Rant # 9

The most wonderful thing happened for us yesterday. My friend Sandy came to share the Palm Springs sunrise with Roxy, Charlie, Jon, and me. She had to get up mighty early to make the one hour drive from her home to ours but she arrived looking fresh and ready to share a fabulous loving morning with me and my family.

On her drive here Sandy saw a shooting star over the mountains, a good sign that it was going to be a great day. And a good day it was indeed. We watched the sun come up together for the first time in 40 years. It wasn't the most spectacular sunrise because there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Clouds are what promote the most beautiful colors. But watching the purple night sky turn to the light blue of morning and seeing the brilliant white sun rise in the east was spectacular enough for us.

The sunrise is a big part of my morning ritual. I use it as a focal point for my morning meditation. I feel the light and colors fill me with love energy to have, and then share, for the day ahead. It has worked for me for a long time. When I start each day reaffirming my commitment to love, it can't help but be a good day.

Sharing that experience with Sandy was extraordinary! It further solidified the love we have for each other. I highly recommend it to one and all. My pups even got in on the act. They too seemed to be extra happy to have more love to experience.

Begin every day with the promise that you will give your loving spirit to others. At the end of the day you will find that you have received a lot of love in return. Any troubles you may have to confront will seem far less significant. The level of peace that you will have is directly related to the love you give.
Peace and Love,
