Full Moon Solstice 2018
You darkness from which I come,
I love you more than all the fires
that fence out the world,
for the fire makes a circle
so that no one sees you anymore.
But darkness holds it all:
the shape and the flame,
the animal and myself,
how it holds them,
all powers, all sight —
and it is possible: its great strength
is breaking into my body.
I have faith in the night.
Solstice Greetings Dear Ones,
Did you see the moon this morning? Potent Silence. And with the moon these words........
Step away from the all the fires of what you “know”. All the fires of my and mine. And take a plunge into the dazzling, wild depths of infinite Unknowingness. Drop the stories of limitation into the infinite space of totality. Surrender your conditioned beliefs of identity, the contracted “me”, to THAT-from-which-‘I’-comes. Return the idea, of a separate self, into the embrace of the uncaused Love, the uncaused Joy of the “Peace that passeth all understanding”. When one courageously and sincerely returns the idea of a separate “me” to the wholeness of Reality, as it is, a revolutionary journey of potentiality begins.
The stamina and fortitude required for such a path is fueled by Grace, courage, sincerity, and a willingness to question. When the most cherished and tightly-contracted beliefs of separateness become penetrated and illuminated, one encounters the very challenging experience of allowing the deepest layers of “me” to be surrendered. In the tender, vulnerable experience of “i don’t know”, it becomes more and more imperative to live in an open attitude of discovery and an acceptance of unknowingness. If you find yourself brought to your knees by this process, then you know you are on the path. Brought to your knees, not in an attitude of victimization, but with great humility and awe. A sense of “I once was blind but now I see”. Wonder and amazement. A direct experience of being delivered, through uncaused Love, into the realization of one’s true Self.
In Gratitude and Love,
“I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope,
for hope would be hope for the wrong thing;
wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing;
there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.”
