Nature always gives plenty of notice to all of her creatures about what’s next: the hot days but cold nights of Indian Summer presage Winter. Flower buds in early Spring hold the promise of Summer. And every morning, the sky lights up well before dawn.
There is a profoundly deep gift of exactly this sort waiting for us within this coming Equinox – this Saturday morning, September 22, at 7:49AM PDT.
It’s a gift that illuminates the new world emerging across the Winter Solstice of 2012 – showing us that there is a way of love without fear.
Global mystic, visionary seer and Holy Man Tslew-teh-koyeh (“Beautiful Painted Arrow”) spoke recently of this opening, this opportunity:
“We’re at the end of calendar time – at the end of artificial created structures imposed on our lives. What can emerge now is a new world that we create with our hearts. Our intentions for a compassionate and caring world are now supported by all of creation.”
He’s talking about the new world we all know is possible. But here we are running like crazy people just to keep up – dealing with realities that are anything but compassionate and caring.
In the old wisdom traditions, what we call balance, and see as something precarious and very easily upset, was understood to be harmony. Being in balance is being in harmony with the flow of life’s energies.
Knowing this brings a new light to what this coming Equinox – equal day and equal night – makes possible.
At the moment of the Equinox, an energetic opening of deep harmony will occur – an opening you can pass through – passing from the “rat-race” into Presence – passing from our cultural three ring circus with it’s hyped up flashing distractions to connection with the deep flow of love and sparkling intelligence that is Creation evolving in Awareness.
It won’t spoil the surprise if I tell you that we’re being offered the opportunity to co-create reality from our hearts, including everything we’ve learned and everything we’ve yearned for – peace, sharing, well-being for all, abundance, and a compassionate world.
In a cosmic sense, a new world is as easy to create as a new day – and this Equinox sings the song of a new world in harmony.
It helps to be in a place of wild beauty – outside under the open sky. And it’s good to gather with your family and friends – your community. Because after all, we’re all in this together, celebrating the gift of life!
But where ever you are, and, even if you’re by yourself (not really, because you’re with all of us!) become quiet.
Let a ceremony move through you – a recognition of the sacred. Let yourself feel this deeply harmonious gift filling you with its luminosity – listen! Then, enjoy the day.
If you’re in Northern California, you’re welcome to join a small group of early risers on the sacred cliffs of the Bodega headlands. Meet in the ocean side parking lot at 7:00AM for tea and a walk along the cliffs to the special place where we are kissed by the infinite.
