The Dragon and the Dolphin
For the Universal
Festival Calendar, this is one of those months when
it seems that only the key of the music, but not
the tune itself, has changed since a year ago. From
the Calendar of July, 2002:
this morning (June 28) Michael Doonesbury and his daughter
are still engaged in the Business section of the
newspaper, which she calls the Crime Page; a cartoon
appeared this morning showing a stuffed dummy in
the company president's chair, and on his desk a "So long,
Suckers!" note to the workers who enter his
office to discover the $10 million golden parachute
gone from the safe, and the painting by Renoir left
behind. If it is not evident by now that a post-capitalist
economy, whatever we call it, is beginning to evolve,
one wonders what signals will be needed to convey
the point. Under normal conditions, profiteers
and exploiters will milk the cash cow for as long
as they can, but when they begin to cut up the cow
leaving loyal employees and investors holding only
a picture of a cow and a huge bag of debt, then
it is obvious that
while we may not be sure about what the future will
bring, we do know what's already disappearing from
the present: the old, controlling corporate paradigm,
based on hierarchy, exclusivity and secrecy, with
no responsibility in theory to anyone but shareholders,
and now no responsibility in fact to anyone except
the robber baron's own money launderer, travel agent,
bookie and bodyguard.
"It becomes more evident
each month that the old Piscean economy, with corporate officers
and directors at the top allowing some money to trickle down to
the lower orders below, has reached its most dysfunctional point
in history. The Aquarian economy, in which like-minded friends
form teams that create products and services for communities,
is evolving as we write and read this."
But now, in
July 2003, it only seems -- most of all to minds
fixated on the entertainment value of events --
that nothing is really changing. It may even seem
that the planet is regressing into deeper ignorance
and violence. The actuality is that while certain
overpublicized human beings are hitting their dark
and bloody beats as loud and heavy as they can,
the majority of human beings are awakening in the
mind, and opening in the heart. Spiritual change
is accelerating, and occurring on a wider scale.
This is why the main opening business for this month
is a strategic look at the coming time terrain.
We will look at two medium-range time frames: the
Whole Show, from 1999 to 2012; and the Sunrise Scene
of November, 2003:
The Whole Show: The Coming
of Age Ceremony, 1999 - 2012:
The large time
unit that we are now crossing, at least by our current
understanding, is the 25-year period from the Harmonic
Convergence of August 17, 1987 through the End of
Time on Dec. 21, 2012. We are now in the second
half, the 13-year Coming of Age Ceremony, that began
in May, 1999 and climaxes in 2012. The 13 years
have these four phases:
1999- 2002 Birth.
From the Taurus Stellium, or Grand Planetary Alignment,
of May 3 -5, 1999, through the end of 2002.
This phase is the emergence of the energies that
were seeded nine months before May 1999, in the
two Grand Cross alignments of August, 1998. The
second of these Grand Crosses, on August 17, 1998,
was eleven years to the day from the Harmonic Convergence
of August 17, 1987. The Birth phase culminates outwardly
in the World Trade Center attack of 2001 and the
Robots' Revenge campaign of 2001 - 2002.
2003 - 2006 Awakening.
This phase does not consist of a gradual yawn, purr
and stretch in the general direction of morning,
but flashes instead in a kind of strobe pattern,
each flash a burst of suddenly increased awareness
among larger numbers of human beings. Some of the
flashes also entail dramatic gestures of recognition
and solidarity among those who know that not only
are they awakening. but everyone else is too. A
major moment of light opportunity is coming in
November of 2003. More on this soon.
2007 - 2009: Glamor.
This is the inevitable reaction to the Awakening
by those who perceive the Earth only as a material
object, and wish to hold control of her by keeping
humanity cooled and fooled. This phase will demonsrate
the genius-level superiority of the emerging American
police state over the cruder Nazi and Soviet models
that kept their people icy with fear, and did not
yet see that it's far more effective and profitable
to keep people helplessly hot and giddy with fun, paying handsomely
to be entertained into a continual and easily controllable
stupor. Glamorous illusion will go extreme in the desperate and dazzling eye candy and musical
boom that shake the floor now. Even disco could
revive under this lighting.
2010 - 2012 Liberation and Transformation.
More of this on the 2012
page, and in the new material the author is assembling
now, and will present between now and November.
Our current sequence
of three phases, beginning with the Awakening phase
we are in now, will inevitably be perceived by fear-held
people as a three act drama of Action, Reaction
and Resolution, or as Positive, Negative and Unified
Energies. It must be so as we come to the end of
the third density of opposition and apparent conflict.
The Kabbalah says, "Rhythm is the basis of life, not steady forward progress. The forces of
creation, destruction, and preservation have a whirling, dynamic
The Sunrise Scene of November,
On Nov. 8,
six planets will form a Star of David or hexagon
pattern that will be the most auspicious and love-charged
alignment since May of 1999. This year's Star of
David will be, among other things, a large and clear
window of opportunity for human awakening.
The main prelude piece to this grand event in November is the brilliant position of Mars in the coming months. As Mars moves this summer to the side of Earth opposite the Sun, he will grow brighter than he has been, in NASA's estimation, in 73,000 years. As we shall see in the weeks to come, Mars will not grow a deeper blood red, but will glow an orange-yellow like the Sun, thus announcing that his best energies of service, protectiveness, cooperation and mercy are available from now to November. This is an excellent time for the advancing of awakened ideas, even to audiences that had seemed hopelessly deaf, on matters of masculine imagery and military force. This year awakened beings help awakening soldiers work for peace.
They all perceive that love, strongly awakened and directed, will overcome the Dragon. As shown here by Raphael in his typical Western image -- note that in the Asian tradition he is a very different symbol of divine energy and power, a magical being who pursues the pearl of truth, and is the emblem of the Chinese nation -- the Dragon is a huge reptilian who won't let anyone near the gold, which the Dragon can't spend, and the girl, whom he can't love. He gets his kick of empowerment from denying others what they want -- but he creates nothing, least of all new dragons. Ever heard of a Mom and Pop Dragon bringing up a bunch of dragaroos and dragonettes? Neither has anybody else. The Dragon is solitary because he is armored against love.
His energy is blocked in the solar plexus domain of fear and courage, and has not accelerated into the love frequency of the heart. Since the Dragon has all these unsexy qualities, how, then, does he reproduce? He doesn't. He can go one of two ways: the usual death by St. George or Siegfried or the Archangel Michael, with the Dragon's blood entering the soil like seeds and waiting to become another Dragon -- this is why killing the Dragon never gets rid of him, but brings only a change of costume. Or the Dragon can go the other way: the new Aquarian route of transformation into a being of love, even one as happy as a dolphin. The Dragon will not move toward this willingly, and therefore must be liberated by the love of others.
One need not
be Jung or Campbell to see that the sword or lance
of the Dragon-killer is a straight line of action
that represents the penetrating power of masculine
intellect, which by itself can never free the Dragon,
but can only confine or kill him for now. What is
needed to transform the Dragon into a love being
is not a blade or a spear or a bomb. It's the force
of love. We are now or soon will be able, for the
first time in Earth's history, to link the concerted
intentions of awakened and loving beings in order
to send love to the Dragon, and liberate him. It
is useful to remember that it's best not to focus
the love beam right at the heart. This is the knight's
point of attack, and it's ready to bleed and reseed.
The Dragon's weakness is the point on his body that
is behind the heart, not in front of it. For a Dragon,
as well as for a human, the back door of the heart
is the point of attack. Aim well. Keep holding that
