Even though the eclipse is over, September has begun and the air is often filled with wildfire smoke, this was the scene across the street from me on Labor Day – reminding me to lift my spirits.
When everything is going well and all seems in equilibrium, it is easy to have faith and be grateful. When health or wealth or dreams are suffering the realities of life, it is necessary to stretch, to chase away disappointment, to change gears. To launch ourselves upwards, to celebrate small victories, to know that this too shall pass.
Sometimes it is very small actions that make the difference. A phone call to a friend, a stop-and-think moment, a meditation on all that is holy, a long shower. Whatever moves us to a point of distanced and creative observation.
Look for the hidden blessing and soar above it all. Go deep and allow your spirit to soar.
