Astrology Forecast with Tom Lescher (February 25, 2014)
"If I don't stop and reflect on what's happened,
But get lost in creating and controlling the action,
I won't learn the lessons or see the wisdom,
That leads to my healing and soul evolution."

Sat, March 29: Spring into Balance
Located at the Emerald Palace
We opend up this Sacred container at the Emerald Palace on this Veil-in-Time night of bliss to invigorate our mind, body, spirit connections. It's time to connect fully to who we are and LOVE IT FORWARD into all areas of our lives, friends, family, communities, ChiKaGo and world.
In 1998 we had a simple idea, that everyone is beautiful and has something uniquely special to share so that we can improve the world together. Now, in 2014, we see the greater conscious community expanded so fluently into this idea. Thank You for shining your truth bright and leading those around you into a much healthier present future.
The essence of community is the love that the members share with each other. This love is unattached to any outcome yet contains the utmost respect with every action and thought. In the past 15 years of becoming BrilliantlyMad we’ve seen the community flow closer together in this love, sharing themselves with those around, while moving away from fear or conditions. As the love opens to us we may continue to feel the emotional pains from the past. Allow yourself the forgiveness needed to settle those memories and heal your temple.
How do you perceive the world around you? Under the influence of the mind we tend to worry into our thoughts instead of being present with our intuition. Don’t let worldly lenses trap you into false perceptions. Our senses transfer feelings to our nerves, while our brain intercepts those triggers to stifle and confuse us. Commune with the Divine that is inside of you, waiting patiently for your compassion and love to flow.

"The essence of love is perception, therefore the essence of self love is self perception.”
- Marc Gafni
Can you feel the Divine presence all around? Are you willing to shift with the natural rhythm and heal yourself into Mother Earth? Where is your center balance and are you ready to settle the mind chatter and connect your heart? There is an old revolution forming again as we re-align with nature. This spiritual reunification will send us bursting into gratitude, celebrating the senses, connecting our higher self with this physical body.
So many more acts of forgiveness will be top priority through each of our distorted perceptions, emotions and fields of waves. This week we're meditating into 'Perception' to peel the layers, wipe the lens clean, make up true beliefs & harness the awesome power of our mind-heart connection to harmonize our Brilliance with our Madness. Release, open, breathe, forGive, receive LOVE.
Let’s honor these sacred vessels with all our power, detoxifying it all, including our attitudes and emotions. Let’s take our fingers off the trigger patterns of the past and move forward, building a compassionate future with our whole hands. We shine brighter together in respect to each Citizen of this Earth. We embrace all life that moves through our daily journey. There is no separation or duality. Stand besides your brothers and sisters and join in harmony as we connect to the loving opportunities with infinite love and gratitude.
-Brother Big Heart

The BrilliantlyMad Collective ...aren't we all??
In 2012 we journeyed through Trans Form Nation in four major events at each of the four seasonal changes. The first was ROOT AWAKENING on March 24th to set our intentions for the coming year during the Spring Equinox at the Emerald Palace. For the second phase, we united over 90 light workers to gift Chicago the Conscious Love Summit during the Summer Solstice on June 16th at the Bodhi Spiritual Center. The fire of summer raised us out of the ashes that Mother Earth held for our journeys.
During the third season we ReTreated to Ronora Lodge, September 21st to the 23rd, aligning with our conscious family at EqualEyez. The Ancient Soulstice with our Ancestors was held from December 20th through December 22nd and was the completion of our four-part Trans Form Nation series of 2012. The LeaderShip has now set sail through a variety of workshops, musical performances and other beautiful inspirations that we are bringing back to our extended communities.

Like the empty sky it has no boundaries, yet it is right in this place, ever profound and clear. When you seek to know it, you cannot see it. You cannot take hold of it, but you cannot lose it. In not being able to get it, you get it. When you are silent, it speaks; when you speak, it is silent. The great gate is wide open to bestow alms, and no crowd is blocking the way.
