Equinox March 2013. An amazing day.
Master teachers and yogis advise their students and disciples to observe the phenomenal world. When was the opportunity to ponder more inviting than on this spring’s equinox? It is a day of balance when the amount of light is equal to the amount of darkness; the day that marks the beginning of spring. And what marvellous weather did Mother Nature share with us to proclaim the change of seasons? A dark cold cloudy morning just like
all the others that preceded it all winter long; then a break in the clouds and an incredible bright blue sky beaconing people to come outside!
And then a snow squall and brilliant sunlight, and yet another snow squall and gorgeous blue skies, then corn snow bouncing off the still dormant earth, and again the blue skies of spring. Wow! It was a day to celebrate the seasons, a day to let us know that things are changing, but not quite yet, a day to wonder about opposites, dark and light, sun and snow. One might consider this equinox as a dramatic display of opposing forces or one might consider how
perfectly planned this whirlwind of weather, bundled into one day, the equinox, was to encourage us to pay attention to our phenomenal world.
