☯ ☆ ☯ Autumn Equinox 2015 ☯ ☆ ☯

☯ ☆ ☯ As Spirit Sun moves into harmonious and peaceful Libra, the sensitive Moon moves into friendly Aquarius, we give thanks to both, our teachers and our spiritual friends.

☯ ☆ ☯ On this day of balancing light, when both of Earth’s hemispheres, north and south, experience the same equal day and equal night, light and dark, yin and yang, I’m reminded how His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama, talked recently in London about the importance of balancing the negativity we see in the world with all the everyday positive goodness we experience. For instance, if we find the global news depressing (and who doesn’t) then in order to not get disheartened we can recall the kindness of others, which we constantly encounter, such as a call from a friend to see how we are, or a mate that brings refreshment or, if you’re really lucky, the nice person who let you join the traffic flow before them, even when traffic is slow, or how a loved one made sure we are fed and watered. You see, there are a myriad of all small actions which make our everyday world and interactions with others so much lighter and brighter, even as the northern hemisphere moves to embrace the darker yin: all we need to do is to give thanks and remember them and pay the kindness forward, noting how our own happiness also depends upon making others happy.

☯ ☆ ☯ Happy Equinox everyone, with ℒℴѵℯ ॐ from Laura! _/\_
