The email invitation to go to Egypt for the solar eclipse in August 1999 hit me in the belly like a lightning bolt. It was one of those rare times in my life when I just knew I had to drop everything and, come hell or high water, follow that thread that pulled me forward from the future. I had to trust that I would be supported to go there.
I’ve been thinking about how the human condition can be brutal. It feels to me as if there are four big archetypes playing out on a grand scale for many people individually and collectively. I call them the Big Four: Victim, Tyrant, Rebel, Savior.
A great video made by my friend Brad Laughlin of Corelight featuring two amazing spiritual teachers, Leslie Temple-Thurston and Andrew Harvey discussing the rare white lions of Timbavati. See my post on the white lions here. Star Beings of Africa, The White Lions of Timbavati from Brad Laughlin on Vimeo.
