The New Species Begins to Emerge

OK. It’s officially “a thing”.  I have a problem with Festival days. screen-shot-2016-09-25-at-3-22-36-pm

No, really, like ‘knots in my stomach and avoidance’ kind of problem. I’ve blamed it on lethargy, laziness or being contrary, and blamed last Samhain’s really strange energy on some disturbing news I had just gotten about one of my Ancestral lines, but after several more Festival days and several more bouts of avoidance, it finally came to some sort of real awareness today.  And I think I can see something emerging.

Song of the Day

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.  I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.”  -Rumi

How a Druid Gets a Guru, Part 3

The final part of my story of my odd path as a Druid with a Guru.

Recently I reposted a couple of blog posts from several years ago (and another iteration of my blog) about my introduction to my “Guru” Neem Karoli Baba, and so I wanted to catch up, with how this has all panned out in the last three and a half years.
I have to say, I’ve never been one to join organized religions-I did one and it really didn’t work out well. With all respect to those who find joy and nourishment in their faiths, the religion I was a part of (a branch of Christianity) was filled with egos, pushiness, misogyny, Continue reading “How a Druid Gets a Guru, Part 3”

How a Druid Gets a Guru Part 2

I am reposting a couple of blog entries from an old blog, from a few years ago-This is an important story of a benchmark in my Spiritual Journey. Current retrospect to follow.

Life after Darshan with Maharaji    April 26, 2013

It’s been three months since my dream about Neem Karoli Baba*. It seems much longer, because I have learned a great deal, about him, about Hanuman, about Ram Dass, Krishna Das, Bhagavan Das, and Hindu deities. I have learned about kirtan, about bhakti, about devotion to one’s guru, satsang, harmonium playing, and the over-the-top, ego-filled, sexualized bad examples of the Americanization of Hindu practices. 
It feels like Continue reading “How a Druid Gets a Guru Part 2”

Song of the Day

“My Baba” by Trevor Hall, with Krishna Das.

I love this song!!

How a Druid Gets a Guru Part 1

I am reposting a couple of blog entries from an old blog, from a few years ago-This is an important story of a benchmark in my Spiritual Journey. Current retrospect to follow.

One Glimpse-Sharing My Important Dream    February 25, 2013neem-karoli-baba-with-cookies-from-ashram

I had a dream that I think was profound and life-changing, in a very Spiritual way.  I’ve had interesting and “special dreams” before, many times, like when our friend, herbal wise man Frank Cook was dying and in my dream I received a confused phone call from him, only to find out Continue reading “How a Druid Gets a Guru Part 1”

A Call to Stand Up, and Stay Seated

For the second day in a row,  I need to be reminded to pull my face out of some negative crap (nope not the election) and focus…balance… For the second day I have been facing an education about unbelievable hate in America. Pervasive, well paid, hate. The kind of hate that makes it hard not to stand up against.

Again today, for the second day,  a magical goddess woman/friend I know has been posting exactly the right thing I need to hear, with synchronicity that is precise! Reminding me to wake up and pull my face out of the feces. These days I am finding myself surrounded by magical goddess women and kind, awake men.

Yesterday I was reminded to let my light shine bright, Continue reading “A Call to Stand Up, and Stay Seated”

The Woman Who Shone the Sun

I am back from my travels and settling back into busy life here on the farm. There is a lot to do, and to some extent I’ve slipped easily back into my routine, although it’s just about Summer Solstice and the world wakes me up crazy early these days. 
But something has changed.
My partner noticed it as soon as I got back. Yes there has been a lot going on astrologically recently, if you believe in that sort of thing-and one comment I read said that the Queen of Heaven, Venus, is getting ready to transmute herself into the wisdom of the Evening Star…I hope that bodes the same for me.
I feel like I’ve been waiting for something, and I haven’t known what, for quite a while now, Continue reading “The Woman Who Shone the Sun”
