Philosophy for a Happy Life: Sam Berns

I'm still in my funk ... sort of ... at least I'm posting something for the first time in a week ... and I did pick up a book the other day (that I've had for several years) called Praying In Color which them prompted me to pick up colored markers and pencils and begin to Doodle/Pray.

I still need to add some finishing touches but here's my newest Doodle ...


I recently subscribed to Evolution Ezine and in today's email (with subject line of Most Important Time in History) I discovered a number of fascinating stories. One in particular was extremely moving and compelled me to share it ... There is a video but I couldn't get myself to share that ...

I felt like I needed to add a comment of my own. What I referred to as my “Funk” has really not been a funk at all … It’s just been the 7 days leading up to the New Moon …

Last Thurs. PM I listened to a Pisces New Moon teleclass presented by my friend and teacher, Michele Grace Lessirard.

And what she made very clear was that New Moon energy is like the dark night … Whatever shadow issues we have that need attention and healing will come up for clearing. Ergo, I have been feeling very tired … unmotivated … depressed …

As Michele says, “How are you being called to speak your truth and die to the old way to be born anew?”

Michele’s mentor Sandra Ingerman has put it this way:

“Collective humanity is entering into the next phase of an initiation process. An initiation does create a death of an old way of living. And with all the intense change occurring I do not believe that we can sleep through this next phase of initiation.”
