The Solar System DNA Trail as We Move Through the Milky Way
Searching through Draft files yesterday for projects I have in my queue, I found this wonderful GIF that AT Mann sent me in advance of his appearance as a guest on my and Isaac Bradfield’s Inner State Highways TV show on PEN back in 2013 or so. Such a vibrant and wonderful and robustly creative person and guest! He stands as one of my favorite people on the planet.
Enjoy the wingtip vortices trailers coming from each planet and tail vortice from the Sun as our solar system home moves Around the Sun as all move together along our 230 million year orbit around the Milky Way leaving a trail like giant, multi-helix DNA! Bet I’ve never factored that timing into a Chart in an Astro reading. Long term dreams and goals, anyone?
Such a SaWEET visual ephemeris that says, Time? Nah, don’t care much for it. I’m already there. May mean Moira’s running the show with Saturn (Chronos/Kronos) so Chiron can make his own way in the world on his own time..
Have a great rest of the weekend, everyone!

Intention is important, and it can also be vastly over-rated. It is far more important the way an idea comes across.
Jordan Hoggard, at a BBQ in 1992 or 1993 in Denver, CO
…Yes, we are. Well put. When we are not ourselves, when we do not actionably put into place our dreams, there’s a hole in the Universe puzzle where we were supposed to be. No reason to be MIA from oneself in one’s own life. It’s impossible to hide from ourselves anyway as we know where we are. Though, strangely as it were, people ARE able to hide themselves away from themselves. Beautifully En Ig Mat Ic.
I prefer to reveal character and keep my boundaries on a workout regimen to both train people how to treat me, as well as enhance, reinforce, and strengthen them. Them, meaning my own character of identity, and them meaning other people as I feel we enhance and amplify one another as we stretch together experiencing one another’s perspective.
That in itself is simply one tool I use to tune the clarity of my voice and vision through action as one would tune a piano. Not nebulous at all. A little Neptunian boundarylessness, though not vague. And, maybe not even a tool at all as more often than not it’s simply how I operate. Practice 10,000 kicks and cool, though so what? Practice one kick 10,000 times, and the mind forgets as the body remembers. Things focused on and immersed in or with integrate things naturally. That’s why it erodes people over time to stay in negative or toxic environments, regardless of how centered they are. Water conforms to its cup. You get shaped. Shit spatters, and that stuff gets in.
Water confirms to its cup.
Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in ateapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. ~ Bruce Lee
Be fluid, though don’t blindly go with the flow. Only dead fish go with the flow. Turn upstream to strengthen. Experience the water bringing the food downstream to you.
There are no dead end roads. When you get to the end of one, what’s the view? What’s the vantage point? What’s the advantage point? Pause. What’s the workability there you would have otherwise never experienced? Can there be any MORE questions in this paragraph?
Experience The Advantage Point before going, hmmmppph. Worth keeping the experience? Cool. New jewel of experience. Not Worth keeping? Just as cool, so don’t. Cut it. Drop it. Dissolve-evaporate-release it fully. No goodbyes, certainly no long goodbyes. Let go like deadheading pansies, and feel your energy no longer spent there further fuel what you do keep. Feel how deadheading keeps things fresh and viscerally vibrant.
As I expressed in the Imagination Primer book portion of Tarot in the Land of Mystereum ( (c) 2011 Jordan Hoggard, published by Schiffer Publications 2011), Forgetting is for getting. It makes more room for the good stuff. There are also no failures. Only OFLEs. OpportunitIes For Learning Experienced. I don’t look for the positive in negative situations. I look for the workability.
As soon as as you concern yourself with the ‘good’ or ‘bad’ of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weakens and defeats you. ~ Morihei Ueshiba
Embrace the creation and destruction and making and Death As the Master Gardener in the unforgivingly interrogating tensions of the creative act where edits are integrated and/or disappeared as effortlessly as chaff, from wheat, in the wind.
Just like Nature’ll kill ya in an instant high above treeline above 14,000 feet on a 14’er, allow YOUR Inner Nature to be as natural. Roll the weather in and out through the world of your creativity As Nature does in the world. No malice. No rage. No happy or sad or glad. 100%, pure, uncut identity. That’s intensity. Take the care of the Alchemist, though. Like 100% cranberry juice is toxic, has to be cut with apple juice or other, so it is with your deep well, your Inner Inhertiances and innate talents you’ve developed into abilities. Do you flow or crash? People conform to the cup and vessel of their world. What shape have you made your world into on the potter’s wheel of your life? How do YOU grow a Lotus out of the mud so to speak?
Quoted from After II right here by Jordan Hoggard. Today, JordanHoggard.com
Heck, even fear and stress are solid navigation tools when not allowed to be hijacked by anxiety which distorts it into being afraid. DUCK! Yep, glad I listened. Fear can be like radar, like a cone zone on the highway. No need to drive through the cones and off the portion of the bridge that’s out. Well, if you have a flying car… Otherwise, that’s on you.
And, FEAR, like the butterflies in the stomach before a speech kind of fear that’s really your body warming you up, your nerves reaching out, your nerves engaged in preparation for activity. Your anxiety will never tell you you are in danger, because anxiety is what will get you in danger in the 1st place. Fear doesn’t step in the pothole twice. The next time, fear will walk you around a different way never to engage that pothole again.
Before the Speech
Before the speech? Your Will will tell you it’s just warming up the car, preparation for activity nerves. Fear, is Radar Love. FEAR. Feeling Energized And Ready yet?
What are the 1st inklings from creative work you’re doing that indicate your disciplined work is starting to pay off?
Or, put in a gardener’s perspective:
I bet the Crocus weren’t the 1st to poke up their noses this year like for the last 30. I’m personally, grieving that change. Though, the garden of Me is present and presenting as it is, and that is simply change. I resonate with it, or simply notice it. Do I respond to it?
I’m experiencing THAT newness. Something now indicates Soul Gardener, something someone said years ago, and maybe I’m just now growing into that after 7 years of partial Cicada Sleep now awake again.
Thank you M.Y. (Seriously, the person’s name initials, and now they are certainly fitting. I’ll tell Ya, too. They weren’t then. Though, they must have been somewhere in me, though, She evidently saw through the other stuff.)
“Inspect what you expect.” ~ citation unknown
What’s unsaid, present and built inside, that you can own now?
How can you NOW cut through to YOUR work by inspecting your expectations of yourself?
What do YOU have present that you’ve built inside that is yours, that’s valuable to you, that you can now own?
No need to wait 7years. What’s your gig now?
What are you growing in to?
What noses poke up within you this Spring from your consistent work? I grieve the Crocus as my Gardener’s notion of knowing what ‘Starting’ the season is. I simply looked forward to that morning where I saw their noses poking up in that full-on light of, “WE’RE BACK.” That isn’t what happened this year. Though, I’m acclimating, this year the Crocus said,
This year, go be comfortable with the not-knowing, like us. Inspect your expectations within yourself. That’s not our job this year. It’s yours. Glad you’re our gardener, though.
The Crocus kicked me out of the nest like a baby bird this year.
Who knew? DAYum. And, full-on diggin’ it! Great stuff! Glad that ground thing is so far down there.
