Marko Pogačnik is a Slovenian Artist and Geomancer, and a UNESCO Artist for Peace (http://www.markopogacnik.com/).  He contracts with governments in Eastern Europe to repair damaged Ley Lines and other Geomantic phenomena.  As a result of the long Russian influence, Eastern Europe is much more open to Earth Energies than Western Europe and its spawn.  A meditation Marko suggests…

“TREASURE WITHIN

“From the ethical point of view the way how people in general treat each other nowadays – and also beings of nature – can not be accepted any more.  But it seems impossible to change the situation by intensifying the legal control.  What would certainly help is the possibility that human beings would remember their deeper identity and the reason why Gaia, the Earth, has invited humanity to join her evolution.

“The matrix of our cosmic identity is the great treasure that we, human beings carry within ourselves.

“The purpose of the following meditation is to find the place where the jewel of human identity is stored within our multidimensional being.  Secondly it needs to radiate into the world the need of the moment: to bring the true human identity into expression in the daily life.

  • “Imagine that your breast bone is the trunk of the inner tree of life.  Our creative capacities, our consciousness and hands represent its crown.
  • “The tree of life develops its roots at the lower end point of the breast bone.
  • “There, among the roots of the tree of life you should search for the greatest treasure that we carry within ourselves.  You can imagine it as a jewel with many facets – the cosmic matrix of the human being.
  • “It is given to each human being before stepping upon the path of incarnation.  But unfortunately it gets mostly forgotten after landing upon the Earth.
  • “And after you have found the great jewel among the roots of the tree of life, lift it to the level of your heart and let it radiate into the world to help fellow human beings to awake and to reconnect with the matrix that each one of us carries within.”

Here’s another quote from Marko, describing a talk he’ll be giving in the Western US on 2 July 2020…

CLIMATE CHANGES AS OPPORTUNITY FOR THE EVOLUTION OF THE EARTH AND THE HUMAN CULTURE

“Deep changes that our planet is going through are often presented as approaching horror.  Such a negative image is the result of human loss of the inner connection to the Earth and its consciousness. 

“The author presents his experiences while working with treasures and traumas of Earth’s landscapes and urban ambiences showing that Gaia is consciously decomposing the extremely closed space of reality constructed during the last 5 millennia under the rule of the dominating rationality. 

“At the same time, Gaia as guiding creative force of the planet is constructing a different space of reality which is multidimensional.  It stands for the future of the planet and also of the human culture.

Here’s what I consider to be a very Important contribution from Camilla Blossom Bishop…

https://camillablossom.com/2020/01/28/are-you-nature-conscious/

“Are You Nature Conscious?

“Intentions are great to have when working with nature and land.  Yet, that is not enough.  You need consent.

“When you ask permission, or consent, from the land spirits and invisible beings of nature, you will know that your intentions are not just yours but are welcomed by the beings that live there.

“I call this nature consciousness.  Nature consciousness flourishes when you are attuned to nature when making decisions, and when you are open to invitations to co-create with nature and the spirits of place.

“I first became aware of this issue when I felt land being ‘used’ as a backdrop or location to host events.  The land spirits and ancestors that lived there did not always seem very keen to participate in these events.  At times, I sensed that the land did not want an event to happen at all.  The event was disruptive to the place.

“Or, worse yet, were events that happened without permission and the people hosting it never cleaned up their energy afterwards—emotional, mental, spiritual, and such.  This energetic debris congested the land and created heaviness among the elementals and nature spirits.  The land spirits felt affected by stagnation, lack of respect, confusion, and in extreme cases violence.

“When the land and its spirits are considered as an integral part of the event, the event is showered with beautiful energy of the fairies, nature spirits, elementals, ancestral spirits of land.

“Be nature conscious with all your land decisions…

“Do the land spirits want your upcoming event held on the property?

“Is there a specific area that is best for an event and an area that needs rest?

“Is this the optimal garden location according to the fairies and nature spirits?

“So, if you want to host an event, offer healing treatments, or change something in the landscape, build a house, make sure you ask permission from the land spirits so you will create the optimal situation for everyone.  Check in well before you want to make plans.

“Make sure you are acting from a place of nature consciousness – in alignment with your land and nature.  Your land spirits will thank you in many unexpected ways including bringing harmony, peace, and love to all your events.”

And it’s not just “Nature” that’s a Conscious Partner in everything we do.  In France they have a philosophy called Resistentialism, which deals with that they refer to as the “Innate Perversion of Inanimate Objects.”  The philosophy is proven by dropping a piece of toast covered with peanut butter and jam, and observing that when dropped on linoleum or tile, it always lands face up.  But when dropped on carpet, it always lands jam down.

However, there is no such thing as an “Inanimate Object.”  There is only an “Unconscious Observer” who fails to Notice that All Objects and Energies are Conscious, and need to be Addressed as such.  Seek Consent from your toast, your jam, and your floor, and the formerly “Inanimate” Spirits may “thank you in many unexpected ways including bringing harmony, peace, and love to all your events.”

And a Teaching on Duality from Neale Donald Walsch, forwarded by a reader…

“In just a few days… people in many countries will be celebrating Valentine’s Day by giving… gifts as an open declaration of their love for another.

“And there is something wonderful about this day in our still-just-emerging new year of 2020: we are seeing more love than ever before shared more openly than ever before by members of our species.

“We are also seeing more alienation than ever before, expressed more openly than ever before.  Yet this need not be a cause for discouragement.  It can, in fact, be a sign that we are at last ready for what could be humanity’s greatest celebration: a quantum leap into our long-predicted thousand years of peace.

“What we are seeing in these days and times is consistent with what is called, in the published dialogues of Conversations with God, the ‘Law of Opposites.’

“This law states that the moment you declare yourself to be anything, everything unlike it will come into the space of your awareness.  That is because the collective consciousness of all sentient beings works systematically to create a Contextual Field within which that which they choose to Be may become manifest in their experience.

“Put simply, if they wish to know themselves experientially as being ‘warm,’ that which is called ‘cold’ must exist.

“If they wish to know themselves experientially as being ‘big,’ that which is called ‘small’ must exist.

“What they are not must exist in their awareness if they wish to experience what they choose to be.  You can (to use an example) choose to be ‘the light,’ but you cannot experience that choice in the complete absence of the darkness.

“I have gone into a bit of detail about this now so that we can know that discouragement over some of what is going on in the world right today can rightly be replaced by Encouragement, as we recognize exactly what is happening.

“We are seeing a precise demonstration of the Law of Opposites, and that tells us that we are on the right track as our species advances in its evolution.

“The important thing now is to remain conscious of the role we can play in moving this process forward.  There is no question that these days and time are among the most meaningful in human history, because we are transforming, right now, into the grandest version of the greatest vision ever we held about Who We Are.

“It is, as my dear friend Barbara Marx Hubbard always reminded us, a birthing process, and as such it sometimes can be painful.

“What I am seeing all around me now is a growing awareness of all of this among people everywhere.  Our collective consciousness is expanding at an astonishing rate, and we are beginning to rise up in the face of ‘the opposite’ of what we have chosen to be, and lovingly encouraging a change of course for humanity.

Conversations with God Book 4: Awaken the Species placed before us a powerful invitation to do just that, together with a set of very practical tools to help us.

“Among these tools was a remarkable list of the differences in the behaviors of an awakened species when compared to the behaviors of humans living in an unawakened state, so that we could have a measure to see how we are doing.

“I’m excited to tell you that I am seeing more and more people stepping into these behaviors every day – no doubt in response to the Law of Opposites.

“Here is that list, taken right from the CWG text, to remind and re-energize those of us who have already seen it, and to inspire those who are seeing it for the first time:

“1. An awakened species sees the Unity of All Life and lives into it.  Humans in an unawakened state often deny it or ignore it.

“2. An awakened species tells the truth, always.  Humans in an unawakened state too often lie, to themselves as well as others.

“3. An awakened species says one thing and will do what they say.  Humans in an unawakened state often say one thing and do another.

“4. An awakened species, having seen and acknowledged what is so, will always do what works.  Humans in an unawakened state often do the opposite.

“5. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concepts that humans refer to as ‘justice’ and ‘punishment.’

“6. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as ‘insufficiency.’

“7. An awakened species does not embrace a principle in its civilization that correlates with the concept that humans refer to as ‘ownership.’

“8. An awakened species shares everything with everyone all the time.  Humans in an unawakened state often do not, only sharing with others in limited circumstances.

“9. An awakened species creates a balance between technology and cosmology; between machines and nature.  Humans in an unawakened state often do not.

“10. An awakened species would never under any circumstances terminate the current physical expression of another sentient being unless asked directly by that other being to do so.  Humans in an unawakened state often kill other humans without that other human requesting them to.

“11. An awakened species would never do anything that could potentially damage or harm the physical environment that supports the members of the species when they are physicalized.  Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

“12. An awakened species never poisons itself.  Humans in an unawakened state often do so.

“13. An awakened species never competes.  Humans in an unawakened state are often in competition with each other.

“14. An awakened species is clear that it needs nothing.  Humans in an unawakened state often create a need-based experience.

“15. An awakened species experiences and expresses unconditional love for everyone.  Humans in an unawakened state often cannot imagine even a Deity who does this, much less do they do it themselves.

“16. An awakened species has harnessed the power of metaphysics.  Humans in an unawakened state often largely ignore it.

“This is a great checklist, and as we approach this Valentine’s Day, I see people everywhere working to integrate those ideas into the life, placing before humanity not only more and more love, but a whole new cultural story, and sending us in fresh and uplifting directions in relationships, work, marriage, culture, education, parenting, and every area of human endeavor.

“So be not discouraged as the Law of Opposites plays itself out in wonderfully positive ways. It surely will, as you and others like you continue to take the lead in producing that outcome.

“And if you do get a tiny bit dismayed here and there, remember this invitation from Conversations with God:

“Raise not your fist to heaven and curse the darkness not, but be a light unTO the darkness, that you might know who you really are.  Let your light so shine before men, that all those whose lives you touch may know who they really are as well.—

Sounds like 5D, don’t it.

Happy Lunar New Year 3

January 26, 2020

An occasional reader Asks,

“Here’s what I want to know in these dark days when [the Influence of the Antichrist] seems to be spreading worldwide: when is the Age of Aquarius?”

These are 2,150-year “Ages,” so they don’t Shift on a dime.  We’re more Comfortable with Discrete Changes than we are with Gradual Changes, however, so even if we Recognize that Change is usually Incremental, we’d like to have a hard date so we know when to Celebrate Birthdays, don’t we.  Our post on Happy Lunar New Year, at https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/2020/01/24/happy-lunar-new-year/, proposed several possible dates – May 2023, 25 February 2020, 25 January 2020, 2 March 2020.

But Aquarius is Fixed Air, which we can translate as Rigid Ideology.  From that perspective, it began on 1 January 2000, when the New Century chart indicated Polarity (the Grand Cross, with its Saturn-Uranus and Pallas-Neptune Oppositions) as one of the four defining characteristics of the Century.  Fortunately, Enlightenment was another (the Sabian Symbol for the Initiation of the then-new Chiron-Pluto Cycle).  It probably wouldn’t hurt to review that chart, so we can review the other two defining characteristics as well.

The Digital Age, which is replacing the Industrial Age, begins at the Capricorn (Northern Winter) Solstice, 2020 (Initiation of the second of twenty Jupiter-Saturn Cycles in Air Signs).  The promise of the Digital Age is that “Work” will no longer be necessary for us, because the Machines will do it all.  That’s a pipe dream, obviously, based on our Experience, but once the Digital Age goes Exponential – which it will, and surprisingly soon – that may Change.

For this to work, for The People as well as The Owners, the Machines must be Publicly Owned.  The Founders and CEOs can be minority owners if they haven’t Learned to Share yet, as long as most of the profits are distributed to The People.  The People also have to stop Worshiping Mammon, or They won’t be Willing to Share, either.  There is Talk of Jubilee and Universal Income, which is positive, but The People haven’t demonstrated yet that They understand much of this.

That’s if The People Survive.  Climate Change is the Grey Swan here.  If we pull another Atlantis, what would the Age of Aquarius even mean?  That we’re Underwater?  Why does Aquarius pour Water over everything, anyway?  Because Fixed Air is a Skeptic?  Skepticism will only Freeze us into What Already Is.  The People might start to get Serious about Climate Change in 2022 (when the new Pholus-Quaoar [Responsibility/Survival] Cycle is Initiated, at 8 Capricorn on 2 February 2022.  That’s 2/2/2022, which resolves to 10, the Wheel of Fortune; another chart we need to Examine).

Our Survival Zeitgeist then shifts from “Children play on a swing hanging from the branches of a huge Oak tree: The power of tradition as it shelters the beginnings of individual self-expression” (the Sabian Symbol for the 11 Leo Initiation of the previous, 12 October 1901, Pholus-Quaoar Cycle) to “In a Sun-lit home domesticated Birds sing joyously: The wholesome happiness which subservience to the ideals and patterns of a well-established culture brings to those who accept them unreservedly (the Sabian Symbol for 8 Capricorn).”

Based on this, if we see “the Influence of the Antichrist” as anti-Democratic, maybe Robotic Obedience to Cultural Propaganda is our Best Option.  To a Culture that requires everyone to spend an hour a day with their thumb in the dike, for instance.  Someone might even invent a Culture that’s based on Universal Acceptance of Other People’s Ideas.  Wouldn’t that be Radical.  They’d have to outlaw the Idea that certain Other People, however defined, need to be Killed, probably enforced with Capital Punishment.  See how quickly Mentality – and Fixed Air – shoots itself in the foot?

If we look at what Hupers actually Do, rather than what they Profess, we see how we’re Herd Animals, who often violently Resist an Idea until enough Other People come to Accept the Idea.  Once we Realize that continuing our Resistance will lead to our Abandonment, we often relent.  As a Social Species, except for Indigenous Cultures that Train for the eventuality, Hupers equate Abandonment with Death, because they’ve Forgotten how to Survive Alone, and have themselves Abandoned the Intuitive Energies (such as the “Gods” Quaoar or Makemake) who would Teach them how.

We also know that Hupers generally prefer to Conserve Energy, wanting to keep their Investments producing as long as possible.  Consequently, few of them jump right onto the bandwagon when a New Cycle Begins.  Instead, they argue that the New Cycle Ain’t Natural, and, once the Initial Excitement about it begins to subside, most folks start to Deny that the New Cycle will prevail, and Act as though the Old Cycle still reigns.  Until the New Cycle reaches the point where Denial is no longer possible (the Waxing Square of the Cycle).

From that Perspective, the dates we gave in the first paragraph of this post, could be our best guesses (since they’re Waxing Squares).

Another feature of Huperity and its psychology, is that while Mentality is Dualistic, the Unconscious is not.  Of course folks who Deny the Invisible are prone to Deny the Unconscious, but that’s their loss.  While the public media and most of our other discourse is Dualistic, our Behavior isn’t.  Most of us Say one thing and Do the opposite, because we’re trying to Convince ourself that we aren’t “one of those people who” Do that.  Once we Recognize that, then our approach to astrology is drastically different.

Aquarius is no longer necessarily Rigid Ideologies, it could just as easily mean The Antithesis of Rigid Ideologies.  That might mean The End of Judgment.  That could produce Universal Acceptance of Other People.  That would probably require the Opening of Hearts.  It could even produce Respect for All Things, even for the Consciousness inherent in Nature and in supposedly Inanimate Things.

That would drastically Change our approach to Climate Change, since Lack of Respect for the Consciousness inherent in Nature and in supposedly Inanimate Things is what has Created not just Climate Change, but all of the other Abuses of the Planet and Her discounted non-Huper Citizens as well.

So maybe the Age of Aquarius isn’t so much a Mass phenomenon as an Individual one.  Maybe it begins for each of us as soon as we Open our Hearts, Eschew Judgment, and start Respecting All Things, Animate or not.  If so, it could begin today.

Indeed, Marilyn Raffaele’s Arcturian Channeling for today suggests,

http://www.onenessofall.com/newest.html

Allow your spiritual journey to unfold without limitations that consist of nothing more than concepts and beliefs based on the experiences of others for every person’s inner journey is individual and authentic. 

“Allow, by truly accepting that you are not the person you believed yourself to be, but are a Divine Being, an expression of Source Consciousness who formed for yourself a physical body in order to work and live in the denser energies of earth – a three dimensional interpretation of the real body, one of energy and Light.
“You are more than ready to identify with the reality of who and what you are – Self-sustained, Self-maintained Divine Consciousness.  Within ‘Self-sustained and Self-maintained’ exists every Divine Reality, everything ever believed to be lacking – abundance, harmony, wholeness, safety, security,  peace, completeness, intelligence, companionship – ad infinitum – just awaiting conscious recognition.  This is the secret of life, the holy grail, hidden in plain sight where most never think to look – within.
“Divine qualities have always been and can only be fully present within every individual simply because Divine Consciousness is all that exists, manifesting ITself in infinite forms.  Beliefs of duality and separation have created a collective consciousness that believes itself separate from other people, animals, plants and all living things as well as from God.  The ups and downs, good and bad experiences of daily living are simply duality in expression for there is no unexpressed consciousness.
“This is the work – ‘What am I holding as truth in my consciousness?’
“The three dimensional experience is like someone having a large bank account that they are unaware of and so live in poverty and need.  However, each day more people are waking up to realize that much they have always accepted as true regarding every facet of daily life is simply not true.  It is at this point that food, entertainment, activities, and desires,  begin to lose their appeal and we begin our journey toward our as of yet unknown ‘bank account’.”

Then we’d have to Ask, Where’s asteroid Hopi in all this, since Hopi is all about Respect for All Things.  Well, turns out that Hopi is part of the “Bowl of Grace” or Trine Bridges that underlie the Makemake T-Square in the 24 January New Moon chart and help make it Self-Resolving.  Which is to say that, with Uranus/Soul, it’s one foot of the Finger of God to Makemake.  Hopi Conjoins dwarf Planet OR10; in fact, that Conjunction, and Initiation of a New five-year Cycle, is Exact today, as we speak.  A Hopi-OR10 Cycle is about the Voices in our heads that whisper about Respect for All Things

This one begins at 4 Pisces, “Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seasonal resorts: The mobility and intensity of interchanges which make possible and characterize complex social processes.”  Yes, Respect for All Things gets horrendously Complex.  Do I apologize to the Bread, or to the Toaster, when I burn my Toast?  For a start, we definitely need to Listen a lot more!  Sounds like an improvement though, from the previous March 2014 3 Pisces Cycle, “Petrified tree trunks lie broken on desert sand: The power to preserve records of their achievements which is inherent in fully mature cultures.”  Which records are of course tantamount to the Ghosts of the Past.

Marilyn continues…

Never attempt to reclaim the past dear ones, for once the lesson of some experience is complete, it is no longer needed.  As you shift into ever higher states of awareness,  you are no longer in alignment with much of your past.   

Some attempt to re-create the past, clinging to nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ in the belief that these times were better  but which in reality held the same dense and negative issues the world is witnessing today.  In general, the unawakened majority of earlier times surrendered their personal power to others, thus allowing the same dense and negative issues of today to be ignored, denied, or covered up.”

Karma Repair 5

May 21, 2019

A friend of mine recently intended to say “I’m Hungry” and it came out as “I’m Angry” – that’s how Subtle these Energies are.  They’re Opportunities; often our Karma is a lot more In-Our-Face, and it will be again if we continue to pass on the Subtle Opportunities.

Here’s the chart for the 23 May (5pm PDT) Station of Orcus in 10 Virgo, drawn in the lighter lines.  The heavier lines show the closely related 19 May Merger of Saturn with the Mean South Node in 21 Capricorn (see the previous Karma Repair posts)…

You can see that the T-Square (red triangle) containing Orcus is focused on asteroid Ceres (which would be called “Cup-Hook” if we named planets after their glyphs).  In other words, the main issue here is Sustainability.  Not just Can We Let Go of Our Karma, but also Can We Continue to Choose Otherwise?

The third corner of this T-Square triangle is dwarf planet Nessus – Abuse and Privilege.  So it’s not just Letting Go of Our Karma, it’s Permanently Letting Go of Abuse, which means Naming it what it is, and Setting Firm Boundaries around it.  And yes, asteroid Pallas (Boundaries – the diamond on a cross) is involved, in a very positive way (a Quincunx Bridge – green lines – across the Orcus-Nessus Opposition; a Quincunx Bridge means it’s Grace unless we try to Anal-yze it).

But who is this Orcus fellow?  He was a pre-Roman Etruscan God-figure whose job was to Punish Oath-Breakers.  Strikes Terror, eh?  How many times have we been threatened with Dire Consequences if we Break an Oath?  The Yangtegrity Patriarchy made a big deal of Oaths, but hereabouts we lean more toward Yintegrity, as does our 5D future.  Oaths are spawn of Duality, and we prefer to Relate to the Universe as Unitary and Multifarious.  It’s the Limited mind that has great difficulty getting past Either/Or Duality.  When we aren’t In the Flow and Living Intuitively, then Yangtegrity is useful.  But it keeps us in 3D; Either/Or is Political, Both/And is Spiritual.

It turns out that our Unconscious Limiting Beliefs have their roots in forgotten Oaths that we made a long time ago, often in other Lifetimes.  The All-or-Nothing, Unconditional nature of Oaths is a side-effect of Duality.  The rest of Life is Situational.  We don’t Vow never to cross the street, we Vow to look both ways and cross only when it’s Safe – we use the “rule” if it fits the Situation; if it doesn’t fit, we look for Alternatives.  One way to interpret the impact of Ceres in this T-Square, is that it Invites us to Let Go of our Unconditional Oaths – the last thing we want to do is Sustain our Self-Sabotage!

With Nessus involved, we have to consider examples involving Abuse.  When Uncle Andy violated us and warned that they’d kill Mom if we told anyone, of course we Vowed never to tell.  And of course we Forgot it, because we worked our butt off to Forget the whole Trauma.  So how does that Vow impact our Lives now?  What if we PIAVAed to Open up that Wound so we could Let it Go?  Would this Vow prevent that Opening from happening?  It would probably do its best to try.  Meanwhile, what Experiences does the Vow prevent us from Indulging?

Unfortunately, the Unconscious often agitates for its own Clearing.  So we may be attracted to Abusers, or to the Abused, and we may have difficulty Breaking this “Habit” until we Clear the origin.  We may not Trust other people, or we may need to keep them at a Distance.  We may have to deal with Suffocation issues that aren’t really “ours.”  These Limits may interfere with What We Really Want out of Life – our Souls are more than clever enough to set up Life circumstances where the only way we can get what we Want most is to Confront our Limits.  That’s the nature of the Nodal Axis.

But, the Orcus-Nessus Opposition (Reverting Oaths involving Abuse or Privilege) is also Bridged by blue lines, or Grace (the Trine Bridge to asteroid Nemesis, which symbolizes Ego Death). Ego Death doesn’t need to be Traumatic, though it depends on our Beliefs about how much of our Life is critically Dependent on that particular Ego.  But Trust me, there are a thousand other potential Egos waiting in the wings to take over, and most of them will do a fine job.

The Egos that won’t do a fine job, will connect you to ancillary issues that you also need to Clear in order to Liberate yourself.  You can even Modulate the pace of your Ego-Clearing – all you need to do is Ask.  “God/Goddess, please lead me Lovingly, Gently, Rapidly, and Completely through the process of Liberating myself from Abuse Memories and any resulting Oaths I (or a former Incarnation) may have made as a result,” for instance.  This is a Trine Bridge, it’s the Easy Path around the difficulty.  Asking for What You Want is a fabulous way to Accept Grace.

Dualities on Dualities

September 13, 2017

Some Perspective on Duality from Dan’s Arcturian friends…

http://danielscranton.com/duality-polarity-in-this-universe-%e2%88%9ethe-9th-dimensional-arcturian-council/

“We have an understanding of this universe that gives us the ability to coexist within it with beings who are not of service to the greatest and highest good of all.  We understand that the universe that we live in with you is about duality and polarity, and therefore we can accept that there will always be dark forces in this universe.

“Now, once we came to accept this truth about the universe, we were able to let go.  We were able to let go of any need or desire to eliminate or even punish those dark forces.  We know that there is so much more power in the light, and we also know that any being who wants to remain in the light must be focused on the light.  In other words, the light must let go of any preoccupation with the dark in this universe in order to fully be the light.

“And so that has been our journey, and we are here now to suggest that it be your journey as well.  Part of your journey is becoming aware of the darkness, and we know that once you awaken it becomes impossible to ignore that darkness.  The next step is acceptance, and finally you let go of your attachment.  You let go of the attachment to a need to be right.

“Only a being who feels the need to be right would want to continue to focus on what is wrong or what is lying in the shadows.  We would much rather see you encouraging more people to come to the light in order to free themselves from the bondage of that preoccupation with the dark.  You can do this in your own lives, and you can encourage others to do it by setting your example and by holding space for them, but ultimately the darkness must always remain as a choice.

“Once you allow that choice to be, you can still choose the light, and we know that if you are listening to or reading this message, you are choosing the light.”

Of course Light and Dark, and Good and Notsomuch, are just more Dualities.  Signposts on the road.  If possible we don’t want to make them into Ideals to Identify with – that would just make more Archetypes.  But if we can Choose Light and Good and Neutrality somehow, Letting Go of Judgment, then maybe we can start scraping off our patina of Light and Good and start getting down to what’s underneath.
