Samhain meditation

Well, I started this meditation at midnight in one time zone; let's see if I can post it at midnight in the next:


The Veil

The veil between the past and the future is you.
In this moment, in this body, you are the ancestors' future, and the descendants' heritage


Through your life, you carry the blood, the genes, the spirit, the heart
the thoughts of the writers you've loved and hated
the music of the bards you've listened to
the tastes of the foods you've eaten
the visions of the artists
the smells of the gardens
you are tradition

The veil between the past and the future is you.
In this moment, in this body, you are the ancestors' future, and the descendants' heritage


Through your life, you hold the dreams of humankind
images of inventions that can't be,  things that are, and things that might be
travois and trains, boats and spaceships and Star Trek transporters
drums and shakers, autoharps and pianos, guitars and synthesizers
the abacus and the computer and the magic spell
optical illusions and video games
you are possibility

The veil between the past and the future is you.
In this moment, in this body, you are the ancestors' future, and the descendants' heritage


Through your life, you choose what to delete and what to share
you are the lover, the magician, the healer, the builder and the destroyer
you are the singer, the artist, the storyteller, 
you are the dancer that dances the dance of life
you choose, with each step, with each word, with each gesture, with each choice
but no matter what you choose, while you live
you are reality

The veil between the past and the future is you.
In this moment, in this body, you are the ancestors' future, and the descendants' heritage

Interesting...my computer and my cell phone agreed I posted at 1:00 a.m., here-time. LJ disagrees, by half an hour. What weird time zone is LJ in???
