The Moon Bestows Light
The moon bathes in the reflected glow of
Rejoicing in the light and warmth
Softening her cold rocky skin
She becomes a beacon to the night traveler
A sign of hope and joy.
How precious is this light, so golden, illuminating and healing in the dark sea of space.
How human it would be for her to grasp it tightly
Take it down to her rocky depths and somehow try to hold it Forever.
Yet she surrenders the light without hesitation.
Warmed and comforted herself
She is free to share her greatest gifts
Bestowing her serene bounty upon us
On planet Earth, her grateful people.
We too, are free to give away that which we hold dear.
Yet we fear the empty space that may result
Deprived of our greatest treasures
We think we may never be fulfilled again.
Mindfully opening our hearts
The space created in giving
is instantly filled with something deeper
Beautifully sad and joyous at once.
A profound connection to the one who receives
An openness to the bounty all around us.
The moon sends her light but she is never bereft.
The sun loves her eternally.
She will never lack.
Breathing in I am open to the present
Breathing out I am aware.
Breathing in I am grateful to receive
Breathing out I am happy
Breathing in I connect with generosity
Breathing out I feel free to give.
Breathing in I am grateful for my greatest gifts
Breathing out I intend to give them away
Breathing in I am open
Breathing out, I am fulfilled.
