We often look at the possibility of opportunity and adventure by perusing enticing magazines or websites that give us a taste of a life that seems out of reach to us. The wonderful imagery of the Visitation card is not about little green men, but it does represent a higher knowledge outside of ourselves. Opportunities we yearn for and living a life that transcends beyond routine drudgery does not require transportation to distant lands. New vistas of experience and wonder can begin to take place when we consciously step out of our established patterns. When we begin to forge new … Continue reading Connecting To A Higher Source
We all begin our journey as moths, fluttering around the first bit of light we encounter, bouncing ridiculously into the brightness or burning up in its flame. Often we are unable to reach its source, completely unaware that more light exists elsewhere and most importantly within ourselves. Until we rediscover and release the light that shines from within; when we allow this spirited wisdom to emerge, then transformation is possible. Influenced by the cycles of nature, transmutations will take on the qualities represented by the balance between our impulsive will, our emotions and our intellect. Be aware and create balance … Continue reading THE MOTH. How are you transmuting?
The signs have not been few and they have not been subtle. If you have the awareness to see them, then you also know that they are gaining in momentum and intensity. The signs exist on a continuum in which one extreme overlaps another. The system encourages us to play things out on this stage as a war between factions when in reality, it is a war we wage against ourselves under the Law of Polarity. The Omen is experienced on each side of the polar spectrum and if one is not aware that each extreme cannot exist without the … Continue reading THE OMEN. Do you see the signs?
The struggle for individuality is real. It’s a sad irony that it persists only because we judge others and wage war against those we don’t understand. When we become threatened by the individual whose expressions run counter to anything we like or comprehend, it is easy for some of us to condemn them for it. In turn, we are paid back by having to struggle with a desire to express our own nature, one that has become repressed and buried so as to avoid a backlash that we know exists. We know it exists because we’ve taken part in … Continue reading The Truth About Individuality
These days hatred is expressed much more openly, loudly and without thinking than is love. Equilibrium then becomes largely unattainable and imbalance is accepted as normal. Even for those who don’t think in such terms or understand the Law of Polarity, they do feel the effects of imbalance and know that something is not right, that this psychic confusion is not normal. And that something is amiss. Imagine swimming with cement shoes and you desperately want to dive over into the deep end and enjoy the cool water there, but you can’t because you’ve committed to those shoes. You know … Continue reading The Truth About Gang Theory
I love change and have always been the one to feel excitement for anyone moving away or leaving a job, thrilled for the potential that adventurous people create in their lives. Thus, it’s no surprise that I feel some frustration when I see stagnation, lack of movement and fear of change–especially when there is complaining associated with it. One of the greatest illusions concerning change is that it is too often associated with imbalance. We sometimes think that change will throw our whole life out of whack, but the opposite is closer to the truth. Positive change (and we know … Continue reading THE TRUTH ABOUT CHANGE
I think about the word awareness often and it occurred to me that not everyone understands it in the same way. For some it is an ability to discern truth buried amongst falsehoods and misinformation. For others it is something imposed on us by a system that always seems to be telling us about things it thinks we have no clue or opinion about. Unlike grassroots education that can utilize symbolic imagery, awareness is rarely brought about through government or corporate sponsorship and is not about colored ribbons we can pin to our chests or rubber bracelets that tell everyone … Continue reading The Truth About Awareness
Virtue is undefiled purity. It is a gift of love. It is a gift imparted to those who feel acts of kindness and empathy. Virtue resides in the heart of man, not his brain. You see, virtue is not a determination of what you consider to be ‘good’, virtue is just doing it without thinking of its rewards or how it might benefit others. The truth about virtue is most easily accessed by looking at what it is not. Virtue is not about seeking! It is not about trying to find the most obscure and disenfranchised person to hold up … Continue reading The Truth About Virtue
Hysteria is a manufactured mental disorder that preys on the minds of those easily influenced by suggestion. Disorder and confusion are not by-products of hysteria, but causes of it. Schemes that create insecurity are inoculated into susceptible minds by those who prey on the weak. The planted ideas germinate and the result is a paralysis of dread and fear that prompts those under its spell to respond to life like a sputtering chainsaw. Repetition plays a major role in establishing a foothold of dread and angst in a victim of hysteria. They are battered and attacked at every turn with … Continue reading The Truth About Hysteria
This morning I went to Youtube and my account was logged out so I was seeing the site as it is presented to anyone going there for the first time. None of my followed channels or interests showed up, just the stuff that they want to impose on whoever goes to the site. No surprise that the hand-picked offerings were pure distraction and vapid uselessness. But among the very mainstream and overhyped timewasters were a number of channels and topics devoted to Role Play. At first I found this odd that it should factor so high up on their programming … Continue reading The Truth About Role Play
