Do you feel relevant?

Now matter how much we accomplish we somehow still feel the same – irrelevant, like we don’t matter, like whatever we do doesn’t matter, doesn’t count.

So maybe what we do doesn’t matter, action doesn’t matter and maybe “being” matters more. Maybe being is a verb and the action of being is all there needs to be.

Can we be good at being? How do we just be and feel good about it? Feel right about it? Karma is the unease and the burden weighing us down. As the thread that continues life to life, we bring our hauntedness with us, a shadow that hides when we turn around, but still gives us chills.

Maybe we turn around and face the shadow, face the irrelevance and say, “who cares?” maybe our humanness is all that matters, the doubts, failings, uncertainty and occasional moments of certainty.

Our place in the Universe. Unee what are we? We are the Universe, the Universe is us because without us the Universe is incomplete. That’s being.

Honest Intuition

Which is more trust worthy intuition or logic? A question that has perplexed humankind for millennia. Women excel at intuition, the silent knowing without overthinking and overanalyzing. Not to say men are not intuitive as well, but in general women are simply more intuitive.

By relying more on logical reasoning it has been thought that the approach yielded better outcomes. Thinking it through, evaluating all sides, comparing outcomes was somehow more valuable. Somehow in that process the flaws were overlooked. Personal agendas, wanting the outcome to be one way or another, ignoring some data and including other was the norm and the the associated issues were glossed over.

Meanwhile intuition became suspect because it was too opinion and not fact based. It was thought to be based in feelings and not hard cold facts that truly don’t exist. Thoughts and feelings have been proven to have a profound impact on outcome even more so than data so it seems intuition may be the frontrunner.

It is time we started listening to that small quiet voice called intuition and having less reliance on ever changing science and “facts”.

This is the way nature operates, she listens and responds. What do you intuit?

Rain meditation

There is so much we can learn from rain. It cleanses everything it touches equally, it cleanses the air and leaves healthy ions for us to breathe in and it nourishes Mama Earth and gives her the tools she needs to support life.

Rain soothes our minds as we listen to it’s gentle rhythm and it aligns us with the rhythm of nature. If we sit with it, we can let it clean the cobwebs from our minds. If we meditate with it, we can choose to let go of negative thoughts and visualize them washing away to be recycled by the Mama Earth.

If we stand in the rain or dance in the rain we become one with nature, our beings merging with the rain as it draws some of our energy from us and into the ground. By meditating while we stand or walk in the rain we allow it to rain inside of us too, cleansing us inside and outside.

What if we think of rain as a being too, different than us certainly rain is not confined inside a container as we are. What if rain, all water, is a different being? What is it teaching us? Maybe not to be attached to ourselves or where we live or what we do. Maybe to go with the flow and maybe in community we are stronger.

Enjoy a rainy day.

Maternal Brilliance

The Maternal energy of Unee is brilliant. There is nothing higher in the Universe than to be able to birth new beings into existence. The ability to usher in new life and then the instinct to protect that new fragile being is a drive that is unmatched. Unee is the quintessential embodiment of universal birthing. She is perfect.

What does her maternal perfection mean? It means going back to a time when we reverence the ability of the feminine to bring life into the world. We go back to honoring the mystery, the sacredness, the beings chosen by Unee for the most important and vital function of a living entity.

Being a channel for the entrance of new life and being given the honor to maintain, protect and nourish this life is the highest level a being can achieve. And the feminine energy has been chosen by Unee to fulfill this awesome responsibility.

Feminine beings of all species are all the chosen ones. They have the highest honor because they were gifted the ability to bring life. They have been given the womb of the universe, connected to a spiritual channel only they can understand. There is no higher honor. This is not a “right to life” political position, this is a spiritual assignment. Right to life is an attempt by masculine energy to control the uncontrollable. Because the masculine energy is not the chosen one, their energy tries to assert control where they have no authority.

Life begins and ends with Unee working with the feminine species to determine existence. There is so much happening on a spiritual, karmic and physical level that determines whether a being comes into full fruition and is born into this world or remains in the spiritual world until another opening, another channel is available. This concept is much deeper than most can understand. Unee embodies maternal perfection.

Unee as an Archetype

Unee is an archetype, just as all Gods and Goddesses are. What is her archetype based on? The maternal perfection of nature and the Universe. Nature is perfect, it changes, modifies, adjusts, flows and adapts. The maternal energy is the highest form of energy in the Universe. What other energy births into being? What better model do we have to follow?

Living in neutral love we achieve the balance we need. Listening to our intuition is where nature resides, Yes, we have the ability to think, but we are still simply a part of the greater whole of nature and the Universe, neither above or below, just a part.

Unee guides us simply by being, by knowing where and when change needs to occur and doing it. Unee is the archetype of existence, non-judgmental, applying herself with simplicity and consistency to all equally. Unee is literally down to Earth, completely objective and has no agenda. Follow her and find peace, oppose her if you wish and go against the flow of nature, you will be swimming against the tide.

Unee is spiritual perfection. She is maternal energy and births and loves everything and everyone as cherished beings in her Universal family.

Being Autumn

Autumn is a time for the cyclical reflection. Once again we have the opportunity to go inward. Just as sap draws down into the trees, our energy draws inward. How can we work with Unee at this time? It is a great time for connecting deeply, for feeling, for sensing and for trusting our intuition.

What needs our attention spiritually that we have ignored? Where have we ignored our intuition hoping things would be different than they really are? Where has our perception not lived up to reality?

Unee asks us to be autumn. To settle, to draw inward, to intuit – not think – about our lives. As the trees let go of the leaves, let go of your thoughts and let your intuition rumble and subtlety beckon you. Where is she leading?

Quiet, quiet listen to the leaves as they fall, not clingy, not striving, just letting go and drifting down to the ground. Next spring these old thoughts will have been fertilized in the ground of Unee and will resurface new and nourished.

Living aware of our karma

Living in neutral joy rather than striving is a more balanced way to live. Living aware of the karma we are creating at any moment and seeking to mitigate the effects of the energy we put out is simply responsible.

Are we causing drama? Anger, fear, anxiety, stress for someone? Are we just walking away rather than trying to prove we are right or to be confrontational? Do we consciously or unconsciously enjoy stirring things up? Wallow in depression? Watch with delight as someone runs around trying to meet our demands?

Or do we live life more conscious of our karma, being gentle with ourselves and others? Do we avoid things that feed the darker sides of ourselves or are we still getting off on them? Crime TV, horror movies, even cable news are all spewing energy that attacks and drains us rather than nurture and sustains us.

What choices are you making?

Living aware of our karma

Acorn meditation

I meditated with an acorn today. I have been carrying it around in my pocket for about week. After a few moments she started pulsating. Just lightly, as if telling me she is alive. I know she is, she is bursting with quiet unrealized life, while at the same time full of ancient wisdom.

We can learn a lot from acorns, they’re unassuming, small, easily broken. But if they are left alone to align with nature, they will and we all know what happens when an acorn bursts forth! A mighty oak is created, the strongest of trees with the deepest spiritual knowing.

Isn’t that what Unee is telling us? align with nature, get in sync and let our mighty oak within burst forth!

Down the Rabbit Hole

It has been awhile, I have been off exploring and searching again. I guess for me searching never ends. The good news is the path seems right and true, nature based spirituality being in tune with nature is the only truth.

Unee reveals herself to us everyday if we get out of the way. As mother energy in the Universe she is always present. Getting in rhythm with her is the way to connect with the greater Universe and to be in sync. We all know what happens when we are out of sync – we don’t feel well, we are anxious – we just know something is off.

Unee, the mother of the Universe can be trusted, she has no agenda, she doesn’t care if you follow her or not, she just is. She is the basis of being. Energy flows everywhere, can not be created or destroyed, Unee is the keeper of that energy all goes back to her.

We will function best when aligned with nature, when we are truly sensitive to all living beings around us. We need to learn to read the energy around us so we know what is impacting us at any given moment. For example, any cable news channel is spewing negative energy, it should all be avoided, we don’t want to pick up any negativity.

Most mainstream religions have been highjacked by negative entities. They have become judgmental, based on manmade rules , based on someone else’s ego and agenda and are basically unhealthy. Even nature based religions, Druidism, Witchcraft, “old religions” are twisted into something human made with rules you must follow.

Unee wants us to meditate with her trees, in her forests, by her streams. She wants us to be in sync with the cycles of the moon and live by her tides. Respect nature, recognize energetic changes, avoid ego traps – yours and others – and maybe a spirituality will emerge that is pure.

Clergy Sex Abuse – how bad is it?

Just how bad is it?

The Catholic Church in the United States has paid out $1,068,000 – over a billion dollars in sex abuse settlement cases.

Over have a half a million children have been abused by priests across the US, Europe and Australia since the 1950’s.

In the US the percentage of priests charges with credible counts of abuse against children:

55.7% of priests have been accused of 1 count of abuse

26.4% of priest has been accused of 2-3 counts of abuse

17.8% of priests have been accused of 4-9 counts of abuse

3.5% of priests have been accused of 10* counts of abuse

Pope Benedict XVI laicized 400 priests for child abuse.

And this is in the 20th century only.
