Turtles have been living on this planet longer than dinosaurs
Humans have been living on Earth less than that

And yet many of us are living like dinosaurs, caught up in a karmic loop
of the reptilian mind – obsessed with order and control issues

A perpetual state of fear is the psychological reality for many
the glass is seen as half empty, which creates anxieties about the fear of loss

But Turtle’s shells reflect safety, security and protection

It’s always good to slow down and return to the mindfulness of our breath

With a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and Lunar New Year arriving this week
Stirrings of Spring energies are waking up underground

Can you feel their movement into new beginnings and foreshadowing
of above ground changes in the air, like a fading stock exchange
and military-industrial complex?

We are all children of God, even Donald Trump
The time is now to purge and release our ideas of separation

Us and Them kind of thinking is devolution
Demonizing our demons will not bring us to the Light

Why are there movements to impeach Donald Trump,
hold power abusers accountable, create a more equitable economic system,
nurture minority/woman’s rights, and
provide safety nets like universal health care?

Will Trump quit before he gets impeached, then live out the rest of his life
pontificating about being persecuted, and ensconced in seeing himself as a victim?

Why is there such push back to justify going to war against perceived enemies,
under the guise of national security?

It is because oppression needs to have a privileged few on top,
and an overwhelming majority on the bottom to feed the machine

But we are all in this together . . .

Human beings are complex creatures, and our relationships
are greater than the sum of our parts

Look upon one another as mirrors to help us reflect the light of love and truth

Remember that it takes less energy to love than to hate

It has been said that Dog is “man’s best friend” . . .

In this Chinese New Year of the Dog, meditation on Dog can inspire
a deep compassion for our human shortcomings,
and loyalty to our one human family

Bear Medicine represents introspection
Shy unless provoked – gentle giants are they

Meditation on Bear reminds us of the wisdom that
Truth is sweet like honey
Setting us free

Do you need to venture deep within yourself and
draw on your instinctive powers or other natural resources?

Our inner lights are fading yin-ward into the shades of waning Full Moon
Standing in the space of knowing is a marketing free zone
When we enter the center of a circle, there is nobody to convince or sway

Are your judgments off-center?

Do you remember when the stock exchange crashed
and the wealthiest Americans began paying around a 90% tax rate?

Meditation on the Taoist idea of investing in loss reveals
A Bear market knows the time is now to let our
Bullish and expansive material emphasis go into hibernation
We venture closer to the dark night of Winter Solstice

Now is the time to let our greed and arrogance rest in peace

There is a natural impetus to come back down to earth right now
in our relationships with one another, her creatures and our planet.

A more sustainable and equitable way to live wants to express itself

The more the empire tightens its controlling grip
the more unwanted disorder falls through its cracks
and the more painful this process will be

We set our souls free from feeling trapped in our physical bodies
By knowing we are all created in the image of Creator

We bear witness to the death of the illusion of the material reality
Entanglement with form relaxes by
letting go of our sense of expectation and outcome

Do you need to withdraw from the ways of the world for a spell?
Or do you need to come out of your cave and be more social?

We become pregnant with ideas during dimming lights
Dreaming of planted seeds growing in the underground basement of our souls

Spring Equinox on horizon signifies
a rebirth with arrival of budding Spring Eclipse Season
Cubs want to come out and play

All we need is patience to think before we speak
Being open-heartedly inquisitive in our politics of living
Cultivates plasticity of the mind
Revolutionary zeal without the hate
Loving ourselves is loving our planet

Are you using your helping abilities properly?

Prayer is an active, yang-masculine way of stating our intention for
manifesting and expanding – like sending a message out to the Universe.
Meditation is a receptive, yin-feminine state for
contracting and welcoming messages from our
subconscious and unconscious faculties.

We are all an embodiment of masculine and feminine energies
designed for walking with one foot in spirit and one foot in ground

Edgy dark magicians are only able to pull the wool over
us as long as we buy into the hellish nightmare that we are separate from God

But Christ was an embodiment that shed light on a way and truth
reflecting the Kingdom of Heaven as an intrinsic state of Being
Happiness will not come about by the objects of our affection

Do you believe in your capacity to quiet your mind and
receive solution-focused messages from that stillness?
Can you hear your inner voice speaking to you through the sound of silence?

Our treatment of bears mirrors how serious we are about
the preservation of our environment and natural resources
Reminding us of the possibility that bears, humans
and all God’s creatures can live together in harmony

After this latest American election cycle – beyond the cheers and jeers
of preferred or unwanted outcome
Are you seeing the good deep within all situations?

See you further on up the trails,

We stand in the courts wit the clowns
A Coyote sits on the outskirts of town
Farmers dry soil yielded a shortage of crops
But resilient cannabis got some peeps busted by the cops
Doctors swooped in with legal Eagles from the State
Serving subscriptions of prescriptions done changed our fate
And those IRS Feds still squander my tax rate

We stand on the doorstep of an Aquarian Age
Nanosecond transactions got the market in a manic rage
Alien technology drains water and jobs
Corporate media floods our teles with opportunistic commercial mobs
Mental health experts called in to assess intra-psychic states
Serving opinions of self fulfilled fate
And in spite of our differences honey, I’m glad you’re my mate

Changing tides across fruited plains
Got pundits reptilian grins bickering bout climate change
Inflated taxes and budget cuts got folks in a rage
But sharing our resources means our survival in a New Age
FEMA came to town to clean up a chaotic state
But survivalist paranoia is stuck in its hate
And those IRS Feds still squander my tax rate

Big Brother is here to preserve our Republic
Power to the People is a mantra to the public
Meditation is key to sit with what is
Reflection of Self is our spiritual biz
Picture a waterfall to clear your mind
Clean self-care ritual to help you unwind
And in spite of our differences honey, I’m glad you’re my mate
