Robins remind us that Spring is in the air –
Meditate on the perspective of an early bird getting the worm . . .

Early days of Spring are budding ahead . . .
Movement into light energies are rising!

Red Robin’s breasts symbolize masculinity –
Red brightens spirits like a hot ray of sunlight!

Energetically, a new zodiacal year is reborn . . .
A new season turns the heat up into a budding New Aquarian Age

But retrograde in the cosmos summon ghosts of yesteryear
Time to heal comfortably numb catacombs,
and release the possessive attachments of those old wounds

Here in American, Bernie Sanders ramps up the call for expanding Medicare
so that everyone has access to quality health care

Who’s going to pay for that?

The same folks funneling billions of dollars to the mega rich,
so that the rest of us are kept from having equal access to that rightful resource

We make work cool again when people have good jobs that pay livable wages,
and ideally have good fortune to have meaningful work . . .

When you do what you love, and love what you do,
Inner peace feels like a sublime experience worth sharing . . .

May we co-create a world with purposeful and meaningful work
that feeds our planet, and in return nourishes all of us!

See you further on up the trails,

Is it the word of the Lord?
To obey thy master . . .
Do as I say but not as I do . . .
Children should be seen but not heard.

Will the silent majority remain comfortably numb?
Slowly simmering as the words echoed by an
Imitation Christ representing a mere manifestation of deception.
Behavioral patterns behind the curtain reveal an antithesis of
His True actualized Self.

Commercial illusion of a Republic with democratic ideals –
Cloaked behind shadowy expanded imperialism
Propagating the powers that be
President Gas shuffles his feet for
combustible special interests excesses.

Perceived by the Hidden Hand as children –
Methodically indentured in blissful ignorance
Questioning the rebellious motivation of the rascal multitude
Fomenting calculated defiance and retaliation

Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt

Alternatively, some minority patriots
Dubiously challenge this manufactured illusion
Painfully perceiving now apparently
Disconnected kernels of truth
Via siphoned regurgitated rhetorical chunks of puke

Raising our fists to the drumbeat of accountability and responsibility
From Leadership’s professed gospel of Freedom.

Seeking Liberty
and Empowerment through equal access
As we ascend from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave

Power to the People

Inner Peace is as Inner Peace does

Belief in mediation for self-reflection . . .

Allowing us to sit with what is –
rather than exit with denial or aggression.

A good old boy fraternal order cleverly breathes coal into the souls of its new initiates. As such, a chaotic choir sings a nightmarish karmic hypnotic trance-like opera of reward and punishment. In this refrain, it is hard not to get boxed into tick y-tacky packages of winners and losers, heroes and villains and angels and demons.

The old ways of maximum incentive for greed blinded by arrogance is way past crossing the line. Effectively playing the fox and the lion game of when to be assertive and when to be ingratiating has taken us to the edge of a cliff. Disillusionment abounds. Mister, there is a darkness on the edge of town.

We have a system that foments talk show pundits that profit off of the ignorance of their audience. Let us take for example the same talk show host that both criticizes Obamacare that he then parrots advertisements for accessing Obamacare in commercials that handsomely pay his salary. Without skipping a beat, this charlatan manipulation pulls the wool over the public at large – particularly the educated business class to unconsciously buy into polarizing arguments of us and them. Stop the insanity.

But with an infusion of spirituality into our humanity – we understand our survival is not a game. There are no enemies. We are One. The time is now for the paradigm to change. Powerful energies are moving in this Spring. Can you feel them budding?

It is easy to take a swing at the present moment . . . rat a tat tat . . . Russian toy soldier’s in the Ukraine . . . Now that’s gangsta.

Now is the time to shake-up and move on up into a co-creative system that is designed to nurture our natural luminosity. We can live in harmony with our Mother and all her sentient beings!

Imagine a conversation between Spider, Porcupine and Turkey . . .

Spider embodies a figure 8 shape that symbolizes our infinite and creative nature. We are empowered to clear Cosmic Karma by consciously weaving our dreams into our waking experience with reality. The more willing we are to choose to see the silver lining and make positive interpretations, the more potential we have to heal ourselves and our planet. What good is gold if our consciousness is weighed down by heavy metal?

Porcupine stimulates our chi by making the point that faith and trust in Great Spirit reveals that a Divine Plan that is unfolding in our lives. Through the wonder of childlike innocence, we are discovering Life’s mystery through portals of fantasy and imagination. Can you see these chimes of freedom flashing?

Turkey chimes in by leveling the playing field by reinforcing the wisdom that in the giving, there is receiving – illustrating a message board of shared blessings. Give it back . . . Take it back. It is time to ward off the evil spirits of pessimistic cynicism.

We have a need to feed our souls with an essential spiritual, physical and intellectual diet. Are you exhausted? How is your energy level? Manic, elevated, unhappy or low? Can you sit with loneliness? Are you afraid to get to know yourself on a deeper level? Why is that?

An internal Fountain of Youth springs eternal inside of each of us. However, it is useless if we do not tap into it.

Movement into a more equitable society requires a more buoyant, equilateral triangle. The movers and shakers are in positions of power to embody leadership by investing in equal access to resources. Their collective intention has been in the extreme opposite. Enough is enough!

An empire that is only interested in sustaining itself is not sustainable. Therefore, a vested interest in all of us winning, awakens an impetus to co-create Heaven on Earth instead of depleting Her resources to extinction.

Congratulations guys . . . maturation is kicking in.

See you further 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.

See you further on down the trails,

I remember playing football with my child out in the backyard recently.  We were having great fun when I was asked me to channel the my Howard Cosell energy.  Although kids today are too young to know who he was, my child likes when I broadcast his spirit.   Somewhere during our game, we noticed a frog hopping along in our field of vision.  Our amphibian friend signaled to us that it was time to transition, clean up and head inside for a change in climate.  After working up a sweat, isn’t it nice to cool down and wash away the grime and dirt?  Meditation on Frog is good medicine for purification, detoxifying and general mind-body-spirit cleansing while traveling here on Classroom Mothership Earth. 

For those of us that like to fly high and run with the wind, we need to remember where we are on the map of consciousness, keep a sense direction and also keep our feet on the ground, while here on Earth.  Before a boundary is pushed or dissolved, we need to learn where the edges and boarders areas are and show respect for them.  It is harder to be a kid and a parent today.  All children need safe, clear and firm limits set so that they are equipped to learn how to effectively navigate through life and eventually know how to self-govern themselves in developmentally appropriate ways, as maturation kicks in accordingly.  Nudging too much or being too permissive does not teach us moderation as a way of life.  Balance is key, which is why those of us in care-taking positions that like to nurture must remember self-care and water our own internal gardens, so that burnout, compassion fatigue and resentments do not build exponentially.  Many folks struggle with balancing freedom and responsiblity, particularly in the USA, because we do not launch our children well.  It is harder to set the big limits when we don’t set the small ones.  Given that mind-body indulgences have been pushed on us in our ego-gratification dominated cultural story, we have forgotten spirit as a key ingredient to our holistic program development, if you will.   

On the global weather front, we are bullied into buying into a mantra that tells us to forget that we are spiritual beings having human experiences.  Somewhere in Middle America, 165 workers are slated to lose their jobs because Mitt Romney and his friends at Bain Capital are planning on outsourcing these jobs somewhere else for cheap labor.  In suburban Dallas, Texas, $60 million was recently spent to build a state of the art High School football stadium in suburban Dallas, Texas.  As much as I love football, the cock in me roosts, “foul ball!”  What are we too chicken to level the playing field to subsidize equal access for all players?  In fact, I heard a police officer chime in class the other day that we should put prisoners to work.  Not a bad idea, but it might bring us closer to justifying hidden slavery, than moving toward true freedom.  Moreover, why not invest an ounce of prevention and a pound of cure by co-creating a system that infuses spiritual values that supports employee empowerment, safe working conditions and paying livable wages, if not envisioning a free for service economy?  Do our friends in Congress really need to be earmarking billions and billions of dollars toward weapons of mass destruction and garrisons around the planet to control the flow of oil?  Is it not a mixed message when we are regularly informed that we do not have enough money for the homeland security programs of education and healthcare for our children, but continue to invest liberally in violence and oppression? 

Former President Calvin Coolidge once said, “the business of America is business.”  In the spirit of that, many of us learned in kindergarten that it is good business to practice to sharing and cooperating with peers.  Or was that Sunday school?  As more of us get into alignment with the natural feeling that spirit wants to authentically express itself, without being held back, we awaken to the demand that our deeper souls are welcome here on Earth.  When this cadence is heard, we will see the mainstream celebration of diverse expressions of Great Spirit, while practicing the politics of oneness on our planet and Universe throughout.

Stay True,

Ari
