2008 Capricorn ~ Reflections: How We Meet Our Fundamental Needs

All Seeds Germinate in Darkness

"One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that was going on inside himself. He said, "My son, it is between two wolves ... One is evil: anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego. The other is good: joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf wins?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one I feed." (from Aluna Joy Yaxkin / Click Here for Full Article)

As the above parable illustrates so beautifully, we always have a choice as to which part of our shadow and light nature we will feed in any given moment, and both are widely available at this time because we are at a crossroads. We are beginning a major, new chapter, individually and collectively. And the choices we make this year will set the tone for years to come, so be present as you choose each thought, each emotion, every word, every response and every action!

The power of "now" includes a potent connection to Source because we are in the void. All seeds germinate in the darkness and depending on what your "intent" is, will determine the "seeds" you plant and the quality of nourishment/care you give them to grow properly. Will you "grow" (create) more darkness or Light in your life? body? home? environment? community? planet?

Scientists claim that 95% of our Universe is invisible, unquantifiable and considered "dark matter", they don't fully understand its magnitude or power, they cannot define it, they cannot see or touch it, but they know it's there. They can detect a "force" - a "movement" - and an "energy" that clearly exists and affects the 5% of matter they can see, touch and define. This speaks volumes to the energy of creation. This says to me that 95% of the power to create is INVISIBLE! This is another way of saying that you create with intent, emotion and passion (all invisible) ... thought precedes physical manifestation ... imagination creates reality. If we are only accessing a minute percentage of our brains, are we also only accessing 5% of the Universe and all its power, magic and gifts? The point is, you are here, living and awake during a monumental time in our planet's history, what will you create during the time you are here and how will it have meaning for you?

Our thoughts are manifesting with lightening speed, sometimes before we've even been able to complete the thought, the Universe has revealed the results before our eyes. The choices you make this year are vital to which energies and ideas you will "feed" and manifest going forward. The mass consciousness is rooted in fear, which is where the powers that be would want them, docile, controlled and predictable. However, many are awakening from their deep slumbers and recognizing their personal truth and remembering what a short period of time we have here on this planet. We must maximize the time we have left being and doing what creates and maintains FLOW ... the flow of love, the flow of energy exchange, the flow of creative juices, the flow of abundance ... flow and reciprocity.

Planetarily, we are at this crossroads, truly things could go either way, so it is up to each powerful individual to "feed" the good ~ the Light within Self and others. Create the community you want to be a part of ~ by "being" what you want to attract. "Be the change you want to see in the world." (Ghandi) Inhale back your own authority, be responsible for who you are, how you feel and what you create in this world, visible and invisible. Be honest with your Self and check all aspects of your personal structure and foundation (for your life). What supports you when NOTHING & NO ONE else does? Are you going to continue on the path you are already on? or choose a new, uncharted path? I say, use the next quarter to review, then move forward when Saturn does in May.
