IN THE CREATOR CORE OF ALL
THERE ARE NO DIVISIONS
POLARIZATIONS ARE PART OF THE DANCE
EVENTUALLY RETURNING TO THE GREAT NOTHING/EVERYTHING
ALL IS HONOURED
but allow them their own journey of death and rebirth.
Seek refuge not in love’s forms,
but in the field of love itself, that which never comes and goes.
For this is what you are.

When we forget our true nature,
we depend on the rules of others
and become their willing slaves.
From Tao Te Ching, Chapter 72
The leader who needs obedience
is a ruler, a monarch,
who imposes laws and regulations.
This regulation creates a sense of safety
in the minds of the ruled,
so they willingly abandon
their own wild and authentic nature.
A ruler’s motives might be good,
but the spirit of the ruled
can’t help but be diminished.
A leader kindles the people’s spirits
and helps them express and fulfill
their own destiny.
We have been taught for so many generations
to be afraid of our true nature,
that we can’t imagine ever trusting it.
This fear of self is what makes us so vulnerable
to the agendas of power-seeking people.
It is also what keeps us trapped in a paradigm of society that no longer works.
Lao-Tzu was essentially a “cooperative anarchist”
- one who believed that human beings were intrinsically capable of directing their own community life without the need for structured authority.
It seems utopian and fanciful to us today,
and it seemed so in Lao-Tzu’s day as well.
Yet his words still resonate more than two millennia later.
They vibrate a string deep within the human spirit
that sings to us and tells us that we have lost our way;
that we have surrendered something precious in the name of comfort and safety.
Can we find it and reclaim it?
I think we can,
because our current paradigm is collapsing and
our authentic nature is patiently waiting to assist us.
When they lose their sense of awe,
people turn to religion.
When they no longer trust themselves,
they begin to depend upon authority.
Therefore the Master steps back
so that people won't be confused.
He teaches without a teaching,
so that people will have nothing to learn.
Tao Te Ching
Stephen Mitchell Translation
for # 72 Tao Te Ching
Therefore the Master steps back:
He doesn't act as guru or messiah,
because he doesn't, want to keep people dependent on him,
and thus spiritually immature.
When people start to treat him like a holy man,
he nips their adoration in the bud
and points them to their inner messiag.
people will have nothing to learn:
They just need to unlearn.

A SHIFT IN CONSCIOUSNESS
All twelve zodiac signs are divided into three main categories made up of four signs each. These are called Quadruplicities or Qualities and are made of the Cardinal (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) and Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces).
The Mon today enters the Fixed Sign of social Aquarius in preparation for reaching Fullness on Monday. The pace of change in our human experience continues to accelerate. We are being propelled towards a mysterious date with destiny. I believe we can look forward to a positive shift in human consciousness. The key is to look within yourself and ask for guidance.
The real answers will not come from our politicians.
They will come from a spiritual font of wisdom within yourself.
You have the power to do great things.
Like a flock of birds that can change direction in a split second in unison,
human consciousness is preparing to do the same.
It's okay to be shaky
It’s okay to be shaky, to not know anymore, and to allow your heart to break. To fall to the ground and bear witness to the reality that life was never going to turn out the way you thought it would. It’s just too wild, too creative, and too devastatingly magic for all that.
Rather than spin from the death as if it were a defeat, with your breath as your guide, travel inside. There are jewels hidden there, filled with meaning, with pure feeling, and with relentless outrageousness of love as it erupts into the world of time and space.
You will never find your life’s purpose by way of a frantic, urgent, exhausting search. Your life’s purpose is to live. Fully. To participate, to take a risk, to slow down and see the signs, to commune with the colors, the songs of the birds, and to listen to the intelligence of the stars.
The forms that love take are by nature arising and dissolving in each moment, for this is the way of form.
But love itself is that which never comes and goes.
You never know what form love will choose to take in the future, for there is no love in the future.
Love is only now.
You will never be able to resolve or pin down the movement of love as it is infinitely creative
and at all times unfolding into greater wholeness.
If you become too fused with a specific form you believe you need love to take, your heart will inevitably break when love obliterates that form for something new, which it always will. This shattering is the great gift of form. This dissolving and reorganization is a special kind of grace that the mind cannot know. But the heart knows. The body knows.
Before you seek to “heal” your heartbreak via spiritual process, turn to your heart and ask if it truly wishes to be mended. For this breaking is sacred, sent here so that new forms may emerge.
Be grateful for the forms of love while they appear, but allow them their own journey of death and rebirth. Seek refuge not in love’s forms, but in the field of love itself, that which never comes and goes. For this is what you are.
Today may not be the day where answers will come, but to let your heart break open to the vastness of the question.
