Poem for the New Moon 2/16.

Who are you?  I asked the stars.

And they twinkled and burned and danced in fluttering patterns against the backdrop of darkness.

And so did I.

Who are you? I asked the clouds.

And they drifted and hung and swayed in lilting rhythms across the silvery sky.

And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked the rain.

And it fell with a heavy sigh in orchestrated unison collapsing to the earth in complete surrender.

And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked the sun.

And it blazed with glory and might, its powerful song arcing across the wide open curvature of the planet, in a single note.  And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked the moon.

And it radiated its beacon of glistening light in undulating waves embracing all of creation with a long slow exhale.

And so did I.

Who are you?  I asked myself.

And I melted into the earth and surrendered to the sky.

And the stars became my eyes;

And the clouds, my thoughts;

And the rain, my tears;

And the sun, my belly;

And the moon my, heart.

And so am I.

Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today!

Remember.  remember a piece of who you are.  before you were told what to be or how to act or who to please.

Remember.  remember the things you used to do that engaged you in a place where you lost all track of time and the world and its worries melted away around you.

Remember.  remember the moments of connection you’ve had through your life. the people who touched you. the places that resonated you.  the memories that filled you.

Remember.  remember pure joy, how it overflowed from your being.  remember how you expressed that joy.  how you let it out to fill the world.

Remember. remember where you’ve been, who you’ve walked with, what you have accomplished.

Remember.  remember who you are.

Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today!

Remember who you are.  Who YOU are.  Who you are here & now.  Who you are in the present tense, the present moment.  This WHO, this YOU, is exactly what is needed right now.  In this re-membering, look our for where you are stuck, lost, confused.  Look out for those blind spots.  Sometimes it helps to look around you, to ask a trusted friend, a partner, a family member… to help you see yourself more clearly. Sometimes you just have to look in the mirror, close the door behind you, and just stare and wait.

It is of utmost importance right now that we all be honest about where and how we best serve this world, this time, this community, this self.  It is too too easy in this space to compare ourselves to others, to think we need to be doing something different.  Look again, think again, clear again and find what is here, now.

To do this you must be willing to put aside what you might have thought of as your dreams, ambitions, plans, intentions, particularly if they always seem to involve some erroneous “future” (5 years from now I will be…?  10 years?  15?).  Put aside what you think you are working “towards” and instead focus on what is here, what has ALWAYS been here, for you, now.

In this investigation you may find many blocks, constrictions.  They may surface as stubbornness, passion, anxiety, wishful thinking, vision. Can you see them ALL as blocks? As interferences with the truth of this moment?  As clouding your ability to discern?  Or are you attached to some of these?

Heres your work then.  Laid out for you.  One by one, let them go. Imagine them perhaps, as leaves on a tree, and as they drop what are you left with?

The bare trunk that is YOU.  This is the gift of Winter.  This the gift of Now.

Question of the Day:  Who are you?
