Nature Spirits Bathe Me

The Eclipse of 2017 lives on and on.  I was sandwiched between Heaven & Earth as I laid on Earth and held hands with my friend and had a little cry.

At first, I went into the studio work intending a statement of alignment with the cosmic order.

As I worked this piece, I found my information was becoming more internal than external.

Exploration revealed that one can align externally, then the solid ‘work’ is to bring the Nature Spirits into my energetic; then the Poise is cultivated with spiritual information called Power.

For me, that Power is calm expansion.

The quest is to align internally, whatever that means to me or to you, is a moment-to-moment livingness.

Expectancy With Joy & Celebration With The Nature Spirits!

Our regional forecast for the ECLIPSE was sunny/cloudy.  I drove to my Eclipse gathering and saw many, many, many little clans squatted out in the dog park, on the community college campus grounds, in their private yards, and I sang out with thrill!

Some traditions prescribe staying inside, feel the internal work in the dark, do your personal and communal alignment.  As I felt into my reality of going “out” to a gathering, and saw people coming out of their offices and dwellings, I honored them.

We are a visual society. We want to see. And people, in their EXPECTANCY and CELEBRATION of the natural order of this unique phenomenon sought participation.

I think that EXPECTANCY IN JOY AND CELEBRATION MOVES WORLDS! We moved the skies into clarity and non-overcast. We unconsciously did “something” together because of AWE and CURIOSITY and EXPECTING-THE-BEST. We resonated with the Nature Spirits by living, simply living.

Luck Factor and How Your Natural Spirit Can Wake-Up

Assisting your Luck from the inside out is a wonderful model espoused by the ancient Stoics.  

I took a short course from Philip Golabuk of the Philosophy Center’s Fate Project, and am reviewing its essential breakdown, which I give here as the simplest of phrases, each quality can be enjoyed as a lifetime pursuit and development!

The Well-Ordered Soul

Truthfulness is at the heart of the well-ordered soul.

Showing Up (not hiding and taking your chances).

Innocence (we know so little!, so be teachable).

Diligence (each of us is presented with things which are only ours to do, conscientiously and to the best of our ability).

Dialogue calls us to humbly open ourselves to outside-ourselves discovery, as well as being intimate with the inner voice of clarity and truth, which the Greeks defined simply as happiness, as good spirit.
