When I was a little girl, I used to talk to the moon all the time. No matter what phase, no matter what her face. I thought that the moon was the face of God and the rain, his tears sending down the water for trees to grow out of our hearts. My first online handle was Moongirl75. I loved playing in the light of the shadow of the moon. It's the light around the shadow that lets us know the shadow is there. Shadow is not darkness, there is no shadow in the darkness.
There is nothing to be afraid of. This is the moon's medicine. There is always a time to rise, a time to fall, a time to persist and a time to surrender. A natural time of growth and expansion, then the ensuing contraction and ebbing of the tides. The moon's prayer is one of balance and heart, honoring the mystery as much as the drive for rational knowledge. We are an embodiment of this great in-between. We must persist in not forgetting that the mysteries are also a part of who we are.
Sometimes the mystery lies in the forgetting because when we forget, it makes the remembering more valuable. Then, we can no longer take the mystery, or any of it's gifts, for granted. So, we must lose our connection and find the re-connection in order to really savor, understand and live in an honoring devotion. Then, we get it. None of it matters until we are ready to get it.
I remember this whenever I forget. It is a part of the cycle, to forget and it helps me to let go. Holding on can create a lot of struggle and when there is struggle there is no understanding. It becomes hard for the love to get in. The time for us all in the forgetting is what is only for us to know and discover. It ebbs and flows as we do. There is always more. There is always a great emptiness. And, our soul is always there. The moon is always there. The solid ground of this earth is always there. Our hearts are pulling us to root down and sync with the heart beat of the earth. That yearning to connect with something greater than ourselves and feel comfortable in our own skin, that yearns to feel safe feeling all the feels, to speak the truth and know the difference between the fear from wounding and the fear of stepping more into wholeness. They can feel the same, but they are not. We are all consciously or unconsciously moving towards our wholeness, like the moon is always moving closer and farther away from herself.
The mysteries live in the in-between, the spaces we are meant to inhabit and embody as we dance and move in this infinity loop of life, always recalibrating that center point. I have spent my entire life deeply in search of what it means to bring the essence of true love all the way down to the bones of the bones of my very DNA. I am now here as a guide to help you, to walk with you and to at times show you the way down into the heart of your heart, to love the bones of your bones and feel the sacred comfortable in your own skin.
