Embrace the Moonlight

I love the moon too much to be afraid of the night.

~

now is the time for me to set myself to rights,

it’s time to stop bemoaning my evil plight,

come out of the dark shadows into the light,

moonlight is better than the blackest of nights,

and that’s where I’ve been, cowering in fright.

~

There is no point in waiting until tomorrow, there is no mileage in procrastination, and mañana isn’t even English.  I need to take action this day.

There have been things in my life I have not understood, or have chosen not to understand, or have chosen to ignore ~ and these things are now coming out of the darkness of my deep subconscious into the light of my conscious awareness.

Recently it has all been a bit intense, and at times I’ve struggled through cognitive dissonance, not knowing who I am, or what I want from Life.  But I have been shocked from complacency by both my friend and my Goddess.  Today, I am blessed with a powerful and strange energy which has allowed me to make a brutally honest assessment of myself.

This intense, powerful, strange energy is allowing me to make changes within myself I have not previously had the power to achieve.

Yet, I know that any change I attempt to make from within my personality, my id, and my ego, should be for the greater good or it will never work.  I have had far too much help to be selfish and make changes that will only benefit myself.  But, as I improve mine own self, it will reflect in every aspect of my world and my life.

As I give to the world, so I shall receive in return.

As I walk from the darkness into the moonlight, my life and my world will change for the better.  I have realised that to cower in fear in the darkness is to stray from the true warrior’s path.  I thank my friend and my Goddess for that new awareness.

Vacation

We see the same moon, you in your world and me in mine.

The reason I haven’t posted anything for a little while is that I’m vacationing in; California, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming.

I won’t be back in the garret until Sunday September 10th.  Look for some very cool posts from me right after that.

Take care everyone.

Scenes on Sunday #26

Patterns In The Sand

naturally there developed strange patterns

psychedelic sequenced structures in the sand

new archetype paradigm shapes passed on

gravitational sun and moon driving the tide

the moving sea writes, having written recedes

moves on, to endlessly repeated ephemeral rhythms

The Urban Spaceman’s Guide To Survival

Today, a funny song and a serious lesson for all the real men out there.

There’s one thing about being successful with women the urban warrior must never forget ~ she is always right, and nine times out of ten you will be wrong, (in her eyes anyhow).  There is no mileage in arguing with your girl, even if you do have the craziest name in English Popular Music.

Please listen responsibly.

Humour doesn’t always translate across the sexes, what women find really funny men often don’t, and visa versa.

As an example of dual standards, a girl told me a joke yesterday, about the 5 things a woman looks for in the ideal man ~ who, of course doesn’t actually exist, so she gets 5 men instead.  It was even more sexist and less funny than this woman in the moon joke.  Guys, if she tells you an unfunny sexist joke that gets at you and all men, don’t even pretend to laugh.

It’s always OK for a girl to tell sexist jokes that get at you and all other men, whereas it isn’t ever OK for a man to be misogynist.  A man should never tell jokes that make fun of women, it’s just not worth the cheap laugh.

Real Celestial Navigation

All Life on Earth springs from sunshine, tides, and seasons.

P569

All Life on Earth is governed by the Sun, the Moon, and the stars.

At night most men can reliably find their Pole Star, which in the Northern Hemisphere is Polaris.  If you can find the pole star you can travel in any direction you wish.  In daylight it’s easier, all you need to find north / south is sunshine and a stick, although a watch does help.

Why would anyone need any of this when we have satellite navigation?  You will know if ever your batteries fail.  Even the Navies of the world are going back to teaching celestial navigation.

aries-ramBut there is more to it than that.  Our very personalities may well be driven by the relative positions of the sun, moon, and the stars.  I would bet that everyone reading this knows their star sign.  Mine is Aries, and I am an archetypical Aries.; selfish, quick-tempered, adventurous, impulsive, foolhardy…  Almost every guy and all the woman I know are fairly typical of their star sign’s supposed character traits.

How does that work?  Damned if I know.  It could be gravitational, day-length, cosmic rays, or the etherial spirituality of the cosmos…  One thing I can guarantee, a real astrologer can tell almost everything about you if they know the time, date, and place of birth.

There are some fundamental questions we could ask ourselves;

Should I be able to read a map?

Do I always need to know where north is?

Is it only very stupid people who rely on satellite navigation systems?

Should I make a habit of asking women what their star sign is before I date them?

When my personal astrologer makes a prediction, do I need to take it seriously, or can I safely ignore her?

Ask yourself, is the truth really out there?
