The skies here are sullen but not threatening. My prayers, along with so many others, have been directed to those in the path of the hurricane which has swept devastation across the Carribean Islands and eastern coast of America. It will take weeks before these places return to any form of normality. One hopes that the message that we are all interdependent takes root amongst the few who still hold on to old paradigms of 'survival of the fittest' and 'the winner takes all'. We can no longer survive in a separatist world.
Separate from what and from whom one may well ask. Tonight of all nights that is a particularly good question as we celebrate the thinning of the veils between the worlds - those of this so called reality and those of the greater dimensions that operate just beyond our five senses but can be tuned into by anyone who has consciously developed their sixth sense.
It is a time to remember our ancestors, a time to give thanks for the harvest and the positive things that have happened during the year and also a time to start to look deeply inwards and reflect. As the season now slips into winter our inner worlds become as real, alert and alive as the expansive outer world that we inhabit during the long days and warm nights.
Tonight be thankful for all that has made you who you are today and celebrate the goodness around you. Spooky as it might sound, be aware that the ancestors know your path and are watching over you. Don't forget to thank them for their support and guidance!
