A TIME OF RENEWAL AMID CHANGE AND THE UNKNOWN
Lammas is the festival of late summer… we have gone over the top and are on the downward path of the year. What lies behind is now memory, what is to come is unknowable. It bodes a re-entering to the Dark from the Light. We feel the passage of time pushing us out of the leisured mood of high summer into the urgent hustle of fall. Once again we stand on the brink of Change… whether reversal, renewal or reformation we do not yet know. But this is the time to fortify defenses and aim our sights on favorable results.
There are many sides to every matter, every issue, every moment.
Learn to look beyond the obvious, see what lies behind
Dare to turn it over, upside down, inside out, backward and fast forward
Shake off the preconceived prejudices, the stale old biases, the rigid rules
Step beyond your safety zone, risk the unknown, dare to look directly
Confront the challenges, gamble the odds, take your chances
Consider the unimaginable, the unthinkable possibilities, the upheavals
Give way to the inevitable onrushing future
Welcome the insights, the revelations, the transformations
Walk open-eyed toward a renewed vision, a clearer destiny, a stronger self
