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,

Paddling into the crystalline waters of the Dreamtime
with Swan’s graceful intuitive faculties –
is not always without a concerned eye of the beholder.

Making friends with uncertainty principles
dissolves synthetic illusionary trickery.

The energy of Swan is somewhat akin to a magical mystery tour
boat staying afloat in the same waters
a psychological crack-up drowns in.

Acceptance of Great Spirit’s Divine Plan
without the seduction of alteration
Yields a sweet surrender to go with the Universal flow.

Embracing our imperfections ignites the fires of humility
and illuminates the Yang mage winds of an Aquarian New Age.

A leap of faith reveals a lyrically wise assertion:
“Swan Medicine teaches us to be at one with all planes of consciousness,
and to trust in Great Spirit’s protection.”

Cultivation of the Heavenly gift of intuition
is enhanced by relaxation into gut knowledge.
Rather than persistently getting dammed up
with a foolish ship of resistance.

See you further on down the trails,

Today, we get into alignment with the Winter Solstice – the darkest day of the year. Tomorrow, we gain a little bit of light every day. In the darkness, we have an opportunity to receive the information from our lower Chakras, or a “land down under”, so to speak. Although frequently unwanted and uncomfortable to look at, we are equipped with these Chakras to help us shed light on and live in harmonic relationship with the Earth, our sexuality, base emotions, personal will and self-esteem. It is easily conveniently inconvenient to resist this information, change the channel and exit or avoid with denial or aggression. However, we have the opportunity to dig a little deeper by taking an authentic glimpse into our bodily portals of consciousness. As such, we might allow ourselves to see what information Spirit has to reveal to us in our unfolding story. In this process, we may develop acceptance and even make friends with what is. One way to do this is be part of a fire ritual in community and share what you are grateful for and what you would like to let-go of this year.

When I notice those unwanted internal news broadcasts, I remember the old Beavis and Butt-Head episodes. Do you remember watching those two character idiots watching MTV videos together – making comments like, “this sucks” and “change it”? Don’t those characters merely embody theatrical resistance to the inner space of our lower Chakras? After all, life really is like “a box of chocolates” because “you never really know what you’re gonna get.” And remembering a sense of humor is good medicine. We cannot always control, script and choreograph our life-like a reality show. Sometimes, the “best in show” is simply remembering the full-bellied laughter of the Buddha when the funeral parade comes knocking on our door. Our modern world is chock full of distractions that give us easy permission to change the channel, rather than being present on Channel Now. Being present doesn’t mean getting sucked into old dramas, mental tapes or the “voice in the head”- like feeding off an endless IV drip of sympathy. Rather, it does mean being in the moment with what is and breathing in and breathing out the living present, one step, one breath and one moment at a time. If “every thought is a judgment”, then just return to your breath and see what happens.

Many souls choose to leave the material realm this time of year. This is part of why this time of year is such a mixed bag for folks. We feel conflicted about getting into the spirit of the season, the emphasis on consumerism and pressure to buy gifts for each other that we hope will be well-received. We feel pressure to be “up”, instead of “coming down into our souls”. But we need to remember that this junction is really about gratitude and letting-go. Christ’s Light embodied the Sun that is a beacon of light that serves as shelter from the storm. His consciousness was meant to inspire us that the Kingdom of Heaven is an internal experience. When humanity evolves into this place with regularity, we see its unfolding reflected in our outer world. In this way, we become the change we want to see in the world.

Do you remember the character Holden Caufield in the classic book The Catcher in the Rye? Holden Caufield is the epitome of our dying Pisces age and represents the letting-go of our savior complex. The character can’t let-go of trying to catch lost souls jumping off the edge of the cliff, where he waits to save them from their doom. This lose-lose scenario leaves him feeling lonely so that he looks to fill his empty cup with alcohol to medicate his spirits. But we don’t need to carry the heavy burden of trying to save anybody. However, we can become an embodiment of inner peace. When we do this, our souls light up. When we don’t, our souls dim. Those of you who know material bounty and perhaps the “white picket fence”, have probably realized by now that “living the dream” of the leafy suburban lifestyle does not feed your soul alone. Meditation is a healthy spiritual diet that will nourish you soul and help you feel pleasantly full.

Sending much inner peace your way,

Ari

Dancin’ Again

I know a time . . .
I make’s no sense at all.
May weather this flood . . .
Season through reason and fall.

Fire with fire, n’ head to head . . .
Boilin’ and fumin’, our faces are red.

And here we are . . .
Dancin’ again.

You am I and I are you . . .
One up, one down, one is two.
Assumin’ n’ askin’, through n’ through
Sleepin’ n’ weepin’, n’ smilin’ wit chu.

And here we are . . .
Dancin’ again.

Fire with fire, n’ head to head . . .
Boilin’ and fumin’, our faces are red.

And here we are . . .
Dancin’ again.

Light equals dark
Dark equals light
Yang diming to night
Yin fading from light

And here we are . . .
Dancin’ again
