New Moon August 30, 2019
You are warmly invited by this Black Moon*
to be entirely yourself.
A brightly endowed manifestation of the universe
uniquely expressing itself as & through you.
A new moon thought experiment:
What if there is nothing wrong with you,
you are not actually fucked up, damaged, or unloveable
in any meaningful way whatsoever!
Imagine all the energy we devote to trying to remediate
the terribly embarrassing “problem” of our brokenness.
What if every aspect of our life was re-defined as “just this is it”?
A radical new starting point: I am, all this is okay, there is nothing wrong with me.
What if, in every moment,
All things are symbols of themselves.
Every feeling, sensation and experience is sacred.
Every journey is sacred.
Every sacred journey is complete.
We are being called to royally occupy the sacred dark,
self-sowing seeds of compassion, clear-seeing, awakening.
Gifting ourselves this freedom naturally
becomes giving this acceptance & freedom to those around us.
May fresh lunar winds blow out stale thinking!
*The second New Moon in a calendar month is called a Black Moon
