This past week has been chilly with freezing rain, snow, and hail for a normally sunny California. I happen to love the rain and days like these since living with extreme weather was more the norm for me growing up in the islands. Six months of humid rain, thunderstorms, mild flooding...that often translated into families and friends coming together to help each other through difficult times. And it's no exception out here. Why worry about the things you have no control over except with yourself and just be happy? Hope for the best and be prepared for the worst, that was the philosophy that everyone lived by. Just having the basic needs - water, food, electricity - made everything else seem like icing on the cake.
But, in spite of my love of generally adverse weather, I called on the Sun, imagining its powerful rays lighting the skies. I called for spiraling golden sparks that glittered and danced across the land, spreading warmth wherever they went. Thankful for this blessing, I now shine the light of love on you. Let the power of this light infuse you with strength and energy, adding fire to your spirit.
I gratefully acknowledge the spark of energy from you and welcome it with open arms. Enjoy every moment and live the passionate life you intend it to be.
