Expand and grow

I have this little dog eared book of daily meditations.  I bought it in 1993 when I first moved to NYC.  I found it at an old bookstore that was going out of business-on a sale rack.  It has a chinese character with a one or two word title and then a translation and finally a meditation.  It has a 365 pages….one page for each day of the year.  It is like my little cherished gift from the universe.

SUN SHINES IN THE CENTER OF THE SKY

ALL THINGS TURN THEIR FACES TOWARDS THE LIGHT.

This particular quote makes me think of expansion and growth.  How when the sun is shining brightly-flowers turn their faces towards the warm glow.  Human beings do this too…we tend to bend towards the light in more ways than one. It is in our nature to find what feels good and seek it out.   We often look away from ourselves to find it.  To expand and grow as a person means to look within and find your own light.

oooooooooh deeeeeeep.  – OR -maybe I just like watching flowers grow.
