Attitude of Gratitude–Day 19–“Sunergy”

Today I walked outside and felt that Spring was in the air; it is 50 degrees, blue skies and full sun. As we approach the dawn of Spring once more, I’d like to give thanks to the light.

In an earlier post I wrote about winter being the Savasana of the seasons. It is a time to go within and to be still. As I prepare to wake myself from this deep winter hibernation, I am encouraged by the extra light and the movement of my clock forward by a solid hour.

This transition reminds us that without darkness, it’s counterpart–light–cannot exist. Daylight savings time is symbolic on many accounts. The time of the year when our clocks are set back represent yin energy–we must be conservative, graceful and quiet with our movement in order to retain our store of energy through the winter. Most people (including myself) don’t know how to sit still for such a long time and crave the yang energy of the light. Thus, it is no wonder that we are all so grateful for the natural boost we receive from those extra hours of the sunlight we get when our clocks roll forward. We do not have to work so hard to sit still and save our energy, because light is in abundance.

So today I am thoroughly grateful for this beautiful day and for the energy that the extra hour of sunlight gives me. May I harness this extra energy I have today in order to be a force for good in the world.

“With Synchronicity, all the resources we need are made available to us at the precise moment that is appropriate. The people who come into our lives are the ones we need at that moment in time. Everything is perfect. We only need to recognize this to tune into the flow. Everything happens for a Reason and Every Experience is a Learning Experience.” - Alex Chua
