“There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it’s all dark.” -Pink Floyd
The Moon is just the moon. A satellite in orbit around the Earth. A hunk of rock spinning around and around in perfect proximity and speed to create a balanced spin and rotation of the Earth, that just so happens to allow life to exist. Not to mention all the influences in tides and movement of water, globally. Yeah, JUST the Moon! I find it interesting this quote came from music, of all places. Although, not so surprising in the effects that music has on emotions, and the symbolism that water often plays tied to emotions. Tides and emotions, water and humans, all influenced by some rock in space. It really is quite accurate to assess that the Moon in and of itself is dark, it just exists as it is. It’s the Sun, and our perspective that allows us to see a lighted side and a non-lighted side of the Moon. It’s actually the combination of the moon orbiting the Earth and the latter orbiting the Sun that creates moon phases, and the appearance of the dark side of the moon. It is interesting that our perspective relative to position would cause us to label something as such, when in reality, it’s a misnomer. It could then be extrapolated that other things in our life have been mislabeled because of our position and perspective there of. Perhaps, things that are JUST things... much like the all important Moon.
On this day, I will take the time to contemplate this idea and the Moon. What important things in my life have I relegated to “Just...” What might I be missing that is of GREAT importance, that looks so plain and I take for granted? 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
