the dust that falls from the sky on a high windy day is borne here from far unknown origins. it carries countless particles of our ancestors, called forth by the winds of these times. the necessary mantric chants have been performed & the spirits have gathered around us. the old mammoths buried beneath ancient stone & earth are sending forth their cellular emissaries: ancestors, all of them. they're restlessly roaming the wild wind currents of the skyways. Shiva! our most humble helpers have now arrived with this new wind. they are widespread, part of this vast crucible that constitutes our planet earth. the winds of change stir with the return of the ancestors & the old earthly dreaming. the long scroll of maya rolls out the script that we all must fumble our way through. it goes on & on, through ups & downs forever. it brings new challenges, such as the winds our primeval ancestors lash us with now. they demand our accountability, those ancient ones. they urge us to respond, all those ghosts & phantoms of the past, the specters & spirits who have risen into the wind to get our attention now in this time of planetary ripeness. Shiva! we hear the message & we ask for Your guidance. our hands are covered thick with the dust of the ancestors & we know not what to do! Shiva, we implore Your grace!
the sky is aswarm with color & form, astral beings struggling to be born from misty glowing primal substance. ceremonies of birth & transformation take place daily in the pregnant sky overhead, expressing the glory of their evolving colors & shapes. they move, swirl & communicate in ephemeral script embedded with subtle messages of renewal & release. we are cherished. we are cared for by vast lifeforms who enliven our gifts & our challenges (for they are so similar, like kin). they are Your emissaries, Shiva, Your mystic, yet visible, hands, moving in holy flowing sign language within the portal of the sky. You give us such illuminated invitations to Your transcendent dance, whether in the heavens or in the midst of daily working life on earth. You send constant invitations to the here & now, wake-up calls both gentle & fierce & You don't abandon us here. You will always bring more opportunities. the sky is aswarm with color & form, reminding us in its vibrant glory of the hidden hands of blessing comforting us.
