The Sacred Genius of Generosity

The Sun, each second, transforms four million tons of itself into light, giving itself over to become energy that we, with every meal, partake of. For four million years, humans have been feasting on the Sun’s energy stored in the form of plants and animals, as each day the Sun dies as Sun and is reborn as the Vitality of Earth. Every child of ours needs to learn the simple truth: She is the energy of the Sun. And we adults should organize things so her face shines with the same radiant joy.

Human generosity is possible only because at the center of the solar system a magnificent stellar generosity pours forth free energy day and night without stop and without complaint and without the slightest hesitation. This is the way of the universe. This is the way of life. And this is the way in which each of us joins this cosmological lineage when we accept the Sun’s gift of energy and transform it into creative action that will enable the community to flourish.

The next time you are “losing your cool”—feeling like it is all up to you and that you have no support—remember that this universe loves you and wants you to be here. Relax back into the loving arms of True Nature and feel her support with every step. Walk softly with gratitude in your heart for all that is provided, and become an embodiment of your very source: a radiant generosity at the center of your family.
