Summer Solstice Wishes

Solstice - The sun stands still.  A time for fertility in all its forms to flower.  Father sky and Mother earth rejoice!

'From contentment comes supreme happiness.'
We are ever searching for happiness in external objects, but it can
only be attained when the mind is satisfied with what has been allotted
and is no longer looking. When the mind is stilled and contented,
happiness is automatic.

I was reading the above sutra this morning and it felt very apt for this time of 'austerity' for some and immense wealth for others. If one is content then either extreme is of no importance and we all know from our own experience how we are sometimes very happy when not that well off and very sad when we have riches. It all depends on our inner state of mind.

As the sun stands still perhaps we can also meditate and be still and content.  Join with our soul group in this momentous 2012 and see what unfolds.

Shiva on the banks of the Ganges amidst all the work and mud and toil sits serenely and allows all to be exactly as it is.
