?Questions?

I usually go to sleep with a question. And instead of awakening with an answer, there is often another question stirring in its place. Last night I went to sleep asking my angel: How can I find balance? (Perhaps we can be the collective “I” & ask it together?) What I awoke with was:  

  • How can I manage to be both highly alert & deeply relaxed? (Remember that Eric B. & Rakim song – Relax With Pep from the Album: Don’t Sweat The Technique?)
  • Can I be wildly curious & yet also serenely reflective?
  • Can I imagine being extra hungry to crack life’s secrets, but also at peace with destiny exactly the way it is? Is this what Trust is?

I know deep in my bones, that if we can honestly answer yes, (or at least maybe, or perhaps ok sure, let’s try) to these questions, we will get a lot of help in the coming year. The universe may even seem to be conspiring to educate & heal us, if we manage to stand at the fulcrum of these polarities – Open to receive a steady flow of clues about how to get closer to remembering our dreams & the beings working behind them.

And this is a good way to prepare for The Big Shift (Cause, yeah, I know you know it’s coming, & um really friends, it’s here) Asking us to step up in the conscious cultivation of our mental & emotional states, that will ripen us to be ready for anything. My current ‘cultivate check list’ includes:

  • a commitment to not getting lost inside my own head;
  • a strategy to avoid being enthralled with the hypnotic lure of painful emotions, past events, & worries about the future;
  • a trust in extra-sensory evidence over our time-worn dogmas & unconscious habits;
  • a talent for turning up my curiosity full blast & tuning in to the raw truth of every moment with my beginner’s mind fully engaged;
  • and an eagerness to dwell gracefully in the midst of all the interesting questions that tease & teach us.

I’m reminded of Jung’s formula, where we don’t so much solve our problems – we outgrow them. We add capacities & experiences that eventually make us bigger than the problems. Isn’t that the purpose of evolution?

We got this folks, if we stand together in the question, & answer, of love.

What human beings shall gradually acquire through working with spiritual science is an awareness that every human relationship is inwardly related to the whole of humanity and to the wider world. This is at the same time the proper way to understand Christ in our time and in the immediate future.” ~Rudolf Steiner, Problems of Society

Soul to Soul’ Festival with the Central Regional Council & Special Guests
1pm – 3pm CDT (2pm – 4pm EDT) All Hallows Eve, Saturday October 31st, 2020
Every culture has a festival celebrating their Beloved Dead. For deep in our bones we know that those who have passed through the gates of death want to work with us on the physical world, reminding us that everything physical is an outer expression of spirit.

During this time of year the veils between the worlds are thin, and the spiritual realm beckons. Having put the iron will of Michael to work in our thinking, we now have the courage to look beyond the veil of the material world into the spirit realm, the place of our beginning and our ending, only to begin again and yet again…for every ending is a new beginning.

We will open with some poetry and music played by Carol Kelly, followed by an enactment of an original script by Hazel Archer-Ginsberg, based on indications from Spiritual Science.

We will go into small breakout groups to explore the theme: “Who do you want to be in the new year”.

Eurhythmy Prayer & Halleluiah + more TBA
