As we are in the heart of the longest day of the year, the day with the most light- Summer Solstice-I reflect on the concept and the experience of the light of the sun.
Light- it contains all of the colors of the spectrum of the rainbow. Light, the opposite of darkness, the absence of the darkness. Light contains the powerful energy to illuminate the truth, to highlight the essence, to expose, to reveal, and to shine, simply shine.
The light of the sun makes the word go round’, provides us all food, nourishment, and makes all grow- towards itself. The effortless self-evidence of light is a mirror reflection of who we are, in our most simply form, most simple self, our true essence. This daily cycle of the light of the sun emerging out of the darkness of the night sky is easy to take for granted, especially in sunny Southern California. And, so as I write this monthly blog, the quiet gratitude of our sun that is burning hot and bright these days, is still warm on my shoulders reminding me of my time soaking it in today.
So, as we move ahead into a 3-month season of sun, let’s take those moments when basking in the light of the sun to remember and give thanks to all of the goodness and life that the sun star gives to us day in and day out.
Om Shanti (a blessing of peace, I am a peaceful soul- a point of light)
In the Light,
