The Upside of this Budget

Budget

May 16, 2014

Years ago I had a vision of a new world which mostly was about people in community growing food, living simply, with music and laughter and instead of competition, there was companionship, conviviality and community. It felt awesome.

The recent Australian budget announcements triggered something in me. I didn’t watch it. But so many people were up in arms about it that I felt that tingle that I feel with a vision being recognised. Hardship isn’t nice or easy, but perhaps it ignites the creative human spirit to thrive and prosper despite a money system determined to keep people caged.

We have so many tools to use, and now is very seriously the time to use them. Dream your life into being. Don’t put up with any of the fear mongering. You are smart and creative and “can-do”. There are so many alternatives to conventional living and I bet this community is rich in information! Homeschooling, growing your own, self-sufficiency, cruelty-free living, different barter systems, living off grid — I’ve done all of it and lived to tell the tale! I bet others have too.

One of the things Philip Carr-Gomm said in our film This Sacred Earth: The 2012 Phenomenon, was how do we make living with less more hallowed. I always really liked that idea. And it is something I have given a lot of thought to over the years.

Our society has made material wealth and stuff a goal, but the result doesn’t seem to be making people happy. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t all be prosperous — I’m saying our culture is broken. Too much depression. Too many suicides. Too much anger. Too much violence. To me that isn’t the sign of a healthy society. So I’m saying the budget may be the last straw for many people and change is being forced upon us and we have to get creative and change the way we are living — with each other, with our work, with our planet, with our animals.

So these are my thoughts about the budget. I’m quietly hoping that instead of suffering, people will get creative and the foundation for a kinder, gentler, better, more supportive world will take root.

Word on the Wind Energy Alert – Post-Equinox and April Energies

March 30, 2014

Below is my second vlog (video blog) entry, which I’ve called Word on the Wind Energy Alert. This time, I talk about the Law of Attraction as it relates to activism, and the energies of the Equinox. Both of these topics came from questions asked by you. So if you have something you’d like me to talk about, leave a comment below and I’ll see what I can do.

Also, make sure you read the Current Energies section that is under the video. I talk about the New Moon and April energies.

New Moon and April Energies

From everything I’ve read, the stage is set for a massive world shift. It’s very, very exciting!

So here in the New Moon energies, make sure you set your intention to dream in the kind of world you really want – for yourself and the world!

Please note that we are currently being buffeted by major solar activity, so hang on to your hats. Sometimes they bring up stuff that’s not easy to deal with. So if you can choose the path of love, forgiveness, awareness and joy — go for it. No one said we had to suffer. It’s just that we seem wired to do that very well! We do however, need to do our personal work. So look at what is up in your life for the deepest healing.

Meanwhile there is so much global tension building and change happening that once again I have to liken this period to the 1960s on speed. The collective fear is an explosion that we would rather didn’t happen.

Way back in the 1980s, Sir George Trevelyan assured us that the Unseens wouldn’t let World War III happen, as the impact on the other planets was just too huge. We are all connected. So I’m sure we are being carefully watched. However, that doesn’t make the global tension any easier to bear, especially for empaths and sensitives.

So I can only echo what every astrologer seems to be saying — expect transformational change in April. The astrology is intense. Expect the unexpected. Expect the best! And surf those waves! Maybe this crazy upside work will right itself in April. Maybe the human species will flower and the environment and animals will be safe.

To us ultra-sensitives, it is time to do our personal work, send deep peace out daily, and do everything we can to be peace ourselves. Keep your centre! And one of the ways you can do that is by staying in community. We’re all going through this at different stages, and the people gathering around you are the ones who are probably going through it like you are. So hold each other up and keep the faith.

The world is separating into two paradigms, and this is what we need to remember. The New Earth is here, and so is the old one. Lots of people are having challenges as the world they thought was real, is changing. If you are finding people exploding around you, send them blessings and love. If you find people struggling, send them blessings and love. Respond don’t react and keep walking the high road. Unconditional love is the way forward — as hard as that might be sometimes! So keep doing daily meditations and prayers focusing on Divine Love and Deep Peace. Keep talking. The shared experience helps others know they aren’t going through this alone. And that helps.

As I said in my vlog (above), keep your eye on the world you want to create out of the ashes, not the world that is dissolving.

It will be interesting to see what happens — a very exciting time to be sure. World history in the making! We will experience inner and outer changes, and with the astrology of two eclipses and a Grand Cardinal Cross, I’m expecting the end of the old paradigm and the beginning of the new. Inside and out! Now, we know those things don’t happen immediately and at all once, but April is a powerful month, and what happens has to be seen in the context of the evolutionary shift we are going through. It is huge. And it is now upon us.

We all now know that the time between eclipses can be intense. And the Grand Cardinal Cross comes in the middle of that. This is change with a capital C — of long held dreams realised, of more access to our Divinity, of the creation of a better world — so don’t go down the plughole of the old paradigm. Stay up and co- create with new vision. Magic!

Like I said, I’m excited.

I’m also reminded again to say — now is the time to stay in faith, not fear.

Cushioned By Love

For me, on one level, the “out there” tension is pretty crazy. Like other ultra sensitives and sensitives, we feel the earthquakes, we feel the distress of the animals and the humans. And that can be challenging.

On the other side, it feels like I am being cushioned by love, especially after the traumatic initiations of 2013. Last night, I was doing ceremony in my special space and a little bat came in. Bat Medicine is about shamanic rebirth. Traditionally, shamanic healers went through fairly brutal initiations before taking up the mantel of healer. So for me, I was being told to accept the next level up from where I have been. I’d passed my tests. I also asked the bat for a personal message and was told that he wanted to bring more light to my ceremony and awareness. And this is what I mean about the increased amount of love. There is more support, more love, and good friends who are just there, supporting the greater effort, and the next part of the journey will certainly be interesting.

I share this with people to give you hope during the challenges. Just remember, it takes strength to become a butterfly and no matter how tough it gets – there IS Love out there for you – both seen and Unseen.

Word on the Wind Energy Alert – March 2014

Hello all, I shared this video with one friend in need who said it felt like a great big hug, and I hope that is how anyone struggling with the current energies feels after watching. Just know so many are struggling at the moment and everyone needs a little hope and lots of love and hugs. Hang in there.

I’m wanting to create more videos for you, with the intention of nourishing, informing and inspiring you. Below is my first vlog (video blog) entry, which I’ve called Word on the Wind Energy Alert. Please leave a comment below and let me know what you think. And if you have any questions you might like me to cover in the future, let me know in the comments as well. You’ll also want to read the Current Energies section that follows (they are similar, but different).

Current Energies

Well, we had the February Mercury in retrograde, and it was okay except many people felt depressed, apathetic, and as if they were in a holding pattern. The New Moon brought up a whole lot of tension and I found myself crying somebody else’s tears, which worried me as I often do that before a death. Everyone was okay here, however, so I’m not sure where it came from. We are all becoming so attuned to each other and the collective. I thought it might have been Mother Earth. And indeed there was a major earthquake that day in Japan. But it was like a mass wailing – somewhere. There was also a lot of angry energy and tension flying around, like the dark masculine having a last bite.

Many people still feel in a kind of a holding pattern, and across the board it seems like finances are tight. This could be forcing us to look at different ways of living with the planet – and I have long seen us all taking more control of our own food production. At home, we are growing sprouts and wheatgrass in the kitchen and have reclaimed our garden back from the goats and cows. However I do believe that lack is just a thought, and that we need to really get that there is more than enough – in fact , plenty for all to thrive.

The good news is that we are still on evolutionary track, and we just have to ride with crunchy waves, finding solace in nature as much as possible. Nature is our healer and we really need to be hanging out more with our Mother, who is ahead of us in the evolutionary game.

Lots of people saying lots of things about what is coming – but truly, no one knows for sure, except that we are shifting. It seems like we are shifting faster and I’ve been shown a portal/gateway around the March Equinox. This is always a special time, but I’m told this one is going to be important. So make sure you spend some time to feel what is happening. Be aware and conscious and mindful.

I feel this tremendous excitement, and I have no reason to feel excited – that I personally know! Hand feeding 300 animals, most of them grazing animals, is hard going and brings up a lot of survival fear that every day I have to transform into gratitude, love and trust. But as heart intelligence knows more than me, and my heart is definitely telling me something good is happening, I’m trusting that feeling, and it’s a lot more fun than worrying, which is what the old me would do.

The March Equinox comes on the heels of the next full moon and another new moon in March – lots of new beginnings. This really is a good time to set your foundations for what you might like your higher dimensional life to look like. Start getting ready. What makes you really happy? Your heart’s happiness is the key to everything. Get into the higher frequency of joy, and watch the magic unfold.

The Equinoxes, like the Solstices, are very potent times indeed and my guides are excited. They tell me that there is a door opening in March and April, and beyond that door is a fresh canvas for those of us who choose to go through. (Actually the image was of lots of clouds – so we will see!) Apparently, another lot of souls won’t want to, and while this could be very challenging, we have to respect their decision and celebrate their life.

The animals say this all the time. Celebrate life every single day. We have to start living with more passion and love!  Make every moment count and bring the Wild Divine Feminine alive.  Time to wake up and dance to the music no one else can hear!

Energy Alert: February 2014 – Year of the Unicorn

Unicorn

February 10, 2014

Welcome to 2014 and the Year of the Unicorn. Well, okay — the wooden or green horse — but it’s the year of the Unicorn! That means it is about transformation and action. Wooo hoo!

I mean, how did we get the energy of two new moons in January and one a Super Moon? Talk about a rocket ship forward into a New Era.

It’s a whole new energy from the whole shedding of the skin thing we did last year — which is great. Phew! We are now brand new. And all those old ways of doing things just don’t cut it anymore.

Even the reactions to intense solar flare activity is different (and we are still having that, as we speak – so you might feel a bit dizzy or out of sorts). Andrew and I have been feeling at times, very high and goofy — very floaty. A feeling that is impossible to ground into any sort of seriousness. We just feel excited. Because it is the year of the Unicorn, and that really appeals to Bush Elves. There’s a feeling of optimism and positivity in the air. Anything could happen.

It’s time to unhitch and ditch the past, and move into the real, authentic you. We are all unique – so how can you bring your unique spirit to the world? Honour yourself and set your compass to Home, which is your Heart. This is a year for taking risks to be you, and making them work. Grounding them! Especially if you are passionate and excited and focussed and active. And the word here is “unique.” There is no competition. Each of us is here for a reason with our own self-expression of whatever it is we are here to do. So drop all your programming and examine who You really are. You are not a reaction. Or a limitation. You are just pure shiny you!

Live Well Despite It All

Magic abounds. This morning, as Andrew and I were discussing our hand-feeding animals options, and starting to sink emotionally a bit (last year was not much fun), two beautiful eagles appeared right above us to lift our spirits again. Magic!

It feels like so much lightness and positivity as the old world crumbles. And it is crumbling. And the advice I have been given is to detach. Now this doesn’t mean you don’t care at all. Because it is important we do care. But if you can accept that a lot is going to change this year in the old world, and focus on building the new world instead, then it might go more quickly, and less painfully for you and everyone else. What we give energy to, grows. And we all need to really get that. So be an activist for sure, because we need the change makers. But watch your emotions and feelings. This is we why are feeling so upbeat at home, because we are working on creating a better future, and we keep seeing, despite the horrors, that the world is already changing to a more compassionate, caring place. That’s exciting!! And that’s people power.

One of the things Spirit showed me last year was that we all had to “live well, despite it all”. So this is something to remember if you find yourself caught up in the drama of the old world collapsing. It doesn’t matter what is going down, try and find the bright side. I wake up every morning and do my gratitudes, and it sets me up for a better day, despite any adversity. I know everyone says to do that — but do do it. It makes a difference. It was always said that the New Earth would arise out of the ashes from the old one. So just remember, you are building the new one!!

Change!

I wonder how many others are feeling like you have unhitched from the old world? This Bush Elf is now very impatient for change, and the galloping Unicorn doesn’t make it any easier! We are in Change Process. Metamorphosing. Woo hoo! And now’s the time to reach for your highest and best, and to figure out ways to ground that into current reality.

If you are wondering what you are really here for, try finding a good numerologist, because the code can be cracked by the numbers! What is your date of birth? It tells you what your soul came here to do. One of my favourite books for this is Dan Millman’s The Life You Were Born to Live: A Guide to Finding Your Life Purpose (Amazon).

This year is about really unshackling yourself from whatever story you are entangled in and finding your Authentic You. If you re brave and allowing, you’ll find your Higher Self, leading you into more of your heart-centered work. If it feels heavy, think twice before stepping in. If it feels good, do it! It’s all about setting yourself up for your new heart-centered work, and building a strong foundation. Because from there you will fly.

The big dates to watch for are the March Equinox, another shift. And then there is amazing astrology at the end of April which has all the astrologers very excited and to be honest, expect the unexpected. This might be the motto for this year: Expect the unexpected. Globally and personally. And take those leaps of faith to follow what your heart is longing for you to do. Keep affirming your I AM presence — but watch what you are I AM-ing!

Evolution-wise — well becoming “lighter” and grounding that light into strong foundation is what this year is about. It does feel a better year and all those suffering Post -Traumatic Stress Syndrome from last year, re-read today’s blog. Have hope. Take a breath and intend that nothing is going to be as bad as last year ever again. Get determined to get joyful and don’t be wishy washy about it. Keep walking the highest road. Are you operating from the highest ethics? Are you being as green and kind and compassionate as you can be? Are you in a state of curious allowing?

Andrew and I are changing what we are doing this year — because — it’s Divine Timing and it’s … the year of the Unicorn. We’re setting up lots of fun so make sure you are on the newsletter list so you can join a community dedicated to healing through fun, and deeper, more sacred connections to animals and nature. Here’s a sneak peek: we’ve been gleefully rehearsing some comedy routines in the kitchen, stepping over tiny goats and cats and dogs while we prepare their dinner. Watch this space! And please, enjoy the year of the Unicorn, and make it as fun as you can!!

Vegan Solstice/Christmas

candle_285967174_51196b3ebf_z

Andrew, Tamsin and I always celebrate Solstice instead of Christmas because of our spiritual pathway. The ancient Celts would celebrate the longest day, and this year, like last year, and probably a few more to come, the solstice is especially a portal for higher growth. Some channellers are even expecting many to receive their key to the 5D door. But we all know  that nothing is automatic, because if you haven’t laid the foundation, your body won’t be able to tolerate the higher frequencies.

So we will be doing fire ceremony (or candle ceremony) and taking the day off to relax. The 22nd is a Sunday here, and so there will be no interruptions, which will be nice. We are so busy during the year that often at these special times these days, all we want to do is be quiet together.  And this gift of quiet down time together, reading, being, watching movies, watching the sun…. is a gift in itself.

Many animal sensitives will be sitting down to a Christmas meal with family who might not share their sensitivity or awareness about animals. Perhaps, as a gesture of kindness to animals, on this supposedly sacred day, it might be time to reconsider the menu. We all know that animals suffer terribly so that humans can feast on their corpses. And I seriously think it’s time we all considered the vulnerable in our circle of compassion. Don’t you?

If there is resistance in your family, tell them it is the new era of kindness here in nearly 2014 and that you will bring amazing food. Knock their socks off with a vegan delight. Be kind to them, but be firm. The animals depend on you.

There are tons of recipes on the net.  Just google Vegan Christmas.  Here’s one example: http://www.veganeasy.org/Christmas-Recipes

If you need some ideas for vegan desserts, please remember our Loving Kindness Chocolate Indulgence recipe ebook. Lots of yummy treats suitable for the holidays.  And the proceeds gift the animals with hay.

Here’s a recipe to try:

Here’s an easy recipe for children (and adults) that Tamsin made for us!

Ingredients: One carton So Good Chocolate Soy Milk

Pour into popsicle moulds and freeze. Yummy vegan ice creams are the result. If you want to try something extra yum, add Sweet Williams Vegan chocolate chips.   You can also add those to coconut milk and sweetener of choice.  Very yum.

Have a wonderful holiday season!!

The Art of Being the New Human

November 27, 2013

Snake SkinAs we go deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of new vibrant light and the breaking dawn of the promised land, there are two ways of behaving.

You can express yourself as the New Human – someone who is kind, courageous, communicative, who walks in integrity, honesty and with ethics. Someone who behaves impeccably and for the Highest Good of All.

Or, you can choose to be seduced by the drama of the old world and still act out betrayals, back stabbing, gossip, competition, control, fear, sorcery, lies and general nastiness and mean-spiritedness.

Right now there seems to be a lot of this latter choice, as the Dark Energies lash about in their death throes.

But there is a problem to the old behaviour.

In this life we have free choice, but as we are connected to Mother Earth, it is vital we Lightworkers do what we came here to do. And that is to heal and release old karma, not make any more, and be the new human we came here to be.

The “not make any more” is actually really important.

This is what it means to behave impeccably. When we behave to an inner moral and ethical code of conduct, we affect the world in a positive way. We affect our Mother Earth in a positive way. We are all connected. When humans behave in a dark and negative manner, it affects our Mother in a negative way. To come into harmony with the world and the weather, we need to do our work. It is that simple.

This is what I teach in Level II of my Animal Shamanism course. I give a code of conduct based on the ancients, which are still relevant today.

When we act out of integrity, we create new karma for ourselves.  New karma effectively keeps us from the sweetness of a higher dimension.

That is why it is so important we choose to be kind as much as we humanly can.

And I’m not just talking about being kind to animals, and alleviating their suffering.   I’m talking being kind to each other. Where can you be generous of spirit? Where can you be kind? Are you treating people the way you want to be treated yourself?

Lately I’ve seen both behaviours – beautiful kindnesses as well as shocking, hurtful behaviours and dreadful mean-spiritedness, lies, dishonesty and betrayals.

From the number of light workers who have suddenly written about the need for integrity, it seems this is across the board.

One of the things we need to understand that those behaviours belong to people who are still acting in an old 3D way. It is painful and hurtful to see and to be a part of that, but you can remove yourself from it by letting go the people who are still stuck. And understanding, with compassion, that they have not yet evolved.  So it is, in my humble opinion, rather pointless to engage.  You can set the standard, but people see themselves through their own eyes and they don’t like to be made wrong — unless they are aspirational and willing to shift upwards. And do the work it takes.

Each soul is on a journey and it is everyone’s choice to create more karma if they want.

What is happening right now is that people’s shadows are activated. People are sucked up in a backwash of negativity and swirling around as a group negative force.

But we are being asked to heal, not hurt. We are being asked to help, not hate.

We are asked to stand by our codes of conduct and be the best human being we can be.

So, while so many are caught in the grip of shadow, remember to practise responding not reacting, and the art of non-engagement. In martial arts, you learn to dance out of the way of the blows. It is something Andrew and I also teach in our improv comedy classes. When there is no energy to fight against, the energy drops. That’s when true communication can begin.

Navigating the Heavy Waters

The energies of the moment are very high and it is purely our choice as to how we walk in them. It can be very lonely and difficult to navigate through these heavy waters of the dark backlash, and I have been contacted by more than one person who is sitting alone, wondering if life is worth living.

One of the things that I tell them is of course it is, and it will get better.

We have to continue to be kind to others. We are all the same under the skin. Who knows what people are going through at home? One unkind act might send someone over the edge. At this time on the planet, people are fragile.

The other thing I tell them is to remember that what we are going through right now is like a war between negativity and positivity. We are heading toward the golden sand of peace and unity, but there are land mines. That might not be the best analogy, but it does seem to feel like a war when all your stuff is up in your face for healing and release. It’s a long, dark night of the soul and anyone who tells you it isn’t, hasn’t been shedding their skin.

I also mention they are not alone in what they are feeling, and this is the most empowering thing of all. If you are feeling the dark oppression like a majorly bleak depression, join a club of fellow travellers.   It is part of the dying process — the death of the old.   And I have spoken about this before  Sooooo many people are going through it, or have been through it,  The trick is to keep reaching for the light and the hope. To turn within, contact spirit, and find joy in the moments.  There are many, many people walking this wilderness trail. My sense is that it is the wayshowers that make the trail, making the path easier for the rest of humanity to follow.

So keep up the good work. We are in this together and we chose to be the wayshowers.

The choice we have is how we shed our skins. We can get sucked into the drama of it. Or we can laugh about it. Sometimes it takes until the shock has worn off, and you have worked out an appropriate response to the new challenge, but then you can laugh.

And laughter is a transformer.

The quicker you can laugh about it the better. In my school Rainbow Fianna, I teach about the anam cara – the soul friend. They are the ones you bear your heart to, and instead of colluding, they hold up the light so you can better see your path.

Throwing Back Love

When life or humans throw you a curve ball, throw back Love. Truly it is the only thing to do.  Sit in the middle of the High Road, and practise emotional mastery.  Because hate and abuse only ever perpetuates a problem and continues the cycle.

It is also a time to nurture the self. It is a time to be kind to self. We are going through a metamorphosis like warp speed now, and if you stay in the old ways of doing things, the path could get bumpy.  This is a difficult bridge to transit right now, but keep meditating and listening to spirit’s wisdom.

Spirit is within.

Energy Alert:

People have been reporting headaches and foggy brains, losing time, not sleeping, the continuing waves of vertigo. I’ve been seeing the Otherworld as if the veil is so transparent it is practically not there. I also feel out of my body and am conscious of a need to ground – this is not common for me as I live on a farm and do daily work outside with animals and nature. But I barely feel here.  Very light.

I also have an unsettling feeling of the need to get all my affairs in order. I no longer feel the same old passions and I don’t think it is fatigue.  I just feel detached from the old, 3D world.

I can’t and won’t tolerate any pictures or acts of unkindness, I can’t stand the sight of the newspaper or the news — my sensitivity has gone through the roof, and really, the only thing I want to focus on right now is my spiritual path, and the art of living well. Simple things, like carving out time for family and true friends. Spending more down time with animals and trees. The more I think about the old world, the more intense and crazy it seems. It is a very odd feeling of floating away, of not being of the world as we know it.

Sadly it is not yet possible to step fully into the new, as there are those things called bills and other challenges that pull you back into a 3D reality. And the 3D reality is the most challenging it has ever been. It is a world imploding.  Deal with whatever comes at you with grace, acceptance, surrender and appropriate action, and keep opening yourself to the new. It’s like cleaning your house and getting it ready for sale. Clean your life up, get ready to leave the old, and step on the shores of the new as it arrives in your field.

Do take care of the people around you. The old way is to trash loyalty and friendship, leaving karma in your wake. Do that and you may find the doors to the New Earth closed to you.

The New Earth has to be peopled by people who behave like New Humans – because they are New Humans, and New Humans are kind and don’t hurt people by their actions.  They are conscious and loving, humble and wise.

We’re in November. Any minute now it will be 2014. And there is a lot more change coming. When you surrender and learn to let go of the wheel, you might find your Higher Self taking over at the helm, and taking you to safe shores.

Take time to listen and to act on those small whispers from Spirit. Watch who is in your life, and who is walking out. It is just a revolving door. Let go your attachments. This is what spiritual masters have been telling us all for years. The river of life is so much easier to wade through when you listen to the heart and not to the head.

Astrologically we’ve been hammered by solar storms, and every full moon is a huge one which seems to suck away souls to the Other Side. These days I feel so battered by loss that I am viewing full moons with half dread and that is not the place I want to be in. It comes back to acceptance and knowing that souls all have their own journey, no matter how much we love them.

Comet ISON

Astrologically, the big news is Comet Ison , a comet the size of Australia who might or might not survive a meeting with the sun. Metaphysically all the planets and solar flares and comets are lining up like proud parents to give us all the help we need to evolve. Comet Ison is no exception.

Here’s what my friend Anda Li Whitman has to say about Comet ISON

On November 28th, Thanksgiving day in the USA, the comet conjuncts our Sun within 1 degree. It will appear brighter than Venus, and be visible in the twilight sky at 35 deg North latitude in the ESE. It will be photographed, so we’ll all be able to witness the event virtually at some point.

Also on the 28th, The Sun in Sagittarius conjuncts Mercury aspecting the Moon in Libra which is Sextile the Sun. This symbolically portends higher philosophy becoming the undeniable focus for the social-emotions of all on Earth. Who is the ‘other’: it is ourselves.

ISON then passes behind the Sun, to re-emerge on the 29th. What’s left of it. It may be absorbed by the Sun; we shall see. At perihelion it is only 730,000 miles from the Sun’s surface.

The symbolism of this event is poignantly immense. When the comet commemorated in the Bayeux tapestry, thought by astronomers to be Halley’s comet, flew past England in the late 11th Century, the world was changed forever. The social order changed, and European civilization expanded into the Renaissance and Age of Enlightenment.

In our times, the re-emerging of the Divine Feminine and the expansion of Christ Consciousness globally is and has been occurring. This week’s event is a milestone along the way to our inner liberation from the status quo, dominant paradigm.

The ‘second coming’ is an internal shift in awareness.

As a civilization we are coming out of the galactic and spiritual shadows. Rejoice, this is a momentous Thanksgiving event.

And finally…

If you are an American, please consider sparing a turkey’s life this Thanksgiving. They will be truly grateful.
