Last Month of the Decade
We are in the last month of the last year of the decade. It’s a pretty good time to end on a win.
When we “win” the victory is not over others; it’s a victory over defeatism, dysfunction, and deceit within us. Obstructing-thwarting thoughts removed, our success in our endeavors is almost assured.
The world might have us think that we’re competing in some battle royale for supremacy. I think the real battle is internal “vanquishing” the lazy, complaining, envious self that co-occupies our consciousness, letting the shining powerful real self to step forth.
In a world characterized by scarcity; only so much money to go around, limited resources, limited jobs, energy, etc. (all conveniently made to occur by oil cartels, central banks, and monopolies), it’s then that we start to get into the desperate “dog eat dog” mentality of the so-called free market.
However, in a world characterized by unlimited abundance, natural and not engineered for domination and control by a few, then there is no need to fight for the scraps that fall from the master’s table, as it were, everything is generally available to acquire.
Therefore, while we may not be able to control the ups and downs of the markets and economies, we can control our accessing of unlimited energy from our divine source (the I AM Presence) by eliminating the self-limiting concepts and beliefs and charge forth to do amazing things with the abundance that still flows internally.
Winter Solstice 2019
December brings us to the solstices. Depending on which hemisphere of the Earth you live in, December 21-22, will be either the longest or shortest day of the year; i.e. summer or winter. It’s the solstices and equinoxes which mark out for us the seasons. Between the shortest day of the year and the longest, there are two days which mark the exact midpoints of those extremes where the days are of equal length; hence the name equinox.
It’s the tropical astrology of the West that uses the vernal equinox as the starting point of the zodiac, regardless of what actual stars form the background of it. It’s the sidereal (“star”) astrology of the Vedic school (of which I’m an adherent to) which uses the actual constellations themselves to mark out its zodiac. Therefore, it’s the western variety of astrology which gives a little more emphasis to the day; but it is an event which has solely to do with the relationship of the Earth to the Sun, which is intrinsically important to us all.

We may find ourselves “taken out” of reality for some fantasy world excursions: some impracticality, some delusory irrelevancy, during some moments, but sometimes these dream-transports may allow us to receive inspiring messages.
