The Sun Is The Perfect Example

 The sun as I understand represents the inner being which always shines within us.The light of being is our true nature described as the Divine Light within us. Such light is ever shining and is everywhere.Rabindranath Tagore poetically describes that light in these words:" Light, my light, the world-filling light, the eye-kissing light. heart-sweetening light! Ah, the light dances, my darling, at the center of my life: the light strikes, my darling, the chords of my love; the sky opens, the wind runs wild, laughter passes over the earth. The butterflies spread their sails on the sea of light. Lilies and jasmines surge up on the crest of the waves of light...Mirth spreads from leaf to leaf, my darling, and gladdens without measure. The heaven's river has drowned its banks and the flood of joy is abroad."

I experience such light within me when I am quiet within me. The quiet of non-doing moments opes, expands and deepens my awareness of the ever-flowing  and ever present stream of pure consciousness. It is filled with peace, joy, love, fulfillment and fullness. I also experience this state of consciousness when I am fully absorbed in doing what is deeply meaningful to me. At such times my doing is not  separate from my being.. It is like the light is the sun and the sun is the light.. It happens when I read something that moves and fills my heart like Tagore's poem I mentioned before. The sun light for me is a call for awakening of my mind and heart. It is like living from within.

May we awaken to receive the blessings from the ever-shining and ever-enlightening hands of the sun!
