Light and Beauty

It is the dream language. As you watch nature, as you watch your dreams, and as you listen, you will learn to interpret it. Your heart always knows, but it takes time, trust and courage, to learn to follow it. – (from my novel)

I’m writing now, as the day begins, the sun filling the world outside, filling the birch trees with green light. There is that touch of autumn in the air, just a chill of something, a few golden leaves. It is still warm, but it’s as though I can feel it coming, autumn, coming over the mountains in the distance, inching across the ground, whispering in the wind. Somehow, this time of year feels like a new beginning, more than the end of something. Normal life is starting up again, after a beautiful summer.

I saw the moon yesterday, it was bright and glowing against a deep blue sky. The stars were back too. All signs of a darker season.

I’ve been picking mushrooms and blueberries in the forest. Crouching down among moss and heather, the ground swimming with light and shadows.

Yesterday was the commemoration of the ascension of the Virgin Mary. A friend shared it with me. It’s not something I have celebrated in the past. Mary was pretty much absent from the church that I went to growing up, but I always feel drawn to her when I see pictures of her, statues, painted windows.

Some of us met, prayed and sang together. I felt there was a rose inside of me, and I asked silent questions, looking for guidance, and I felt them being answered.

I always carry this small, fragile question inside of me, that I ask the sky, my heart, that I whisper to the night. Am I loved?

I’m not sure why I still struggle with this, but I do. Maybe that’s why I’m so drawn to Mary, to her love, forgiveness. To me, she is the Divine Mother, the Goddess.

    Dear Anne Linn, just this morning I sensed the first breath of autumn in the air. I tried to put it into words, but couldn’t. When I read your post, I realized that you had described, beautifully, what I was sensing. That autumn has still not arrived, but I feel its arriving presence, coming over the mountains, on the wind. Thank you as always for your lovely words. xoxo

    I read this while travelling last week, and it’s just as beautiful reading it again now. Raised in a Catholic family, I’ve prayed to and felt a connection to Mother Mary over the years. Now, learning more about the Divine Feminine, i do sense a common mothering essence.

      Perhaps the Goddess never truly goes away. She just transforms, and gets new names. I wish Mary was more visible in the churches I went to growing up.
