thoughts around the summer solstice
as the Roman Christians conquered the nature traditions they replaced their nature based holy days with church controlled holy days, ie. xmas and easter replaced the winter solstice celebrations and spring equinox holy days. this subversive intent was to seize power over the earth based cultures and enslave the people and nature in organized religion ruled by the "rational" elite. A time when personal power and respect for the power of nature was corrupted by mankind's blind desire to control all.
today this Christian culture recognizes the Summer Solstice scientifically/"rationally" Around 1915 this christian culture (USA) instituted Father's Day as a way for the people to celebrate. Interestingly the powers that be placed it at the time of the Summer Solstice. This was intended to ease the tensions created by the peoples' emotional detachment from the innate human connection to the natural rhythems.
today is a day to celebrate our personal power shining brightly in alignment with the power of the natural rhythems.
