I sit on the sofa and watch my beautiful, frail 21 year old Maine Coon cat, Stormy, curled in the blue wingback chair. He is so tiny, so emaciated. He is dying. We all are ultimately, but his long years have finally caught up with him. It has been a day of trying to make him comfortable with pain medications. I have been in consultation with my home vet who will be here tomorrow to assess Stormy and most likely we will help ease his transition Sunday afternoon. My heart is heavy, so I concentrate on breathing deeply. To watch my angelic furry child sleep, his belly rising and falling slowly, is a meditation. I go deeply into a state of being. There is no more to do in this moment. Stormy and I are as all of us, Children of the Universe. It is often in the twilight of life, before the great transition into the next world, that we come face to face with that peace, one of neither grasping nor reaching. I look into the tired emerald green eyes of my Stormy, and I see the cosmos, infinite, timeless. As Stormy approaches death, I surrender to being, not doing. To loving, not coveting. To stopping, not starting. I know the spirit of my beautiful boy is entwined with mine. Now is all we have. Now is the greatest gift we are given....
This week has been a challenging one, the subtle tendrils of despair making their appearance like the delicate buds of Spring at long last giving way to the blooms of flowers in New Hampshire. It was Kahlil Gibran in " The Prophet," who wrote, "
"And he alone is great who turns the voice of the wind into a song made sweeter by his own loving."
Bright Blessings to all of you during this very magical time of year! As I type, the Pink Moon is on the rise, heralding rebirth, where here in the Northeast, the grasp of winter has finally receded, and the promise of flowers and greenery in bloom whispers sweetly into the night air. Tomorrow morning on April 4th, we have a Libra Lunar Eclipse, a very charged event indeed, a time for transformation, for purification and change! A time for action! This heavenly event coincides with this week's Positive Principle! We have been working up to this week of action! This is a week where we embrace our fears, feel the LOVE, and get things done! I realize that I have had my writing, singing and audition goals on hold because of fear in the past. This week, with the ever sage wisdom and guidance of Polly and Max, I am not letting fear paralyze me any longer in pursuing my vision! The songs and my manuscripts are written as are the query letters. Tonight I have embraced the magic of the waxing full moon to create a beautiful ritual where I am sending blessings and positive spells with my manuscripts and songs I wish to have published. We can all harness the power and magic of the moon, to manifest great things in our lives. We can not only put our intention out into the Universe, but follow through with specific steps daily so that we follow through with our intentions! To quote one of my favorite all time movies, " Almost Famous, " " It's all happening!"
