“If we didn’t have these three periods a year the human would go crazy from the upward spiraling energy of communication and connection. Time of rest is absolutely essential. When Mercury goes into the retrograde pattern and there may not be as much energy for connection outwardly, the yogis counseled to use that time to go inward." - yogi bhajan
We are not victims to celestial movements. We can use the energy instead of letting the energy use us. Falling back and retrograding - just like mercury - remembering to remember. Slowing down and reflecting. Behold and bring your past present and learn new lessons. We are not really going backward when we review, retrograde movement is an illusion. Let the challenges and the harsh lessons be our teachers - just like Saturn - map the boundary of your challenges. There is a way through every block. Release yourself from yourself. Dwell in god, the generating, organizing and delivering energy of the cosmos. Contained, content and conscious.
In class this week we will learn how to harness the intense energy of the approaching solstice combined with the Mercury Retrograde conjunct with Saturn. Learn to use the energy or the energy will use us. Let's prepare our bodies, mind and spirit for absolute victory and ease during the holiday.
"If Mercury didn’t go retrograde; we all would be out of our wits. When Mercury goes forward, it is the time to look at the world as a whole. When Mercury goes retrograde, it is a time to look at oneself. Looking at every aspect of oneself is the greatest meditation of all meditations. Please let Mercury do its job and you do yours." - yogi bhajan
