Moon in Mind ©10/19/2016
Moon, the sun’s mirror, balances and harmonizes
Just as I dare say the heart’s mirror, the mind does for the body.
Seemingly so separate,
Yet intertwined to ultimately be one in the same.
Representing the divine perfection of the Shiva and Shakti energies.
Illuminating light, soft beams kissing the beauty of darkness.
Caressing the surfaces while bringing light to the deepest darkest depths.
Casting light to presence of mind.
With each perceived stage of moon’s cycle from full to quarter, waxing to waning,
We are reminded of the mind’s view depending on the vantage point.
Perspective, Wisdom, Knowledge is shed upon those willing to circle all the way around.
The moon’s reflection glistens on the water
Lovingly spreading heightened illumination.
Just as one contemplates reflecting the light of the mind
Bouncing with such grace in the mirrors of others without force of ego.
Such powerful existence pulls on Earth’s fluids.
Cool calm ebbs and flows
Cleansing, rinsing, purifying the Mind.
The quiet of stillness flows strong and gentle.
Moon in Mind.
NOTE: Poem in response to contemplations from a passage on pg. 88-89 in The Truth Will Set You Free by Svarmi Purna. “These myths are not simple drama………. Do not be frightened; contemplation will not turn someone into a lunatic, but it might lead to more enlightened state.”
