10:10 Testament: A friend asked me if I choose the time 10:10 for our Thought-Seed Meditation because it represents the straight line & the curve – the basis of everything…? ‘Wow, I laughed – that never crossed my mind. I hadn’t thought of that – but I guess I didn’t need to since you have’. That’s the beauty of co-creation, we all add to the narrative; we all reveal what the collective spirit wanting to bring – each hearing what speaks to us; & then we can share with each other, so the Thought-Form grows between us.
Perhaps, she explained, that message came to her because she is homeschooling. In the Waldorf education the pedagogy is based on this straight & curved line expression which is seen everywhere in nature.
Another friend said it reminded him of the binary code of 1’s & 0’s…And how we are now writing a new code into the universe!
Yet another mentioned that we have 2 chances to shine together everyday 10:10 am & 10:10 pm, …And so it is…
As we shine out from the Earth, Divine Spiritual Beings take notice, we are seen. We become lightning rods for their protection & power. We become super charged catalysts for change. The light that we generate is eternal – the future flowing into the now.
Fred Janney, co-creator of the Prison Outreach Program of the ASA, a fiery John the Baptist figure, made his uprising across the Threshold around this time last year. Last night I felt his energy strongly with us in that light.
Then the thought came: What can we do to lay a foundation of truth, justice & beauty into the world – to co-create with the so-called dead – a health bearing, life affirming cradle for the new souls that must come in as Spiritual Warriors?
What are your thoughts dear friends on our growing egregore – born 1 year ago…?
13 November 2021 – “Speaking with the Stars”: This month’s Leonid meteor shower peaks the 17th — which, unfortunately, closely coincides with the Full Moon (which will be partially eclipsed) That makes this week your best bet at spotting shower meteors. This morning offers several hours of darkness, as Bella Luna sets. The Leonids’ radiant near Adhafera in Leo the Lion is highest closer to sunrise, so try stepping outside a few hours before dawn to catch it at its best. It’s a great time to enjoy the early-morning autumn sky, which contains not only Leo but also Cancer, Orion, Gemini, Taurus and Perseus. There’s a plethora of familiar constellations and easy-to-find deep-sky beings including the Pleiades, the Crab Nebula, the Orion Nebula, and the Perseus Double Cluster.

~with the day star i exist
by the midnight Sun i sail
above the sea a single star
