"The First Agreement" 22 d
The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly Regarding All Our Agreements
Roughly about eight years I declared my commitment to living ”The Four Agreements”. The first agreement is:
”Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.”
This first agreement is most sacred to me!
Some weeks ago I made a certain agreement with a fellow gardener. It was a ”good agreement” in a number of ways. Some days after that I had an opportunity to talk about an issue I had on my mind with another ”fellow garde ... read more
Astrology & The Enchanted Garden Onion 29 d
Healing and rebuilding in the E.G.O. (Enchanted Garden Onion)

Re: ”Tuesday April 24, 2018” -
”... CHIRON IN ARIES demands we do the action to make life happen in alignment with healing our wounds. (YEP WE ALL HAVE THEM)***
YOU DO remember Saturn is retrograde now (as of the 17th) : Saturn naturally rules boundaries, limits, responsibilities, discipline, and authority.
During any Saturn retrograde transit, we may revisit or review those topics associated with Saturn or feel as if we are given a momentary reprieve from the typical effects of Saturn transits, which may include pressure and a sensation ... read more

Feng Shui Inside "The Onion" 4 mon
Annual Feng Shui Flying Stars and predictions for 2017, Year of the Fire Rooster
”In traditional Chinese medicine, Fire is associated with the heart and blood circulation.”
This line immediately caught my closer attention as yesterday I had just noted (and blogged elsewhere) re: Circulation!
”Metal is related to lungs, skin and the immune system.”
This line added to my ”closer attention”.
”People with weaknesses in these areas should pay more attention to their health, eat well, exercise, de-stress and take additional supplements to strengthen the heart and immune system.”
This was recommended for the year 2017.
”This is especially important for peop ... read more
Human Design Inside "The Onion" 7 mon
The Daily Transit - Sun transits through the hexagrams according to the Human Design System.
February 8, 2018 -
Re: garden ”manager” -
An open center in your BodyGraph is a conditioning receptor (most especially when there are no gate activations). This receptor impacts your mind and creates what the Human Design System calls the Not-Self. The Not-Self creates its own decision-making strategy, leading you to make decisions based on conditioning rather than your true self.
Conditioning is only one side of the story. If you are unaware of the way you are conditioned through your open centers, (your most open centers are the Crown/Head Center and the Heart Center) it is s ... read more
The Relationship Bargain 11 mon
My Human Design Gate 40, the love of work
June 11, 2017 -
Just sent the following to the garden manager:
I’m doing my best to live according to my Human Design. One of the key Human Design Gates that I have activated and that best represents my relationship with the garden manager and the ”onion” house is partially described as follows (with edits I made to personalize it.):
”Gate 40 is the love of work, and when I am involved in work that is correct for me, I derive great satisfaction from delivering what I promised to an appreciative Tribe. The relationship bargain needs to be renegotiated often and kept crystal clear. ... read more
You Burn Incense... It’s Good, But It Is Not Enough 12 mon
If you want to attract the angels ... you must learn to exhale the fragrance of purity and holiness.
”...the soul of a virtuous person gives off a scent, and that scent attracts the angels, it attracts the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit descends only into a soul in which it can inhale the scent. It is therefore very important for us to manage, through our spiritual work, to improve the quality of our scent, that is to say, our psychic emanations, not so much to attract humans, but to attract friends from the invisible world. Why not offer them this joy?”

January 15, 2018 Astrologically speaking -
”...With a closing sextile aspect between Jupiter and Pluto, you may have an opportunity to release some dark influences that began at the end of 2007 with the conjunction between those planets. Ponder how your beliefs impact your deepest understanding of life.”
I don’t know whether this transiting aspect is as relevant here as I initially thought when I first read this however I’m all for the idea of releasing ”some dark influences”! ; ~ )

Seven-Centered Beings Invented Lying 15 mon
Madness that's been inherited psychologically from the seven-centered being.
A couple days ago I had a conversation with a ”fellow gardener” whom we had interviewed several months earlier with questions including health conditions that we should be aware of. It was only the other day when I learned of a health condition that significantly impacts this individual’s life to an extent that it also has some impact of the rest of us or maybe I should just say that it has some impact on me. Within a day I had a kind of epiphany about this - that people who live according to the conditioning of their seven-centered ancestors (seven-centered beings I’m calling SCBs) are l ... read more
The Karmic Enchanted Onion 16 mon
Numerology reveals the nature of this Garden!
”Every home has a distinct numeric vibration. To calculate your home’s personal number, disregard the street address. Add the house number until you receive a single digit. ...
Addresses that add up to 13, 14, 16, and 19 are karmic numbers. ...”
The E.G.O. address adds up to one of these ”karmic numbers”! Having this reference now gives objective validation to what I already knew yet had nothing ”to respond” to with this knowingness. Now at least I can note it here and possibly open up to researching the karmic nature of the E,G.O. visit the page
Garden "Pests" 20 mon
Coming to terms with 3D reality in the midst of all the "enchantment".
This site says:
“We live on one gigantic ant hill!”!
Oh yeah -
My fellow gardeners and I are witnessing this every day right inside our home!
We’ve tried most everything we can to resist the heavy traffic through our kitchen and bathrooms to the point of exhaustion. There’s a consensus building for calling an exterminator service. The thought of which wasn’t being entertained by the manager cause we don’t want the toxic chemicals inside our ”organic” home. Now a fellow gardener has found ”Hearts” (linked below) and it appears they offer a free inspection!

My Onion 20 mon
The words of wisdom for myself for September are:
”DON’T: Take on so much responsibility that you begin to feel resentful”
Actually this has been applicable to me for some time now. In fact the way the ”resentment” often manifests in my body is via back pain. I feel the pain now. It increased after I took out a second extra heavy recycling bin that may have been too heavy for the other ”fellow gardeners” to handle. I don’t know. But the most direct way out to the street was blocked and I’m reasonably sure that is where resentment was easily triggered in me. And I think the triggering w ... read more

All The Garden Is A Stage 23 mon
Intelligent people can appreciate the fact that Shakespeare represents deeper meaning than what meets the eye on the shakespearean stage and yet these same intelligent people do not appreciate that all the world is indeed a "stage" and that they themselves have their parts in which they act and in fact ware a mask (i.e. a persona) through which they can act and interact with the world!
A ”former” gardener wrote:
”... - this is a great quote that you sent: ’The difference between a comedy and a tragedy, is that in a comedy the characters figure out reality in time to do something about it.’

Teachings (Omraam & others) that I think relate to this "Onion".
May 6, 2018 Happy Birthday Matthew!
Thought for the day -
”Humans have an instinctive need to impose themselves upon others. This is not necessarily a bad thing – it all depends on the area in which you seek to impose your will and how you go about it. Does not a rose impose itself? Yes. By its beauty and its fragrance it imposes itself upon us, but with what gentleness! And when the sun shines, it also imposes itself, since you begin to take off your coats and your jackets. Of course, if you are not wearing a hat you could get sunstroke, but the sun does not use violence, it does ... read more
Questions of Willingness (Will Be Resolved With Divine Will) 24 mon
I'm already choosing my "Third Agreement" not to make any assumptions about the willingness of others!
I am grateful for the steps that are being taken toward a new vision. I’m also aware that vision alone is not enough. Willingness is required to enact the new.
”...there are countless occupants that humans have to deal with, all the instinctive impulses they have to learn to resist: jealousy, anger, bitterness, greed, gluttony, sensuality, pride, vanity, and so on. But of all the possible occupants, the most dangerous is without doubt laziness. Why? Because it grips the will.”
I think gratitude can support our willingness to make change. In any case I highly recommend practic ... read more
New Vision/New Mission 24 mon
Contemplations for our very own "High Ideal Vision".
Yesterday a few of my fellow gardeners and I had conversation on writing a new vision and mission statement. We now have a ”homework assignment” to write our ideas on 3x5 cards to submit the next time we meet.
I offered a distinction between Vision and Mission. Vision is who we envision ourselves to be and thereby who we are becoming by way of our new birth! This Vision can be applied both individually and as a ”tribe”. I personally want to express the highest vision of who I am and of who I am becoming. Mission is what we do, what we contribute, the path we take to reach our goals, our ... read more
The Essential Need For A Spiritual Ideal 25 mon
The New Harmonic Convergence
I’m amazed at the many synchronicities that appear in my life! I’m so grateful for the synchronistic messages that I very often receive from the Omraam community including the following current one.
”People accumulate so much that is useless and even harmful in their head and heart. Why? Because they don’t know how to sort things. They accumulate everything indiscriminately, whether it be good, bad, useful, useless, essential or superfluous. And then they complain, ‘I am trying hard, so why am I not progressing? Why am I not getting anywhere?’ Well, the reason is very simple: they have ... read more

May 6, 2018 - There is at least one ”fellow gardener” who can probably relate to this:
Sometimes, you go climbing in the mountains. You must have noticed that it is the rough edges of the rocks that enable you to climb. How could you do so if the rocks were smooth? So, why is it that you fail to apply what you know about rock-climbing to this great journey called life that is much more meaningful? Why do you want your life to be smooth, and free of rough edges? In such conditions, you will never reach the top, and more importantly, you will tumble on your way down! Luckily for you, lif ... read more
