“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”
~ Maori Proverb

Summertime, and the living is easy.  Why?  Because when you face the light, there are no shadows to be seen.  Summer also offers us the opportunity to spend time outdoors among nature’s living things.  When we communicate and become one with nature we find wisdom not available to us anywhere else.  Nature has the answers.

So go forth in summer and feel the gift of the warm sun on your skin and observe the elements of nature interacting.  Take a summer vacation or summer Sabbath time during which you can learn to be, and not just do.  Find the corner of the Universe that brings you peace and then carry it with you in your mind’s eye when you leave.  That way you can always go within and find that peace again.

When nature surrounds you, listen.  Listen to its rhythm, and listen to your rhythm.  They are both related to creation.  Whenever you experience difficult times you can return to this moment of summer and heal yourself.

Let your light bring all the elements of summer to others, no matter what season it is.
