A Great Wheel that Turns Both Ways At Once

Max Ernst - Birth of a Galaxy (1969)

September 21st.

In the North, the Autumnal Equinox, in the South, the Vernal Equinox; One Planet, One Life, and a Great Wheel that turns both ways at once. Yes.

September 20th.

The coyotes are singing in the pre-dawn twilight. It is impossible not to know what they are saying; it is just as impossible to translate it. Sublime.

September 17th.

The power of the New Moon. The beauty of Rosh Hashanah. The turning of the Great Wheel. The ceaseless undulation of the oceans. The extraordinary cycle of your own breath occurring 21,600 times every twenty four hours.

This is the moment, this is the hour. It is the only moment that is, it is the only hour that ever will be. Each world a body, each body a world. Ever ending, always beginning. Yes.

To be a transparent vessel of power and wisdom. In service to the One Life. Through all my particular responsibilities and relations. Yes.
