Describe the ideal reality show based in Santa Cruz.

I think my ideal reality show about Santa Cruz would be following the youth that live here and all of the different challenges that they face—their triumphs, the social interactions. I think that would be pretty interesting.

Earth Day—Earth, Humanity’s ‘Shadow’

Earth Day—Earth,  Humanity’s ‘Shadow’

Sun enters Taurus Thursday, Saturday’s a new moon and Sunday’s Earth Day with Mercury and Uranus connecting Aries (all things new). A message is available for humanity concerning the Earth (a conscious Being) concerning our present future, which we, World Servers, must create. Mercury (Raphael and Hermes, the Healers) will help. The Great Invocation, the great Mantram of Direction for Humanity, was given at the 1945 June full moon festival (after WW II).

Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

Full Moon & Farewell to a Poet

Simultaneous (Jewish, Catholic, Esoteric astrological) religious and spiritual festivals occur this weekend, creating within humanity coordinated, synchronized and harmonized prayers to God. Concurrent religious festivals form the foundation of the Aquarian new world religion. We are at the end of Holy Week, leading to Easter Sunday’s Resurrection Festival.

Holy Thursday night is the Last Supper followed by our Lord’s (Pisces World Teacher) betrayal by Judas (his role to play) for 30 pieces of silver.

I suppose there’s nothing wrong with tossing yourself a little nod of approval every now and then. That seems to be the case this week as the City of Santa Cruz gears up for its official Proclamation Day. For those of you who have attended events where a proclamation from the city’s mayor was in order, you already know much of the script features one word repeatedly—whereas.

Heart Me Up

In defense of Valentine’s Day

 

“be(ing) of love (a little) more careful”—e.e. cummings

Wednesday (Feb. 10) is Ash Wednesday, when Lent begins. Friday (Feb. 12) is Lincoln’s 207th birthday. Sunday is Valentine’s Day. On Ash Wednesday, with foreheads marked with a cross of ashes, we hear the words, “From dust thou art and unto dust thou shalt return.” Reminding us that our bodies, made of matter, will remain here on Earth when we are called back. It is our Soul that will take us home again. Lent offers us 40 days and nights of purification in preparation for the Resurrection (Easter) festival (an initiation) and for the Three Spring Festivals (at the time of the full moon)—Aries, Taurus, Gemini. The New Group of World Servers have been preparing since Winter Solstice. The number 40 is significant. The Christ (Pisces World Teacher) was in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights prior to His three-year ministry. The purpose of this desert exile was to prepare his Archangel (light) body to withstand the pressures of the Earth plane (form and matter). We, too, in our intentional purifications and prayers during the 40 days of Lent, prepare ourselves (physical body, emotions, lower mind) to receive and be able to withstand the irradiation of will, love/wisdom and light streaming into the Earth at spring equinox, Easter, and the Three Spiritual Festivals. What is Lent? The Anglo-Saxon word, lencten, comes from an ancient spring festival, agricultural rites marking the transition between winter and summer. The seasons reflect changes in nature (physical world) and humanity responds with social festivals of gratitude and of renewal. There is a purification process, prayerfulness in nature and in humanity in preparation for a great flow of spiritual energies during springtime. Valentine’s Day: Aquarius Sun, Taurus moon. Let us offer gifts of comfort, ease, harmony, beauty and satisfaction. Things chocolate and golden. Venus and Taurus things.
