The moon sent a lure out last night, technically speaking early this morning, but I kind of think the next day starts when the sun shows it’s face in the east. Anyway at about 12:15 AM I got the urge to go out and view the eclipse. I slowly got up feeling my heart racing , feeling spry, as I made my way downstairs leaving my warm bed. I made a stop at the bathroom, my bladder screaming at me, before I continued on my way . As I hit the wood floor, at the bottom of the stairs ,my “Bunionator,” the gizmo I where on my left foot to alleviate the bunion there made a tap tappa tap noise as I hobbled along. In my excitement it had escaped my notice that I still had the contraption on. You aren’t supposed to walk in it. I unlocked the door, remembering to make sure it stayed unlocked as the quiet night beckoned. I had to go out into the driveway to see the moon. There she was way up in the sky still covered with a reddish-brown glow, wispy clouds played at the edges of her but never quite covered up her glory. I leaned against the Soul, my Dad’s Kia Soul that is, and took a moment to breath in the night air and bask in the beauty of this glorious moon, thankful that I am still able to find such glory and wonder in the night sky and be in awe. Looking up at that moon I felt something shift, like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I went back inside my “bunionator” tap tapa tapping on the concrete looking forward to October 8th and the next Blood Moon.

The triquetra is a Celtic knot with a triangular design symbolizing all trinities including the Triple Goddess (Maiden, Mother & Crone); the eternal cycle of life, death, and rebirth, and the realms of Air, Earth and Sea which, to the ancient Celts, represented the entire Universe. To Christians, the triquetra has been used to symbolize the Holy Trinity (Father, Son & Holy Ghost) In fact, many cultures and religions have considered the number three to be holy or divine for thousands of years. A symbol of three interlocking circles looking somewhat like a three-leaf clover without out a stem has been found on religious statues in India that were made 5000 years ago.

Our Sweetgrass is harvested in Central California by a gentle group of souls who understand that we must nurture Mother Earth. Burn sweetgrass after the sage or cedar has driven out the bad influences. Sweetgrass brings in the good spirits and the good influences. As with cedar, burn sweetgrass while praying sends prayers up to the Creator in the smoke. High Hollow Horn says, in the The Sacred Pipe, “This smoke from the sweetgrass will rise up to you, and will spread throughout the universe. Its fragrance will be known by the wingeds, the four-leggeds, and the two leggeds, for we understand that we are all relatives; may all our brothers be tame and not fear us!” I also was taught to put sweetgrass at above the front door or next to it to keep only the sweet inside the house. Always remember to give thanks for all the wonderful bounty this incredible planet provides.
One of the best methods to increase our faith in the Buddhas and to receive their blessings is to gaze at an image of a Buddha again and again, regarding it as an actual Buddha who is supremely kind to all living beings.
When we see a Buddha statue, for example, instead of thinking of it as an object made of metal or stone, or focusing on its artistic faults or merits, we should feel that we are in the presence of a real living Buddha and develop deep faith.
By viewing images of Buddhas in this way, it is as if we are opening a window in our mind through which the blessings of the holy beings can enter.
This special way of viewing Buddha images is based on wisdom, not ignorance, and serves to increase our faith and receive blessings. The representations of Buddhas’ body, speech, and mind are so blessed that, even if we have no faith, just seeing them blesses our mind.
