And speaking of Spring !
In between the slow key strokes of my ludite typing skills, ‘seat’ plastered to chair, I have been taking the time during the brief ‘sunny sucker holes’ punctuating the wetness of a NW coast ‘climate change’ Spring, to go for brisk walks with the purpose of ‘learning and deepening’ with the Elemental Masters as we leave Winter and enter into the Awakened flourishing of Spring.
The momentum of Springs’ upward thrusting is often reflected in our personal lives. This of course depends on our own Floral inner landscapes relationship to the Worlds’ Floral network! There is a strong motivation to make and create pressure in our personal interactions and transactions during this time as we follow our ancestors lead, resetting our parameters and boundaries, pushing up out of Winters dormancy & ability to see through the forest to the essence of all phenomena.
In other words this can a time to become testy and “legalistic”, a time to push constitutional frameworks; both personally and Globally.... or to unfold in a relaxed and RESPECT~FULL manner !......To make a NEW plan or GROW some new decisions. A time to let our Chlorophyll RISE UP! Stretch ! Do our Inner Yoga play....stretch our facial plains a we actively let go of our “fascistic” thinking and ideas in any form or expression.
If you find your LIVER to be sluggish and unmotivated. I would suggest two Liver tonics as an offer for you; both can be found on Google or Youtube. . The Battle for Chernobyl; and . Inside Job: The first is a study in co~operation and selflessness associated with the Benevolence of the Floral network; the second a stark study into the lack of vision, care, foresight or maturity evident in our personal lives when our Flora is stunted we refuse to “grow upward’ and follow the impulse of our own personal destiny and the Earths Evolutionary Will.
As I write these words I have needles placed in Liver #1~ “Great Esteem”, Gall Bladder #41~“Foot Above Tears”, the Flora points on the Flora meridians to ‘ unfurl, open & awaken’ me into this cycle of Spring as I approach my 59th year on the Mortal Coil. I have also included Liver #2; “Walk Between”, the Fire point of the Liver to temper the rough edges of Springs abundance with the LOVE wisdom and Illumination of the Heart; AND Gall Bladder #40~Wilderness Mound” to raise me to a higher place so I can find a clear path through any current challenges I face.
Whenever I do this point on myself, I Shamonically fly to a knoll on the divide between the Sheenjak & Chandelar Rivers in the Arctic Wildlife refuge, where I “journey” with a “purpose stone” I left there some years ago. I ask Mother Nature if I need to adjust my personal direction and compass in order to be in greater Service to future generations of the network of Interbeing.
As I finish this piece for the evening; time for rest; I notice the point masters have created a relaxing & easing of all of my facial plains in my body, from the core of the bones out to my dermal layer; thus reminding me of the natural state of spring, where, if we take the time to sit and watch a
Fiddlehead Fern unfurling, we will observe the same relaxed ease of it’s “Birthing”.
Good night and sweet dreams, David Ford
