Embrace the Moonlight

I love the moon too much to be afraid of the night.


now is the time for me to set myself to rights,

it’s time to stop bemoaning my evil plight,

come out of the dark shadows into the light,

moonlight is better than the blackest of nights,

and that’s where I’ve been, cowering in fright.


There is no point in waiting until tomorrow, there is no mileage in procrastination, and mañana isn’t even English.  I need to take action this day.

There have been things in my life I have not understood, or have chosen not to understand, or have chosen to ignore ~ and these things are now coming out of the darkness of my deep subconscious into the light of my conscious awareness.

Recently it has all been a bit intense, and at times I’ve struggled through cognitive dissonance, not knowing who I am, or what I want from Life.  But I have been shocked from complacency by both my friend and my Goddess.  Today, I am blessed with a powerful and strange energy which has allowed me to make a brutally honest assessment of myself.

This intense, powerful, strange energy is allowing me to make changes within myself I have not previously had the power to achieve.

Yet, I know that any change I attempt to make from within my personality, my id, and my ego, should be for the greater good or it will never work.  I have had far too much help to be selfish and make changes that will only benefit myself.  But, as I improve mine own self, it will reflect in every aspect of my world and my life.

As I give to the world, so I shall receive in return.

As I walk from the darkness into the moonlight, my life and my world will change for the better.  I have realised that to cower in fear in the darkness is to stray from the true warrior’s path.  I thank my friend and my Goddess for that new awareness.

  7. Moon shadows (is that a song?) are beautiful. The light changes images and sometimes softens them. Embrace your shadows and allow us to meet you there.

    Moonlight and walks. Let’s go! 😍
