THE INNER FIRE

There are times when we burn.

We make outer fires warm us. To feed us. To nurture us.

 

We make inner fires to transform us.

To heal us. And to clear old, stagnant energy systems.

 

When we make inner fire, we enter the flames to heal.

To whole. To resurrect. To renew.

 

And there are many kinds of fire.

SAMHAIN

The darkness gathers

We breathe into the oncoming sleep

The life currents are slowing

We are asked to weep

 

Not for grief you understand

But to let everything go

We cannot take the past with us

All the old stories must go

 

The cosmic void awaits

Our courageous leap

Our souls in her hands

The great mother keeps

 

For the time to begin anew

Has come

No fear can exist

When we live as if we are one

DARKENING OF THE LIGHT

The light is fading.

 

As we approach the time of deep Winter in the Northern hemisphere, we are cocooned in darkness.

 

But darkness is not what we once thought it was.

 

As a new perspective on life emerges between us in these times of challenge where seeming polarities are fusing.

 

We are starting to see that what we once defined as ‘bad’ or ‘good’, ‘light’ or ‘dark’ are simply two sides of the same coin.

 

We cannot separate things as we once did.

 

This is the gift of chaos.
