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

When I picture Crow, I notice magic and mystery unveiled in everyday life . . .

Ordinary moments that typically appear as mundane, boring or dull
are revealed as extraordinary with opening spiritual eyes . . .

And when contemplating Mercury in Retrograde, fake news,
and general feelings of living in the Twilight Zone . . .

It seems like it is getting harder to discern fact from fiction,
what’s real, and what’s fantasy

We all have to find balance between our heads and hearts
Probably a good time to relax into our intuitive side right now for clarity . . .

Otherwise, trying to find truth through logic
and rational thought processes might drive you nuts

Like the recent tax cut proposals, movement to impeach Trump,
and the powers that be pounding war drums to distract us
from what’s really going on behind the scenes

I think of Lao Tzu when he spoke of the boasting of thieves after a looting . . .

Where did the saying come from that says power corrupts
but absolute power corrupts absolutely?

Does this belief stem from a projection by those who have
never experienced the dimension of
standing in an authentic position of personal authority?

Yeah, darker days might be getting you down . . .

But if you can look at the bright side, remember that we will start
coaxing back the light after the Winter Solstice on December 21

Owl peers into dark nights with the light of empathic vision . . .

What mysteries will Owl shed light on as we move toward
the darkest day on Earth upon the arrival of the Winter Solstice in December?

Death of old selves, and old ways are waning like nature’s light

It’s hard to say good-bye to those aspects of ourselves, or
our loved ones that have passed, along with the ghosts of yesteryear

When the rains are pouring, and you feel lost and alone . . .
Remember a rainbow’s arrival reflects color back onto your soul

On the global-political front, what secrets will be revealed
about historically buried information regarding JFK’s assassination?

Does any of this news sound foreign, alien or out of this world?
But then again, aren’t we trying on new masks during new normal shape-shifting?

Like in a family affected by mental illness and addiction . . .
The metaphorical Elephant in the Room is partially exposed by President Trump

Does he really want to relax the secretive governance
of the Military-Industrial Complex?

Or are his motivations to expose Establishment suppressions
merely a platform to inflate his already bloated narcissism?

What does in the name of National Security really mean?

Is not the spirit of America’s political roots of We The People
a challenge to protecting the status quo of the minority of the opulent?

Just because you’ve made it to the top, doesn’t mean you forget
who helped bring you to the perch of your solid goal position!

Equal access information is perceived as a threat by the powers that be
that deliver informational food for mass consumption

A seductive mind-set that believes people are inherently bad,
and need to be controlled could stand to remember approaching situations
with openness, trust and an authentically heartfelt solution-focused perspectives!

In this space, apocalyptic, doomsday self-fulfilling prophecies
are easily target marketed into becoming accurate predictions

Till next time along the trails,

A New Moon arrives tomorrow
Reflecting new opportunities and beginnings

Bat’s energetic footprint is symbolic of metamorphosis and change
Colorful Autumn leaves are fading, falling and dying

A metaphorical death of the old self
Hangs on by a thread like the ways of a dying old world

Bat and New Moon hint at the rebirthing process
cross-pollinating the fruits of an Aquarian Age

Meditation on Rome, reveals Trump is like megalomania emperors of an old age
But the Eternal City wasn’t built in a day

Like overthrown dictators of past lives, his time is going to come

Out on the streets, civil disobedience inspires a rising tide
of waves of change that will inundate even the Buddha and Christ
from deeper and higher dimensions

Time to surrender to the will of the Universe
and let go of the pyramid and elitist rule by the few

Moving further into our mysterious feminine sides
awakens the power of water

Flow with the gentle, gradual and softness of yin’s momentum
Tis the season to turn our clocks back yinward

Use the energies of the New Moon and Bat
to release your old self that no longer serves you
and see yourself transforming into who you want to become

Till we meet again along the trails,

Ari
