Winter Solstice: Return of the Light
Since ancient times, magnetic guidelines/time lines such as equinoxes, solstices, and full moons, have provided spiritual “tune in” focuses in order to resonate with natural laws both for personal transformation and planetary changes. Winter Solstice is a potent and psychic time to join together for “active” prayer and deep felt meditation into mystery. There is a spiritual summons, above the collective illusion, to return to ourselves, our true path at the darkest time of year and our history.
Hopi Prophecy: “When earthquakes, floods, hailstorms, drought, and famine will be the life of everyday, the time will have then come for the return to the true path.”
Yes. The darkest hour is always right before the dawn. As inner and outer reflect, it might be wise to look into our darkness before the Return of the Light. Acknowledging that when we seek to control our lives by splitting our hearts and minds, we pay a great price for so called protection/security. To keep chaos, enemies, strangers, and death away; we also, close the door to dancing stars, friends, God/Goddess, Life! Lets look deeper instead of falling back into unconsciousness.
Osho (The Mustard Seed )” A religious man transforms himself, but the transformation is possible only if you drop the fictions... When you take something to become unconscious the wish to die is there-because unconsciousness is temporary death. Whenever you want to be unconscious you want to die. A deep urge to die is in you, otherwise you would start moving toward the heights... Wars will exist because they are a deep will to die... A religious man is one who becomes alert that a deep death wish is hidden inside.”
“To be” is painful. “To not be” seems to be bliss. So we often use matter to go unconscious with shopping, eating, drinking, sustenance, loosing ourselves in crowds and movements, family dramas and the like during this most subtle and psychic time of year. It is fascinating in this death wishing of unconscious behavior, it is shown statistically and thru testimonies that a natural or man made Crisis is usually the way we wake up. We then awaken to our greater attributes such as compassion, humility, and love for each other and Mother Earth. I ask, why do we seem to need a crisis to wake up? Perhaps, because in such unconscious density suffering can be felt/experienced consciously without much work. By working harder to stay conscious might we avert personal and planetary crisis? Indeed one reflects the other. This I am aware of in my work with the earth. Further, nothing awakens the dead like Death itself! Lets embrace the Death angel as a natural and necessary force for our transformation. We can also, use matter consciously simply by “breathing and feeling” it all in our bodies.
We have an opportunity Now to be respondable to the forces/powers (also called angels) by joining together in groups and tuning into the “unified field”. We can participate in transforming ourselves, depleted environments, and conflicts within and without. This year I am inspired by the sacred technology of Gregg Braden’s active prayer as revealed in his best selling book The Isaiah Effect. If you wish to check out an easy read for a perceptual focus before Dec.21 his web site is greggbraden.net. Click onto Lost Mode of Prayer. I am playing with this sacred technology this year in a Circle here in Idyllwild.Feel free to tune in with a group or individually.Lets work some magic!
Peace in body, peace in thoughts, peace in feeling.
Yes. Is the beginning... HO!
