This June Solstice of Choice and Change

June 21, 2019,

...a time when magic can be done...

A solstice is a time of perfect balance when time and space are equal, a betwixt and between time in every sense and a time when magic can be done and is being done, now. Humanity stands poised between a past of deep and hard learning about the frailties of man and a future where the lessons are done and we reap the reward of all our hard work. The present, now, is a reflection of the challenges of the one and the promise of the other, and it is up to each of us as to how we see this precious time – with trust and optimism or with fear and resistance: remember, our environment and state of being are a mirror for our state of mind and heart. They are a mirror, too, for our gifts and skills and sense of service, and a wise disciple uses them not for personal gain but altruistically, to help others, passing on her knowledge gladly or developing his strengths to benefit the occupants of the Planet as best she can; the giving out and sharing is the route to true abundance, while doing otherwise brings poverty of soul. Balancing the negative through the positive negates the former, just as balancing dark with light causes the dark to be gone. The Solstice can be seen as polarisation as well as balance, and we can see, today, this being demonstrated as the Planet as we know her is threatened by climate change just as she shows herself ever more beautiful; as politics is riven by different forms of extremism at the expense of moderation; as power-hungry countries use mind control to subdue their people while  hailing their democratic internationalism; as artificial intelligence and the internet exert their own controls and mind games on a willing people as loving communication that they have replaced dies. It does not have to be this way. The choice is between mind or heart, compassion or intolerance, giving or grasping, honouring or disempowering, taking or ceding responsibility, turning a blind eye or seeing the truth, doing what is right or only what you want. Today it is the Solstice, and with it comes another opportunity for us to do better, to ponder, to learn and to share and to change. It begins with you and me, and ends with us all.     [byline]]]>

  1. Claire, today I have to let my best friend Bella pass away. She has been with me 16 years as a loving dog. I hope as she passes today it means something on this auspicious day. Please send us love at 5.20pm today. I hope my mum will be there to meet her and I will one day. Xx

  2. To Lorna Smith:
    Sorry to hear of your loss. I've lost beloved feline companions before, and it's pretty tough to deal with. As they remind me still, they are still here for me as protectors and beloved companions.
    Blessed are they that mourn, for they shall be consoled. - The Beatitudes
    William Smith
