“In the Yogic tradition, the Equinox is seen as a day when one has the best possibilities of transcending the limitations and compulsions of one’s physical longings.” ~Sadhguru A Harvest Moon happens just before the Autumn Equinox, which signals the start of a new season, and the name is linked to a lag time between moonrise and sunset at this time of year. Hence, it's called 'Harvest' Moon.” The Harvest Moon also coincides with the astronomical arrival of autumn, marked by the Autumn Equinox on September 23 this year. The equinox occurs when the Sun is closest to the equator and crosses the celestial equator overhead at noon.
When we meet people, we are attracted to them, or not. it’s not just about gender or race, age or sexual attraction. There is this like an inner compass, that shows you, who is in your comfort zone and who isn’t. It is interesting to watch for your own to whom you respond positive or negative from the first you get.
There may be two people who have been dealt the same cards in life. Two individuals with all the same life circumstances. One is miserable, stressed out, and looks twenty years older than he is. The other is the happiest guy you could ever meet and looks twenty years younger than he is. How can this be? The answer is that it is not our life circumstances that make life difficult rather it is the attitude that we view our lives with. Those who are capable of seeing the humor in life and take life lightly will be able to do the best with the circumstances they have been given. We don’t all have the same sense of humor, as I discovered from an early age. The kind of humor that is at the cost of others always escaped me. Never could I understand why watching videos of others who fall and hurting themselves along the way could be perceived as humor. There is this way of laughing at the expense of someone, making fun of in a group. Humor is something very personal as well part of a group dynamic. To me the best way is to be able to laugh at myself, not taking myself to serious. This enables me to deal with situations and challenges in a more heart lightened way as well. Making jokes about serious events in order to create different more lightening energy. During all the turmoil life presents at times, it has helped me to remain my inner balance as well.
How is it we all yearn for the Summer to arrive when we live in those areas where we experience different seasons. The way we look at this time of year is colored by the way the 4 seasons work. It also represents our holiday season in the western world. It will be experienced in a totally different way when you live in countries with a rainy season and flooding, or in desert countries, where the temperature is always high during the daytime. In order to experience the impact, the change of the season has on your own system, you must be aware of the place you are living. After the Spring where every plant, a tree is coming back to life with flowers and leaves, we move into summertime. With the harvest time as well for the farmers of their fields of grain. Or the harvest of grapes to become wine. Summer is something we experience because of the temperature rises.
The moment I decided to write about dignity, thoughts were following themselves up about the meaning it has for me. It has to do with being honorable, respect and worthiness in my opinion. It also has to do with the way we perceive each other. Behaving with dignity, sometimes is challenging when we are feeling hurt or not understood. When people are tending to disrespect you, making you feel degraded, not worthy. It also has to do with the way we perceive ourselves. Self-worth is a quality, which makes it easier to respond with more calmness and respect. When people are treating you without respect for your efforts, or the work you do, how to respond to that. Is it possible to act with disrespecting yourself, and then when confronted with a situation, come out the other end with dignity? We sometimes can lose respect for someone we love and hold dear, caused by the way they act. When a loved one is facing addiction, for instance, acting out under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Judgment plays a big part in the way we look at ourselves as well as others. When we do something and feel ashamed about it afterward, we also face losing self-respect. Not being worthy to be loved or disrespected for the way we handle a situation like betraying a loved one. How to handle this with dignity?
Follow your heart's calling and
trust the hand of life to provide your needs.
Trust your steering mechanism of Heart-Knowing.
Open to receive, share your feelings, desires, and dreams.
Listening to the inner world and adjust your needs
Will bring in more and more excitement throughout the day.
Just enable the heart knowing to come to the forth
In order to learn to trust your inner gut and feelings.
Be open to receive whatever comes your way
Maybe through the nudges and follow up on them.
I believe it is all about learning to read the roadmap
Of your Self and the journey, the Soul has in mind.
These past few days were very intense with a deeply felt energy coming to the surface. Even though it has been addressed and partly healed, it still will be triggered by injustice and lack of respect and love. Images from all over the world about refugees, fleeing from their own country. Families falling apart caused by the turmoil that exists during the exodus it seems. It is not just Nature that is devastating, ripping families apart. It is some kind of Universal wound we are carrying through the lifetimes we share. Going back through history, we always come across this one universal wound, betrayal. Micro and Macro cosmos, it is a deeply felt emotional wound. Surfacing in so many ways, so many different faces. Sometimes hard to discover, other times it is so obvious. What does it tell us? How come history seems to keep on repeating itself? What is the root cause in this story and how can we heal this universal wound.? Many questions popping up these past few days. Seeing the similarities from within as well outward, conflicting others when it is about the way people want to manifest themselves.
There is a difference between dreaming and reality for most of us. Yet in these past weeks, my dreams are creating a reality of their own in such a wonderful way, it lingers throughout my day to day business. By doing so I am dreaming my reality in a totally different manner because I am in tune with the invisible world that is not seen by everyone. My dream last night was a great example. I was walking hand in hand with my beloved at the camping in France at Lac de Bairon. We were greeted by a group of people we have come to know over the past 30 years. They welcomed us with open arms, at least that was my first impression. They gave me warm embraces and telling me how sorry they are for my loss. I noticed Herman walking down to the waterline and was surprised to realize they were only seeing me. For to me, he was as real as ever and the situation was confronting as well confirming. Walking between the lines of the different dimensions enabled me to be aware of his presence as real as ever, yet not for everyone to see. This is something that made me realize as well as how different people are experiencing their reality as well the way people react to me from their perspective.
Falling in love is like a free fall, you lose all your normal perspective just by looking at someone, each changes around you, you have trouble breathing normally, your heart pounds and you get butterflies in your stomach. The feeling can be overwhelming, almost intoxicating, or it can be like a deep resonance, ringing in your ears and feeling the rhythm between two souls, beating as one.
