I had a powerful Winter Solstice and a Merry Christmas. My brother and I spent Christmas night outside under the stars. We had a couple big blankets, some white sage burning, and some shaman shakers from South America. It was cold to the bone, but in the trance we could generate warmth from within. The lesson to me was the deeper meaning of the Tolemac Symbol.
We are in the middle of a cataclysm. A revolution, an evolution, and a paradigm is on its way out. History of man is filled with continuing evolutions. Things change, that's all there is to it. It is a continuous function that is always changing. back in the 1860's the black man was winning their freedom in the western world. Then in the 1960's women were fighting for their rights. Now in the 2010's homosexuals are fighting for equality and acceptance.
The thing about changing paradigms is they never change without a fight. There will always be resistance. The media is heavy with coverage. Everything from the Duck Dynasty Scandal to the Pastor being defrocked for officiating his gay son's marriage.
