Lets be honest here, we all have fears of one sort or the other. Some people acknowledge them and let them go, others become hostage to them and begin to wither on the vine. Fear has great power over us which is why it is used against us 24/7 to keep us going in the direction we are told to go in. Regardless of where you fall on the spectrum of things, fear is always around the next corner waiting for us or to be exploited by the media. This is what the media has become, propagandists helping politicians achieve their agendas. It sucks, it is shameful and sadly it is not going away and so it is we who must make things right.

Fear gets such a bum rap and yet it is needed at times to thrust us along into the unknown or to slow us down to wait out the storm so to speak. In other words, let US use fear not the other way around! Use it to our advantage rather than succumb to it. Everything in life has two sides to the story so why not pick the side of useful and leave behind the side of victim? I remember once years ago wondering how to find what it was I needed to do with my life and I was asked ” What do you love more than you fear and when you find out, go after it”.  It’s interesting to ponder. Think of all the things you fear and avoid at all costs and how powerful they are, but at the same time look at all the things you truly love and believe in and stand up for and you will see great power there as well. Who wins out I guess is our choice.

Why do we give fear so much power over us? After all it is nothing more than  possibilities of what could happen where as loving life is already happening, it is grounding us, pumping us full of strength and yet we so often chose to dwell in the realm of fear. Well for one thing, we are never taught any of this. We are never taught anything about ourselves, our strengths and possibilities, our power, our truth. Instead we live on a steady diet of tv ads that put us down, continually tell us we are damaged in one way or the other, we are shown only negative, violent, malicious stories designed to invoke fear. We are broken down into categories of people in need of changing ourselves in order to be worthy enough to be accepted. If you are not a wealthy one percenter you will never fit in, you will never be accepted, so stop trying! It is not only a waste of your time, you truly do not want to be who they are, disconnected from reality..

That is the game we are playing. Being convinced we are not enough as we are and then we are sent on a lifelong journey of looking for ways to improve ourselves when in actuality, we are just fine the way we are. Fear tells us we are inadequate. Fear tells us we are vulnerable. Fear tells us we have no trust. Fear tells us “keep trying” when we are already whole to begin with. It is time for all of us to stop dabbling in fear and move beyond it so we can regain our courage and strength. We have a battle raging all around us for our minds, so we best ‘USE’ our fears to find a way forward. We need to stop thinking about what we fear and instead think about our strengths and how we can use them. Use fear as a wake up call to change your perspective to a positive one.

We are seeing true fear in the elites who are rapidly disintegrating before our very eyes. It’s their own fault, but they can’t see that. It is so embarrassing to watch the dramas of Washington and think that these angry, ego driven, power-hungry, lying individuals are actually running our country! Shocking. It’s like the principal walked out and left the third grade in charge of running the school. Our priorities are so misguided! Hypocrisy runs Washington these days and it is disgusting to witness what is going on. They don’t even have a clue that they are alienating themselves even further by their actions. They are so driven by their needs and their egos they are blind! Sadly the people are so disengaged at this point who is even listening? This is the void we are meant to be filling! This is why we are here, to bring back morals and decency, to show others what really matters in life and to speak out in favor of evolving together as our next step down the road.

Are we not tired and bored of being tadpoles and wouldn’t we honestly rather lose our tails and become frogs at long last? We have been held here in this sad state of deterioration for long enough. It is time to move up the ladder, to adapt to change and look upon that change with eagerness rather than fear and dread? It is time to stop listening to people tell us who we are meant to be and just be ourselves instead. We are not less than, we are more than, we just haven’t been told. It is very scary and tragic to see how the world is being run and by whom and for what purpose. It surely is not for the good of mankind, but rather for the few. We want ALL people to be equal, to feel worthy, to have purpose and goals and dreams. We are all one species. We were not born with price tags stuck to us according to our value, corporations placed those price tags on us as well as our Government, which really is one in the same!

The country is being divided and torn asunder before our very eyes and yet there is silence! This must stop. If we wish to live a better life we better start fighting for it! Everyday there are a great many insane things happening that are pulling us under, we are drowning in it. Why are we not hearing a lot of noise from the sane side demanding what needs to be done to make things right just as strongly? It’s odd to watch this disparity. We need to be vocal, but not to complain as so many do, but rather to offer new ideas and ways to break free of where we are stuck. We need big thinkers, we need open minds and we need inspiration! It is time to change, but we must have a plan in place for people to follow or they will never go out on the limb of vulnerability. Time to get to work everybody! Somehow we must learn how to not fear change and instead see it as a friend and the next step to where we want to go.

Blessings to all,

The Dog’s Gift

A couple weeks ago we began the year of the dog, which is all about service. It’s hard to think of a greater example of the purity, faithfulness and loyalty of service than the version supplied by this noble creature. When humans serve there’s rarely as pure a form of this act; certain acts of servitude can have questionable motives, such as unwarranted martyrdom, guilt and prurient interests. But the dog’s need to serve sets an example that’s unquestionable, which many of us can learn from.

Can there be a version of this stellar form of serving that’s coming into your ken this year? Might there be a new and evolutionary connection to serving and being served that’s offered to you during this launching of the early Days of the Dog?
This March the element of Air is weakest in the sky, with most planets being in Water and then Fire, and a few in Earth, but almost none in Air. When Air is lacking we tend to lose objectivity and perspective — the key ingredients that Air supplies. The upside of this imbalance is that the stories of the past lose some of their grip on our hearts and minds, as the airy realm of cultural ideas turns loosens up, making way for the advent of new stories.
By Lynne Ciccone

If we can muster up stories of heart, soul, and regeneration to replace the profit-driven tales of a decaying culture, we can use March’s lack of Air to imagine new ways of being and new forms of service, in which the Law of Love is the dream we serve rather than the corporate-owned governments bent on stealing our resources and taking over our world. And when the love you feel is the dream you serve, you gain a great secret of a life that serves you as well as the rest of the universe.

Remembering What Needs To Be…

This will  be a post to hopefully remind us all of where our true strength lies! Between social media, smart phones, and television, most arguments people are having with one another these days are based on what outside influence has put in their heads. Few people stop anymore and ask themselves if what they are told could actually be true. We just grab hold of what we’ve been told is truth, tuck it away in our minds and keep on going. No questions asked,. This way of living has got to stop. It is incredibly dangerous and we are already in enough trouble to begin with. Look at all the ‘special counsels’ being called for in Washington because of dishonesty, lies and manipulation. How much more do we need to hear and see before we finally bring back healthy skepticism, demand the truth and think for ourselves again?

There was a time when humans used their senses to make their way through life. They felt things, sensed things, saw things and somehow just knew things, because they were solidly connected to the world. They knew when the seasons changed not by  a calendar, but by what they knew to be true. They were so connected to the animal kingdom, the animals often told them what was going on because the animals always ‘knew’. The lifestyles we live today have pulled us away from our innate knowing, we are no longer solidly connected to the world or to ourselves. That deep inner voice that so often spoke to us has gone quiet. We do not listen to it, we are too distracted.  Gone too are the days when we trusted in our knowing enough to take care of ourselves. We didn’t need anybody else propping us up telling us what to do, say or think. Now it seems we can’t even tie our shoes without being told  how to.

It is time to think seriously about what is happening to our world. Are we going to sit by  and let the world implode or are we going to pull ourselves up and set to work getting back to being connected to all that is?  Have we not figured out yet that the media is spinning lies, pushing us in directions they are told to push us in for whatever reasons? The nightly news is no longer what it used to be. The days of Walter Cronkite are long gone. News is NOT there to bring us up to date on what is going on in the world, they are there to sway our beliefs, to make us see something going on the way they want us to see it when in fact something very different is occurring. No, it is time to STOP listening to what we are told and begin to bring back our abilities to sense and know the world around us for ourselves through raw experience. It is time to put down the ‘dumb’ phones ( they are not smart, they are dumbing us down and messing with our minds!) and start paying attention!

Let us revive that ‘knowing’ within  and start to live our lives again by experiencing it for ourselves, not through what somebody else says.

Blessings to all,

I was reading a piece written by Monica Lewinsky on the 20th anniversary of her downfall in Washington. It is truly amazing what an impact that had on her life. She got black balled while good old Slick Willy went on to fame and fortune.  Sadly that is how everything in Washington ends up, There is no fairness or justice. But that is not why I wanted to write this post. At the very end of her article she put in a Mexican proverb I found most appropriate for where we find ourselves today. The mascot for these times so to speak. Here is the proverb:

They tried to bury us; They didn’t know we were seeds.

Yes, we must think of ourselves as seeds and now the spring is upon us and it is time to begin to push ourselves upward through all the dirt and begin our journey up to the light. The dirt and filth they buried us under was the perfect medium for us to begin to grow in. Our seed pods have split open and our tender green shoots have begun to wiggle out into the sunshine. This is our time my fellow seeds to extend ourselves outward and upward and begin our glorious transformation into whatever beautiful flower or weed we wish to be.  Make up your mind and go for it!

Blessings to all,
