Full Moon

It’s that time of the evening where the full moon hangs low over the horizon … where are you all as we gaze up at the moon and what are your thoughts this evening?

Chanting and Moving slowly with mindful reminders with sharpened concentration … the vibe is coming back – what lay dormant over this winter, weighed down by fears and anxiety that could not be quelled with simple reasons alone. We are all on the same boat; we are all on this mother Earth …

Full moon is a time we replenish and fill up with wonder … marveling that in spite of so many losses and tragedies and grief, we still have the capacity to round out the jagged edges and bring to full circle all that wonder into fulfillment of our dreams and hopes. Maybe not this cycle and maybe many moons from now but … I feel in the air, in the sky, in the moon above that … this challenging time is clearly brougt about to help us in the long run. Like this full moon light, many things hidden in the dark shadows are … revealed. Now, what do we do with all that’s been revealed – surely they are not all pretty sights – there’s the good, the bad and the ugly – fully revealed whether you like it or not. Now that much in the hidden corners in the dark shadows are LIT and so much revealed about the world, about US, what are we to do? Go back to our old ways when this is over? Do we go right back to our old ways of seeing and doing and … hiding or do we live that AUTHENTIC truth in alignment to our higher Self. I wonder.

ABC it’s easy as DO-RE-MI, 123

Karaoke anyone? How about some dance steps to go along?

“A B C, It’s easy as
1 2 3, as simple as
Do re mi, A B C, 1 2 3″

Jackson 5 – of course ! jingle keeps going in my head !!

“Baby You & Me !”

“Let me tell you what it’s all about
Reading, writing, arithmatic
Are the branches of the learning tree
But without the roots of love everyday girl
Your education ain’t complete” – ABC by Jackson 5

Seriously – “without the roots of love” in learning, nothing is complete for sure …

Often a reference is made as to the “ABC” of Yoga Therapy … in other words, the foundation of yoga therapeutics. I’m happy to go over them in very very cursory manner as take each of them, we can spend a lifetime on mastering:

A for Asana or Action/Movement

B for Breath

And

C for … what ?

What do you think? Any guesses?

Will go over them should there be any interest…
