Can you hear the tweets from our Chickadee peeps in the trees?

Their higher wisdom reminds us that harmony can exist –
If we just remember to breathe . . .

But you can’t do that if you are attached to your position
and listening to the voice in your head, instead of
hearing the heart-mind another

How often do you hear the cheerful expression of truth
in the old world today?

The black truth is that mental illness runs rampant across our planet today
Addictions to dirty energies accompanies this insanity

We have a bloated President,
Towered by an inflated Military-Industrial Complex

New Waves of Divine Love, Light and Truth are trying to enter into
our mind-body-spirits to help us purify our souls development

They want to awaken an authentic healing wellness that resonates in our Being

Our consciousness must transform, and branch out into
greener pastures that grows roots into seven generations ahead

The higher consciousness of Chickadee reminds us that
the truth does not need to hurt but can be sung with a gentle and soft melody

You know we are living in dangerous times, where
galactic violence is accelerating . . .

Many people and Nation States are pounding their chests aggressively –
There is too much posturing, barking, nagging , and machismo military might

It reminds me of a toddler that did not want to share, or was angry
about an age-appropriate limit being set by someone older and wiser

Re-examine everything you have been taught to believe about your
relationship with yourself, and your relationship to the world around you

Look at how you have been conditioned to buy into the belief that
there are winners and there are losers, that people get what they deserve.
And then explore the opposite side of that coin

Meditate on the mantra, “Nothing is as it seems . . . Nor is it the opposite”
But please do so in your heart with  a sweet singing earworm of Chickadee

See you up the trails,

Are you feeling depressed about living your life in the way that feels
programmed by external forces –
as dictated by society, family, friends and peers?

Do you want to live in alignment with your own soul’s purpose?

Do you feel that you suffer from the “disease to please” –
Pressured to fill a need for someone else out of a sense of duty and sacrifice?

If not now then when will master pretenders untangle from
this illusionary web and get wise to this act?

It is safe to turn inward for radical self-examination . . .
Watching what arrives from what once upon a time was submerged –
with a patient and kind heartfelt lens.

In our letting go of control and rigid attachment to expectations –
We open up to abundant Universal surprise birthday parties.

Robin Williams’ unexpected death is a sad reminder . . .
The knife of suicide cuts a deep wound into dark caverns of our psyches.
It is a terribly tragic loss that shakes our foundation.

Suicide is wickedly confusing to a lost soul with
devastating unintended consequences.
But it is not a preferred exit strategy.
Avoiding our pain leads to more suffering.

With meditation we learn to just sit with what is . . .
Rather than exiting with anger and denial.

Physically ending a hellish inner state of consciousness
is not a cease-fire on our souls.
We must rise up from the ashes of our inner demons
Summoning our “better angels.”

As the old saying goes –
Lessons will continue to revisit us until learned . . .
Whether in this life or the next.

Mother once said depression is like a storm that you ride out
without knowing where it will take you.

The cosmetics of our modern world will never fill our soulful appetites
like the Light of Consciousness.

We have discussed the relationship between brother order and sister chaos –
Formless energies awakening into our world of form.
Learning to co-exist in harmony is best medicine.

Out on the streets, jungleland takes root.
A lethal weapon meets arrested development . . .
When will our world’s movers and shakers open up a level playing field
by embracing our diversity within unity?

Remember that in every breath we take . . .
We witness a death and rebirth.

As deeper souls, the leaps we take in our creative development are not without moments of stopping on a dime, hopping around and sometimes having an effective exit strategy.  Rabbit medicine reminds us to harness our creativity by getting in touch with our own fertility.  Further, our business can be our pleasure, while Rabbit helps us bring play into our work.  When our avocation is our vocation, we paradoxically notice results even though we have let go of outcome, through learning the process of investing in loss.  Given their 28 day birth to independence cycle, the energy of Rabbit symbolically links us to the Lunar calendar.  Rabbit embodies the internal martial arts by modeling quickness and defensive action.  Given that rabbits are most active at dusk and dawn, their spirited teachings serve as a portal to the Faery realm, or the space between the material and spirit realities.   

Climate Changes today require that we face great developmental challenges during the transition into a shifting consciousness and New Age.  Our friends in Congress act as roadblocks by enacting back door deals that cut entitlement programs, while boasting like thieves after a looting.  Their gall to give away the niceties of Democracy to protect their own egotism is alarming.  Palestinian activists were bullied off their tent villages by Israeli soldiers, in much the same way our Native American brothers and sisters were by American troops at that time.  But today, our weaponry is more sophisticated and concentrated than it was back then.  With women’s rights on the rise, how do men redefine masculinity in a way that moves beyond wimp or Rambo?  Given the education to prison pipeline that exists in modern America, how do we discipline our children effectively so that they learn from natural and logical consequences, so that they become more inner-directed and self-governing?  Otherwise, our children will look forward to society making decisions for them by locking them up in institutions like prisons and mental hospitals.  This starts in the womb of the home.  Parents need to understand that by giving our children too much freedom, but without setting age-appropriate limits is a receipt for disaster.  I have a brother in jail who is a poster child for this manifestation and will essentially spend his 30’s locked up, provided he exhibits good behavior.  If we do not teach our children the skills to handle the accompanying price tag of responsibility, then we set them up for failure.  I know past students who have fallen prey to mental illness and criminal behavior because they did not learn to take ownership for their actions, make amends and move forward.  Instead, they have given away their power by becoming victims.  In many cases, bad parenting, disability advocates, lawyers and school boards only concerned about the bottom line help perpetuate this vicious cycle.  What we have here is systemic toxicity that certainly isn’t healed by more offshore drilling, drone strikes, manufacturing pesticides that are killing bees and the US Navy decimating our oceans with sonar military might.  Is this not a developmentally delayed value set?

With Rabbit as Animal Spirit guides, we can acquire the skills of gentleness, versatility, quickness and creativity when studying their lesson plans.  Do you need to slow down?  Have you been too busy hopping from one project to another?  Do you need to bring more compassion and modesty in your relations with others?  Are you unconsciously asking Great Spirit to bring more of what you are afraid of to your waking reality?  Remember the wisdom of what we resist persists.  Remember to breathe in your feelings, while allowing yourself to experience and embrace them running through your Being and then releasing them to Mother Earth for healthy compost.  As we transition closer toward the Spring Equinox, it becomes clearer that our growth may arrive in leaps and hops.  When we pay attention to the signs and attune to the Moon, we become more equipped to snatch up the carrot of opportunities that briefly arrive in our field of vision.
