Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) Show Jannuary 1, 2011


What better way to start off the New Year than with a Light Show of the Northern Lights, or "Aurora Borealis. 
As life presents its multifaceted challenges on a moment to moment basis, we forget the mere existence of this PHENOMENAL LIGHT SHOW happening on a nightly basis, whether we like it or not.
How it occurs is somewhat beyond comprehension. It illuminates the earth; dancing, undulating like wavy, iridescent curtains of light capturing the imagination. 
My prayers for the New Year:
-that people awaken to the magic of knowing we are beings; living in the Earth, not of it. 
-That we can settle our differences through dialog, not war. 
-That shared appreciation for the miracle of life becomes a common denominator motivating humankind to evolve toward a unifying consciousness.
