Our first association with advice came from parents and teachers; well-intentioned people who are at least one generation away from us. Parental advice says, “Do what I say, not I what I do.” It says, “Be careful. Be safe. Don’t get hurt.”
Question: I really enjoy good food and I think that eating is a joy. I also enjoy listening to cultural music, designing and wearing colorful clothing, and painting provocative art. I have heard that in the near future we will feed ourselves through the solar waves of our local sun, lose our hair, and even wear the same garment. I can see how this might simplify things considerably, but why would our evolution require us to abandon customs that are unique to Earth? Isn't the earth exceptionally precious as it is, diversity and all?
Dear Readers, It feels to most of us that earth changes are increasing in both frequency and magnitude, and yet Gaia says that they are not. She tells us that our interest in 2012 related change has made it seem that way, and that our newer technologies allow many more of us to share similar thoughts at similar times. Gaia goes on to say that this will begin to work in our favor as soon as we align with the kinds of things we want to change instead of the change we think is affecting our kind...

Winter Solstice is the birth of the new solar year and is symbolized by the dark, or midnight sun. The midnight solstice aligns the world of humanity with the world of the eternal, joining both in a sacred union that repeats each year at the same time.
The surface of the earth bears certain scars, witness to events of
major historic perspective. Beautiful canyons, rivers and lakes erase,
or least hide, evidence of massive and unexpected devastation.
Likewise, deserts lie naked and exposed, unclothed and unable to mask
the corruption that changed verdant green resources into dry sand.
History has also left scars behind where wars have changed the course
of events, and monuments now stand in place of men.
Self-discovery is a journey whose only measure is the amount of times one meets oneself along the way. It is an adventure whose purpose is the journey itself. If one fears to venture forward or inward the trail becomes steeper and the request more insistent. Failure to answer such a call leads to the wilderness within rather than the wonders of the outer world. Ignorance of Spirit's need and desire to journey can lead to the illness of the body and partial or complete corruption of the sensitivities.
