For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, today is the first day of the Spring Vernal Equinox. Although the equinox heralds fall in the Southern Hemisphere, the phenomenon happens at the same exact moment in every location around the world. Around the world, daytime and nighttime are relatively equal, as both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres are receiving about the same amount of sunlight. This is just another tie that binds all of us humans to Nature and to the Universal charge.
During the first few weeks of Spring, the cold earth begins to awaken from many months of rest. Worms emerge from the ground and colorful buds blossom as the sun’s warmth breathes them to life. Birds chirp overhead as they collect twigs and leaves to create nests for their eggs. Spring is a time of rebirth, growth, and new beginnings. It is a time to replace the gray barren landscape with light and color. Spring is rejuvenation in the truest sense of the word.
The fascinating twist is that Spring doesn’t just happen in the cosmos or outdoors in Nature—it happens within each one of you as well. You are connected to this great Universe and are part of its light and its power. As Nature proceeds with its new beginnings, so too can you. Grasp that new energy that surrounds you—breathe growth, life, and color into your own being. Today is your new beginning.
