This is the perfect visual representation for today's topic: Can the phases of the moon affect human behaviour? This query is right up there with some of life's big mysteries, so rather than pontificate the point with my limited knowledge on the subjects of the universe, matter and astrology, I will humbly add that I believe some of us could very well be sensitive to the atmospheric changes that pull on the particles which science has proven to exist in the atmosphere. Notwithstanding the recent discovery of the Higgs boson particle, and somewhere in the middle of modern physicist's theories and folklore, there lies a field of probability that leans towards science and math. According to regular astrologists, the recent full moon was more potent because Mercury was in retrograde. (search me). I do know that my own emotions have been more shaken than stirred lately, so I am now feeling more sympathetic to the possibility that we are not separate entities at all. By that I mean that like the universe, we consist of a bundle of particles and water - functioning in an energy field. It is this connection to the universe, though grossly understated and simplified, that makes it plausible, and perhaps possible for us to be impacted by events and changes in the earth's magnetic pull - and beyond. (Cue the Startrek soundtrack dears.)

Create peace in your mind and body by observing your in and out breath for just a few repetitions. At that point, your thinking brain will likely interrupt the silence, and remind you of the challenges inherent in shutting down the ego. Be patient, and know that as you return to stillness and non-thinking, you are quieting down that sense of overwhelm and reviving your system with new found energy.

It is said that the spiritual law of dharma applies to each and every one of us. That is to say, that we each have a unique purpose or talent that defines and drives us. I'm still waiting to look up to the clouds and see the wisp of a word that might give me a little hint as to what passion could possibly drive me as much as my first love - fitness. While the hard core days of training, teaching and owning a gym are behind me, it's safe to say that working on the inner self offers so much more fulfilment than trying to perfect the outer self ever did. I also like that there's no wrong way to be creative, and I find that there's inspiration everywhere. Much of it comes from fellow bloggers, and I am always grateful for your comments and support. Namaste friends.
