My heart swells with gratitude for the sunshine. It’s my favorite season! It provides us with sustenance and nourishment. It helps us realize how connected all of life is, and reminds us that we are at once very small and very big.
But in this moment, I am equally grateful for the certainty of the sun when I’m unable to see it. It’s still there, still shining, still warming the planet. I just can’t see it.
I want to savor whatever is. When it’s cold and dark, I am not lost. I am finding my way. And when I’m searching for answers, the one I need now is always here.
There are no new answers. But we are forever remembering THE answer. Always love. We are forever learning to trust love enough to act on it, enough to live it regardless of the weather.
I yelled at Sam the other day, disproving my theory that I had done that for the last time. The weather has never been this tumultuous, but that’s no excuse. I want to feel the sun even when I can’t see it. I want to own today’s lesson and grow into the next one.
We’re in Love School. The lessons aren’t going to stop. But we can develop more love of learning, less resistance, more trust. We can remember that the answer is always love … and that as long as we stay true to our self, we’ll stay true to love. The rest doesn’t matter.
With love and smiles,
