March 25th, 2017... Illumination of Threshold Lantern in Repose

New Reiki-Charged Green Candle

On my Sixty-Seventh birthday in this Life a White Candle was lighted in this Lantern at the Stone Circle Sanctuary of Sirius Community in Shutesbury, Massachusetts, USA. The date was March 19th, 2017. On the Vernal Equinox, I led a procession of Members, Residents, and Guests upstairs into the Octagon of the Community Center to begin the ceremony... and my Lantern went dark on the top step, as the White Candle was spent. Meditation Candle in the center of the room was lighted and the ceremony continued "off script" due to my being unprepared for this situation. Though this celebration of entry into Spring was a successful observance of transition into the season of rebirth after the dark days of Winter, I fell into a personal abyss of doubt and uncertainty as Shadow of the Archetypal Hermit, the Grim Reaper, confronted me with my own unresolved Fear of the unknown. Just a day earlier I was confirmed as a Full Member of Sirius Community by the Core Group, so I was totally unaware that my Lantern going dark would trigger me the way it did. The next step was an obvious one for someone who considers himself to be a Lamplighter... I went into Northampton and picked up a new Reiki-charged Green Candle, representing Heart, which I illuminnated yesterday before first light in the Lantern Room of the Connecting Space where I reside on the land at Sirius Community. I now stand on the Threshold of personal psychic integration, where I AM prepared to face the Reaper's scythe on a Bridge of Fire. ~ JDHWB-R

In T.A. (Third Age) 3019, the Reunited Kingdom adopts a New Reckoning, which begins the year on March 25, the date of the downfall of Sauron. This makes it correspond more closely to the Spring beginning of the Elven Calendar.  ~ Appendix D (THE LORD OF THE RINGS Trilogy)
