    New Moon Phase - Moon in Libra/Scorpio
    Hellooo Free Will, fellow Carpicorn! In conjunction with the New Moon Phase, today is day 66 of the Tzolkin and a new Trecena, Cimi, has begun:

    "This Trecena starts with 1 Cimi (Death/Transformation) – surrender, forgiveness, discipline, fortitude, self-actualization, empowers staying in the moment. Every transformation offers us another beginning – another step up the pyramid to our Soul’s True Destiny."

    I'd concur with Ulli that the Divine Partnership exemplified by two souls at a similar stage of emotional and spiritual development is a pre-requisite to a true and realized understanding of unity consciousness at the collective level. It's like the difference between a Pratyekabuddha and a Bodhisattva. One has reached a certain stage but lacks true compassion and so the entire Path has not yet been traveled. But, because they have reached a certain level where they have learned to quiet the mind, have experienced Nirvana and enter into Samadhi at will, the end of the path, compassion and help for all sentient beings, is inevitable.

    Once the choice is made, it is inevitable. A Divine Partnership can only help and is probably one of the greatest teaching experiences we can have along the way to opening the heart of compassion, subduing the ego and truly becoming physically representative of the Divine on earth.

    And I could equally say that NOT having a Divine Partnership is probably one of the greatest teaching experiences.

    Source is experiencing through individuals. It makes sense to have different experiences - otherwise what would be the point

    It "could" go without saying that ALL experience is valid, that being obvious to all who have seriously contemplated life and living. So of course you are right, both sides of any discussion, belief, observation, can and should be fairly represented by their mention. Thank you for pointing it out and standing in as opposition.

    Ok Bob, a big thanks to you for the Shiva gospel. About three fourths of the way through, it occurred to me to burn a candle, and when I stood up, the video froze, I went and got the candle, lit it on the altar, lit some incence, then the instant my butt hit the chair the song resumed of it's own accord. Nice.
    Yes, funny how that works . . . at a certain point it seems that most everything is that way. Mazie & I spend a lot of time these days going "See . . .!!!" and then cracking up! I swear we've never laughed so much!

    The rational mind ran its white flag up the pole quite some time ago, so what's left these days is mostly mirth and wonder, praise and gratitude for this Mystery, and big, big love -- love that swallows us whole and burps up light.

    To have come to an incarnation where the stage of Enlightenment is set and all of the pieces are on the table, i.e. the capacity to know one's past lives, the clarity to be able to understand one's one basic motivations and intentions, the insight to be able to see into others, the ability to think multidimensionally, is the opportunity that we have all been waiting for, that the Buddhists call a "Free and Well-favored" existence. To take advantage of that opportunity which may not arise again for many millennia if ever, seems of paramount importance.

    I'd concur with Ulli that the Divine Partnership exemplified by two souls at a similar stage of emotional and spiritual development is a pre-requisite to a true and realized understanding of unity consciousness at the collective level. It's like the difference between a Pratyekabuddha and a Bodhisattva. One has reached a certain stage but lacks true compassion and so the entire Path has not yet been traveled. But, because they have reached a certain level where they have learned to quiet the mind, have experienced Nirvana and enter into Samadhi at will, the end of the path, compassion and help for all sentient beings, is inevitable.

    Once the choice is made, it is inevitable. A Divine Partnership can only help and is probably one of the greatest teaching experiences we can have along the way to opening the heart of compassion, subduing the ego and truly becoming physically representative of the Divine on earth.

    Very nicely articulated, Brother!

    I've heard some say that we can't truly return to Source until we have re-united with our other half (twin flame). I recall in fact quoting the great Tibetan adept J. Tsongkhapa to that effect, and I do have a lot of sympathy for that notion, based on personal experience. Until I met my Beloved, I simply had no way of understanding that at all. Only after our reunion did I realize why I even took this birth in the first place, and it was only at her limitiless loving touch that this heart fully opened. Her selflessness awakened my own in return, otherwise I would have wasted this opportunity of human incarnation on trivial pursuits. How could I have known? I simply had no experiential basis for comparison.

    That is not to say that there were no heart openings before, but try as I might, they had no real way to stabilize into a constant re-alignment at the emotional level, and so became mere fragments, rather than fully penetrating the contraction at the core. As you know, the whole cumulative karmic program needs to be taken down brick by brick, and that will just not happen serendipitously. It's like a fine sword being forged and beaten and refolded and submitted to the fire, and then beaten and re-submitted, until at last a worthy blade is produced that can cut through the nearly impervious armor of the egoic persona. Only then can surrender be true and genuine.

    Having said that, we can consider the matter further -- for example, the above still reflects a certain dualism, implying that we could somehow be in any kind of position or condition that is separate from Source in the first place. Now of course, we are entering into the absolute/relative truth arena, but it doesn't hurt, surely, to be reminded of our fundamental nature, which is a priori indivisible.

    Paradoxically, the only way I was able to re-cognize that prior union was through relationship, and the relationship had to be utterly mutual in submission to the fire of love. This is also, I intuit, why the celibate Xtian mystics, for example, needed to project a separate Christ-meme in order to experience that union, for after all, is it not all a projection of the One Mind Itself, mirrored in Its multiple expressions in the form of apparent individuals? So too with the Asians, and their Guru devotion. I see it all as the same motive and movement of self-transcendence based on relationship. Even those who speak of uniting with Source through the agency of the Higher Self Matrix are basically describing the same functionality.

    Anyway, don't want to ramble on, so will leave it at that for now, at least until the Devil of Poetry snags me again and I start going on and on . . .

Jonathan spoke openly about what happened and his feelings....and the DA is going forward with pressing charges and my son will have the opportunity to get the closure he deserves. He is the bravest person I know...he wants the chance to confront his dad....wow. Thank you everyone so much....it was truly felt .

    And WhiteCrowBlackDeer the comic you chose was serendipitous, my mom is a HUGE Snoopy/ Peanuts fan
