“To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.”
This ambient music reminds me of the writing by John O’Donohue about awakening from his book “Anam Cara: A book of Celtic Wisdom” – it is good to revisit his poetic writing because it is worth remembering and meditating upon for inspiration and refreshment:
“We rest in the night.
The dawn is a refreshing time, a time of possibility and promise.
All the elements of nature – stones, fields, rivers and animals – are suddenly there anew in the fresh dawn light.
Just as darkness brings rest and release, so the dawn brings awakening and renewal.
In our mediocrity and distraction, we forget that we are privileged to live in a wondrous universe.
Each day, the dawn unveils the mystery of this universe.
Dawn is the ultimate surprise; it awakens us to the immense ‘thereness’ of nature.
The wonderful subtle color of the universe arises to clothe everything.
This is captured in a phrase from William Blake: ‘Colours are the wounds of light.’
Colors bring out the depth of secret presence at the heart of nature.”
