Pagan Library: Asahi (asahi [ausa-he] is japanese;asa-morning, hi-fire)
Asahi, the morning fire,
rise oh body, for my soul to spire.
Gyrations of another day,
never ending, always flowing,
the dance we call creation.
Centered is the one who seeks,
for intuition is always knowing,
so I call upon the “Asahi”
to keep the sparkle glowing.
Asahi, morning fire,
Creator of new life,
balancing the course of nature,
oh heal me of my strike.
Warrior, flow through me,
for it is strength that I desire.
Walk with me, this troubled day,
so that with peace,
I may retire.

On February 9 to 12, 2022, the waxing moon is moving inside a large circular (some say hexagonal) star pattern, known as the Winter Circle (or Winter Hexagon).

AWARENESS THROUGH LOVE AND FEAR
“There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love — the first fluttering of its silken wings — the first rising sound and breath of that wind which is so soon to sweep through the soul, to purify or to destroy.”
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Our inner journey takes us through the following stages relative to love and fear:
- UNCONSCIOUS LOVE: When we are born, we exist as pure love but we are not conscious of our love.
- UNCONSCIOUS FEAR: Our souls have set the stage for our evolution. As we grow, unconscious fears arise in our personalities that draw experiences to us that wound us.
- CONSCIOUS FEAR: Our wounds bring pain and suffering that enable us to become conscious of our fears.
- CONSCIOUS LOVE: When we’ve suffered enough pain, we are motivated to move through our fears to consciously experience the love that supports all.
“Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.”
— Alexander Smith
A Note from the Universe
I do wonder how some people, who upon seeing gorgeous, billowing cumulus clouds floating effortlessly overhead, don’t just want to explode with joy.
Or who, upon seeing a mighty old oak tree, don’t run right up to it wildly screaming, “I love you!”
Or who, upon being caught in the rain, don’t blush as each drop gently kisses their skin.
Or who, upon gazing at a star-filled night, aren’t paralyzed with awe.
Or who, upon seeing their reflection in a pond, don’t cry the happiest of tears.
Do you know what I mean?

“The vanity of human life is like a river, constantly passing away, and yet constantly coming on.”
It’s interesting to look at little children and think: “I was once that age!” We all start out as babies, fresh and new to the world. And now here we are as adults, shaping the world, making decisions that affect the future, a future which will one day be the present to these babies who will one day be adults. And life goes on. We’re connected now and always.
