It seems significant to not only view the wonder of the upcoming solar eclipse, but to also set aside some time to make inner observations. The eclipse is a time of the coming together of the sun and the moon, opposites of one another, and yet in so many ways the same. It is a time of darkness over light, and light over darkness, the Yin and Yang. The eclipse is a powerful metaphor and an optimal time to consider our internal lives and dialogue. It presents us with a chance to move inward, and to make changes as we move forward. For those of us that have the opportunity to witness the solar eclipse, take a moment while gazing up to gaze inward and shine your heart.
