SUMMER SOLSTICE begins tonight with the full moon and continues through to tomorrow at 10.38am
The summer solstice is a festive day of joy and happiness. It is one of the great solar festivals and celebrates the peak of Summer. It is the longest day of the year when the great Sun stands proudly at his highest point in the sky.
The summer solstice is about embracing creativity and celebrating it with mother earth. In some ways it’s a releasing of that which we don’t need anymore and embracing and focusing on that which we want to CREATE and bring into our lives! What is important is that there is intention. That’s a step in the right direction. Of course if people are able to be specific and co-creative with Mother Nature their lives will be all the more richer for it.
So you can celebrate with your own summer solstice by having intention of thought tonight and tomorrow to that which you want to create and to celebrate with all that is Summer – flowers, colours, smells and decorations!
How will you or did you celebrate? What intentions are you making clear in your mind.
I will finish this topic with a wonderful quote from the OSHO ZEN TAROT –
“Creativity is the quality that you bring to the activity that you are doing. It is an attitude, and inner approach – how you look at things…It makes no difference what particular form your creativity takes – it can be painting or singing, planting a garden or making a meal. The important thing is to be open to what wants to be expressed through you. Remember that we don’t possess our creations; they do not belong to us. True creativity arises from a union with the divine, with the mystical and the unknowable. Then it is both a joy for the creator and a blessing to others!”
HAPPY SUMMER SOLSTICE!
