Reflections on Mabon
Age Group: Adult
As we await the advent of Mabon, we should view the year just past as
a season of growth within our lives.
Reliving in quiet contemplation, the storms of misunderstanding and
ignorance that poured down from the bitter rains of humanity.
With stoic patience we weathered the brief droughts of love and
tenderness that are such an undesired part of our growth.
Such days spent in anticipation of better days to come. And yet a
time for tempering the soul, for our spiritual strength is being put
to the test.
Accepting with a deep and silent appreciation the positive rays of
sunshine, a gentle touch here, a kind word there, that has touched
For such experiences allow us to blossom to our fullest potential.
We cried and mourned as old friends lives suddenly withered away like
fallen autumn leaves.
Many a season we shared and yet all things pass in their turn, as the
seasons of time continue to move forth.
We rejoiced with laughter and wonderment as new lives sprung forth
from the void, their tiny cries alerting the world of their presence.
Their innocence like golden heads of grain gently swaying to and fro
with the changing winds of time.
And now it is Harvest time, a period of gathering the fruits of ones
life experiences from the past season. It is upon this crop of
experiences that we subsist as we await the next year's harvest.
It is Mabon that the year stands in equal balance, the day and night
being of equal length.
It is upon this day that we decide if our current harvest of
experiences will be a bitter crop or one of spiritual bounty.
For it is upon such a decision that the seeds for the coming year's
crop of experiences will be sown.
And so, just as Johnny Barleycorn is sacrificed in honor of this day,
so should we sacrifice the undesirable acts and negative experiences
of the year just past. In this way we plant the seed for the year
ahead, in sweet and fertile soil.
Blessings to one and all, and shall your harvest be one of spiritual
bounty and not of bitter regrets during this Mabon observance.
