Star gazing and music of the spheres

So on Saturday I got a wild idea that I recycled from my childhood. I decided that I was going to drag an air mattress out into the backyard, not quite the Grove but close, and watch the stars. When I was a child growing up out in the country we did this as a matter of course. We would drag the mattresses out on to the lawn and sleep under the stars in the summer. It was much cooler and the light show was spectacular.

Since I am older now, I have some creature comforts that I insist on. I put down a tarp and dragged the worlds most comfortable air mattress out with a warm fuzzy blanket and good pillows. The good Frater and I just lay on our backs gazing skyward.

I was not sure if it was going to be worth it, since we live in light pollution central. I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite all of the light the stars and planets were really spectacular. The moon was waning at about 62% and it was rising up through the arch that is the entrance to the Grove. FANTASTIC! Jupiter was really working up a storm and glorious. I could identify a few more, but beyond that I was lost and it really didn't matter.

As I was laying there just giddy from all of the beauty abounding, I heard it. At first I thought it was an air conditioner, but then it got louder. The stars were emitting music in the purest sense of the word. I heard vibratory patterns and something very different. It was similar to the sounds that vibrate back at me when I do LBRP's. Somehow the stars were the orchestra for the choir of angels. I said something along the lines of "what is that music???" outloud. My good Frater just smiled at me. As embarassing as it is, he had to explain the music of the spheres to me. Who knew? We ended up falling alseep out there and did not drag ourselves in until 1:30 AM. It was wonderful.

So now I am starting to think that I understand the concept of the Logos just a bit better. Vibratory patterns emit from stars, angels and from us. The bigger us... all of Malkuth us. Who knew?

The meteor show of the Plaedides starts tonight. I am all set :)
