“Mind can neither recognize nor create beauty. … Many people are so imprisoned in their minds that the beauty of nature does not really exist for them.” ~ Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now. Here's a short musing from notes... Continue Reading →
I wrote recently about Mars coming out of its retrograde, cave time, and vision quest (June 29). With Mars in the archetypal Scorpion-or-Phoenix zone just the now, additional key shadow possibilities include the hoarding-witholding typical of the Taurus-Scorpio shadow. With... Continue Reading →
This seems a very fine time for anchoring ourselves in the sovereign “ground of All Being” and rejuvenating our discerning Spiritual Warrior juju.
I’ll be sharing a few musings on just that “ripe timing” in a day or two (maybe even today), since the Virgo-Pisces archetypal energies are getting activated in a big way moving forward.
In the meanwhile, I’m happy to share this blog post from blog-sister Laura Bruno, since it speaks to this Spiritual (Shambhala) Warrior archetype that many of us are ‘here to be’.
Check this out, and read on for more:
“Budo (way of the warrior) is not a means of felling the opponent by force or by lethal weapons. Neither is it intended to lead the world to destruction by arms and other illegitimate means.

That’s what I’m talking about (whatever the spiritual tradition from which you gain Wisdom and inspiration) — and it’s the energetic we’ll have plenty of cosmic and Earth help with as we move forward, starting now. Stay tuned …
Big Love and more soon,
Thanks, Bill! This video arrived so very synchronously, just seconds after I hung up the phone from a “Healing Skills Reclamation” Session discussing the spiritual path of the Warrior. I had just described this very dynamic of becoming so strong that you bypass the “need” for violence.
This video gives a passionate description of the differences between a Warrior and a soldier, as well as why our world needs a return of the Warrior. Lately, I’ve felt led to read both “The Upanishads” and “The Poetic Edda,” and both traditions share an appreciation for the role of true Warriors. It’s not about bashing heads or bombing civilians into oblivion. Reclaiming the values, courage and skills of the Warrior has deep implications for spiritual development, human sovereignty and, indeed, the fate of our world. This is 22 minutes well worth the listen:
