Lunar New Year is here, and along with it the usual chance
to purify the old year, and release all guilt, grudges
and all other soul sludge and cellular pain. In
the grand arc of the year, February 2003 is, as
it always is in every year, the month of purification
just before the surge of Spring.

precedes the main energy show of the year, from
March to July.
the first three months of the year, there is another
energy arc of great importance. Michael
Lightweaver has aptly written that in early
2003, January is preparation, February is manifestation
and March is implementation.
is in fact the activity of the magician, who brings
thought into concrete reality, or actual energy,
the results that he or she imagines and intends.
In February, awakened people will be asked to act
as magicians, at least to help conduct the flowing
of enlightening and re-invigorating spirit energy
between earth and heaven. The outcomes we create
in February will do much to determine what will
manifest -- and who will do the manifesting -- during
the main drama in the middle of the year, between
March and July. We decide now, in February,
whether the active theatre of love will defeat the
play of pain this year. And whether we shall play the all-inclusive comedies of love with so much commitment
that the murder and explosion movies can't find
distribution anymore, and we initiate the flow of
peace, joy and love on Earth.
is the Astral Material.
To skip it, go to the next rubric.
2003 can be viewed as a test in which we will see
whether there are now enough enlightened, love-moved
and interconnected people on the planet to combine
their intentions and balance, even reverse, the
fear-motivated energies that institutions of control
are now attempting to build all over the world.
The choice in February is clear: will those who
seek to manifest fear make the world more fearful,
or will those who are in love make the world more
loving, and will they hold the space of love and
be intentionally accountable?
the learning of love goes, Exam week begins on Valentine's
Day again, and runs Feb. 14 - 21, from the Full
Moon in Aquarius to the Sun's entry into Pisces. The

dilemma between the two.
The warrior is restrained by the spy.

can expect that in this week a complex and delicate
web of commitments and intentions will have to be
held in place by awakened people in order to keep
the Earth safe from the combined nervousness of
governments, capitalists, separatist religions and
other Piscean hierarchies who must now deal
with the understandable fear that comes from being
inexorably irrelevant, and who may weird out in
unpredictable ways if they are not loved and valued.
It is time to suspend judgment and put aside, as
Milarepa sang, all gossip and accusations.
Show: Comedies of Compassion
-- as Scaramouche says in the Commedia dell'
Arte when it is time to cut through the conflicts
and complications of the plot -- the time for action
has arrived! We have done all the exposition and
emotional venting we need for now. It is time to
make sure the right thing gets done. The main line
of the classic clown plot for February is: since
the fear empire will try absolutely anything to
panic herds of people into fury, it is incumbent
on awakened clowns everywhere to create the comedy
of compassion and healing, if only by taking action
in persuasive pieces of funny, cheeky theatre. Here
are two beauties that are looking for actors:
a Weapons Inspector. You can sign on as an honorary who is aligned in intention with Rooting Out Evil, a network of dozens of peace activists in Canada and the United States who will demand the right to inspect America's weapons of mass destruction a few weeks from now. "We're following Bush's lead," says co-organizer David Langille, "and demanding that the U.S. grant our inspectors immediate and unfettered access to any site in the country -- including all presidential compounds -- so that we can identify the weapons of mass destruction in this rogue state."
All right, the group's name needs work. "Rooting Out Evil" has about it the oily, fiery smell of that old dualistic, conflictive paradigm to which war wishers are so addicted, and which we shall all eventually have to outgrow. But there's no arguing with the juice of the story line: a few peace activists vs. the U. S. government and nuclear arsenal in the David and Goliath story of all time. Stay tuned to see what happens with this one "later this winter", which the inspectors plan as their time to approach and appeal, and bring the point of pressure. Google the current link for Rooting Out Evil.

This is the action for those who want to do something
theatrical. The premise is to enclose a small bag
of uncooked rice in a letter that says, "'If
thy enemies are hungry, feed them.' Romans I.20", and send it to the White House. The idea is that the President gets a flood of rice, and thereby understands that a very great number of voters wants him to behave peaceably. A campaign of this kind worked, wonderfully enough, with Eisenhower, who was persuaded by some tons of rice delivered to the White House that it is better to feed the Chinese than to bomb them. This kind of simple comedy could work again.
of the scenario are clear. It is possible that all
of those who open and inspect these envelopes will
be wealthy Republicans who have never seen rice
in its uncooked form. They have of course seen it
many times, cooked, in restaurants. But they have
never seen raw, hard rice. The nervousness of these White
House staffers can be readily imagined in these
jumpy times as they open the envelopes: "Hmmm.
Mysterious white substance, sent in a plastic
bag, to prevent detection, to the White House. Could
us hope that this kind of bozotic frisson does not
occur. And let us get to work this month with sound,

this Calendar normally does not send out word of
global metaphysical ceremonies and events -- for this the
indispensable resource remains Barbara Wolf's Global
Meditations -- this time it is essential to invite
readers to align their energies in chant on World
Sound Healing Day, on Feb. 14. This ceremony of
linking awakened people everywhere by chanting the "Ah!"
for Peace all over the Earth has been
envisioned and organized by sound healing pioneer
and his team. We have the opportunity to give one another and Mother Earth an immense
infusion of our love and serenity on Valentine's Day. For aligning and
lifting in love, please join the Ah
Chant on Feb. 14
to which the awakening now proceeds is a better
grasp of the difference
between Reality and Actuality, and of the fact
that Reality gets less and less relevant, and Actuality
gets more important and immediate, all the time.
is the world of things. It comes from the Latin
res, for thing, and it is the religion of those
who believe that the ultimate test of
truth is the behavior of matter, and that if we can grasp
it with our senses, it is real and true. Reality
is all the nouns. Reality runs on the idea that
bodies are solid, and it is populated by people who
say "Get Real" so they can remain comfortable
in their estimate that what they accept as real
is not an illusion or a Potemkin village or a house
of cards, or an advertising campaign. Those who
buy the fear scenario have the most devoted loyalty
to Reality, the world of things, and thus they are
called Realists, if only by one another..
by contrast, is the world of action, the plane of
energy. Actuality is the verbs, all activated
by those -- humans and others -- who imagine
that the truth of the universe is not the alleged
solidity of "Things", but in the flow and
transformation of Energy. In the view of these Actualists, Piscean
Reality is changing into Aquarian Actuality all
the time, as we understand that resonating with
quanta of Energy drives change, while Reality slows
it. This retarding function of Reality is useful
for now, as an engine must have a brake, as long
as Reality does not try to seize control, or limit,
or hold down, the upward impulse of the Earth's
ascension into spirit. Reality has had, as they
say, a hell of a run. But as human beings continue
to evolve into spirit, Reality
will become obsolete.
is the thing that counts, the nightclub in the jungle,
the quick, intuitive run through the maze. We shall
need more Actuality -- and all that this implies
in the active use of our creative energies -- in
the months to come. Courageous, creative and funny
bursts of spiritual theatre are favored from now
to Purim, at the Pisces Full Moon.
the time for action has arrived. Become a weapons
inspector. Send some rice. Chant the "Ah!"
for peace on World Sound Healing Day. Help lift
and transform the planet. Get Actual. Keep holding
that frequency, and try some harmonics.
