We’ve reached the halfway point of the year and thinkers around the globe are offering invitations to assess where we have been as well as to take inventory of where we still would like to go. The summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere brings to peak the amount of light entering into our lives. In a sense it seems to illuminate all that has unfolded, while offering us the opportunity to gradually notice the external light decreasing. Perhaps this time period offers us the simple reminder and constant invitation from Yogi Bhajan, “Travel light, live light, spread light, be the light.”
As I investigate these statements in my life I invite you to do the same in yours. Here at CCP, we are interested in adopting affirmations of living into the culture of our business. We desire to be explorers of the intricate happenings of our lives. Optimizing our time. Cultivate relationships with ourselves and others. How can we radiate the most amount of light out into the world?
How could you travel more lightly in your life? How would it feel? Take a deep breath and relish your lightness. As I gaze into my life, I am reminded that the instant gratification of amassing more ‘things’ weighs me down. These ‘items’ essentially limit my ability to move. I also notice that when I am locked into a certain idea about how things ‘should’ look, I limit all that might be ready to unfold for me. An adventurous heart asks that we travel light.
What does this mean to you? To me, and to the vision of CCP, it means that I leave a lighter footprint upon the Earth. By cultivating awareness for the care and concern of Mother Earth, we also learn to care for ourselves. When we mindfully move through our lives, we savor more moments of present awareness. We create community so that we can ask for support and guidance. We liberate ourselves to live a fierce life. And just think, when we do this in our lives, we encourage others to do the same. We live with lighter thoughts. We move in our lives with a sense of freedom!
How can you spread more light in your corner of the world? At CCP we are dedicated to spreading light. We desire to create a community focused on light bringers. Storytellers that find light in the cracks life. As Leonard Cohen’s song “Anthem” conveys:
- There is a crack, a crack in everything ( there is a crack in everything)
- That’s how the light gets in.
- That’s how the light gets in
How can sharing your unique light offer more brilliance in the world? How does it feel when you are operating from your authentic power?
BE THE LIGHT:
What happens when you realize YOU are LIGHT? You are not the stories of your past or the anxieties of your future, you are a flipping brilliant beam of radiant light! Tuck that notion into your heart pocket! As one of my dear teachers always says, “Shine your unique constellation of energy in the world.”
As you move towards the second half of 2018, how are you manifesting more light in your life? What would you like to affirm in your life? Travel lightly my friends and enjoy a fierce life!
