When Trees Fall – Life Cycles

Embracing Life’s Cycles Through Dryadic Wisdom

Last wAfternoon Tree Shadoweek I released from my life, a former partner of 20 years. He was one of those people that filled space with his eclectic presence while sharing darting glimpses of an impish nature. Although we differed in taste of a variety of things, we did share a unique perspective of life; it’s bigger than you experience, while small in your mind. Our life experience is where we gather the bricks we lay to define our perspective, to limit interaction, and create the windows and doors for future experience.

As I reminisce over events passed, determine the destiny of possessions no longer needed, I see the culmination of an individual’s evolution of philosophy, expressions and dreams. Spread throughout a realm of personal domain, books, music, art and day-to-day living provides a macrocosmic viewing of a person. And yet, each piece offers a microcosmic viewing of the individual inside themselves.

The process of cathartic release through cleaning and clearing of once prized possessions, has brought to my attention, the way I gather and collect the ‘things’ of my mind’s desirous habits; my music, art, foods and belongings; all things to adorn my castle of being. And I have begun to question the truth of my choices. Not a judgement of its beauty, but of my intention for obtainment. Why this? Why that?

One of the great lessons of living and walking on our Celestial Mother’s belly, is to remember that ourFern Growth on Tree organic avatar, the form we wonder about in – that truthfully belongs to her – isn’t the one that collects, gathers and possesses anything; it is our mind-personality. Our body could care less about that Andy Warhol poster, Sprig-green wall color, or the style of furniture and fixtures we proudly show to friends and family. It has no concept of whether this food is trendy, tastes good or looks nice; again it is the mind-personality that discerns. For somewhere at some time, we experienced something, gave it value and gathered into our realm of living.

Our mind, divinely woven into a three pound collective of cellular weaving and winding, is divided into two halves joined with a dance hall in between. Here is where we learn to merge the dance steps with the feeling of dancing; the form with function, the linear with organic. It is the library of our life, carefully catalogued into various sections and departments, an on-demand system for the personality to reach into at a moment’s notice to respond and discern the ‘what happens next’ part of our life. Our fiber-optic network which we rely upon for lightning-fast response, streams as much as possible and as fast as possible, all sensory input associated with the summoning issued. Problem is if the file is empty it, grabs the next option available, leaving us with a bewildered expression.

Tree Rings wit MossHis passing also brings into focus the cycles of our life. We are born into freedom and it slowly recedes from us through that pavlovian process we acquiesce into from preschool onward. If we are lucky, if our friends and family allow our individuality to freely expand and express, we grow wings of empowerment and soar to our Soul’s content.

Tonight is a night of tarot, where I meet my adopted family on the earth-realm, and embrace the spiritual family of my past life connections. While we divine and intuit through the cards, I wonder if he will share his reclaimed freedom and offer insights from the realm of Source’s mansions and gardens. Will I see the major arcana of Death/Rebirth? Or will the Priestess appear showing a return straight up the Tree-of-Life back to Source? Will one of the minor arcana appear such as two-wands, mastery of personal domain, or an archetype such as one of the Thoth Princes showing Tiphareth is his destination and return to that Buddha, Christ, Zen energy of the Solar Son presence. Either way, I am excited to see the outcome; to use the cards as a tool to learn more, experience deeper, and celebrate that joyous cycle of returning to the IAM before returning back for a new ME.Sun Rays thru Trees

So, to all who are walking through transition, are helping those in transition or consider what the winter of life holds, worry not my friend…here is some dryadic wisdom to help.

We are the human trees that walk the Earth, and as such we they are kindred souls of the four
elements; we are of the fifth. In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Enlil referred to trees as ‘divine beings’ for they are as close to holding a soul as the Natural Order can conceive. We are the Solar presence of the human-tree; four forces using the four elements for expression, powered by the Sun of the Son of Source. We are the Sons and Daughters of the Cosmos, also divine beings.

So remember….

  • All seeds carry the unabridged blueprint from time immemorial, so do you through your genetic material and more importantly your Akashic records ~
  • All saplings reach for the sun, embrace the moon, dance in the wind, and weather storms, they are built for living, so are you, you just might have forgotten how powerful and wondrous you are ~
  • A tree or forest does not compete with itself or each other, they weave and reweave for stability and continuity, so can you be the master-weaver of your life-fabric of expression ~
  • Trees honor their presence through the lust to express, without question, without worry, the final outcome is the gift they share when they release, so know you die daily and rebirth in each morning – a new day of potential presence ~
  • When a tree falls, they actually surrender to the Great Mother, it is a celebration and all of its knowing, recorded in the cellular structure of its heartwood, is released into the archives of the grand matrix of Earth, so will you share your archived experience with Source and the grand matrix of the Hue-Man forest ~
  • All trees are connected through the network of expressive presence, they do not understand separation, only connection, so remember, none of us are alone, ever; your Soul will never abandon you – sing to it, dance with it, wake it up and shout IAM together!

When Towers Crumble and Bridges Fall…

The Tower - Card #17

Tower Card XVI, Thoth Deck

 

 

When Bridges Fall and Towers Crumble…

Walking the Path of the Tower Card, Major Arcana – Thoth Deck

The world is walking through an amazing, yet painful and rapid process of healing, renovation and restoration. This involves all of us; the Earth, her children and ‘We the Humans’; the ones who tread where Angels fear to follow. Together yet individually, we must go into the night; the deep jungle of our hearts and minds to unearth the hoarded secrets of the self and set free the skeletons of our past. But this is not for the faint of heart. It’s not for trend or to dust off the ego’s furniture; oh no, this is the deep scouring. This is the reformatting of the hard-drive of our hearts and mind/personality. Here we dump old programs, rewrite the wetware of labels and definitions of all things outside of our self. This my friends is where the rubber meets the road, because this is for the serious trekker. This journey requires a shamanistic dive into the lower realm where the caves are dark, the ground wet and damp. Here you meet the shadows of You and embrace the suffering and sorrows to understand them in order to reconcile and walk again in your inner peace and integrity.

 For this is the TOWER card, number sixteen which rolls into number seven, Netzach the Sephira where we learn Victory. Here is where the sevens of the deck share their knowledge and offer the energetics of learning about Love, Feelings & Instinct, Nature, the Arts and The Group Mind. It actively sends forth the call for work in the Astral Triangle, where we form the thoughts we bring into manifest in the physical realm of Assiah. But it is also the path of PE, with the fiery Mars energy shown in colors of scarlet, orange and yellow, and the black darkness of the North. This path is where you where you find the “gateways of the soul” (The Qabalistic Tarot – Robert Wang). PE means ‘mouth’, the gateway where life enters and death exits. This is where we express our ideas and desires. For words are sounds, and sound shifts frequency. In the card, the all-seeing-eye of Horus perceives all and shines forth its knowledge of awareness while the mouth of PE burns the dross of the unnecessary chafe, leaving the edifying kernels of life giving wheat. These are the building blocks for what will remain as a solid foundation of You. As the tower stands alone, so do each of us, set into the landscape of our choosing, and here we must break down the walls and constructs of what no longer assists us in preparation for the soul’s journey for higher understanding and life experience. Through this process, we become victorious, which means we have walked through trials and tribulations, and we rise again like the phoenix to rebuild the new pyramid that will last well into your future, in strength and empowerment; but only if you are courageous, and honest enough to walk with faith and trust, without the compass of past world definition.

As we each walk through our own ‘dark nights of the soul’, or if you wish, much needed self renovations and restoration, so does the ‘Group Consciousness of Human-kind’. Each of us, are part of the whole, and as such we individually and together chart the course of the whole. Through each of us taking responsibility for our choices to allow old bridges of falsity and imperfections, which we have been struggling to hold together, finally fall into the ruins they belong, we clear the horizon for a new age; a clairsited future. The gilded past of ivory towers and meandering bridges illusions will flicker and fade from our holographic, self-perceived reality game of survival. The old concepts of mental, emotional, physical and spiritual give way to new insights, into the authenticity of the truth of You, covered up beneath the layers of dogma and self-imposed methodology.

The TOWER reminds us that even though the towers tumble and the bridges fall down around us, we are still capable of remaining centered by understanding that the We are not the world, our friends, our family our jobs or what we own. We can’t be them because we observe everything around us; daily. The observer cannot be the observed. Once we release the tether of ‘group consciousness’ and embrace the unique and wondrous inner Sun of our Self, our Solar Self (solar-el, sol-el soul), we can shine forth from the Christ/Buddha center sun of our being. The six pointed center of Tiphareth and of the newness of possibility. This is my dream for each and all of us, together. I accept the challenge of deconstruction to push new life and welcome the fire of the holy spirit to burn away the deadwood, gathered over time; to ignite the flame of inner seeded hope and new growth. I am the Forest and the Tree. And you?

Calling All Cosmic Mariners

From: Upaya.org

From: Upaya.org

The Age of Horus; the next age of awareness and termed the New Age. From fairs, to conferences, book stores to web pages, the past decade plus has resulted in a sea of options, beliefs, institutions and schools. As a result many of you have delved deeply into your selves, cleaned house and lifted your vibrations to include that positive approach that flows and allows for greater manifestation of abundance. But some of you have been caught up in the process and lost site of the purpose of your gifted focus and thus the application thereof. The time is fast approaching when the final shifts of time and space begin to come closer to each other, and thus, the dynamics of shift will be more evident around us.

 

At first all the changes we experienced were gradual and at a less intense expression. Now, time is speeding up, the cosmic sea of change is fast approaching a tempest of movement to complete the journey charted at the beginning of our cyclic life here on the great celestial being we call Mother Earth. Even she is undergoing her final trimester of rebirth. For you familiar with Tarot, The Tower card is in full expression. And all of life is in full shift, including the great mother, Earth. We feel her heaving breaths, her labor pains, and her mood changes as she prepares to complete her cycle. And it is important that each of us become a midwife to each other’s rebirthing as well as our planet. In this way, we become aware that we as the microcosmic are as much a part of the macrocosmic of the universe and the powerful impact of our presence. We truly are quintessential beings operating on many levels.

 

We may be fractals of material expression, but there is no atomic separation between the cells in our bodies any more than we are separate from the universe we journey through. Together, we collectively enhance and augment what is, as well as destruct and take from what is. Our collective presence is part and parcel to what drives the speed at which we all travel. Some are along for the ride, kicking and screaming at the speed of change. Others willingly and almost daringly lean into the wind. But many of us have settled down into our comfy placement, repeatedly following a routine. We accept that change is inevitable, but we are not fully in its participation. But are we…for apathy in all its claimed anonymity, is still an energy; albeit one of stagnation. So we often find ourselves at an impasse, wondering why we are still in one place when our thoughts and dreams are far ahead.

 

Remember, dreams are nothing but energy without motion, they are ideas, and concepts but without the fuel to ‘be’. It is the passion, that fiery ‘lust to be’ that moves mountains of complacency and habit. This is the great work. This is the edge of the Abyss that we lean into without fear or the expectation of result. We must be the change we wish to see, and allow the greater universe, the ‘I AM’ of the Universe, determine the final result. We may be the pen-point that writes the verse, but the ink is the ‘energy that ever was and will ever be, neither created nor destroyed, only transforming.’ And continually transform we must.

 

Right now the world teeters on the edge of shift. The winds of change are beginning to pick-up and each of us is trying to figure out how best to navigate these swells of inner awareness. It is not enough to baton down the hatches and ride it out, this involves our singular AND our collective consciousness to calm the sea around ourselves so that the ‘all’ we experience is as a whole; strong, focused, and with purpose of reaching a new shore of ‘ourselves’…our personal promised land.

 

The best mariners will tell you that it isn’t that gadgets that keep you safe, or focused or knowledgeable. It is the depth of connection to the ‘all that is’ that intuits to you the shifts and changes of the sea. Mariners of the old paths could read the ripples of a breeze on the water, the currents’ flow, and chart by the stars and weather patterns. Without technology and manuals of rites and passage, they charted and adjusted when necessary and remained undaunted by the dynamics of the ever changing world around them. They were undefined by their surroundings, and yet clear about themselves. This is how we need to approach our current journey. All the life experience to date has been to prepare each of us for the final sailing into new waters. Many of us have reconnected to the older ways of awareness and willingly sharing our talents of mariner-craft.

 

Our children are being born with natural navigational charts built deep within, attuned to the currents, tides, weather patterns and sky-charts. They struggle to stay anchored according to the ages of passed down theatrics and belief systems of sailing, and cry out for freedom to sail as they were divinely designed. Keep them safe and sequestered from the desire to tame the truth of their being for they are the next mariners.

 

As we continue forward into the days and months of our cosmic journey, take time to hold each other’s hand, look deeply into each other’s eyes and connect from the heart of understanding, non-judgmental and with honest acceptance. Offer insight when asked, and distance when not, as each of us run through our check-lists of preparations and continued cyclic lessons. We must not deny the consequences of a person’s choices, but we can be ready to hold out a hand when asked. And always express from your being the love that is the total energy of the universe. It is the construct of our being that was thrust forth in expression when the first source became aware of its presence, and shouted across the void ‘I AM’. And now each of us can equivocally state our own ‘I AM ME’. Each of us a Solar-El (soul), a Sun of the first Sun of divine and holy light. Claim your inheritance and sail forth in the joy of who you are, and collectively in the positivity of being. There is no other frequency like you. No other combination of light that shines forth as you do. Honor your journey and you honor others. Together we sail into the New World, mariners of the spirit, and collectively the chosen children of the great Source how birthed us to experience alongside us eternally.

 

May your Polar Star guide you from within,
