It is March 21st today. That wonderful, wonderful time of the year that signifies all endings and new beginnings. It is a time of the year when all things that were dying are dead and all that was waiting to born is being born….
Every culture celebrates the arrival of Spring.
After the burning of the Holi when we consciously throw out and burn away all that is negative within us, that which is no longer working for us, that which is counter-productive … emotions, things, relationships, dreams – in fact everything, and after the joyous eruption of colour during Holi … and after the wonderful celebration and welcoming of the new year Ugaadi where we promise ourselves to take all that Life gives us – the sweet, the sour, the salty, the bitter, the hot … joy, fun, sorrow, pain, happiness, success – together with equanmity and no complaints … comes the Official Spring … The Vernal Equinox.
Earth rises from her long sleep. We too psychologically arise from our deep hibernation within ourselves. Things have fallen into place during this sleep-time. Resolutions have happened. The Path forward is now clear.
So… a major Thank You to Life and all that makes it all what it is … wonderful and never, never boring.
