THE MOON CAST AN OMINUS PRESENCE
On October 31st we had a blue Moon at the furthest point from the Earth named a micro Moon this bring a lot of emotions , and feelings on edge, like if we need more at this time of uncertainty, pandemic, economical, and political upheaval, and events coming out of nowhere, exacerbating nerves already on edge.
Usually I got no idea what my next post will be about until the moment I seat to write a new post, today my problem it’s not what to write about it, but to try to say as little as possible, without missing something that may be important and meaningful as well.
First the Holiday with Halloween, All Saints Day, and Day of the Death in a row, that today on our globalized World seem to amalgamate into a single thing, at least on my neck of the woods.
So be weary of heighten emotional states of mind, try to be cheerful, avoid anger if things do not go the way you want them to be, keep in mind you just have to adjust and work your mindset to be happy regardless, remember it’s for you to change your attitude, by accepting things as they are, sure you also can start a way to change the situations you consider they need change, but do it in a peaceful state of mind, not in a angry, and destructive way.
The most important thing, be ready for change.
The idea of providing some verses of Rumi as our guide for this trying times come to mind.
“You have woken up late, lost and perplexed but don’t rush to your books looking for answers, pick a flute instead and let your Heart play.”
“What comes will go, what is found, will be lost again. But what you are is beyond coming and going, and beyond description.”
“Yesterday I was clever and wanted to change the World. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.”
“Half of life is lost in charming others. The other half is lost through anxieties caused by others. Leave this play, you have played enough.”
“I choose to love you in silence… For in silence I find no rejection. I choose to love you in my loneliness, for in my loneliness no one owns you but I.
I choose to adore you from a distance, for distance shield us both from pain.
I choose to imprison you on my thoughts, for in my thoughts freedom is for me to decide.
I choose to kiss you in the wind, for the wind is gentler than my lips.
I choose to hold you only in my dreams, for in my dreams there is no end.”
Be Lost In The Call
“Lord, said David, since you do not need us,why did you create these two worlds?
Reality replied: O prisoner of time,
I was a secret treasure of kindness and generosity,
and I wished this treasure to be known,
so I created a mirror: its shining face, the heart;
its darkened back, the world;
The back would please you if you’ve never seen the face.
Has anyone ever produced a mirror out of mud and straw?
Yet clean away the mud and straw,
and a mirror might be revealed.
Until the juice ferments a while in the cask,
it isn’t wine. If you wish your heart to be bright,
you must do a little work.
My King addressed the soul of my flesh:
You return just as you left.
Where are the traces of my gifts?
We know that alchemy transforms copper into gold.
This Sun doesn’t want a crown or robe from God’s grace.
He is a hat to a hundred bald men,
a covering for ten who were naked.
Jesus sat humbly on the back of an ass, my child!
How could a zephyr ride an ass?
Spirit, find your way, in seeking lowness like a stream.
Reason, tread the path of selflessness into eternity.
Remember God so much that you are forgotten.
Let the caller and the called disappear;
be lost in the Call.”
Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
