Sit down before fact like a little child, and be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abyss Nature leads, or you shall learn nothing. —T. H. Huxley
Every cell in our body enfolds the entire cosmos. So does every leaf, every raindrop, and every dust mote, which gives new meaning to William Blake’s famous poem:
To see a World in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour.
Dreams and daily thoughts on the perception of reality; is after all our very own seasoned views in a hologram state of mind.
What IF Everything is a hologram ? Just a projection of our Universal reality.
Thinking about the Nasa Christmas lightshow that no one has mentioned in any way. Did anyone see it ?
Was it Nasa’s very own Hologram?
The strangest version of all parallel universe proposals is one that emerged gradually over 30 years of theoretical studies on the quantum properties of black holes. The work culminated in the last decade, and it suggests, remarkably, that all we experience is nothing but a holographic projection of processes taking place on some distant surface that surrounds us.
You can pinch yourself, and what you feel will be real, but it mirrors a parallel process taking place in a different, distant reality.
Movies and other media associated with Holographic themes:
Among the more easily recognized are The Matrix (Illusion)
I woke this morning with the desire to organize. That does not happen very often. I think it stems from not being able to find things where I swear I put them.
I believe these little elves or magical fairies like to move things around and watch us go craze looking for them.
First the maze under the kitchen sink. It is mind-boggling what I have put there. Seemed like a great place at the time. Then there is the space under the bathroom sink…I found a pair of my favorite shoes there yesterday; that the cat decided she liked to chew on.
One time I found my keys in the cat can bag and the cat food in the freezer. Not to mention the time I made coffee with bird seed instead of coffee. That’s called doing too many things at the same time. I think I am an octopus 🙂
I have two of a lot of things because if I seriously can not find something I go to Walgreen’s or K Mart and replace so-called lost item. No sooner I get home, there is lost item right where I put it last. My kitchen looks like Noah’s Ark. One lost and one found.
Then of course I blame my cat China on many things. She likes to drag things around and hides them very well. She removes items from my purse…jumps on top of the fridge…finds things and puts them where she can find them.
Then there is Spring cleaning. You know ,the time has come to get rid of the clothes that you will never fit in again. Favorite sentimental mementos that have lost there meaning along with the men that gave them too you. I must make a list as I go about trashing these things. It will save moments looking for them on another day.
I always say “But, I couldn’t have gotten rid of that…what was I thinking ?” Evidently,I was thinking how much I hated the person at the time, or how much it reminded me of something that did not resonate with me. One time I threw a pain prescription out by accident. I took my little step chair to the dumpster, propped it up and climbed on in. I retrieved the prescription and proceeded to be so excited I left the brand new step chair leaning up against the dumpster. Later, I decided to hang some curtains and couldn’t find the step chair. By the time I back tracked it was gone, and was most likely sitting pretty in someone else’s house. I guess they wondered why anyone would throw out such a nice step stool.
My mama had the habit of hiding money behind bricks in the fireplace. She could never remember which brick.
That’s the problem with a good hiding space, it is so good you can’t even find it.
I need a drink ,now where did I put that book ???
Clutter,Clutter Barrel and Blunder
How do you materialize?
Seems you grow from such small corners
Spaced out places in my mind
Hidden,no longer seen
Covered in dust bunnies and cobwebs
Remnants of moments in time
Today is the Day…Time to go…no time to whine
“The shadow exists within all of us. It is a part of us and yet we spend most of our life running from it. But far from being scary, our dark side holds the promise of a better, more fulfilling life. Our shadow makes itself known every day. It is the reason we get furious over a friend showing up ten minutes late, yell at our parents or kids when they have done nothing wrong, and sabotage our own success at the worst possible time. Until we are able to embrace our dualistic nature, we will continue to hurt ourselves and those closest to us and fall short of our potential.
I believe that the shadow is one of the greatest gifts available to us. Carl Jung called it a “sparring partner”; it is the opponent within us that exposes our ﬂaws and sharpens our skills. It is the teacher, the trainer, and the guide that supports us in uncovering our true magnificence. The shadow is not a problem to be solved or an enemy to be conquered but a fertile ﬁeld to be cultivated. When we dig our hands into its rich soil, we will discover the potent seeds of the people we most desire to be. It is our sincere hope that you take this journey, for we know what’s waiting inside.”
There is no one in the world who doesn’t have a shadow, and when taken seriously and understood, the shadow can birth a new reality that will alter the way we feel about ourselves, the way we parent our children, the way we treat our partners, the way we interact with our community members, and the way we engage with other nations.
Whenever I did something that I knew was wrong or hurtful to someone, I felt my shadow side was getting the best of me. You know the angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other,having their little sparring match.
It was easy to say I was sorry,that it was my shadow and I allowed it to infringe on someone else’s parade.
Easy to blame the shadow…right ???
The best scenario would be not needing the excuse.It was The darkness,my evil twin; my shadow side controlling me.
Truth is,we all have that shadow side. Some have it worse than others and that is why there is so much evil, murder and corruption in our world.
They do not have coping skills,nor any answers. They strike without provocation at times, other times they willfully plan and take there good old-time wrecking havoc on other’s lives.
I believe it is true that individuals need to be aware of this darkness. They need to face it, acknowledge that it is a real force to be dealt with.
They should never defend it, that just makes it stronger. They need to honor it and know that it is only in darkness that light can be seen.
Even with the light they may stumble. A person walking into a dark space knows there are adjustments that their eyes make to allow them too see more clearly.
Perception and Reality, the concept of what is the reality of your perception ?
You are in charge of the story, your life.
“Everything you see or hear or experience in any way at all is specific to you. You create a universe by perceiving it, so everything in the universe you perceive is specific to you.” – Douglas Adams
The South Node here has great gold in its shadowy inheritance~we missed the basic course in ethics,compassion and fairness.
I guess it’s the quest I am on to find out after 63 years young what IT IS that makes me tick like the energized bunny…I just keep going and going.
You will probably have to make some major changes—like letting one relationship die so that you can have room in your life for a new better one~or you may have to tell your friend that what she/he did was unconscionable and that you’ve had enough.
The Scorpio woman will be faithful and devote all her life to her man, and her partner will be a happy man. If he would undermine her trust with lies or cheating – then she will erase him from the face of the earth, and will do this just as passionately as she loved him.
Finally, the day will come when you have learned from the experience, when you no longer blame yourself or feel stupid, when you do not feel compelled to fix the other person or make him see that what he or she did was wrong, when you accept that that person is who that person is—then you are in the last stage of healing: forgiveness and letting go.
My North Node is Taurus in the 3 rd House
South Node in Scorpio
You are intense. Everything is a big deal, life or-death. You struggle with life, trying to get your needs met. Primary among those is your need for connection, for intimacy. You feel comfortable and secure when you have somebody. You want to share everything, holding nothing back. You expect, you need the same in return. You get uncomfortable when someone doesn’t need you as much as you need them.
Your greatest fear is losing what you have; your obsession is getting what you lack.
North Node in Taurus
You are learning to relax. You are discovering that this is truly an abundant Universe. As long as you have yourself, you’re alright, you’ll be alright. And that’s the key – learning to trust yourself, depend on yourself, BE yourself. From your old sharing perspective, you may seem a little selfish – so focused on what you want. However, because you’re no longer so fearful of going without, you find yourself becoming much more generous. You are stabilizing, solidifying, shifting from emotional turmoil to sensory enjoyment.
With North Node in Taurus, our South Node is in Scorpio.
With North Node in the third house, our South Node is in the eighth house
A tendency to define our own worth and values in terms of our significant others, to be wrapped up in the needs of others at the expense of our own needs, and to attract confusing and intense life situations at the expense of comfort and peace are some of the issues this position suggests. With this position, we need to discover our own values, to depend on ourselves and to establish our self-worth through our own efforts, and to enjoy life’s more serene moments without the unconscious need to create crises. We may invest too much time and energy into supporting others at the expense of our own comfort and needs.
We cannot develop our self-worth through others alone—it needs to come from within. Learning to define our goals based on our own values, and then to work toward achieving them in a patient manner, will help us achieve more happiness and inner balance.
Relax. Take a big deep breath. Exhale. Smell the grass. Soak in the evening sun. Relax. Take another full breath. Relax. Watch the sun slowly set. Get ready for a fine dinner. Relax. Breathe in and out.

No other human is more capable of living in the moment than the NN Taurus. She has no desire to leave the reality she’s in. It’s exactly right. It contains everything she wants. Even if the imagination wanders off to foreign dimensions, her body is content to be where it is, and awaits her mind’s return with eagerness. Dinner is ahead, perhaps a hot bath, a slick shiny magazine, some jazzy love songs, or some delicious conversation on the Internet. So many possibilities, so much to do.
She is entirely self supporting and has the leisure time to do what she wants at her own pace. She can contemplate the world immediately around her trusting in its generosity and relaxing in its safety.
She is on rock solid ground entirely at home. Comfortable, satisfied, complete.
Associated with sexual energy, Scorpio loves to get Involved, going down deeper, coming up dirtier, and laying bare anything that lies hidden there.
“North Node Astrology”
by Elizabeth Spring
“The North Node is the single most important point in the chart…it describes what your Soul wants to learn and experience in this life. It is a Soul Messenger.”
With your North Node in Taurus, your Soul craves peace and serenity in this life–as well as good music, a loyal lover, and picnics on the beach with good food and wine! Doesn’t everybody? Yes, but not like you—you need these things to remind your Soul that life can be good and safe and beautiful.
Having suffered too much drama and trauma either earlier in this life, or in a previous one, you’re suffering now from a slight despair of spirit—one could even say that this Nodal combination has a “forgotten emotional memory” of life at its most tragic. The cure for this soul sickness is to nurture your self with the things that make life worth living. Cultivating loyal friends, enjoying nature and the physical world, and creating a beautiful home that feels like a safe harbor are all good things for you to do.
By choosing to find the “sacred in the commonplace” you re-awaken your Soul to the Divine in all things.
You’re not being a materialist when you truly enjoy the beauty of a hand-made wooden spoon or pottery bowl, or take time away from your work and ambitions to watch the sun set with an old friend. By seeing into the true nature of things, you get a sense of what many of the mystics have seen~that powers that be are here and now, and found in the ordinary/extraordinary things of this life.
What do you truly value? What do you stand for in life? Something in you needs to know yourself deeper and to prove yourself worthy. The old path or habits that need to be left behind involve too much immersion in other people’s dramas…a helping hand is fine, but don’t get embroiled in dramas that aren’t yours.
Power and control issues as well as your ability to manipulate situations need to be let go of. You’ve done too much of that in the past. The focus now needs to be on you, and finding what you value and what nurtures you.This life is about finding that mystical sense of belonging to a Universe that is benevolent. No easy task! It’s a profound spiritual calling to find spirit in matter, and to find yourself in “right relationship” with others.
On the Taurus-Scorpio path it’s important to ground yourself with a workable level of financial and emotional stability. If you can do that you’re ready to retrieve the gold in the shadow–your Scorpio South Node.
Away with the drama and trauma and melodrama! No more tragic love stories, no more battles for power, struggles for revenge, hidden agendas and all the stuff of great novels. Just peace. Serenity. That’s the movement away from the South Node in the 8th house to the North Node in the 3 rd house. Your Soul needs a rest…
The 8th house South Node, ruled by Pluto, has struggled to transform and be re-born like the phoenix, and somewhere in all that struggling has come an exhaustion and weariness of the spirit. This life is now one where you are being called to rethink your values, your priorities, and put the Venus ruled 2nd house of Taurus back in its position of prominence. This is not the Venus of the struggle, but of gentle inquiry—the one that has the savvy to pick her own battles and chooses the “mutual fund” that agrees with her political and ecological consciousness. This is the Venus that soothes us, and reminds us of our roots in this good earth. She’d rather write a poem than put on the dress that makes her into the femme fatale. She finds the sacred in the commonplace, and makes it extraordinary.
The South Node here has great gold in its shadowy inheritance—it has a hard won wisdom and occult knowledge that can serve us well when used right. Certainly astrologers and those interested in astrology, have resources here in the 8th house. But as always with the South Node there is the defeat and despair of what we didn’t get right earlier in this life or in a former life. We paid too much attention to other people’s business rather than our own. We were the power behind the throne, or the one who “borrowed” another’s values, glory, money or husband. Our own yearning for these things seemed to make it acceptable, but we missed the basic course in ethics and compassion and fairness.
There’s hidden wisdom and power there, for in your Scorpio past you deeply understood other people and had a keen intuitive-psychic nature. You might have been the detective, the shaman, the priest, or the power behind the throne~the one who could hone in on the emotional bottom line. Now if you can bring your new level of security and grounded faith in the goodness of life into your relationships with others and into your work, you can nourish others with your profound wisdom.
Soul Purpose: serenity and stability, regaining a sense of the sacred in the ordinary, a sense of having earned and gained by one’s own efforts, honoring good traditions and preserving what is valuable for future generations.
Looking to another for definition, self-confidence, or too much support. Taking things that aren’t yours. Collapsing into a felt sense of emotional pain from previous lives, and adapting an overly serious, gloomy attitude. Going to quickly into studying the occult and transpersonal realities, and thereby taking a spiritual bypass on your emotional life.
My beloved cat “Mister Purrby” passed in November of last year. He always loved to lounge in his catnapper that is positioned in front of the window. In January I found a beautiful cat, “Minnie,” not quite a year old at the shelter and brought her home with me. Since Purrby’s catnapper was old and worn from his weight (he was a hefty 29 pounds of white fur), I purchased a new one for Minnie, which I securely attached to thewindow ledge. Minnie soon decided this was her favorite spot.
Minnie and I were on the couch watching TV the other day, when out of the blue the catnapper just fell down. When I looked at it, I saw a clear impression in the padding. This was highly peculiar, because I had just fluffed the bedding earlier and cleaned the catnip off it. I had also checked it then, and noted that it was very stable. Odd!
When I went back to watch TV, shortly after the catnapper had fallen, the little fan in the living room just stopped. I checked the plug to make sure it was plugged in, and saw that it was. I thought perhaps there had been an electrical problem, but nothing else had fluctuated… so I figured the fan had seen it’s day. A few minutes later, the fan started up again!
Minnie will not go near the catnapper now. I want to believe my Purrby visited us.
