Meditation #1

Spring Equinox

Kore was identified with the first budding of a plant, a seed, or a kernel while her Mother was seen as the ripened fruit, the flower in full bloom, the wheat ready to be harvested. Kore was potential, a glimpse of what could be. She is possibility itself. However, if she stays as the Maiden She is only potential and never potential realized.

The Spring Equinox is when the days and nights are in balance with one another, with light to gain over dark. The world holds it breath before it plunges into activity. In this still moment, before you rush forward, look inside yourself. What potential do you have that is not yet realized?

Meditation Question: What possibilities do I wish to bring forth?





Activity for the week:
Materials needed
Soil
Flowerpot
Flower seeds
Popsicle stick or other stick to use as a plant identifier


When you are comfortable with an answer to the meditation question, write down it on the plant identification stick. Place that stick as a marker in a pot of soil. Next, hold a few of the seeds in your hand and focus your Will on them, to make them be the physical representation of the possibility you wish to bring forth. Picture what you wish as fully in your mind. Once you have done that, plant the seeds and care for them. Anytime you care for them or water them consider how much daily care, attention, and energy goes into turning seeds into mature plants. The same is true for any potential you wish to develop in yourself. As above, so below.

Hmmmm...so far I have no possibilities. Or potential. Or even a plan.

Did I mention that I'm not the best at meditation, which is part of why I want to do this? When it clicks, boy does it click...but for the most part I find myself either thinking about food or that my neck/back/legs ache.

I'm going to have to go back to laying flat on my back with my knees bent and feet flat on the floor to meditate again. I just can't do the sitting up thing.

Oh well...it's not as if I have to complete the meditation in any given time period.

How are the rest of you doing?
ok...I'm on the road traveling for business...so lets' just say that I'm going to need more than a week on this one. I really thought this meditation would be much easier than it is.

I guess I see too many things as possibilities, but none of them feel "it" for me. I'll keep going with it. I have to learn that not everything happens overnight and things don't fit according to my neat little plans and timelines. Seems to be a lesson I haven't learned.
