2017 the number!
Sound the trumpet of the Bald Eagle in thunder . . .

Tragic events like Hurricane Harvey,
and unexpected deaths of loved ones are hitting us hard

But the winds of Climate Change still ride the lightning and strike on rising waters

We all have to work together, and do our part in order to
Trump the Towers that Be . . .

From neurons to neighborhoods,
we are moving into a new frontier of we consciousness

Here in this hard land,
we must move forward by enduring painful tragedies of life . . .

A dirge moves toward the Autumn Equinox, while
songs of waning life, death and dying are blowing in the wind . . .

Survivors guilt always circles around our hearts,
and crops up in our souls . . .

Might as well give ourselves permission to grieve
by leaning into any uncomfortable feelings . . .

May we be guided into illuminating our better angels of compassion and empathy,
given any unwanted emotions we might be experiencing intensely right now

It is harder to hide now from facing the sobering uncertainties of life,
that are magnified by the lack of control that can level our conscious minds . . .

Grandfather Sun is always with us,
even as dark nights move closer in from a shady horizon

It takes a leap of faith to walk into the uncertainty of Infinity . . .
Spirit has a Divine Plan that we might as well surrender to

Picture an eagle’s talons to strengthen your personal authority so that you can
balance earth’s gravitational pull with your free-spirited creative energy

Release any feelings of having clipped wings that hold you back
and welcome your feet anchored in the ground!

Till the next trailhead,

Ari

Woodpecker’s drumming awakens visions of Mother Earth’s
changing heartbeat, energetic pulsing and weather forecast

And yet Friday’s Pink Full Moon remembers our shared blessing of Buddha’s Light
that paved the way for Christ’s Love

Love, Light and Laughter are good medicine ladies and gentlemen

Woodpecker’s spirited teachings help us drill into deeper
soulful exploration in other realms, dimensions, new vistas and novel experiences

A New Age of Aquarius is getting closer . . .

You can go your own way by marching to the beat of your own drum

Stillness speaks to us in a way that lights up our right brains
Here we transform into Homo Luminosity
Literally walking in a Heaven we can see during our Earthwalk

Wake up expecting synchronicity and yet paradoxically let go of expectations . . .

Step up to inner peace by walking in the present moment and
accepting the Now for what it is

Sometimes, you have to face your fears head on and then realize that it is
really more frightening to avoid our fears than it is to lean into them

It’s been three years since the tragic terrors in Boston
exploded in our consciousness . . .

But there have been many terrorist acts there and elsewhere,
before the city was known as Beantown

We should learn from our experiences with fear and acting out violently that
these old dramas only recycle wasted energy and subsequently stagnate growth

But then again, it is Spring and Yang is expressive in His outward growth
May we redefine masculinity by softening Him with a gentle, yet powerful
showering of a feminine Yin energetic cleansing

Let us remember Prince’s inner light was tall in stature
but not confuse his celebrity, ability to push the cultural envelope and talents
to sing and dance, nor applause culture as a true remedy for pain

Like all deaths, his passing gives us permission to grieve with sadness in our hearts

The arts, music and sports are really just games to be playfully experienced –
Regardless of outcome or who wins . . .

May we learn new ways of evolving into a more fair and just society
where empathy and compassion are our politics of Being . . .

May we hit the pause button when it comes to profit-driven over working
at the expense of the players and performing artists who entertain and distract us

There are no enemies . . .
Compete with your opponent but send them love to lighten up the match!

Till the next trail head junction,

Ari

I am looking forward to the forthcoming arrival of my first professionally published book, Something to Chew On: Digesting Healthy Spiritual Food for the Soul in the Calendar Year Ahead. I will keep you posted regarding when it will be released to the public. This book is a collaboration of my writing and my Aunt Barbara’s artwork. I have confident faith that it will be a helpful trail guide along the path of walking meditation.
