J holding sun

This morning practicing Sunlight Qi Gong as the sun rose over the Atlantic Ocean and meditating with the sun warming my face, I had a realization. The sun is always there, giving tremendous energy that keeps life going on our planet. Whether I look or not, whether or not clouds block my view of the sun, it keeps shining, generating and sharing energy with all of us. The sun has not only been here, keeping me alive my entire life, but has existed about 5 billion years! A very potent “Higher Power” in my life! It will continue to sustain me for the rest of my life, and the lives of all people who now exist on earth and those to come for many generations – whether or not I pay attention, respond, understand its generosity and care.

My aspiration today is to be more like the sun, to give of the energy I have, the gifts, the love I have received. Whether or not others notice my light, respond to emails about retreats, days of mindfulness, Qi Gong classes, I want to keep sending out all the goodness, the energy, the light, the love possible that I have so freely received.

Thank you, Sun, for the gift of life. Fill me and help me generate and share your beautiful energy today, whether or not anyone reads this blog!  Or signs up for classes at http://www.qicircles.com.  :):):)

Full Moon 9:17

We were fortunate last night to see the full moon rise from the Atlantic ocean – huge, orange, gorgeous! We practiced movements from Moonlight Qi Gong to celebrate and connect with nature. Then we recited the Five Awarenesses for our monthly renewal of wedding vows:

1. We are aware that all generations of our ancestors and all future generations are present in us.
2. We are aware of the expectations that our ancestors, our children and their children have of us.
3. We are aware that our joy, peace, freedom and harmony are the joy, peace, freedom and harmony of our ancestors, our children and their children.
4. We are aware that understanding is the very foundation of love.
5. We are aware that blaming and arguing never help us and only create a wider gap between us, that only understanding, trust and love can help us change and grow.

If you would like to practice growing in understanding and love for your partner, join us in a brand new class this fall for COUPLES! We will meet for 4 sessions every other Wednesday beginning October 18 at the Takoma Park Community Center. Find out more about this class  Waking Up Together – on our website with a link to register with TPCC. Space is limited, so early registration is recommended. We look forward to practicing with you!
