Chuck’s Place: Awe Over ARMAGEDDON

What’s next? Volcano, new dawn, or both?

As if regressing America to its glory days of industrial giants and fossil fuels weren’t enough, we now have England being spurred to reinstate the dominance of the British Empire. Thank you, Hindu science, for the framework of Kali Yuga as a rational framework with which to understand this fantastical end of an era.

Never underestimate the value of a psychological defense. Of course, defenses obscure reality, but they do provide a perch to rest some cohesion of self upon, especially as we absorb the impact of the meteor of now.

In shamanic nomenclature, we are all experiencing a blow to the world assemblage point, that collective agreement that has for so long provided us with the consensus reality we have known as our world. The impact, however, is not Armageddon, unless one chooses that interpretation. The alternative is to choose awe in the face of sheer magic.

Indeed, the fanciful tricksters in charge now are the circus sideshow performers that incite and attempt to fixate our attention with their boastful charades, but they are not the main event. True, they have some hypnotic powers to peddle their versions of a new assemblage of reality, but their efforts are really just fleeting distractions.

The main event is Nature herself, as she rapidly reshapes the face of the Earth. Denial is one masterful defense. Indulge it while you can, but its foothold is shaking in its boots. At its core, even the human animal senses the mighty changes afoot.

The gift of now is the opportunity for fulfillment in this time of completion, for that is what we are dealing with now, the completion of one cycle before the beginning of the next. As our illusions shatter, the shadow comes to light. Who really could deny that the dark side of the shadow is having its day? But enough of that, it’s actually becoming boring.

Indeed, all must face the suppressed, the repressed, and the fullness of the unknown and unloved self. Nature, in her fullness, demonstrates the way now: from the sunlight of the day to the darkness of the night, it’s time to accept and integrate the dark side of the moon. That which creates also destroys. Without destruction we’d be stuck, replaying Shangri-La forever.

On the other hand, can we face and realize the golden side of our own shadow? The energy of now, in this time of completion, is shattering the limiting beliefs that have held us back from truly growing into the fullness of our beautiful selves.

Fear, doubt, shame, and inertia have provided safe places in our old world habitat, but the new world we are entering is a world governed by the magic of intent. Intend it and it will be so. Intend to realize the fullness of you and allow the energy of now to shape and materialize that dream.

Don’t be fooled by the destruction of now. Without clay, the potter’s wheel cannot throw us a bowl. Our Earth is simply spinning and reformatting its clay. Our intent is the architectural blueprint for our place in the coming new world.

Do your part. Keep it simple. Take full advantage of the gift of now. Face and reconcile with your personal darkness, then allow yourself to become your golden loving self, fulfilled to the brim.

It truly is all about intent. Intend awe over Armageddon!

Intento!

Chuck

Moderation and balance are necessary. Their opposites, excess and imbalance, result in chaos, illness, and loss. Allow limitation into your life, in all areas, in order to achieve moderation and balance and so that chaos, illness, and loss may reduce, and so that your own negative impact upon your body and your life may be limited and balance maintained. In so doing, your negative impact upon the planet will reduce as well, for it is time for all humans to think beyond themselves, for there are other humans and other living creatures that are impacted by how the human being lives. All must take responsibility by doing their part to save the planet. Keep moderation and balance in your mind and in your actions, at all times. Limit yourself and limit your negative impact upon the planet and upon all other living beings. For this reason alone, limitation is good. Act personally and you also act globally.

Maintain your personal balance of mind, body, and spirit no matter what is going on in the world around you. Your own stability matters above all else, for if you are not stable and balanced in your own life, the world around you will dissolve into chaos. You are totally responsible for your own personal world, inside and out. You and your energetic balance do matter. Keep this in mind as you do your part to save the world. And that is not an exaggeration, for you, simply by being alive, have the potential to be part of the solution to save the planet. It’s your world and it’s your choice. Begin with yourself, within and without. Stay in balance and do your part. Save yourself, save the planet.

The tides are turning, the winds shifting, the big changes coming. No matter what happens keep your spirit up front and in command. Notice that even as your body ages and changes your spirit is strong, constant, and steady. Hold yourself accountable within your own small section of the world so that your physical impact upon the planet is lessened, but at the same time expand your spirit awareness so that you may energetically have far greater impact on the rest of the world. In all you do be generous of spirit, loving of heart, and, above all, send healing energy to the Earth, the heavens, and the living beings that reside upon your planet with you. Your energy matters greatly. Keep it honed and active in this manner. And know that you are not alone, for there are many in like consort doing the good work of energy healing. Let every breath be an energetically healing breath for all.

Study nature, its unpredictability, its dependability, its beauty, its fury, how it is one way and then another, fine and fantastic then cruel and harsh. The human being is a creature of nature, living in nature, part of it all. Your survival depends on what nature provides. Even though you may feel far from what you consider nature it surrounds you with day and night, light and dark, wind and clouds, rain and snow. You can’t escape it.

Study it. Respect it. Be in awe of it, for it is both your kindest friend and your worst enemy. It can hurt and harm or soothe and delight. Make peace with its dichotomies, its fickleness and its abrupt changes, as well as its peaceful beauty. Get along with it by being kind and attentive to the earth, your true mother, who provides you with so much. Study her, get to know her intimately. It may be your only recourse in a rapidly changing world.
