The theme tonight is fire, death and rebirth, the power of three and the power of persistence, of never giving up………..just as love never stops or runs out. Anger, resentment, jealousy, pride and arrogance, even sorrow eventually will run out, but love just keeps on going. So if you can tap into that ocean which is always here you have become one with a power that is about as renewable as energy gets!
“The lover who leans upon the beloved’s response, his love is like the flame that needs oil to live; but the lover who stands on his own feet, is like the lantern of the sun that burns without oil.”
Hazrat Inayat Khan.
My beloved left a fire set for me to light as he would not be home until late, I treasure his delight in contributing to my happiness and enjoy a good fire so I set fire to paper before it was dark. All seemed well and I thought the fire was taking well but alas it failed, I girded my loins and mustered some fuel and managed to find a flame but again it seemed to die. After the third time I had almost given up but as I gazed at the fire I saw there was a bed of coals and the smaller log was glowing. I blew upon it and flames licked up, I coaxed the hot coals to deliver the heat that would finally get my fire going, the juices of my creativity that have been brewing in this lovers nest.
Oh what fun to explore the pathways of consciousness and connection and to share that with other beings, fellow seekers on the path of bliss and self-love. As we approach the Winter Solstice it is time to consider what you may be ready to shed, to let go of in the darkness of the longest night of the year, transforming into a rebirth as a new day dawns. But before that we have a Sagittarius Full Moon, the adventurous traveller and explorer of different realities inner and outer. The optimist who will always see the world as an exciting place to discover and who is therefore much more likely to be able to navigate turbulent times.
And we are living in tumultuous times, the possibility for positive change has never been so full even as we seem to see the dark forces triumphing over the poor and the helpless. Use your imagination to link with the powerful energies we are a part of and help us all to create the world we all want to live in, all of a sudden one day it will be here and there will be nothing that the ignorant can do about it. And perhaps even they will wake at the last, evolution ensures that we all will wake and flow through the process that eventually returns us to the unity that we have come from.
So be it, so be it, so be it.
