I used to study with an elderly woman of Native American heritage who taught me a Moon song, so I offer that...it's kind of irresistible to me when I am inspired to sing it to Grandma Moon. The moon offers some unique teachings as she reflects the light of the Sun.
If you think about it, you can extrapolate alot from just that and act upon it in real life. I do my best to act as a reflection of light, since modeling behavior (example) is the best way to elicit desireable and positive responses in most daily encounters.
This is not to say that I don't fall short...I sure do, but I endeavor to fulfill this understanding for myself, as it was a gift from Grandmother Moon herself. She has mediated alot of difficult moments for me, by whispering about the choice to reflect the light gently, yet with strength. So the best giving back that I can do, is honoring and acting on the teaching with which I have been graced. And Grace, is one of her messages.
And there is always more...Joyce in the mts.
