Thoughts on Living Through Changing Times.

"These last two posts are not strictly about Astrology in the conventional sense. But in another way, I suppose they are? they are a response to the 'now', to the feelings and energies I feel in the world around me. In response to life itself."
As Above - So Below

Here are my thoughts on living through changing times.

"Every day is a new beginning.
Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been, and look at what can be." - Marsha Petrie Sue

At any moment here on Earth, everything you could possibly think of is taking place, every spectrum of experience is being played out.

At every moment, as well as people being hurt or killed, there are people falling in love and new life being born, as well as war and atrocity there is deep peace and genuine compassion, for all the talk of lack and depression, there is growth and abundance, for everything fake and manufactured there are thing of real innate beauty.

"Moments are determined by how we define them.
Find a good ride in every wave." - Anon

It is easy to get caught up in believing that the reported world, the TV world, the things in magazines and shops are the reality of our life. What is really going on, is that we, humankind, are one of the species alive right here, right now, on this beautiful planet we call the Earth. It is spinning in space, warmed by a giant burning star we call the Sun and orbited by our satellite the moon. There are glorious forests of green trees, enormous deep oceans ebbing and flowing, magnificent winds blowing around our planet, rain falling and watering the myriad of growing things upon its surface. There is beauty and life, real life, going on everywhere, it is what we are, what we are a part of.

"You are the energy, and the energy is you." - Berri Clove

We have a choice in every moment where our attention will be placed and focused and what energy we are adding our weight to on this seesaw of life. Do we observe and add to the worry, pessimism and despair? or do we choose to look at the beauty that is everywhere and feel grateful for the abundant, renewing life force of nature. We have a choice, which will we choose to observe today.

The more you try to fix, the more you find to fix.
Only wholeness heals. - Alan Cohen
