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.

I remember when Hawk flew-over
the trails on the last New Moon.

This reminded me about them being symbolic of new beginnings,
and sacred connections with New Moons, Hawk and Mercury.

Mercury in Retrograde springs forth relationships from our past
that often circle back to the present.

Sometimes, these reunions revisit us in a variety of forms of phone calls,
post cards, letters, emails, or other virtual social media platforms.

Or they might come in the form of dreams, visions, or memories of
someone you might not have known back in the day, or even in the flesh.

The point is we are given opportunities to revisit, and rework old
patterns so that we can release old ways, and rewrite new scripts.

But pretty soon, a Full Worm Moon will be in effect on
Monday, March 9th, and then Mercury goes Direct again.

On the day before that, Daylight Saving Time begins,
signals the call to the light.

As the fog lifts, and the skies clear,
may red breasted robins remind us that the early bird gets the worm.

Can you feel the winds of change whistling to you in the air?

Our days are getting longer, which tends to
spring forth an outgrowth in spirits, and budding energies.

And then, Yin and Yang will be equal again on
the Vernal Equinox on the first day of Spring on March 19th.

This is a time when Nature shows us equality
between masculine and feminine energies.

The Yin and Yang are always in flux,
as the one constant in Life is change.

We are in a Pisces time of year, which is a good
time to meditate on the water element,
and the fishes of the sea.

Have you ever noticed that fighting against the current leaves
you feeling more submerged underwater, than going with the flow?

Meditation on Whale is good medicine to tap into
the heartbeat of the planet, remember our history,
and know where we are going.

These great creatures have a living memory, and crystalized wisdom
that we might as well heed, and respect.

Like it or not, we are swimming into the waters of different pods,
and new ways of defining family constellations.

Do you ever wonder why an elderly, Jewish, card carrying Socialist that
hasn’t forgotten about the Civil Rights movement of the 60s,
continues to be written off as an “electable candidate” by
the corporate media, and even liberally-minded voters?

Where does that voice come from that says we can’t afford to
subsidize quality health care, or free college education
for those who want to access higher learning?

Or why the two major political parties
are so against Rank Choice Voting?

Consider that Donald Trump, and his friends in the Billionaire Class
that control the resources want nothing to do with a civically
engaged public because it seemingly threatens their way of life.

This way of life says that your ability to make money makes you better
than those that are not, and it is predicated on property rights, and privilege.

But really, it’s just that they want to control where the
“general welfare” goes, and who benefits from it.

Everything about that kind of thinking is wrong, because what we
are talking about is what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

It is impressive how in the dark people are about where
the money comes from, and where it goes.

That’s why the bulk of the money in the Military-Industrial (Economic) Complex
hides in shadowy “black hole” accounts.

By and large, the Billionaire Class prefers to go unexamined,
and wants to keep it that way.

Like when the white slaves, and black slaves were manipulated
by the slavemaster to believe one was more of an underclass
than the other, and therefore inferior.

Today, the ego of the habituated mind is addicted to
segregated, us and them kind of thinking.

There are those that are entitled to preferential treatment,
and those that are not, says the voice in the head.

But where does that come from?

Perhaps it’s about time that the age old social democratic values that
have been muzzled in this country come out into the sunlight.

Opening up to abundance means that there is enough, and everyone can win.

And if you are sick of getting sucked into March Madness,
and election year politics . . .

Think about the frogs and salamadars finding their way
to vernal pools on Big Night. See them arriving to their breedings grounds,
safe and sound so that we can all carry on our merry way in peaceful coexistence.

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.

Father Sun will reach his zenith on the lightest day of the year
on the Summer Solstice on Thursday, June 20th.

Is it a coincidence that Father’s Day is on the Sunday before that?

Adding to the festivities is the arrival of a
Full Strawberry Moon on Monday, June 17th.

There are a lot of celebrations in the air right now.
High School graduations, and award ceremonies galore.

I wonder what would happen if these seasonal celebratory
vibes were less staged, compressed, and instead were
organically woven into everyday life?

And what if celebrations were less about recognizing winners and losers –
but more about simply catching each other being good, like
noticing random acts of kindness?

When I think about the power of empathy in relationships,
I remember to notice the common core standards of the sun and the moon.

Without one, we would not have the other.
Nor would we have any water to drink, air to breathe, or planet to live on.

The Sun has his fire, and the Moon has her emotional tides.
But they don’t judge each other for their different approaches.

They are good role models that way.

We could stand to remember that when we think about the
popular desire to win an argument with someone else.

Who really wins anyway?

If the Sun remembers to bring his light to the Earth,
and the Moon remembers to bring her waters –

Then it stands to reason that we can learn from the Nature about
the power of male and female energies working together during these
difficult times of change and transition that we are living in right now.

Nobody really wins with dripping sarcasms, and us and them kind of thinking.

Yeah, you might feel special when you are given a secret decoder ring to
belong to a club that boasts privileged entitlements.

But a sense of entitlement – that things will be given to you,
or you should get your way, is a receipt for unhappiness.

It isn’t easy to be present with someone who is saying
something that you don’t like to hear.

And it doesn’t get any easier when someone is abusing their power
by throwing their voice by using disrespectful language.

Perhaps you feel fed by getting charged, or developing an attitude
against someone or some group of people that you demonize or see as an enemy.

But you aren’t going to balance the wheels by making them pay
via a punitive, heavy hitting consequence.

A lot of people in jails still see themselves as victims,
and don’t take any responsibility for their actions.

And plenty of folks in mental institutions never leared how to emote,
or speak their truths through the voice of mental health.

To wit: that doesn’t just go for the workers in those social environments.

You all know about the rampage of school shootings these days.
We aren’t going to reduce violence by adding more bullets on the streets.

Remember that those hardest to love are the ones that need it the most.

And you are not going to be able to give love to the tough ones if you
put your nose to the grindstone,
and forget to make yourself a priority to love yourself.

Otherwise, you’ll just burnout and develop compassion fatigue.

Rather, you’ll actually strenthen their resentments, and build
their impetus to retailiate against you, instead of be more more likely
to see where you are coming from.

Just look at the way President Trump,
and plenty of faux news pundits do that in everyday current events.

A lot of people that are Trumpites, follow him because of their
hatred of Hillary Clinton, and the Politically Correct movement.

Or they saw him as the lesser of two evils, and felt like a muzzle was
taken off their mouths because he says things that you felt,
but weren’t supposed to say.

Just like that opposite side of the same coin thought when they took
down Nixon during Watergate.

Real systemic change must come from the inside out.

The times we are living in, like back in the 60s, shows us
that the stars are aligning in a way that we can
cocreate systemic transformation.

But to do that, we need to align with the
Universal pillars of Love and Truth

That doesn’t happen when you hate the guy next door
because you don’t like his politics or the way she looks.

See you at the next trail junction,

The Winter Solstice arrives on December 21st,
signaling the darkest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere

A Full Cold Moon follows in its wake on the day after that.

Spirits can run high and naturally crouch low this time of year . . .

Might as well allow these tension of opposites
flow in your being without getting too swayed in either direction.

Another astrological eclipse season is coming shortly after
the birth of the Gregorian New Year in early January.

The Chinese New Year of the Pig rolls in on February 5, 2019

More winds of change are in the air

Do you see the parallels between President Hoover
and the stock market crash of 1929 and today’s plummeting capital?

Consider these changing tides a newer redistribution
of wealth and financial appreciation for the many!

What about the parallels between President Nixon,
Watergate and President Trump and “Russiangate?”

Underneath these time traveling synchronicities is
a growing remember when tune to “power to the people”

The darkness of feminine energies is rising,
as is further movement into a new Aquarian Age Consciousness.

As always, picture peaceful, calming thoughts,
and be gentle on yourself.

At the same time, do what you can to make the world a better place.
But remember to do so with love in your heart.

If you find yourself being seduced by hate,
be mindful to exhale this dead energy,
and let it go to so that it can transform into the light of the Universe.

In this dark time of year, think about the resurrection of the light

He rises everyday day till Spring arrives on the Vernal Equinox in March,
and then the sunlight grows stronger every day after that
until He peaks on the Summer Solstice in June

I heard someone say recently that the holidays are whatever you make of them.
Isn’t that true about everyday life?

In America, we are moving further into the season know as the holidays.
This time of year serves up mixed feelings for our culture,
which reflects the sign of the tumultuous times
we are living in on the planet at large.

And there are is a deeper and higher multidimensional Universe at play,
a vibration we have always been a part of – a reality more of us are waking up to.

More people are opening their eyes to the sacred ways of Nature,
yet others are walking around with eyes wide shut.
Still, others are losing their minds, checking out,
killing themselves or killing others.

In the pain and suffering, there is great tragedy

We in the modern Western world have been conditioned to destroy.
Just look at the medical model, and the Military-Industrial Complex.

But awakening to our “better angels”,
allows us to use our shadow sides as spirit guides to move through the darkness
so that we can move through the gateways of transformation.

This is a guiding light

You might think to yourself that “getting older sucks”,
and be seduced by the temptation to glorify youth culture,
and look on the good old days through the lens of nostalgia.

We are like the seasons, and we go through changes accordingly.
As such, Old Man Winter has shown himself by bringing us snow.

We have officially crossed the mid-point between the Autumn equinox,
and are moving closer to the darkest day of the year on the Winter solstice.

But that gives us an opportunity to look forward to our days getting a little longer,
and filling our hearts with a little more light everyday until the Vernal equinox in March,
when light and dark energies will be equal again.

Or maybe you’re hard on yourself about your transgressions,
or about how you’ve hurt others. With the holidays coming,
a Full Moon on its way, and Mercury in retrograde, the temptation to focus
on getting depressed about the past or anxious about the future grows.

But if you consciously meditate on the spiritual energy of Turkey,
then you can awaken your spiritual eyes to see abundance all around you,
and stuff yourself with an attitude of gratitude in your heart for the shared blessings that exist today,
and everyday really. And if you find your energy field depleted or consumed
by the energy of others, you can picture a turkey to help you ward of those negative energies.

Stay grounded, and connect to the roots of the Earth.
Drink lots of water, eat whole foots, and exercise in a way that you “don’t sweat the small stuff.”
Be gentle on yourself, look for the silver lining, and make positive interpretations.
Leave it to a Full Beaver Moon to give you the industry you need to design
new internal structures inside yourself to give you the
spiritual power you need to rise up to the challenges that you face.

Beaver can help you find alternative pathways that you might not have even known were there.
Then, if you notice a new way of doing something, give that more of your attention.
Novelty is good, but repetition can be a good thing too.

Old habits may die-hard.

But new ways of doing things are ready to spring forth!

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.

A Full Hunter Moon arrives on October 24th,
and then comes the traditional Samhain on Halloween

These events, along with this time of year,
and the energy of Bat awakens
a symbolic metaphorical death of the old self.

Do you see the veils thinning between
the spirit realm and our material world?

The line between realms is less concrete right now –
Giving us a clearer remembering that
even in death, there is also rebirth.

Our past lives are meant to awaken our soul’s evolution,
and help us expand beyond what we were.
Bat guides us through the dark night of the
soul so that we can hear the
spiritual callback of metamorphosis,
and who we are becoming.

Our ancestors celebrated the Samhain —
the approximate halfway point between the
Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

When ancient Romans bobbed for apples,
they believed that the first person to successfully retrieve an apple,
would be the first to marry in the new year.

One way to look at letting go of old selves, masks,
and ways of being would be to
divorce yourself from the ways that no longer
serve you in your consciousness.

Look beyond your habituated mind . . .

What is underneath your robotic doings of
your everyday routine?

Is there something new that
your soul would like to express?

In much the same way as Rome wasn’t built-in a day,
A New Earth doesn’t happen overnight either.
As we head further into waning light, and darker days,
we have an opportunity to turn yin-ward,
and plant the seeds into our souls that we
want to see come out into the sunlight in spring.

A new marriage happens between masculine and feminine
energies around the Vernal Equinox in March.

But before that, we will start to coax back
the light after the darkest
day of the year on the Winter Solstice.

Remember the mantra that energy is energy . . .
It’s what you do with it that counts.
It is perfectly natural to feel more tired,
experience darker emotions, need more rest,
journal more, have more active lucid dreams at night,
and be revisited by the ghosts of yesteryear,
and maybe even past regrets.

But don’t get stuck in beating yourself up about it.
Remember to be gentle on yourself.
Being hard on yourself might feed your ego,
but it only hurts your soul.

Is there a spirit of a new way of being with yourself
that wants to come alive in your consciousness?

When we make a conscious choice to come down into our souls,
and dig into the hidden nooks and crannies, then
it is possible to look upon whatever it is that you see
with a heartfelt, gentle gaze of compassion.
It is possible to learn to love
all aspects of yourself, even if it seems daunting.

Some people think you have to kill your ego, or even bury a lifetime
to release your demons. But that isn’t really the case.

The ghosts of the habituated mind
can illuminate a new way of living with awareness

Look in the mirror of your mind,
call on the spirits of the season,
and use the energies of this time of year
to let go of your old selves, masks, and past ways of being that you
want to release, and send them out into the Universe.

The spirited seasonal Harvest is in, and the Moon is Full today.
Last Saturday, we were blessed by the annual Autumn Equinox . . .

When I think of movements like Me Too,
I think about the Tao bringing in feminine waters to
levy a patriarchical world order that has blinded our
planet with too much sunlight.

Movement through Nature’s portal reflects
balance between masculine and feminine energies

These energies are flowing through us, on the inner/outer realms
of our individual and collective consciousness.

Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere will see the light rising
until it peaks on their Summer Solstice in December.
It is their Vernal Equinox there.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere,
we embark on the voyage into waning light and darker nights,
till the Winter Solstice brings us the darkest day of the year.

And then we will coax back the light

At this time of year, I like to meditate on balance,
and spiritual alignment with the spirit of the season . . .

I envision a Nature’s greeting card that celebrates
the male and female of every soul living in harmony
with the totality of our humanity!

Whether you identify as LGBTQ, or otherwise . . .

It is a natural window of opportunity to fall in love with
the sensuality of Mother Earth, and all
Her forms of Diversity in Unity . . .

Black Lives Matter, just as all Life matters in Spirit!

Perhaps it is challenging for you to have empathy in your heart for
the truth that Agent Orange matters too.

Yeah, he has a hard time not being enveloped by his narcissism.

But that’s just how a con artist cons himself into
getting tangled up in the bluesy behavioral trap of his own facade!

That’s why you see him reacting defensively
to the systemic reflection of his own misogynist ways.

The clown shows us the circus.

Even if the manufactured creation of the haves and have-nots
is a glaringly obvious power imbalance . . .

We see that people are losing their minds because the better devil
they know is being exposed by the light of consciousness.

Don’t buy into the fear that says
you should choose the lesser of two evils!

The only way to relax hate is through the power of Love . . .

You can’t hide in the dark as easily as you once could.

Your position of power and privilege
does not guarantee that you are untouchable,
like a “made guy” in the organized criminal underground of the mafia.

Do you really want to live in the reptilian ghettos of the mind,
being obsessed with order and control,
and always looking over your shoulder,
wondering if you’re going to get whacked by the end days?

The truth is that pain is a sobering fact of life.

But resisting that truth is more painful than
surrendering to the freedom to choose
to build our resilience toward tolerance, acceptance,
and even embrace the bitters that spring up in our daily steps.

Till we tweet together again peeps,

Ari
