The moon is gentle. I love to imagine her as a silvery Being, whose great power lies in her receptivity. Life ain’t easy. Sometimes the chaos seems real, and when it does the temptation is to dive further into the mess by trying to sort it out or prove things. Our peace will come by instead stepping back. And remembering what sustains and nourishes us. Becoming receptive to that. Only then can we see through the illusory veil of chaos. We can, for the moment, allow the moon's fullness and closeness to light up what's beyond the veil. A new path for us. What would be on that path? Beauty? Inspiration? Kindness? This is an auspicious moment for letting drop away anything that has been interfering with that.
On Sunday at 5 o’clock, join me in spirit for a meditation on these reflections, in the company of the full moon. (See blog post below for more details.)
"Every moment can be lived in the awareness of the Beautiful Truth that rests behind and between thoughts. But we can start today with just one conscious breath. Tomorrow, maybe two. It's easy, when we stop trying so hard."
