Today as I was preparing to go for my almost daily bicycle ride, I stopped to glance over at one of our two rose bushes. They are planted in a small strip of ground between our living room window and the fence, and in previous years they have not been doing so well. Poor weather is usually the culprit here in the British Isles, but forgetting the rose food is also another factor. However, during the past 3-4 weeks, they have not only been producing a prodigious number of blooms, but they’ve grown over 6 feet in height!
As I gazed upon the unique orange blossoms, I thought that how easy it is to become inured to the beauty that is so close by somewhere. For a moment in time, all my personal thoughts faded into the background, and so did all the world’s tumultuous activity. Here it was just my consciousness taking in the beauty in front of me, and I became lost in a serenity that there are no words for.
Seems we take so much for granted these days, and most of us are so preoccupied that we just don’t really take in what is right at hand in our lives. It is one thing to look, it is quite another thing to actually see what it is we’re looking at. A mere thought about the to-do list, or a worry or three, and we are turning away from the miracle in front of us and exchanging it for another task, another obligation, and another round of problem solving. If you are an entrepreneur, most likely you live that experience 24/7, and barely come up for air. Marketing, tech hassles, virtual staff issues, grumpy clients…where does it end? When does the good life begin?
It can begin when we choose to slow down enough to take stock of ourselves, check and see if we’re occupying our body instead of hovering near it, and exercise our sovereignty diligently so we honor our own feelings and space to be as we are. Yes, I know…there are obligations a plenty. Working for a paycheck with a family to support during the upheavals of the past 17 months has been a grab bag of stress. Or perhaps you or someone you know has a health condition, or a psychological one. None of this we are experiencing is easy, and we can be so focused on survival mode that we overlook so much that there is to appreciate.
I have a very good book about spiritual seeking call “Doing Nothing” by Steven Harrison. It’s focus is on the modern quest for enlightenment and peace, but many of his perspectives could easily be applied to more mundane matters. The other book which I have not read, but recently ordered, is entitled “How to be Idle” by Tom Hodgkinson. The Puritan work ethic, or the work ethic imposed by a jealous God in the Old Testament (“…by the sweat of thy brow shall you earn your bread…”) set the human race on a high-stress path of exertion with a future promise of reward and comfort. The entire dogma of the Abrahamic religions is centered on a perfect hereafter, if we are all good boys and girls that is.
What is discouraged more today then ever before is that to be idle, or decide to withdraw from the Rat Race, is to be a reactionary. Someone who is anti-societal, and not to be trusted. For a raw example, read this recent article about loafing in China that appeared in the Guardian UK. In China it’s becoming a “thing” and they call it “lying flat”.
At this New Moon in Cancer take an inventory about your own life. Where do you over-commit? Where do you over-give? How do you cope with low grade anxiety or moments of high stress? Are you happy and peaceful, or anxious and fearful? Are you in your body, and loving your body, or not?
Here’s something to ponder - when there’s a lot of cortisol pumping through our bodies we are incapable of rational decision making. The cost for this is multi-dimensional too, and as Dr. Gabor Mate’s states, trauma or living with trauma is the single biggest cause for disease…period!
Your physical and psychic boundaries are yours to employ and maintain. No one else will do it for you. We are empowered, we are capable, and it is not selfish to be concerned with one’s own harmony and wellbeing. Slow down, breathe and look around. What do you see? There’s beauty within and without to appreciate. Remember it often.

Show Synopsis: On July 14th 1789 the starving and dispossessed citizenry of Paris, France rose up against the ruling class and feudal system. What followed over the next 4 years was a sincere effort to redress the grievances, but unfortunately a Committee for Public Safety was formed which instigated a Reign of Terror resulting in the arrest of 300,000 and over 25,000 deaths, including the king and queen.
Today we are immersed in an atmosphere of terror that is being orchestrated by a global committee for public safety - the medical establishment. The M. O. is fear. Asking questions is now discouraged, truths are being suppressed and censored, and individual liberties are being removed. If we are to grow beyond this moment and come out the other side, we will need to dig deep and call upon our courage. We can inspire many to actualize a new path for humanity. You and I are the Solution, and there are higher spiritual powers we can employ Time to recognize and claim that inner power. Through our courage and healing the Earth is renewed.

the State of the Planet Update
by Isaac George
May 14th, 2021
Back on September 11th, 2001 I was sleeping peacefully at my lover’s home in Eugene, Oregon. In a moment we were abruptly awakened by the phone ringing. She picked it up and her face turned to horror as a friend back in Virginia alerted us to the attacks on the World Trade Center complex in New York City. As she listened, he told her about the collapse of the South Tower as it happened before his eyes. In my head, I heard the words “It’s all a setup…do not lapse into fear.” We got up, showered quickly and dressed, and headed over to my house to watch thing unfold on my roommate’s big screen television.
Watching the constant reruns of the towers going down, hearing the chatter between reporters and cameramen and the hosts in various newsrooms, I could not shake the feeling that I was being brainwashed. After two hours, the numbness and shock set in, and we could not watch another moment. My senses were in overwhelm and I felt assaulted. I had to go out into Nature to regain my bearings. After much reflection and quiet, I restored my connection to my inner guidance and to that place in Universal Love that let me know that everything was okay.
Shortly afterwards I had to fly back to Virginia to conduct a mystery school workshop, and I was able to go to the airport, and fly on a mostly empty jet to the East Coast. Nothing got to me during that journey or the one back. The searches and pat downs, the automatic weapons being carried by guards in the airport…none of mattered to me. Of course, I did not believe the official story for one second and I knew that like the JFK event, this was an engineered act. After all, my inner voice confirmed that within seconds of my knowledge of 9/11 happening. I was saddened by the loss of life that day, and I knew that many more would lose their lives in the aftermath. I could not prevent any of what happened, nor what was to come. However, I also would not allow myself to be shifted from that solid ground of my own spirit.
In the middle of March of 2020, we all experienced a new 9/11, but one that would reverberate around the planet. After JFK, MLK, RFK, the Vietnam War (almost got sent over), Gulf War 1, 9/11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the shock of Brexit and Trump, and now Covid-19, it has been one step up of chaos fear each time. Now the ‘enemy’ is supposedly and invisible one. Well, that is metaphorically closer to the mark than most realize, but that is also a discussion for another time. Today, I wish to focus on what we can do, indeed must do, to mitigate this irrational blanket of fear and the division it fosters. We need to find and cultivate the reminders that this world is not a dangerous place, that we do have a choice in how we wish to feel about our lives, and we also have a choice to empower ourselves so that we do not succumb to the merchants of fear.
The first place to begin is the issue of trust. This is tied to self-empowerment in significant ways. Do you trust yourself? Do you trust in God-Goddess-Creator-Universe? Do you trust your own body and the divine intelligence within it? Do you trust Nature? Did you know that there is a world ‘out there’ that is unaffected by the headlines? Trust is the cornerstone. When I was channelling, AA Ariel use to bang on about faith. “Faith is the science of knowing. If you know you are safe, that you are loved, that you are more powerful and creative than your ego mind would have you believe, then you would joyfully live a life of risk. You would know that you are eternal, even if the body and personality is not. Know that and you are free.” She was not advocating blind faith, but a faith anchored in the realm of the Absolute. I like that, and always have.
Those who are in deep fear these days have forgotten these principles, these foundational truths. They trust the science they say, but science is an imperfect set of postulates and theories, most of which arose from a study of biology and chemistry based on a mechanistic perception of Nature. Nature is not a machine, but machine-based intellects will always see that and nothing more. Your body is living physical evidence of the holographic energetic signature of your soul and its extensive combined experiences with others and the Universe at large. We are “integral” with the fabric of Creation, not mere objects in space observing what is happening, or thinking it is all happening to us or because of us. It is both/and!
I recommend looking past the appearances of the current theatre of chaos and spend a bit of time with the beauty of your own being, the beauty in Nature, the wonder of the stars above (try to ignore those satellites) and look with awe at the tiniest of creatures that are out in your garden or the woods living and loving no matter what calamities seem to be unfolding in the human drama. I am not saying to ignore what has been happening, but to make a clear space away from it on a regular basis so that you might begin to trust Life, your life, and this entire experience we are living through. As improbable as this may sound, ultimately you and I chose to be here at this time.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but it is also a quality that stands on its own and does not depend on our observation. Desiring to see beauty even in adversity, will help us to manage what it is we are all doing. We all yearn for a better experience. Perhaps it is not so far-fetched to imagine re-visioning and re-creating the Earth as a Paradise, and new Eden. By the way, that is the theme of my next ‘Revealing the Mysteries’ radio show this Sunday. See the details below for that.
Finally, we are not ever alone. Prayer does work, and as the call for aid and understanding goes out it is always answered back in some form. Since we do not know what we do not know, a beginner’s mind and childlike trust is essential. It also helps to be as wise as an owl, so we never allow ourselves to have that trust abused ever again.
Until next week, when I share what I feel the Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is about, onwards in love and…

Times of crisis are like novel super-learning curves. They just will not leave us alone…or so it seems. I myself, possibly you, and the world at large appears to be suffering inside a nightmare that has no apparent end. Not all is lost however, we still have access to something beyond the noise and discord.
Step with me into an hour of immersion with Source Consciousness and Sophia the Planetary Wisdom Goddess, dreaming things into being through love and magic…allowing ourselves to drop our shoulders, drop our defences and once again remind ourselves that we are never alone in any struggle. Reminding ourselves of how divine our humanity is. We no longer can afford to place our sovereign natures into the hands of external authority, no matter how well-intentioned it appears to be.
If we want a new world, a new Eden, we will have to stand up for it. However, it begins with where our alignment rests. If that is sitting with fear and anxiety, then that will be our experience. If we select beauty, awe, and connection, then anything can be possible. Even a new Eden. Let us play!

There are many effects or influences occurring that we can observe in the world now.
The pre-eminent emotional resonance is still rooted in fear, paranoia, or depression. The other main ones are confusion, dissension, and further atomization of people within societies around the globe. By atomization I mean that human interaction is now mostly reduced to online interactions, via Zoom, YouTube, social media, chat rooms, and the comments areas on many online news platforms. The sense of estrangement and dislocation is further exacerbated by the hyper-normalisation of living an ever-more disembodied existence, focused in the area above the eyebrows.
The human mind is not just a sensory-based bio "computer". It is a living and molecular location of one node of our mind, or extra-sensory awareness. You can call this the spirit or "soul" of each individual. The mind itself, spread out as it is throughout our body and into the space around each of us, is capable of things a supercomputer cannot match, even with today's technology. Tech can certainly mimic, but it is incapable of creating originality or feeling human feelings, or love itself. It is a mimic, an externalization of our own neural network - the basis of the artificial binary reality that is enfolding around our cerebral cortexes. We have literally turned ourselves inside out. If you have ever wondered what this might look like, imagine a turtle or a mollusk, without its protective shell.
Since the mind has no firewall as such, we interact with Life on this plane and planet in two main ways. We make certain choices, consciously or otherwise, to have certain experiences we feel we want to have. The other way is that things, people, or circumstances that just seem to "happen" to us. We sense a loss of control or free will in those situations. Nowadays we may even blame ourselves for experiencing a reality or event that we certainly did not plan on, but happened anyway. In both instances, we may not always get what it is that we thought we wanted to experience, and we also may have something happen with us or to us that ends up as blessing in disguise. Changing your thinking from "I create my own reality" to "I create reality, and Reality is creating me" reduces our fear of the unknown (and the need for certainty), while giving us more options to choose again. This point will be important, as you will find out.
Thoughts, influences, and experiences shape our perceptions. If we are unawares of how we are aligning or entraining to anything, then we may unknowingly behave as the creators of those influences wish us to behave. Marketing and advertising have achieved untold levels of leverage over human consciousness via digital means. We know that via documentaries such as "The Social Dilemma." What we need to become even more aware of is how we are influenced or imprinted on other levels of our mind, even in our own bodies. Entrainment, resonance, and imprinting are the way mammals operate and learn from each other. Unfortunately, these natural and beautiful traits are now being used against humanity.
Sovereignty is one way to describe a being that is completely in harmony with all environments and other beings, while maintaining a sense of "self". The American mystic Edgar Cayce, when asked to describe what the Christ Consciousness was, said: "To know thyself to be thyself, yet One with All That Is." When we can even touch into that field of awareness we can understand that the Christ Mind is not something belonging to the historical Jesus (or Yeshua) per se...it is an inherent part of each human being. The Gnostics referred to this divine gift as "epinoia", which means divine imagination and awareness.
Resonance is constantly happening, and un-happening. We fall in love with someone. Five years later we may still love that person, but we are no longer "in love" with them. Resonance, for whatever reason, has changed or fallen away. A child loses interest in a plaything or toy. The resonant field that supported that interaction has changed. Resonance is a function of how Spirit is creating and learning about differing aspects of Itself, or remembering more of what He/She already is. We are co-creators, soul poets and scientists, existing beyond time and space, and yet totally immersed within it, trying to merge with All That Is while simultaneously striving to individuate and know what sovereign and free action is all about. Quite a paradox, wouldn't you say?
One of the ways in which resonance manifests is in the realm of illness and disease. We can literally "vibe" with a pattern of resonance that fears disease or even death. This is called the "nocebo effect". One of the pioneers in mind-biology links is Dr. Bruce Lipton. His studies into epigenetics and beliefs have arrived at conclusions remarkably like those in quantum theory and quantum entanglement. His discoveries also support what Dr. John C. Lilly said about our minds and consciousness: "Whatever the mind believes to be true, either becomes true, or is true." This is an important factor in our attempts to understand the pandemic that erupted in late December 2019 and then engulfed the world. The effects may also be happening due to the extreme levels of toxicity in myriad forms on our planet today. The Latin word for a poison or toxin is "virus". What if a virus is nothing more than a cellular component that is reacting to toxicity? There is much more we must learn about the interactions of resonance, belief, and the environment as regards human biological and emotional wellbeing. First, we will need to examine our addiction to scientific orthodoxy, which is contrary to the true spirit of scientific inquiry and spirituality.
Witnessing the chaos and disintegration of patterns in our world now is difficult. So many seem so hypnotized, or plain lost. Millions have no other concern other than simply surviving. Did we really want it to be this way? Our understanding of how human consciousness works and interacts is the key to extricating ourselves. Creation is born out of chaos and resonance by informed choice, arrived at by combination of meditation/spiritual hygiene, critical thought, and practical action. It is necessary to reverse the direction we are now finding our world going towards. The disintegration of the old order must continue, even when there seems to be no new framework to rely upon yet to replace it. The old consciousness is simply unable to offer any solution to the problems it has created.
When I channelled Archangel Ariel back in the early 2000's, one statement made to describe the future situation we now find ourselves facing was expressed in such simple language: "Stop trying to fix this whole thing. Stop trying to reform it or remediate it. Let that go. If you have a broken-down old car, would you really spend good money to put four brand new tires on it? Not an incredibly wise response to the problem."
I completely concur.
It is imperative that we understand that during this year that the challenges and changes, with the squares between the two social planets Uranus and Saturn, will be definitive and long-lasting. The three main challenges are the choice of freedom over a digitized technocracy, the sovereign right of the individual to exercise informed consent, and resisting groupthink or hive mind and letting go of addiction to self-development and personal improvement so that we can work together more effectively and lovingly.
One of the things I encourage you to do is to carefully examine yourself for any signs of deferring to outside authority for security, direction, certainty, and leadership. Also, become a student of spiritual or psychic hygiene techniques to maintain your bio-resonance with your own biology and with Nature both here on the planet and throughout the Multiverse. If you do not know how to do this, contact me for some tools. I also facilitate this work and have others I can refer you to.
Lastly, fastidiously monitor your interactions and usage of electricity and technology. Currently the Dual-Headed Gods are Science (orthodox) and Technology (digital), but they are false gods. How they came to dominate our world is a story for another time. Our task for now is to take responsibility for allowing it to happen thus far by compassionately understanding how we have been sleepwalking with it for so long...and then taking the necessary steps to change ourselves, and by extension, create the potential world we would all like to create and inhabit. Where everyone is healthy, where everyone thrives, where loving kindness, cooperation and creativity are paramount.
It is up to us to re-establish and maintain our sacred connections, to the plants, the animals, the planetary intelligence. Nature is worth preserving, for it indeed is the Mother of us all.
Remember what we're here for, what you're here for. And hold sacred the beauty of this place, and see the Divine in the heart of it.
Blessings of Peace,

On that Tuesday morning 18 years I was still half awake on the West Coast when the phone rang. A friend on the Eastern seaboard let us know what was happening in New York City, and we got the television turned on just before the South Tower collapsed. However, even as my partner at the time was relaying what our friend was telling her over the phone, a small voice inside me whispered, “don’t panic, its all a setup.” I didn’t question that, and my whole body resonated with the truth that was implicit in it. What unfolded during that day, and the days and weeks and years since, has only reinforced that knowing – that it has all been a setup. I’ll get back to that concept in a minute.
Probably like you, I’ve never felt like I was from “here”. As a young child, I’d look up at the stars and think, “That’s home. Why am I here then?” I perceive that some of us certainly have lineages to other races and worlds out there, but our intrinsic story of how human beings came to be, and our part in that story, has been well hidden from us…on purpose. I’ve come to understand that when we long to go Home, it is a clue to a bonding trauma that our souls remember from a time deeply burned into our eternal memory banks. It is symbolic of our false belief in separation from Source Consciousness and Love. This did not come about because of a Fall, but because of a Push. The divine dream for our souls and for humanity was intended to be along a different road, with a different story, than what we have inherited on this Planet.
So we looked to the wisdom of the Ancients for answers, and delved into the old metaphysical texts and traditions, along the teachings from various Adepts and messages from Higher Beings beyond our world. A very few enlightened souls have pointed the way Home, but they have been few…too few.
During my life I’ve witnessed how those of us who are the Seekers have embraced and released many of these methods, traditions, beliefs and doctrines. Some aspects are full of Truth and worth keeping. Some have been proven to be full of hollow promises, and in some cases, vehicles for subtle enslavement or deception.
At the turn of the last Millennium many were strongly suspecting that a mass awakening would occur, and much on this world would be healed and a new era of love, compassion, cooperation and prosperity would envelope us. The environment would be respected…and repaired. Altruism would replace capitalism. This mass awakening would render the Old Order of politics and religions obsolete, creating the fertile ground for a universality of spiritual paths in which all were respected as roads that lead homeward. Then, the stolen election of 2000, followed by 9/11 happened. We went into collective shock.
In the run up to the Iraq War in early 2003, some of us joined with millions of regular people to voice our opposition to this opportunistic and dangerous war, only to be ignored by those we elected and trusted. From then until now, we continue to experience one shockwave after another…and it doesn’t seem to be letting up or getting better, no matter what individual efforts towards further spiritual growth and illumination we make. The reason for this does not lie in some fault in ourselves.
We hardly created the causes that have created the conditions in which we now find ourselves. However, if we continue to discover, embody and act from the place of the power of Love within us, we can affect the direction, change the course, make a huge difference. The time is short for this to occur. The acceleration of climatic change and ecological decay is obvious. What is also obvious is how the decay is now apparent system wide. All political surety around democracy is severely damaged, make everyone vulnerable to those who value power and greed above all else. The financial and monetary systems are corrupt, based on debt and fraud. The air isn’t fit to breath, the water fit to drink (and it’s under threat), and the food isn’t fit to eat. Just to survive, many are forced to ignore the larger issues and strive to make it from payday to payday in order to feed themselves and their families. Can anyone look around and think that this is what God-Goddess desires for human beings?
Our choice is obvious. Evolve or perish as a species, as Nature and the planet press the reset button and usher in a new eon that will not include humans and many other lifeforms. It’s happened before…five times.
Back to the “setup.” To be fully conscious and awake as a human being, to be a Spirit and not a ghost, we need to recognize that within us dwells the utmost ability to imagine and actualize a different outcome, and a different world. Not just for you and me, but for others, and those younger generations that are growing up even now. I may not see its fruition, but I will not stop trying and working to bring it about.
When all looks hopeless, it’s time to remember what faith looks and feels like. It’s time to surrender to that greater Power within us that gave us Life, and the power to imagine anything. It’s the power that creates Life, from the seed to the towering oak…almost effortlessly. The story can be different, but we first must attend to where we are holding onto beliefs, opinions, attachments or sacred cows that no longer serve. To that end, we can and must make the break from the world that we grew up in. That needs to happen in order that we do not repeat the errors of the past. The looping game stops with us, or we all stop.
But first, we will have to pass through the Eye of the Needle.
The next 18 months or so are very critical for all of us and the Earth. It should be a time in which we are willing to surrender and admit that none of us, individually or collectively, has all the answers to the big issues, or our own best good. Events in the outer reality are crystallizing towards a crescendo of crises unprecedented in the collective history of the planet. Astrological markers like the Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn contacts that started this year, will especially make a big noise during the first 5 months of 2020. This will test many. I don’t say this to scare everyone, but to bring awareness and channel powerful solutions both personally and collectively.
I understand perfectly if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by all this. May I suggest trying what you haven’t tried before? If those inherited rituals, cultural indoctrinations, or the beliefs that you were told would make you enlightened aren’t working any longer, and you’re doing them out of habit, then perhaps you could try to follow your own wisdom in your heart. Let go of the rules and become a law unto yourself. We were designed in the image of Nature, or the Feminine spirit that dwells within Nature if you will. All Nature’s creatures know their nature and express it without censoring. They all value freedom above all else.
When we let go (heal) our inherited “stuff”, then our nature can shine through, and we can know a freedom no society or government can guarantee to us. The ego and all its fears and worries will gravitate to its rightful position as an instrument of the Soul’s evolution, and Spirit and Heart will regain the throne of the Self - knowing itself as itself and yet One with All That Is. This is the core of the work of transformation. To become fully human…a human embodying the Divine Dream. Then will we know Heaven on Earth.

“Slow down, you move to fast. You’ve got to make the moment last.” – Simon & Garfunkel
“If we valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – JRR Tolkien
“Look at Nature! All Nature loafs, while Man alone works for a living.” – Morton Tolboll
When we really tune into our experience of this world right now, and think back one, three, or even 10 years ago, would you say you are more content and satisfied, or less? Does everything make more sense to you, or less? Most importantly, do you have more time to spend enjoying the things that Life offers, or less? Even though everything is abstractly in the “now”, having enough time is, ironically, our most precious resource.
As you reflect on your own answers, I hope it turns out that you are more content, feel like more things are clearer to you, and that you are enjoying a load of time to be with your family, friends, and favorite pursuits. Congratulations, for you are part of a rare and possibly shrinking percentile of the population. If you are not experiencing this expanded state of life, then perhaps you’ll resonate with my call for the Slow Life.
My own perceptions about why it is that there is so much pressure, stress and anxiousness is as multidimensional as the causes themselves. Just some of the current causes are as follows:
Many people in our developed information-based societies are dancing as fast as possible to maintain their standard of living. A good deal more are staying just ahead of losing their livelihood, their income, or their home. Debt and debt service are at record highs. A good many sacrifice warmth and comfort just to be able to put food on the table for themselves and their families. The world is too busy trying to stave off collapse to notice that it’s eating up a massive amount of their attention, resources, and most importantly, time.
Since you’re reading this, I can safely assume that you are deeply interested in spirituality, meditation, transformation, positive perspectives and creating a better world for yourself and everyone else too. Choosing peace, and living a peaceful life is also one of your priorities. However, the world is far from being a peaceful place…currently anyway. Struggle, anxiety, depression and adrenal fatigue are a very real experience for many. Desperation and starvation are something that too many children and their parents are enduring in places like Syria and Yemen. We’d all like to do something more, to contribute more, to help more, but we ourselves are often also just too busy with our dreams, our careers, and the needs of others close to us to be able to do much more than we are already doing.
If everything in your life is fantastic, free, easy and full of joy, then I congratulate you heartily! But if you’re feeling doubt or fear what the future may hold or are even just too tired to care much at all, then I’d like to invite you to really take a long look at your world, your experience and begin to question the stories of how the world works. It is vitally important to understand where we are first, before creating any possible solutions.
In order to do this, you’re going to have to create a slower life. You can’t see or hear anything properly if it’s whizzing by too quickly! Start by carving out 10-15 minutes a day…to do nothing that relates to your work or list of responsibilities. I don’t even want to suggest to you that you meditate, but you could “do” that!
Get into a quieter space. Bedroom? Close the door, turn off the phone. You could pick something that you enjoy doing…thoroughly, like sewing, or cooking, or reading. Better yet, just sit. Eyes open or eyes closed. Sit…quietly. Listen to your breath, your heart. Watch your mind churn…and keep following your own breath. Focus on a single object in front of you if that helps…and really gaze at it effortlessly.
If you find you’re getting annoyed with nothing to do, or with abject silence, then welcome to the club. You’re on the verge of detecting where we are constantly up against a program of distraction from what really matters, which is connection to Source, your own soul and body well-being. Source, God, Goddess, Love, or whatever name you choose to call it, is the Infinite Divine wellspring of everything there is, and everything that isn’t. You didn’t create yourself, and you are alive and breathing through the agency of this Source, and you cannot alter that fact. Pretty humbling stuff, if you ask me. Consciousness and awakening are the ultimate impulse of the Life-Love energy that pulses throughout all that is. Can you just rest in that presence for even 10 minutes? Give it a try. Oh, and you don’t need any intermediary for this…no angels, no masters, no guides. Just you and You. No problem!
After this little experiment, write down what you experienced and what you didn’t experience. It’s a merely a reflective exercise, without a right or wrong to it. Ideally, it can bring you into a place of real pleasurable sensations…a sense of calmness and okay-ness. At least that’s the idea and ideal.
Since we are in the season of giving, I’d suggest that one of the big things you can begin to express with whatever you come away with from these slow life moments is compassion. To give kindness and compassion to whomever you encounter over the last few weeks of 2018 will have great effect. It’s an equalizer, and the one something that we all are needing more of is love and a sense of belonging…the power of communing and community. The best currency, and in my opinion only currency is Love. If you give a donation, let it be wrapped in the felt presence of deliberate and premeditated love. Slow down, and ask the homeless person if they are okay, or if you make the time, ask them to share a bit about themselves. You may get quite an illuminating education and blessing in the process. The money part isn’t the main gift. It’s the gift of time you give to another…a space that is priceless when so many just rush on by, averting their eyes, and caught up in their personal troubles and drama.
Back in a few days with the next segment on The Slow Life. The astrology of Chiron now direct in Pisces is priming us for major healing opportunities on many levels, so relax into the possibilities of what that might engender for yourself.
