Posts Tagged ‘Violence’

If you don’t pay attention to the details,
and you buy into the better the devil you know way of living . . .

Then it will be impossible to see the change you want in the world,
and you will probably have a hard time not getting lost in its madness

But it is true that our world has ripened more than
any other season for purification

Fall is here, leaves are changing,
and Nature’s cycle of death is in the air

A Full Harvest Moon shines on the skies on Thursday . . .

Sadly, another mass shooting tragically took place in Las Vegas earlier in the week,
and iconic rocker Tom Petty died unexpectedly

These tragic events bring our feelings of grief and loss to the surface,
as does the natural movement yinward during this time of year

Chaos also awakens our fears, and sobers us up to our vulnerability

Beneath the headlines, what does the location of this latest
calculated and methodical act of violence
have to say to us about the times we are living in?

Let us not forget the metaphor of people not knowing how to emote . . .

Can we feel empathy for their sense of not fitting in,
belonging, or rage against the rising tide of the
Military-Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower warned us against?

Are we really shocked that people are finding more heated ways
to ignite the tinder-boxed system into leveling itself –
even if their desired outcome is disruptive, disrespectful,
and without regard for consequence?

Of course, violence begets more violence – which is why the ends
justifying the means kind of thinking has never been a sustainable solution

It’s kind of like taking your own life, or the life of another

In this space, your soul is in a dark place,
and becomes even more lost in an
even darker place after following this path

People who have been brainwashed to believe in the
savior complex of Martyrdom are carrying a heavy cross

The truth is you have to lay it down,
and surrender to the Divine Will of the Universe to truly be free

It makes too much sense to do it more gracefully,
peacefully, and non-violently

We need a more equitable global marketplace that invests in the human factor,
our planet, and the other creatures that live with Her

And the so-called “by any means necessary” mantra of facsism on the
right and left political extremes

Forgets the details of remembering to breathe in
the clean, fresh air of inner peace . . .

See you up the trails,

Can you hear the tweets from our Chickadee peeps in the trees?

Their higher wisdom reminds us that harmony can exist –
If we just remember to breathe . . .

But you can’t do that if you are attached to your position
and listening to the voice in your head, instead of
hearing the heart-mind another

How often do you hear the cheerful expression of truth
in the old world today?

The black truth is that mental illness runs rampant across our planet today
Addictions to dirty energies accompanies this insanity

We have a bloated President,
Towered by an inflated Military-Industrial Complex

New Waves of Divine Love, Light and Truth are trying to enter into
our mind-body-spirits to help us purify our souls development

They want to awaken an authentic healing wellness that resonates in our Being

Our consciousness must transform, and branch out into
greener pastures that grows roots into seven generations ahead

The higher consciousness of Chickadee reminds us that
the truth does not need to hurt but can be sung with a gentle and soft melody

You know we are living in dangerous times, where
galactic violence is accelerating . . .

Many people and Nation States are pounding their chests aggressively –
There is too much posturing, barking, nagging , and machismo military might

It reminds me of a toddler that did not want to share, or was angry
about an age-appropriate limit being set by someone older and wiser

Re-examine everything you have been taught to believe about your
relationship with yourself, and your relationship to the world around you

Look at how you have been conditioned to buy into the belief that
there are winners and there are losers, that people get what they deserve.
And then explore the opposite side of that coin

Meditate on the mantra, “Nothing is as it seems . . . Nor is it the opposite”
But please do so in your heart with  a sweet singing earworm of Chickadee

See you up the trails,

Chickadees speak the truth in ways that are gentle and soft . . .
Their energy can help you authentically speak your truth without passive aggression
or other subtle acts of violence

And they can also help you become mindful of your communicative delivery

Some say that the truth hurts
But it doesn’t have to be that be that way!

Perhaps you are pondering whether or not to vote
for the Donald or Hillary in this upcoming American political election

Remember when Hitler perceived America as
having a greater harness on propaganda than Nazi Germany?

Has a big corporation like IBM followed through with reparations from
a genocidal arrangement against primarily Jews to target and dehumanize
the rising tide of right-wing scapegoats today?

And what about all the “right-sizing” big business does to justify laser-like precision
in cutting costs by outsourcing workers to justify cheap labor somewhere else?

Regardless of outcome, it is wise to prepare for the strong possibility that a bigoted
man of silver spoon white privilege will become president yet again . . .

Or arguably even more likely, we will have our first woman take office
Like her or not, that is progress here in America
where still most of our politicians and presidents are old, white men

Synchronizing with a passing new moon,
we need to talk about and entertain new
possibilities in our collective consciousness

Economic strangulation and domestic violence –
primarily against woman, black folks, people of color
and the poor and oppressed needs to stop!

Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors
“If you see something, say something”

Let go of your fears that a half white black person, woman president,
or an honest candidate like Bernie Sanders can’t win or will be killed if elected

Picture the authentic will of the people’s appreciation over the interest of big money

Remember to stand in your own personal authority!

The black caps of chickadee symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking
There is such primordial power in blackness

Imagine ourselves as a diversified and unified portfolio –
Sharing equal slices of humble pie . . .

We are divergent expressions of Great Spirit

When we look through a lens of equality,
we honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity

In today’s overemphasis on a marketed-sex driven world-view . . .

Human sexuality is as complex as it ever was
But it is a systemic and holistic issue that is symbolic
of our modern world’s libido-centric malaise

Intimacy is a personal issue that projects itself outward
And so it is that masculine-yang desires to express itself
in the rising sunlight of the Northern hemisphere

Just because you are not in the mood to make love
does not mean that you will not enjoy the fruits of your labor

Consider allowing yourself the viewpoint that it would be
healthy to see your follow through in this area to be a private victory
rather than a personal-relational duty and sacrifice

Woodpecker’s drumming awakens visions of Mother Earth’s
changing heartbeat, energetic pulsing and weather forecast

And yet Friday’s Pink Full Moon remembers our shared blessing of Buddha’s Light
that paved the way for Christ’s Love

Love, Light and Laughter are good medicine ladies and gentlemen

Woodpecker’s spirited teachings help us drill into deeper
soulful exploration in other realms, dimensions, new vistas and novel experiences

A New Age of Aquarius is getting closer . . .

You can go your own way by marching to the beat of your own drum

Stillness speaks to us in a way that lights up our right brains
Here we transform into Homo Luminosity
Literally walking in a Heaven we can see during our Earthwalk

Wake up expecting synchronicity and yet paradoxically let go of expectations . . .

Step up to inner peace by walking in the present moment and
accepting the Now for what it is

Sometimes, you have to face your fears head on and then realize that it is
really more frightening to avoid our fears than it is to lean into them

It’s been three years since the tragic terrors in Boston
exploded in our consciousness . . .

But there have been many terrorist acts there and elsewhere,
before the city was known as Beantown

We should learn from our experiences with fear and acting out violently that
these old dramas only recycle wasted energy and subsequently stagnate growth

But then again, it is Spring and Yang is expressive in His outward growth
May we redefine masculinity by softening Him with a gentle, yet powerful
showering of a feminine Yin energetic cleansing

Let us remember Prince’s inner light was tall in stature
but not confuse his celebrity, ability to push the cultural envelope and talents
to sing and dance, nor applause culture as a true remedy for pain

Like all deaths, his passing gives us permission to grieve with sadness in our hearts

The arts, music and sports are really just games to be playfully experienced –
Regardless of outcome or who wins . . .

May we learn new ways of evolving into a more fair and just society
where empathy and compassion are our politics of Being . . .

May we hit the pause button when it comes to profit-driven over working
at the expense of the players and performing artists who entertain and distract us

There are no enemies . . .
Compete with your opponent but send them love to lighten up the match!

Till the next trail head junction,

Ari

I am looking forward to the forthcoming arrival of my first professionally published book, Something to Chew On: Digesting Healthy Spiritual Food for the Soul in the Calendar Year Ahead. I will keep you posted regarding when it will be released to the public. This book is a collaboration of my writing and my Aunt Barbara’s artwork. I have confident faith that it will be a helpful trail guide along the path of walking meditation.

Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors . . .

They are effective spirit guides to have during
the waning intensities of last week’s Full Moon
and offer a more cheerful passage through a passing Spring Eclipse Season

When crows and vultures descend . . .
These tiny birds stand undaunted in their own personal power

Chickadees are small in physical stature
But they are symbolic of our own boundless power of spirit

We all should have the right to express our voice without oppression . . .
Learned helplessness is harder to internalize in a more
socially just and fair global community

We are spiritual beings having human experiences
More of us are waking up to this reality
and there is power in our growing numbers and flowering consciousness . . .

Chickadees sing cheerful songs of Truth . . .
May their energy elevate a personal resurrection burning brighter light in our souls
through passionate expression of Christ Consciousness within and without

Their black caps symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking . . .

We are a diversified and unified portfolio here on Earth
Let us welcome abundance to the possibility of equal access to resources
Divergent expressions of Great Spirit is who we really are

Remember the conflict of duality is healed through
the lens of our upper chakras

When we look through a lens of equality
We honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity

Donald Trump is a reflection of a dirty rear view mirror
that our lower chakras reveal to us as informants

Don’t buy into marketed commercial that sells
the jingle that projects a white privileged-centric
“we’re going make America great again”

That’s just code for demonizing Muslims, Arabs, Immigrants, the poor, oppressed
and other outsiders that don’t fit the mold of the opulent minority

This Aquarian land was made for you and me!

On the surface, energies are intensifying . . .
Suicide bombs have gone off and innocent people are dying
There is tragedy in the air!

Time for the Billionaire class to pay their fair share
Instead of greedily concentrating more wealth
to those that already have more than enough

But on a deeper level, we are moving into blossoming new beginnings . . .

Nature is leveling the playing field

Violence is waking us up

Bernie Sanders is part of a movement in alignment with a
forthcoming Aquarian Age

Contrary to what the corporate media wants you to believe,
he is an electable candidate . . .

We can stop the violence of voting for the lesser of two evils
and against our own best interests . . .

Remember that change, like the seasons is a process . . .
It is more about an unfolding transition than a fixed time and space

May Chickadee elevate our spirits to rise above and get off the couch
Let us free ourselves from the mental slavery of business as usual politics

The time is now for new economies built on a foundations of authenticity and trust
Clean love and clean care is renewable energy for all to share

Please envision with me as smooth of a transition as possible into new times . . .

See you up the trails,

Ari

Skunk arouses our senses and helps in general with relationship discernment
Time to breathe in respect for personal boundaries and the energy fields of others

Are you speaking your truth when you are feeling threatened or annoyed?

We leave behind a New Moon last week . . .

A Full Beaver Moon gains momentum later on this month

Building fantasy into manifestation may spring from noble intentions . . .
But it is wise to question the application of that how might play out on the ground

Like Nature, our souls are moving further into the dark . . .
A dark night peaks on the Winter Solstice in about a month

Yes, we face much darkness in our world today . . .
The latest terrorist attack in France reflects that

But real change comes from digging deep enough to find inner peace –
in spite of the crisis we face in our often unsafe surroundings

Do you need to fortify your defenses to protect yourself?

Picture a skunk to help to strengthen your self-esteem
so that you can’t be easily intimidated or controlled by others

Meditation on Skunk helps us sniff out
when to attract and when to repel other energies

Their air of nonchalance neutralizes
the foul stink of victim and perpetrator toxicity

No need to demonize that aspect of yourself

Are you paying attention to your body language?

Remember there are no enemies, only reflections of
your shadow-side outer rims of your Divine constitution

Do you need to gain more attention without being arrogant or irritating?

Empower the people with the right incentives
so that they will tend to do the right thing

We need to shift our intention away from massive welfare going to the top 1% –
toward investment in spiritual capital that prioritizes
the needs of the overwhelming majority

Onward up the trails,

Ari

Now the seasonal times may be changing . . .

Still “Nature is the best physician”

Light and Dark energies are dancing again
with equal footing later on this week on the Spring Equinox

“We are all from the same supernova. From that place
there are no cultural differences. We are all the same light.”

Anyone at least vaguely familiar with the controversial 60’s era,
knows our world whirled rapidly and flipped its script –
Perceptual realities were turned upside down

I wasn’t even alive yet, but I remember

Today, shifting tides of Climate Change is intensifying in the air up there
And so below it is becoming abundantly clear
that clouds of dust are leaving behind their combustion

New winds of change are blowing in the wind

A quarter of a hundred millenia of a slumbering slow melt has passed
Or merely approximately a couple thousand years since a dying Pisces age
Springs forth a dawning Age of Aquarius

Looking back in the rearview mirror –
Reveals that we may need to let-go of last Winter’s storms

But eyes are opening up to the arrival of Spring
Equanimity in energetic Masculine and Feminine relationship

Equality in Yin and Yang energies will return next Autumn Equinox . . .
In the Bat of an eye

Meditation on Robin chimes in with songs of Spring by
whistling the spreading spirited seeds of new growth

Here in Northern New England, this might be a deafening call
to hear with all the snow still blanketing the ground.

Robin is here to reveal that something new is budding in
our flowering consciousness

Perhaps new creative processes are growing into our lives
or discovering a new aspects of Self that wants
to come out and dance in the sunlight

Here it is!
Look at the intentional intensity of the crocuses
Right about now

Energetically, Robin communicates to us that Spring is arriving and that our
Life Force is wanting to activate in our bodies and manifest into our outer world

With Robin, we sing songs of freedom
Defining our own egalitarian territory and blaze our own trails to follow

And with the increasing violence on our the planet today,
The time is Now to wake up to the responsibility that
“we are the ones we have been waiting for.”

Try looking at perfect strangers in the eye in the bowing spirit of “namaste”
Then we all win when we walk away feeling
a deeper connection with our human family

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
