February is a perfect month to reflect on the beauty around us, and the things that we love, to bring us into a space of possibility. The intertwining of love—passion, even—and possibility. Of course we have Valentine’s Day, and all the love and passion celebrated mid-month. But earlier than that, February 2nd, is celebrated in the Celtic tradition as Imbolc. It’s a holiday marking the arriving whispers of spring, welcoming the as-yet invisible life beginning to push its way through the to surface of the still-frozen earth.
All that effort to push through the cold times, present in each blade of grass and winter tree bud, demonstrates what seems to be a passion for life that is woven into the cells of living things like us.
So it is worthwhile to remember– to remember on purpose—the things that kindle our passion. So what does it? What does this for you?
At Aurora, we love getting to see this unfolding of passion and possibility, for so many people. Sometimes it’s in response to a pose that catches your attention, or an experience that comes during meditation. Sometimes things push to the surface in conversations after class. We love hearing about the things that bring you joy in your practice and in your life, and the possibilities that announce themselves when you pay attention to that joy. And we thank you for sharing it all with us.
Let's keep that Passion and Possibility flowing, Live Everyday Sacred, Namaste.
