eclipse musings

what an amazing feeling. chanting, as the moon is eclipsed. I swear I saw a shooting star. of course I made a wish. It was a big wish. But I have big dreams.

The stars never seemed so bright, as they danced around the moon. They must’ve known there was a show going on. The sky is clear and perfect for viewing, the longest night of the year, the brightest and darkest all in the same. I don’t know if it gets any more extraordinary than this. Perhaps if tomorrow there was a solar eclipse. I jest. But I cannot help but remark on this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Today, I began reading the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, and as I’ve come to know, there is no such thing as coincidence. I sat outside, bundled up, but it was even warmer than it has been, or maybe I’m warmer. I heard an airplane approaching. It looked as if it were falling out of the sky. It reminded me of a dream I had a few months back. I was sitting outside, a picnic scenario. Me, Emily and maybe some other people. In my dream it must’ve been the fourth of july. We were watching fireworks. All of a sudden, I realized the latest spectacular wasn’t a firework at all. It was an airplane exploding. It’s flaming pieces falling towards us. This could’ve been the end, and perhaps it was an end. I say that knowing nothing ever truly ends.

One thing I know about eclipses is that they are final, irreversible. Whatever is done around one, cannot be undone. They bring about dramatic changes, which is ironic but not. Change was the theme for 2010. So many situations were in flux; they continue to be. Here I am faced with yet another changing situation, my residence. I am hopeful that this move will be final, and that I will actually be settled.

I am thankful for moments like this where I can contemplate life, my purpose and the grand scheme. I feel so connected and I know this is only the beginning.

My wish is that everyone comes to realize their true nature, recognize and accept their power.

“There is one great truth on this planet: whoever you are, or whatever it is that you do, when you really want something, it’s because that desire originated in the soul of the universe. It’s your mission on Earth. And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”—The Alchemist

  1. That last quote from the Alchemist reminds me of this quote from the Bhagavad Gita “My eternal seed, Arjuna, is to be found in every creature. I am the power of the discrimination in those who are intelligent, and the glory of the noble. In those who are strong, I am strength, free from passion and selfish attachment. I am desire itself, if that desire is in harmony with the purpose of life”..I swear, I’ll have that thing memorized before I’ve read the bible through once.

    The Alchemist sounds increasingly splendid..looking forward to reading your other post about it.Corinne was really inspired by it as well when she was listening to it LoL

    The eclipse was brilliant. Unfortunately we here in Atlanta didn’t get to see the whole thing because the clouds rushed in. But I heard from a bird in Cali that when the moon became dark the stars were so apparent. And even though I couldn’t see them, I felt the cosmic influence. It’s a magnificent feeling to know that from ATL to Philly to Cali everybody was on the same frequency for a moment…and I guess in reality that’s how it always is…but moments like that there’s no denying it.

    That dream sounds epic. And it sounds like your interpretation of it is on point. I am continuously inspired and awed at how dreams can communicate truths in this really special, symbolic, magical way.

    Change was definitely the theme of 2010. And it didn’t have shit to do with Obama =oP It’s wonderful to be experiencing you let your light shine and I’m really pleased to be a part of this awesome thing we got going on with you.

    Much love.
