Shiva uses his sword to penetrate reality, and I like the merge with the Luke Skywalker. It brings it (occidentally) home. "Saber" in Spanish is "to know". Light needs dark matter to discover itself. In the interplay of shadows and light it´s not what you look at, but what you see.
When I lived in Argentina we would watch the news daily. It was in 2001, the height of the Cavallo financial crisis. The news got pers...

The Light is Coming!!!!
So women and other feminine spirits of my heart, I have had an idea this morning, which I do not think is really my idea at all, but it just came into me. How about this:
Lets say, for sake of argument, that we are going into the age of Aquarius.
Lets say, in the global scale that it is around now 2012.
Lets just say that.
Movements of the spheres.
Now, the age of Aquarius, for all the research that I´ve done, and the intuition that flows in, is an age of femininity. Not of masculinity as we have all been living. Not of hierarchies and status. As the present masculinity reaches its limit and finds itself meaningless, absurd, it sacrifices itself into the nothingness and we have a re-birth of femininity, giving everything a new meaning.
Lets say that up to now, in the age of Pisces, that we have been giving all authority to external figures: hospitals and doctors, lawyers and courts, teachers and schools, universities and pubs, and other such closely related institutions. We ask the priest in his church what to believe, the doctor how to relate to our bodies, the school how and what we want to concentrate on.
Lets say that now, we harvest the masculine information and we give thanks for it, and we begin a more feminine way of living: where we exist in the world, dealing with the present, and taking the responsibility of our existence to heart. Where we begin to decide for ourselves, instead of relying on external authorities, where we begin to have self love and self confidence and self esteem and self respect and self health…where we integrate and see differences and enjoy living.
Can you imagine that. All day, every day?
And why not?
Really? Why not?
And so, you divine women and men who are in contact with your femininity (we all have our feminine (and masculine) sides), ohh loved ones let us rejoice with our lives in the complexity of our times; because suddenly life IS more complicated, we haven´t got a conveyor belt to stay on any longer, things are changing and with our feminine intuition we are adapting. Only one generation ago women didn´t choose to have children, they just did. My mother didn´t spend 5 neurotic years swinging, in her mid thirties, to “Yes! I want a child” to “No! I don´t want a child”. By then she was in the car ferrying me and my bro to swim class, music class and to brownies (where my bro wanted to go) and to the scouts (where I wanted to go).
We seem to have so much newness to contend with as we wonder why the external makes our lives impossible (really who makes our external if not us?). Full respect for those who keep un-knotting themselves, living as they see fit for the here and now, rather than the was and would have been correct. For it is not easy to decide for oneself, it is not easy to think “What do I want?”, it is not easy to create a life with one´s own creation. And yet we are. We are not just doing because someone said we should, as we move around and do this and that and generally fend off the word “failure”. For we all know we are failures in the past model. We all know that if we had got down to it, we could have been a useful and influential figure of external authority by now, so that we could have more money and power and respect from traditional others, because god-damn we are all so eduated and intellectual and able. We are sitting on a gold mine.
We have chosen to live A DIFFERENT WAY. Like artists, who create, we create our own world and as Thomas A Edison said "If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves." Just amongst only my beautiful feminine friends we act in front of school children getting dressed up as little red ridinghood and love it, we make documentaries even though it is difficult to get them edited, we start up fish spas, we find new ways to heal our bodies and our wounds, or create keyboards that control two computers, or create a wonderful new dish to eat, or wear pixie ears (it was pixie wasn´t it? (I know this is a sensitive subject)) on dates to relax the guy, or wear goggles when cutting up onions.

We are being brave enough to try and be ourselves. Bravo! It is by our example that we help the collective consciousness into the next era, where we take the responsibility for our own lives and our emotional reactions to life.
And, finally, thank you to the divas, the women who have gone before us, who have changed the face of the collective, the feminists RIP and now the new women who have had the courage to keep their hearts open even in the uproar of the past pattern crashing, to love, to Love, to allow Love and to allow oneself to be loved, Loved.
Wow, we are doing great girls, women, beautiful men in contact with your feminine being. We are doing simply great: Enjoying ourselves, allowing ourselves to be graced with joy and love and creativity, and simply being more authentic.
Pat on the back. Big sea seal noise of approval. Huarhuarhuar!!
Keep going! Keep risking being yourself, setting up courses that you want to share, allowing children and others to express themselves as they are, not how others think they should be, thinking out of the box, falling in love with the light in someone´s eye regardless of age or race or sex, writing books and poems and acting and singing and dancing and making music and decorating life with the finery of our own expression, allowing differences and beauty to flood like sunlight into our lives.
And now I´m going to go for a walk to look around and feel it. Ohh what a glorious day!
