The Sun's Day. The day of rest through cultures everywhere. Today, even the Sun is resting, somewhere behind the clouds. Taking a much deserved break of his own.
The Sun comes with with clarity, vitality and a sense of well being while we are given a climate in this day of optimal energies for soaking up some social-warmth with our family and friends as we relax and rest up for the week ahead.
The Sun is all about radiance, sharing, expressing, expanding, illumination and growth as it assures us that life as we know it will continually move forward.
And today, as it hides behind the clouds in the space of our Wee Woods, it truly asks us to rest. Who am I to argue? Who am I to deny the requests of a celestial body?
I can take this day to write and recant my heart's songs. I can do what makes me most happy, as I chitter and type away, listening to music, cooking a delicious stew, and enjoying the company of my family.
I won't be wasting any of my time of trivial matters not concerning me or mine. Selfish perhaps but I would rather spend my valuable time doing what will last; making memories with those I love. I will not be wasting my time fixing anyone, or attempting to because that is not my purpose, it's not anyone's purpose. We cannot fix anyone, we can only fix ourselves. We can help others by setting examples. As we do the works to better who we are we lead by example. Some will loathe our grace and others will be drawn to it. Either way it is of no consequence to us.
Don't you see?
This life that you live is yours, and belongs to no one else. The Sun, standing alone reminds us of this fact. We are here to shine in our own right and for ourselves. Should we light a path for others it will be up to them and not our rays that matter. For once we shine, what do we know of where our light goes and who gets burned and who tans and basks in the glory?
Oooooooooosh....deep breaths of creative flow and I'm off to do what pleases me. Do yourself a favour and do the same while harming none in the process. Your joys should never have to come at the expense of another. The Sun doesn't borrow or steal from another to shine .
