Steve Beckow: Up in Smoke

The central tenet of Druidry is the spiral. We experience learning, life, even existence overall as a spiral. This goes along with the concept my beloved Nish friend put to me as “everything is a circle” which is why so many tribal people build round houses and other buildings-to always remind ourselves that everything is a circle. In nature there are no corners;-)

The thing not always mentioned that is in the center of the circle and the spiral is that same thing Steve discusses near the end of this article, that “hole direct to God”.

Imho we are always traveling around the spiral and the circle, but we are both inside-IN that hole direct to God and outside-IN our obvious physical lives.

I have always known that hierarchy is false-all of it. I was born with this knowledge and awareness and no amount of browbeating, “proof” or citations of spiritual or scientific sources have ever swayed me even the tiniest bit. Hierarchy is impossible in a circle. (Hence Arthur’s Round Table;-)

To me the stone people, the trees, the wind spirits COULD NOT possibly be considered LESSER or lower beings. Anyone I think, who lives with a cat or a dog, or a bird; anyone who has ever personally encountered a dolphin, a panther, bear, bison, pelican, Osprey-indeed ANY living being-truly encountered and grokked-could never be said to be in any way lesser or lower than ourselves.Why would so many of us feel such essential awe in their presence?

As much as I admire and appreciate many writers, channels, and even books of truths such as the Sutras, Bible, Vedas etc I would like to share my own perception of truth-that it is always always there in our hearts. All of our hearts have the wisdom and they share it with it every second. The trick is not to ignore it or second guess it as our colonized enculturation so trains us to do.

When you were a child did you KNOW that animals were people too? Did you talk to trees and oceans and get replies? What made you stop knowing those things?

I am glad that AA Michael and Steve are sharing this idea of staying centered in the heart while allowing the deconstruction of the built up ideas, structures and culture that we have around us like so much intellectual armor.
Feminism, Native Studies and other forms of questioning the Colonized/Patriarchal/Civilized “way that It IS” all have this idea of deconstruction in order to reach truth and reality. If we don’t shed the armor, we will sink when we try to swim;-)

Openhearted Rebellion

Michael 56

In a recent Hour with an Angel pre-record with Archangel Michael on the angelic kingdom, AAM gave me a taste of the deconstruction of our belief systems that we may face in the upcoming months.

He disabused me of the notion that spiritual evolution is, as Rumi for instance says, (1) a straight line from mineral to plant, animal, human, angel and then back again to God.

And he disabused me of the notion that the angelic kingdom sees a being “rise” from angel to archangel through the intermediate realms to cherubim and seraphim. Instead he represented the latter as a circle.

We’re going to need to discuss the whole matter further in a future show before I feel comfortable thinking I can explain the new insights he’s making available.

But I realized that the position I was in is one we’re all going to be…

Balsamic Moon Phase – Moon in Taurus

Ruling Mahavidya – Tara

Today we connect with the energy of the sea gull. What does this photograph conjure for you?

People often have strong feelings about sea gulls. Some find them annoying and others find them relaxing because they are associated with water. In Animal Speak, Ted Andrews discusses how sea gulls are shore birds and rarely venture far from land. Shore lines, he says, are magical and mysterious in that they are neither land nor sea, but between the two.

Balsamic moon phases are magical and mysterious, too, and they also are neither part of the last lunar cycle nor part of the next lunar cycle, but between the two. Shorelines and Balsamic Moon phases are part of the Netherworld or the Spiritworld. In keeping with the energy, we are going to get magical and mysterious today as well.

Gulls are creatures of two domains: air and sea. They are masters of both. When we work with their energy, we work in two realms, too. With air, we work with communication and ideas or visions. With sea, we work with emotions and the vast world of Spirit.

Sea gulls are associated with communication, proper behavior, and courtesy. Gulls teach us how to “read” other people’s true motivations in communication and their true energy (things that are not easily discernable). They also teach the importance of proper diet (diets of all kinds: thoughts, emotions, and nutrition).

So today we are reading between the lines, picking up subtleties, shoring things up, nourishing ourselves properly with food, and mentally traveling in and out of spirit.

This is perfect energy for Tara as she wanes. Tara is impeccably mannered at all times – until she is pushed.

Today is big magic. Use the energy wisely and be mindful of your feelings and where you are placing your attention because all attention is empowered today, regardless of the focus. If you find yourself getting “negative” or going off center, use the sea gull’s energy to fly another way. Stay close to the shore.
