Invocation of Being
Long have we wandered and been apart from her shores.
Long have we flown on unseeing wings.
The eagle soars high on boundless feeling.
Long have we felt the groundless without root, or presence.
Long have we been valient in the name of love.
Long have we allowed nameless fears to limit our possibilities.
The forest continues it’s endless cycle of ages.
Long have we felt alone in expectant solitude.
Long have we danced our own lives to the dream of wisdom
to the unbearable void of ourselves.
The tide washes evenly on deserted shores.
Forever we are one. Forever we ignite out being in the elemental fire of our spirit.
The golden age dweller.
The playful sprite.
The hooded wanderer.
The tortured seeker.
The power of being is ours to hold.
The beauty of now is here for the taking.
Forever and tonight,
we bathe in the majesty of wonder.

During this Moon phase, there is a slight slowing down of enthusiasm due to an emerging desire to produce tangible results from the energy being expended. The issue of values enters into the equation and an urge to tie together the data available so that you can utilize current opportunities. There is still plenty of forward motion, and this is a great time to continue initiating and progressing forward. This Moon phase favors gaining more information and the input of others to further your plans.
A redneck family took a vacation to New York City. One day, the father took his son into a large building. They were amazed by everything they saw, especially the elevator at one end of the lobby. The boy asked, “What’s this, Paw?”
The father responded, “Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life. I don’t know what it is!”
While the boy and his father were watching in wide-eyed astonishment, an old lady in a wheelchair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights above the walls light up. They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction. The walls opened again, and a voluptuous twenty-four-year old woman stepped out.
The father turned to his son and said, “Go get your maw!”
Remembering September 11
8:42 a.m. American Airlines Flight 11, a Boeing 767 with 81 passengers, nine flight attendants and two pilots, hijacked from Boston en route to Los Angeles, slammed into the north tower of the World Trade Center in New York.
9:00 a.m. United Airlines flight 175, a Boeing 767 heading for Los Angeles, carrying 58 passengers, four flight attendants and two pilots slammed into the south tower of the World Trade Center in New York.
9:43 a.m. American Airlines flight 77, a Boeing 757 leaving Dulles airport for Los Angles with 58 passengers and six crew members, crashed into the Pentagon. A portion of the Pentagon collapsed 30 minutes later as a result of the crash.
10: 29 a.m. United Airlines flight 93, a Boeing 757 taking off from Newark, New Jersey, heading for San Francisco, carrying 38 passengers, two pilots and five attendants, crashes just south of Somerset County, Pennsylvania, outside Pittsburgh.
In less than two hours, the world changed forever. Thousands of people died, the economy was shattered, and the most powerful nation in the world was brought to a standstill, all because a few politically and religiously intolerant men didn’t like the American lifestyle.There is perhaps no phenomenon which contains so much destructive feelings as moral indignation which permits envy or hate to be acted out under the guise of virtue.
