STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
February 16th, 2022
I know I blitzed you with a ton of information and perspectives in my last newsletter a week ago, so there’s not much I can add to the detail around the USA Pluto Return coming up this Sunday, or much else that is of an astrological nature. You, my Dear Reader, are probably breathing a sigh of relief. Good.
I use to compose my articles the day after a night of unusual dreams. Downloads as it were. That hasn’t happened in a long time, the leftover impressions from the dreamtime spilling over into a blog, but it happened this morning in the early hours. I received a message, or impressions, about what the needed to be most said through me in this blog.
No matter what is or isn’t happening in the world right now, you and I and all of Creation is loved beyond belief. No matter what is or isn’t happening in your life right now, you are loved beyond belief. No matter what will happen or won’t happen, it does not matter…we are loved beyond belief. No matter what, we are that Love, and we emerged from that Love by choice-desire-curiosity.
None of us are an “accident” of the Universe, nor are you and I here because of some whim of The Fates. We have purpose in our Be-ing…even when we don’t feel like we’re fulfilling our believed or adopted purpose. Sometimes our egos hijack our purpose, or distort it, or diminish it. The rock-solid truth you can always rely on is that, in the end, the truth if this: you are Love/Loved beyond belief.
And no matter who you are, and even though you may feel alone at times, no one is alone…ever.
Now some of what I relate here will already be familiar to most of you, and you’ve heard it all before. If so, that’s great! However, I must honestly say that almost everyone I speak with these days is dealing with something challenging. The continuing agenda of separating humanity into two classes of people still ripples throughout the collective experience. We all know this is instinctively “wrong” but most figure there’s nothing one can do about it. Perhaps we are so wrapped up on keeping up with our own life and it’s complexities, focusing only on our own personal triumphs or tragedies. Nonetheless, this divisiveness is useful, in one sense. It awakens us to our own inner duplicities or divisions and can help us realize that this artifice we call our “civilization” or “culture” is unsustainable and running in place to fit into its imposed agenda is a zero-sum game.
Existentially speaking, it is all unsustainable. Fearing the unknown, we cling to the past masquerading as the present and hope that we’ll get to the “new normal” somehow. What I didn’t see or understand until late last week is how much of what we call “our experience” is imposed on our lives without our consent, so much so that the plans we make, the dreams we hold about what we want in our own soul’s experience takes a back seat within this “matrix” of sorts.
Is God/Goddess doing that? Well, trick question. Since we are inextricably part of God/Goddess, I reckon we all bear some responsibility, as we allow whatever this is to continue. Some of us are acquiescing to the illusion and some are going “what a minute…that doesn’t feel right or good to me!” Remember, no matter what’s happening, somehow and at some point in the future it will all work out for the best. You are always at choice in what you will or will not participate with. With what has happened and is happening, you have a choice in how you relate to it, and what you will or will not allow to continue in your experience.
We are infinite and eternal. Nothing is imposed without some level of tacit permission given…by you or me. Even if we don’t want this or that challenge in our lives to be occurring, it is there for a reason. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be there! Karmic or not, it is what it is. What is unfolding, including the so-called darkness and chaos, is part of the awakening/remembering/maturing process, and we are sharing in all of it.
We set up the tenpins so we can knock them down. The Universe suggests that we just don’t make a habit out of it. Then it turns into what we call “our karma”. Unconscious repetition isn’t evolution! Through it all we are still Love/Loved beyond belief.
The atmosphere is filling up with more uncertainties, chugging along in our peripheral vision, and/or intruding into our daily activities. As the old scripture says, “Fear not. Even if the mountains should slide into the sea, I Am with you, always.” That message is Love reminding us again that we…are…never…alone. There is nothing that is inherently within us, that doesn’t want to help.
True mastery doesn’t mean standing as a lone entity in the entirely of Creation, impervious and totally transpersonal. It also includes embracing all that is, and still not falling into forgetfulness of Who We Are beyond all form or circumstance. That is what being “rock solid” is, and that is what Spirit is…rock solid, always there…and everywhere. No judging, no punishments, no force or coercion, no dogma, or rules. Just Love, being Love.
Rock solid baby!
Blessings on your journey,

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, February 20th, 2022
Show Synopsis: It is here…the main event of 2022. An elevated point of view and feeling fully grounded will be essential to fully comprehend how massive the changes ahead will be. I cannot predict exactly what the initiation or outcome of any event that manifests from the potent and irresistible force of the Pluto Return in the USA Natal Chart will be. I do sense that as with anything Plutonic it will be intense, and long-lasting. Since this celestial event is focused on the 2nd House of America’s birth chart, the emphasis will be on the theme of security and power, or lack thereof. It will center on money, currencies (fiat, digital and crypto), housing, food, farming, stocks, bonds, equities, futures, real estate, trading, and fertility. Also thrown into the mix will be secrets becoming known, revelations of official frauds and Ponzi schemes, and anything or everything having to do with the old control and power-over game. However, that will only be possible by renouncing that game and allow it to fade into the mists of time. Time for new beginnings.
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EDT, and 9:30am PDT.

Standing Alone, Rising Together
STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
for December 2nd, 2021
“Standing Alone, Rising Together”
By Isaac George
“Given that Sagittarius holds the reputation for remaining uncontainable while in an interpersonal relationship, this degree promotes the most enthusiastic support for that trait of all of the degrees of Sagittarius. Words like subjugation, irrepressible, independent, non-confining, space-allowing and the like often receive dramatic declaration within the expression of this zodiacal longitude. Ironically, once these people show what they know, others flock to them like flies to melting ice cream on a hot summer day. The Sag quickly points out how sticky it all gets.” – from a summary on the Great Attractor, by Philip Sedgwick.
“It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.” – Voltaire
Hope this finds all of you feeling well and peaceful. We have big doings a little 48 hours from when I publish this blog. On Saturday, December 4th, 2021, there will be a total Solar Eclipse (New Moon at 12 degrees of Sagittarius. It will be conjunct (aligned) with the Great Attractor at 14 Degrees of Sagittarius, hence the reason for the above quote. This event marks the end of the eclipse seasons for 2021 but is by no means the end of significant Astro-Events for the rest of this year. December is brimming with challenge, change and awakenings energy.
This Sun-Moon combination is opposing Black Moon Lilith and conjoined by Mercury. Black Moon Lilith represents the archetype of the “wronged woman” and embodies the essence of independent feminine power, or ‘wild woman,’ that refuses to be controlled by the patriarchy or any systemic thinking. My take on this aspect is that the Divine Feminine consciousness will embolden many women to seriously take back the power that they may have ceded to the systems that rely on patriarchal and corporate mentality, and blind compliance. This also will apply to many men that are opening to their more intuitive side, and who may realize that the capitalist-consumer agenda is at odds with the natural world and essential needs of human beings materially and spiritually. (Chart of the Eclipse at end of article)
As crazy as the energy shifts have been for the past while, and even though the outside world seems even crazier and chaotic than last week, the next four-month period will be more unstable for several reasons. This Eclipse is a significant catalyst for this, but other transits happening this December will complement the Eclipse energy.
Neptune turns direct just ahead of the Eclipse on December 1st. The upside of Neptune finally turning direct in Pisces is that it will assist all of us who are spiritually oriented to go inwards with greater effect and reward. The Sag vibe will be asking us to hold fast to whatever vision or ideal we would like to realize or experience in the beauty to come, the transforming of human consciousness and the rejuvenation of Nature and the Planet. The downside is that the shadow aspect of Neptune can be used by those that resist the divine changes unfolding to create more fear, anxiety, and compliance. The dominator agendas of the old paradigm must give way to the irresistible impulse of Spirit to dissolve the false narrative. Neptune in Pisces is like a call to pay attention to the One Source of all that is, which is nothing but pure Love and Consciousness.
The spiritual archetype of Sagittarius embodies our notions of freedom, especially freedom from arbitrary external restrictions or rules. Sag’s do not do well in captivity, and are always seeking faith, truth (empirical fact-checking and/or spiritual truths), and justice. They will find any excuse to stir the pot, and they champion underdogs and the persecuted relentlessly as they feel personally offended if the strong take advantage of the weak.
There is a kinship between the constellation Sagittarius, known as ‘The Archer,’ in the heavens, and the character of Chiron the Wounded Healer, who is also a Centaur. Representing creatures that are half-man, half-horse (double-bodied) the Centaurs are a grouping of minor cosmic objects (some say comets) that have played a significant role by transit during the events of the past decade or so. Some astrologers have referred to this period of transiting Centaurs as “Running the Gauntlet.” The amount of chaos we have witnessed since 2008-2009 certainly makes that an apt descriptor.
The spirit of Sagittarius has demonstrated itself in human history many times, and through many individuals. Ordinary or unremarkable people seem to suddenly rise out of nowhere to the occasion to speak deep or sometimes uncomfortable truths and perform extraordinary things. They do this even when the cost of doing so might cause them personal pain and loss or cause them to become an outcast or exile to their societies. This is like the character of Don Quixote in the play “Man of La Mancha,” and as such, they will hold a singular vision or ideal that will benefit the collective...even if they do not see that it will do so.
Those people that have prominent Sagittarius in their natal charts express buoyant optimism, charisma, charm, and a warm and enveloping presence. However, Jupiter, the natural ruler of Sagittarius, can go overboard, exaggerating or blowing things out of proportion. Too much of good thing is one way to think of Jupiter-Sagittarius energy.
A notable example I have recently encountered is about one man who embodied the Sag Energy as a real-life crusader by the name of Rob Bilott, a lawyer for a firm that represents chemical companies. I watched this film about Rob the other night, called “Dark Waters” starring Mark Ruffalo. I will not go into the plot of the film, but it is a true story about real people and how one man risked everything including his life and family to save others from pain, misery and even death which was caused by a major multinational chemical company. Highly recommend you check it out as it is super inspiring and an incredible model of how deep and high the human-divine spirit can rise when the chips are down.
Remember my blog from around the time of the Full Moon two weeks ago? In it I emphasized the power of choice. Every human being has a divine and sovereign right to choose what he or she will or will not allow into their life or their bodies. These rights cannot be granted by any earthly power or government. They are inalienable. The principles of what is allowed with regards to medical procedures was enshrined after WW2 at the Nuremburg War Crimes trials in the Nuremberg Code. It affirms a person's inalienable rights regarding medical procedures and any medical experiments. If you wish to read the Nuremberg Code, you may find it here. What has been happening in Austria in recent days where they are stigmatizing the unvaxxed and demanding that every citizen be vaxxed can or may happen elsewhere.
Please understand that I respect anyone’s choice as to what you will or will not allow as far as medical procedures go. But when choice is removed by a mandate or by decree instead of public oversight of the political process, then what have we consented to?
Yes, I live in a European country and have full residency status and regardless of any of the current circumstances I am very grateful and thankful that I have a warm home, a loving partner, two beautiful cats, and good friends. Hope you do as well. The
warmth and reassurance of human companionship and community are essential these days.
Personally, I do have Sagittarius rising, close to the Great Attractor, so I am inspired by the example of Rob Bilott, and many of the other warriors of Light in this world. There are many who have spoken up for those unable to defend themselves or to right wrongs. I have made my choice and choose to use that choice wisely to help others reclaim their personal power and sovereignty. This is done from the core of Love, to do my bit no matter how small towards furthering human awareness and freedom. Love not only nurtures and soothes…it also protects and preserves. It stands up with a strong voice and addresses injustice or abuse, no matter what form it might appear in. As such it is always a power for healing.
A phenomenon of sorts that has been occurring in recent months is that millions in the U.S. are quitting their jobs! People in low-wage positions working ridiculous hours or under duress are leaving in droves. Watch this video from Russell Brand for more details: “Millions More Quit Work.” As a friend of mine said, “they’re voting with their feet.” Feeling like nothing more than a disposable cog in the machine is a dehumanizing situation. It is no longer tenable. One clue as to when that idea began is when businesses changed the Employment Department to the Human Resources Department. Excuse me, but are you a resource or a human being sourced from the Divine?
In other news I have decided to take at least a two-month holiday from hosting my radio show, "Revealing the Mysteries" on Kindasound. org. I will be reducing current obligations and spend more time in quietude and contemplation. This also means fewer blogs and newsletters. just for a while. There is a mystic wisdom in doing less, or nothing at all.
I have added some links and information at the end of the article which you can investigate for yourselves and decide where you stand with it. I know that some of what I share might cause you to feel uncomfortable, but all I am doing is exercising my right to express myself and provide information that empowers and uplifts instead of cultivating less open dialog and division. What you choose to believe or to not believe is none of my business. I am just being a Sag, presenting the things that may be showing you how sticky it all is getting. Note: not shooting the messenger is always greatly appreciated.
The larger meaning of this Eclipse, and that includes the astrological and energetic influences, is to not give your power away to external authorities and to not lose hope. Not “hope” as ‘things will eventually be better in the future, or after I die,’ but hope as expressed in the pure Sagittarian faith in a reality in which everything eventually will be okay., even though current appearances may not reflect your vision or ideal…yet!
We all hold a piece of the Truth, and we all are here to fulfil a role that only you could fulfil. Facts and evidence are one part of the fabric of Truth, but of itself it cannot express the totality of Truth. In fact, expressing ultimate Truth in any language is an impossibility. Language and thinking can provide the stairway to the door of Truth, but when we arrive there, we will be required to relinquish all thoughts, debates, arguments, or conflicts before we can BE the Truth…of Who You and I Really Are. That should be an empowering thought, as we all possess access to that immutable divine spark at the very core of ourselves.
My last piece of advice is to cultivate a sense of humour, and it does help to imagine that our experience here is part of a divine experiment. Laughter and joy are excellent tonics for too much seriousness. Learn to laugh at your own foibles and idiosyncrasies.
The last bit about this Sagittarius stuff, is to do what Sag’s are supposed to…follow and trust Spirit, or Intuition if you will. Listen to what your soul says is right. Listen to what your heart says is true. And listen to what your deepest feeling is telling you. If you have trust that compass, standing alone is not a problem, and rising together becomes ever more possible.
Peace, love, and blessings on your journey, and create beauty,

The Challenge and the Calling
by Isaac George
December 2nd 2017
Greetings! To those of you over in my old homeland of the USA, I hope you enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving with your families and friends. They don't observe T-Day here in the UK, but frankly, my waistline won't miss out much. The next holiday season will be arriving in about 25 days from now.
I want to ask you something. As 2017 is drawing to a close, how has your year been? Be honest with yourself now... have all your goals, hopes and dreams you intended at the beginning of this year been realized? Bottom line, are you actually more fulfilled, healthy (emotionally, mentally and physically), prosperous and happy than you were in January? If your answer is "Yes", then good on ya! If your answer is "heck no!", then read on.
No matter which side of the equation you find yourself after that question, I feel you'd agree with me on a couple of key points. 1) This planet is a radiant and beautiful place... and is very much worth preserving. 2) There's a lot going on in the world that isn't okay, that isn't radiant and beautiful... or fair to all. 3) That there needs to be a saner, better way to live that isn't so costly and destructive to our souls, psychologically physically, socially or environmentally. 4) That we can, and indeed must, find the personal and collective will, guided by our Creator, to envision and create a new world that is a type of heaven on the Earth.
From the burgeoning refugee crisis in the Middle East, to the opoid epidemic sweeping the United Sates; from the human trafficking and sexual abuse that seems pervasive everywhere, to the widening gap between the elite who create and control more and more of the global wealth and resources; from the crushing hunger and homelessness... and hopelessness that we see around us, to the increasing breakdowns of individual freedoms and once-reliable institutions, we are all in some way either part of the problem, or part of the solution to these evils and ills. I use the term evil to define problems that have, or seem to be, beyond addressing or repair. However, I am in no way saying we are powerless or helpless to make a difference. To paraphrase Gandalf from Lord of the Rings when he counselled Frodo, we're here in these times to do what we can with the time we have been given.
We are immensely complex, sensitive and powerful creations of Divine Love. We are capable of so much more than what the world and our past has defined us to be. We possess the imagination of the gods and goddesses, and are capable of creating our own versions of hell or heaven. It's always our choice... and we own nothing more valuable than our power to choose, and change.
Beginning today I am making a re-commitment to my spiritual path as an emissary of Love, a speaker of truth to power, and desire to help others realize Who They Are beyond their past stories, or future fears. To make a difference in the lives of others requires that we first see ourselves with the eyes of Spirit, not the ego.
If you'd like to move forward in 2018 towards more freedom within and without, an empowered sense of purposeful living through right livelihood, more nurturing and fulfilling relationships, an understanding of how the world really works, and why it's no longer healthy to just try and "fit in" to simply survive, then I'd like to invite you on to a free exploratory call with me. I will listen to your deepest desires, and your most prevalent fears. I will then suggest some things that you can take action on right now to bring you more into the Present moment and start getting clearer within about the next steps to take. I can then explain to you how my Spiritual Mentoring program and tools can further your growth and self- realization, and how to live a more peaceful and grounded life in a world that is going to change even more dramatically in the times to come. For me, a successful life has little to do with the size of your bank balance or stock portfolio, or accomplishments. It has everything to do with how peaceful, joyful and loving you are towards yourselves and others. Have you loved well, and have you made someone's life better by your being here? That's a success that you can take with you at the end of your life here.
The invitation is below. Remember that you have the power to choose between the past, or an uncertain future, or a future that you want to face. A future that you can live fully in the Presence of right now, right here. There's absolutely no obligation or selling involved.
To find out more, join me for a little chat together. I look forward to hearing from you.
In Love, Isaac

Ripping the Veil
by Isaac George
Oct 12th, 2015
I am morphing into a heretical evolutionary astrologer. In other words, with a few future exceptions, I will be blogging less about lunar events, eclipses, etc. There are a number of reasons for this, which I’ll cover in a different series of blogs that will be coming up in the next few weeks, but suffice it to say that as an evolutionary, or soul-based, astrologer, it’s time to evolve! Perhaps the term “pirate astrologer” might suit. Hmm…star larceny might not work. Now that’s out of the way, time to focus on this week’s festivities.
There’s a lovely being whose been messaging me for a week or so now, asking “when will things settle down?” My pat answer to her, and others, is “not in the foreseeable future.” Today is a good example. It’s a New Moon in Libra, and yes, there is a HUGE amount of energy pressing down on all of us regarding relationships; our relationship with Self, with others, or a significant (and possibly difficult) “other.” With each passing day, it appears that external and internal forces are coaxing, if not downright pushing us to make decisions…to choose a path, a new direction or commitment. And this is indeed what is occurring, and will continue to occur with increasing intensity. (The chart is below, and the exact moment of the New Moon is 1:05BST, 12:05GMT, October 13th. It occurs on October 12th in North and South America.)
When is it going to settle down? I’ve got no idea, and my advice is don’t look for some sort of external reprieve to suddenly return you, me or the rest of the world to some somnambulistic version of our previous worldly experience (think the Eisenhower years of the 1950’s, or Marty McFly’s lifestyle in “Back to the Future” during the 1980’s). It’s not going to morph suddenly into a future Utopia either (remember 2012?). Nobody is going to get to sleepwalk through the next decade or so, and I’ll stake my astrological reputation on it. Now, before you shut down and call me a negativist and accuse me of fear-mongering, I’d just like to ask you to look at how positive these times and the potential future times can be if we are stimulated, prodded, pushed and otherwise compelled to evolve out of our dysfunctional beliefs, habits and general brainwashing about how things are and how they’re supposed to be. The time for compromising your values or soul-instincts in order to please others and just get along in the Matrix is becoming more untenable with each transit.
This New Moon is only part of the energy that is ripping away the veils from our eyes. It’s activated and activating Uranus in Aries (retrograde) and that guy is traveling in close proximity with his feminine counterpart, the dwarf planet Eris. Eris is like a biker chick that’s looking to disturb your civilised sensibilities. The other activation is the inconjunct (tension) between the New Moon and Chiron retrograde in Pisces. This placement will ask all of us what our deepest despairs, losses and childhood wounds have been, and we will need to feel them, not intellectualize them. No room in the new paradigm for our unhealed inner child baggage. To be soft, yielding and compassionate with ourselves as we invite these soul parts back into the fold is the only way through the tension. It could get very edgy and a bit messy…let it do that. Diplomacy may be in short supply, as there are sudden shocks and insights regarding significant others that may upset your previous assumptions.
Venus and Saturn are the Razor’s Edge Gang today and over the next few days. In a close and tense square to one another, Venus demands a high level of ethics in Virgo…a purity of intent and purpose, while Saturn in Sagittarius is like a prosecuting attorney, pushing the defendant (you, other, or both) to come clean with the truth. Hear that sound? That’s because the veil of illusion and denial getting ripped apart.
Have a box of Kleenex nearby at all times.
Now on to the next order of business, which is about Jupiter and Venus conjunct in Virgo, and which will be in a trine Pluto in Capricorn on October 16th. Perhaps it’s time to watch the markets again.
Business as usual is going to also be undergoing the gravitational crunch over the next few months/years. The old models will be disintegrating at a more accelerated pace. Our economic model is currently fueled by two factors – greed or fear. There’s an astrological art known as mundane astrology that has been tracking trends in the financial and business world since before the last crash in 2008, and they were mostly right about that one happening. Now these astrologers are sounding the alarm bells that we may be headed into another not-so-nice situation, mainly because the fundamentals that caused the downturn in 2008 have never been addressed. In case you think I’m making this stuff up, take a moment to look at some of the headlines. Investors are paying attention...especially to the situation in China. This is only one article, but many governments and financial institutions are getting nervous, or creating the nervousness. Read more about it here.
Can our business model be reformed? For a number of reasons it’s very doubtful. I remember in the 90’s that some people who were awakening spiritually thought it would be possible to hang out in the corporate arena and effect change from the inside out. As former U.S. President Jimmy Carter discovered the hard way, it was easier to campaign on the promise to completely reform the U.S Federal governmental bureaucracy than it was to actually do it. And, as Buckminster Fuller recommended, we will need to invent something new and better to take the place of hyper-capitalism and neo-liberal policies (austerity is good for you!). You probably sense that all is not well with our financial and economic systems, and this is another reason the anxiety is at an all-time high. Perhaps higher than the Dow Jones Index on the Wall Street! The whole planet is operating from a place of cortisol poisoning. Don’t try to ignore it, because it’s not going to go away until we face facts and the truth of our illusions (Virgo-Sagittarius).
One of the primary energies this week is to download your own Soul Program. This will, by its very nature, not be what your mind will think it might be. Your “mission” is unique to you, and, it is integral with everyone else’s mission in one sense or another. You might find yourself outside of the mainstream, and wonder where your tribe/family/allies are hiding out. You may still try to operate within the “system” and it will work for the time being, until it no longer feeds your soul. One thing to assiduously avoid in any case is the idea of spiritual significance. In other words, you and your being here is no more or less important than another soul’s mission or purpose. Cooperation will have to replace the old ideas of competition. You just need to ask for it and cooperate with it, without trying to define it...for now anyway.
It would also be useful to examine some of our unconscious language we utilize in the marketplace and our lives. Here’s one example of what I’m talking about.
For all of us who are in the helping professions, life coaches, therapists, healers, bodyworkers and so forth, I’d recommend ditching the overused and well-worn term “client”. The origin of the word “client” is as follows:
Origin of client:
Old French ; from Classical Latin cliens, follower, retainer ; from Indo-European base an unverified form klei-, to lean, as in Classical Latin clinare (see incline); basic sense, “one leaning on another (for protection)”
Read more at http://www.yourdictionary.com/client#gJat6GGMGuD7eVWp.99
According to one of the Merriam -Webster’s Dictionary references, a client as “a person who engages the professional services of another; also: “patron, customer”. But get this, the first definition is “dependent.”
A health coach I know told me that she likes to think of those that come to her that she’s a professional friend for them. That’s a new clarity in the business relationship…being there as a friend!
It’s so ironic. We are all striving to become more self-actualized and self-sufficient, and at the same time we run the risk of becoming dependent on our “clients” and they become dependent on us. The therapeutic model needs an upgrade too. I look around and am amazed that our culture now demands so much of us, and a lot of folks are finding it harder and harder just to keep up. A larger swath of the population than ever before is in therapy, or on medication…or needs to be. Coaching and therapies are proliferating exponentially, and at the same time things are still getting crazier. Just noticing, and wondering if there’s something we’re missing in the equation.
I feel that what most of us really want is quite basic, and very human. We want to feel good!!
We all are Love, and crave love. Finding and feeling acceptance with one another is giving voice to love. To be listened to, seen and deeply understood is love in action. To be enfolded, and to be cherished…just for being human is Love demonstrated. To feel secure in our intimacies, in our strengths and in our vulnerabilities is Love as Protector. To just feel what it would be like without so much striving, stress and worry would be welcome. Should not Life be more than jumping from one stress management and coping mechanism to another? That in itself produces more stress…trying to find things to reduce stress. Do we have to reach the breaking point in order to change? We are so imaginative, inventive and creative…gifts that beg to be made manifest will begin to emerge from the crucible of change, the ripping of the veil. Welcome to the new normal.
Perhaps the planetary eco-emergency is something that will actually propel humanity into sanity again. I don’t know for sure, but we obviously need to behave differently if we, and most of the other species on this world, are to do more than survive. To thrive will require a spiritual renaissance, but I feel it will be more a shamanic and neo-pagan movement than something etherically spiritual, aka the "New Age." Empty yourself of all that you thought you knew…beginner’s mind is required today, tomorrow, and for the next millennia.
I recommend more a return to miracle-mindedness. “A miracle is something that looks impossible, but happens anyway.” That little gem was delivered by a character named Griffin (picture above) in the film “Men in Black 3”. I like it a lot! What we may be on the threshold of discovering is how we can integrate the practical and the magical, the pragmatic and the shamanic. It certainly sounds and looks a whole lot more sustainable and fun than the old model!
Let the veil fall from your eyes, or rip it away, and behold yourself new and renewed. You will see things that have been hidden, that have tranced you out, or numbed you from your true identity. Allow the illusions to crumble, let the child within heal, and may your warrior/lover arise from the ashes of the old order. It’s a New Moon…it’s a new day…it’s a new world, if you want it.
