Super Moon: Is It Saying Anything?

“Nothing will solve your heartbreak,
your soul-ache or take your pain away.
Nothing save getting to the source of the sore.

What happens far too often in life is
when we have a malady we look
for a solution to its symptom.

Instead of dealing with the cause of the condition directly
we chase phantom feelings and end up spent.
We go to the ends of the earth, build cases of blame against innocent victims,
retreat from life’s lessons, refuse to grow, refuse to let go
and refuse the only things that can cure our cray.

Go to the source.

Get to the root of an issue and to the heart of the matter.
But you’ve got to be brave.
You’ve got to outsmart your complexes,
because once you are caught in them,
the hardest thing to do is to name them.

Complexes rise up in disguise.
They trick us into thinking an illusion is the stone cold truth.
They wrap themselves around us, smothering our logic.
They paralyze our problem-solving skills.

And they are the only way into the truth of what we have to sort through.

Our complexes hold a tremendous amount of energy
and if we can dismantle them, then they become less of a threat
and a great source of self-knowledge.

Get to the core of a childhood wound,
or psychological situation that is both
holding you back and holding a great
amount of your energy hostage.

Meditate on the true nature and source
of anything that arises and watch
just how quickly you can get to healing
and then onto living.”

Eclipse of the Super Moon

i sat in peace, calm and still
while whirling around me
excited and thrilled

the people stirred, woke up
and looked outside at the moon
hanging serene in the sky and unchanged

pictures were snapped, clickity clak
and they all just reduced the moon
to a small dime, or a teardrop of light

and the darkness moved over
(it always does that, it’s not new)
and the moon simply gave way

and yielded itself, and swam down beneath
and just held its moon-breath
and just pretended death

until everything got bored and
swirled on away and the people
saw other squirrels to spend time on

well, i just sat where i was
with the moon in my heart
and her light in my soul

and she is always full
and her wine always mine
never eclipsed by anything

in between her
and where I stand here
inside of her hearttumblr_nuso16lJkp1rr74i9o1_500
