On Pain and Suffering

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself.
If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world,
then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself.
Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of
your own self-transformation.

- Wang Fou, Hua Hu Ching

Our Cosmic Origins and Earthly Destiny

Some thoughts in answer to the question, "why is there pain and suffering on our planet?"

We Rise by Kneeling

You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe,
an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person,
but a focal point where the universe is becoming
conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.

Eckhart Tolle

Legendary Journeys of Hercules ~ Scorpio

The task of Scorpio finds Hercules slaying the 9-headed hydra. As he cut off one head, two more would take its place. Quickly becoming overwhelmed, Hercules recalled his teacher's words, "We rise by kneeling."

Lunar Theme: Rebirth "This October 13, 2015 (Oct 12 MST) New Moon ... occurs amongst the stars of the Virgin and conjoins the Dwarf Planet Haumea ... (pronounced how-MAY-ah) ... the goddess of childbirth and fertility in Hawaiian mythology ... The Uranus-Eris conjunction opposite Haumea has been and will continue to be extremely influential in the tearing down of our old world paradigm and the birthing of a new world consciousness, especially accelerant when Uranus conjoins Eris [The Great Disrupter] ... Mars, Venus and Jupiter also conjoin ... impelling us to mobilize and expand in demonstrable action upon the inner changes we have made ... in our values, in our capacity to be receptive to far greater changes coming in our lives, and in our capacity to live from the audacity of a fearless wide open heart."

Balance ~ The Libran Way ~ Spiritual Focus, October 2 - 8

Libra

Our Earth has focused within it a miniature of Cosmic Problems.
This planet is literally the focus within Cosmos of the evolution
and the battle between Light and Darkness. It is created for
this purpose and is the service it renders the Cosmos.

- Lucille Cedercrans, Applied Wisdom Vol. 2

Balance ~ The Libran Way

Libra Zodiacal Deity

For this, the first full week of the Libra full moon lunar cycle, we offer related materials at the above links for further exploration of that which calls us into Balance and Equilibrium.

The divine is not something high above us.
It is in heaven, it is in earth, it is inside us.

Libra Festival Meditation ~ Audio
Thursday, October 5 at 11:40 am PDT / 18:40 UT

With the Sun in Libra and Moon in Aries ~ the polarity of the 2 luminaries is reversed from their position at the Aries Festival of the Risen One that occurred this past April 10.

In our work of unifying the pairs of opposites, we now may endeavor to integrate the Divine energies imparted in the Aries Festival, 6 months ago. The lunar eclipse is a catalyst for this service to manifest and so, to assist in the transformation of planet Earth into its rightful position as a sacred planet.

Lunar Theme: Winds of Change & New Beginnings - An Eclipse Lunar Cycle "This September 13, 2015 (Sep 12 MST) New Moon occurs under the tail of the Lion and the tail of the Great Bear ... This is a windy and fiery area of the zodiak, one that can stimulate dynamic creative expression, but one that can also be filled with diversionary commotion and grand spectacle. Thus discernment from a place in inner emotional and physical clarity is required ... There are a plethora of events in this lunar cycle ... The eclipses [New Moon/partial solar & Full Moon/total lunar] also surround the equinox, which occurs on September 23, an event stimulating a need to initiate change ..."

Peace Begins Inside

May the reign of Light and Love and Justice be begun.
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with us.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Externalisation of the Hierarchy

Path to Peace

Invoking the Spiritual Significance of those events that challenge and initiate crisis in our Life offers opportunity for enlightenment.

When we know that All is energy, we take responsibility for grounding our own energy and fully honor the choices we make.

Virgo’s Blended Dual Light

Virgo ~ The blended dual Light.
Two lights are seen ~ bright and strong, the light of form;
one faint and dim, the light of God. This light is distinguished
by a waxing of one and the waning of the other.
It differs from the light in Gemini.

- Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Astrology

This is a year of much transition and opportunity, and the lunar cycle of Virgo began with the solar eclipse in north America on the day of the new moon (Monday, August 21 at 11:30 am PDT / 18:30 UT).

Virgo and the Initiatory Journey

Along the Lighted Way ~ the path of the zodiac marking our sun’s annual journey through the heavens ~ the Light of Virgo plays a most profound role in preparing humanity for initiation, toward the fulfillment of our Divine Destiny.
