As I walked at ocean’s edge to view the sunset (this sunset), I experienced a moment I would like to share with you.
All week, my heart had been asking to walk under the moon and stars. It had been fairly chilly (in the 40’s F) in the pre-dawn moon and stars period and fairly windy (around 40mph winds) in the twilight moon and stars period. My mind said “not optimal“, so I did not honor this whisper.
But, it persisted.
Each evening, I walk at ocean’s edge to experience sunset. Well, this evening, it was a bit chilly and windy, but I wished to honor my commitment to be present to sunset.
There was a moment during twilight in which sun was setting behind the islands, the colors reflected in the water; crescent moon was smiling down from above; stars were twinkling and I could begin to pick out various constellations; ocean waves were gently lapping the beach.
It felt *magical*, powerful, potent.
I felt vulnerable yet comfortable.
I felt unworthy yet incredibly deserving.
I felt afraid and fearless.
I don’t know “how” to be in such a situation (would this be pure love?), but I feel if I breathe it all in, I am breathing in the essence of the universe…in those moments I am the essence…and in the moments that follow I am me, with essence.
I am sharing this with you, here in this space, because there are moments that mind says are “less than optimal” and we listen, because that affirms our doubts. And feels “safe”.
But what if, in those moments that mind says “not possible”, we had a moment like this one to reflect upon…a moment where heart says “yes, please” and we vest presence where we are, with what we have, and we are rewarded with this (love, peace, joy, spirit)…that sometimes feels so elusive yet is right there, the moment we open our hearts to it.
I don’t share with you because I think I have it all figured out. (I don’t…I keep coming back to the same answer…be love…but I don’t always know “how” to do that, especially in mainstream).
I share with you, because I feel that together, we encourage and inspire each other to continue creating and connecting as we move through World, exploring and experimenting with way.
My #sixwords from this past week.
surfing the transformational wave of love
trails of stardust in her footsteps
folded into warmth / wrapped in love
crescent moon smiles / while sun sets
vulnerability and trust / a potent combination
blowing a kiss / on the wind
May I ask, where do you meet *Divine*? And, how does it feel when you meet? When you share, we learn.
Much peace and abundant love,
Reminder: Linger. Savor. Relish.
