The moon came to me last night
With a sweet question.
"The sun has been my faithful lover
For millions of years.
Whenever I offer my body to him
Brilliant light pours from his heart.
Thousands then notice my happiness
And delight in pointing
Toward my beauty.
Is it true that our destiny
Is to turn into Light
And I replied,
Now that your love is maturing,
We need to sit together
Close like this more often
So I might instruct you
How to become
Delight is becoming who you are. Following the insignificant, yet powerful details of life that bring you joy, happiness, the things that delight your very spirit. Follow them and let them expose you, mature you, make you. When you release yourself to delight, there you will find the desires of your heart and the truth of you who you are. Delight and enjoy the light that you shine.
Yellow and orange are the colors of delight: ripe lemons stirred into tea, rubber ducky hiding in bubbles, oranges ready to be picked from the tree, ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ on warm summer days, sun rays setting over the ocean, blood orange juice stirred into cocktails. Rothko used these colors to evoke the emotions of delight and now we urge you to wear the clothes that will stir these emotions in you and those around you. Let your light shine, become light itself.
