Saving the Planet

Whatever the cause, climate change is being proven scientifically to be far more serious than has been believed before. Reports this week say we have 12 years only to save the Planet from catastrophic events resulting from human action, unless there is a revolution in how we live, now.

The Kavanaugh Firestorm

The fires that have raged over Brett Kavanaugh and his suitability to be a Supreme Court judge have subsided since his confirmation on Saturday, but the embers smoulder, ready to reignite over his name, another name or over nothing. A wildfire is burning over swathes of the United States, and it threatens to be fiercer still in time to come.

Generosity of Spirit

 

As evolving souls, our constant test and goal is to feel and to act with generosity of spirit, in a spirit of nothingness.

Cosmic Pathways

 

There is growing talk about the commercialisation of the cosmos. Scientists speak seriously about occupied houses on the moon in the foreseeable future, about the mining of precious resources in the solar system, about the imminence of space tourism and even about space wars as nations begin to fight over possession of space territory.

Boris, and an Inconvenient Truth

 

Some years ago I was invited to attend a talk by a senior member of the Anglican Church. He was a good and engaging speaker, but shocking in his dissection of the beliefs and practices of Catholicism, Islam, Buddhism and other world religions in an attempt to prove that the only valid church in the world was “ours”, and how flawed were the others. Even more shocking, to me, was the complacent approval with which his address was received by his audience, largely fellow-believers.

Mercury Retrograde Playing the Lion

 

It is no coincidence that the retrograde Mercury which began last week is governed esoterically by Leo, the sign of individuality, of power, and of truth, at a time when our world is in confusion as to whether it wishes to be governed by the Fish or the Water Bearer, illusion or reality, ego or inclusiveness.

The Blood Moon, and the Hand of God

 

As much of the world is consumed by relentless solar fire power, it is no coincidence that the strongest, longest Blood Moon of the century will occur just as heavy storms break the heat and Mercury dances backwards, along with several other planets. The portents of momentous events to come are in place.

Hubris and Ego

 

A word often used for hubris is ego. Ego, the attribute of focus on and often delight in the self, can be a sign of insecurity as well as of confidence, while hubris, however, is always about self-importance and pride. Either way, hubris and ego are an undesirable focus on the self to the exclusion of the well-being of others: it is the doctrine of the I not the We.

Enlightenment and the Return of the Christ

 

This is the time of enlightenment, when humanity as a whole and we as individuals are brought to a conscious understanding of the truth. It is recognised, too, as the highest and final spiritual state it is possible for us to achieve as human beings, and gaining enlightenment brings a stop to the turning of the wheel of reincarnation. The soul has learned everything, and is merged with Spirit.

The Energy of Solstice Change

The energy of solstice change woke me early today, along with the pre-dawn song of blackbirds and the chatter of bats returning to their roosts under my windows. It feels momentous, infinite, rich and transitory, a day to remember but which in the human passage of time I am likely to forget. It does not matter.
