The sun,–the bright sun, that brings back, not light alone, but new life, and hope, and freshness to man–burst upon the crowded city in clear and radiant glory. Through costly-coloured glass and paper-mended window, through cathedral dome and rotten crevice, it shed its equal ray.” ― Charles Dickens, Oliver Twist
Finally, today the sun, Father Sol, comes out to start our day with warmer light, with nurturing heat rays, with a bright light bringing out truths, realities, so we can see what is good in our lives, what we need to work on to clear to the better days. Life comes out of the shadows, where we hid from the cold, the dreary for the resting time of winter but now we have hope for the warm days of new beginnings. Our lives are such as this. We hit a winter of sorts, of our inner beings, conflicts, harsh realities, some we created on our own decisions of impulse, of rashness, but others through no fault of our own we meet sadness, chaos. We show our true colors, our own abilities, talents, in how we meet the adversaries, the problems. We have the chance to show that we don’t turn on others, blaming everyone around us for the problems. We have the gift to look to our high powers of our own spiritual faith, giving ourselves the chance to see past today, where the dreariness reigns, but looking toward the Sunshine, Father sol, to see that yesterday’s reality is not today’s and today’s in not tomorrows. There is a spiritual reason for this day. The whole of the universe is set up for our greater good, to give us our needs, our desires. Every faith system on the planet, teaches this thought , this idea. Every ideology of man’s thoughts, teachings gives us the knowledge that no matter what we are facing right this minute, the greater good will come. We can trust that when we put our lives in our spiritual faith, new beginnings, fresh starts, the end of winter will come leading into great rays of bright sunshine of life.
