Radiance in wisdom traditions is often seen as clear, brightly shining clarity. With what people, places and things are you most radiant?
Luminosity suggests the potent, reflective, expressive manifestation of radiance, with the power for anything to appear from empty space.
Look at the blessing gifts of the emanation rays!
In what ways and with whom are you reflecting your most authentic knowing and Being?
Sufi Master Kabir calls the kiss of union, The Great One and the Little One. Buddhists might call it Mother and Child. You may relate with radiance and luminosity as Brother Sun, Sister Moon, as named in the film of St Francis of Assisi. We all have our own spiritual, scientific tendencies, mythologies and views, diversely meeting in awe and wonder about such things.
Sun and Moon are the most dedicated partners. Look at their ceaseless repetition of encircling and embracing us on planet earth. Look at their profound effect on us, of repeating a pattern that is life and death giving.
The original cosmic parent ~ light and dark, flow and ebb.
The point is the grandest show of SunMoon intimacy and union of alchemical opposites appears in a moment of time where either by sight and/or energetically, our moment of silence is a potent reminder of our own intimacy with ourselves. In what ways are you devoted to offering yourself your own wise and compassionate action and sharing this with others?
This coemergence of SunMoon in the cosmos is born of deep space. "As above, so below" say the ancient Hermetics. Born of space and emergent in conception, we're born into a repetition of inhale and exhale.
The power of repetition and nondistraction are perhaps the two most essential qualities of living radiantly and dying luminously. Without the repetition of positive life sustaining practices and our essential devotion to practicing them, we may feel a sense of 'lost in the universe', a spacy loss of purpose, power, intimacy and meaning.
To what do you commit your non distractive dedication and how is this sustaining your essential nature?
As we bow under the blazing sun of showering light and the shadow light of stillness & mystery, may we touch our aspirations and hold our commitments and potent alive responses true.
Gandhi reminds us through his example of a unified state of consciousness, as he was never 'against', in a splitting way. His consciousness was not in a divided state. Rather he befriended. He was always 'for' in a nonviolent nondual manner. His words, deeds and actions were transmitted into the collective as an undivided state of consciousness. Like a coemergent union of Sun and Moon. When the Sun is seen fully again, remember that the Sun shines equally upon all things.
