The Nature of the Truth
Full Moon in Pisces
"You don't have to be right all of the time, it's perfectly o.k. to be a little off kilter, dreamy, and to follow your
heart to where ever it may lead you, just because it feels good to do it. This is how we discover the dream,
how to create it, and then manifest it into physical reality. I like to think of it as a colossal collage, set up on a
huge drawing board dream scape with all of the tools and art work fully at my disposal, any thing is possible.
Of course that is is exactly what it is, the thing that amazes me is the fear that most people have of having
dreams, yes, there are really people out there who limit themselves, even in their dream time, a lot of them,
yes, really. I wonder why that is? Did you know that if you can't dream it you can't have it? How does that
make you feel? Competitive, I hope. Believe me, when I say that better alternatives are always available to
you that will allow all kinds of long term rewards that are most satisfying, short term, long term, momentary,
you are in control of how, when, what, where, and why. Is that what the problem is, are you afraid of being
in control of your own world or destination? Mind my asking exactly why that is, as well as when that type
of mind set came into being? Get rid of it, now. It is time to believe in you, because realistically, you are all
that you have unlimited access to, and that is way more than enough, you are limitless. There is a little catch
though, I can hear you now, saying; "Here we go, what's the catch? I knew this was coming!" You have to
believe that you are limitless in order to be limitless. You are the only one who can open those doors that
you have closed off, submerged, or petitioned for. Instant gratification; "We want what we want when we
want it!" Art, creativity, social functions, dancing, any of these are perfect vehicles to open up those doors
and windows of the Soul, as they all fulfill the senses, heighten the energy awareness factor, taking the
thought and feeling nature to the next level of Spirit, which is action manifested in the physical world.
Playing hard, physically working the body, coordinating it with the mind-spirit-feeling nature, alleviates
impatience, frustration, anger, the kind that causes 3-6 year old's to stamp their little feet or throw temper
tantrums, pouting, and sometimes fighting physically, or breaking things when they don't get their way. This
is self-evident in the now of today in the very adult world. "At any given moment we can all play the fool or
the genius." If we revert to madness in the moment instead of being the director, and producer of our own
life's focus and direction, we stop the flow of energy by this kind of reaction, we can divert it by being gentle
with ourselves, and remembering that we all make mistakes, this is how we learn, grow, and ultimately come
to know who we are through our interaction with both ourselves and others, responsibly and intimately. This
does not "just happen" it has to be orchestrated, planned, and acted upon consciously moment by moment,
until it becomes as familiar to us as getting up in the morning and brushing our teeth or combing our hair. We
must get over the fear of the almost overwhelming desire to be perfect, (where does that thought come from
anyway?) and acknowledge the fact that this particular situation does not actually exist. We can then relax
into the moment, learning from what we once considered to be our ultimate humiliations or failings by
turning them into strongly well built success stories. It all starts in the mind. The thoughts we have are always
the doorways into the future, without them or the dreams that we have because we allow them to run wild
at times, how on earth or otherwise, would we know where, what, when, or why, we were doing, going, or
wanting anything? It is always easier if we enter the center with an open mind, the possibilities are endless,
if we are ready and willing to act upon our gut feelings, instinctual nature, instead of trying to control them or
beat them into submission, because of obscure so called rationale that has absolutely no kind of value to us
long term or short term other than as basic control and manipulation tactics. Remember the dog in the cage?
Another good one by Alan Cohen is this story: A man comes home from work tired, all he wants to do is
sit in his chair, take his shoes off, and read the paper, when he comes in the door his five year old son meets
him at the door, smiling and excited to see his Daddy at home, the child asks; "Daddy, will you play with
me?" The man is disheartened because he loves his son and does not want to disappoint him, hanging his
head he spies a picture of the world in the paper and has a brainstorm. Picking up the paper he tears out
the picture and tears it into pieces like a puzzle, he hands them to his son, smiling and making a game out
of it he tells him; "Take this in your room son, and put all the pieces back together again, come see me when
you're done." Enthusiastically the child takes the puzzle and goes to his room, the father settles down to read
his paper fully satisfied that he has served both of them well. In a short time the child comes back with the
page all in tact and glued together. The man is surprised by this and asks the child how he did it, to which
the child responds, "Well, at first I just couldn't do it, it was too confusing, but then one of the papers fell
down and I saw a hand on the other side, so I turned all the papers over and saw a foot and then a head,
so I put those together and it made up a man." The moral of this story is this, if you concentrate on the
person and not the whole world miracles happen. Remove the toxins, don't take yourself or others too
seriously, refuse to buy into the drama, keep it light, thereby allowing no misunderstandings to gather moss
so that they grow into anger or resentment. Stay focused on your dreams and aspirations, it is not necessary
to open your whole world up to anyone or anything that is not a part of your very intimate private world,
keep it that way. You will be glad you did, dirty laundry belongs in the washing machine, not on the table.
Consider your priorities and make a plan to focus on them and not the outer world in general, realistically
beyond calm reason, "they" have very little to do with you. If you must/needs get involved do this only after
you have all of your own affairs in strict order, and then only if you feel like it. Do not allow yourself to be
guilt tripped or coerced, remember, those who try to do this, need you much more than you need them, ask
yourself why this is true, and exactly why that is. Consider the options, as well as the alternatives from a
detached, logical perspective, follow the pathway of the dream. Don't allow yourself to get distracted from
your own purpose, by establishing your priorities in your own mind, you are free to concentrate your mind,
and your energies on your creations in a timely fashion without feeling the pressure or burden of someone
else's demands or assumptions. "Be gentle with yourself, you are a child of the universe, no less than the
birds and the trees, you have the right to be here" compromise or make adjustments only when you feel the
need to do so. Know yourself, then everything else will fall into place. You are the missing piece of the
puzzle, there in is the established framework of your life, you can add accessories at will. Blueprints were
only designed as a guideline, they are not engraved in stone, it is you who must adjust them or deny their
validity or even toss them aside and get new ones, never, ever settle for less than the very best for you, find
that perfect fit that is unique and especially custom made for the now of you. Life is after all a creative work
in progress, the colors and characters constantly changing to compliment the "Spirit of the now" that is
what animation is all about, you should love it or leave it alone. Blessed Be.

Little Red Riding Hood: New Moon in Leo"It is not important what you do. I...: New Moon in Leo "It is not important what you do. It is, however, very important that you do it." Robert Pattinson, the act...
New Moon in Leo
"It is not important what you do. It is, however, very important that you do it."
Robert Pattinson, the actor is always in some of the most amazing movies that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing, all of them are deep, seductive, magnetically compelling, powerfully played, and they carry huge, unexpected, straight to the heart messages.
Those eyes, that shy, sly, smile, combined with these roles, are so very thought provoking in their essence, so accurately right on target in their subtle presentations, that they literally leave one breathless. The mind goes into overdrive in its meditative state, as the personal files of information are opened within by these seemingly innocent observations, the pieces fall together gently and precisely, the mind curls up like a feline that has had their fill of good cream, and the spirit sighs with gratitude, peace is restored to the soul, and for the moment all is clear in the world.
When I want to show someone something without having to go into a lot of explanation or detail, I recommend or hand them a movie, (thanks to Shamanarts for that insight years ago) "A picture is worth a thousand words." Please watch the movie "Remember Me" it is well worth watching all the way to the end. It is a "weaving tale" the ending like all great stories is the realization of the message within the spell. I promise it will leave you spellbound and amazed. It is about all of us in the now of today in some aspect. It shows us how and why it is important that we do what we need to do, as every little piece of the puzzle does matter.
If you feel that you need to break free of some situation, and yet you are afraid of the change, and what it will do to your world or those around you, it is even more important that you pay attention to the details of the situation that is around you. Compromise is difficult, surrender almost impossible to do. There may seem to be no way out, quite possibly this is true, so what can you do? First and foremost you must understand and remember the fact that you are not alone in this. If you feel that you are playing the part of a martyr you are seeing yourself in a victims role. There are no victims, really, only choices. You can decide to be a victim if you wish to, that is a choice. It is not your only option. Dark Venus has come into view, and this is but the ending of a season, and the beginning of another one. There must be depth for the light to shine in its purity. There must be dormancy for the plant to grow and flower in the spring. It is not an ending that you feel, it is simply a lesson or a challenge, if you decide to see it that way, or must/need to. It may seem as if there are
problems and adversaries with both open and hidden agendas, very real confrontations, intimate one to ones, inescapable problems that must be handled. You must accept the fact that these things are coming to a head because of too many compromises on the part of all concerned, these very real, buried complaints, and grievances seek to be aired because they are weakening the effectiveness of the entire entity on all levels of development in your life, personal, as well as professional, in that the "team" is not working together toward common goals or aspirations. There is a division here that must be repaired or let go of, as it is not growing or being supported in any way. There seems to be a "closed door" or "mind set" that is not open to new initiations, ideas, or adjustments, thus productivity is grinding to a crashing halt. Change is a necessity, not an option. Your energies can and will be used more effectively working within a partnership or group. You are not an island. You must admit this to yourself. If you cannot allow the people who are around you now to come into your life and be a part of it, then you must accept the fact that they are a part of the problem. This must be resolved, accepted, and ultimately acted upon. Like a surgeon, you must take a cold, clear, look at the situation, in order to "see" the truth, and then "fix" it. What you feel, think, and do, are completely different from where, what, and how you imagined yourself to be, however, your thoughts are clear, your heart is full, and your actions can be productive, if you are willing to share your ideas, and aspirations with others, this can be amazingly gratifying if you will allow it to happen, and get over the fear. Dream of better...open to the flow...share the burden...hold out your hand. What have you got to lose...really? Life is to be lived. Are you living it, or is it an existence that you have chosen for yourself? What are you holding onto that is in reality, holding you back, and keeping you a prisoner to the past? What brings you pleasure? Are you indulging it? Are you closing the door and bolting it to new experiences and horizons? Where is the strain or pull off of your energies in your life? Trace the path and nip it in the bud, move on! Don't look back.
"All impulses of thought have a tendency to clothe themselves in their physical equivalent." -Napoleon Hill-
"Nothing stands between us and our desires except the lack of a definite purpose." What is you purpose? Find it and the pieces all fall into place. You will feel it, and there will be a smile upon your face. Follow that dream to where it takes you. Never, ever, let it go, all else that is important will follow. I promise you.
