What Are YOU Creating?
Life is full of choices ~ in each and every moment! Today, it seems the U.S. has chosen to de-construct much of what we've built over the last fifty years.
Sometimes, it's necessary to destroy the old in order to create the new.
Many of us don't like change, although we all know deep inside that change is the ONLY constant in life . . . and if you've ever known anyone who resists change, you've probably observed that their world becomes narrower and narrower . . . which is a good definition of dying.
Our old world constructs and beliefs are dying - and its not an easy death. Many of us are afraid of death, and we react wih hatred. This is reflected all over our lovely planet right now.
Just last weekend, we lost two wonderful heroes, a soldier and a recent college graduate, who chose to defend two young muslim women from the mentally disturbed bigot who then stabbed them. Horrible, yes?
And yet, I know Taleisin's mother, Asha Deliverance. Her response to losing her son says a lot about how she raised him and why he chose the path of love and honor. In a letter to our president, Asha asked him to use the actions of her son to show us all how to live with differences, in honor and respect. My radmiration of Asha increased a hundred fold.
I was taught there are only two energies on earth - Love and Fear. Whenever we experience change, we have a choice in how we react. Will we act from Love, or will we react with fear?
In many instances, death has to happen in order to birth anew. In shamanic circles, we call this shamanic dismemberment. Like Isis and Osiris, sometimes we seem to be scattered to the four winds and buried in the underworld. In the myth, Osiris (the masculine archtype) is dismembered, and Isis, the feminine goddess, must journey to the underworld to RE-member Osiris, emerging with an entirely new form of the masculine. Our current world is dying to an out-of-balance patriarchal paradigm, and birthing anew with Feminine/Masculine balance. And you and I are part of that, with every choice we make.
What are you creating today? Are you de-constructing, or have you reached a new RE-MEMBER-ing in your life? Are you still trying to be a 'lone wolf', doing everything on your own, or have you attracted those who meet you in like heart and mind, so that you can envision and co-create, evolving a new humanity?

Hi Valued Customer,
Many wonderful things are happening right now! Ever-increasing use of renewable resources; the Paris Climate Accord ( even though our president removed us, many cities and states in our country have pledged to continue reducingour carbon footprint); more individuals and communities committing to spiritual practices and healthy, sustainable living. In ceremonies all over the world, people pray for the healing of Mother Earth, our Air, Sacred Waters, and the Fire of Life that sustains us all. Together,we are rising to whatever challenges us to become a new and better world. In every way I can, I support and share with those who are seeking a new way forward.

Using Barbara Marx Hubbard's Wheel of Co-Creation, we will learn what it takes to work together as equals rather than in a hierarchical structure.
The Wheel is a Circle. The Circle is round, with no beginning and no end, no 'higher than' or 'lower than'. My Native American Elders have always worked within the Circle of Life. My teacher. Beaver Chief, told me, "Dreams are like flowers. There's always room for another flower, another dream.
Never destroy another's dream. Just add it to yours and Co-Creation a bigger bouquet.

I'd like to make a request. Our team members have all printed the logo I've attached for these gatherings, called "The Heart of Humanity". We are all placing the logo on our altars, with the highest denomination of currency we have, and asking Spirit to send us the funding we need. If you would join us, it will strengthen the prayer.
And if you'd like to share your abundance, please donate through PayPal to Church of the Earth, a 501c3. It's tax deductible, and every dollar helps!
