Some days, we can be that light, we can shine it out. Some days we need the light, we call it in. So, are you someone who feels that they always must be bright and shiny and it’s your job to light up the world?? Well, maybe ‘reflect’ on that and let some illumination come your way!
Or, are you someone who just likes to bask in that nice glow, look for the light and then reflect upon your feelings? Do you need someone to shine the way, make a plan, be the lighthouse? What if you let some of your brilliance out and shined just a little? What could be the loss, or more importantly, what might you gain?
In our practice, we see each – Proud Surya (the Solar God), the source of illumination, the big candle, the heat and fire of transformation and potential. Consistent, present, and on a cycle we feel and see.
Surya is paired with sweet Chandra (the Lunar Goddess), the source of reflection, the mirror for the Sun’s illumination and the coolness of thoughtful action and deep stillness. Inconsistent, waxing, waning, but also on a cycle that we feel and see.
So, brighten up or reflect a little more, but children, ‘run into the light’. Be a living lens or a mirror to clarify, magnify and reflect back on others the beauty they send forth.
This thought brought to you by the quote I led with – I credit today’s post to my ‘little brother’, Mr. Sanjay Shakshi Pandey, of Mumbai. We are family through FB, and he posted the thought and inspired me.
Thanks and praise, brother! Happy New Year!
