, and kind
on ourselves, and with our one human family.
But that can be challenging when examining institutionalized oppression,
like awakening to the reality of white privilege, white supremacy,
and resentments that run deep from those power imbalances.
What is underneath the protests, and rioting going on right now?
The truth is, nobody wins from abuses of power,
not even those on top of the pyramid.
A system that is set up to divide, and conquer winners versus losers
is unjust, and immoral – regardless of what line in the sand you stand.
Notice how the growing cost of these disparities invite more chaos
to level the playing field.
And then watch how chaos fuels increased security controls,
like the militarization of the police as people take to the streets.
But now more than ever, with the virus affecting our planet, and
the down-bound economic train affecting the human plight –
It appears more self-evident to me that the movement of labor pains are
intensifying as an old world dies, and a new one is being born.
We have been discussing this theme for many years now in this blog.
This is analgous to the way many people choose to have another child,
after their first experience with childbirth –
often do so because they often forget how painful giving birth is,
and how much work the labor of love is during the early stages of child rearing.
Some people say that about forgetting the reason we might choose
to incarnate as a soul on the Earth, or make the agreement to become mortal.
The miracle of childbirth is akin to any rebirth,
as well as the birth of a New Earth.
And within the blessing of these miracles,
there are also courses in curses.
Going back to the familiarity of an old world,
and an old paradigm is akin to the better the devil you know mentality.
Back when Lincoln was President, a lot of people didn’t want
to end slavery or deal with the consequences of systemic change.
Same thing with the 60s, when old roles, and ways of doing
things were changing, as is always the case during
cultural wars, like we are in right now.
There are those who say they just want things to go back to normal.
And yet, the normal we all knew was really a nightmare that was
merely the better devil otherwise known as a security blanket in consciousness.
Some people call the Age of Aquarias a great awakening of
our superhuman powers, a new human, or Homo Luminosity.
When we focus on the positive, and look for the silver lining, it doesn’t
mean that we don’t notice the dark, and stormy.
That would be like an ostrich burying its head in the sand,
or a toddler plugging its ears, and making noise to tune out
the unwanted perceptual experience.
What it does mean is that we can focus on our breath or a mantra to
help us be in the present moment, and realize that we can’t control
everything that happens to us.
Instead of paying attention to the 10,000 things that are waiting to
distract us from the truth of who we really are, we are training our selves
to pay purposeful attention to waking up to self-actualization, or our soul purpose.
But, to a much larger degree, we can control how we respond or
react to what comes our way.
Yeah, it does take work to adjust to the changes that accompany
movement from a grub to a caterpillar to a butterfly.
It is unrealistic to spiritually bypass one form over the other.
Before you can fly in the heavens,
you have to learn how to move along on the ground.
May we recognize the butterfly effect of our actions.
What are you building in the shadow areas?
What will they look like if they were to come out into the sunlight?
Through the polorizing rise in nationalism, and globalism, we can relax this
barrier by stepping into a unified field of awareness.
Just imagine the possibilities of sustainable green energy jobs, access to
energetically clean resources, like quality education, health care, meaningful
work for our human family, and all sentient beings.
Many people were very skeptical when the New Deal came about during
The Great Depression era in the United States.
But when the private sector dried up, and people were without jobs, there was no
more hiding behind the veil of band-aids, and skeleton life support systems.
Humanity does have a tendency to be at our best, when we are at our worst.
And humans do have a strong survival instinct, and are socially driven creatures.
We are creatively cognitive creatures craving meaning with deep feelings.
You can try to quell those with a garden variety of distractions.
But at the end of the day, it would be like
trying to convince a grub to not turn into a caterpillar,
or trying to con a caterpillar not to transform into a butterfly.
See you further along the trails,
Please feel free to check out my recent you tube video with my coworker friend Nick Bucci, and featured guest Paul Knoll:
The Howlin’ Wolf Full Moon, and the Chinese New Year of the Rat
A Full Wolf Moon blows in the cold winds on January 10th.
The distractions of the holidays have passed, and the
Sun driven Gregorian New Year eclipses us.
And now many are feeling depressed, as the void of coming down
into the wake of winter’s slumber is setting in.
These feelings are natural, even if demonized, and
feared in our glamorized world of being up all the time.
But we can look forward to a New Moon on the 24th, that is followed closely by
the arrival of the Chinese-Lunar Year of the Rat on the day after that.
Meditate on the tracks of Wolf government . . .
Wolves embody a delicate balance of hierarchy, and democratic principles.
Be mindful of the shrewd inspiration of rats to remember
our intellect to reflect, and evaluate on our current human plight.
Legend has it that even the Buddha was impressed when
Rat was the first one to come learn when he
invited all the animals to his teachings.
You don’t have to look very far to see
the climate of changing tides on the Planet today.
There are many things to grieve about the suffering
we see among our human brothers and sisters.
Yeah, it might be hard not to get seduced by the
enemies of hate spreading like agent orange across
the sands of time.
Watch the dinosaurs of the old paradigm fight tooth and nail
to protect a dog eat dog conditioned mentality that is oppressive.
Remember that those people are suffering the most are afraid
that their power is slipping away by believing that they
don’t have a place in a New Earth.
But everything about that kind of thinking
are merely examples of erroneous zones.
Even if you don’t understand what polarity consciousness,
or diversity in unity means, you probably already realize that
people are more divided nowadays more than yesterdays.
That’s why we souls have come here at this time,
because we must heal the illusion of our perceived separation.
But then again, every soul’s waking up process happens in
its own way, as does their personal transformational process.
As long as I have been on the planet, I have seen this
more pronounced now more than ever.
This is part of our awakening, spiritually speaking.
I was born right around the time that Richard Nixon resigned –
probably right before he would have been impeached.
People forget that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
left his comfort zone of black churches.
He did that with great courage by venturing out into the unknown
to protest the Viet Nam War, and social injustices by crossing over into
the the dominant White, Middle-Class America, and the world at large.
Civil Rights is about asserting the right for everyone to
have equal access to resources. It is about asserting
that we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
Now we have a Billionaire Class gangster at large in the White House.
But he is just part of the Old Testament Goliath
that represents a dying old world.
The vanity fair of the ego should be our servant
but not our master.
A tao centered way of an Aquarian New Age is on its way,
but we are in the labor pains right now.
It is a similar feeling to when you experience loss
when someone you love dies, moves out of your life,
you go through a death of your old self, your child leaves
for college, you go through a break-up, a divorce,
or leave a job, along with coworkers you see everyday, etc.
Perhaps the gender identity, or your sexuality has
changed, and you now view that part of you as dead,
and a new part of you as born.
Out of the great void, arises a new light, and energies
that come alive inside of you when you
let them flow through your Being.
But around here, part of playing the blame game,
and being a blamenator, is to take things personally.
In this sphere, we see criticisms as personal attacks,
and then become defensive.
I know this because I have been good at those things during my lifetime.
In fact, I have been gifted at it.
At some point, you have to get sick of being sick, and realize
that by softening your will, and by surrendering to the
will of the Universe, you aren’t losing or selling out.
If you can access faith and trust, it will shed light
in the tunnel of darkness – however dimly lit.
By not drawing your sword, and going to war with another person,
you are actually getting in touch with yourself on a deeper level.
Remember that the definition of insanity is to keep doing
the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.
And here we are with our weapons of mass destruction, wars, cyberbullying,
and deleting each other because we fear our apparent differences.
We have to stop attracting this kind of energy if we are
going to stop creating it.
We can have our philosophical disagreements, and work
them out through peaceful, and non-violent means.
If you want make a difference, like Ghandi said,
you have to become the change you want to see in the world.
Instead of being seduced by your anger, hate, fears, etc.,
listen to your internal informers, and be curious about why
you are really feeling that way.
Respect isn’t an entitlement.
It may be earned, but it should be given no matter what.
Might as well make respect a daily habit.
Do you remember the Golden Rule?
Heaven and hell are inner states of consciousness.
You always have a choice about which gate you go through.
You can heed the call of your lower self (demons), and make
the transition into your Higher Self (better angels).
It isn’t about walking around with a yoke around your neck,
or following the dictates of what society says you should.
You’ll know when your head and heart are in alignment when
you do the right thing just because it’s the
right thing to do out of your own goodness.
It doesn’t matter who agrees with you, or who is on your side.
Just try to see souls over roles when you co-mingle with our human family.
Till we tweet again peeps,
November Rain & A Full Beaver Moon
November has arrived, and days are becoming darker
in the Northern hemisphere.
We are moving closer to the Winter Solstice,
our darkest day of the year.
But following that, we begin coaxing back the light.
When the shades of Mercury in Retrograde are drawn,
it can fog the left brain, and leave you feeling cloudy.
Here in Maine, November is traditionally the gloomiest month of the year.
Given the thinning veils between spirit and material realms,
and the end of daylight savings time, there are many natural feelings
associated with the dark energies around death, dying, and darkness in general.
Of course, we have been taught to fear the dark in our modern world.
In fact, religions have demonized the dark –
even at times enslaved, and burned people at the stake out of fear.
Just look at how we glorify our attachments to our bodies,
and fear the extinction of them.
But our souls, like the yin and the yang have both sunlight and dark nights.
Every soul has masculine and feminine energies living within it.
You do not have to be seduced by your fears or your dark side.
If you are, then you will become consumed by them,
and attract more of the same.
The opposite is true if you focus on the positive,
and look for the silver lining.
The key dynamic to embrace your oneness with everything,
and celebrate the diversity that makes you unique.
How do you see yourself right now?
Do you see yourselves as separate from others?
Are you becoming the change you want to see in the world?
In my experience, Winter has been a hard time for me,
as the date of January 25, marks the tragic date of my mom’s
death by suicide many moons ago – 25 years to be exact.
Sadly, it is getting harder for people to live on the planet,
and more people are ending their lives.
I feel their pain, and I get their plight, as most empaths do.
The trick is not to cut yourself off from the gift to feel, nor
take the pains of others personally, and also to know discernment with
relation to boundaries.
But according to the Chinese Lunar New Year,
January 25 signals the Year of the Rat.
The social science geek in me appreciates the connection between Rat, and
rat psychology – a derivative of behaviorism, a form of the
science of psychology.
We have been conditioned to buy into a material world that
peddles a dangerous game of rewards and punishments.
Many people that don’t fit into that paradigm,
feel left out, lost and alone.
But the spiritual power of Rat invites meditation onto another possibility.
Do you remember the story about when the Buddha welcomed
the arrival of all the animals to his teachings,
and the first one of 12 to show up was the rat?
At the precipice of a New Age and Paradigm,
the time is now to redefine our idea of success.
We need to become more shrewd in our doings, and awaken strategies to
more effectively tame our nervous woodland creature energy.
Mindfulness is a way out of our suffering that allows us to breathe
in the power of now as it awakens in the present moment.
Meditation trains us to leave the depression of the
past alone, and calm the anxiety of the future.
It is not a cure, but it is a skill that can be developed,
and improve with practice.
The Beaver Full Moon rises in the skies on November 12.
Given their industry, and creative exit strategies,
the energies of Beaver can help you spring the traps in your consciousness.
Remember that consciousness is behind everything,
even the most advanced human brains,
and other intelligences at play.
So you might as well forget about outwitting Nature, or getting caught up
in the manipulations of the egoic mind’s behavioral traps.
The Universe is not out to get you, nor is it an enemy that needs to
be beaten up, subjugated or killed.
At the end of the day, we all need to build new neurons, neighborhoods,
and make friends with our own inner space.
When we do that, alternative energy is cultivated in a way
that is based on the Universal pillars of Love and Truth.

Cardinal Whistles Wind Chimes of Virtuosity
Cardinal appears in our world today
As Father Sun just revealed a peak light experience
on a waning Summer Solstice
A Full Buck Moon runs through the sky trails ahead
Do you need a strong moral compass or a
yoke tattooed around your neck to be true to yourself?
Yang heats up his fires during the summer months
It is a time for outer growth and an action-oriented lifestyle
And yet, we are heading downhill now until light and dark
are equal again on Fall Equinox in September . . .
Can you sense seismic shifts of
Climate Change across the fruited plain?
As the world turns, may we remember the softness of
yin’s hands calm the nerves of anxiety ridden war mongering
May meditation on Cardinal’s whistles blow in the winds of change
that resonate with crystalline clarity in Mother Earth’s heart beat

Swan Swims Gracefully into New Age Waters
Imagine the old story of the ugly duckling growing into a beautiful Swan
inspires humanity to undergo a similar transformation in consciousness
Perhaps it looks like an unlikely story, but then again
these are the days of wonders and miracles
A Full Flower Moon rises in the skies this week
It is also called a Wesak Full Moon
when Buddha’s light was born into our world
A flowering spiritual awakening is everywhere
But where there is light, there is also dark
There are many growing dangers out there
Keep in mind it is easier to judge and hate
than to love each other and find common ground
Fear spreads like wildfire . . .
and you always fear what you don’t understand
So doesn’t it make sense to be curious and empathic
in how we approach our differences?
Remember that where there is yin, there is yang
masculine energy lights the path toward yin’s darkness
Next time you find yourself sizing yourself up to someone else –
making a comparison about why your position is right,
and someone else’s is wrong
Or just putting yourself up on a pedestal by demonizing someone else
based on your belief that your way of living is preferred
and therefore should have dominion of another
Take a deep breath, and a break from that mind-set,
whilst just considering the opposite viewpoint for a moment . . .
Allow yourself to see the opposite side of the same coin
from both your head and your heart
This is how we move beyond us and them segregation,
transition into we consciousness, and brings balance to our Earth

Colorful Vision Rises with Turkey Vulture
Turkey Vulture flies in the skies this week,
in concert with a blossoming Full Pink Moon on Friday . . .
Spring is here in the Northern Hemisphere
and a colorful world is blossoming before our eyes
Psychically hang glide with Mother Earth’s thermals with minimal effort . . .
This signals an opportune time for a general
Spring Cleaning through the Moon’s last quarter
Purification, death-rebirth, new vision and connections to a
marital relationship with Heaven and Earth is awakening
Take in a living breath of oneness . . .
Exhale the dead air of segregationist thinking
Outward expansion of Yang’s expressiveness
Gives rise to powerful intuitive feminine song bird vocals
The resourceful ways of Turkey Vultures reflects
renewable energy and a natural conservation of our environment
May the political and business interests reflect the wisdom of Turkey Vulture!
Their medicine of disease prevention is best practice
Meditate on levitating above the physical laws of the material realm
So that we can release old ways that no longer serve
Walk in alignment with your own roots sinking into Mother Earth
Let any negative energies flow down into Her for renewable compost
Connect with ancestors whom have passed on . . .
May their spirits guide us into a unified playing field
reflecting a Heaven and Earth connection that we can see
with individual and collective eyes
A flooding of emotional memories from when they were living comes on like waves
Picture surfing them to gain a deeper appreciation for the living moment

Cheerful Expressions of New Spring Songs with Chickadee
Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors . . .
They are effective spirit guides to have during
the waning intensities of last week’s Full Moon
and offer a more cheerful passage through a passing Spring Eclipse Season
When crows and vultures descend . . .
These tiny birds stand undaunted in their own personal power
Chickadees are small in physical stature
But they are symbolic of our own boundless power of spirit
We all should have the right to express our voice without oppression . . .
Learned helplessness is harder to internalize in a more
socially just and fair global community
We are spiritual beings having human experiences
More of us are waking up to this reality
and there is power in our growing numbers and flowering consciousness . . .
Chickadees sing cheerful songs of Truth . . .
May their energy elevate a personal resurrection burning brighter light in our souls
through passionate expression of Christ Consciousness within and without
Their black caps symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking . . .
We are a diversified and unified portfolio here on Earth
Let us welcome abundance to the possibility of equal access to resources
Divergent expressions of Great Spirit is who we really are
Remember the conflict of duality is healed through
the lens of our upper chakras
When we look through a lens of equality
We honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity
Donald Trump is a reflection of a dirty rear view mirror
that our lower chakras reveal to us as informants
Don’t buy into marketed commercial that sells
the jingle that projects a white privileged-centric
“we’re going make America great again”
That’s just code for demonizing Muslims, Arabs, Immigrants, the poor, oppressed
and other outsiders that don’t fit the mold of the opulent minority
This Aquarian land was made for you and me!
On the surface, energies are intensifying . . .
Suicide bombs have gone off and innocent people are dying
There is tragedy in the air!
Time for the Billionaire class to pay their fair share
Instead of greedily concentrating more wealth
to those that already have more than enough
But on a deeper level, we are moving into blossoming new beginnings . . .
Nature is leveling the playing field
Violence is waking us up
Bernie Sanders is part of a movement in alignment with a
forthcoming Aquarian Age
Contrary to what the corporate media wants you to believe,
he is an electable candidate . . .
We can stop the violence of voting for the lesser of two evils
and against our own best interests . . .
Remember that change, like the seasons is a process . . .
It is more about an unfolding transition than a fixed time and space
May Chickadee elevate our spirits to rise above and get off the couch
Let us free ourselves from the mental slavery of business as usual politics
The time is now for new economies built on a foundations of authenticity and trust
Clean love and clean care is renewable energy for all to share
Please envision with me as smooth of a transition as possible into new times . . .
