Not Hidden for Long…

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. Buddha

Meditation: One of my daughters loves the moon. So she knew that tonight the world will experience the longest lunar eclipse of this century. This “red moon” event according to my daughter means cosmic “new beginnings”. And so she, her twin sister and I drove home tonight, watching the full moon (that in the US remains quite bright), wishing each other “happy new beginnings”! Our thoughts accompanying the wish probably ranged from school beginning a week from now, to the thought of all unfairly separated children being returned to their parents and to the longing for the truth about current secret political dynamics to be fully revealed. Whatever the three of us wished for individually, the eclipse of the “red moon” will for sure be visible to all people around the world. It reminds us that there will be millions and millions of people wishing and praying for “new beginnings”. May those wishes become a powerful prayer that surrounds our earth! The moon, the sun and the truth connect humanity. None of them can be hidden for long!

Prayer: God, thank you for the cosmic symbol of the red moon. We are reminded how humanity is deeply connected and yearns for new beginnings. Send justice for those who suffer injustice. Send light to shine on all lies and all secrecies. Reveal all hidden betrayals committed against humanity. Let your light and your hope shine! May the truth bring about new beginnings. Amen

But test everything; hold fast what is good. 1. Thessalonians 5:21
