The Blessing of the Sun

This Week’s Quotation:

The relationship between the fire of love and the deep water of emotion is one of six primary relationships in your creative field. The relationship between fire and water creates the experience of blessing and of being blessed.

Can you feel how much your waters crave the blessing of the sun? If you are in touch with that inner longing, you know something about the way the souls of all people crave the warmth of the sun. They long to feel acknowledgment, honor, appreciation, and loving compassion.

The Blessing of the Sun

Happy New Year!

This week’s quotation is from the first chapter of Becoming a Sun, The Warmth of Blessing. The book is in seven chapters that I composed in order to trace the creative process. So it seems timely to reference the beginning of the book at the beginning of this year.

The quotation reminds us that in all good beginnings, the fire of love warms the waters of the human heart. After all we went through in 2020, it is good to remember that.

On this first morning of 2021, I can feel the turbulence in my own feeling realm after all that has transpired this past year. How about you?

All that turbulence isn’t a very good place from which to start the new.

So perhaps you will join me in allowing the waters of the heart to come to stillness and peace. And then see if you feel the beneficence of the fire of love, the essential power of Creation. Like the sun shining on a serene body of water, let that fire warm your feelings. Give it a few moments to really happen for you.

Now let’s allow that simple process to become the essence of all that unfolds in 2021. Whatever else happens, the warmth of blessing is now in this year to come.

What does it mean to become a sun?

Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.

  1. Thank you for this opportunity to come together in this way on this the first day of 2021. I am vividly aware of what you are meaning about the feelings which show up on such occasions. How blessed I am by the radiance of the sun “spirit” as I am open to those ever available rays which love and cherish my heart. May we hold this conscious reality together going forward.

  2. What a great way to begin 2021. Letting the warmth of the Sun warm the waters of the heart. In my world, already, this new year has started with a strong impulse to allow internal change at deep levels. That warmth of the Sun allows for relaxation and exploration of the direction the change is pointing toward. I am enthused by this process and look forward to what it will show in days ahead.

  3. Thank you for inviting this wonderful way to enter 2021 together. I join you in that and believe that this is the most vital essence required for 2021 to unfold all its potential magic in our World.

  4. My grandfather wrote a song to honor the little community where he lived. People still love to sing it, even though they wonder about an image he used; …the deep water in us rising as we have been away, and upon returning see the mountains of home….
    There is something we love, and there is the blessing we experience when our soul feels that it is being acknowledged and honored for what we love.

  5. Happiest of New Years to you.

    May the resilience of our internal sun actualise in radiance supreme externally.

    To be light in the here and now allows us to sustain well-being and vitality. We owe that to the world and to join forces with others radiance can only bring the shield of reflection that we can use to enhance the very lives we lead day to day.

    God bless us all who allow out glow to benefit our lives and those surrounding us ❤️

  6. I am reminded of the first time I felt the warming feeling of the full sun on my skin as I paddled a canoe with my dear teammates in the deep blue. My belief was that feeling was unique because of the compacted reflection of the sun off the ocean but now I think it was deeper.

    There was a sense of uneasy vulnerability to the deep blue and the spacious distance from land in a human-powered water vessel while the sun reminded me of my place at the moment, in the back of the canoe with the others in front of me all the here and now. There was a letting go of the inner turbulence and letting into the fulness of the moment, in my skin yet aware of the vastness.

    Let’s just say that I saw and felt my world with deeper reverence upon stepping back on the sand. Thank you for this reminder.
