“Let it be, blossom night
All will free if set flight.
Loosen the hold as these petals might
And receive the first moment of true beauty’s sight.”

When we cling to or put away “night blossoms”; all that opens in and of the darkness is forbidden the divine chance to open. We hold on and gather these like many possessions of the shadows. It is a natural instinct to seek safety, indeed since childhood and many of us learned what to hold onto long ago.
However, as adults seeking Spirit and Truth, we can choose to embrace “night blossoms” as gifts and softly touch each that comes to our awareness and set free that which was Hidden. We must be gentle and accepting, as we see a flower loosely unfolding in rhythm to nature’s will and flow towards return.
Our own tenderness and compassion, multiplied by the invoked Grace of the Divine can find this opening and embracing freedom which is accepting, fragrant (senses open to accept and acknowledge) and forgiving of time, loss, judgement and seasons passed (it is in full Presence which recalls its True Nature: all Love). This, then allows a freedom to see, (Knowing) the beauty (Love and Law) true. And All, in becoming is set Free. Love, Linda Willows
