SOLSTICE SUNRISE

995839_169483466564294_1610944119_n

the longest days of the year around the solstice point June 21st

the early dawn chorus woke me to make celebration of the light

and see the world become technicolour as the sun rises

to hear the birds’ chorus of praise

these are the longest days

.

Solstice is the peak of the Self

a moment to honour our place in the divine dream

to affirm all that we can be

but do it ever so humbly….

enjoying who we are, the little self matters too, yet….

surrendering the ego to the greater Being….

we may see through the veils

feel the souls at our side

The growth spurt of Spring is over

it’s the season to step forth with pride

With kin, with clan, an army of lovers at our side.

.

Within the light is concealed the dark

for the journey to summer’s end starts here

autumn will return, the blooms will vanish and the leaves will fall

within joy there must be sadness….

but there’s a whole long day to fit all the feelings in

and THREE MONTHS til the Equinox

when the inner times take over

.

Cancer Sun receives us and challenges us

to balance all our emotions in the light of the summer rays

then at Leo Sun and Lammas

is time to down tools and rejoice in the Way

come Virgo Sun we get busy again

preparing for harvest and the seasons to come

fuelled by the Fire element, Summer wants us to have some fun.

.

Warriors of Light, Shamans of Shadow

Witches of the Winds, Waves, Earth and Fire

There are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of us

BORN AROUND THE WORLD

WAKING UP TO OUR ROLES

DISCOVERING THE DESTINY

But there are many more struggling

one foot still firmly stuck in the old paradigm

of division, dis-ease and dismay…..

Let’s cast spells this Solstice

to bring humanity back to the Way.

Science separates us into boxes and reduce us to molecules

And religion divides us and fuels the lies in the world.

Is it time to give the men in white coats a taste of our own medicine

(psylocibin, lsd, ayahuasca, san pedro and good weed for starters)

let them become the subjects of their own experiments;

is it time use the crucifixes as firewood

send the stone buddhas back to the mountains

‘disperse the gurus with a great laugh’

and discover the path

we have always been on.

.

The answers are not in psychiatry and psychology

the answers are found in embracing mystery

The stars, sun, moon and planets

have been here a lot longer than us.

Our ancestors observed them and discovered the Way

And despite religion, despite science

despite despotism, despite capitalism

the Way can not be stropped, and the Way will have its Day.

.

Imagine the great wheel of the solar system

travelling majestically through space

spinning all the time, generating glory, energy – consciousness

all the planets and moons a single dance

the zodiac the background to the story

a story of gods and angels, animals and humans

elementals and ancestors whispering in our ears

in the magic of the Solstice days

they whisper to us to lose our fears

because WE ARE that consciousness

the Solar System’s space cadets

flying through the galaxy

embodying the divine’s aspects

in these awesome, horny human forms

that are part of nature and filled with light

GET OUT OF THE MIND

to GET OUT OF THE NIGHT

for the mind is there to question and analyse

we have in ourselves, places more deep and more wise.

.

Attune to the cycles and rhythms

Become conscious of the solar system’s synchronicities

YOU are the product of this dance

a PEAK of its experience, a unique achievement

DANCE in your hearts human children

Become an orchestra of many flutes playing

Solstice is here, it’s the season of Pan

GET OUT AND GET NAKED IN THE WOODS IF YOU CAN
