Few would argue that these days, coffee has become more than just about drinking the beverage itself. Especially if you’re out ordering coffee at a local coffeehouse. From the wide range of specialty drinks to the time we actually spend at a coffeehouse—socializing, working and, of course, drinking coffee—our “coffee experience” has become just that—an experience.

Pisces Light, Ends The Darkness

Pisces Light, Ends The DarknessWe are living within the Light of Pisces, the “Light of the World that ends forever the darkness of matter.” Potent words for the two fish, one facing downward toward matter and the other facing upward, yearning for the Path of Return. Connecting the two fish is a silver cord. The Pisces glyph represents the life of humanity – leaving our Spiritual home, entering Earth (form and matter), experiencing passion, suffering, attachments, separations, and eventual liberation and redemption (upliftment of all matter into the Light).

The longer you live here, the more likely you are to develop certain habits. You may like your sushi prepared a certain way, so suddenly you’re frequenting that one sushi spot that totally satisfies you. Perhaps there’s a particular bike spot that just has the right vibe, or a local bookstore whose dedicated efforts to reaching out to the community is something you truly value. Individually, these portals may seem like just another thing that is in your life, but really, they are much more.

Pure Monday, Ceremony of Mutual Forgiveness

Pure Monday, Ceremony of Mutual ForgivenessThis last week of February has an added day. It’s leap year. Thursday, Mercury joins the Mars retrograde. We ponder upon many things but cannot act on them until after April 13 (Mars turns direct]. Mars retro restrains us in order that we reassess, reorder and review. Friday is the feast day of St. Matthias replacing the disciple Judas after his betrayal of Christ (a developmental stage).

Does evil exist?

Does evil exist?  Unfortunately, I believe it does. I think when the Universe was created there was no evil. Human beings are greedy, and I think that that’s where evil comes from. I think that religions try to prevent evil, people but they also reinforce it by saying dont be evil or you'll go to hell. I believe that we have to teach people not to be evil, which is sad.

Best of Santa Cruz 2015

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
