Steady As She Goes

In the midst of the turmoil and world chaos, I see that deep down I am as calm and centered as can be. How could I be anything else?

Maybe it simply boils down to what is made available to us as a whole. I feel it is more about what we chose to concentrate on. Turn on a TV, if you still have one of those things and you can see a constant stream of negative news and entertainment designed to make you want more. The same thing happens on social media. My Facebook wall is so polluted with negative finger-pointing, uni-level points of view, and well-meaning intentions. It is so ugly, I do not read a thing on it. It is hard to not walk away feeling it is the end of the world. And perhaps it is but an end of life, it is not.

I was born in a world where people used rotary phones, did not lock doors and electric magnetic fields (EMF) were few. Today, we are bombarded with the next greatest and "bestest". G5 promises faster connection speeds while many sound the health and environmental alarm.

The tough part is that the vast majority everywhere listen to mainstream news. Considering five companies hold all news outlets in the US, it is hard to imagine we have access to fair, impartial, and unbiased news. Considering how big businesses conduct themselves and looking into their business model, it is not too difficult to see there is a fundamental underlying problem. Between what they say and what they do, there is a world of differences.

Still, within the safety of my "inside", there is calm. It is almost as if there is a wise person sitting, looking. observing, and not getting excited about anything. Neither happy nor sad, this inner entity watches with an anchored confidence. There is a hint of a "make the transition now or wait for a few more decades", but overall, things are going according to divine Universal intention.

No Longer in Shadows, Pentagon’s U.F.O. Unit Will Make Some Findings Public

For over a decade, the program, now tucked inside the Office of Naval Intelligence, has discussed mysterious events in classified briefings.

Mr. Reid, the former Democratic senator from Nevada who pushed for funding the earlier U.F.O. program when he was the majority leader, said he believed that crashes of objects of unknown origin may have occurred and that retrieved materials should be studied.

“After looking into this, I came to the conclusion that there were reports — some were substantive, some not so substantive — that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession,” Mr. Reid said in an interview


No crash artifacts have been publicly produced for independent verification.


Chase The Problem, It will Come Back Running At You

The human makeup is perfectly well made up. We can handle a lot, process almost anything, and establish healthier foundations. But stand in the way of processing, push it away to eventually deal with it later and the problems exponentially grow. In other words, chase away unresolved problems, they will come back with insistence. Might as well resolve it now. It only gets tougher the longer you wait.

Cannabis and alcohol are strange substances. Alcohol is perfectly accepted in most cultures and even has medicinal values. Cannabis is not as accepted and has medicinal values. Both work wonder in temporarily putting away problems to the side. But problems do not resolve themselves on their own. That is why we sleep. So that we can process, order, arrange and learn from what we experienced. Without sleep, we put things to the side. We might use cannabis and alcohol to alleviate stress, but the problems remain.

EMDR (Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) was invented in order to deal with old traumas that were not properly processed earlier. The reason why it works is that it lets us re-experience a traumatic event and letting the human psyche deal with it in a natural way. Progressive Counting also works very well I hear.

The human psyche is well done. It can tolerate so much and when limits have been reached. It can turn itself off. That is why so many who have been molested or raped talk about not being there, being removed from the event, as if their mind had been removed and taken elsewhere. It is the way our psyche deals with traumatic events. It shuts down temporarily and deals with it later, usually at night during sleep.

AstroEyes Evolutionary Astrology – Cathy Lindsey

This Cancer New Moon is the second cancer New Moon in a row.  We had a Cancer New Moon on June 20th at 1 degree of Cancer along with an Eclipse and the Summer Solstice…and this current New Moon on July 20th….is at 28 degrees of Cancer.  Making this a powerful message from the Universe about Nurturing, Caring, Home, Family, Protection, Emotions, and Mother Earth.  During the Spring Equinox (the Astrological New Year and the backdrop for entire year)…when the Virus was well on it’s way…we had a strong  message from the Universe (because of the Nodes etc) that the Cancer energy was what the Universe wanted us to embody.  Getting back to spending time with our Family’s, the Earth, our homes etc.   We ended up spending a lot of time at home with our Families and found out that it wasn’t so bad.  The Universe new it was time in our Evolution (personally and of the collective/humanity) to balance out spending too much time at work and away from family and nature and move out of  the energy of work, work, work, and not spending time with family…to enjoying and making time for Family and Nature.  This second Cancer New Moon is like a pop quiz!   The Universe is nudging us to see if we started to make that change and focus more on being with Family/ Home and not so detached and focused on working all the time.   It is extremely important right now that you pass this quiz from the Universe!  We don’t want the Universe to be unhappy with us J     

Over Rover. Move Over. There's Something Leaner

I'm watching a few extremely well-off people fret with unease, sadness, and empathy. It must be hard seeing your universe shaken to the root when you are not expecting it.

The thought came about when Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, Ivanka Trump, I am not sure what she does, and Rometti, who sits on the board at IBM came out and misguidedly asked Americans to go get another job and or another career. The video is difficult to watch as the three make a convincing point that they are very out of touch with reality. But what was even more painful to watch was how they felt to me as slave drivers watching their fortune dwindle and asking the common Joe to go out there again and get working.

The problem with these people is that they are not good stewards of the economy. The average US CEO makes thousands of dollars compared to their employees. I am not saying they should get paid more or less, but to understand the reality of everyday life before asking the good people to go out there and find another job -- as in by magic. What is needed is a fertile ground where a smart economy can happen. And the current one is anything but smart.

This link can bring you up to speed. Here are a few snippets:

...CEOs get paid a lot. For the companies on our list, the average CEO salary in 2018 was $18,669,849—or just under $9,000 an hour. Disney’s Robert Iger highest-paid CEO making over $65 million in 2018, while Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos made the least (a paltry $1.6 million).

...employees, on the other hand? Well, their average salary was a much lower $15.37 an hour, or about $32,000 a year.

Standing Still, My Biggest Challenge

After decades of action and being on the move, this stillness has stirred much discomfort.

The COVID-19 pandemic is teaching societies so much. It has brought out the best in some and the worse in a few. The worse in the few will eventually change to the best in themselves. The transition is the hardest part. That unknowing stuck in discomfort while things change, you change, I change, the world changes.

In the midst of a career change, maybe or maybe not, I have to stand still and let the cosmic dice land where they need to be.

And so I end this post as I live this day...

I Ching Right Under My Nose

33Nicolas's picture

One of the things I love about getting older is revisiting things that were once part of my life. This has been happening lately and now the I Ching is coming back into my life, except this time, it is with a deeper appreciation and learning experience behind it.

And Thus, The I Ching Walks Back in My Life

A few weeks ago I an I Ching book, the famous Chinese Book of Changes. I used to have one in my twenties. It is great to revisit it with a fresher perspective, more experience, and hopefully distilled into wisdom.

Lately, a few things have made their way back into my awareness. Taoism particuliarly and now the I Ching. It is interesting because it is happening with fresh new sets of eyes. And I love it!

The I Ching is the ancient Chinese book of divination also called Book of Changes. It is used to get a sense of how things are going and if the path you are choosing is auspicious or ominous.

The gist is simple but a little preparation helps eek out more from the experience. As a matter of respect, the book should be kept above human shoulder height when at rest. Use a silk cloth, ideally white, to wrap it in.

In order to prepare for the divination, set yourself in a quiet place where you will not be interrupted. Light an incense stick. You can add a candle if you feel it is appropriate. Connect with the Universal energies, your guardians, and the I Ching guardian lineage, if you can. The idea is to turn it into a ceremony and make it as special as it should be.

The rest is simple. Traditionally, the ancient Chinese would use a turtle shell and throw sticks in it. Although that could be a hard thing to do for most these days, sticks can be used on two open bowl. But if you are like most modern I Ching users, three coins will suffice. Any coins will do. I will write about the coin method here to get you going.
