The grasses are light brown
and the ocean comes in
under the fleet from last night
which dozes now in the early morning.

October’s Full Hunter’s Moon
Oct 1: Full Blood Moon at 2:05 pm PST/ 3:05 pm MST/ 5:05 pm EST
The Old Farmer’s Almanac actually calls October’s moon the Hunter’s Moon, where pagan almanacs call it the Blood Moon, both are correct. The reference of the Hunter’s Moon is very similar to the Harvest Moon as work or in this case hunting could be done into the evening hours due to the brightness of the moon itself.

Inner Journey: MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“The spiritual life is a call to action. But it is a call to … action without any selfish attachment to the results.”
— Eknath Easwaran
Many of us feel deeply that we want to make a difference — we want our lives to mean something in the bigger scheme of life. While this is a noble motive, we might want to explore what lies at its root.
Does the drive to make a difference arise from ego’s need to feel worthy? If my ego is not convinced that I matter, I may want visible proof that I do by making some kind of impact on life.
Soul doesn’t need proof that it’s worthy. Soul thrives in being awake and connected. Perhaps if we let go of the pressure we feel from our ego’s need to be recognized, we will be more open and able to simply live soulfully. And by doing that, we WILL make a difference!
“A person’s worth is contingent upon who he is, not upon what he does, or how much he has. The worth of a person, or a thing, or an idea, is in being, not in doing, not in having.”
— Alice Mary Hilton

“When you affirm your own rightness in the universe, then you cooperate with others easily and automatically as part of your own nature. You, being yourself, help others be themselves.”
We are all connected. We are all living examples for each other. When we are being ourselves, feeling natural and at ease, people can’t help but respond in kind. It’s beautiful to have this open, honest communication. Being self-aware helps us to relax and be ourselves. We know that when we do that we are happiest, and that we also get the best response from others.
