Soulbyte for Wednesday October 2, 2019

Remain intent upon a path with heart. Reinstate that intent every day, no matter the chaos and cruelty, the destruction and despair that loom over the world. Continually sow the seeds of love and light, knowing that in time they will germinate and that new growth will occur. All things pass. The dark times must be weathered through for the light times to come again; such is the cyclical certainty of nature. Rely on that as much as you rely upon the goodness that still lives in the minds and hearts of those who hold the human spirit to be sacred and unbreakable. Intend goodness, kindness, and love, and your journey will surely be a path with heart.

Sending you love,

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

Soulbyte for Thursday July 11, 2019

After times of darkness come times of light. After a storm comes the calm. After night comes the day. Such is nature, such is the natural progression of all things. What goes up must come down; one extreme will automatically and naturally seek balance in its opposite. It’s only a matter of time before things right themselves, before loving kindness and compassion return to the planet, before all beings will be protected, respected, and valued equally. Much is already stirring in that direction. Stay in alignment with its certainty, with what is right. As things change rapidly now, know that the right direction will eventually assert itself. But no matter what happens in the short run, remain the loving being that you truly are.

Let love guide you now. From a place of loving kindness align with the world you live in, with nature, with other human beings, so that harmony may truly reassert itself and once again be the song of the land. In nature find balance and the Right Way. In nature find your heart beat’s resonance. In nature find your sustenance and your nurturance. Turn to the land, the sun, the plants and trees during the day to show you how nature works and thrives, and at night turn your eyes and hearts upward to the stars, the moon, and the galaxies and know that this too is your home. Anchor more fully in the garden you live in, Planet Earth. Keep it safe and well. Let the love in your own heart guide you to know how to do this. The knowledge is deep within you. It’s all about realizing that you are home; the Planet Earth is your current home. Care for it and love it until you leave for your next home. Though chaos may appear to have power it is no match for the heart centered power you have within you. Use it in the way you choose to live, in the way you choose to love, unconditionally, with compassion and gratitude. Though you may feel small and insignificant, it really does depends on you, for you are a significant part of the greater whole. And that matters. You matter.

Let come what may. You can’t stop nature. You can’t stop certain things. You are powerless before certain things. Admit it. And then remind yourself of what you do have power over, of what you do control, and of what you can stop. Look without and know that there are certain things that you are at the mercy of, that you cannot control. Look within and find your own power to shape yourself and your life as you would like. It is the inner power that matters, how you use it and what you bring to the table, in humbleness, in strength, in fortitude, in endurance, and in gratitude for all that you possess. Allow your inner self to guide you in making good decisions, even as you ask for guidance from your helpers, seen and unseen. Own your own power and make your way in a new direction that is right for you, in balance with nature and all that is true, within and without.
