The full moon inspires, it shines down on earth reflecting the intelligence of the universe for us to watch, capture and visit. The full moon is an idea that elicits meditations on joy. Have you ever heard anyone say that they do not like a full moon…there is no reason to dislike the moon, it is a compatriot of the human condition.
Like the moon we reflect the intelligence of the universe. We shine upon friends and family and loved-ones so that we might participate in illuminating their creativity, their love, their willingness to abandon suffering in order to meet joy on its terms. We are like the moon when we support a friend, help to light their way through darkness and help to return them to their own full moon selves.
The moon is a mistress of mindfulness. It shines on the current moment and in that current moment we are asked to forget all that is painful, all that we see as suffering and we are asked to embrace the moon and the moment in a loving entanglement between we and the universe. The moon is not a god, she reflects what God is in the universe.
She inspires us to want to be our best….she is content to be full every 29.6 days and during the remainder of her cycle, she is imperfect like we are….but every so often we are treated to the fullness of her glory and it reminds us that we have a fullness to our glory as well.
