It is the end of Summer and we are getting ready for Fall.  I love it when the weather starts to cool down – still waiting here in Maryland but I trust it is coming!

The Sun has moved into the sign of Virgo so we are focusing away from the materialistic and toward the beauty and elegance of Life.  It is a time to bring heart and soul together in your life and to rise above material concerns.

Hold onto your hats because Mercury is going Retrograde on Tuesday, August 30th at 9:03 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)!  For the next three weeks Mercury will be making us re-view, re-plan, re-evaluate.  Drivers may be distracted.  Communications may be confused.  Take your time – there’s nothing to worry about if you re-read everything before you sign or hit ‘Send.’  Although some people panic about the Mercury Retrograde periods, others find them extremely creative because they go inside and find the new ideas that they are usually too busy to discover.  Make this time a good Mercury Retrograde period for yourself!

This week we have a Solar Eclipse on September 1 at 5:03 am EDT.  The Eclipse won’t be visible in the US but the effects will be felt worldwide.  Notice what was important to you 19 years ago, on September 1, 1997, when there was another eclipse close to the place that this one is occurring.  What do you need to change or evaluate in your life now?

With this Eclipse, when the Moon temporarily blocks some of the Sun’s light from reaching Earth, we get some Saturn and Neptune influence to bring up compassion and unity consciousness for us to tap into.  According to The Mountain Astrologer magazine, “…in order to manifest our dreams, we have to be willing to release all remnants of guilt and blame, denial and dogmatism, martyrdom and victimhood.”  Are you ready?  This is important clearing work so that you can move forward into living your richest life.

To support you in the coming months and all the endings plus beginnings, I have created several opportunities for you to do some of this important work with me.

On Tuesday, August 30, at 7:00 pm EDT I will be teaching with The Divine Feminine and the topic is ‘How Do You Live Your Purpose with the Challenges of Today?’  You will want to join us to not only hear the main message but to ask your individual questions! There are two ways to join us live on Tuesday – in person in Severna Park, Maryland or by phone.  And don’t worry if you can’t be live with us – the teaching will be recorded and anyone who registers will receive  the recording.  You can also email questions to me (rosemarybredeson@gmail.com) and get the answers on the recording.  Here is the link to save your spot: Register Here

I am also offering a workshop on Saturday, September 17, 10:00-1:00 –Meta*Physical Steps to Physical Success in the Annapolis area.  Learn three keys to Live Your Richest Life™ and start applying them right away.  You will come away with tools that will help you create your Vision and to make it a reality.  Stay tuned for the details!

Save the date: November 5 – Abundance, Prosperity and Finances…it’s not justabout the money!  An all-day workshop to explore the real ‘Secret’ to getting what you want in life!  We’ll talk about the ways to manifest what you desire and to manage what you manifest.  Details coming soon.  10:00 – 4:00 on Saturday, November 5 in the Annapolis area.

And I am available for private mentoring or a one-time session to help you to get the guidance you need at the moment.  Email me at rosemarybredeson@gmail.com for more information about working with me.

Have a great week! 

Many blessings and much love!

ROSEMARY’S NEWS FOR THE FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN

July 2, 2015 Leave a comment

Happy Full Moon in Capricorn!

Today’s Hubble picture is a recent one of the Pillars of Creation. Stars are being born deep inside the pillars, a small part of the Eagle Nebula, a vast star-forming region 6,500 light-years from Earth.

Rhythmspillars of creation

Full moon rising,
Climbing as a goat
Up the mountain of the sky
Riding high, beaming Sunrays
Back to Earth, light for the Dark Way.

Half-year passing,
Fading as a flower.
Ripening fruit-time in full force
Nourishing Earth energy pushing
Life to feed the seed to feed life.

Old man rejoicing,
Vigorous as a stoat,
Living the dream, dreaming life
Back into fading years
Shedding no tears, full force rising!

This Full Moon at 09 degrees Capricorn, opposite the Sun at 09 degrees Cancer, invites us to look at what we expressed as our desires at the last New Moon (June 16) and release any remaining blocks to manifesting those desires. The Full Moon happened at 10:22 pm Eastern Daylight Time on Wednesday, July 1, and ushered in the time to determine what to let go of as we get down to work for the next two weeks.

How are you taking care of yourself? (Cancer) What are your tasks, your REAL work, your objectives? (Capricorn) Do your assessment as you also pay attention to the fact that everyone around you will be experiencing the effects of this Full Moon, knowing about it or ignorant of it. Drive defensively!

The Sun is dancing with several other planets in the period between this Full Moon and the next New Moon on July 15, making early July a good time to look for the areas where big change is needed in your life. Are you ready?

If you are wondering how this Summer is asking you to change, then schedule a reading where we can explore your next step. Send me an email at rosemary@TheScientificMystic.com for details. Isn’t it time that you got everything out of the way of your Living Your Richest Life?

And look up at the sky! The Moon, Venus and Jupiter have been playing nicely together. It is a wonder of lights to behold!

Happy New Moon in Taurus! Celebrate with Haiku

May 19, 2015 Leave a comment

For this New Moon I’ve written three Haiku. The bull does like his beauty, both light and dark!

Moon Death

Mourn the losses deep;
Moon death carries them down.
But wait; look west. Birth!

Moon Drift

Celebrate the gain.
Moon drift carries her beyond.
Light breaks to the west!

Moon Dark

Rest through the night deep;
No struggle, no pain – Moon dark.
Light returns – renewed!

And here, from Rosemary, is all the New Moon information for the next couple of weeks, as we move into this waxing moon phase:

“When the Moon is dark it is inviting you to shine your light into the world. Be the beacon of light that is needed to show the way. The light is within you.”

 The Sun and Moon joined up in Taurus for the New Moon at 12:13 am Eastern Time on Monday, May 18, 2015 so we get a double dose of that healthy, earthy beauty-loving Taurus energy. When these two luminaries come together we get the personal energy of the Sun, representing who we are, magnified by the energy of how we feel – the Moon.

Are you ready to claim who you really are? To claim how you really feel? This is a great time to shed the shells! Be YOU, fully YOU, just the way you are, which is PERFECT!

And if there is anything that you are looking to bring into your life, send out your request now, during the energy of the New Moon. Stay in gratitude even when you don’t control the timetable. Let your gratitude grow while the Moon grows from dark to Full in the sky.

This is also the start of a 3-week period where Planet Mercury goes retrograde – it appears to travel backward in the sky. Mercury represents communications so be careful. Check those emails and tweets before you send them. Read and re-read contracts or, better yet, wait until after June 11 to sign them. Others will be distracted, too, so pay close attention to your driving and drive defensively.

This, too, shall pass. Creative people often find Mercury Retrograde periods to be inspiring so take some time to go inside and explore.

I am so excited about the difference that essential oils are making in our lives! I recently twisted my knee and went right to the oils for relief. Swelling was minimal and I attribute that to swift and frequent application of the oils. We’re still filling the diffuser with a combination that makes dealing with allergies a thing of the past, even though the pollen is so heavy that we’re getting the car washed all the time. If you are living a more natural life then essential oils are the way to go. We’ve replaced our medicine chest with oils and I believe the plants are where our healing energies can be found. Would you like to join me online to learn more about what we’re doing with essential oils? Send me an email and I’ll let you know:rosemary@TheScientific Mystic.com

The Hubble picture today celebrates the 25th anniversary of this magnificent “light gatherer.” Here’s more info:

APRIL 23, 2015: NASA and ESA are celebrating the Hubble Space Telescope’s silver anniversary of 25 years in space by unveiling some of nature’s own fireworks — a giant cluster of about 3,000 stars called Westerlund 2. The cluster resides inside a vibrant stellar breeding ground known as Gum 29, located 20,000 light-years away in the constellation Carina. The comparatively young, 2-million-year-old star cluster contains some of our galaxy’s hottest, brightest, and most massive stars. The largest stars are unleashing a torrent of ultraviolet light and hurricane-force winds that etch away the enveloping hydrogen gas cloud. This creates a fantasy celestial landscape of pillars, ridges, and valleys.

ROSEMARY’S EXPLORATION: Know Thyself – Tools for Self-Knowledge

August 20, 2014 1 comment

How well do you know who you are, really?

Of course, you know your name, your physical history, where you were born, etc. You might know your Sun sign to look up a horoscope in the newspaper. You probably know your parents’ names and your grandparents’ names. But who are you, really?

Do you know your thinking style? Do you know where your attention goes when you are presented with a situation or event? Do you know your Life Purpose, your Life School and your Life Lesson or Blind Spot? Have you examined your limiting beliefs? How about those negative self-talk thoughts you carry around with you? Are you clear about your values and your priorities?

I could continue the list but it is too long. There are so many facets to a human being, so many aspects to the personality, that we often think we are simpler beings than we really are.

And what is true for you is true for everyone around you.

For example, you have a certain learning style. Most folks are visual learners. They process information by seeing it. Have you noticed that you remember something better if you see it written than if you just hear it? That’s because your preferred learning style is visual.

Some people are auditory learners. They need to hear material so that they can better learn and remember. For these folks, just seeing the written word isn’t good enough – they need to also hear it spoken or to speak it aloud themselves.

Now if you are a visual learner, you use phrases that reflect this, like ‘Do you see what I am saying?’ or, ‘How does this look to you?’ If, however, you are an auditory learner, you resonate better with language that reflects hearing, like ‘Did you hear about this?’ or ‘How does this sound to you?’

Can you see/hear how this difference can impact communication between two people?

This is only one example of how important it is to know something about yourself.

What about other tools for self-knowledge that give you more detailed information about your tendencies and inherent energies? Astrology. Numerology. Enneagram. Myers-Briggs. DISC. Scientific Hand Analysis. Chinese 5-elements. Your Chinese astrology star number. There is a long list of ways that you can understand yourself more deeply.

Have you explored tools to help you understand where you are coming from? What about where others are coming from? Do you value the differences in how people approach learning, or life, or do you expect everyone to see things as you see them? To listen and to hear exactly what you hear? To feel the way you feel?

Remember that:

All Love Flows from Self-Love.

To love another you must first love yourself. Learn more about yourself and love it all. There is nothing better about one Enneagram type over another, but the more you understand about your tendencies the more conscious you can be about choosing how to respond to stimulus as it is presented to you. One Astrological chart is as good as another but they can carry very different lessons for the person to learn.

I can often shift a person from feeling conflicted to being more peaceful simply by pointing out how differing human beings can look at the same scene and describe differing points of view. This is most beneficial if you know your own point of view first.

Explore tools for self-knowledge and get to know yourself better. It can change your life!

MONDAY’S POEM: Inner Life

July 21, 2014 Leave a comment

We are approaching the time of the Sun in Leo! If you are a Leo, as Rosemary and I are (same birthday: August 2) then you understand the exclamation point! If you aren’t a Leo find a Leo friend!

The Sun moves into Leo tomorrow, July 22; one characteristic of Leos is they know things like this, even if they aren’t into Astrology! (They also use a lot of exclamation points!) And, if you share the same birthday with someone close, like a spouse, then you tend to celebrate birthdays for much longer than a day!

The only point of all of this (besides announcing my birthday) is that I wrote this poem when the Sun was in Leo in 2011. Enjoy! And don’t be surprised to see more Leonine poems here over the next few weeks!

Inner Life

There is a secret to this
Inner Life:
It is reflected in the outer.

To find peace in the world
Still the heart,
Still the mind.

To find abundance in the world
Enrich the Inner,
Fill the heart
With Love.

To find wisdom in the world
Still the mind,
Fill the mind
From Source.

To find joy in the world
Reach inward
Fill the Heart-Mind
With radiance!

MONDAY’S POEM: Signs and Wonders

April 28, 2014 Leave a comment

It has been quite a month with significant astrological and astronomical events occurring in the heavens. And we have been traveling on the west coast during these times of change and rebirth. Tonight, 11:14 PM Pacific time, we have one more April event to push us farther along this path to awakening: a solar eclipse.

In recognition of these events I wrote:

Signs and Wonders

Eclipsed Moon, Earth’s shadow hiding
Features, drawing blood, going deep.
Long shadows cast along a path
Of discovery and regeneration.

Grand Cross, Cardinal Signs, upheaval,
Rebellion, war god soothed in the
House of Love. God of Hades opposing
Expansion and stabilizing influences.

Eclipsed Sun, Moon’s shadow hiding
Light, blotting out life’s blood.
Dark shadows reaching far in this time
Of reformation and transformation.

New Moon/Solar Eclipse and more…

May 10, 2013 Leave a comment

I was all set to cast my I Ching Gua for the New Moon/Solar Eclipse and more…. But this isn’t going to happen until later. These Heavenly events are really hitting me hard. I have been alternating shaking with sweating for a couple of days now. Could this be the massive New Moon/Eclipse energy?

So, I am taking the easy way out and using valuable information from dear friends and expert astrologers:

NEW MOON and SOLAR ECLIPSE IN TAURUS

PRACTICE “VARJA PRIDE” (the essential dignity of being alive!)

  

WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF A HUGE INFLUX OF LIGHT FROM

THREE ECLIPSES IN ONE MONTH! 

Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on April 25

TAURUS SOLAR ECLIPSE ON MAY 9

Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse on May 24

This informs us that magnificent waves of light are heading our way.  These are believed to be the first waves of energy coming from the Great Shift of December 21, 2012…….you can say we have shifted in to

The Age of Light. 

Are you open to receiving that Light?

Are you willing to allow this Sacred Light to heal the Taurus shadow of low self-worth?
 

 I recently learned that while low self-esteem is practically epidemic in the USA, it is effectively unknown in some other cultures.  The concept even had to be explained to the Dalai Lama because a sense of low self-worth does not even exist in his culture!  This Solar Eclipse in Taurus challenges us to have a deep re-evaluation and recognition of our inherent self-worth.

During this Taurus Solar Eclipse/New Moon where we are challenged to release any sense of low self-esteem , it seems valuable to understand and accept the concept of VAJRA PRIDE. 

Here is a profound quote from Spiritual teacher Svasti that can be so helpful during this eclipse which supports us in releasing old patterns and imprinting a life enhancing new pattern:

“I honour every person out there in the world coming to terms with their wild and wacky monkey mind, the mind that wounds our Selves as well as others. The mind that makes us believe we are not enough, we are not okay and we are not who or what we should be. I also honour those that haven’t had that battle yet because at some point in our lives, it seems to me that we all come face to face with our inner demons. I honour everyone who lives and breathes and I sincerely hope that one day we all  find for ourselves what is called  “Vajra pride or the essential dignity of being alive”

Here is yet another quote from Lama Gursam on this Taurus subject.

Vajra pride is seeing yourself as inseparable from the deity. The two most important things in tantric practice are vajra pride and pure vision, seeing yourself and others as deities.

Taurus energy has a stubborn streak.  While we all know the negative side of stubbornness, why not harness a more positive aspect of this Taurus stubbornness and use it as “stick-to-it tiveness”…dliligently practicing Vajra Pride, our essential dignity and value; acknowledging and owning ourselves and others as deities.  Our loving cosmos is abundantly supporting us as part of our Hero’s Journey with these 3 transforming eclipses.

Energies of the New Moon in Taurus:

  • Self-Worth
  • Money
  • Loves Nature, the Earth
  • Serenity
  • Sensuousness
  • Creates Security
  • Aversion to Drama
  • Practicality
  • Pleasure from the senses

Archetypes: Diva of the Earth:

                   Goddess of Pleasure

Shadow Energies:

  • Stubbornness used to limit us
  • Fearful of Change
  • Need for Security stifles growth
  • Laziness
  • Overvalues Material Security

Deep material, Gloria; thank you!

And here is a snippet from friend and esoteric astrologer, Chris Larget:

This moment in history highlights communication between dimensions (Neptune back in Pisces after roughly 165 years).  This means more contact with persons and animals who now reside in another dimension.

How do you feel with all this energy banging around? I hope you stay well and grounded!

ARIES and the I Ching for the “Moonth”

April 12, 2013 Leave a comment

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my post yesterday. Is there a conflict between all the energies in the House of Aries and the I Ching which seems to be urging caution?  I’ve received more astrological guidance and I’ll be sharing some of my musings on this conjunction of these energies.

First a “word” from dear friend, teacher and intuitive astrologer, Chris Largent, about Aries:

1.  Spring is expansive, so it’s a great time to get out and celebrate.  The winter brought with it unconscious and other-dimensional processes, and we worked hard – usually without knowing it.  So, we need to rest and have fun.  The symbols now are particularly good for getting out in nature – any kind of nature.

2.  The ‘Big Transition’ aspect is back and will be with us through early 2014.  Since this symbolizes a shake-up in collective consciousness, we may feel an urgency or an awakening relative to our destinies as culture changers.

In fact, a combination of present aspects symbolizes the Big Kid in us going out to play, the Contemplative Adult reflecting quietly, AND the Serious Change-Agent breaking free of oppressive programming to help liberate the world.  This gives all of us plenty to do.

3.  As a result, we may also experience a tension between the old world and the new one, out there where “the wind blows” and “wild things run.”  We may feel an inner resistance to leaving the “medieval fort” of conventionality.  And we may even find apparently good reasons for clinging to the old when new ways of being confront us – which they do constantly now.

So, it’s a time to be alert to our resistance and our destinies – along with resting and playing.

And here is more from Gloria Hesseloff, especially about that “medieval fort” image Chris conjures:

“The New Moon in Aries focuses on the energies of the Divine Masculine, which is very different from the patriarchy. … Energetically, this feels like a fortuitous time to invoke the Sacred Masculine to join forces with the Divine Feminine in putting a powerful hold on the old, less evolved, dominating patriarchy that has abused Mars/Aries energy with war and violence.

  • Aries is ruled by Mars. Evolved Mars is more a protector than an aggressor.
  • Mars is considered the Warrior.
  • Let us be Warriors for Higher Consciousness…Peaceful Warriors, Spiritual Warriors, Wise Warriors, Spirit in Action.
  • We can generate an “energy field” that contains the heart & soul of the Warrior.
  • This can be sent to areas around the world to promote peace.
  • This field can be applied to our daily lives where we courageously go after what we desire. This is the time to be the hero or heroine in your own life!”

And then there is the I Ching energy of “encounter” (especially with young, energetic women) and “retreat.” Note that for both the initial and approached Gua the yin lines are in an advancing position moving upward toward the yang dominated top of the Gua. My feeling is there is a lot of feminine energy in this Aries configuration; in fact Venus too is in the “warrior house” clearly influencing, not necessarily softening, the energy! Here’s what I wrote about all this in my pages:

Encounter is with the Goddess! She is referred to as a “strong maiden” in King Wen’s Decision. Who is she? This is about feminine energy in this Aries House. Venus is in Aries along with Mars. She is strengthened by Mars’ presence, closeness (a bit over 2 degrees separation at this point). In fact it may be this Mars energy that is in “retreat” from the strong feminine. Balance remains a key word for this time within Equinox energy. Balance the masculine and feminine energy within and all around. And, yes, there may need to be a retreat before the strength of the feminine in order to achieve this balance. Gloria referred to the Divine Masculine as the powerful, generative King Archetype. Perhaps his retreat is into his feminine, creative power.

“There is strength in retreat. I visualize a time of gathering strength, building potential for what is coming (the “Big Transition”). I visualize the final stages of the worm within her chrysalis, a deep retreat into this desiccated state just before the emergence of the true creature in her brilliance and beauty. The Goddess emerges from her entombment to dry her wings in the light and complete the cycle of life, from cellular egg to crawling worm to gossamer flight.

“It is time to submerge into the energy of this powerful Aries time to gather strength for the emergence. The Goddess will empower this emergence. But there remains the cautionary note of Gou! This is powerful feminine energy to encounter. Treat it with utmost respect. Bow before the power or risk its loss and backlash!”

I think I have resolved any perceived conflict in my mind. How are you dealing with all this power both “out there” and within?

What’s New with You? — Richard’s Commentary, and the I Ching for the New Moon

April 11, 2013 Leave a comment

One of the thoughts that caught my attention in Rosemary’s “Exploration” yesterday is:

“And what new stimulus is there in your environment to keep you growing? Or are you content with the status quo and resisting forward motion?”

We live in a totally dynamic Universe supplying our need for new stimulus constantly. All we have to do is pay attention to what’s going on and assess and respond to the stimulation around us. For example we are just now in New Moon energy (as of April 10, 2013 at 5:36 AM EDT) and we are just now in a new astrological year with the Sun in Aries. And Aries, the House of newness and action, is really full of stimulating planets right now. This is from our friend Gloria Hesseloff:

“The New Moon in ARIES holds special promise because 5 other celestial bodies are also in Aries! It can rock your world!

“(Note: Seriously, you may have noticed this unique Aries time is impacting many of us or our friends and family, especially those who have prominently in their charts Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer. This energy can feel aggressive, angry, domineering, etc…)”

There is plenty here to stimulate growth, change, expansion, evolution. With all this energy in Aries, Spring time in the North, New Moon, it will be difficult to remain content with the status quo! It is a great time now to capture this energy to assist us in moving forward! Gloria goes on to say now is the:

“Time to reflect on:

  • What am I ready to bring to life at this time?
  • Where do I need to take a stand?
  • How can I take advantage of the unlimited possibilities available to me?
  • How can I make changes that are real, not just superficial?
  • The Universal energies are supporting courageous action with this New Moon.”

Gou-EncounteringIt is with all this Aries energy supporting me that I cast my I Ching Gua for this New Moon to take a look at how the month may play out and how I can best interact with these energies. And I received a surprising pair of Gua. Here is the first:

Note that the second line is a changing line (a nine) which yields a new “Approached Gua”. The initial Gua tells us something about the current energies, the status quo if you will, and the approached Gua tells us something about the changes we can expect. Since I cast these Gua for the month (the nextDun-Retreat moon cycle, or “moonth”) we start out with the energy of Gou (Encountering) and end with Dun (Retreat). Here’s the Approached Gua:

And here is my interpretation:

Gou is about encounters with other people. The I Ching expresses caution here, to be careful of these encounters, to not take people as they first appear; not to distrust, necessarily but to reserve judgment. And it is better to meet people in person rather than at a distance (indirectly, e.g. via email!).

The Approached Gua, Dun, indicates a retreat after this or these encounters. This is a positive retreat, one to gather strength for another time (next month perhaps).

Both of these Gua offer caution about “little people” and to avoid inappropriate or unproductive encounters with them. The wise retreat to gather strength and reinforcements. This tells me to not get bogged down with small stuff. Advance by retreating!

And note that if you are following my I Ching readings each moonth that my last Gua was Heng/Long Lasting, which is the Gua immediately preceding Dun. So, after remaining steadfast during the previous month it may now be time to step back to assess and regroup!

With the I Ching timing is everything. I also note that while both of these Gua this moonth urge caution, Gou corresponds to the 5th month (June) and Dun corresponds to the 6th month (July). These will be very productive months for the year. Now is a time to be watchful of encounters and to retreat into planning to prepare for the summer months.

Considering all this energy in Aries, these are very cautionary Gua to received. I will be storing up this energy, putting it into plans and getting ready for a big summer!

Do you use any divination tools in your life? They can help you with the ever-present influences from the environment, help with interpretation and with guidance on using the energies for forward motion, but only when it is advisable!

The Door to All Beginnings

March 29, 2013 Leave a comment

Yesterday I posted my commentary on Rosemary’s post about surprises. We seem to be in the midst of many surprises as we move well into 2013. Whether the subject is politics, global affairs, earth changes, violence, economics, and the rest of the lengthy list, every area of life seems to be popping with surprises.

And then there is the astrology and my friend, Chris Largent’s musing about the dissolution of “consensus reality”!

Holding all of this in mind I turn easily to the Master, Lao-Tzu, and the First Chapter of the Taoteching:

The way that becomes a way
is not the Immortal Way
the name that becomes a name
is not the Immortal Name
the maiden of Heaven and Earth has no name
the mother of all things has a name
thus in innocence we see the beginning
in passion we see the end
two different names
for one and the same
the one we call dark
the dark beyond dark
the door to all beginnings

from the translation by Red Pine

Every surprise is a door to a new beginning. Every shift is an opportunity for transformation. And this is the story we are now writing for ourselves. This is the reformation of reality we are all forming from the dissolution of the old consensus reality.

It’s an open door; a dark door. There are unknowns and unknowables on the other side. It will take courage to walk through into that darkness. And many of us are ready and willing. We are the light-workers. We carry our inner light through and into that dark, unknowable territory to create the new reality. This is our mission; this is our time.

Where is this door? It’s on the inside. The opening is right in the center of our hearts. Each and every light-worker knows this; has known this from the beginning. And we all have a sense that we are moving into this time to step through the opening door.

Imagine if our new reality is formed by the consensus of light-workers! Can you see the vision; can you hear the music; can you smell the flowers; can you taste the delights; can you feel the soft breeze of the freshest of air sooth your delicate body; can you imagine such a new reality? This is the Tao. It is there, just beyond the door. Yes, it’s “dark beyond dark” through that door. But it’s the door to “all beginnings”! Let’s walk through it, hand-in-hand with courage and a true vision for the New Reality!
