Wolves and humans share strong individualistic urges
Coupled with a strong kinship with pack family

Our legendary relationship with wolves
evolves from a shared distant constellation connection
Far out as Dog Star Sirius sounds
We all have star-dust encoded in our DNA

A passing Winter Solstice
Leaves behind many souls exiting Earth at this junction
But their imprint lives on

Honoring our ancestors helps guide us into new pathways of being together
In darkness and light we learn from our tribe

Wolf government balances pecking order
with democratic principles

What kind of new trails will we blaze into the year ahead?

We don’t always agree with one another
But may we resolve our difference in harmony

Energy is as energy does
Might as well relax into letting go of trying to control its flow

When feeling moved by annoying family members
Part of meditative path is adjusting ourselves on the inside
so that we are calm during the weather underground of another

Connections with moon
Unlocks knowledge and wisdom

What is lurking beneath your conscious experience with reality?

Wolf awakens a wise teacher within
Sitting with the unfolding mystery

Meditate on your experiences with anger for a moment . . .
Are you finding positive and constructive ways to channel your anger?

Small in stature
Rabbits paradoxically represent
A tribal quest in fertility and new life

Remember there is prolific power in numbers

Ready for stillness in freeze frames
Even when on the hop

A forthcoming New Moon remembers our lunar connection
In alignment with tide’s ebb and flow

Are you about to enter into a 28 day cycle?

Gentleness, versatility, quickness and creativity
Rabbits are rooted in defensive footing and gifted at avoiding conflict
Natural tai chi masters of the internal martial arts are they

Are you being gentle, compassionate and modest in your dealings with others?

While hopping down the bunny trail
We open our hearts to multidimensional visions
of previously unseen possibilities
Snatching up carrots of fleeting opportunities

Dawn and dusk veils thins during these times
We can all dig on the realm of the Faery
Unearthing messages to stay grounded even when scampering out and about

What we resist will persist
Knows the psychology of a self-fulfilling prophecy

Pain is part of life
Might as well say yes to it and face your fears head on
Rather than be a fear callerĀ of it through avoided projections
Otherwise, we just create more suffering

This too shall pass

Having a back door exit strategy when feeling boxed in with anxiety
Is good medicine for a sense of safety and security

Stop worrying or trying to control potential futures
that have not yet come about

Do you need to slow down?

Be careful what you wish for
Well-hidden fears might accompany wishful thinking in cleverly disguised secrets

Appetite comes with eating
Bad apples can only sour our core if we consume their negative energy
Are you planting seeds of goodness
While branching out in the proverbial Tree of Life?

Feeling jealous is merely an informer that the
grass is always greener (or also browner)
depending on our field of vision

Right Tao, A Wesak Full Moon will rise on Wednesday, May 14. Back zen, Buddha’s arrival into our Earth plane helped signal a dawn of a new age at that time. Today, that old world is now fading into darkness, along with it hierarchical imperial ways. But we can’t get to the light without navigating the dark and letting go of indoctrinated systemic programming. A new light of consciousness is streaming in our planet right now and continues its acceleration and ascension process. May Buddha’s compassionate heart-centered light illuminate the shadows of our collective souls. May we allow the energies of this Full Moon leaving us feeling a spring in our step, as yang continues to lift our spirits with an impetus of outward expansion.

May the force be with you with Wolf as your master teacher –
keen senses recognizing what lies beneath the conscious surface . . .
Inspirational well-versed novel ideas, loyalty, family and strong individuality.

Wolf government is an embodiment of neither
pure dictatorship or exclusive democracy.
Bringing a sense of balance into our world.
Humanity, like Wolf are social creatures with both
competitive and cooperative drives for mutual aid.

Bringing in our unique ideas from Dreamtime.
Becoming the Moon integrates psychic energy –
Holding unconscious knowledge and wisdom.

Wolf nudges us to come out of our den –
Sharing everywhere teachings with everyday people.

Spirit lives and wants to rise like sun and shine like moon.
Without forgetting our need for Solitude . . .

When tracking Wolf, we remember a distant Dog Star Sirius constellation –
Connection to our African roots of Dogon tribe –
Digging deep, into dark continental forces . . .
Kinship with lineage from far, far away.

seasons run
shifting tides come undone
moon descends
illuminating water blankets
changing seasons
fleeting feelings transcend

nature’s embodiment of
balanced masculine and feminine
relational equanimity
in transient spring equinox harmony

smiling gold glistening sun-god
permeating our radiant souls
healing our wounds
and expanding our flowing sea of consciousness
whistling though wind chime seashells
beyond the abyss of fear

illuminating our shadowy soul’s
natural rose petal love-light

in our eternal moment of now
drilling into our unrefined well of clean energetic truth
smiling with you
we leap with faith
plunging through and through
together we do

singing a passionate wedding chorus of rekindled seasonal vows
in spite of death, divorce and dirge of waning yin

letting go of winter . . .
waking up to spring . . .

Buds rise up and return to outward yang expansive life again

Pouncing down the trails head, we look forward to a New Moon this week on May 10th and a Full Moon leaping down the month on May 25th. Also, we celebrated the Beltane last week, otherwise known as May Day. This ancient sacred tradition “honors and celebrates the sacred marriage of masculine and feminine, yin and yang” and the “inner union with the Beloved.” It marks the mid-point between the Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice and fertilizes harmony between our spiritual and material growth or walking in alignment with “one foot in spirit, one foot in ground.” Tiger synchronizes with the New and Full Moon cycles as its energetic power time. Consuming Tiger’s spirited medicine helps us develop our passion, power, devotion and sensuality. Meditation on Tiger will wake up your sensitivity to touch. Tiger’s are skilled swimmers, so their energy reflects connection to the elemental forces of water. They are colorful and unpredictable, reflecting the world we live in and the changing times we are swimming in on Mother Earth today. In Chinese Astrology, their sign is seen as adventurous, powerful and passionate and symbolize the dark night of the New Moon and the sunlight of the Full Moon. Given that “traditions are time-tested proof that things work”, meditation on Tiger, in conjunction with a fire ritual facilitates burning away Winter, while shifting our gears full-throttle by igniting Spring.

Something is changing in the sea of consciousness on our Planet today. Although it is a process, it is becoming more difficult for folks to ignore. The garden variety of band-aids used to quell the symptoms that are roaring out to us are less effective in covering up the spirited energies streaming in now. Whether the arrival of symptomatic reactions manifests as distorted visions, racing thoughts, chronic headaches, lethargy, terrorism, mania in the global Stock Exchange–the intensity is rising and the times, they are a changin’. The perception of polarity, duality or “us and them” needs to be released from and healed in our consciousness. Living authentically and respectfully in a global village requires us to sit with the tension of opposites that exists within our individual and collective souls. Every man has a woman inside of his Being, just as every woman has a man within hers. When meditation is embraced as a popular way to consume a spiritual diet, we will see the proliferation of this understanding reflecting in our outer world for everyone to notice as obvious. Right now, you really have to take a close look for the evidence and hold that focus, given the reality of the dark and stormy weather patterns. The smoke and mirrors of our World are an illusion that carry a reality to that perception. In the realm of Infinity, the possibilities of blazing New Trail into a New Frontier are there for us to clear, if only we allow for it. But it is a process that we all have to step-up to on a case by case basis. The Golden Age is not a fixed ideal, where we find ourselves living in after a long, strange trip. Rather, when we change the way we look at the world, the world we look at changes. In this way, we become the change we want to see in the world. We are co-creating novel neuronal pathways inside our brains, signaling our conscious evolutionary next step in our program development.

We all have a basic need to feel safe and secure. However, looking to our outer world to provide that meal for us to eat is frequently met with a receipt for poor digestion. At the end of the day, we all need to access and acquire our internal power for a sense of safety and security. Our spirited animal friends are here to help reflect that back to humanity. True, it is a jungle out there. But have you ever watched animals frolic and play, even among predators and prey? They are good reminders for that. We are shifting from a divisive, compartmentalized view of the World that looks either matriarchal or patriarchical in our shared history, toward Unity Consciousness. In the words of Mr. Miyagi from the film The Karate Kid, we are “different, but same.”
