The third part of the V&E Series Zarathustra’s Discourses from Prologue II and we meet a saint in the forest who has met Zarathustra both before and after his Rebirth. From the saint’s remarks on the changes he sees I have come up with list of the 7 Observable signs of Rebirth.
The second in the V&E series Zarathustra’s Discourses I am discovering what it means to transition from the passive being (emergence) to the active becoming (vehemence).
I had a plan. I put everything int0 this plan: my time, effort, and energy, and to no avail. The universe returned my efforts with a message: there is a greater plan you need to follow now, and it is not the one you were working for (and you know it).
I had put all of my effort into plan B, which did involve a lot of courage: facing fears, working through setbacks, and being honest with myself. However, Plan A is less comfortable, less secure, more of an unknown than Plan B.
It seems I have a choice before me: work towards the life I have envisioned for myself or make a new plan B. The decision seems obvious but, following plan A has me feeling lost, confused, scared, and courageous, brave and strong all at once.
Am I experiencing an existential crisis, or is it something else?
I am starting a series on passion and discovery through a reading of Friedrich Nietzsche’s Zarathustra’s Discourses. Starting from the beginning, I will be using the text to discover the meaning of the self, rebirth, and renewal, and motivation of the self through being and becoming.
To emerge is to come to light
Emergence is being or coming into view and it is the realization that we have not been awake in our own lives: that we have drifted away from our true intentions, or denied our true selves.
John O’ Donahue’s book Anam Cara was my first introduction to Celtic Wisdom and since that time, over a decade, now I have encountered and explored many other wisdom traditions, now including, the Yoga Sutra and the spiritual teachings of yoga. While I appreciate and am grateful for a comprehensive viewpoint, I consider the Druidic and Celtic perspective to be my home base. In that light I would like to share with you Samhain; Etymology, Philosophy, Traditions, as well as a Special Samhain inspired Yoga Sequence, Shaman Music Ritual, Guided Meditation, and Samhain ASMR.

Our minds need exercise just as much as our bodies. The workings of the mind are more elusive than the body but equally if not more important to our overall well-being. I believe that our minds are strengthened through learning and seeking. The more we know thee more we can trust ourselves to let go.
