“Hope is passion for what is possible.”
~Soren Kierkegaard, Danish philosopher, theologian, and author
Lunar energy has been intense this week! Have you felt it? We’ve experienced a Full Corn Moon instead of a Harvest Moon. Why is it different? Typically, at this time, we’re ready to harvest the seeds of what ideas and visions that we planted during the Spring. In addition to this the energy of the Full Corn Moon brings up and accentuates sensitivities, emotions, and creates openings to new possibilities. It only appears once every 3 years so I hope you’ve been practicing good self care! You may have wondered why things seemed different given all that’s been going on this year with change and uncertainty. Your emotions may have felt like they were running wild!
I’ve been feeling more optimistic and hopeful in spite of the intensity. Kierkegaard tells us that hope is the fuel for what’s possible. It feels like the spark of hope within me has ignited and is stronger than ever. I’ve noticed that I don’t feel triggered as much considering the divisiveness, uncertainty, tension, and negativity that’s happening in the world right now.
Why? I’ve chosen to spend more time in my inner world accessing available insights and wisdom. I’ve chosen to take a leap of faith, so to speak, and focus on what I can change. Change begins with me. For me, love is the greatest transformer of all and I find myself returning to the source of my being which is love. St. Augustine of Hippo, Theologian, philosopher, and bishop has said, “ There is no love without hope, no hope without love, and neither love nor hope without faith.” Hope and love are intertwined and faith, hope and love are foundational as new possibilities are explored and pursued.
I’ve talked about seeing the world and situations through the lens of love haven’t I? I’m dusting off my “love glasses” and using them more often and more consciously. If you dust yours off what will you see through the lens of love? Will the world and/or your experiences be different? I’ve noticed my reactions to what I’m seeing are different. I’m not invested in what’s going on emotionally, as much, and I find that my compassionate heart is emerging. I see how I want to respond to what’s happening around me more clearly. This way I can become the “best me” that’s possible!
Maya Angelou, American poet and civil rights activist reminds us that, “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” Love is who we are at our core essence. It’s eternal and our super power! Are you ready to use your super power and jump, leap, and arrive as you explore the many new possibilities that are available to you? What are you willing to explore and create?
