It’s Sunday morning here in Atlanta, a bit overcast but pleasant enough outside to have the windows open. One of my most favorite things about this time of year when the weather is “just right” is the sound of our birds in the backyard. They sing and chatter about as though there are no cares at all. Each one has a unique heartsong whose vibrations awake our own. When we tune in to listen, and allow their joy and beauty to penetrate our outer world, it stirs a sense of wonder at the mystery that connects all of life on this Earth.
In that spirit, allow yourself to embrace this day. Nature does not rush or hurry through. She moves with a natural rhythm, carried by the day into the night, only to begin again tomorrow. Even with the devastation that has occurred in Japan and other places in our world–Mother Nature continues on in her rhythm. And she offers to us the same elegant dance. From the glorious “supermoon” last night to the graceful song of the birds this morning…the beat goes on. And with each time dusk descends upon us, we can let go of the pieces from this day we no longer need. And begin again with the new dawns of our tomorrows.
So let this day carry you. Allow her to MOVE you at will. Sit in silence long enough to hear your own heartbeat, sensing the rhythm of All That Is drumming beneath, within and around you. Understand–we are all One. We each greet both the dusk and the dawn together, with the beat of our Earth. There is peace in this knowing. Serenity in connecting to its grace. We are always loved, carried, protected.
And in the moment when you are still my friends–close your eyes, place your hand on your heart and feel the beat there. With every breath, know you are breathing in the dawn and new beginnings. As you release, breathe out this day and let it flow from you. This is the alchemy of Spirit. Transformation from what was into what IS. As you hold all of this in your awareness, feeling the beat of your heart…..listen now……to the whispers it shares with you…..
