One of the things I enjoyed about the evening of and day after the Super Moon was listening to and watching how people responded to it, whether or not they were even aware of this event. Many of those who were aware of it reported to me a day of quite startling, fluid events, all moving along without effort, though some of the tasks they had at hand were quite difficult. Others described serious disorientation, forgetfulness and confusion. One person forgot to go to work the next day. Still others reported experiencing altered states of consciousness even as they were competently navigating their grounded, mundane lives, full of work and other activities.
Here at my own home, I watched an unconsciously spontaneous evening of sharing unfold in my neighborhood, which is the purest kind of ritual. Unplanned and authentic. Advertisements and staged events pale in comparison to the natural way that natural humans have of just coming together, for no apparent reason than to enjoy each other’s company. No entrance fees are required. It happens all on it’s own, if we just get out of the way and let it.
