We are living in Deep times. For anyone feeling the weight of this point between Eclipses I hope that this beautiful piece of music helps you to Be. An Ending (Ascent) by Brian Eno has been a beloved piece of music for many years and I've played it many circles and meditations. I remember reading an interview with Brian Eno about the creation of his album, Apollo Atmospheres and Soundtracks, and he said he remembered watching the moon landing as a child and felt interrupted by all of the commentary and chatter. And so he created the soundtrack he would have liked to have heard to accompany this memory.
I think that's a beautiful way to re-light the past. And perhaps that is something we can also do now. With an open heart, we can step out of the painful judging of the past and see it in a new way with a deeper understanding, we can give it a beautiful soundtrack, a different atmosphere - even if it was a difficult time. Not all of our past can be dropped or chopped away, sometimes it is easier to integrate it in a different way or reframe it. We have a tendency to see the past as only good or bad experiences.
There are changes happening now that are vital and needed but that doesn't mean it is easy. Tony and I have been on our own journey with Death and we are only now feeling the light returning as everything gets birthed again. In the passing of our familiar, Rory, 2 weeks ago we have experienced such a wave of grief but on the other side of the grieving has been an illumination of what is truly sacred and important to us. And it has brought us closer - we are falling deeper in love with each other. This growing love is helping to give Rory's passing a different 'atmosphere'. What if his passing was his last great gift to us? What if this time is the midwifing of the best that is in us all?
Oceans of love to you all as we quest in the deep together. I hope this heart-opening music brings you some sweet relief x
