Discourses and musings from a second Saturn return

Tolles Ego

I will most likely be posting exerpts from Eckhart Tolle’s new book, A New Earth because I just love it!!! Sue

“There is nothing that strengthens the ego more than being right. Being right is identification with a mental position – a perspective, an opinion, a judgment, a story. For you to be right, of course, you need someone else to be wrong, and so the ego loves to make wrong in order to be right. In other words: You need to make others wrong to get a stronger sense of who you are. Not only a person, but also a situation can be made wrong through complaining and reactivity, which always implies that “this should not be happening.” Being right places you in a position of imagined moral superiority in relation to the person or situation that is being judged and found wanting. It is that sense of superiority the ego craves and through which it enhances itself.” -Tolle in A New Earth

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini

Here we go for the next 3 weeks (June 19) we have an opportunity to “catch up” so to speak, on many unfinished projects. I love to clean out closets during this time.

Swimming against the stream is never a good idea unless you want to be tested and struggle and possibly fail……Mercury retrograde doesn’t have to be filled with breakdowns and difficulties………….flow with the stream and do what there is energy for.

My favorite astrologer just posted this on his blog:

Over the years many have asked me what Mercury retrograde is good for. We know it’s supposedly NOT a good time to sign contracts, make purchases of electronics or major moves or decisions, and we are supposed to hang out with the energies, seeing that things may not be as they appear, and so on. That said, there is much that a Mercury retrograde period is good for, such as traveling, research, and other important things.

I have found that as long as one is flexible, retrograde travel is actually a good thing. So is research, reflection, review, rehearsals, and returns from the past. It’s also a great time for reconnecting with old friends, finding people and things thought lost, It’s a great time to explore possibilities, as long as no definitive decisions are made and options kept open, since they are usually modified or reversed later on.

It’s great for doing things left undone or neglected from previous times. It’s good for resuming something from the past, as long as you remember that it may not look like it used to, or requires a different approach than before. It’s also excellent for getting new information and perspective that fills in gaps in understanding or activity, and doing things that seem to go in one direction but lead us to entirely new information and understanding.

We can safely resume things begun in previous retrograde periods, or pick up threads we once set aside while other things developed. It’s an energy that favors building in a time lag in judging or evaluating whatever you’re doing, since retrogrades often show that there are things yet to develop that will ultimately fill in whatever is missing in the present. –Robert Wilkinson ©

Ho Hum

I find myself in a rare state of ho hum. It’s been an interesting spring, one of unknown or not wanting to know, changes and shiftings in the sands of my life. I’m certainly open to some changes in my overall existence but I find that I still want to control those changes and during these times control is being exposed more and more as an illusion. Truly, if I go back to when I firsts started studying Hinduism/Buddhism etc in the late ’60′s, I remember the wise counsel of how all of this is illusion/maia………….and how we aren’t supposed to get trapped in it. I’m trapped in it up to my armpits this spring. Extricating the sticky tentacles of desire, frustration and all of those human ego emotions that lead me right back to the core of I still want control, my big fat ego.
I haven’t figured it out yet, how to give it up, surrender, let go, momentary flashes at best.
So, the universe, in its infinite wisdom, is letting go for me….:>)
Stay tuned, who knows where I’ll land.

Here at the Edge of the Future

Here at the edge of the future it feels both exhilarating and full of dread. Today’s full moon in Scorpio with the Sun in Taurus is called the Wesak Festival or the celebration of the birth and enlightenment of the Buddha. Other planetary aspects at this time call us to throw off all fears and take a leap of faith. Take many leaps of faith with an open heart and a childlike innocence that you will truly fly. You can feel the time ripening……..like watching the veggies in your garden or those green cherries on the tree….soon they will be ready to eat……………..soon you will be ready to fly…………….only by letting go of the old outworn people, places, things will you do this……………….time to clean out the cupboards!

A Rather Defining Moment in History

From TruthOut.org an extremely important article, “The World at 350: A Last Chance for Civilization” by Bill McKibben originally posted at TomDispatch.com that outlines what confronts us all. The coming crises will definitely unify many as the selfish deluded polluters grab all they can and governments continue to bloviate about trivialities while coastlines flood, superstorms sweep our Earth (checked the news lately?), and major upheaval transforms our physical, emotional, and mental reality.

If you think that sounds dramatic or exaggerated, consider a few pieces from the article:

Hansen cites six irreversible tipping points – massive sea level rise and huge changes in rainfall patterns, among them – that we’ll pass if we don’t get back down to 350 soon; and the first of them, judging by last summer’s insane melt of Arctic ice, may already be behind us…. Instead of slowing down, we’re pouring on the coal, quite literally. Two weeks ago came the news that atmospheric carbon dioxide had jumped 2.4 parts per million last year – two decades ago, it was going up barely half that fast….

And suddenly, the news arrives that the amount of methane, another potent greenhouse gas, accumulating in the atmosphere, has unexpectedly begun to soar as well. Apparently, we’ve managed to warm the far north enough to start melting huge patches of permafrost and massive quantities of methane trapped beneath it have begun to bubble forth.

Here’s the thing. Hansen didn’t just say that, if we didn’t act, there was trouble coming; or, if we didn’t yet know what was best for us, we’d certainly be better off below 350 ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. His phrase was: “… if we wish to preserve a planet similar to that on which civilization developed.” A planet with billions of people living near those oh-so-floodable coastlines. A planet with ever more vulnerable forests. (A beetle, encouraged by warmer temperatures, has already managed to kill 10 times more trees than in any previous infestation across the northern reaches of Canada this year. This means far more carbon heading for the atmosphere and apparently dooms Canada’s efforts to comply with the Kyoto Protocol, already in doubt because of its decision to start producing oil for the U.S. from Alberta’s tar sands.)

Here’s one of several punch lines to this article:

“And we have, at best, a few years… to reverse course. Here’s the Indian scientist and economist Rajendra Pachauri, who accepted the Nobel Prize on behalf of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change last year (and, by the way, got his job when the Bush administration, at the behest of Exxon Mobil, forced out his predecessor): “If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment.” -The Aquarius Papers website

After I read the above I picked up a book I’ve started reading by Eckhart Tolle called “A New Earth”. Reading this book gets me out of the fear the above info can inspire.

“Is humanity ready for a transformation of consciousness, an inner flowering so radical and profound that compared to it the flowering of plants, no matter how beautiful, is only a pale reflection? Can human beings lose the density of their conditioned mind structures and become like crystals or precious stones, so to speak, transparent to the light of consciousness?

The possibility of such a transformation has been the central message of the great wisdom teachings of humankind.”

He goes on to say a little further in the book, “But the ego is destined to dissolve, and all its ossified structures, whether they be religious or other institutions, corporations, or governments, will disintegrate from within, no matter how deeply entrenched they appear to be. The most rigid structures, the most impervious to change, will collapse first.” (remember communism?)

“When faced with a radical crisis, when the old way of being in the world, of interacting with each other and with the realm of nature doesn’t work anymore, when survival is threatened by seemingly insurmountable problems, an individual life form or a species will either die or become extinct or rise above the limitations of its condition through an evolutionary leap.

Responding to a radical crisis that threatens our very survival-this is humanity’s challenge now.”

So folks, better start walking, growing a garden, find out where your water supply is. The great thing about the human spirit I think is that old phrase, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”!

The Danger of Soy & Milk

I am always interested in food. The way it is grown, how it is harvested, packaged, cooked etc. A few years ago I sent out documentation on what the dairy industry (in cahoots with the Government) did about Milk being something children should have 3 times a day. All a big scam to make dairy corporations more money. And it worked! Most of us bought it sight unseen without any research. Now all that research is everywhere and most people are aware of the harmful side effects of consuming gross amounts of dairy. (I’ve attached that from the blog below)

Looks like the soybean people are now doing the very same thing. Lots and lots of research available, just Google it. I found this little paragraph at www.mercola.com very interesting

The Dangers of Soy

No matter what you may have heard, soy is not a health food. There is a 70 billion dollar industry that funds many studies attempting to show that soy has benefits so that you will consume it. Their goal is to sell more domestic soy. Their goal is NOT your health. Pregnant women in particular should avoid soy completely, with the exception of fermented soy products which have greatly lowered phytoestrogen content.

Telling the Truth
January 23rd, 2008 | Category: Dailies

Telling the truth, you don’t hear much of that anymore, especially on TV. Just watched a commercial about how good milk is for you. Well, maybe if you lived on a farm and your cows didn’t get antibiotics or steroids and who knows what else they get now, and you could digest the protein (which most people have a hard time with the very large molecule in the added Vitamin D, especially small children), then maybe, that milk might be good for you. The point is, there is no general panacea here and we are being lied to all the time.
It could be very useful for each individual to do a little research into their own health instead of being blindly led down the garden path, so to speak. Through a little bit of research then the lies could be exposed and living more in the truth could be available for all.
It certainly is food for thought.

Living Consciously
November 06th, 2006 | Category: Dailies, Miscellaneous

In 1967 or so, when I began an alternative life style in earnest, eating well and responsibly meant that the food was grown organically and locally as much as possible and also that no part of the process harmed anyone.

Since that time much has been published and accomplished in regards to whole food etc, but much has not. Indeed some things have become horribly worse.

That milk piece! What is it that people think they are getting when they drink milk? Certainly not calcium; most humans don’t digest cows milk very well; goats milk is better and even some sheep’s milk, but not from cows. And the law states that a certain amount of pus is acceptable in the final ultra-pasteurized product-yuck! The next time you pick up a dairy product think about this.

I was recently speaking with a local dairy farmer (25 cows) and what he told me about the dairy factories is still reverberating in my ears. Cows injected with chemicals is one thing, but having their uterus’s ripped out and placed in stalls they don’t get to leave until they die and then they are ground up into hamburger. The cows are very stressed out on milking machines pulling gallons of milk a day till they die.

Do you want to be a part of that violent process that treats animals as if they were unimportant? If not, and you would continue to drink milk/cheese etc., find a local dairy farmer, visit the farm, see how the animals are treated.

Rocket Fuel in 93% of Lettuce and Milk
November 03rd, 2006 | Category: Miscellaneous

The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has released its long anticipated report on the human health effects of perchlorates, a byproduct of rocket fuel. Perchlorates, which are a common pollutant near military sites, have recently BEEN FOUND IN DRINKING WATER IN 35 STATES AS WELL AS IN 93 PERCENT OF LETTUCE AND MILK. Along with the report, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set drinking water standards indicating that perchlorates are roughly TEN TIMES MORE TOXIC to humans than the Department of Defense has been claiming. Perchlorates can inhibit thyroid function, cause birth defects and lower IQs, and are considered particularly dangerous to children. Monitoring wells across the U.S. are now finding perchlorate levels as high as 30,000 times what the EPA indicates would be safe exposure.

To avoid liability, the Pentagon is currently pressuring Congress to pass a new bill that states the military does not have to adhere to any environmental regulations (as a matter of national security). Please take 30 seconds to send a quick online letter urging your Congressperson to protect the nation’s food and water by reducing perchlorate pollution.

Take action and learn more about this issue here: http://www.organicconsumers.org/perchlorate.htm

Milk-Get over it!
September 19th, 2006 | Category: Miscellaneous

Back in the 1950’s when the Dairy Association paid big bucks to the government to get out the word that children needed milk for strong bones, we have been led down the corporate path of false advertising. Most people cannot even digest the ultra-pasteurized, steroid laden, antibiotic filled and now bovine injections causing cancer after years of prolonged use. To say nothing of allergies, sinus problems, digestive problems that occurs when the undigested dairy turns into mucous in the body-gross!!! Milk, get over it!!! (and cheese, cottage cheese, cream, half and half, it’s in everything!)

If you haven’t heard this story before,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZYA2zFsCK8

If you have, it bears repeating.

Of course if you are buying un-pasteurized milk from a local farmer who loves his animals and lets them roam in the fields, doesn’t feed them poisons etc. and you are making your own yogurt with lots of friendly bacteria and so on, you may be one of the few that can actually derive some benefit from the real deal, You will not find this type of milk in any store…..there really isn’t much profit in it.

If it’s calcium you are looking for…….foods and herbs that are rich in that are: salmon (with bones in), sardines, seafood, dark green leafy vegetables (kale, collards, dandelion greens, mustard greens, bok choy etc.), almond, asparagus, black strap molasses, brewer’s yeast, broccoli, cabbage, carob, dulce, figs, filberts, goat’s milk, kelp, oats, prunes, sesame seeds, real yogurt, alfalfa, burdock root, cayenne, chamomile, chickweed, chicory, dandelion, eyebright, fennel seed, fenugreek, flaxseed, hops, horsetail, lemongrass, mullein, nettle, oat straw, paprika, parsley, peppermint, plantain, raspberry leaves, red clover, rose hips, yellow dock.

If it’s Vitamin D you are looking for: exposure (face and arms) to the sun for 15 minutes 3 times a week is an effective way to get all the vitamin D your body needs. Food sources: fish liver oils, fatty saltwater fish, eggs, dandelion greens, cod liver oil, butter, liver, oatmeal, salmon, sardines, sweet potatoes, tuna, and vegetable oils. Herbs: alfalfa, horsetail, nettle, parsley.

Eat better!! Love, Sue

Happy Mother’s Day

A Happy Mother’s Day to everyone! This day honors all mothers everywhere, and their mothers, and their grandmothers back to the beginning of time. It has an interesting history and intention which has nothing to do with the modern commercial form of this celebration of mothers. In fact, it is truly a day that calls for pacifism and disarmament.

Though there were ancient celebrations dedicated to mothers and mothering, modern Mother’s Day arose out of several historical antecedents in the US. Anna Reeve Jarvis began her “Mother’s Day Work Clubs” during and after our own very bloody and cruel Civil War, beginning as health care for soldiers on both sides, as well as a reconciliation force afterwards.

It briefly came to be a nationally recognized day through the efforts of “The “Mother’s Day” antiwar observances founded by Julia Ward Howe in 1870-1873, and continued as a regional phenomenon for years afterwards. According to Wikipedia:

Julia Ward Howe is sometimes claimed as the “founder of Mother’s Day,” implying that Julia Ward Howe’s June 2nd occasion and Anna Jarvis’ second-Sunday-in-May event are the same thing. It is even suggested that an antiwar and feminist holiday was co-opted by the forces of sentimentality, tradition, and Hallmark. But although Mother’s Day was celebrated in eighteen cities in 1873, it did not take root. It continued in Boston for about ten years under Howe’s personal financial sponsorship, then died out.

Julia Ward Howe’s Mother’s Day, celebrated on June 2nd, was first proclaimed around 1870 by Julia Ward Howe’s Mother’s Day Proclamation, and Howe called for it to be observed each year nationally in 1872. As originally envisioned, Howe’s “Mother’s Day” was a call for pacifism and disarmament by women. The original Mother’s Day Proclamation was as follows:

Arise then…women of this day!

Arise, all women who have hearts!

Whether your baptism be of water or of tears!

Say firmly:

“We will not have questions answered by irrelevant agencies,

Our husbands will not come to us, reeking with carnage,

For caresses and applause.

Our sons shall not be taken from us to unlearn

All that we have been able to teach them of charity, mercy and patience.

We, the women of one country,

Will be too tender of those of another country

To allow our sons to be trained to injure theirs.

From the voice of a devastated Earth a voice goes up with

Our own. It says: “Disarm! Disarm!

The sword of murder is not the balance of justice.

Blood does not wipe our dishonor,

Nor violence indicate possession.

As men have often forsaken the plough and the anvil

At the summons of war,

Let women now leave all that may be left of home

For a great and earnest day of counsel.

Let them meet first, as women, to bewail and commemorate the dead.

Let them solemnly take counsel with each other as to the means

Whereby the great human family can live in peace…

Each bearing after his own time the sacred impress, not of Caesar,

But of God -

In the name of womanhood and humanity, I earnestly ask

That a general congress of women without limit of nationality,

May be appointed and held at someplace deemed most convenient

And the earliest period consistent with its objects,

To promote the alliance of the different nationalities,

The amicable settlement of international questions,

The great and general interests of peace.

(Early “Mother’s Day” was mostly marked by women’s peace groups. A common early activity was the meeting of groups of mothers whose sons had fought or died on opposite sides of the American Civil War.)

The present incarnation of Mom’s Day started in 1908, promoted by Anna Jarvis, the daughter of the earlier Civil War efforts. West Virginia recognized it in 1910, Woodrow Wilson signed it into law in 1914, and the rest, as “they” say, is history.

All history (or in this case, herstory) ;-) aside, I tend to put my focus on all my female friends who are mothers, all my female relations, all those who preceded them, into the Great Mother, Divine Mother, the all-encompassing ocean of infinite compassion. So I’ll take this day (and every day!) to offer my most heartfelt salutations to The Great Mother in all her manifestations.

Aum namah Mahaboddhisattva! The entire world is forgiven and renewed with each breath of the gentle, vast, and all-nourishing Great Mother. We are all brought to our highest Self through this infinitely powerful, wise, loving, and intelligent all pervasive Divine Feminine Force eternally embodying that which redeems the promise of the victory of light over darkness, truth over falsehood, good over evil, peace over war, and love over fear. Aum Namah Shivaya!

Threshold

Imagine, if you will, that you are approaching a threshold. As you draw nearer, you intensify, quicken. Every part of you wonders, in a deep and unfathomable way, what is approaching. Yet IT is now approaching, and we are approaching it even as IT is approaching us. The quickening intensifies; we are perplexed, amused, confounded, spurred, and being moved in deep ways toward even deeper mysteries that are beyond description.

It beckons. It allures, It never seduces, but always attracts. We quicken in the parts of our bodies, minds, feelings that resonate to the greater possibilities of what we know is approaching, with all its awesome majesty and fierce indomitability. We stand before the Throne, upright and alive, ready, willing, and able to accept the possibilities. We are Eternal. We are Love. We are Wisdom. We are Intelligence. We are Power. We are Immortality.

We wonder. How can we, as mere mortals who are Eternal, ever possibly rise to the occasion that seemingly is presenting ITself before our very eyes, hearts, imagination, and sensations? Yet we cannot refuse the magnetic current any more than we can move in any other direction. We are being pulled toward an inevitability of that which is drawing us to center ITself, the Cosmic Process of Evolution, a One-Way street if ever there was one.

So arise, you who seek. Be positive in generating good cheer. Welcome the advent of the unimaginable. We have never known what is to come, let alone what is, in a million lifetimes. And back then we were in a totally different head space, so relax. Once upon a time we had more faith, more imagination, more willingness to dance with all that is and will be.

Accept the Grand Mystery of our Quest as it presents itself in a whole new world, a whole new reality, where we will find new words, new works, new descriptors, new transistors that will take us from the world of the jet engine evolving to the photon wing into realms that will require new names, new forms, new focus, new ways to warm up our wayward consciousness returning to center. -Robert Wilkinson

Struggle

Our lives flow between birth and death and the experience of many struggles. Life itself is a struggle. This world in fact is a battlefield like that of Kurukshetra in the Bhagavad Gita. Since we live in an unbearable age of darkness, known as the “Kali Yuga,” we can’t tell which direction struggle will be coming from. So, whoever’s born into this world must be a warrior.

Reflections on the Shifting Tides of Astrology

I have been a student of astrology since I first learned of it in the early ‘60’s. I have watched the tides of life energy shift and change and compared that to how the planets move in the heavens. It has always excited me.

The study of a person’s chart is thrilling for me……just to see the possibilities that are there for growth/change/happiness and the great gifts that come from challenging times; patience, strength, fortitude etc. Like a map for life.

There is a “heads up” feel becoming stronger and stronger of late. I could put planetary names on it but if you aren’t into astrology I can just see your eyes glazing over!

So, I will say then, get busy. Quit looking in the same old directions………take a breath……..steal away to a quiet corner and begin to plan something new for yourself. Don’t judge anything that is going on to be hard, crazy, weird, did I say hard? This is the kind of time where miracles are around each corner, but you do have to turn the corner, you do have to pick up the paper, you do have to make that call etc.

Think and plan but mostly dream big first……..then take the steps to move in the direction of your dreams.

“…………. we need to be good surfers, ready to shift our balance as the wave forms shift, and not worry that it makes no sense that the wave is breaking this way or that. The object is not to get tossed off the board while displaying skill and having as much fun as possible in navigating the changes.” Wilkinson

The Answers in the Problems

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the fact that in any challenge that we face, everything we need is right there with us in the situation. The Law of Polarity, one of the Hermetic Laws of the Universe, tells us that a problem cannot exist without its solution.

In fact, when we identify the problem or challenge, we are actually also in the presence of its resolution. We just may not have recognized it yet.

Often a part of the learning and growth that the situation offers comes through turning over rocks or obstacles and looking behind doors or beliefs to discover what is there.

Though the resolution may be cleverly disguised, it is there. So the good news is, when the problem or challenge arises, you are also in close proximity to the resolution. -Seale

Springtime Blessings of Renewal and Change

“It is only when we have the courage to face things exactly as they are, without any self-deception or illusion, that a light will develop out of events, by which the path to success may be recognized.” I Ching, Hexagram 5, Hsu, Waiting (Nourishment)
