What a time we are living in! And this week is particularly powerful: a Full Moon at the 29th degree of Aquarius, the modern ruler of Aquarius (Uranus) stationary in the sky having just turned retrograde. Under the modern rulership of Uranus, the Aquarian energy opens up portals of energy and make it difficult to sleep. Uranus is known as the Awakener, and sometimes we have to take that quite literally! So today I offer you this piece of wisdom as we take the leap over the chasm of transition. ❤️
This moment humanity is experiencing can be seen as a door or a hole. The decision to fall in the hole or walk through the door is up to you. If you consume the news 24 hours a day, with negative energy, constantly nervous, with pessimism, you will fall into this hole. But if you take the opportunity to look at yourself, to rethink life and death, to take care of yourself and others, then you will walk through the portal.
Take care of your home, take care of your body. Connect with your spiritual home. When you take care of yourself, you take care of everyone at the same time.
Do not underestimate the spiritual dimension of this crisis. Take the perspective of an eagle that sees everything from above with a broader view. There is a social question in this crisis, but also a spiritual question. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension we fall into fanaticism. Without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and futility.
Are you ready to face this crisis? Grab your toolbox and use all the tools at your disposal.
Learn resistance from the example of Indian and African peoples: we have been and are exterminated. But we never stopped singing, dancing, lighting a fire and rejoicing.
Don’t feel guilty for feeling blessed in these troubled times. Being sad or angry doesn’t help at all. Resistance is resistance through joy! You have the right to be strong and positive. And there’s no other way to do it than to maintain a beautiful, happy, bright posture. This has nothing to do with alienation (ignorance of the world). It’s a resistance strategy.
When we cross the threshold, we have a new worldview because we faced our fears and difficulties. This is all you can do now: Find serenity in the storm. Keep calm, and pray every day. Make a habit of meeting the sacred every day. Show your resistance through art, joy, trust and love.
~ These words are attributed to Joseph White Eagle, a Cree leader in Canada. This piece is also attributed to a Hopi prophecy from Chief White Eagle, who died in 1914. I was unable to determine the true source, but it’s a beautiful piece and worthy of sharing in any case!
Thank you so much for such helpful and inspiring words during this sad and challenging time. My heart aches for the troubles in the world, so many of them. I pray for us all.
I’m glad it’s helpful, Linda. These are indeed difficult times but we must somehow find a way to find peace, and to do what we can to help. ❤️
This perfectly describes and positions this moment for me, my family, my tribe, if you will. I’m so grateful for your posting of this today.
I’m so glad it was helpful, Lauri. ❤️
How could it be from a man who died in 1914 if he mentions consuming news 24 hours a day? It is a lovely piece, either way.
Exactly, Mary Lou. There is a Joseph White Eagle, but this passage doesn’t appear anywhere in his writings. Still, it’s very relevant to where we are right now. ❤️
Nice post! Just the message I needed today! Thank you ❤️
