Today I was able to see the solar eclipse from Raleigh. 93% of the sun was blocked out by the shadow of the moon. I rolled out my yoga mat at the park, did my grounding meditation, and looked inside to see what was hidden there. And then I donned my "glasses" and layed down and observed.
The eclipse was pretty impressive.
There was much written about this event and its meaning - from the scientific to the spiritual.
I began to think about what this means to me personally, how will I use this awe-inspiring event in my real life.
The moon is soft and gentle-- you can gaze upon it at any time without fear. The sun is the opposite - it is forceful and harsh. But today I saw the moon reach across and touch the sun, and calm its heat.
It reached inside of me and calmed my frantic mind.
Everything is possible. Softness has power, as does stillness and love.
The point I am making here is that we get to determine what events will mean to us. We get to see the miraculous and integrate it in our lives.
Today has made the list of my TOP 5 - awe-inspiring natural occurrences I experienced in my lifetime. #knowyour5
