Total Solar Eclipse–The Illumination

Today compels me to sit with the eclipse fully in process, and begin writing.

The world is waiting for the Moon to cross over in front of the Sun and bring night to day.

For me, I am experiencing something else, as well.  If I place myself, between the warmth of the presence of the sun and wisdom of the presence of the moon, I can experience the yin and the yang, the divinely feminine and the balanced masculine gently revealing themselves in this story of the cosmos.

Inside I do not feel the coming of the darkness, instead placing myself between the presence of the Sun and the Moon, I feel the moment has finally come where the radiating love of the Sun will illuminate the beauty and the wisdom of the Moon between each other.

I experience that when the skies go dark, the living wisdom of the universe will appear and be illuminated by the light and love of the cosmos from a different perspective.  It feels quiet.  It feels large.  It feels deep and profound….to see the stars and the night sky in the day, not because the eclipse is bringing darkness.  Instead because the light is delighting and honouring the appearance of what is divinely raw and beautifully feminine as a balance.

It is a moment in time and timelessness, where the living wisdom that births, nurtures, and tends to all of life, and the living, has the potential to be experienced, inwardly and outwardly, by the lessening of the sun, but most importantly by the awareness, the honouring and the illumination of the Sun’s consciousness willingly kneeling in great awe and wonder as the splendour and dignity of the Leo Queen appears, bringing a new presence and new realms and aspects of infinite possibilities.

We are not entering into darkness, without the sun’s enduring rays of consciousness, instead we are entering into the moment where the majestic living wisdom of the cosmos, in all its fullness, is bestowing her presence, and being illuminated for those who have the eyes to see her.

She is full of clear intentions, depths of living wisdom, cycles of time and infinite heartbeats that bring kindness and love, care and dignity, to the daily life of being and to existence itself through her beauty of flowing freely through space and time, creating, birthing and sustaining life and the living.

The crowned relationship of the sun and the moon, consciousness and wisdom, has so much energy and love, that to look upon it directly would bring blindness by the light.

Today, I too, kneel in awe and wonder, in deep devotion to this Living Wisdom in the universe.  I take my sun’s light and bring illumination, not to the dark, but upon this breath-taking presence, which I adore and committed my life to, long, long ago.

May she take her seat at the round tables of discussions, may she stand tall in her inner beauty and strength being acknowledged and may she begin participating in our world full of ease and swiftness.

May our souls be illuminated by our spirits.  May we all take our seats in the circle of the heart, with others.

May we rise with truth, beauty and wisdom to love and care for this place we live called Earth, each other and all that is living.

May we love the light and warmth and living wisdom of the universe and kneel with clear intention, to serve and be aware and commit willingly to abide together in peace.

May we illuminate each other’s souls.  Love the stars. And partake in the radiating love of the world.

From our perspective on Earth, we could experience the sun go through a complete moon cycle visually.  It went from a round sun, to a crescent sun, to a new sun.  Some photos I took as it reflected itself in nature.  Crescent suns everywhere!


New Beginnings

Today is the day, to begin, writing, to introduce my thoughts, my feelings, inspirations, imaginations, and just simple everyday observations with all of you, so that we can begin to hold open that place and space, those living environments, those hearths of relationships and sanctuaries of living and lived wisdom,  where conversations unfold, cups of tea are shared and friendships ignite.

Today is the day because there are questions hovering all around me, like twinkling stars.  What does it mean to create a raw foods, living wisdom lifestyle?  What is raw?  What is living wisdom?

Ah…raw. To be raw, to me, is to be tender and vulnerable, clear and sturdy, uncluttered and simply natural.  To be raw is to be unclothed of the superfluous, noticing things just as they are, in their natural states….be it fruit, or vegetables, human beings, or nature.  To be living raw is to see the seed, the stem, the leaves, the flower and the fruit all at once, understanding it is part of a living cycle of time and growth, flourishing and transcending the physical to turn around and begin again, as a living seed, creating life…..inwardly and outwardly.

What is living wisdom?  It is the stream of beauty that guides, quickens and awakens awareness and the seed of becoming fully human in the present moment.  It is the essence within the flow of life that is always present in the growing tip and rootedness of being alive. A living wisdom whose grace and tenderness embraces us and  allows us to learn how to facilitate, nurture and create a raw foods, living wisdom lifestyle.

Imagine two feet planted on the ground of this Earth, with arms raised high above one’s head outstretched receiving all this beauty, this warmth, this awareness inspiring us to enter in and take up a new choreography of creating.  Imagine planting a living seed in the soils of this home called Earth and understanding how it grows unfettered by suppression and well-nourished by the substances of life, this living life.

Today, I begin tending the soil to plant.  I begin holding open the space to share, to explore and to be together in the joy of raw and living wisdom in all its forms and flows, substances and essences, and in all its beauty and profundity.  Thank you for joining me.

With so much gratitude….Jill LaBelle Sophie
