The 20th June as the Sun reaches its point of Turning
The quality and duration of Light is most noticeable for those living far North and South of the equator as the Sun pauses along its path. The Turning of the Path at the Solstice offers the Awakening sOul pause to reflect on the way in which the Light and Dark dance together. For Northerners, the stretched Light illuminates the quality of sOul that guides us through our waking time; for Southerners, the dignity of the Spirit chaperons our inward journey. The experience of the Light is fuelled by the Shadows in our sOul. The way in which the Dark is illuminated is, in turn, fuelled by the quality of our Light. One side without the other is incomplete. Together, they form a unified whole.
As the Light Turns, this time offers both illumination and confrontation of the quality of your Light in AND within your world, after all you are everything and anything that you perceive. All of it is you. The way in which your external life unfolds is proportional to the content of your inner life. The way in which you live within your interior life, is also proportional to the experiences of your outer life. Northerns have the opportunity to focus ‘without’ while southerners dive ‘within’. Two differing journeys; one end destination – to awaken to the mystery of being here and now.
May you find your way home, wherever that may lead.
Solstices blessings to you.
