So the invitation on this full moon is to remember and honor your own innate wholeness - what the yogis called Purnam. And no matter how partial you may seem throughout the different cycles of your life and your living, to remember that you remain whole and complete throughout it all. Tonight remember, that you are something so much more than the partial illuminations that are often reflected on the surface of your being. Tonight go out and gaze at the beautiful, magical, mysterious full moon and know that you too are whole, always have been and always will be.
So we remember and honor this fullness now before it's too late. Let's be honest, most of us spend most of our days reinforcing the partial view of ourselves and others. We forget all the time and offer ourselves and this world our doubt, our fear, our sense of lack, of not enough. Through all of the little bits of life lessons, through reasonability and perceived responsibility we chip away at the deep knowing of our infinite brilliance and the magnificence of this life. Through life's 10 billion circumstances that build one on top of the next, we tend to begin sidestepping our abundance, our grace and our joy and we excuse ourselves from our light and we live a little smaller than we were meant.
We have been forgetting for a long, long time... From all of the times we we were unheard or unseen as a child, because the business and challenges of life got in the way of the ones that we loved and looked up to - we forgot just a little how worthy we are.
From all of the times people treated us with cruelty because of the hardness of their own life, of their own hearts - we forgot just a little how brilliant and amazing we are.
From all of the times we fell flat on our face in front of the world, or our friends, families, colleagues - we forgot just a little how courageous and capable we are.
From all of the messes and mistakes that we've made, and we have all made so many, we've buried ourselves under a pile of shame - and we forgot just a little how human we are. How powerful compassion can be and the potency of forgiveness.
From all of the times life punched us in the gut so hard that it took our trust in good, our trust in God, our trust in the greater unfolding of things away - we forgot just a little how resilient we are.
From the barrage of messaging that we ingest that questions our beauty, our intelligence, our value, our safety - we forgot how much more than enough we all are. How potent our potential, and we began to question the direction of our hearts and our infinite capacity to fulfill our highest potential.
And so we show up with paint on our skin, fear in our thoughts, anger in our words and holes in our hearts. Trying so hard to fix it: our image. To judge it: ourselves and each other. To hide it: our shame of falling short. Trying so hard to find it: our way back home. To remember the qualities of our innate fullness so we can stop feeding ourselves and the world our excuses, and begin to offer up the wholeness of our love.
So let this be the night of that remembrance. Let this be the very moment of knowing that continues to infinitely unfold. Go out and look at the moon and see the reflection of your own wholeness. Close your eyes and take the moon into your heart, and your mind to the fullness of the breath of you, the very life of you. Get so quiet and so still that you can sense even beyond the waxing and waning of your own breath. Get so near your truth and rest awhile in the company of your unbridled spirit. Remember the innate qualities of your resounding soul.
In the remembrance of your infinite abundance, a voice, the call of your soul. A voice that has been there since you took your first breath and will be there until your very last. The voice of a potential that could become fulfilled or go unfulfilled, whose fate lies in your hands, in this very moment. Listen close and remember what it is that you live for, why it is that you are here in this life.
Then the wisdom of this unshakable potential begs the question; "who am I not to shine?" Know that now is the time, now is always the time to respond to that call. .Remember that you are the one, you were always the one, to be who you were meant to become. In fact you were made for this.
