Did you see that moon last night?

Accordng to the telegraph:
the most spectacular super moon since 1948 will light up the sky, appearing 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual.
The event on Monday November 14 - described as "undeniably beautiful" by American space agency NASA - is the result of the moon coming closer to Earth than it has done for 69 years. Nothing will match it until the moon makes a similar approach on November 25 2034.

The Old Farmer’s Almanac Says:
Why is the November 2016 Moon the most interesting of the year—and perhaps the decade and even the century?
·       First, it’s a “Perigee” Moon—when the Moon reaches the point in its orbit that is nearest to Earth.
·       Even better, this Moon will be nearer to Earth than it’s been in 70 years. While the Moon won’t technically be getting any bigger, it will appear up to 14% larger than when it is at its furthest point.  
·       Further, the full Moon of November 14 is not only the closest full Moon of 2016 but also the closest full Moon in the 21st century and it won’t come this close to Earth again until November 25, 2034. Besides appearing large and bright in the sky, this extra-close Perigee Moon (or, Supermoon) will also have a more dramatic effect on the tides.

Here at Ageless with Aunty, I say, this super sensational and utterly beautiful moon is simply Aunty lighting up the night sky. For those new to Ageless with Aunty, by all accounts she was the happiest and most loving person you can imagine. She has been my sole inspiration. This week, November 18th, is the five year anniversary of Aunty’s passing, and, she had a deep affinity for the moon. Aunty was mesmerized by the moon. She was connected to its force.  And, all her life she glowed as big and bright as the moon itself.

 I am always and eternally connected to her, but even more so when I look up at the moon with awe exactly like we always did while she held my hand. I certainly feel that as the moon on this magic night reaches closest to the earth, it’s really and truly Aunty reaching closer to me. She wants to be as close as she can to all of us who loved her. So put your Farmer’s Almanac away, and get out and catch a glimpse of Radiant Aunty’s love from above. I always knew her love was bigger than the universe! And, even five years after her passing she continues to find ways to speak to me. It’s just like she promised, “forever, and ever, and ever…amen.”

The Ming man

Life is all about learning how to love! And, for many that is not so easy to do. It means we must step outside of ourselves and help to care for others in need. It means forgiving. It means patience. And it means rising to the greatest goodness of our highest selves.

As I write, someone very close to me is sick. They need a heart transplant. It doesn’t get much more serious than that. At first I was overwhelmed. And, called it a harrowing and daunting experience as I saw my precious Ming…in hospitals, ER rooms, needles and tubes poked in his neck, IV’s inserted, vast medical tests given every day, and living with the complete unknown given the diagnosis of heart failure to this extreme.

Then I realized this is a perfect opportunity to step outside myself and really and truly help this person that I love. As soon as I did slowly but surely things began to settle (if they can settle in a situation as unsettling as this). And, right then I decided to accept this with ease and grace. 
 Life can be tough. It is full of the unknown. Nothing is ever certain. Yet, I can be certain in myself and the love I was born to GIVE! Thich Nhat Hanh says we humans are beautiful flowers, we have the inner strength like a mountain, we can be still and as reflective like water, and we can allow space around us like the space around the moon which allows it to shine. And I would love to shine in my humanness, just like Aunty did who inspired this blog. Exactly like Ming does as he faces all this with courage and humility.

What helped me too was the goodness of others. I am touched by Ming’s caring friends who started a Go Fund Me Campaign.  It is as simple and as powerful as humans helping other humans in need period. You won’t find it on the news. But it’s real. It’s inspiring. And, YOU CAN READ IT HERE

Just remember, as tough as life can be LOVE is stronger, and, more lasting and even magical. It is miraculous. It is resilient. We are living proof of this. Look at all you have gone through in your own life.  And you are still here. You helped others and others helped you. It’s why we are here.

Ming is smiling today. When he read the Go Fund Me story that was posted in his honor he witnessed right before his eyes the vast goodness and compassion in his fellow human hearts, and, there were tears, but this time they were tears of joy! And, I dare say, that kindness, that love, that generosity, is helping to strengthen his stressed heart….This is a clear demonstration of us humans at our finest. And, as our Aunty would say, it’s wonderful!

Here is an opportunity to strengthen your own heart by giving. Consider passing this on and giving to the cause…. https://www.gofundme.com/waynes-open-heart-campaign

Karma is real….everything comes back to you!
