Meditation on the Equinox

Meditation on the Equinox

Over our heads, the great wheel of stars shifts,

the autumnal (or spring) equinox manifests itself,

and for one precious instant darkness and light

exist in balanced proportion to one another.

Within our minds the great web of neurons shifts,

new consciousness arises,

and for one precious instant experience and meaning

exist together as revelation and epiphany.

Within our hearts the great rhythm of our lives shifts

a new way of being reveals itself,

and for one precious instant

the nexus of the body and the seat of the soul

truly exist as one.

Let us give thanks for those times in our lives

when all seems in balance.

For those times are rare and precious.

The equinox shall pass, the revelation may be forgotten,

and our actions will not always reflect our true selves.

But through our gratitude

we may remember who we are,

reflect on who we may become,

and restore the balance which brings equanimity to our lives.

Let us be quiet for a moment, together.
