And an astronomer said, “Master, What of time?”
And he answered:
“You would measure time the measureless and the immeasurable.
You would adjust your conduct and even direct the course of your spirit according to hours and seasons.
Of time you would make a stream upon whose bank you would sit and watch its flowing.
Yet the timeless in you is aware of life’s timelessness,
And knows that yesterday is but today’s memory and tomorrow is today’s dream.
And that that which sings and contemplates in you is still dwelling within the bounds of that first moment which scattered the stars into space.
Who among you does not feel that his power to Love is boundless?
And yet who does not feel that very Love, though boundless encompassed within the center of his being and moving not from Love thought to Love thought, nor from Love deeds to other Love deeds?
And is not time even as Love is, undivided and spaceLess?
But if in your thought you must measure time into seasons. Let each season encircle all the other seasons.
And let today embrace the past with remembrance and the future with Longing.

Here’s the chart for the Monmouth County Shore Area….Long Branch, Asbury Park, Neptune, Belmar areas.    It occurs at 10:12 am this morning.  That means that we should all take advantage of the remaining hours left of the Balsamic Phase to rid ourselves of whatever toxic waste, (ama) we have collected since the last New Moon.  Capishe?

more later……    review the posts on Balsamic/New  Beginnings & Endings.     The search bar is over there on the right….scroll down.

The WayIt’s been a while since I’ve written any feng shui posts. It’s a frequent topic for conversation in a couple of my hatha yoga classes. Go figure.

Yoga. Feng Shui. Well, yes….it does make sense.

Feng Shui is all about looking outside of us to see the things that usually go un-noticed. Un-noticed, not because they’re hard to see (which is possible), but un-noticed because we have probably become habituated or quite accustomed to the sight of what we’re looking at.

For instance, my garage roof is looking quite………………………….untidy.

It’s been that way ever since I’ve moved into the house. It doesn’t leak or create any problems…..it just looks a little messy. It has an old wooden roof, moss growing all over it, one shake at the top/center is missing and, the old white aluminum door is partially green from lack of sunlight. Last year I spent the entire spring/summer season cleaning out the inside which is now quite orderly, for me. My garage sits in the south east corner of my property, sometimes known as the “resource” gua. In terms of local space feng shui (astrology) the garage is on the line that represents the North Node. Hmm. That’s a tricky one to delineate.

Talented feng shui consultants are able to look at things like my garage and get a felt sense of where this untidiness or disorder is showing up in my life. It may or may not have a direct effect on those areas of my life symbolized by the placement of the garage. It’s possible that a different ‘polarity’ is being affected. It helps to have a clear mind when considering (con-sider: with the stars) all of the possibilities. HOW WE CHOOSE TO THINK about something we see affects the outcome. Yes? Of course.Peace Hexagram

 

Yoga is all about what is going on inside. What is present emotionally/mentally (especially on the unconscious level) when I look at my garage? Am I disturbed?

I kinda like it, actually. …….adds a bit of a rustic feeling to the plastic veneer of typical suburbia. Cleaning it out was a good thing, it created clear space for other things to happen…………and A LOT HAPPENED during that time of clean out. Perhaps I’ll tell the story someday.

For now, I think I’ll just go and pick up all the sticks and branches that have fallen around the yard over the past few windy days. It’s good to keep the clutter to a minimum. There’s a New Moon today at 18 degrees of Pisces. The sabian symbol is, “In a gigantic tent, villagers witness a spectacular performance”

Sun’s out!

Bye.
