Day 9 – The Water’s Edge

Water's Edge

“Water’s Edge,” watercolor and pencil on paper, by Mary Gow

I went to a talk given by Jessica Murray last week about the unique times we are currently experiencing.

I’m still thinking about it.

I hadn’t heard the term “ecocide” before and it caught my attention as she said it’s a possibility that we are committing it.

Is resorting to physical battles a sign of “spiritual immaturity”?

These were a two of the points Jessica Murray touched on. She is an astrologer, cultural commentator, and author of Soul Sick Nation: An Astrologer’s View of America, and her new book, At the Crossroads: An Astrologer Looks at These Turbulent Times.

It wasn’t doomsday predictions but encouragement to remember our power is in our participation as a collective.

Her talk reminded me of the Pachamama Alliance. Their “Four Years Go” video created in 2010 shows in three minutes the underlying message of this post.

Awaken to Your Dream!

Can you get in touch with your big audacious dream in less than two decades? Two years? Two months? Two days? How about two hours?

I didn’t think it was possible and I was wrong. Recently I attended an Awaken the Dreamer Changing the Dream symposium, at the Red Vic B&B and Peace Center on Haight Street in San Francisco. The event was lead by educator, painter and writer, Laurie Marshall, founder of Unity Through Creativity. Among those present in the audience was artist and founder of the Red Vic, Sami Sunchild, and Betty Kissilove, author of Great Ball of Fire!, a beautiful book about how the Universe came into existence.

We sat in a circle as we watched short videos and were lead through short thought-provoking exercises. The evening was sponsored by the Pachamama Alliance (“PA”).

I left with a feeling blessed unrest.

Go to to find the shortest route to how you can change the course of history!
