"The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn." [Ralph Waldo Emerson]
Yesterday was the summer solstice. This is the one day in June when the Sun is at its highest path through the sky, marking the longest day of the year. Because the day is so long the Sun does not rise exactly in the east, but rises to the north of east and sets to the north of west allowing it to be in the sky for a longer period of time.
It is said that this is the time when the most potential and maximum growth are simultaneously occurring together. I checked the sunset and sunrise tables and it looks like we have a couple more lengthy days of light ahead of us before we start moving in the other direction. The spring has given way to the full force of summer while harvest time remains merely a few months away.
Did you plant some seeds of possibility? It is not too late to take advantage of this annual cosmic occurrence and bring the natural powers of Nature into your own personal experience. I love being backed up by the Universe, it’s a mighty power and force to align with. So what are you waiting for? What do you want to see manifest in your Life at harvest time on September 22nd, the fall equinox, and shortest day of the year?
Set your intention, plant seeds of possibility and be ready at harvest time, remembering that the creation of a thousand forests exists in one acorn!
Speaking of potential, did you know that “A standard 7 1/4-inch pencil can draw a line 35 miles long, write 45,000 words and absorb 17 sharpenings before becoming an unusable two-inch nub?” [Beth Leibson, in Reader's Digest]
Or that if your senses are working normally that you can “smell one drop of perfume diffused through a three-room apartment?” [John D. McGervey and Bill Sones, in Buffalo (N.Y.) News Magazine]
Happy Solstice My Friends!
