My father in law, who was like a true father to me, died this past Tuesday May 10. I will be attending funeral services this coming weekend and will not put out a report for May 15-21. Next Saturday May 21 will be our next Perspectives from the Sky. It will be just 10 days before the first of three eclipses, on June 1. We will write extensively about the eclispes then and in the next few weeks. See you then.
The winds of change are blowing in forcefully, bringing in storms of the Eclipse season. Though the first eclipse is three weeks away, ocurring on June 1, it is normal to be feeling its meaning this far ahead.
This past week, synchronized closely with the New Moon in Taurus, the USA assassinated Osama Bin Laden. Obama killed Osama, guess some cosmic joke, but not so funny.
It is getting more and more evident that two parallel worlds are colliding. And in the collision, it is time to choose one world or the other, to make a commitment.
That old world showed its ugly face this past week when the killing erupted in our world and collective consciousness. On the surface it looks heroic and it was sold that way. The demon Osama needed to be killed for his killing of almost 3000 people during the 9-11 tragedy.
But is it not important to keep our core values no matter what we do? I thought we believed in putting someone on trial first to prove their guilt. Even the nazis in the World War II murdering of millions of jews were put on trial.
And why was it OK to kill an unarmed Osama, and not bring him in for trial? Wouldn’t that trial help us to better know this man and the culture he emerged from? Is this “eye for an eye” revengeful Old Testament brutal value the best our human family can express?
And how about the fact we illegally invaded the sovereign country of Pakistan to carry out this killing? Would we not be enraged if China invaded our country, for instance, in order to assassinate someone who they believed perpetrated a grave unjustice to their people?
And why was Osama buried at sea within 24 hours of his death? That was not normal Islamic burial procedure. What was our government trying to hide?
President Obama showed us such promise as a candidate for president. Who is he? Obviously he is part of the Old World Empire that is about survival of the fittest brutality, and subsequent abuse of power. Last week, just before the killing of Osama, we bombed a compound of Moammar Gadafi and killed his son and two of his grandchildren. Where is the outrage in the media and world about that? How can that be OK? Why do we buy into the demonizing of certain leaders, then invade their countries, as we did with Iraq and Saddam Hussein?
How can it be Ok for the western world and USA to go into another country now like Libya and bomb its people? How can we say we are trying to protect innocent civilians while we kill innocent civilians there? And why are we really there? There are people being abused and innocents killed in so many places around the world.
We must choose now between the two parallel worlds colliding. The astrological aspects and especially the eclipses have lately been bringing in such ferocious storms, like the revolutions in the Middle East, and the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan.
More big events are coming this new Eclipse Season, whose winds are already blowing in. The intensity will continue to increase. Our world will continue to be rocked.
Time to choose. What do you believe in? What kind of world do you want the succeeding generations to inherit?
Loyalty is a great trait, but when do we need to find a higher allegience? My loyalty is to the values my country was founded on, not to what it has become in the world, an Empire seeking to perpetuate its power and wealth.
The USA is built on such divine principles like equality for all, and liberty from tyranny, and self determination. Does not a another country have the right to self determination? Do not all people deserve liberty and equality?
There are two parallel worlds developing. Time to choose as the events in the world and our personal lives intensifies. Those choosing the New Aquarian Age will reap the benefit of greater emotional, mental, physical and spiritual health. There is more magic and sychronicity, more love and care. It may not always be easy, but if at each crossroads one chooses what is in line with Universal values and Universal cycles and signs, one will keep evolving.
If we choose to stay stuck in an old dying world losing its values, then our souls and spirits will die too.
As the eclipse season blows in now, let it awaken you to truth and love. There is a new world to create now, and we can only build it if we let go of that old paradigm for living on this Earth.
We need to heal our realtionships with one another and the Earth. We must focus on what is important, the crisis facing our human family. We can no longer put blinders on and just try to find stability in the status quo of our personal lives. Stability and security are not the most important values we possess as humans.
We are inherently beautiful creatures who can combine our animal instincts with our divine aspirations. We have created beautiful art and music, are able to love and find compassion. We have great minds capable of creating amazing technology and scientific truths, and the ability to find truth. We have developed amazing abilities to communicate.
And now we sit approaching a new Aquarian Age, on its precipice. Our world has gotten so small with mass communication, mass transit and commerce. And yet we know little about Unity and our common humanity. We have built weapons that can destroy us all quickly, but do not know how to have empathy and make deep and healthy connection with those who have differences with us.
We still fight for who will get the biggest share of the pie, and never realize that those who suffer could be us, in fact are us.
Let this Eclipse season help you to let go of that which keeps you from your soul self, your authentic self, from your connection with the Unity of all.
This is not about being a good person or being only in the light. This is about being whole, being integrated with all the real and authentic facets of your self and what it is to be human. But it is also about realizing we are in an important and critical time on planet earth for humans and we must find our higher selfs now, the selves that rise to the occasion and find the solutions we need to save our planet and our human family.
Make the changes in your self and in your personal life, as you become the change you want to to see in the world.
