Soul Musings/Day 21: Offering

Solstice – the day with the least physical light. Darkness holding untold gifts that we have yet to unwrap.

Using this time of diminished light to explore the passages where breath moves. Reflecting our unique expression and offering to the world.

This darkness is a reminder of so often holding on to our fullness of Being, hiding it where no one can see. Yet serving as a gestational womb where it is the hand maiden of possibilities to birth.

Rest here and breathe as the inhale is brought forth from outside light submerging itself into the dark passages within….. and held for a moment on the sacred altar of a pause, until the exhale is birthed from the dark in ultimate surrender.

Aware there is no guarantee that breath will once again be taken in from the light we offer our life from the darkness….

“Too Sacred”
There is a private chamber in the soul
That knows the secret of which no tongue can speak
Your existence, Oh love…my dear, has been sealed and marked
“Too sacred, too sacred,” by the Beloved, to ever end!
Indeed, God has written a thousand promises
All over your heart that say
Life, life, life is far
Too sacred
To ever
End

~Hafiz

Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time

Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day.  Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.

Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship.  Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.

To receive daily posts simply sign up for this blog and you will be notified through e-mail.  In addition there will be daily posts on the blogs below.  Thank you for being part of this practice with me!

Breath of Transition – A Solstice Offering

“We meditate on the glory of that Being who has produced this universe; may He(She) enlighten our minds.”

~Swami Vivekananda/translation of the Gayatri Mantra

As we in the Northern hemisphere experience the transition of moving from the darkest day of the year and turning into the gradual return of light, our interconnected global neighbors in the Southern hemisphere are experiencing the opposite.  This turning is felt in the deepest reaches of our bodies, minds, hearts and souls.

I ask of you today to stop.  Stop and take a transition breath from business to stillness, from stress to absolute relaxation, from moving into the future or holding on to the past –  to being present in this moment only.  Find a moment of rest and simply being to take in the exquisite images and hauntingly beautiful voice that are part of the video below.

Breathe….and remember why you are here.  Simply to love and be loved.

A Solstice Offering from BreathingSpaces to YOU…
