Happy Solstice! I hope you find an opportunity today to celebrate the turning of the seasonal wheel. I always feel a sense of excitement with these passages, as though the spinning world has issued me an invitation for a new journey, a new adventure, a new way of showing up. This year in particular I feel a vibrant buzzing encouraging energy bidding us to show up to the party in golden costumes of light. Doesn’t that sound like fun?
I love this poem by Hafiz. It speaks to me about what I think we’re all called to do, and reminds that we’ve got so much support and so many resources. Perhaps it’s our perfect invitation to have the most wonderful summer we can.
Did the rose
Ever open it’s heart
And give this world
All its Beauty?
It felt the encouragement of light
We all remain
~Hafiz, translated by Daniel Landinsky
What are you inspired to unfold this summer?
