Full moon tonight, big and silvery and bright.......shimmering and opalescent in the dark velvet sky. All my yoga classes, we did moon salutations......we greeted the moon! When you're that beautiful, you should be greeted!
As many of you know, I love the full moon.....I feel a kindred spirit to that orb that shines in the darkness.
And I know, it has no light of its own, just the radiance of the sun playing on its surface.
I think we all are much like the sun and the moon, we reflect each other's radiance, we reflect each other's fear, we reflect each other's anger, and we reflect each other's kindness. We can shimmer and guide each other through the darkness or we can consider ourselves a pale imitation, throw our hands up and bemoan the darkness and criticize the brightness of others. It's our choice.
I think the ones who came before us, understood and respected the sun and the moon.......they knew their value. They knew without the sun, we would wither and die and without the moon, we would not understand beauty. The ebb and flow of light and darkness, it is the yin and yang, the perfect balance. The sunlight is strong, but the light of the moon is soft.......and this time of year, as the harvest moon glows and appears so close to the earth, can't you feel its tug, its pull......how can you not look at its beauty and marvel?
May the same moon that is shinning down on me tonight, shine on you.......may it light your path, and reflect the beauty of your spirit, and may you dream the sweetest of dreams tonight. For all of you tonight, I give you the moon.
