There are many functions and messages of the Eclipse. When examined, they can seem more simple than we believed, in a “Of course! It’s so obvious now” kind of way.
One of the more spiritual purposes of the Eclipse is for us have the message to have faith and trust that Light still exists when all around seems dark. The Light has not diminished, just because times seem dark.
One of the more emotional messages of the Eclipse is – with familiarity and effort to discover, explore and understand, we can grow to no longer fear those things which we feared when we did not discover, explore and understand.
One of the more physical messages of the Eclipse, is – the heavens hold wonders which we have yet to see, but each of the wonders which heaven has for us will be shared with us in time on this planet.
One of the more mental/intellectual messages of the Eclipse is – even with an intellectual understanding of how things work, these events still inspire awe.
There are many levels to an event like this. Even though it is a normal event – the sun always casts a shadow on the far side of the moon, even if the shadow only goes out into space – that which is normal or ordinary is still a function of God and the heavens – even if is is so common as to be taken for granted or go unnoticed.
