This simple trick was long hidden from me: how to properly relate to the Moon. For much of my adult life, I’ve stood You don’t need to be a particularly soulful person to take great delight in watching an eclipse. But if you are a soulful person, you’ll enjoy it more if you view it with your body instead of your mind.awkwardly under Luna, trying to lasso her with my modern mind, from the neck up, vaguely wanting something more than I was getting, but feeling nothing special. It was the same as if I were standing next to an automobile or some other object. Then sometime, as is true—when the time was right—after years of trying, I stumbled into it: a way of standing under the Moon that felt sensitive and satisfying. No mumbo jumbo necessary.
That’s because thinking about it–even beautiful concepts like the Moon is earth’s oldest temple holding the potency of countless prayers since the dawn of time–doesn’t help. You have to sink your awareness lower than mind: this is what it means to get naked under the Moon. It’s a relaxed and spacious state. Once you locate it, you can snap into it again, instantly. And just as easily, you can snap out. So that’s the value of this universal spiritual act: The Moon becomes a bell whose ringing brings you into the field of the Mother, where body and soul can quietly drink. But don’t think about it. Just enjoy.
