Today is the Equinox – Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, Autumn in the Southern. Given the times we are in, it is easy to dismiss this day and not acknowledge its significance. And that would be a lost opportunity.
Earth has a natural rhythm, as does all life. The Equinoxes and Solstices are planetary markers of an infinite Earth Dance that exists both within and without. Observing this day provides an opportunity to consciously synchronize ourselves with the rhythm of this dance.
Take a few deep breaths. Allow yourself to find the rhythm within your own body – the expansion and contraction of your lungs, the space between your heart beats, the subtle awareness of your blood pulsing through your veins. When we are healthy, this rhythm is steady, consistent. It has a trajectory – toward expansion and toward contraction. There is a place in between – a moment where both extremes are held in dynamic balance. This is The Equinox. Equal nights and days, neither dominating the other.
Take time today to find the balance point within yourself. As within; so without. Blessings to you and Happy Equinox.
