Back to the upcoming solar eclipse... some see an eclipse as a good omen, some see it as a bad omen, some don't see anything at all. It is all a matter of where and what you are looking at. But, if you are looking at the eclipse be sure to wear sunglasses.
For my part, I see an opportunity to seed my life with a breath of renewal. The time of the new moon is a time of seeding and a solar eclipse is a new moon on steroids. Whether you seed consciously or not, it's the same thing. The Universe has no filter, anything goes. For my part, I will make an extra effort to be mindful of my thoughts, words and actions during this time. Emotions are heightened during an eclipse period and while my fellow humans can be loosing it around me, I can be an anchor if I am mindful. I believe that in this way, I can contribute to the welfare of my part of the world.
August 21 has a personal significance to me... in 1998, there was a solar eclipse, not visible in my part of the world, but still.... I was expecting a big change in my life. Did I ever get what I wanted. My life was shook to its core... wouldn't want to go through that again, but I'm still thankful. So, 19 years after, I feel I am coming full circle and a new dawn begins.
It's only a belief, one that I choose to carry to its fruitfulness.
Let us fall in love again
and scatter gold dust all over the world.
Let us become a new spring
and feel the breeze drift in heaven’s scent.
Let us dress the earth in green
and like the sap of a young tree
let the grace from within us sustain us.
Let us carve gems out of our stony hearts
and let them light our path to Love.
The glance of Love is crystal clear
and we are blessed by its light.”
