Elusive Owl extracts wise old secrets . . .
Effectively penetrating the dark caverns of our Collective Soul.

Criticisms and sarcasms can be a hard rain falling
for a sensitive heart and soul to take
Is it just another’s misdirected negative energy to shake off?
Or constructive feedback to a hidden self
basking in shadowy parts unknown –
Patiently waiting to be unearthed to see the light?

Instead of being deceived by illusionary demons.
Courageously we stand with the gentle gaze of Deer –
Welcoming in our better angels.
All we have to do is ask!

A.K.A. Cats with wings –
Our spirits silently soar . . .
To magical places where we foresee
Seeds of new realities sewn consciously.

Returning power to sender.
Rather than giving it away –
or taking the energy of another.

See through ulterior motives
With keen observational intuition

Holding a vision of the whole truth
Unveiling the curtain of master illusionism

Knowing our shadow sides –
Detailed oriented Mouse and other small rodents
Relaxes our fear of the dark.

Owl symbolizes death and reincarnation . . .

What is hidden within you that is frightening to look at?
Even in darkness, there is light.

Old Man Mountain breathes fire . . .
Into the din of ordinary Life.

Good fences make good neighbors.
That’s just the way it
is says the old guard –
Berlin Wall Border Patrol in the Americas –
All Along the Watchtower is a virtual Fourth Reich . . .

Simultaneously cross-pollination cultural diversity in community
is born into a New Earth.

Breaking common grounds gives inner peace a chance.
But a chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Power off alliances between drummed up
war boundaries that fear one another.
How do we make friends with the tension
of protecting, relaxing, redefining and clearing away our boundaries?
From Neurons to Neighborhoods,
How Smart are these technologies?
Try not to get too swayed from the Middle Way.
Remember that the same systems that oppress can liberate.

Why not only kill with kindness?

Autumn Equinox arises –
Transiently we know balance in our masculinity and femininity.
Thereafter – dark night rises.

The 60’s man . . .
Massive changes coming today we can hardly fathom.
Might as well say yes to the Universe as it is –
Rather than resist it with old self ego attachments.

See you further on up the trails,

When we remember Turtle . . .
We are becoming Mother Earth.
There is no separation in Unity.
But we celebrate our diversity.

Her ancient shell is soulful protection –
for weathering Climate Change.

While embodying reciprocity in our harmonic communion with our Mother –
We are giving back our shared blessings to Her as She gives it up to us.
(In our New Earth, this is what a true free market exchange looks like.)

Do you need to retreat into your shell to honor your feelings for a spell?
Do you need to give a warning snap to those that have stoked your embers?

Meditation on Turtle’s medicinal energy lays eggs of grounding creativity . . .
In working with elemental forces of Water and Earth –
We are harmonizing with our environment.

The Empire has programmed us to push the river and swim upstream . . .
Turtle inspires us to gently pass on forceful enticements with care.
Do you remember the story of the Tortoise and the Hare?

Patiently pacing ourselves in alignment with Nature’s cyclical patterns –
Following Her changing tides with a waning Full Moon.
Subtle hints of an Autumnal Equinox . . .
Eclipsing us on a not-so-distant horizon.

While manifesting our goals –
Why not consider powerfully arriving rather than forcefully striving?

Bury your thoughts in the sand and allow the sunlight to do its business.
With Turtle, we welcome abundance into our lives.

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.

Might we look at our experiences of yesteryear as past lives? Aren’t we humans supposed to evolve – in that we venture into and move through common developmental stages in Life? Yet our growth does not always feel graceful and is often not without pain. Yes we are shaped by our past. But we need not be defined by it. Have any of your past selves been good at reacting to what is? It can be such a challenge to sit with the present moment and deal with unwanted and uncomfortable feelings, such as guilt and shame. Do you try to bypass these feelings by exiting with aggression or denial? Tempting as avoidance is, taking an authentic look at our souls with a reflective lens and sitting with that is empowering. Getting out in Nature helps rekindle the fire within. When I noticed the rabbit tracks in the snow the other day, I wondered how far the rabbit hole do I want to go? I can’t help but remember our ancestral connection to the lunar cycle and the ebbs and flows of the tides. Can you feel the crocuses wanting to wake up and show us that Spring is just around the corner to the light of day? A Full Moon on March 16th symbolizes completion and celebration. Are we building a global community in the spirit of honoring one another’s gifts by sharing resources? These politics of living help us move into a New Age and Paradigm more gracefully. In our husbandry, we experience labor pains. It’s how we move with our Mother’s labor pains that matters most.

During this Pisces time of year, we are leaving behind Winter and welcoming Spring. It is a good time of year to let go of the ghosts of yesterday. Our relationships with others give us opportunities to get to know ourselves, in rank and beauty, on a deeper level. Like seasons, relationships come and go. But their energy remains with us until we learn the lessons we need to learn. In that, we experience both literal and figurative deaths, divorces and separations. Sometimes it’s like two planets come together in orbit for a while and then change their trajectory and drift apart. We have relationships with everything – habits, food, drink, substances, our developmental stages in life, a psychological trait, a significant other, the stock exchange, class, a pet, books, etc. When a relationship shows us something we do not want to see, it is easier to have the wool pulled over us and get caught up in the illusion of separation.  But we are not separate.  Even that homeless person on the street, in a mental institution or on death row is part of our being. And they are worthy of a silent blessing. When we remember to have compassion for the triggers and defenses of others, we help them lower their guard to have meaningful exchanges. Seek first to understand, then be understood. Water is a powerful elemental force that builds its momentum gradually. It has a cleansing effect on our consciousness. This is a good time of year to meditate on water. In that process, try to go with the flow rather than swim upstream.

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

Our Town
Here on Mothership Gaia, in dying Pisces centuries
Birthing into a New World of Aquarian Unity
An old age built on wireless, in sweatshops on other shores
And they built the satellites that helped the Empire win Star Wars

Here in Our Town
Here in Our Town
My sweet Eartha I’m sinking down
Here Buddha in Our Town

Well Granny’s working at Wal-Mart
Keeping aisles tidy to sell
Always greets customers with a smile
A job that’d suit a robot as well
Property taxes rising, lost my job without pay
Mr. Le Page took down the Labor Wall
As small businesses sail away

Here in Our Town
Here in Our Town
My sweet Eartha I’m sinking down
Here Buddha in Our Town

Well my Grampy’s off the Waterfront
Now he’s come to join Occupy Main Street
Our yard’s just rusty lobster traps
Cuz the Hidden Hand did what fishermen couldn’t do
These seas are filled with tales of mermaids and whales
Swimming these ocean floors
We sent our daughters to department stores
Now we’re wondering what they’ve been buying for.

Here in Our Town
Here in Our Town
My sweet Eartha I’m sinking down
Here Buddha in Our Town

From the Harmonic Convergence
To the 9th Cosmic Wave
To the instant Karmic Groundhog Days
That tired story remains the same
Crystalline Grids are rising
Now mister you tell me the world’s changed
Once working folks made a few wealthy enough–bought up deeds
to forget our own names

In Our Town
In Our Town
My sweet Eartha I’m sinking down
Here Buddha in Our Town

When I die tonight I’ll eat a Slice of Heaven
And digest it mystically well
I pray to God to bathe me in Light
As I leave behind my human shell
