    I wonder if you can tell me more about this:
    Quote are slowly pulled upward into the cacophony of the dysfuction most of this planet lives in. Most of worldly woe comes from being ungrounded and forgetting who we are and how blessed we are.
    because I am wondering whether spiritual growth doesn't cause one to become ungrounded as well. If this is the case, then it is not always being slowly pulled upward into that cacophony, but also towards more spiritual pursuits? I don't know, just wondering.

    Much Love,
    I find your questioning somewhat circular to me, but I will endeavor to answer.

    Spiritual growth does not cause one to become ungrounded, usually. Too much spirituality can. Spiritual growth will precede from healthy roots, (grounded) and grow upward. Feet on the ground and head in the clouds is what I call being "large". A giant, of sorts. The big view is yours, all while having your feet on solid ground. Lofty thoughts are grounded in the reality of your creaturehood. The DNA of the body is enhanced and new possibilities arise.

    Spiritual pursuits can lead to extreme ungrounding if one leaves the ground. Some people believe in angels, yet are never on time and have trouble with appointments because their spiritual preoccupation makes them believe such earthly orderliness is the province of 3-Ders who do not commune with the angels, or fairies or other non-corporeal entities. The New Age is full of such sorts. There are New Age leaders who believe in JP Morgan more than of what they profess and charge for. There is a spiritual sucker born every minute and PT Barnum has inspired many who fill the upper echelons of the spiritual movements.

    The bottom line is the understanding and balance of the Elements. It is the basis of all Alchemy. The personal being the most important because it is the doorway to the other pursuits. The cacophony is the result of disempowered and basically ignorant adults shaping the lens of infants and the young. Many people will go to their graves with the emotional understanding and traumas of a 9 year old. I know very few true adults. You run into more than the general population in places like PA. One candle is very bright in the darkness too.

    Jesus said "Judge not, lest you be judged". Sounds very balanced to me. Only hypocrites fear honest judgement and his admonition was particularly directed at the many finger pointers of righteousness that surrounded him. He was cautioning them and not issuing a prohibition on discernment and forming an opinion from what is gleaned. Many use the "judgement" or "judgemental" phrase as a shield or barrier to hide behind when seen correctly.

    Pardon the tangents. My thoughts tend to come in packages. LOL

    Some wise words from my Vedic friend, especially timely i thought.

    "Moon is besieged between mars and saturn in virgo which can be frustrating for the feelings.
    time to step back and let things be, as the tendency to criticise may result. With all this in virgo it
    would be a good time to take beech flower essence to develop tolerance and avoid reactive criticism.
    Saturn is now stationary and inching forward back towards libra and more positive territory.
    Mars is now aspecting saturn uranus and pluto and will form a t square with pluto and uranus the middle of july.
    This is a very tense aspect best viewed from a distance.The tendency for mars to criticise religious dogma/fanatisicism
    represented by pluto in saggitarius and also opposing the more radical imaginations of uranus in pisces will be prevalent.
    Better for mars to focus on the work in hand and cultivate forebearance to others viewpoints .
    This may be more easier said than done at this time,
    but some detachment at this point will go a long way to easing tensions"
    The greatest privilege of a human life is to become a
    midwife to the awakening of the Soul in another person.”

    WOW..

    "THE RAREST OWL
    The Rainbow Owl is a rare species of owl found in hardwood forests in the western United States and parts of China.
    Long coveted for its colorful plumage,the Rainbow Owl was nearly hunted to extinction in the early 20th century.
    However, due to conservation efforts, recent years have seen a significant population increase, particularly in northwestern Montana"

    yes i got fooled,

    Good morning/afternoon/evening, Villagers!
    Listening to Alabama Shakes before leaving for work. Rise to the sun.


    Rise to the Sun
    All I believe in is a dream
    I haunt the Earth though I am fully seen
    In all my years I've never felt more sure than now
    Well, I got to get off this rock somehow

    I feel so homesick
    Where's my home
    Where I belong
    Where I was born
    I was taught to go
    Where the wind would blow
    And it blows away - away

    Well, my eyes are full of stars
    But I just can't reach 'em... oh, how high they are
    I gotta believe what I'm thinking - ??
    But in a modern world that can be so hard to do

    I feel so homesick
    Where's my home
    Where I belong
    Where I was born
    I was taught to go
    Where the wind would blow
    And it blows away - away

    I wake up
    Rise to the sun
    I go to work
    And I come back home
    I wake up
    Rise to the sun
    I go to work
    And I come back home
    Come back home

    Good Morning,

    mw, I'm sorry my further questions feel circular, but what you added makes perfect sense to me now and I think I understand better.

    Quote Spiritual growth does not cause one to become ungrounded, usually. Too much spirituality can.
    That explains it. I have glimpsed spiritual growth that does not put my head in the clouds, and then there are times when I'm "upgraded" and there is such an infusion of...I don't know what it is...and it is so fast that it can take days to settle back in.

    Can music be grounding also? It is either grounding or it just plain makes me feel better to fiddle around on the piano or guitar or hubby's bass...or sing. Last night, I pulled a Risky Business while doing dishes, and I felt so much better afterwards. Felt more connected to the Here and Now, felt more settled somehow, and, of course, the dishes were done before I realized it....Win-win-win

    Much Love,

    I loved Modwiz post
    When I feel an energy-low coming on I go to sacred texts to recharge.
    That way I don't collapse in a heap on the floor, but remain standing upright,
    feet on the earth and head well beyond the clouds looking through Hubble.

    Sharing Bahai text again, as most of you are unfamiliar with it.
    The island he is referring to here is on the river Tigris in Bagdad, to where he had been exiled by the Shah of Persia, before being condemned to life imprisonment in Palestine. This time the Shah of Persia and the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire both agreed that only a permanent banishment would protect Islam.

    "One day of days We repaired unto Our Green Island. Upon Our arrival,
    We beheld its streams flowing, and its trees luxuriant, and the sunlight playing in their midst.
    Turning Our face to the right, We beheld what the pen is powerless to describe;
    nor can it set forth that which the eye of the Lord of Mankind witnessed
    in that most sanctified, that most sublime, that blest, and most exalted Spot.
    Turning, then, to the left We gazed on one of the Beauties of the Most Sublime Paradise,
    standing on a pillar of light, and calling aloud saying:
    'O inmates of earth and heaven! Behold ye My beauty, and My radiance, and My revelation, and My effulgence.
    By God, the True One! I am Trustworthiness and the revelation thereof, and the beauty thereof.
    I will recompense whosoever will cleave unto Me, and recognize My rank and station, and hold fast unto My hem.
    I am the most great ornament of the people of Baha, and the vesture of glory unto all who are in the kingdom of creation.
    I am the supreme instrument for the prosperity of the world, and the horizon of assurance unto all beings.'
    Thus have We sent down for thee that which will draw men nigh unto the Lord of creation."
    ("Tablets of Bahá'u'lláh Revealed after the Kitab-i-Aqdas", p. 122)

    Hi 1inMany,

    Catching up over the last day or so's posts, found yours and wanted to say, my heartfelt love to you and Mike, sending strength and love for you both to take as you want and need it.

    About what you said about Mike and Bipolar... please let Mike know that if he ever wants a natter about it I'll bore him to pieces explaining my denial and refusal to take meds for it too ;-)


    Love, peace, happiness, and much success to you both.

    John


    Quote Posted by 1inMany (here)
    I'm reaching out for help....again. I hate doing this. I have to be pretty desperate to ask for help...as so many of you all do, too. I just spoke with Mike about the Boss/job/our future. Honestly, he is in a place of despair. Coincidentally, or not so coincidentally, everybody around here, including Mike, is not feeling well physically.

    Apparently, the letter of intent - or offer to buy Boss' company - has not been well received. We knew this might happen, but I think in the back of Mike's mind he was hoping this would be the option that materialized. If this option materialized, according to Mike, he/we would be able to retire at some point. The Build-It (building a new company from scratch) would not afford any retirement options, and taking the Indiana job would not either. We used to have a nest egg, but it is now exhausted...taking care of people...as is the right and really only use for money if you ask me. But, I understand his fear that he will be "working for the man" for the rest of his years, and that 30 or 40 years of work will be "for nothing."

    This thinking is disturbing to someone who has faith that everything will be okay and that we will be taken care of. The life we have shared has shown that "taken care of" may mean that we sleep in the car. Of course, I guess that is in the realm of possibility, but not probable. He has not ever chosen medication to treat his bipolar disorder, mostly because he denies having it. However, every family member - siblings, children, you name it - has been diagnosed. I mention this because when I say despair, I really do mean despair and I say so sheepishly but in all seriousness.

    At this point, he wants to take a job with the Indiana company, and forget building anything. I support him wholeheartedly, but I do not think our separate living arrangement would change So, this makes things a little more complicated even as it gets him away from his Boss the quickest (which is his desire).

    Anyone who has a little to share, would you send a booster our way?

    You know I appreciate it very much.

    Much Love,

    And here is the passage where Baha'u'llah revealed that the Lord of this age wants to abolish clergy.

    "Be thou of the people of hell-fire, but be not a hypocrite.
    Be thou an unbeliever, but be not a plotter.
    Make thy home in taverns, but tread not the path of the mischief-maker.
    Fear thou God, but not the priest.
    Give to the executioner thy head, but not thy heart.
    Let thine abode be under the stone, but seek not the shelter of the cleric
    .

    Thus doth the Holy Reed intone its melodies, and the Nightingale of Paradise warble its song,
    so that He may infuse life eternal into the mortal frames of men,
    impart to the temples of dust the essence of the Holy Spirit and the heavenly Light,
    and draw the transient world, through the potency of a single word, unto the Everlasting Kingdom."

    (From a Tablet - translated from the Persian)

    WOW..

    "THE RAREST OWL
    The Rainbow Owl is a rare species of owl found in hardwood forests in the western United States and parts of China.
    Long coveted for its colorful plumage,the Rainbow Owl was nearly hunted to extinction in the early 20th century.
    However, due to conservation efforts, recent years have seen a significant population increase, particularly in northwestern Montana"

    Wow is right, Astrid! Is this for real?

    This post is not addressing you, Astrid, but just expressing my thoughts about photoshop and it's various applications

    Creating myth or mythical creatures with the idea of inspiring everyone
    and thus prompting them to search for proof of such in the worlds beyond ordinary perception
    is something quite wonderful.

    Very distinct from deception, which has the aim to confuse and misdirect.

    Thanks for bringing this "owl" to our attention, Astrid,
    especially at this time where the current Pluto Uranus square has opened inter-dimensional flood gates
    which allow a whole host of deceivers to rush into our 3d existence and mess with people's minds.

    The give-away is that the green feathers on the belly become yellow halfway through, and instead of seeing each feather distinctly there are many blurs.
    I would say flush it out, Pickle, or you are left with no space in your reality for the true gems you might find.

    Yes well .. In shamanism we come across mythical animals all
    the time . So no big deal . I don't feel so much like I have been
    fooled but more that I have a new friend to play with

    Some wise words from my Vedic friend, especially timely i thought.

    "Moon is besieged between mars and saturn in virgo which can be frustrating for the feelings.
    time to step back and let things be, as the tendency to criticise may result. With all this in virgo it
    would be a good time to take beech flower essence to develop tolerance and avoid reactive criticism.
    Saturn is now stationary and inching forward back towards libra and more positive territory.
    Mars is now aspecting saturn uranus and pluto and will form a t square with pluto and uranus the middle of july.
    This is a very tense aspect best viewed from a distance.The tendency for mars to criticise religious dogma/fanatisicism
    represented by pluto in saggitarius and also opposing the more radical imaginations of uranus in pisces will be prevalent.
    Better for mars to focus on the work in hand and cultivate forebearance to others viewpoints .
    This may be more easier said than done at this time,
    but some detachment at this point will go a long way to easing tensions"
    This post is not addressing Astrid, either, but rather the Vedic astrologer quoted here.
    I know he is talking about the constellations here, as they were over two thousand years ago.

    Trying to resurrect astrology to a place where it can get a proper foothold,
    after having been bashed for the last two hundred years with the label of pseudo science
    becomes so much harder when these ancient practices are blended into the mix.

    Anyone beginning to learn astrology would go:
    Hey! This cannot be!

    Uranus in Pisces? Pluto in Sagittarius?
    When we just learnt that it was Pluto's entrance into Capricorn in 2008
    which caused the huge decline into poverty and loss of houses.
    Saturn in Virgo?
    Besieged?
    When they are still 27 degrees apart?

    In my view the least thing astrologers all over the world can do in order to get better at interpretations
    is to agree on a single system with regards to where signs begin and end.

    Most people know by now that Sagittarius is associated with religion, philosophy and higher leaning,
    yet Capricorn rules the financial and material world.

    So how is a beginner then to reconcile what happened in September of 2008 when Pluto according to Vedic astrology was still in Sagittarius?

    Furthermore, Vedic astrology never even knew about Uranus, Neptune nor Pluto.

    It is true, however, that there will be a T-square formed by Mars, Uranus and Pluto coming up in July.
    Very, very tricky period, indeed, and far more volatile than December 2012.
    I suggest that the Villagers form a circle and hold hands then.
