After seeing my first total solar eclipse🌑🌘🌕🌒🌑 This sense of mystery and wonder comes over me as we stare at the clear morning sky from this dry, rocky hill. Feeling the support of my homeland beneath me, I'm held by the inner boyency of the earth. I experience myself sitting in the stillness of my microcosm, Reflecting the response of the stillness occurring all around, as totality approached us. All of nature, the elements, animals and us on this physical plane grew more awake, alert to the presence of this astrological event that was about to occur. This led me to perceive the macrocosm that I was apart of and influenced.
I was reminded of the natural forces of the world. As nature moves, evolves and dies in perfect order and harmony, there is trust in it's ability to thrive and regenerate itself, bearing witness to the majesty and sheer beauty of everything, in all it's shades.
As totality took place, the land reflected the planets we observed. We sat in the moons shadow, enticed by the sphere of golden raise its all its artistry.
In this moment, non existence of time defeated the egos ability to distract the mind from presence, allowing that short moment of raw witnessing to feel like a lifetime, experiencing new realisations and sensations to become distilled in the mind.
The sun moved to shine its light down to us, sending its warmth and and energy.
My personal realisation and experience symbolised a sense of rebirth- To sit in stillness and darkness, allowing the shadows and pain of our past to be discovered and owned, displayed for us to bear witness to. An experience of duality. The contraction of the dark moon into the expansion of the sun light that follows. The rebirth of the sun as it shone on its own after being hidden. The bebirth of a new breath, new day, new experience, new sun or a new moon.
I cannot wait to be apart of another solar eclipse in all its power and magik!
