The Lunar Perigee
I was fortunate, last night, that I took a walk at a time just before the Lunar Perigee when the moon approaches her closest to earth - and that (for a couple of minutes) the solid cloud covering parted to reveal her. Then, this morning at 05:30 I got a full and clear view as she rode down towards the horizon.
Last night I felt a fast shimmer of energy as I gazed on the moon, this morning I was dazzled.
The mass media coverage was likewise all about the physics of the event: how much bigger the moon looked, how much more light, the unusual colour...
And in New Age/ Perennial Philosophy terms - such an event would also be described spiritually in terms of an increase in the frequency, or vibrational state, or electromagnetic radiation which sleets down upon us; or about lunar information which we can and should decode (computer linked with computer, as it were)...
Yet, on reflection, all this physics is to negate and diminish the event: The real point about the lunar perigee (as about all phenomena) is consciousness and communication.
Consciousness means it is personal - the moon personal, myself personal.
Communication is intentional and purposive.
The importance is that this was a communication, with the intention to speak to each of us as an individual.
And whether we 'get it' is up to us.
