Rebirth

The Eclipse season passes our orbit on this Full Buck Moon on July 5th, 2020. The third, and final eclipse gleans the skies with a Full Lunar Eclipse.

The next Eclipse season will be at the end of November, and mid-December, about a week before the Winter Solstice.

Movement into a New Age and Paradigm continues to accelerate at a more rapid rabbit-like pace.

A respected professional astrologer I know predicts a major doorway for souls to access opening into the Age of Aquarius at that time.

Some people ask that if reincarnation exists, then why do most of us forget our past lives?

Without the gift of forgetting, we wouldn’t be blessed with an awakening to the mystery of life, and choices we are given to make along the roadmap of discovery.

But nobody said becoming mortal, and growing up on Planet Earth would be easy.

And yet it is deeply empowering to take responsibility for the personal choice to find meaning during this lifetime.

Sometimes, finding meaning can be difficult, and require digging deeply into the dark bark mulch of the soul.

Yeah, past lives matter, and future selves are important.

But the gift of the present moment is where the true mystical divinity lives.

Right here, right now.

Is a male deer conscious that his new antlers are going to grow into larger, more powerful ones, or preoccupied with how many points he will end up having on his new rack?

Is he going to get stuck in a rut of analysis paralysis over it?

Probably not.

In much the same way as a deer’s budding antlers, coupled with the New Moon coming on July 20th – the old tracks are fading into the backdrop.

And so it is with the old tracks of a dying old world.

As the past ways fade into yesterday’s rearview mirrors, the birth of a New Earth is growing out of the rubble.

The unknowing facing humanity can be looked at as an opportunity for gentleness on the self, with compassionate allurement into new adventures.

When I think about the masterful predictive algorithms of the stock market, consumerism, and the weather, I am amazed at the mind boggling level of intellectual progress in human manifestation.

But the thing is, everything is changing, and up in the air.

What once served me, or functioned as dazzling spiritual tricks, no longer does.

There are new rules to learn, and respect.

In this process, there will be a new normal. We will need to acclimate, and become wise to it, while saying fairly well to the old normal.

Every soul is here to experience its evolutionary path. This expansion tends to happen by way of a catalyst of adversity.

Sometimes, that evolution looks like taking one step up, and two steps back, or the feeling of being caught up in a holding tank of conservation.

Other times, with the spirited winds at our backs, the opportunity for growth is exponential.

If we are willing to follow through with the commitment, the growth organically attriculates, and shines onto all areas of Being.

Experience teaches that by surrendering to the will of the Universe, I can trust that my boat will be carried to wherever I need to go.

If I can let go of the shores, avoid trying to push the tides, and make myself small, then I can trust, and allow my boat to carry me to my new destination, so that my inner light can shine on the world.

Like when a snake sheds its old skin, the alchemic rebirth of transformation takes place with a new vision, and a renewed sense of choice.

We can all do this.

Till we meet again,

Ari

Some of our ancestors called this Full Moon a Full Flower Moon
because many spring flowers are blooming around this time.

A New Moon arrives on May 22nd.

For various reasons, this Full Moon on May 7th is also being called a Supermoon –
the third consecutive one of its kind in 2020.

This threepeat makes for an appetizing prequel to this
Summer’s polyenergetic Astrological Eclipse Season.

They will be arriving on the Summer Solstice in later June.

Energies intensify more than usual around these times.

But this Full Moon is also called the Wesak Full Moon.

This is symbolic of the Buddha’s Light of Compassion that shines brightly
on the consciousness of our planet at this time.

It’s always good to have a compassionate approach.
But especially good medicine when spirits spring out, and up.

Do whatever you can to ground yourself, so that
your feet stay anchored into the Earth.

In the Northern Hemisphere of the Americas,
many of us remember learning the mantra:

April showers bring May flowers

Today, it’s especially hard to be a student or work at a school
when school isn’t in session.

Many people are out of work, or being told to stay home.
But how do I make a living? What do I do with myself?

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, we are experiencing great adversity –
humans especially, know calamity on the planet right now.

But there are positive signs regarding the environmental impact
of staying home, and consuming less fossil fuels on our ecosystems.

I’m hearing students, and coworkers say that they miss being at school.
This is coming from people that you don’t typically hear express those sentiments.

And I’ve heard stories about areas in the Himalaya’s
that you couldn’t see a month ago.

Reportedly, skies are clearing to show their beautiful vistas
to the world again in that location.

As if we needed any proof that fossil fuels
don’t adversely affect humans, and all Earthlings!

They certainly aren’t good for the multidimensional Universe either.

What you can do with this adversity right now,
is allow yourself to awaken to the present moment,
and sit with what is.

You can become mindful of the energy of your thoughts,
and the emotions that connect to those thoughts.

You can become mindful of your breath, replace your fears,
and quiet your chattering monkey mind with peaceful, calming thoughts.

Do this one step, one breath, and one moment at a time.

On the horizontal level, you can play with the forms, including your own.

Get plenty of rest, practice self-care, follow a routine,
nurture your creativity by writing, making art, music
take photojournalistic pictures, drink plenty of water, and eat healthy foods.

On a vertical level, unplug from the gadgets,
travel inside your body into your formless dimension,
and notice what awakens within you in the quiet darkness.

What comes up for you in this empty space?

Can you come down into your soul into this unknowing,
and unmanifested area of you that might want to become conscious?

This is a place beyond ingrained thinking, and robotic habits.
It is a space beyond linear, clock time, and schedules.

Yet paradoxically, you can access this space within the
mundane tasks of your daily routine.

This is where the magic wakes up by allowing your
consciousness to see the light of day.

This is the place where the
darkness of night walks out in the sunlight.

It is a commingling partnership with our masculine, and feminine beingness –
inside of ourselves, and outward bound with each other.

A Full Pink Moon rises in our skies on Tuesday, April 7th.

But as many of you know, you can feel the effects of a hungry, and
digesting moon cycle a few days prior to, and after the actual Full Moon.

As this current pandemic event spreads,
so does early spring vegetation across the fruit plains of the Americas.

It can be hard not to resist the not so grand waters
of these rapidly shifting tides of life.

Navigating mixes messages can be like that.

There are many who just want life to go back to normal again.

Some of these people are the same people who
have been waiting on the world to change.

But without an inner directed focus, and spiritually
driven internal shifts, it will be harder to experience any
transformation of becoming the change you want to see in the world.

Staying put, and remaining at home seems like
an easy enough mantra to follow.

Unless it is not.

We are invited to turn inward, and reexamine everything.

Polluted canals in Venice are clearing up,
and dolphins are swimming into inlets that hadn’t been.

With less cars on the roads, and jets in the air,
the planet can rest, and take a deep breath.

If this isn’t a time of a planetary, and universal deep
energetic spring cleaning, then I don’t know what is.

Like an agitated swan, maybe the current waters of life
are enough to make you hiss.

But upon a deeper reflection, may Swan awaken an embracement of
staying afloat through grace under fire during an Aries time of year.

A New Moon on the 22nd, brings new beginnings, along with the
current spirit of the season right now.

Like the Corona virus, Spring is a season of transition
that is not without its mixed messages.

There are rememberances of the ghosts of winter in the air,
of old ways of doing things, that might conjure up nostalgia.

And there are the winds of change in the air, like other times
in human history where massive changes have taken place.

It’s easy to forget that when we have been conditioned to
buy into the business as usual mantra.

Like the Hopi elders say, we are the ones we have been waiting for.

Consider that, another name for corona is crown.

The crown chakra is what connects us to our universal connection to Spirit.

We are living in a time of our crown chakras waking up on Planet Earth.

While being quarantined isn’t the preferred outcome,
we are being given an incentive to awaken this prophecy.

Further movement into Spring’s outgrowth of energies,
reflects the rising light, peaking on the Summer Solstice in later June.

As light starts moving downhill after that, will we see
the darkness of this current pandemic clear up?

How will we all continue to respond to its aftershocks,
readjustment, realignment to a new normal way of being?

With the winds of Climate Change picking up, we do have the opportunity
to come down into our souls, and be in our hearts with each other.

We are being prompted to let go of our attachments to our
deeply engrained habitual distractions that have kept us
sufficiently medicated on life supports.

The present moment contains all that is.
You can heal the past, and create a new future trajectory.

This is authentic power, and you can step into your
power at any given moment.

One step, one moment, one breath at a time.

This can become your new reality, and your new habit
of sacred ritual.

Mindful walking, breathing, and way of doing things
shifts your experience with reality, as does the
reality around you changes.

A New Moon arrives on January 24.
And then after that, the Chinese New Year of the Rat on the 25th.

The duality of an old world dying, and a new one
birthing is laborious, and painful to watch at times.

This transition into a new age and paradigm
goes by different names, just like the moons.

Does that early leaf falling in late summer,
bring you into your fears about the waning light,
and cooler temperatures?

Like all transitions, many people are
questioning where they have been,
and where they are going in their lives.

Some say they don’t want to live on the planet anymore.

There are many forms that people play with to do
that in their consciousness by way of escapism, fantasies,
hitching a ride to another galaxy in a spaceship, running from
our feelings, or retreating into a personal bubble.

One of the ways people give up is through death by suicide.

Killing yourself is certainly one of the 10,000 ways into
the valley of death.

But there are more purposeful ways to expand our souls,
and liberate them, rather than by ending your body’s experience here.

Besides, it’s a really traumatic experience, and terribly confusing.

That’s why I try to be mindful of killing with kindness, and
remember to meditate on Groundhog to die without dying.

It makes sense to me that our ancestors celebrated the Imbolc,
because it marked the mid-point between the Winter Solstice, and Vernal Equinox.

The popular American holiday of Groundhog Day reflects
this symbolism because energetically Spring is starting already.

It’s good medicine to celebrate the light rising at the end of the tunnel,
and the wisdom to see light, and dark balancing each other out again.

As dark of a topic as suicide is,
it does not discriminate.

It doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, what your race,
ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation is, what political
party you belong to, or if you are an introvert or extrovert.

Suicide is something most people contemplate.
But most people don’t do it.

And one of the reasons people don’t end their lives is that people think about
the impact it will have on the survivors, and the holy hell it leaves behind.

One of the complexities of suicide is that people
who try to end their lives, or do end their lives
are sick of the pain, don’t want to deal with it anymore,
and wish their pain would go away.

As a survivor of a completed suicide,
it has been a long journey in working through my own healing process.

It hasn’t been easy to look forward to this month in a new way.

Anniversaries can bring all those feelings,
and old stories right back to the surface –
regardless of how deeply submerged or buried they were.

I can still remember getting the call that my mom
had left this Earth 25 years ago, like it was yesterday.

As you can imagine, that wasn’t an easy call to take,
even though I had tried to prepare myself for it from her previous
attempts, and knowledge of how extreme her shifts
between internal order and chaos could be.

I feel thankful to my family, friends, and fraternity brothers
who were there to cushion the blow, and help me see that
a safety net was there when I needed it.

There have been many ebbs and flows along the way,
regarding how I have handled this tragedy, or not handled it.

Like Sting, I have worn the royal crown of the King of Pain,
and traveled through Dark Knight of the Soul.

For a long time, I’ve been good at hiding that side of myself.
Wearing masks can do that.

But it can also show you who you really are before you are
ready to show your dark and shadow sides to others.

The old survival of the fittest paradigm is
part of a dying process, just as are old stories.

On some level, we have believed that “it’s just the way it is.”

People have been put into boxes, and believed in those boxes.

If you didn’t identify with one version of yourself,
or what someone told you about yourself.

Perhaps you’ve rebelled by becoming the opposite side of the same coin.

The grip of those old stories can be hard to let go of.

We humans have believed in them,
and developed attachments to those stories.

Like with all new moons,
this new moon coming is associated with new beginnings.

And so it is with the lunar energy of a new year.

Rats are shrewd creatures, and can symbolize prosperity,
according to Chinese astrology.

What shrewdness, and prosperity do you want to bring to the table,
and manifest on our Planet in the year ahead?

In social science, rats are associated with behaviorism,
and applied behavioral analysis.

Like humans, rats are intelligent creatures.

Sometimes, behaviorism gets a bad rap about
wanting to manipulate, and control people.

But any knowledge that gets in the wrong hands
embodies that kind of stupidity.

I recently saw an old you-tube interview with B.F. Skinner.
And it was illuminating to see him talk about how he
saw his psychology as a way for individuals to empower themselves.

And I don’t think it’s a coincidence that country rats have been
identified as smarter than city rats.

We all do better in smaller, more intimate circles where we feel
part of a community, and organically connected to Nature.

If you can see the maze for what it is, you can then
see yourself rewiring new cognitive maps.

These are the days of creating amazing portals into new ways of being.

A Full Wolf Moon blows in the cold winds on January 10th.

The distractions of the holidays have passed, and the
Sun driven Gregorian New Year eclipses us.

And now many are feeling depressed, as the void of coming down
into the wake of winter’s slumber is setting in.

These feelings are natural, even if demonized, and
feared in our glamorized world of being up all the time.

But we can look forward to a New Moon on the 24th, that is followed closely by
the arrival of the Chinese-Lunar Year of the Rat on the day after that.

Meditate on the tracks of Wolf government . . .
Wolves embody a delicate balance of hierarchy, and democratic principles.

Be mindful of the shrewd inspiration of rats to remember
our intellect to reflect, and evaluate on our current human plight.

Legend has it that even the Buddha was impressed when
Rat was the first one to come learn when he
invited all the animals to his teachings.

You don’t have to look very far to see
the climate of changing tides on the Planet today.

There are many things to grieve about the suffering
we see among our human brothers and sisters.

Yeah, it might be hard not to get seduced by the
enemies of hate spreading like agent orange across
the sands of time.

Watch the dinosaurs of the old paradigm fight tooth and nail
to protect a dog eat dog conditioned mentality that is oppressive.

Remember that those people are suffering the most are afraid
that their power is slipping away by believing that they
don’t have a place in a New Earth.

But everything about that kind of thinking
are merely examples of erroneous zones.

Even if you don’t understand what polarity consciousness,
or diversity in unity means, you probably already realize that
people are more divided nowadays more than yesterdays.

That’s why we souls have come here at this time,
because we must heal the illusion of our perceived separation.

But then again, every soul’s waking up process happens in
its own way, as does their personal transformational process.

As long as I have been on the planet, I have seen this
more pronounced now more than ever.

This is part of our awakening, spiritually speaking.

I was born right around the time that Richard Nixon resigned –
probably right before he would have been impeached.

People forget that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
left his comfort zone of black churches.

He did that with great courage by venturing out into the unknown
to protest the Viet Nam War, and social injustices by crossing over into
the the dominant White, Middle-Class America, and the world at large.

Civil Rights is about asserting the right for everyone to
have equal access to resources. It is about asserting
that we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.

Now we have a Billionaire Class gangster at large in the White House.

But he is just part of the Old Testament Goliath
that represents a dying old world.

The vanity fair of the ego should be our servant
but not our master.

A tao centered way of an Aquarian New Age is on its way,
but we are in the labor pains right now.

It is a similar feeling to when you experience loss
when someone you love dies, moves out of your life,
you go through a death of your old self, your child leaves
for college, you go through a break-up, a divorce,
or leave a job, along with coworkers you see everyday, etc.

Perhaps the gender identity, or your sexuality has
changed, and you now view that part of you as dead,
and a new part of you as born.

Out of the great void, arises a new light, and energies
that come alive inside of you when you
let them flow through your Being.

But around here, part of playing the blame game,
and being a blamenator, is to take things personally.

In this sphere, we see criticisms as personal attacks,
and then become defensive.

I know this because I have been good at those things during my lifetime.
In fact, I have been gifted at it.

At some point, you have to get sick of being sick, and realize
that by softening your will, and by surrendering to the
will of the Universe, you aren’t losing or selling out.

If you can access faith and trust, it will shed light
in the tunnel of darkness – however dimly lit.

By not drawing your sword, and going to war with another person,
you are actually getting in touch with yourself on a deeper level.

Remember that the definition of insanity is to keep doing
the same thing over and over, and expecting different results.

And here we are with our weapons of mass destruction, wars, cyberbullying,
and deleting each other because we fear our apparent differences.

We have to stop attracting this kind of energy if we are
going to stop creating it.

We can have our philosophical disagreements, and work
them out through peaceful, and non-violent means.

If you want make a difference, like Ghandi said,
you have to become the change you want to see in the world.

Instead of being seduced by your anger, hate, fears, etc.,
listen to your internal informers, and be curious about why
you are really feeling that way.

Respect isn’t an entitlement.
It may be earned, but it should be given no matter what.

Might as well make respect a daily habit.

Do you remember the Golden Rule?

Heaven and hell are inner states of consciousness.

You always have a choice about which gate you go through.

You can heed the call of your lower self (demons), and make
the transition into your Higher Self (better angels).

It isn’t about walking around with a yoke around your neck,
or following the dictates of what society says you should.

You’ll know when your head and heart are in alignment when
you do the right thing just because it’s the
right thing to do out of your own goodness.

It doesn’t matter who agrees with you, or who is on your side.
Just try to see souls over roles when you co-mingle with our human family.

Till we tweet again peeps,

The Imbolc is coming, which represents the mid-point
between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

And the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Pig comes on
February 5th, along with a New Moon the day before that

So the new energies of a new year are still strong right now . . .

Of course in The United States, the popular
Groundhog Day tells us if we have six more weeks of winter,
depending on whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow.

The energy of Groundhog awakens the death of the old self
without actually physically ending your life.

I wonder how many suicides could be prevented if, or even
the public’s general fear of death might relax,
if a healthy energetic diet of
Groundhog medicine was more consistently consumed?

Changing seasons, death without dying,
and even physical death itself,
is merely a transition.

Like the Law of Transience teaches us,
all life is not without change.
It’s one constant that we can count on.

Given that groundhogs hibernate in winter,
and dig elaborate underground homes,
it makes perfect sense that they symbolize
digging into our subconscious,
to see what might be hiding beneath
the shadows of our conscious reality.

Meditation on Groundhog can awaken a sense that
there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Use these energies to be curious about what feelings have been
simmering cautiously beneath the surface of your conscious experience with reality

Perhaps they will lead you into the depth of your humanity and personal divinity

Just a shift in perspective can literally transform
the way the world looks right in front of your eyes . . .

See you onward along the trails,

I remember hearing an amazing story recently,
about a hawk swooping out of the sky,
and then unexpectedly offering a freshly killed snake,
as a surprise gift along the path of a startled traveler . . .

Given that Hawk symbolizes the power of observation,
we are invited to see what messages are being sent to us from Spirit . . .

What does Snake have to say to you about the power
of fire that burns within our soul?

Election Day swoops in tomorrow,
along with a New Moon on Wednesday . . .

The winds of change are swirling around in the air!

Hawk has connections with New Moons,
and Mercury . . .

And at the tail end of next week, we will be revisited by
Mercury in Retrograde again.

Many people experience spacing out more at that time, or feel like
they are walking in a Twilight Zone kind of reality.

But Mercury in Retrograde is also a good time to look at things
in a different light, venture deeper into the dark,
and give rise to a new moon shine through a wider angle lens.

Of course New Moons are always associated
with new beginnings . . .

Our ancestors believed that the wall between the
spirit and material realms relaxed at this time of year,
making it easier for our different worlds to intersect.

If you magnify that with the energies streaming in right now,
it might be tempting to get sucked into your fears,
and find yourself coming from places of hate . . .

But try to trust in the Universe, and its vibration of
Love and Truth to light our way together, as we
move further into a new connections.

It is a good time to meditate on letting go of old ways, old boxes,
shedding the conditioning of our old skins,
so that we can awaken to new,
more porous ways of being at this time.

Snake reflects metamorphosis . . .
Yesterdays shadows want to transform into the light of healing

Perhaps you venture down into a snake hole in your consciousness,
and see how you can come up with new eyes to look at
your past fears in a fresh way . . .

Emotions are waxing now, and will be further amplified
by a Full Beaver Moon on November 23rd.

Beavers are epic builders, and like to get their work done
before swamps freeze for the Winter . . .

I think about how many of our Founding Fathers were Freemasons,
and that their animal totems empowered them to create in a new industry,
while building a New World back then.

Perhaps this could be an invitation into the realm of Temperance
regarding anger about their ignorance of their injustices at that time,
in spite of the Divine expression that manifested as the Constitution.

But consider that people didn’t even know that
dinosaurs existed on this planet
at the time when this sacred document was written.

What is looked upon as conventional science today,
can easily become yesterday’s dinosaur!

The will of the people are speaking up.
We might as well hear the messages that are being spoken!

Today, we are waking up again to new perspectives,
frontiers, and ways of being together.

Do you hear Cardinal whistling a prequel
to the intensities of Summery breezes blowing in the wind?

When I think about suicide, and reflections of some of Anthony’s Bourdain’s
comments about his own arrested development, tasting desperate, privilege,
and the tension of opposites he felt about his
personal wrestling with the interplay between order and chaos . . .

I can understand how he would have had enough of
the pain and suffering in this world, and felt like it was time to check out

Truth is, it can be hard to suck it up, get up,
and keep moving forward in the natural school of Hard Knox . . .

The trick is to learn how to make friends with your inner angels and demons,
and integrate your past selves with the new beginnings of your rebirth . . .

Can you hear Cardinal’s virtuous voice singing
songs about the winds of change blowing in?

Her chorus echoes a callback about empowering us to transition
into the vibration of an innate feminine power!

Perhaps you see yourself as a generalized, intense masculine charged,
get things done, taskmaster doer!

That’s OK, so long as you don’t get identified with that role
Otherwise, you can bet your bottom dollar on a slippery slope ahead . . .

Connect with your heart, let her light your way with your head held high,
with a wide angled gaze in your field of vision . . .

It can be challenging to tune into Nature’s mixed messages that blow in
different directions around our Planet

On one perch, Cardinal reminds us to nurture our own life force –
But too much fire from the sun’s rays can burn you at the stake

Might as well remember to wax on our creative energies
and wash our feminine selves with the watery tides of our intuitive faculties

Time to come out of hiding behind the shadows,
and let your inner light shine like the sun

Meditation on Cardinal’s energy awakens
exploration of traditional, old school values . . .

These re-discoveries are divergent planetary systems of thought
from unconventional beliefs that are worth remembering

Masculine yang gains ground,
while Summer Solstice reveals peak sunlight later this month,

Follow the moonlight toward the Monty of a Full Strawberry Moon
when it bears its fruit at the tail end of the June . . .

See you next time along the trails,

New weather patterns are here, and Woodpecker’s drumming synchronizes
with new beginnings associated with next Monday’s New Moon . . .

Spring’s new growth aligns with winds of change
happening today on this classroom known as Earth

Mercury in Retrograde remembers the ghosts of Winter’s passing

Time to revisit old relationships and memories
that have been hibernating underground

They are reminders of our old selves that are
climbing out of the darkness into the sunlight

This is a good time to examine dead wood in order to unearth new growth,
so that we can rise up with the tides as we
move toward the peak energies of Summer Solstice

We all need to find our own unique rhythms
that will help us traverse our budding New World . . .

How do we tune into our own drum beat, and at the same time harmonize
with the heartbeat of those in our outer social drumming circles?

Meditation on Woodpecker can help stimulate clarity and drum up the universal
feminine heartbeat of compassion . . .

Dig into the art of discrimination,
and analyze what you need to transform in your life

Do you need to cultivate new boundaries between your self and others?

Was there a time when your old habits,
and behavioral patterns were an engrained part of your identity?

Are you being given an opportunity to take a look at those myths about yourself,
so that you can let them go, and move into the new self you want to become?

See you up the trails,

Herring soars into soulful skies again –
echoing Sea Gull sounds of symbolic subtleties in communication . . .

A Pisces New Moon breathes in
incoming energies of Mercury in Retrograde, and Spring Equinox

In a few days, light/dark/masculine/feminine/yin/yang energies
will be together again in natural equality . . .

Yet it also feels like an endless
Winter replay during this seasonal transition

Hard to believe spring fever will be in the air again,
whilst fragrant flowers are blossoming as we speak . . .

Old networks of friendships and other relationships are coming back to visit

Part of mindfulness is noticing body language,
and other non-verbal ways of communicating with each other

Inner peace and happiness are not without remembering
the depth of deep soul wounds that bring back hurt feelings

Forgiveness starts with your own healing . . .
It doesn’t have anything to do with someone else really

But anger is a natural emotion offering
opportunities for deeper examination

When you choose to not take the happenings around us personally,
you end up feeling more empowered and less swayed by the ways of the world

Beneath life’s herrings, Nature reveals to us opposites are everywhere . . .

Sometimes, silence is a higher spiritual form of communication
But paradoxically, so is speaking your truth, and standing up for what is right

Meditation on opening our mouths to releasing spirit,
while closing our mouths to holding spirit in . . .

This is a conversational exchange between order and chaos!

See you up the trails,

Ari
