In Southern California, we don’t feel the seasons as dramatically as those in other parts of the country and we often have to rely on the calendar to tell us when a season changes. Over the weekend it suddenly got chilly and Saturday morning was foggy, but this week it is warm again and somewhat steamy and we are still walking around in shorts and flip flops and I am wearing my big, silly hat:
But we do have one thing in common with everyone else in the Northern Hemisphere, after the Autumnal Equinox sunlight will lessen and darkness will increase. And for the briefest of moments tomorrow, worldwide, the light and the dark will stand in perfect and equal proportion.
Is this moment perceptible? What if we could feel the instant of the equality of light and dark?
If we equated this balance to ourselves, would we feel at perfect peace with all the things that war in our in mind, the personal, the emotional, the professional, the spiritual?
Would we feel in that smallest measure of time that everything about ourselves and our lives was manageable?
And if so, what if we could string out that result into hours or days or for the rest of our life?
In my city, that moment will arrive at 7:21am (PDT). This website will help you find your exact time.
