Here is today’s Blog in spoken word on the ‘I think Speech’ Podcast
Beloved Co-Creating Soul-Selves –
Are you ready to be a connoisseur of potent mysteries that purify the mind & nurture the soul…? What would it be like to live as a madcap, in quest of seemingly impossible imaginings – Or a fierce adept of uncertainty, in love with the unpredictable wisdom of righteous teachings…?
The truth of the spirit tells us that we are all connected to each other thru the collective unconscious – Your soul & my soul have taproots that sink deep into the memories & capacities of the entire human race…
So as we move deeper into the Easter-Tide towards Ascension – A time when the trees begin to flower & clouds call out our secret name – our taproots are ever communing in juicy delight…
O goody right…?!? Can you feel how we are in more intimate contact than ever with the primal pool of possibilities…? And that means we have the power to draw on mojo that transcends our individual personal abilities…We have access to the storehouse of eternal blessings waiting to be received…
Sweet, Ok, great, so…then ask yourself: What are you going to do with this luscious lightning; these ambrosial visions, the O-so-gooey timeless healing balm, streaming in from the beginning of time…?
Friends, if we are to make use of these gifts, then we must break taboos, buck tradition, & overthrow conventional understanding – exercising blithe grace, hug worthy gratitude & jaunty charm…
And there are a couple more caveats: The beautiful truth won’t be simple & bright; No sorry, that’s boring – it will be dense, convoluted, & kaleidoscopic…& yet, the simple things in life, the stuff we may be taking for granted, will be beaming with life-force – every floral scent floating in on the breeze, the fragrance of earth after rain, of hyacinth & lilac, the nesting song birds at dawn – the thunder at noon – may even begin to sound like an orchestra in the park, inviting you to join in…So why not tune yourself up & begin to sing the song of freedom won…

Ascension: The Secret Teachings, The Elementals, & The Etheric Christ – Hazel Archer
Calendar of the Soul – Luigi Morelli
For those who are familiar with the Calendar of the Soul we could say that during spring and summer we follow the ascent of cosmic life, cosmic light, cosmic warmth and cosmic Word as gifts bestowed upon the human being by the cosmos. By being receptive to them we strengthen our connection to cosmos and Self.
We will briefly explore the dynamics of the year, then look at what qualities of soul we need to develop as we move into spring and summer, most particularly from Easter to Ascension and Whitsun. We will look at the verses of the calendar in conjunction with the artistic renditions of Anne Stockton and Karl König, drawn for each of the verses.
We will ask ourselves: How can we live into and grow from this time of the year? How can we deepen our inner relationship to the event of Ascension? What can we receive and what can we give?

“Angels, in the early morning
May be seen the Dews among,
Stooping — plucking — smiling — flying —
Do the Buds to them belong?”
