What a joy it is to be having these lovely light mornings and long light evenings. I really hope you can make the most of them. There is something very soothing about this time of year for me…maybe its because there is so much light I can slow down knowing there is even more time to do things! However, as many of you are aware Nick and I have moved from our home of 25 years and are now on a 6 month journey of being nomads and helped by various friends until our new home is ready. So light is touching us in many ways as we travel light, as we touch down lightly in various homes and as we slowly and lightly let go of what we have been so used to. It feels hugely liberating in some ways. Huge gratitude and thanks to those helping to make this journey lighter of heart. A couple of quotes, both by Og Mandino, that are helping include:
“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness because it shows me the stars.”
“Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.”
Whatever this summer is bringing you, I hope it is sheer delight. Take time to replenish your soul; to fill yourself up with the magic and beauty of nature; to rest and nourish. We are currently working with Manipura chakra, your power house, your sense of Self…I so hope you can make the time for yourself you need.
