This Christmas, perhaps your choices have never been more stark.  If you are one of us who endeavor to live in the vibration of peace, and love, and goodwill to all; if you are one of us, you will be finding it increasingly more difficult to remain neutral when it comes to your involvement in the polar opposite and prominent vibration of fear, and anger; of retribution and aggression.

The Universe has given you a stark choice, and on one hand it makes your choices easier; and your actions will betray your hidden decisions.  It’s as easy as, “I want to belong to this club, and I don’t want to belong to that club.” 

In truth, very little has changed on the wide screen of your apparent reality.  But the puppet-masters of your imagined 3-D reality have enlarged and exaggerated certain aspects of the program and diminished and blurred out other parts.  So you could honestly be at a loss about what is real and what is not.

Be aware:  it is better to rest in confusion and not knowing, than to seek and grasp at your first knee-jerk responses to external and manipulative stimuli.  Be aware:  that multiple special interests are purposefully trying to control your emotions and behavior at this time.  You will see these attempts quite easily when you look out on the “real” world without judgment or fear or assumptions. 

These are those “spiritual” eyes and ears foretold of in the holy books that empower your innate gift of discernment which will bend you toward the energy of love, instead of fear.  You contain this gift and many others but you will never realize them if they are struggling to take root in a planting bed that is contaminated with fear and suspicion.

This Christmas, you could give yourself a great gift when you nurture yourself with the energy of love.  That is the essence of the Christmas story.  We are witness again to the coming of the light of love – the Christ Light – in the midst of the bleak midwinter.  

The outer world has brought us a holiday shroud of doubt and distrust to obscure the promise of the emerging light.  But you will nurture the failing candle light; you will fan the coals with your audacious passion for truth and generosity. 

And you will find your way around the prevailing ignorance and meanness of the day to turn back the army of hollowed-out haunted souls that have lost their way.  This is the gift of the magi and you are that:  one of the kings, the mystics, the magicians who have brought sacred gifts – not just for the Christ-child, but for the emerging Christ-self in you and me.  These are the gifts of spirit that put to shame all the sparkling and shiny crap under the tree.

We do not separate ourselves from the physical dimension, or set ourselves above or apart.  More than ever, we must be fully present at this critical “tipping” point in time to take our place at the doorway for the turning of the age.  We will decide what grows from all this restless composting and we will bring it forward with some gentle persuasion . . . and sometimes with a shove and a shout!  Or maybe a howl!

I had a pastor in the Unity church some years ago who every now and then would get fired up at the crescendo of his Sunday message and he would bolt to the edge of the stage, reach out his hand beseechingly to the congregation and implore, “Stop being stupid!”

That seems to be the theme of the day as we toddle lamb-like out of March and into April.  Here in Indiana we have had front row seats to the bumbling machinations of our statehouse and our governor as they first try to throw it in the face of progressive and free-thinking elitists everywhere who want to give equal rights to EVERYBODY.  Then they stumble over each other trying to explain to the rest of the nation and the world that our new law is not about legalizing discrimination against the LGBT community and others.

The governor, who has aspirations for higher office, assembled some of the most heinous of gay-haters to watch him sign the bill into law, and they just clapped and clapped and clapped.  Now they had a law to protect religion in Indiana.  Thing is, religion doesn’t need any protection in Indiana, of all places.  In Indiana we have a church on every corner and we proudly attend the institution of our choice every Sunday and sometimes even on Wednesday.  Religion is doing just fine; no protection needed.

Now I want to go into a rant about what Jesus would do, but that’s not what this blog is for.  I want to find the meaning and the purpose for what looks like the last gasp of the “religious right” after they have gotten everything they want, and they have gorged themselves on power in this state, and still they are not satiated, and they want to thrust a big middle finger into the faces of the free-thinkers around the rest of the country to say, “See, we can live in the last millennium and the last century if we want; if not the previous century or the century before that.”

This is what we are about on the last day of March, coming into the profound energies of April and its springtime.  Driving toward Bloomington this morning I was greeted by bright yellow daffodils nodding their sun-kissed heads at me like the masses who waived palm fronds at the triumphant Jesus riding into Jerusalem on a donkey.  The energies of April promise a physical manifestation of the continuing shift from the old paradigm to the new one, and the Blood Moon of the 4th is just one more daffodil along the road, one more palm frond along the path that ushers in the new age.  My mantra for this time is from scripture:  “Old things are passed away, behold all things have become new”.

Those who hold to the constructs of the past, like our governor and our congress, are going down on the Titanic while they busily rearrange the deck chairs.  They need to wake up and begin to make themselves relevant.  The reaction from other states and corporations has forced them to truly have a “come to Jesus” moment.  I can see Jesus holding out his hand to them, imploring:  “Stop being stupid”.

It bears noting that many traditional Christians are noticing the coming of the Blood Moon as coinciding with some end-times scripture, and wondering if this wouldn’t be an ideal time for the second coming of  Christ and/or the rapture.  I can only say yes, it would be a great time.  For myself I see the emergence of the Fifth Age and the new paradigm as being completely in sync with the prophecies of the Christian Bible.  I am mindful of the dear ones who have died this past year; and I imagine they have been called home (raptured?) so they can work for the rest of us from the other side.  With this Blood Moon, I see that everything has been accomplished for our movement into the Reign of Christ Consciousness on Earth. The Bible doesn’t claim that this transition will be entirely peaceful.  We are in the birthing process, and it can get messy.  And it is all complicated by those who doggedly hang onto the old ways. 

The Easter season reminds us that we and the culture and the time . . . cannot be reborn unless something significant dies.  During this time, notice what needs to fall away in your own life, so you can step into the excitement of being a spirit, fully enjoying its brief time in a body, and ushering in the new paradigm.  There are no coincidences; you were born at this critical point in time for a reason.
