    Thank you. Eric,

    I am so thankful you are speaking. I am so grateful so many hear you and understand what you are speaking. I pass your messages to those I love in hope they will subscribe (for your sake) and in hope they would also understand (for their sake).

    Doors opening
    Doors closing
    I am not afraid
    It is only change

    Why do those words so profoundly affect me as you read them today? Because I AM afraid sometimes. And because that’s ok. Because after perhaps lifetimes of experience I know: it’s (only) change.

    Remembering a group conversation in the Hudson Valley about the Harmonic Convergence, in which a mutual friend of Heather Fae and mine mentioned he was born very near the Harmonic Convergence as well. It struck me how their entire lives had spanned what for me was but a chapter, though an important one; and I wondered at the timing of their births, and how their lives had been shaped by the energies of this time frame.

    In some ways that global ceremony feels like ages ago. And in more than one sense, it was. This weekend I’m remembering Jose Arguelles, and the opening of this twenty-five year window into what Terence McKenna would call ‘the novel’. Rest in Peace, Jose. You felt like a godfather to me in important ways. Wish you could have stayed to see this cycle reach whatever culmination destiny has in store. But you’re surfing the zuvaya now…

    Beautifully reflective; a moving piece to share Eric. As I listened to your story, I thought of how we treat time. We may not know the significance of a choice or a moment until decades later. Somehow those choices join together and formulate our lives. Your grandfather’s passing, your brother’s discharge, your participation, all lead to this moment. How wonderful that you feel heard and understood, from that perspective all else can disappear.

    I wonder if when we make choices, if we came from the place that we know/believe we are understood if we would act differently. I think I will try it today when self-doubt emerges, or if I think I am separate from events and others. Maybe that gateway is open for us at any time if we choose to step into it. Thank you for being real and brave by sharing what you thought was a riskier piece. I find it all the more intriguing. And inspiring.

    I am eager to hear and read more. Best wishes for this project’s success in reinforcing that connective thread we all share.

    I Feel you. I Understand you. I Thank you!

    You are one of my favorite contemporary writers and I’m so grateful that you aren’t feeling misunderstood and all that stuff that is so with artists. I am fully embracing the fact that the supporters of my art get me too, and it feels f*ing great after weeding out so many people, some of whom have known me many years, who never seemed to understand me.

    Yes.

    Thank you so much for sharing this essay! I have loved all the audio reports on the blog; it really gives the astrology information a more meaningful, more personalized dimension.

    Looking back on that time (Harmonic Convergence) means alot to me (and I’m sure to many people) as it really was the beginnings of a big spiritual awakening for me after years of trying to come to terms with the fact that I believed in Creator, something perhaps bigger than us all and yet part of our very essence, while at the same time pulling further and further away from my Catholic upbringing.

    I remember turning inward and reading everything I could get my hands on, starting around late 1986. I became aware of synchronistic events and began experiencing a buzzing on the crown of my head at that time. When I would ask family members if they were experiencing the same things, they kind of looked at me like they didn’t really know what I was talking about, so I just let it go.

    It wasn’t until after the Harmonic Convergence happened that I discovered that alot of people were having similar experiences. Your essay really brought me back to that wonderful, mysterious, challenging beginning. I look forward to hearing more about this book!

    Dear Eric,

    This is very moving to me, thank you. I look forward to this book immensely.

    And there is a bit of news people here might wish to know: Jose Arguelles has passed.

    http://www.realitysandwich.com/jose_arguelles_passes

    ” According to the Foundation for the Law of Time, Jose Arguelles “departed this Planet on Solar Moon 17 (March 23), Red Spectral Moon, at 6:10 a.m (the exact same time that he was born in 1939 in the Red Spectral Moon year).”

    The children’s chant is so perfect:
    “opening doors; closing doors; I’m not afraid; it’s only change”
