Leonard Cohen – A Time To Be Free

cohen

“We are so lightly here. It is in love that we are made. In love we disappear.”
― Leonard Cohen

I believe Leonard Cohen was a man who embraced the shadows of suffering and in doing so became a role model for humanity. With courage and a deep acceptance of the suffering of life he always remained humane and respectful rather than dragged down. He would sing out on religion, politics, love and sex often in a prayerful manner yet sometimes with a bit self-deprecating humor. There could be no better symbol for his journey than the life of Christ for in the darkest hours he believed there was a crack in everything and that is how the light would get in. Often moving to where the light was most dark and where he was most helpless he would explore and develop his consciousness within and when he would kneel down on his knees to sing, veneration and reverence exuded forth to open our hearts melted with compassion.

Cohen with his life of simplicity had a mind uncluttered and spaciousness so that he could think clearly with insight and clear language. His words were masterpieces that conveyed an alchemical flavour of clarity, simplicity, beauty and vibration.

“I don’t want to be a star, merely dying”, he once said and indeed he wasn’t for he glowed with magnetized life force having an aura that had the power to influence us all. Perhaps upon his death he might have burst into his ultimate flowering florescence surrounded by magic, where the crack opened for the light to come in and his clear mind finally gave up control.

TRUMP & PUTIN – Politics makes strange bedfellows

donald -putin
“Words – so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.” Nathaniel Hawthorne

TRUMP
Trump holds the gift of idealism and farsightedness for he can look into the future and envisage potential which is not immediately apparent in the present. Here rests the possibility of a man who might deliver diplomacy and peace on earth IF he could only transform his shadow of conflict. This type of turbulence that surrounds him uses defiant speech with a combative mood – as if there was the possibility of a hostile takeover. A low frequency such as this shadow is addicted to conflict and at a social level it is programmed to distrust other racial groups believing it has to defend boundaries and borders from danger. When one is ruled by this conflict there are upsetting emotions and no peace or harmony can be found within or without. A shadow such as this cannot take responsibility for their upsetting emotions so they lash out in tactless ways through steams of anger, then exit by storming off. It is difficult to get close to this kind of person unless the childish behavior is adjusted through the opening the heart and the dropping the defenses, along with a bit of give and take with right timing. On the other hand, Trump holds the gift of discrimination and will know inherently what choices are good for America. He wants to stabilize the country and make it great. He says, “This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.”

PUTIN
Putin’s aspiration is to work with others well, since he knows real growth and expansion lies in mutually cooperative models between different groups or organizations, he holds the gift of teamwork and can easily read people. He feels it essential to meet face to face when doing business. Operating from his gift of expansion he transcends personal opinions as he attempts to understand what is really going on. Lastly if ruling from the shadow of control and fear he will never inspire true loyalty, but when he is a conduit of the will of his followers he transforms into an authority, which is based on kinship rather than kingship. This can be an incredible resourceful man who comes up with all manner of solutions to all manner of challenges filled as he is with wisdom.

TOGETHER
Communication between these two leaders might follow into either positive or negative. They might display a tendency towards limitation, narrowing, inhibiting or simply being too fixed and rigid or they might demonstrate a great deal of form and discipline as they consider every possibility carefully, thoroughly, and methodically. In the early stages of their meetings will they be irritated by each others friendly kidding and goading, or will they realize it is harmless. As they become more familiar with each other they will find that they seem to get many more things done than they could possibly have done separately. Touchiness might be raised from both parties and even the possibility of explosiveness as both love a challenge and are not afraid of confrontations.

Expect this newly formed relationship to have very deep, powerful and long-lasting effects on both individuals as they go through important internal changes and transformations. They affect will no doubt spread to have a very powerful effect on us.

Troubled Waters

The Perfect Lovers - Bridge Over Troubled Waters

He calls out over the troubled, rumbling waters….
Love is precarious and dangerous
Some will chase it their entire lives
Yet others flee from it, frightened half to death

As my gigantic helium balloon floats above my head
I fill it with my dreams
Full of awe, tension, and hope
Imagined ideas and intimate desires
Which I believe led me into troubled waters

Ahhh to reach the bridge
For skill and understanding
To maneuver communications to heal
But so many things are left unsaid …

For example, to be directive and specific
Is easier said than done
Especially when the source point needs to be cleared
So that I might no longer be controlled
Through my self-judgment, guilt, fears, even addiction to energies

Let the Oneness Spring from Nothingness

Adam

The Voice of Wisdom

It has been said that some chase love their entire lives, even throughout lifetimes searching in many places – but the search is always outside the self and never within. If you can unite with a new found beloved inside yourself (as the Anima or Animus that Carl Jung made famous) you will be filled with an inner love, so much so that this inner love will then overflow like a fountain out into the outer world and spray unto others. You will then not have to chase around looking for it, for it will be within.

That gigantic helium balloon of imagination floating above your head can create the space for your own inner lover to unfold and manifest. What is an artist without an imagination. Develop your ability to see, feel and communicate with them internally. Your mind is creative. Fantasize and don’t be shy to share all your intimate desires with them! Like an artist creating a visual masterpiece, these powerful repeated dreams and fantasies will at one point manifest themselves magically in your inner and outer world.

Programming yourself with an inner lover is the most positive, productive thing you can do for healing because unconscious limiting beliefs that you hold about love may then begin to change, which makes your behavior change and ultimately your reality will also change. Be directive and specific in your communications with your inner lover by going to your own Garden of Eden in order to dialogue and listen, never forgetting to share love and emotions for that is what will give the impact for bonding and it will turn a simple intellectual experience into something much more powerful.

Many people are unconscious about how they create their reality and therefore processing is important. Food for thought holds… that in the beginning there was Oneness but by partaking of the tree of the good and evil, a tension developed within and without. This tension of polarity (good/evil) created conflict and chaos – with inside thoughts and body problems being reflecting back out into the world in wars of conflict. The tree in the garden was a poison. Go back and heal the internal conflict that developed at that time. Go back to when you felt as one, in harmony and filled with light, always remembering to be careful – for when you become divided you will be filled with darkness and troubled waters.

Eros and Psyche – Conrad Black & Barbara Amiel in Sacred Marriage.

eros and psyche

A perfect match with Eros and Psyche joined at the same Astrological degree for both Conrad Black and his wife Barbara. This is an indicator of soul mates – two people who have attracted a mate that makes them very happy. Conrad Black holds Psyche at 2 degrees Aquarius which matches her Eros at the same degree. Eros and Psyche are in a process of psychological transformation to gain mature consciousness with Eros, holding the power of attraction which brings these opposites together in a balancing act through a precious form of sacred marriage.

Eros(Έρως) God of love and Psyche(Ψυχή) meaning soul in Greek interact in the myth of Eros and Psyche, where Psyche begins her growth and development with the decision to face up to the truth, all the while being challenged to complete tasks that were initially beyond her ability. The story presents a deep and transformative type of love, and it includes severe hardships which makes the relationship become closer and very important for each lover.

In our own life, Eros represents erotic, passionate love and when someone’s astrological planet touches our natal Eros we want to merge and bond with them. As March 21 2016 draws near, transiting Eros will touch down at 2 degrees Aquarius activating further the chemistry bond of Eros and Psyche in the synastry chart of the two lovers, Conrad Black and his wife Barbara.

Eros and Psyche can also represent the inner HE and SHE that lies within each person. Sometimes this HE or SHE is called “The Beloved”, and it represents the inner lover. For example, the poet Rumi’s would write about his longing for union with his Beloved from whom he felt cut off from. The HE and SHE can also be seen in the context of relating to one’s anima/animus development. This archetype shows how we project our unconscious idea of the All-Woman or All-Man unto an individual in whom we see this ideal essence. Sadly, no one can ever live up to all the divine attributes or qualities that we might project unto them and when they fail to measure up, that is when we start to go through own process of consciousness.

The union of Eros with Psyche can result in a blissful experience of bonding soul and mind. Elements of this tale are found in fairytales such as Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast, but we can also find it in the love story of Conrad Black and his Barbara.

“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.” Oscar Wilde

In My Dreams Before Time Froze

Sensate focus or sensate focusing is a term usually associated with a set of specific sexual exercises for couples or for individuals. The term was introduced by Masters and Johnson,[1] and was aimed at increasing personal and interpersonal awareness of self and the other’s needs. Each participant is encouraged to focus on their own varied sense experience, rather than to see orgasm as the sole goal of sex.

In My Dreams (Tender Moments)

In My Dreams

In the moments between wakefulness and dreams,
Your breath soft on my shoulder
Ripples the dust of day

A stirring, curtains float
Leaves shimmer
Hearts beat, in time

Our imaginations flicker
Sparkle, glimmer, glow
We settle into one another

Stars explode, their light
gentle on your brow
A million years ago, and now

Illuminating the tender moments
between wakefulness and dreams
