A Full Moon arrives in our consciousness today.
As always, Father Sky reveals orderly cycles in the heavens,
in much the same way as Mother Earth does with seasons down here on Earth.
But like the seasons, we are not without
changing latitudes and attitudes.
Like when a Deer begins to rut this time of year . . .
Or whether or not a manic stock market appreciates
how many points a buck has or the alchemy behind the
nightmare that we see playing out on the surface of the planet.
Even with the advanced intellect behind algorithms and
fancy nanotechnological advances:
You can’t forget about human rights, and the general welfare of all sentient beings.
But you already know not to demonize demons.
Remember that Deer symbolizes the spiritual power to dissolve the monster of fear.
This happens via a strong gentle gaze that awakens
the mythical quest that invites us to connect with Great Spirit.
The sacred union of Snake reflects transformation.
We are all vulnerable to the poisionous toxins in our world.
But remember that in the venom, there is a healing tonic.
Even if you have fallen off the wagon wheel, you
can still get back the eye the tiger with the magic of Crow.
Try not to become seduced by your fears – regardless of how real
you believe them to be, or proof or evidence you have to back them up
and make convincing arguments accordingly.
Heaven and Earth are meant to be in a collaborative relationship.
They are competing together for mutual-aid, rather than against one another.
You can’t have the yang of brotherly order,
without the yin of sisterly chaos.
Nature’s theater of cosmic sibling rivalry is shown
on the screen of a silver lining.
When I think about our ancestors that named this Full Moon after a male deer,
I can appreciate the point that predators and prey, like the yin and the yang
show us the cycle of life.
We humans did not weave the web of life –
we are strands in the web, and our actions have a ripple effect on
the multidimensionality of our experiences.
Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it,
and drink it in your meditative tonic of healthy choice.
Is it a coincidence that our planet has been attracting more attention
from other dimensions since the splitting of the atom, and then the
decision to weaponize this technology?
The reason history tends to repeat itself is due to
the density of the habituated mind.
Destiny only exists when we are unconscious of it.
Isn’t it nice to wake up to a mindful awareness?
Traditions might be time-tested, but not without novelty
and creative outlets.
But if we can learn from the sweet and satisfying souldful dance step
of Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon, then we can deepen
our understanding of balancing ritual with sacred meaning.
Otherwise, we just become ensconced in our robotic doings.
We all need a sense of safety and security.
But not at the expense of sacrificing freedom and liberty.
Getting swayed too far in either direction leads to a chemical imbalance
and hard times on the self.
Be gentle on yourselves peeps.
Till we tweet again,
