Everyone but me did a blog last week.
Everyone but me has their sh*t together.
Whiney whiney whiney.
Yup that dark moon is approaching, time to think about what you might like to release and replace. I knew I was on the wrong Timeline when I heard Mr Maxwell say the conclusion of 56 years of study is; that if you are Good, you will be Poor.
Where is all the money?
Where did all the resources go?
Perhaps it is time to realise Global stuff don't work and return to more localised forms of care. When people are deciding not to have babies, because they don't want to add to the worries of the world, we have a problem.
Can we just admit defeat and move on to other ways? Within permaculture there is no need for polluted air or lack of food. Why isn't everyone doing permaculture?
Here are Jeff and Jordan having a discussion, some well reasoned arguments, maybe.
When I was growing up, there was very little in the way of self help, let alone intuitive and gentle woman, fairy belief, literature. The Readers Digest, had odd tweaks of times different and shad/owes to explore. Getting the real stuff though was very precious. I learned my sexual education from "The Pearl", something that shall forever warp me and force me into Otheriness. Too many years, since my last confession.
Any how, how does an incredibly screwed up twenty something go from suicidal to, well, at least I have lived, still am?
The answer may flaw you, please don't let a "because you never pulled on that thread" upset you. Louise Hay and Dianne Stein, along with, Whatever was At the Library. Even back then, books were expensive.
If a pamphlet entered the house, you read it on the toilet, if nowhere else, and you read it from cover to cover.
I didn't hear of Doreen Virtue, until I came online. I still didn't see her, but she had the most wonderful readings of the Kybalion. The first time I had heard the Hermetic Principles and I pinged, I pinged hard. Here were words that expressed what I knew and was intuitively living. I then tried Doreen's meditations, of chakra cleansing. I was pretty up with chakra and kundalini through varying teachings by then, but her tapes were still good.
I purchased Doreen's esp third eye opening exercises, they were cheap as, good, involved crystal lessons as well as visualisation., Very rudimentary, but for the price and for someone who was looking to solidify all forms of Magick as being as Natural as Breathing, it was at least a sign that someone was beavering away out there, trying to get knowledge out, without the old boys network totally silencing another, lets just be loving voice. Because make no mistake, this is what the conflict is about, silencing the Lets Just Love One Another voice, especially if raised by a woman.
I did find her next incarnation with Angel beings a tad hard to follow. I know there are many beings and my life has been such, that I am very untrusting, of anything bearing gifts :) working on it. I did have a brief flirtation with Gabriel and the Kabbalah, though that, is another story, for another day. So Doreen and I parted ways.
Here, now as a woman and a would "see love upon this world" person, I ask you too remember, our roots our Ancestors and stay those knives. Doreen is one of us, she is a woman who, in spite of how things may look and turn out, put knowledge in front of us. We could pray for her. And we could also learn some lessons.
If you have been raised within Empire, no matter how Pagan you may now think you are the Christ lessons permeate our existence and programming in a way very little else has been able to do. Maybe shaved legs and pits (here's an alternative). In particular we are counselled and raised to believe in saviors, Politicians, Dads, God or Gods to name but a few. Within the spiritual community, if you get into trouble you are hard pressed not to go past the Bible and Christ. Who has not seen the Exorcist? Many people who have had encounters with weird energies such as ghosts, demons or aliens, depending on their lexicons, have testimony on the efficacy of calling on Christ. He turns up and does the job, sometimes even if you don't believe in him.
The problem of what is happening with Doreen and many others, is slightly larger than a haunting. There seem to be people within each spiritual, pagan or town community, that wish others ill and are using energy to back up their will. The gossipers at the water cooler, we can forgive, they know not what they do. But to bind, curse or malign someone, simply because they have what you want, is just a tad gnaff in the 2020's. As people who wander the borderlands, is this type of behaviour, what you want to take forth? Was all that learning ill gotten, are you so desperate for change, that harming others is the loop you have settled upon, rather than elevating?
So much hard work has gone into bringing knowledge forward, to the masses for use in elevating every-bodies consciousness, into realising the sacredness of every being. There was always going to be a price for this knowledge, many are paying it. I'm sure the Mystery Schools and Guru's, in particular are a little put out that information is now readily available online or within self, and their energy counts. The systems they taught behind paywalls, are coming to us all and coming to us almost free. Making Intellectual Property and acknowledgement of where a particular system or magickal technology comes from, twice as important. This is lineage, it is where the knowledge comes from and is every bit as important as bloodline, as all knowledge can only be viewed through the lens of perspective. A perspective that is uniquely our own, yet touched and built, through all that has touched us.
Be the kind of Other you can live with. Be your own legend. Be the Being that when the moon became dark, retreated and thought about where that thought was coming from. Be the one that sought the silence, Through the pain and discovery of self, to the triumph of thinking your own thought. Your own thought of your perspective. A thought whose lineage you can trace. Then arrive at a thought that is solely yours.
Go on I dare you.
Dark moon wishes and much, much love.
