Turtles have been living on this planet longer than dinosaurs
Humans have been living on Earth less than that

And yet many of us are living like dinosaurs, caught up in a karmic loop
of the reptilian mind – obsessed with order and control issues

A perpetual state of fear is the psychological reality for many
the glass is seen as half empty, which creates anxieties about the fear of loss

But Turtle’s shells reflect safety, security and protection

It’s always good to slow down and return to the mindfulness of our breath

With a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and Lunar New Year arriving this week
Stirrings of Spring energies are waking up underground

Can you feel their movement into new beginnings and foreshadowing
of above ground changes in the air, like a fading stock exchange
and military-industrial complex?

We are all children of God, even Donald Trump
The time is now to purge and release our ideas of separation

Us and Them kind of thinking is devolution
Demonizing our demons will not bring us to the Light

Why are there movements to impeach Donald Trump,
hold power abusers accountable, create a more equitable economic system,
nurture minority/woman’s rights, and
provide safety nets like universal health care?

Will Trump quit before he gets impeached, then live out the rest of his life
pontificating about being persecuted, and ensconced in seeing himself as a victim?

Why is there such push back to justify going to war against perceived enemies,
under the guise of national security?

It is because oppression needs to have a privileged few on top,
and an overwhelming majority on the bottom to feed the machine

But we are all in this together . . .

Human beings are complex creatures, and our relationships
are greater than the sum of our parts

Look upon one another as mirrors to help us reflect the light of love and truth

Remember that it takes less energy to love than to hate

It has been said that Dog is “man’s best friend” . . .

In this Chinese New Year of the Dog, meditation on Dog can inspire
a deep compassion for our human shortcomings,
and loyalty to our one human family

Owl awakens wisdom from our dreams and meditations . . .
Symbolically connecting us to the feminine energies of the moon

See through the realm of deception . . .
With the clairvoyant vision of a wise old eagle of the night

These cat-like winged creatures primarily feed off Mouse . . .
Owls are good reminders that “we all have our blind spots”

Let Owl illuminate your shadow side and unveil the shady aspects of others

Moving with Owl further into darker nights of the soul . . .
Resurrects the Idea of Reincarnation

Here we are where everything old is new again
Are you being revisited by the ghosts of yesteryear?

Falling autumnal leaves are changing colors –
Reminding us that death is part of life

We bear witness to the curtains being pulled back –
Revealing a thinner veil between material and spirit realms

Looking back into the rear-view mirror upon ancient Greece
Athena is pictured as the goddess of wisdom

Wise up to the perception that modern Greece
Challenges the way of the dominant world economy . . .

A sneak preview to Goliath falling down –
We are glimpsing a portal into a New Age and Paradigm

Are you using or developing your intuitive and psychic powers?

Owl swoops in to take a deeper look at details, secrets or hidden knowledge

God is the Alpha and Omega . . .
An interplay between seen and unseen forces flowing together

Be mindful of the gravitational pull that
dark edges attract to feed off the energy of another

Yellow eyes reveal that even in dark, there is light

Try to recognize that being seen and heard isn’t a red alert . . .
But it does require trust and an open heart

Especially when reading prophecy, signals and omens

Becoming flexibility relaxes tension during these changing seasons

It might be the end of the world as we know it
But we are still here to light up our world with collective souls

Bear Medicine represents introspection
Shy unless provoked – gentle giants are they

Meditation on Bear reminds us of the wisdom that
Truth is sweet like honey
Setting us free

Do you need to venture deep within yourself and
draw on your instinctive powers or other natural resources?

Our inner lights are fading yin-ward into the shades of waning Full Moon
Standing in the space of knowing is a marketing free zone
When we enter the center of a circle, there is nobody to convince or sway

Are your judgments off-center?

Do you remember when the stock exchange crashed
and the wealthiest Americans began paying around a 90% tax rate?

Meditation on the Taoist idea of investing in loss reveals
A Bear market knows the time is now to let our
Bullish and expansive material emphasis go into hibernation
We venture closer to the dark night of Winter Solstice

Now is the time to let our greed and arrogance rest in peace

There is a natural impetus to come back down to earth right now
in our relationships with one another, her creatures and our planet.

A more sustainable and equitable way to live wants to express itself

The more the empire tightens its controlling grip
the more unwanted disorder falls through its cracks
and the more painful this process will be

We set our souls free from feeling trapped in our physical bodies
By knowing we are all created in the image of Creator

We bear witness to the death of the illusion of the material reality
Entanglement with form relaxes by
letting go of our sense of expectation and outcome

Do you need to withdraw from the ways of the world for a spell?
Or do you need to come out of your cave and be more social?

We become pregnant with ideas during dimming lights
Dreaming of planted seeds growing in the underground basement of our souls

Spring Equinox on horizon signifies
a rebirth with arrival of budding Spring Eclipse Season
Cubs want to come out and play

All we need is patience to think before we speak
Being open-heartedly inquisitive in our politics of living
Cultivates plasticity of the mind
Revolutionary zeal without the hate
Loving ourselves is loving our planet

Are you using your helping abilities properly?

Prayer is an active, yang-masculine way of stating our intention for
manifesting and expanding – like sending a message out to the Universe.
Meditation is a receptive, yin-feminine state for
contracting and welcoming messages from our
subconscious and unconscious faculties.

We are all an embodiment of masculine and feminine energies
designed for walking with one foot in spirit and one foot in ground

Edgy dark magicians are only able to pull the wool over
us as long as we buy into the hellish nightmare that we are separate from God

But Christ was an embodiment that shed light on a way and truth
reflecting the Kingdom of Heaven as an intrinsic state of Being
Happiness will not come about by the objects of our affection

Do you believe in your capacity to quiet your mind and
receive solution-focused messages from that stillness?
Can you hear your inner voice speaking to you through the sound of silence?

Our treatment of bears mirrors how serious we are about
the preservation of our environment and natural resources
Reminding us of the possibility that bears, humans
and all God’s creatures can live together in harmony

After this latest American election cycle – beyond the cheers and jeers
of preferred or unwanted outcome
Are you seeing the good deep within all situations?

Meditation on examining our fears and uncertainties is a revolutionary revelation.
Forgetting where we buried our acorns jogs our memory of why we are here . . .

Part of the joy ride of watching a captivating movie
is the thunderous road of what the end will bring –
Uncomfortable as that might be, it keeps us well seated.

Autumn Equinox is rapidly approaching . . .
Here we are standing here my dear –
Gathering in preparation – getting organized and storing away
what we might need for a later day down the strand.

In these changing times and fortunes . . .
It is as if our nervous woodland creature friends on the trails are
Quarterbacks signaling cadences to us to command the field
for a sustainable game plan come playoff time –
Sensitively without driving ourselves or others nuts in the process.

We all need to learn how to manage our own energy.
There is a time for being active and a time for rest.

Getting in Lordship alignment with Universal Mystery
with empathy, curiosity, forgiveness and understanding –
rather than resistance – is good medicinal chi.

Out with the old, in with the new . . .
Letting go of clutter instead of hoarding promotes general welfare.

Sharing and releasing our greed is good harmony for all God’s creatures
with a free-spirited genetic blueprint to live
in accord with rhythmically balanced and soulful dance-steps.

See you further on down the trails,

Protection, faith and loyalty . . .
Are messages shared with us from our Canine family.

Descendants of wolves and coyote are they.
Are you being faithful? What about folks around you?

Selfless and playful generosity from a four-legged community.
Are you playing enough in your journey?

With Dog as our guide we retrieve
Spirited messages from the Dreamtime . . .

The only constancy is change.
Let go and let God in by trusting in unfolding fluidity.
What is passes us fleetingly.
Within this uncertainty is medicinal safety and security.

Dog is a protective co-pilot –
While navigating our inner trails.
Do you need to be more protective of your territory?

A true and loyal friend –
Dog reflects an authentic relationship with our Higher Selves.
Are you being faithful to yourself?

Nobility in the service to others –
In its true nature, Dog embodies a
tolerant spirit genuinely asking to be of service.

In the selfishness of going out to fetch . . .
There is selflessness in returning the catch.
We walk with balanced footsteps in giving and receiving.

Thank you Dog for your deep and compassionate understanding
of human shortcomings.
Are you showing unconditional love or allowing yourself to receive it?

Weaving in understanding into our developing story –
Awakens a deeper feeling of empathy for humanity.

See you further on down the trails,

Ari

illusionary divisions befall

Imagining in the beginning

Nirvana, alienation and nothing in between

And so it was back zen as it is right Tao –
an opportunity to create . . .

(Big Bang)

To know Myself – experientially

Boundless Energy . . .

Now with a point of reference
Of discovery, forgetting and remembering
(sometimes simultaneously)

Who am I?
Who are you?
Who are we?

And where are we going?

Together as One . . .

Never separate . . .

Merely an illusion of disconnection

My creation reveals
My image in you
In the moment of Now . . .

My sleepy children
Awaken from your hibernation
Venture from Plato’s Cave
You must confront your darkest shadows
Before you may bask in the light of your soul

Mindfully Embracing your thoughts and feelings
Connecting the dots of your behavior
Piecing together the mysterious puzzle of

Infinite Intelligence

Sometimes, my apparent grandest creations
Appear timid and weak

Conversely, seemingly insignificant creations
Manifesting as a critical catalyst
For evolutionary growth

Defenses are eradicated
By expanded consciousness and transcendence

Finally understanding my Universal Language . . .

Love is as Love does
