☯ ☆ ☯ 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
