With Turkey Vulture, we are guided into a new world of purification and rebirth
We are moving into darker days, as reflected in our inner and outer worlds

Spread your wings like an angel to lift your energy field
to see above the treeline and see a silver lining

Let your fiery passions be quenched by the waters of compassionate patience

Many folks are grieving Turtle’s pace of social change,
while feeling that they are swimming against
a current that feels against progress

We want a better world than the hellish nightmare we hold in
our minds and hearts

A New World where our colorful diversity is celebrated
in the love and light of unity

It is true we did not start the fire
But as Rome burns, let us tune in to the key of inner peace

Our living planet needs to access more inner peace today

Let our population lighten up to the possibility of terrestrial,
foreign-born, alien brothers and sisters coexisting in harmony

But you can become part of the solution by relaxing your worries,
and replacing them with positive self talk

Now you might demonize various targets that you
perceive are surrounded by minions

Perhaps you might view darker forces that you view as the cause of
the malaise of our modern world

But empathy in action sees the pain beneath the veil of furrowed brows
Just as wise indigenous shamans saw beyond the smokescreen of
justified colonialism

Conservative forces naturally want to anchor,
and reign in our world’s changing tides

Try to remember that the overwhelming majority is working toward a common
goal of co-creating a better world for our planet and all sentient beings

People are working hard enough in the day-to-day grind

Just shift the way you look at the world around you
through a perspective of self-love

See you further on up the trails,

Thank you to all of you who have supported the energy of this blog.

It has been a process, and I could not have done it without
your encouragement and co-creation.

In fact, this forum has inspired the recent publication of my first book,
accompanied by my Aunt Barbara’s beautiful animal pictures.

And I would like to thank my wife Kristen, for her Earth. I deeply appreciate her grounding force in my life!

For more information on the arrival of my book, Something to Chew On . . . , here are the links to access a copy if you feel so moved:

As such, I have chosen to take a break from this week’s posting to
allow us to sit with and celebrate the arrival of this walking meditation.

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you up the trail head next week with new material,

Coyote is a master trickster
Notorious for finding shortcuts along the trails of Life

Sometimes it makes sense to take the scenic route
Even when a quicker alternative path may appear

Like when you stop and smell the roses . . .

And a scent stimulates an adventure down memory lane
Suddenly you are revisited by an old relationship that had escaped
the safety net of your conscious mind

But there is healing when we find forgiveness for our trespasses
Especially when shortcuts unexpectedly take you off the beaten path
Leading you into unexplored mysterious places inside of yourself

What roles have you played in past relationships?

How do your trigger points from your past experiences
inform who you are becoming today?

Is your inner world governed by outer-directed emotional reactions?

Releasing judgments is good for the soul . . .

Try to have a gentle, invisible touch
When regarding either your own or someone else’s
personal blunders in relationship

Look back at the corners you have cut for a moment . . .
What do you have to learn about yourself in those close encounters?

Remember that unwelcome situations that were initially judged as foolish . . .

Perhaps later will be seen as surprise gifts
Merely wrapped up in brilliant disguises

Try to see the wisdom in your follies
The tricks are here to teach you something about yourself

Perhaps it has been a folly of yours to avoid opening your heart
to deeper heartfelt connections

But it would be wise to recognize how your own intimacy issues
have blocked the arteries that pump life into making heart-centered connections –
in spite of any undesirable qualities of another person

May Coyote guide you to see beyond the security of your old boarders and edges

See you further on up the trails,

Black Panther guides us into a spirited realm where black matter lives beautifully

In this darkness, our souls embark on an adventure of heroic proportions
A resurrection of heartfelt looks at our relationships
Is awaiting planetary discovery

Tune in to a darker space of depth – where we raise our fists
To heed a powerful soulful call to light up the world

And ladies and gentlemen . . .
This mad world really needs to lighten up with love, light and laughter

We know in our heart of hearts –
The Empire is making our world sick with its dirty energies
While continuing to vote to allow more and more folks to fall through the cracks
People are falling down everywhere during these hard times

It is time for a cease-fire on genocide once and for all
Visualize an end to institutionalized discrimination

Or whatever real idea that you have about yourself that feels
a sense of persecution and victimization

Just let it go and free yourself from the bondage

Abundance is a real possibility for our world

It is true that membership has its privileges
But all we are asserting is a fair shot at equal access
Otherwise, we are all faced with arrested development

But how do we get to the light without traversing the dark?

A key dynamic to living in a New Earth is having the courage
To face our dark sides . . .

Black Panther awakens fiery feminine powers of passionate sensuality
How do you feel when you touch the energy field of another?

Sometimes, a closer look at the holding onto of a particular thought –
Reveals a deeper insight into your emotional and behavioral reality

Meditation on Black Panther allows us to flex our holistic muscles at will –
Pouncing on, catching and releasing any old boxed in mind-sets we want to retire

Dragonfly breathes magic and color
Into the ordinary doings of everyday life

A long time ago . . .
Dragon had the King Midas touch of always going straight for the gold
But a wise guy called Coyote tricked Dragon by feeding him a slice of humble pie

Do you need a change in habit?

What good are your lucky charms
If you get consumed by your own facade?

Let go of the shores and surrender to Life’s oceanic bounty

Are you holding yourself back with beliefs that no longer serve you?

Lighten up by picturing a dragonfly orbiting
within your infinite inner space . . .

Ask for directional guidance to see through illusionary smokescreens –
Illuminating transformational pathways

Have you followed through with your action plan to make a change?

See you further on up the trails,

A New Moon Dawns on Bear this week
Awakening anew a feminine right brain New World

Reach out and cosmically touch someone by hugging soul sister equality
Let us embrace Her power into our politics of living

May we fine tune our mystical vibrations to a celestial D sharp
Let us raise our fists in the spirit of dark yin soul power
Because the energy of this world is too flat without colorful energetic diversity

Introspection looks at intensifying shadowy emotions
That may have been hibernating deep inside your Being
Perhaps deeper feelings have eclipsed our collective consciousness

Simmering issues regarding race and class
Never really went away
They only went into hiding behind a smokescreen of
Political correctness and moderate legal reforms
Playing out in the form of miserly reactive “life support systems”

Race and class consciousness are heating up again right now
After simmering in a soulful slow cooking cauldron

Greece is the new David
Standing Her ground while standing up to a Goliath of an Empire

Economic Hit Men are like rabid wolves on Wall Street
With insatiable appetites for eating too much

But still the truth tastes sweet like honey
And so it shall set you free

See yourself as part of the solution,
Rather than part of the problem

Let the energy of Bear guide you into an infinite realm of alternative solutions
That abound in the Dreamtime

The time is now to weave sustainable equanimity into our waking reality

We all need to cultivate compassion and empathy
And learn how to sustain heartfelt connections with one another

Sometimes we need to adjust our edgy latitudes
To carry out our good intentions
May we allow gentle waters to smooth out rocky edges

Tragedy and pain are unwelcome aspects of Life
Know the security of change and trust in the healing process

“That’s just the way we’ve always done it”
Is like heading bow first into a perfect storm

In these changing times
Relaxation into a New World will come about
When we hoist our sails into peaceful inner waters

See you further on up the trails,

A Full Buck Moon wanes from last week
Light has crossed over its peak

Times are changing . . .
We need to adapt to these happenings

Fox illuminates the darkness of feminine energy
We can learn to adapt our energy fields to adjust to communal frequency

Let the energy of Fox help you sniff out the
Scent of discrimination and discernment in relationship

You will know when it is time to become invisible

Fade into the backdrop

Mutable Fox blends our auras into neighboring borders and edges
Her energy is cunning with silent observation

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
