As we journey from yesterday’s Quarter Moon to next week’s Blue Moon in Aquarius, our greatest challenge is to remain centred and in contact with the stillness which exists at our heart. There are many ways we can be distracted from it, pulled away by the promise of success or the fear of failure; by powerful emotion or seductive sensation; by challenges to our own peace and well-being from the outside world.
In modern life we seem to have travelled so far from this place within that finding our way back can feel like a lifetime’s work and more. And yet…the stillness waits, its gently beating heart forever calling us home. It never gives up. Never writes us off. It just waits, ready to embrace us in every moment that we turn towards it, exhaling everything that has stood between us and releasing all that keeps us hooked into the dramas of the everyday world.
Now is the time to turn towards this stillness, relaxing into it, surrendering ourselves, our thoughts and feelings to it. No matter how far from it we may feel we have drifted it is, in fact, right here, right now, in every moment. No journey is necessary. Quite the opposite, in fact. The key is to stop journeying, step out of the motion and into the eye of the storm which is forever still and calm.
No matter what emotional debris may be swirling around us, no matter how huge the pieces of flying rubble we must dodge in our everyday lives, for just one moment, a single second, we can step into the stillness and just be, thinking nothing, judging nothing, planning and fearing nothing. Just here, now, breathing, being, in the silence.
This silence is calling us now, more than ever. It reminds us that deep within it lives all the answers we will ever seek, all the strength we will ever need and all the wisdom that has ever been realised. This stillness connects us all: past, present and future. It is the melting pot of consciousness out of which we are each born as individual sparks of the Divine. It is you and me in our most pure form: stillness and light. It is where we meet, naked of our individuality, clothed only in that which connects us as a web throughout time and space.
As we approach the coming Blue Moon tensions may rise, energies fragment and sensitivities run high. But none of this need stop us from connecting in that stillness, you and me, everyone, coming together in a place of silence which we can find within ourselves to connect us with each other.
‘Remember’ the heavens tell us today, ‘no matter what may be happening around and within you, at your deepest core you are Still, you are Light, you are Love, you are Wisdom. These are not qualities you have, they are what you are, each one of you. They are your very essence, and that essence is calling you home’.
Sending much love out to everyone today and hoping to meet you in the Stillness.
