Blood moon and Mars encounter brings in a new dawn.

“Each time dawn appears, the mystery is there in its entirety.”  Rene Daumal

On the morning of 28 July 2018, myself, and lucky observers around the globe, witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime meeting in the sky: the longest “blood moon” eclipse of the 21st century, flanked by a big, brilliant Mars as it heads toward its closest approach to Earth since 2003.

Mars and blood moon 28 July 2018

 

I especially enjoyed watching the lunar eclipse, as the atmosphere was really ‘still’ and quiet. This silence pervaded all, as the eclipse slowly unfolded within the night.

As the moon turned blood red and was in darkness, a kookaburra broke the silence and announced a new dawn, as the moon slowly began to brighten again, and a new day dawned.

The look of love

 

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” -Maya Angelou

Heart’s Dream

 

( Dedicated to the love that unites us all)

 

Before we can return to the light from whence we came,

We must come to terms with the instinctive flow of the universe.

 

heart

 

Surf, surf, the waves of life,

up, down, up, down,

swirl in, swirl out, swoosh.

Rip curl, surfing hollow tubes,

tunnel of water flows around me,

I see light all ‘round me.

What an adventure,

a journey through space,

we are time travelers warped by vibration.

In, out, in, out,

up, down, up, down,

wind rides my body,

Fire in my heart!

 

As morning broke, I lay on the soft green grass in my garden,

Naked under an azure sky, thinking of you,

My Mother of my physicality, Heart of the Earth.

Together, we emote in lovers’ embrace, beloved song of my Heart.

Deep down, I feel your grief, your loss, your suffering, caused by us.

 The ocean and land is dying, the ozone is being depleted, the mass extinction of

Animals and plants, that can never be replaced.

This torments and saddens me, so deeply, intensely and intimately.

I hurt, my heart breaks, and I cry deep tears of sorrow and loss :(…

I also feel your joy and celebration, and know that you feel me too.

With body pressed heavily to Earth, I feel, that,

 this is the purpose of our physicality.

Our ruby lips joined in sensuality,

our presence in the moment.

Together we embrace the passing of time,

Experiencing nature’s ebb and flow, as seasons come and go.

 In this I am most grateful and thankful to you. I love you <3.

Heart love by Bridget Cameron

 

Am I a flower in a field of weeds, or a weed in a field of flowers?

Or, am I just growing towards the light like everybody else?

 

We come with love and joy in our Hearts, to this Earth,

So often a place of pain, disappointment and suffering.

We feel the full gamut of emotions, the love, the joy,

 The trauma, the agony and the fragility of our mortality.

We come to learn, to experience, to grieve, to let go of,

This beautiful Life, such Grace,

This painful World, such Tragedy.

Within the paradox I embraced the hope that grief gives us. That is,

The wonder, the magnificence, the miracle of life!

Life that is given to us from the death of stars, for

We are made from the elements created from the heart of dying stars!

And, the recognition that we are more than just flesh,

United we are, within the heart beat that connects everything,

To the threads of consciousness that ignites the cosmic breath.

 

For, when our final curtain closes,

our elements are recycled back to the Earth, and

our consciousness back to the eternal hum,

as we embrace our new Heart’s Dream journey,

upon the waves of love. It is, love without end… amour sans fin…

Australian garden orb weaver spider (Eriophora transmarina) and full moon

I’ve always been fascinated by the symbolism of spiders as master weavers of  destinies, and language, and the similarity of stories between different nations.  She is often called the mother of language and a great storyteller as she weaves her language upon her loom.

Spider’s web is akin to a mandala, the Sanskrit meaning of mandala is circle. The circle is a symbol of perfection, eternity, unity and completeness, and the mandala  is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the universe. In Hindu and Buddhist traditions, the centre represents the beginning point of contemplation of and devotion to the divine.

Creating mandalas help the focusing of attention of practitioners and adepts, and as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space, as an aid to meditation and trance induction. In ancient Greek and Roman traditions this central point often signified the self, as it is in Jungian psychology too. It is always at the centre in which we find our calm, and heart- centred sacred space!

Sri Yantra mandala

Spiders have the extraordinary capability of creating, weaving and spinning their own webs. This ability shows and teaches us the gift of creation. We have the power to create what happens in our lives, to us and to others, by the choices we make. Consequently, we create our own reality according to our thoughts, feelings, actions, and reactions, and we make an impact upon the world and universe through our presence.

Existentially, the connection between spider and her web and the cosmos too, is intrinsically and extrinsically linked, as we are all connected through the heartfelt strings of love, the filaments of cosmic web.  They help remind us of our inter-connectedness to all life! Spider is thus, the cosmic weaver, in a cosmic web of universal galaxies. Awesome!  🙂 ❤

Feasting Bee

I was observing the layers of flowers,

within a newly headed rosette bloom,

when I chanced upon a bee feasting,

and dance upon the blooms.

Her  labor was a tune , bzzz bzzz,

her idleness a boon, and

collecting all that nectar

was a joyful thing to do.  🙂

Gently swaying in the breeze,

Your faces follow the warm sunlight.

With bright pink sparkled sepals you please,

You are a magnificent sight!

You are a feast to my eyes that you feed,

And, you fill my heart with wondrous delight.

Your simplicity and fragility are rare indeed,

And, to care and protect you is absolutely right!

Thank you sweet orchids for your beauty and ease,

You are certainly a pleasure, it is your birthright…

I love galahs!

” When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.”  Anthony Douglas Williams.

proud-cocky-sfe-by-brdget-cameron

The galah (Eolophus roseicapilla) also known as the rose-breasted cockatoo.

I heard a familiar  ‘wuaaaaaaawk’, and looked out my bedroom window and watched quietly as a couple of galahs rested in the tall blue gum tree in my front garden. They knew that I was there, and for a while quietly observed me :).

i-can-see-you-sfe-by-bridget-cameron

They apparently didn’t mind my intrusion and before long they continued with their antics, hanging upside down, feeding, playing and munching on wood.

superb-cocky-sfe-by-bridget-cameron

The term galah is derived from gilaa, a word found in Yuwaalaraay and neighbouring Aboriginal languages, and colloquially we call them ‘cockies’.

It was utterly captivating and delightful watching them and I felt most privileged and blessed as they had allowed me into their precious lives, and hearts. 🙂 ❤

Into the Night

Into the Night

As darkening peachy clouds mourn their day’s goodbye,

and Venus our ‘evening star’ shines her light into the Sky,

as the slowly rising moon bathes us in soft luminescence, we sigh,

and watch her move slowly, way, way, up high,

as we surrender silently to the day that has passed us by,

and go boldly into the night, aye!

Peace on the Eve of 2017

As we say goodbye to 2016,  and welcome in 2017, this is a good time to stop and relax and reflect upon the year in passing, and to find the calm and silence within.

To be as still and calm as this tranquil lake, brings peace and awareness, as still waters run deep. I feel grateful to have experienced natures’ bounties on this the Eve of 2017!

I send much love and peace for 2017. May we all find calm and places of great beauty. Blessings to all, Bridget 🙂 ❤

Let’s create a better world together!

christmas-st-pius

Children dressed up for a Nativity Play at a local school. Children still have hope, let’s not take it away from them! 🙂

I write this in response to many friends who are appalled at Donald Trumps victory in becoming President elect of the United States of America, and fear what will happen in 2017 when he takes the reigns!

Please don’t feed into the negativity and hate, as you will only give power to him and the parasites that are only interested in themselves and the power and wealth that they can gain from others suffering!  Instead focus on love and togetherness, and work together for good outcomes! Many great things happen by ordinary people, focus on these good deeds!

I’m sorry to say Americans, that this election outcome has been coming to the USA for a long time! The electorate get what they deserve, unfortunately! We reap what we sow…Americans have been living in an illusionary ‘me first’, ‘Americans are best’, ‘we are the most military powerful nation in the world’, ‘us versus them’, and ‘over the top Nationalism’ ethos and mentality for a long time! The fact is America is not number one, China is more economic and plays a more important role globally, and we are One World!

This election has proved that America is a divided nation, with much poverty, racism, inadequate housing to many, inequality, huge demarcations between the wealthy and poor, a struggling education system and a pitiful health system which denies many the right to good health; although Obama tried hard to rectify this! I add here, that this is not only true in America!

Donald Trump managed to get ‘non-voters’ voting, by telling these disenfranchised groups what they wanted to hear! Why isn’t it compulsory to vote in the USA? It’s a shame that so many are ignorant and naively follow a business man with no conscience, and on the ‘war path’, yet the majority are ‘sheep’ buy into ‘fear tactics’ and ‘rhetoric’ and are easily led to the slaughter house! It’s the shadow government, the media, a handful of wealthy families and a handful of banks that ‘run the show’, and Presidents are merely puppets!

We live in times when the world is becoming more fascist, and many of the same elements are in play as prior to WW11! It is only through a collective effort, that we can rise from the trash and embrace a ‘wholistc/holistic’ and ‘collective We’, where we can override the negativity and fear, winner/loser mentality and rise from our collective ashes into a phoenix directed by love! Do we really need leaders that act merely as puppets to the powers that control them? Why are there so many secrets? We must govern ourselves, know and embrace our own ‘power’, then we will choose the best candidates for serving the public!

We must continue to live in our ‘hearts’ and to question the ‘powers that be’ and to question what we read and see in the media, as the majority is  biased, and rhetoric aimed to put fear into the public (that is why horrific stories are repeated over and over again) and we must work together for peace, what is right and humanly possible! There needs to be a change in our Keynesian economics- which does not work in the 21st century- and perhaps never did, as the Earth has finite resources which rules out perpetual growth!

There is definitely ‘power in numbers’, and there is much to gain from positive values! We, together create the reality we perceive and create here on Earth, and it is up to us to dream and create a better dream and reality! Let’s create a better World together!  Let’s do it for our children!  Bridget Cameron

Little things matter

Cabbage White Butterfly (Pieris rapae) drinks nectar from onion weed.

How often do we dismiss the ‘little things’, especially if they are common?  In our busy lives, we often forget to ‘stop and to smell the flowers’.  It’s a shame, because there is so much intricate and delicate beauty in the smallest life, and this vulnerability deserves respect!

I went for a walk along a local creek, and found a shady spot to listen to bird and insect choruses. It was here, that I watched this butterfly dance and feed upon the flowers. It was such simple delight!  🙂  ❤

Sun meditation

“A mind that is calm, without hesitation and anticipation is meditation.  Sri Sri

Much life exists on our planet because of the sun. Worshipping the sun has been a daily practice in many cultures, for thousands of years. Sun salutations is very auspicious and good for the body and the mind. The sages and preceptors have advised us to meditate during the morning and evening.
