It can be challenging to speak your own truth and let go of it . . .

Maybe you hold a more politically liberal way of looking at the world,
but someone close to you tends to have a more conservative viewpoint

Some people are concrete thinkers and tend to embody rigidity,
while others tend to have minds more like parachutes

Without one, there’s no anchor
Without the other, there’s no setting sail

How do you make friends with these tension of opposites?

It’s when we get identified with our positions where we get into trouble . . .
Otherwise, we sometimes have to agree to disagree

Besides, if you feel charged to convince someone else to buy into your position,
then it might be a good idea to reflect on what’s behind that impulse

The seductive pacifier of fascist kind of thinking, is that it
promises the illusion that a fixed idea can become a savior

But there’s nothing more devilish than an immoveable mountain of fixed mind

Do we build up walls with regards to personal and geopolitical boundaries?
Or do we relax barriers, and become more open and fluid?

Given the rising intensities of Summer’s astrological eclipse season,
wrestling with these tension of opposites are becoming more intense

But shaking up our comfort zones, and habituated mind
are healthy ingredients for making forward progress in spirit and on ground

Maybe you can appreciate going with the flow –
But do you really want to push the river to unleash the secret of your success?

There is such a proliferation of programmed habituated thought forms making it
damn near impossible to opt out of worshiping the opinions of others!

It is healthy to be mindful of and sensitive to their frequencies . . .

But not at the expense of thwarting you into
relaxing into your own evolving vibration!

Self doubt is powerful bait of a status quo version of yourself –
perhaps you’ve been hooked by the lure of the better the devil you know

Be mindful of those stories that peddle the kind of personal beliefs
that sells you packages of your own fears!

On this time of Summer Solstice . . .

Let the rays of Grandfather Sun shine His divine light
onto your soul, illuminating the silhouette of your higher self!

Imagine yourself in the sunlight of possibilities of yourself
that you might not otherwise have envisioned

Drink in the fruits of the forthcoming Full Strawberry Full Moon to help you
see clearly that you have the fire of the sun in your being . . .

Use this beacon of light to torch your motivation to rise up to the Higher Self
that you are becoming the change you want to see in the world!

Till the next trailhead,

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,

Whale brings good tidings that we have come
to this planet to fulfill our soul’s purpose

People who are mathematically attentive
celebrate “pie day” on March 14th

I see this math symbol as a sign of infinity
and a spiritual birthday gift that keeps on giving

With a new moon coming, and a New Age on its way
we are in the letting go process of an old mechanistic world order

It’s hard not to get seduced into “turning the blinders on” from your
deeper and higher values . . .

But with daylight savings time, the light is rising
while darkness is waning

And then somewhere during that process, you might find yourself
becoming a robot, hitting the mute button,
and parroting a “business as usual” price tag of selling your soul

But the time is now to “get up, stand up”
speak your truth, and “fight for your right.”

Time to man up, dawg!

But with Whale as your spirit guide, you can always come back
to empathy, and swim in the wake of a new sea of consciousness
to the heartbeat of universal energetic equality

Spring Equinox is a good natural reminder of that
A time when masculine and feminine energies will be in equal alignment again

And from that point, the light will be rising till it peaks
on the Summer Solstice in June

Moving into the New Aquarian Age waters means that we should
focus on swimming in pods of like-minded coming attractions

Focusing on those that hide in the dark of an old dog eat dog
herd mentality are not worth you giving your power away to

Those attached to ways of the hellish nightmare
are just going to pull you down, rather than look for a leg up

Your primary focus and responsibility is to take charge of your own
spiritual development as an expanding soul having a human experience

Like the transition between Winter to Spring,
we are in transitional tides that are ebbing and flowing
between ages, and the sands of time

May we swim in these changing tides together
into the new seas of this school called Earth

Till we meet again up the trail,

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,

Sunlight is dimming now . . .

Darker days, and current events on our planet today
want to seduce us into getting boxed into downward doomsday
mindsets that fade spirits into dark edges

Shadowy geopolitical turmoil cloud
the light at the end of the tunnel

Sometimes, the ghosts of yesteryear resurrect their haunting
Try to look upon past relationship dysfunctions with clear eyes
so that you can see from a new vantage point

Like a dying relationship, the death of the leaves
breathes in the possibility of new life . . .

Meditate on the new beginnings of a new moon

Train yourself to climb the dunes one step, one breath,
and one moment along the sands of time . . .

All we have is right now . . .
You can choose dive into the depths of your soul’s waters

Close your physical eyes for a moment, and open your spiritual eye to
see yourself opening up to abundance . . .

Say, “I am calm, I am relaxed, I am Divine Nature!”

Like our spiritual ancestors before . . .

Picture a turkey to ward off the negative energies that
want to sap your energy field . . .

When each one of us is awakening to the light of inner peace,
we are simultaneously becoming the change we want to see in the world

Just as Hell is a state of consciousness,
so too is the Heaven of a New Earth

Walk into your Divine Nature to witness the revelation
of a new dimension, while experiencing a vibrational shift . . .

See you along the trails,

Ari

Cat’s are reminders of adolescence . . .
Their presence is curious, and can be difficult to anticipate

They are difficult to outwit, and nearly impossible to herd!

Creative feminine yin pounces mysterious
energetic wave pulsations, not without more natural disasters

And things heating up on the planet in general!
But in these dark times, we might as well awaken Cat’s capacity
to see well when the lights are out

Many people are feeling like things are spinning out of control

More storms are brewing as we move deeper into Climate Change . . .
These are the days of the New Normal

People who lived in the 60s and didn’t miss it,
understand that today is like then on steroids . . .

Cats show us how to be both relaxed,
yet alert and oriented at the same time

The old world can remind us to suck it up,
especially when faced with great obstacles

Everybody do this by loving yourself,
and others as much as possible . . .

Picture becoming like the power of water . . .
A gentle, and soft dead calm of a deep ocean

See and hear this mantra cradling your soul in
the form of a safe womb-like setting

A Full Harvest Moon yield’s its crop on October 5th

Become aligned with Nature, and reap Her bountiful blessings
Rather than resisting the apparent curses of Her changing seasons

Till the next trail head,

Ari
