Take the opportunity of this new moon with a solar eclipse to immerse yourself into a deeper feminine place. Look at this from your perspective, from your mother’s perspective, and with great love and respect, let go of anything that doesn’t fit. A deeper calling is “hear” for you: feel directly. Go to the earth, if only for one moment, and with bare feet place your hands on the ground as well. You will be a current of energy running deep into mother earth. Allow anything that is no longer true to form, go – with hands and feet wide and vulnerable – straighten the hooks of attachments created both by you and anyone else. Let go! Ask of the Divine Mother to fill your heart and direct you gently. Be your own individual. Breathe and smile. Share via the comments!
When I woke up this morning my first thoughts were about being a river. I saw very clearly the things that keep me clinging to the shore. Zen uses the river as an example of how to live a life in flow. Whoever I am still carrying and wherever I perseverate is me clinging to the shore. We don’t have to stay on the shore. Comfort is also the shore. That’s why Zen says stay moving. I see self inflicted torture as standing on the shore watching life go by, they are the thoughts that keep us from jumping in and letting nature deliver. When I got up and I looked at new emails there was one from my sister:
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some
blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a
spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
