Well, it’s been awhile. I guess that I couldn’t keep my promise to write every new and full moon. My last post was at the beginning (new) of the third Moon. It is now the end of the fourth moon cycle. It’s not that bad. I haven’t missed a moon yet. If you want to check out the details of each moon all you have to do is go to the archives. The early ones are very detailed about the moon’s truth and alignment wisdom. This year I’m writing a bit more about how I am personally and philosophically handling the moon’s intelligence as I go through the everyday aspects of life. I don’t want these blog posts to be long-winded. I like them short and sweet. So I apologize upfront for its length.
As you know from my last blog posts, life-changing events happened to me at the beginning of the year which has had a profound impact on the way I see and move right now. Life is swelling with possibility and yet, I proceed with caution. Shortly, I will be moving to a different country for a few months. My only thoughts have been to immerse myself in the language, customs, foods, way-of-life, state and government institutions, arts and neighborhood scenes, and its geo-political relationship in world affairs. The second driving force for me has been to improve my health so that I am fit and keen when I arrive. I want to be vibrant and engaging. Consequently, I have completely revamped the way I eat and devouring research via cookbooks and the current happenings on the health scene. All the time, I have been weighing the newly acquired knowledge against what I know about my body and self; how I respond, and what makes me feel good. After one month of intense recipe testing, food combining, and exercising, I have a new body. It feels really good. All of the little internal pains that used to nag me are gone. Also, my resiliency is improving. It’s quite remarkable and I am very happy about this change for the better. I still have a lot to learn. I am someone who loves variety which has its own learning curve.
I chose LOVE as my guiding word for the year and I feel that everything is pointing toward me. I am discovering that Love of self must come first. I have never truly loved myself. I mean really given myself the confidence to listen to what is happening inside of me: How are all of those forces speaking, what are they saying and am I really listening? This year I am being forced to do precisely that. It is both strange and exhilarating. (As a side note I hope you know that I am not talking about the petty, selfish love of self. I am talking about the kind of self-love that happens after you let go of any artifice, structure, power, or gain. I am not that important, just a voyager.)
Well, being at Oneness and trusting what you see (especially inside) is quite the accomplishment. I think that I’ll smile for a bit because it was worth all the effort. Thank you for your grace, Looks Far Woman. Thank you to All My Relations for hearing my prayer of wholeness.
‘Till next time, Dear Readers.
