In the cycle of our Earth, today is the Solstice (Summer where I am in the Northern Hemisphere and Winter in the Southern). It is also the Full Moon. Here in the Northern it has indeed been a time of full light, full light shining long and bright on so many broken systems that need to be fixed/healed: political systems, systems that reinforce inequitable dominate culture privilege, economic systems designed to keep wealth in the hands of the 1 percent, systems of greed that are killing the planet, the list goes on. May these longest days, may this time of brightest, harshest light, may this time of illumination even in the night, help us to see clearly what is broken. Then, as the light begins to soften, as the blinding light recedes into more manageable levels, may we take what we have learned and continue the work of healing, of mending, of dismantling, of building new systems that benefit a wider good. Blessings to my Northern Hemisphere family in this time of brightest holy light. Blessings to my Southern Hemisphere family in your time of deepest sacred dark.
