Isn’t it a great feeling when you walk outside and take a breath of fresh air? Filling your lungs with oxygen, you feel clearer and energized. Air carries upon itself the energy of the Divine, and it allows for the entire world and all of its inhabitants to take without prejudice. Many traditions have given it many names. It is sometimes called prana or chi, but it is the breath of life. It is everywhere and ever abundant. This lifeforce, knowing no discrimination, travels to every person, every animal, and every tree equally. It is without price and without limit. This invisible energy of life represents the abundance of the Creator’s love for us, and yet, there are somehow still moments in which we feel lack. We do not recognize the abundance that is ours, and so we may feel depleted and without, or that someone else has something more. Such thoughts, however, are illusionary. When dark clouds cover the sun, is the sun not still shining, sustaining all living things? Feelings of lack are just dark clouds covering the truth of the endless abundance that exists for each of us in this universe. Like the inexhaustible amount of air that spreads across the globe, the universe is abundant in the Light of the Divine. This week, we are faced with our illusions. The cosmos assists us in seeing past these dark clouds to the shining Light that awaits us. If we can just pause for a moment and take a deep breath, we surely will find that the universe is never lacking, but on the contrary is overflowing with energy, ideas, prosperity, and most importantly, an endless love.
