MIRACLE OF THE MAY TREE

Last spring I really appreciated the May tree when it bloomed.  I have been anticipating it this year.  Not just the gorgeous white blossoms with their gold centers, but also the masses of giant bumble bees that hum all around the flowers.

And I love how the white petals decorate the ground for all the fertility celebrations this lusty time of the sun in Taurus, and the Feast of Bealtaine.  "Hey Hey, it's the Day of May/ Outdoor fucking begins today..."

(Here I have to insert my obligatory Fire Festival rant.  They aren't fixed dates.  Bealtaine and Samhain, and the two lesser "doorways between the worlds" are based in astrology.  Bealtaine does not occur on the First of May anymore. It is when the sun reaches 15 degrees of Taurus.  This year I think around the fifth.  Check back. I will post on the date later.)

The May Tree blossoming is something that, to experience it, I have to wait 50 or so weeks. And there is only a few short weeks to enjoy it.

I often think about how lucky we are to live in these times. This is truly the "doorway between the Ages."  And I do believe that over the next 138 years we are going to move very close to the world described in the "fiction" novel 2150 A.D. A world where almost everyone is like Jesus Christ.  Where ordinary people walk on water, telepath, and live for the greater good of all, and also a world where there is no poverty or ill health.

I believe I will live to see that future.  But I also think this is a great time.  There are so many opportunities open to people.  So many things to experience.  This is like a resting point to look back on human history from the Age of Fire, until now, the New Age, the Age of Electronic Fire.

It is cool that soon the Internet and all databases will be replaced by the telepathy and the Akashic Records, but the Internet is pretty dam cool.

We are at point where humanity is shifting and going around a corner.  A whole new vista is opening up.

Enjoy the blossoms of this rare and infrequent moment, like the blossoms of the May tree.

MORE THINGS I LEARN IN THE MOONLIGHT: UNLIMITED CAPACITY FOR JOY

Inside of every person there is an unlimited capacity for joy.  It is ever-flowing,  The fewer blocks placed in front of the "joy" outlet, the happier we feel.

The obstacles to free-flowing joy are numerous and plentiful. But they are not limitless, eternal, or ever-flowing. They can be removed.

The outlet for joy can never be completely shut off.  It can always be renewed. Sometimes you just have to find your way back to it.

Appreciation is the gateway drug to joy.

And, sometimes it is difficult to find something to appreciate. When things are going bad. But that is really when it is most important to put the blinders on.  A wonderful sharpening of the other senses occur.  Focusing on only the good in each moment, or reaching for the next thought that makes you better.

In the Law of Attraction books by Esther and Jerry Hicks (where they discuss human existence, both secular and sacred, with a consortium of Angels or Wisdom or Divinity called "Abraham") they discuss following the emotional guidance scale towards the next better feeling thought.

Let anger lead you to revenge, and then revenge to hope.

Keep going.  (The hardest to pass is really contentment.  It is easy to slide back down to boredom, and then to spice things up, since the way down is so clear and well-known, why not just go down a bit, to have something different?  This is my pattern.)

But you can bypass climbing the emotional guidance scale by allowing yourself to be constantly flooded with appreciation for what you like. (This link will take you to a page with the Scale as downloadable bookmarks.)

Even if the least promising environment it is possible to focus only on what is desirable.  Sometimes this can be as basic as "I am breathing.  Each breathe keeps alive the possibility that circumstances will improve."

And then "How happy I will be when the circumstance improves." And the more you think about what you desire, the more you see it all around you.

Let your compass be set on exactly what you want.  That way you see a "match" right away.  If you are focusing on unwanted things, then your eye will find other, similar unwanted things more quickly.

Trust that anything that makes you feel good, or "better than", is the right path.  Trust that way will emerge before you, like stones rising up from the water as you walk across the lake.

I've been really noticing lately that times of great dissatisfaction always lead to an increase in my understanding of what I really want.  And that understanding always precedes and increase in manifestation.  To experience more of what I want, sometimes I have to really look at what I have that I don't want.

So I have been learning not to hold onto any moment to tightly.  Allowing myself to go with the flow, and the flow is always willing to be dominated by joy.  To be overtaken with happiness.

I was saying to someone the other day that I have found the best thing for me to do at all times is to be an island of joy.  This is a somewhat selfish stance.  It decides to make feeling good the number one priority, and this has to be carefully managed at times.  (At sombre or sad occasions, for instance. Where it is perhaps joyful to be present, but in state of calm and stoic reverence.)

This world provides us with unlimited opportunities to experience joy.  Joy is always present.  And like light in darkness, when it is most lacking, has the most power.

Trust that joy is possible. Trust that joy is good.  Trust that the path you are in leading you to ever increasing joy and happiness. 

We were meant to live lives filled with ever-increasing joy and happiness.

EASTER MUSINGS: 138 MORE YEARS

In the novel 2150 A.D. humans have evolved to a point where almost everyone is like Jesus Christ. Humans have evolved from a ego centred "micro" perspective, to a inclusive "Macrocosmic" perspective.

There is no illness, poverty, war, crime, etc.  People can live as long as they would like- hundreds of years, and not age if they choose. Everyone can levitate, telepath, and astral project.  Humans control climate and communicate easily with other species. (There are no pets or zoos though.)

 Jesus was one of the first Macro people.  He demonstrated the three Macro qualities of Wisdom, Compassion, and Love.  Through these qualities comes the "supernatural powers" he displayed, and his lack of fear about death and physical suffering.

Someone said to me "you really think humans are going to attain that level of awareness in 138 years?"

"No," I replied. "It will take 2117 years. Only 138 left to go."
