Mabon, or the Fall Equinox, always inspires me to reflect on the ways in which my life is out of balance, and how to restore that balance; always understanding that balance is a process, not a perpetual state of being. The darkness and light are only equal (balanced) for a short time each year, yet it is part of the full cycle of life. And, to know balance, and live fully, one must experience imbalance, as well. Contrast is the catalyst for desire and understanding. I’m feeling blessed tonight and looking forward to rest, reflection, and restoration of my light during this cycle of darkness.
