“Who am I? – I am the silent awareness standing behind all this. What am I doing here? – I am here to grow into full awareness of my true nature, which is peace, creativity and happiness.” – Yogani
Today is a special day – as we are able to witness the total eclipse of the moon casting its appearance as the blood moon in certain regions of the globe. The internet will be blowing up with pictures of this magnificent sight. Witnessing this event from my upstairs window at its first appearance this morning, I was tempted to run and get my camera. Instead, I decided to stand there and watch in silence, allowing my senses to absorb this rare occurrence in the moment. I sent a text to my friend to check it out and advised him to take a picture from the park where he hoped to have a special view.
As I drove to work, I thought about the feeling I had watching from my window in the early hours of this morning. I thought about how I hadn’t followed my own advice to take a picture and made a mental note to remember that special moment using my senses, rather than my camera. Fortunately there will be thousands of photos for me to enjoy at the tip of my fingers.
