CHI! KA! GO! FORECASTINGS
Astrology Forecast with Tom Lescher (October 7 2014)
"As I discover just how different I am,
From so many other women and men,
Instead of hiding I need to come out,
Giving us all permission to run, jump, and shout.
Welcome to the eclipse season! These are tricky waters to navigate as the energy goes bonkers the next couple of weeks. You may find yourself vacillating between the extremes of rebelling (sometimes without a cause) and, fearing negative results, squelching your unique expression. Ruthless rebelling can cause upset and adverse reactions from others messing everything up and stuffing your feelings can cause nervous indigestion if not downright craziness!
The trick here is to trust that yes, you are different and have a unique purpose/mission on this earth and you are not going nuts AND, with patience and keen awareness you will see when, where, and with whom it is "appropriate" to share your unique identity. With the proper strategy great advances can be made and magic can become a very real par of your life. Not acting strategically can really set you back. One way or the other there will be few dull moments so be stay awake and be prepared for the unexpected! Enjoy the process of BECOMiNG.

SACRED COSMIC CLOWNS
There's no better time than now to arise from the ashes of our past life and start anew. There's so much to be filtered out from today's society as we continue to get bombarded by old paradigms, lies and manipulation.
The Dalai Lama was asked what surprise him most in an interview and here's what he said, “Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.” Collective Evolution
Another world is always possible but we just have to see all the opportunities truly around us in each moment. How can we succeed in our dreams and transforming this world many times over for all? Maybe entertaining states of Brilliance and Maddness can be of assistance, as Gary Z McGee says in this article on "The Path of the Sacred Clown: Where Trickster and Shaman Converge":
"Crazy Wisdom, which the Guru adopts in order to shock their students out of fixed cultural and psychological patterns..... "Lest we write our lives off to such stagnated states, we must become something that has the power to perpetually overcome itself. The sacred clown has this power. Christ was a sacred clown, mocking the orthodoxy. Buddha was a sacred clown, mocking ego attachment. Even Gandhi was a sacred clown, mocking money and power."
"Sacred clowns understand that humans fail, and failing means that sometimes we need to change. They remind us that the goal is not to stick to the same old path, but to embrace the vicissitudes of life and to discover new paths and the courage it takes to adapt and overcome. Taking the universe into deep consideration, letting it be, and then letting it go, is far superior to clinging to a “belief” and becoming stuck in a particular view. Sacred clowns realize that the highest wisdom lies in this type of counter-intuitive detachment, in accepting that nothing remains the same, and then being proactive about what it means to change." Gary Z McGee
It's time to wake up the leader in each of us and awakening all those that are still followers in the culturally programmed system. We have always been the ones we've been waiting for as the fully realized being comes forth to live in ceremony.
Peace Be -- Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu
May all beings everywhere find peace within and surrounding, in all relations; past, present and future.
We shall continue to unify our cells to ascend into the most profound beings we can be, flying high and drawing the sweet nectar out of life’s most precious offerings.

Our good friend Plainwhite Tom passed early in the early morning on January 2nd and left behind a ripple of inspiration for us all to carry forth into the world.
"To burst embers of inspiration into a world greatly looking for it. Please be kinder to one another. Nicer ... ya know."

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 16 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.
