The First Dawn
On the most easterly point of Australia, Byron Bay light house, I witnessed the first dawn of 2018. Firsts are always new opportunities. To ritualise this in some way brings our focussed energy and intention. We create our own meaning for our life.
Predawn soft light, warmth from the earth, and song of the waves accompanied our coastal walk to the lighthouse. Waiting for the sun was like waiting to begin again. What am I going to create this year? What am I thinking? What am I drawing toward me?
She (the sun)
is here in all her splendour. We silently share this beauty. Many have gathered. Then there is song and spontaneous dance. I concluded my ritual by banging the gong to declare my intention for this year.
