Dragonfly lands onto soulful inner space landing pads this week
Like us, they come from primordial creative waters

The energy of Dragonfly breathes the fires of color magic
onto paintings of our everyday living portraits . . .

A Full Sturgeon Moon swims into the seas of a Lunar Eclipse
arriving down the pike at the tail end of the first week in August . . .

The rising tide of the Age of Aquarius, and astrological eclipses in August
is streaming in Love and Truth into our collective consciousness . . .

But old world blockages fortify the status quo of old ways
Even if they are no longer working for us anymore,
and suffocating on life supports systems . . .

Bowing to the devil you know doesn’t mean you ignore your better angels
Stay away from fear and hatred, and closer to relaxing on rigidity . . .

Equality is awakening our individualistic diversity within our holistic unity!

This is easier to forget when watching the military-industrial complex,
and their carpet bagging bringing of dark emotions,
like fascist thinking out into the sunlight

Those old commercials try to convince us that we in the
United States are entitled to sit on a golden throne,

At the same time, we are sold on the idea that those living certain
profiled neighborhoods overseas are of lesser value . . .

But we see the same dynamic play out right here on our own turf
in areas populated by targeted demographics that include the poor and oppressed

Remember to keep it light with Dragonfly as a spiritual ally!

Till we meet again on the field,

Dragonfly breathes magic and color
Into the ordinary doings of everyday life

A long time ago . . .
Dragon had the King Midas touch of always going straight for the gold
But a wise guy called Coyote tricked Dragon by feeding him a slice of humble pie

Do you need a change in habit?

What good are your lucky charms
If you get consumed by your own facade?

Let go of the shores and surrender to Life’s oceanic bounty

Are you holding yourself back with beliefs that no longer serve you?

Lighten up by picturing a dragonfly orbiting
within your infinite inner space . . .

Ask for directional guidance to see through illusionary smokescreens –
Illuminating transformational pathways

Have you followed through with your action plan to make a change?

See you further on up the trails,

Imagine observing a great conversational exchange of
Great Spirit asserting to Dragonfly . . .
“Nothing is as it seems . . . nor is it the opposite.”

Do you ever get the feeling our dreams are more lucid than our waking reality?

Colorful rays of light help us breathe in fiery magical energy –
into mundane moments of ordinary life.

Remember when wise Coyote fooled
Dragon out of his illusionary King Midas Touch . . .
by tricking him into being entrapped
by his own charming spell and losing his power?

When tornadoes arrive, it is a good exercise
in letting go and allowing your soul to ride out the storm front.

When you’re lost and alone . . . that’s when the rainbow comes.

Dragonfly now communicates enlightening elemental wisdom –
dazzling us with aerial feats inspired by spirited winds of change . . .
Brought to you by right Tao in a commercially free Nature channel zone.

Given experiences with massive climate changes – how do we make friends with
intergalactic and/or multidimensional relationships?
Will we gracefully expedite our maturation process effectively?
Beyond the security of and propagation by the Empire –
May Universal pillars of Love and Truth light our way!

When the fat lady sings and the trumpet sounds its call
Out of the ashes of the burning city we love . . .
Rises a Phoenix – becoming a new beacon of light.

Picture a dragonfly as a free-spirited vessel orbiting
within your infinite inner space . . .
Ask for directional guidance to see through illusionary smokescreens –
lighting the way toward new transformational pathways.

Is your weight in balance? Are you holding yourself back with beliefs that no longer serve you? Do you need a change in habit? Have you followed through with your action plan to make a change?

No need to prove your power to others . . . merely trust in becoming it.

Let us remember our ancestral earthbound connections . . .
From dust to dust, ashes to ashes.

May we remember our roots with our free-spirited
Nature mothers, brothers and sisters in the trees, shrubs and gardens.

Dig in and imagine energy sinking three feet or more
into the ground emptying through the soles of your feet.

With a New Moon on Wednesday . . .
pay intentional attention to portals for new beginnings.
Create, develop, cultivate and manifest co-creations with Mother Earth.

In humanities colorful foliage, we are all earthlings –
We all have a vested interest in connecting to Her heartbeat.
She is a living being that is our womb of life.
Hug a tree and even plant one if you feel so moved.
Antennas to the cosmos are they.

See you further on down the trails,

While buzzing with Bee during last week’s encounter, we remembered to drink in Life’s sweetness and get organized in our inner and outer worlds with industry. This week, we take flight with Dragonfly in our travels. Mythical legend tells us that Dragon was once a wise and masterful illusionist. However, Dragon was tricked by Coyote to prove his power by turning himself into a Dragonfly. In getting caught up in his own facade and falling for Coyote’s prank, Dragon lost his power. Alas, with great power comes great responsibility.

If only our global community would embrace this powerful wisdom by integrating Dragonfly’s free-spirited teachings into our daily Life. Less emphasis on military might and more investment in co-facilitating the democratic process will probably decrease the desire for military coups and give peace more than a chance. With Dragonfly as our spirited guides, we lighten-up our internal navigation systems. Consuming the energy of Dragonfly helps us add color to our world of form, but without blowing things out of proportion or being too over the top with our magical theatrics. Dragonflies perform aerial feats akin to UFO’s that leave us feeling dazzled. Why not take flight and hover with Dragonfly when your spirits need a lift?

When incorporating transparency and “fairness, honesty and integrity” in our day-to-day operations, would we not see decreases in gun violence, a more active civic involvement in voting, more equitable immigration laws, a clearer and cleaner energy policy toward effectively adapting to Climate change? How much NSA wiretapping and other surveillance policies would we need if Leadership were following the rules that they set for us to follow? Surely building equal access to health care, including the Chiropractic Care Available to All Veterans Act, would perhaps reduce deficit headaches and backbreaking workman’s compensation claims to employers. Isn’t sowing the seeds of love, rather than the proliferation of pesticides in our soil, a breath of fresh air? Rather than rolling back the Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, doesn’t it make sense to water those seeds with love as well? When humanity purifies our collective intention, “we will hold these truths to be self-evident”–without bugging ourselves or being too bugged by bugs, super-sized or otherwise.

“Dragonfly . . . Breaks illusions, Brings visions of power, No need to prove it, Now is the hour! Know it, Believe it, Great Spirit intercedes, feeding you, blessing you, filling your needs.” Dragonfly medicine reminds humanity to stay cool by learning to effectively swim in the deep waters of emotional life, play outside and spend time by fresh water. Change, transformation, mythical connections to Nature Spirits, weaving through illusions and creative imagination are all aspects of Dragonfly’s teachings. Shedding light into this realm allows us to perceive through shadow realms. We live in a colorful world and we are all rainbow children. Culturally, we are a salad bowl. Mindful consumption and mystical digestion is good food for our souls to marinate on.

I remember when a brotherly teammate once reminded me of my own oscillations between order and chaos.  Back in High School, we played sports together–riding the wave of a 12 year losing streak on the football field, but exchanging a textbook handoff and going undefeated for some years in track.  While some of us embrace our power, many of us fear it and subsequently choose to slay our internal dragon.  Sometimes, we do this by trying control everything in our lives, such as over indulging in work and practical matters.  Here on Channel Tao, I remember the power in staying light on the feet and adding color and magic to life, when watching dragonflies flitting about o’er grassy ball fields.  In fact, their aerial feats are somewhat akin to UFO and USO sightings that have dazzled scientists and the general public alike.  As I sit here submerged in my consciousness, I cool my own dragon fire when noticing our very own secret government’s role in liberally funneling taxpayer monies into the Pentagon, while cloaked under the auspices of “foreign technology” and “research and development”.  Why is it that senators and congressmen ignore the call to allow the government to “meddle” in our lives by providing single-payer healthcare to “promote the general welfare” of our citizenry?  What makes it the epitome of public enemy to ask for a more equitable structure, where the top dawg 1% pays their fair share and our taxes are more evenly distributed?  Isn’t it homeland security to level the playing field?  But if there is a bailout on Wall Street and/or a war to fuel, then the bailouts are arranged without Federal Reserve!

Long ago, legend teaches us that dragon, in his great power, was once wise and a master illusionist.  But he was tricked by coyote to prove his power by turning himself into a dragonfly.  Somewhat akin to a black sorcerer, or a gifted propagandist, dragon got caught up in his own facade by falling for coyote’s prank and subsequently lost his power.  I wonder if Bob Dylan channeled this story from the heavens when he transcribed and sang the lyrics, “the first one now will later be last”?  The truth is that we are all one.  When we step into the realm of Infinity, abundance awaits for everyone and we can all win.  Money is energy and merely depends on the value we attach to it.  And Great Spirit reminds us that it is wise to let go of our attachments.  Further, as spiritual beings having a human experiences, we are always going to flirt with our attachments because our Source is housed in a human shell with the desire to want more.  But do we allow ourselves to remember gratitude by staying calm in the pocket and cutting back to inner peace like Tom Brady and Barry Sanders, respectively?  When getting distracted from holographic messages from an iBot, negative thoughts, emotions, parenting and work to do and bills to pay–is it possible to remember that we are both part Divine and part creature, rather than getting lost in the robotic doings in this “world of 10,000” things?  As we transition into a Golden New Aquarian Age and Paradigm, the demonic shackles of ego will need to rest in peace, while our awareness rises in the spirit of celebrating the good times of Diversity in Unity in our Collective Consciousness.  Please use the energies of the Lunar Full Moon Eclipse on Monday, June 4 and the approaching Summer Solstice on June 19, 2012 to guide you in transforming your consciousness to take flight.  While there is truth in the saying that men are like the Sun and women are like the Moon, the reality is that we all have masculine and feminine energy oscillating within our Being.  Moreover, we need to remember that there exists a Divine Marriage between this Yin-Yang dance and that balance is key.  Energetically, this is a good time of year to manifest and transform our consciousness in our lives and say good-bye to devilish, fixed ideas that box us in. 

Readers, have you ever heard of the old saying, “you are what you eat?”  In the spirit of that, I like to embark on a cleanse every now and again, typically around the quarterly equinoxes and solstices here on Classroom Mothership Earth.  Given my experience, I wanted to share with you a four-day cleanse that I caught wind of by the great Seneca Tribe here in North America some years ago.  Each day is believed to clear different areas in the body.  The first day cleans out the colon.  On the second day, toxins, excess salts and calcium deposits are released.  On day three, mineral-rich fiber flows through your digestive track.  Finally, the blood, lymphatic system and other organs are nourished with minerals.  Remember to drink plenty of water every day, but accompany that with fruit only on day one, herbal teas only on day two, veggies only on day three and broth only on the final day.  This cleanse offers our human shell a meditation 101 opportunity to watch without judgement the thoughts and feelings that arrive in our consciousness and then let them gently pass with care.  Although this may seem daunting, I find this experience good for the souls personal empowerment.  On the personal weather front, have you put on too much weight or do you look like a scarecrow?  Have you tended to the changes you have wanted to make in your life?  Are you resisting change when it would be wise to do otherwise?  Do you remember wisdom in what we resist, persists?  As we become the change we want to see in the world, please remember that we are what we eat!   

Stay True,

Ari
