Sacred Solstice – Merry Christmas – Happy Holidays

 

Recently I created a calendar, using photos from my sister Marti, and others in my family. It’s very enjoyable to create these, and I’d like to share them with you over the Solstice & Christmas & Holiday season. I hope you enjoy.

Next year I’ll be posting brief blogs whenever there’s one I believe you would enjoy.
I hope you are all doing well and that you have a wonderful season and entry into 2018.

There is an Underworld

I just arrived back home from visiting my newborn granddaughter. There is nothing so precious, so fragile, so ‘straight from heaven’ as a newborn baby. This spark of Divinity has been named Aria. She’s incredibly peaceful right now, sleeping and still in dreamtime, but she opened her eyes and we looked at each other for a moment.

Our grandchildren inherit our efforts, and we have some cleanup work to do for them. People are getting more courageous… have you noticed? Continue reading

Back to the Trinity

While the Yin/Yang symbol seems a great representation of the forces of duality, it implies a third and equal force, and that is flow or movement arising from the relationship of the two. We are in relationship with self, other human beings, other cultures, other human families, the natural world, the world beyond physical form, the Universe, the Creator Force – in relationship with creation.

Let’s consider the relationship flow: active, passive, result or give-receive-outcome. It could switch to receive-give-outcome, or outcome-receive-give and so on. That’s the way I see it anyway, from the perspective that is Ida. I also see it as masculine, feminine and child; mind, heart, and their expression: all of the different ways we have of viewing that Trinity. Continue reading

What’s Happened to Mother?

“The trouble is, once you’ve seen it you can’t unsee it, and once you’ve seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing becomes as political an act as speaking out. Either way, you’re accountable. Another world is not only possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day I can hear her breathing.” ~ Arundhati Roy

A few days ago I read a headline that said, “Woman sets husband on fire for raping her seven-year-old daughter.” That puts an image in my mind that I can’t unsee. My first thought… do we have to go this crazy? Continue reading

Déjà vu – Solace Needed

The Dogs of War are at it again. In their craving for power they want Syria, North Korea, Russia, China. They want control of the world, and they are indeed a hungry pack. So how does this looming annihilation affect our children and grandchildren? Are they emotionally and spiritually suffering?

We grandparents had our own experience with war. During the Cuban Missile Crisis I felt the fear that we could all die. I was 16. The next year JFK was assassinated. None of us put two and two together. We believed the official stories, we obeyed the authorities, and if there was dissent we didn’t hear about it. Continue reading

Entering a Sober New Age

Here’s a teaching I’ve heard posited by some in the new age family: The problems, issues, and relationship challenges in life are direct reflections of me. Or in other words: the drama on the outside reflects some ‘I caused it’ drama on the inside of me. I’ve beaten myself up enough over the years asking… “Why did I create that!?” I didn’t. We do co-create, but it is through our response to what is before us.

Here’s another new age teaching that rings true to me: The problems and issues in life are part of the collective consciousness that we are born into, to be a part of, to respond to, and evolve within: it’s the ‘story’ that serves as the framework for our evolutionary journey. In other words, free will within the ‘ever beginning’ story. Continue reading
