Greetings Dear Friends.
As I pondered what mirror we might look into for this partial month of September, the world that arose within me was “Return”. Perhaps it is something about the bend of the light this time of year that ignites the water in diamantine sparkles , or the nodding and yellowing of the once green tomato leaves….so many things beginning their return to the belly of Mother Earth from which they came. Perhaps it is the return to work or school for yet again more learning and offering. Perhaps for me, it is the quiet entry into my Divinity studies which has asked me to turn into myself and examine the spirals of the many journeys I have taken in my life, all of which ( no matter the direction they faced) were threaded with opportunities to come Home. And when I say Home, I mean it just like Aum, the sacred sound that arises from the great Oneness of Ananda (bliss), grows and sustains, then absorbs itself back in it’s original essence like the seasons and cycles that dance through all life.
What if we looked at all our passages through time as ever evolving journeys of return towards our True Essence. Might we be softer with ourselves and more surrendered to the flow of Grace in even the most challenging revolutions of the turning wheel?
What does the word “Return” call forth in you?
I look forward to pondering it, breathing it and moving in it with you.
