“Supposed to Be-s – Whim or What?

Photo by Thgusstavo Santana on Pexels.com

I have friends that may have turned over their will to their Higher Self via the “Supposed To Be” Clause.

“I was taking my supplements and a extra one came out of the bottle because I was supposed to take one more.”

“My friend that I hadn’t heard from in months called me because it was supposed to happen.”

“Maybe the shaman was right and I should move to Arizona. It could be what I suppose to do,” she said.

I asked: “What do you want?”

Has our beliefs in the New Age allowed us to throw reason out the window for desperately wanting magic in our lives? If most things are governed by “supposed to be”s does that mean we have turned our lives over to God or Superstition? Part of life is about having a strong sense of will so we can release it. By making space for the unexpected or accidents we allow a space for the divine to enter – maybe. But when we begin to think that accidents are supposed to be events that happen because we’re automatically entitled mistaking happenstance for divine providence how are we to learn?

Is there not a responsibility to have a strong sense of self, a strong ego with good self-esteem and boundaries so its clear that when we release it in the present that there is the possibility of divine intervention or maybe not: It seems that accident plays a role in luck and the mystery of the divine and that supposed to be events are the hanky-panky of ego creating an illusion so we can have artificial safety.

Super Full Moon on 5/26/21 in Sagittarius

Moon at 5 degrees Sagittarius 26 minutes at 4:15 am PDT

Super Full Moon

Super Full Moons are also know for greater gravitational pulls as they are closer to Earth. Look for possible earthquakes off the coast near Los Angeles and up the coast with possible tsunami conditions however slight withing 24 to 48 hours of the exact Full Moon. Also the transformational conundrums of this Super Full Moon (SFM) could either solidly secure the electorate in California for Governor Newsom or make for a a sudden death round for funding. The fate of the nation is at stake. On the other hand the past grandiosities of the Trump ruled GOP could fall to a sudden death via past scandals ensuring a victory for Newsom. It’s neck in neck.

The physical largess of Jupiter (in Pisces) could be the arbitrator between talking it out reasonable and compromising in House and Senate struggles for a reasoned but albeit intense solutions or solutions especially with Mercury retrograding in Gemini on Saturday 5/29. Follow the money.

On a wider world perspective the Super Full Moon supports international talks, actions nurtured through group coalitions and conflict resolution in the details. This in turn is supported by the intensity of communications via Mercury retrograde on Saturday.

Over all an exciting week with resolving conflicts and negotiations galore.

Auspicious New Moon in Taurus

The New Moon and Sun, and Black Moon Lilith are at 22 degrees Taurus. A tiny digression into numerology – 11 is a Master Number as in May 11th, and 22 is also a Master Number.

Black Moon Lilith is a point representing void. When the Moon’s orbit is the farthest in distance from Earth it is Black Moon Lilith.

Taurus Glyph ©2021 F. K. Ontario

New Moon’s are about planting seeds both metaphorically and literally. Literally the ground is soft and frosts are gone in the Northern Hemisphere for planting gardens. In the Matriarchy, Taurus was the beginning of the Zodiac and was a symbol of the womb with the Fallopian tubes on top (not the bull). Increasingly the Matriarchy was thought to have originated in the Mediterranean region so Taurus as a womb for giving birth to crops and children seems organic. In the Southern Hemisphere the Autumn Equinox is just a month away so its about root crops. Farmers have long known about the effects of gravity during a Taurus New Moon – pulling roots down into the soil literally.

Traditionally the New Moon has been about the birth of new projects. With Black Moon Lilith it is the light of feeling (love) and complete thoughtforms igniting a flame to produce something new. However, we must surrender into void all the blocks we wish to be washed clean. You don’t have to use your analytical mind to surrender the this or that, just call out to the Multiverse with the intention of releasing all blocks and trust that your intention is fulfilled.

All births are messy and sticky as we emerge from conflicts with Saturn and move towards the Santa Claus-ian jolly Jupiter teetering between grandiose exuberance and wondrous generosity of spirit. Jupiter will enter Pisces on May 13 at 3:35 pm PDT meaning this New Moon will pull in enormous amounts of optimism, community spirit and the beginnings of a worlds-wide spiritual and physical transformational movement (recovery from economical collapse from COVID) at least until Jupiter retrogrades back into Aquarius at the end of July this year.

Faint unexpected luck and/or opportunity lurks in the wings – so be on the look-out for the disruptive trickster Uranus surprising you with magical opportunities.

Plant your creative seeds and roll up your sleeves as your creative juices flow and GO!

In Prisons

Photo by izhar khan on Pexels.com

We may feel that we been in prison with COVID19 due to the lockdowns. And while that is certainly true the prison mindset goes deeply into the structures of modern culture and even to the bedrock of the matriarchal and patriarchal epochs. We believe we are free when this is an illusion of both the horizontal and vertical hierarchies that were established thousands of years ago.

Using set theory we can examine the illusions of freedom based on our ancestry corresponding to the mental, emotional, genetic and cultural actions, habits and beliefs both conscious and subconscious that have become increasingly obvious in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

This is a mere teaser of what is to come…

Now

Now is all there is.

I choose Love.

Love includes all emotions positive and the so-called negative. Without the so-called negative the positives would not be known as such. The negatives and the positives are part of the bigger vast cosmos of higher consciousness.

Release, relax, surrender into the Oneness.

Ah…

A Little Ditty on the Spring Equinox 2021

In the USA the emphasis is definitely on a new beginning for the nation as a community for all. Individuals are important in the context of community and although somewhat obscured by the greater good dreams/visions, thoughts and communications as well as art and money are focused by individuals on a greater good.

Many behind the scenes wheeling and dealing for the greater good are in play as well as transformations of government and mega corporations

Markets, aka the Stock Market remains volatile – ups and downs.  More energy /money is focused on carbon neutral goals both on corporate levels and individually.

Moods may be buoyant as we face futures and actions towards these futures with multifaceted glee that includes a meeting-of-the-minds. These present actions and moods may tend to balance out an international grandiosity with local rebuilding of a mindful trust. What is a mindful trust? It is simply, gathering all the information towards holding a unity based on all pertinent information and ideas that will be put into action.

These are some of the themes we will be working on for the next 6 months.

UBI Universal Basic Income – One Solution for Changing Times

Photo by John Guccione http://www.advergroup.com on Pexels.com

Universal Basic Income could replace Social Security as we now know it. Wouldn’t UBI really be about social security? The idea of Social Security Income at age 60 or so is no longer enough because of stagnating wages and income inequality. Retirement

When we consider how Multi-National Corporations and the Super Rich have taken control of government, out-sourced jobs (used to be called “lay-offs”) and are currently automating many jobs with robots our lives and our incomes have drastically changed. Not for the better.

The Corporate-Government Complex no longer represents 99% of the former citizens – now called “consumers” of the United States of America its no wonder that extremism has flourished. Is it any surprise that we’re called consumers? As consumers – serfs – slaves we represent a small indispensable cog to the greed of capitalism. We can’t be citizens any longer because citizens have a say in government. Government representatives don’t work as our representatives any longer because they have been bought by left and right leaning corporate interests. Our democracy is gone now folks and we have an oligarchy.

UBI is both a small and a large step towards reclaiming our rights as citizens and represents a social net for everyone. UBI goes hand in hand with universal healthcare. Is this socialism? No, this is community democracy, or community members caring about one another socially and economically. It is a requirement for a civilized society, otherwise are we not serfs and /or slaves to the rich?

Eventually UBI might look like this:

  1. Parents living together would get a higher rate of UBI with one or more children.
  2. Single parents with one or more children would get a higher rate for one or more children (higher than 2 parents living together).
  3. Children entering Pre-School at age 4 would get UBI for expenses and /or held in trust with close to prime interest rates until the age of 25. Children remaining as dependents of parents after the age of 18 to 25 would get a smaller UBI tied to work. Parents with dependent children living at home up to the age of 25 would receive higher UBI.
  4. Everyone ages 18 and older would receive the baseline of UBI until disability or death.
  5. Universal Health Care would take of the medical costs.
  6. Eligibility for UBI would begin starting at 18 years old making $55,000 or less per year; a figure may/can be adjusted based on cost-of-living and inflation.
  7. All working members of the population would pay a tax based on a graduated scale. employers would deduct from gross wages as it is now with the exception on SSI deductions being translated into UBI. Individuals making $1,000,000 or more would have an extra tax to support the program. Large Corporations would pay a tax to support the program.

The Law of Three Supports The Multiverses

9-3-6 in The Law of Three | © 2021 F.K. Ontario

In today’s world we need the third force. Here’s why.

We are surrounded by negative versus positive, good versus evil, right versus wrong, Democrat versus Republican.  In the current world one group or principle is trying to annihilate the other. We are third force blind. The third force is there, but because it does “nothing” it is assumed not to exist.

The 3 Laws:

  1. The Yang / Male – Affirming Force often associated with the line.
  2. The Yin / Female – Receptive Force often associated with the circle.
  3. The Neutral / No Gender – Reconciling Force often associated with the zero-point.

The law of three is reflected in all major religions of the world. We are most familiar with The Holy Trinity in Christianity:

  • The Father (affirming)
  • The Son (neutral)
  • The Holy Spirit (receptive)

Or the Egyptian:

  • The Father (affirming)
  • The Mother (receptive)
  • The Child (neutral)

Pythagoras, 6th century BCE Greek Philosopher, Mystic and discoverer of Sacred Geometry and later Nikola Tesla uncovered The Law of Three and the sacred numbers of 3 – 6 – 9. Tesla said that these numbers (that he was obsessed with) would reveal the secrets of the universe.

The Middle Way in esoteric Buddhism is the Neutral Force that allows enlightenment to be revealed. A middle way is needed to reconcile the Democrats and Republicans for example to find a way forward by agents of change acting as all three forces with a special emphasis on the neutral or reconciling force.

When we think of the major elements of the atom mainly the positron, electron and the neutron – each has a charge; respectively (+), (-), and (0) or no charge. The neutron prevents / acts as a buffer to prevent the positively charged positron and the negatively charged electron from destroying one another. The neutron could be the particle that is connected to alternate and multiverse realities and at the very least is the balancing force between the (+) and (-) particles.

Even in writing affirmations towards manifestation we often forget about the law of three. We assume and don’t include all three brains of the human body. Everyone knows about the cognitive brain – the prefrontal cortex and so on. Many don’t know that our hearts have longer dendrites in them than in the prefrontal cortex and that the heart is the center or brain of emotion. The gut or chi in Eastern Medicine is the center or brain of the physical body.

Slightly tweaking affirmations for example to include each of the three persons includes a sense of wholeness arising from the law of three:

Writing each affirmation 3 times in each of the three persons:

  1. —“I” [first person] 3 times,
  2. “You” [second person] 3 times, and
  3. “She/He/They” [third person] three times

Each.

Taking the law of three to a completion process as use of the enneagram (9-picture) as a process or systems tool:

A Way Out of Chaos – Chakras and Making Money –– Part Two

Photo by C Technical on Pexels.com

Tipping Point

Whenever old systems cease to serve everyone chaos erupts. For many the natural proclivity is to lean on old familiar ways in order to be find a safe haven. The problem with old familiar ways is at least two-fold:

  • The old way doesn’t work in the chaos and the desire to go back to the old days of perceived stability. It only sees the positive aspect for select groups of the population and disregards the rest. It doesn’t include the negative aspects because they interfere with the future vision of “normalcy” based on a mythic past.
  • The old way was – in part – the foundation for the chaos happening now because it was built on faulty premises. The faulty premises became evident with exponential increases in planetary population; runaway growth, technology, and increasingly complexity. Underneath the premises of accelerated tech and capitalism is the basic inequities of the vertical hierarchy of the patriarchy.

The Point of Money

Money takes on different meanings depending on the kind of system that surrounds and permeates us. Nevertheless, money is a mediator for getting things done and acquiring stuff. The stuff can and does often include “more money”.

Money may have begun when nomads became citizens of the city state and bartering systems may have been strained. In pre-history there may have been civilizations that were far more advanced than anything we have today because people were connected beyond oral and written language so that no laws, no money existed. As a result of no laws, there was no government, no violence, no police, no courts, no prison, no victimization, no military, no hierarchy. Cooperation existed between peoples. Technology existed and was internalized within. The tech was not machinery as we now know it – it was intrinsic to a state of being.

The Nine Major Chakras, Money and the New Energy

In Part One about the 2nd chakra or Chi as a money / energy making chakra; this is something we will always have. In 1992 there was a major shift of energy in our nearest star or what we call the Sun. Two addition chakras came into being and soon became part of the traditional 7 major chakras of which many of us are familiar. While they will not be discussed here in depth, they are worth a mention:

The Seven and the Two New Chakras in bold:

  • Root Chakra – Connection to Earth and Tribe; near the base of the spine
  • 2nd Chakra – or Chi the center of our body’s “brain”; an inch or so below the naval
  • 3rd Chakra – Birth or Manifesting Chakra; an inch of so above the naval
  • 4th Chakra – Solar Plexus – place of the ego; at and below the Solar Plexus
  • 5th Chakra – Heart Chakra –“brain” of the Emotion Body with a foundation in Love; at the sternum
  • 6th Chakra – Will (Self and Divine Will) a few inches below the base of the throat
  • 7th Chakra – Communication / Assimilation – at the base of the throat – topic of the new way of making money and new ways of being
  • 8th Chakra – 3rd Eye – center of the thinking “brain” and visionary processes, at the Pineal Gland slightly above the bridge of the nose and above (centered between) the two eyebrows
  • 9th Chakra – Crown Chakra connection to Spirit at the top of the head

The Existential Crisis Calls on Us to Forge a New Way

The Climate Crisis is the number one crisis on the planet. Earth will succeed in her mission for balance and if it is without human participation, the majority of humans will be removed from Earth by death of the physical body (extinction events). A little over one million may survive. If humans participate effectively a new worldwide system of living will emerge based on cooperation at its root and more than one million humans may survive. Right now, it doesn’t look so good.

Of course, other threats are evident and are fused with Climate Crisis: democracy having already been replaced by oligarchy may fall into longer term dictatorship under the guise of “democracy”. The rich and powerful – white men – may prevail while the rest of us are enslaved. Enough doom – we already are well aware of this, aren’t we?

Looking towards solutions: Cooperation.

The Throat Chakra’s basic functions from physiological to daily human interactions are: as conduit for air and for food as a part of the assimilation system for physical survival; and it is also about giving and receiving with other humans, plants, animals, the elements, and so on, assimilation and communication with others.

There are so many of us dying to be heard that the zeitgeist via on-line platforms, by phone and in person are monologues instead of dialogs. So desperate are we to be heard, that we don’t make space to listen, comprehend and understand without some agenda at the ready. I see it in myself. I fail many times in conversations with friends to listen, comprehend and understand that I have set out on-purpose to change this in myself.

We have become very good at giving because giving is something we feel we’re in complete control of. Receiving – not so much. When we receive, some of us expect criticism to come in heaps with an eking out of positive praise. We often brush off compliments out of low self-esteem and/or fear of an assumption that the “other” is giving with barbs thrown in. It takes vulnerability to receive the good or bad – or somewhere in-between. Plus, some take vulnerability for weakness, when it takes courage to allow ourselves to feel open and vulnerable. Sure, we could get hurt. I’ve been hurt opening myself up, and then – I recover.

If everyone practiced the gift of giving and receiving with equal time we’d be going against these times of adversity and divisiveness that hold sway. Giving and receiving with one another is in the circle of cooperation and includes everyone.

Extending Cooperation from Humans at Home

When we think of home we usually think of the apartment, house, tent or homeless shelter we sleep in and we don’t consider that home is really Earth. This especially true of those that living in apartments and houses and those that can’t live inside due to economics and/or mental illness – drug addiction. Separation from Earth encourages class separation, elitism and so on. Instead of cooperating with one another we are at war.

Cooperation between groups, between nations will become abundantly and blatantly clear as Earth seeks balance. If we do not participate in the balance we will suffer and die. To think that governments must engage in cooperation is okay as long as we begin to participate in the process with ourselves, with friends, family, elders and both local and wider communities – from a grassroots movement, if you will.

An economy based on cooperation whose assumption may be: If I give to you; you may give to another in-kind so that we all support one another towards mutual cooperative aims and goals. Money, as we now know it can be incorporated into this circular system or it could be dispensed with almost entirely. The human species is too attached to money as a means to an end – as a competitive system to completely eliminate it at this time. Maybe in short as 300 years this could happen.

How to Start

I’m sure we all have plenty of ideas how to start and we may have already begun. At least some of us have begun and are experimenting with inclusive systems of economic growth for all humans (Kiva’s micro loans in one such experiment). The impetus of this kind of community-oriented yin-based system is the activation of the throat chakra co-creating world-wide cooperation. And the binary or yang system is entrenched in either resisting the throat-chakra or directly fighting against it through the old ways of binary hierarchies of capitalism and the vertical patriarchy or power-over dynamics. Why? It is necessary for these yin-yang systems to oppose each other until the yin grows and includes the yang. In other words, it will take a great number of humans cooperating to be big enough to include the yang so both the yin and yang may transform into the new way. In playing sports, especially one-on-one competition is: the best competition is against oneself for achieving excellence. This example may be one way of combining the best of the yang with the yin to create a more cooperative world.

One way to take the giving and receiving process to a deeper level is – first with ourselves. Pick a time during the day for a practice of being kind to yourself. Giving soothing and tender loving kindness to an aspect of yourself that is hurt, fearful or angry about something. This is not meant to eliminate the hurt, the fear, the anger or other negative emotions but only to offer soothing.  It is giving support. Become the giver in yourself. Remember you are not forcing something on an aspect of yourself. We’ve often told ourselves that we have to bear some burden, or take criticism because we were raised that way. The giver in us is making an offering to an aspect of ourselves to receive or not. This can reveal where you are in the deservedness circle for example. Maybe you need some work there or maybe not. If we, as the giver, are giving make sure there is no negativity in your giving, try suspending or putting your judgement and criticism of your-self aside for the moment. Then as need arises become the receiver and work on allowing yourself to feel vulnerable to the gift you may be accepting. This is one way of helping to heal the wounded parts and engage in balance dynamics. As you begin to accept the gift of a compliment for example – feel this compliment or soothing in your heart or in the whole of your being. Look at – metaphorically speaking – the giver in yourself and from your heart say thank-you.

Once this becomes a part of your self-healing repertoire then you may wish to add another dynamic to the process. And that is, of course offering the process of giving and receiving to friend, loved one or family member to begin…
