Releasing Drama, Resistance

As I sat for my meditation this morning, and some mornings recently, many thoughts leading into it, about the cord for my emWave, and about decisions that were rather small and relatively inconsequential and distracting, like will I listen to my gentle water stream this time? or focus on my breath by counting?  Will I just allow the breath today? The decisions seemed ‘huuuuge.’ What I see in this is a simply a shadow. The largeness of the situation was rather my inner resistance to doing ‘the next –—-ordinary—–thing next.’  Often we want quick results, we want to experience the evidence of our ‘hard work’ and then only to realize, that, that I do this more often than I’d like to admit, the hardness is the resistance. This is why we ‘do’ anyways…

My friends, it doesn’t matter whether you shine or not. Nine times out of ten the resistance is comical, theatrical almost – if only it weren’t ever so slightly tragic. But, I think this is the actual worthwhile work.

I’m happy that you are here and breathing, and enjoying yourselves. That is enough, I think.

There’s a picture in my mind of a meditator, tangled up in cords, but I really don’t have time to find the right picture. The true unplugging, well, that’s from this:

A symbol of the inner resistance, and yes, probably technology…




Standing in your own power, do the next thing next.

About my drawing, in the abstract, an oracle uncovered:
The solar-powered brain-tree…. still cries, moistening the ground, and giving the hot sun something to do! What is implied: wind-power! Movement, and engagement.

Oh yes, yes, yes, There’s that full moon lunar eclipse in Leo. Conjunct my natal sun, in Leo. Yes, I am a Leo. Hear my gentle rawr.

Let’s rawr! 🙂 and then do the next thing…

Endings and Beginnings 🌕💫🎆 2018

After the Full Moon in Cancer on New Year’s day, today – the 2nd, Uranus stations direct, perhaps freeing us up on our journey of enlightenment.

Jan 1st’s astrological kite formation had the full moon opposite major planets in stellium in Capricorn, among them were Venus, Saturn, Pluto and the Sun. Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio were forming a trine to Neptune in Pisces, while Mars/Jupiter and Neptune formed a sextile to the Capricorn Stellium.

New Year’s time is usually a time of ending and beginnings. Many cultural celebrations include reviews of the previous year and setting intentions or goals for the future.

Interestingly, having a full moon in Cancer at culmination (full) on the first day of the New Year, in the astrological world, sets a tone for the year. I believe that you can make the best of all the transits, and look forward to discovering what this year brings in terms of inspiration. Cancer is a very lovely sign offering nurturing and support. At best, it can help the foundation for all of the very strong Capricorn energy in the chart. At best, Capricorn will help with that inner world foundation (Cancer), by focusing the work and being diligent and forming supportive structures in the world from which to grow in a stabilized and grounded way.

Here’s wishing everyone a Happy New Year 2018, and a very nurturing (compassionate, peaceful), fulfilling New Year!

Here are two photos that I have taken to ring in the New Year. I took this particular photo of the Full Moon at 6:24pm, PST, exact.

“Sitting in meditation, and continually finding my way back to peace…” is a good personal mantra for this New Year.
