light thoughts

Light is an essential part of our world. It warms us, makes plants grow, helps us see in the dark. It is heralded as holy in religions, ceremonies, light begins every new day. We use the word in our speech often without even realising it – lighten your load; lighten up; I felt lighter. Light can also be used to describe the quality of our thoughts. How we think & feel about ourselves and others. There’s a lot of talk these days about positive thoughts vs negative thoughts. And sometimes, it seems unrealistic. If we are feeling really negative about something, making a positive or happy statement about it just feels false! You know what I’m talking about. Sometimes we can’t fake how we feel, we just have to feel it. I’d like to share something a meditation teacher once told me.

bask in the light

Light is an ephemeral quality that we just can’t live without! The rising and setting of the sun are the only events that happen every single day, no matter what. As they say, the sun always rises! Around the world, whether northern or southern hemisphere, light defines our lives and our lifestyles. As seasons change our worlds get darker in the mornings, lighter in the evenings, days stretch to midnight or fall short at 5pm. We are in a constant state of adjusting to how much light there is outside. This affects what we wear, how we eat, when we exercise, and what activities we can enjoy outdoors. This fluctuating state is universal and it can be said that in spring time, wherever you are in the world, as blossoms appear on trees and the air warms up, really, what we are most grateful for at the end of a long winter is more light in our lives.
