Solstice Despacho to Honor the Sun before Being Wrapped
and Offered to the Fire
Everything included is an offering to light. An offering to feed our light. To feed the light of humanity. It is time to learn about our relationship to light.
How are we informed by light? How does light change during the day? What are the colors of light? What does it mean to be a being of light? How does light express itself through us? How is the light around us and the light within us one and the same?
I am not writing with answers but rather to offer the questions. Questions of our time. Questions for our evolution. Questions to sit with, to live in.
150 years ago the light bulb was invented and revolutionized our world. The new frontier for our times is light. Not a light that exists outside of us but the discovery of the light within us. The power of our light. If the light bulb could completely change life on our planet imagine the potential the light within each one of us holds for transformation?
Light is informing and shaping us all day long just as the Earth is informed by the Sun. In order to be informed by light we must be a vessel that allows light in. What is it that blocks the transmission of light? Our thoughts. Our discursive mind. Everything that distracts us from the present moment.
What does the light of a new day, the light of the setting sun feel like? What wisdom does the light of a full moon, the light of our Sun and the light from the stars hold?
What kinds of light are we exposed to each day? Candlelight? The light of a computer screen? Flourescent light? Sunlight? Moonlight?
What do we have to learn from the mysteries of light?
This is our work in Peru. To study light. The rays of light. The colors of light. The frequencies of light. To know ourselves as the prisms of light that we are. Not as an intellectual pursuit but as a living embodiment of our truth.
Last year at Machu Picchu we arrived before sunrise for ceremony. We spent the day in meditation on light in and around the central plaza. During that time I received an awareness that all we need to live and sustain our life is light. I felt as if I could live off light. No food. Simply light.
Although I have not acheived this level of existence in my life the potential our light holds is limitless.
This is the new frontier.
AHO my friends! AHO!
