Today is the Vernal Equinox (Spring Equinox). In Washington DC, we have a beautiful clear day, perfect for spending some time outdoors, with nature.
The Spring Equinox is one of the two days of the year where daylight and dark are equal. In terms of Chinese thought, this represents the balance of Yin and Yang in the world and in our bodies.
For those who meditate, especial Internal Alchemy (Nei Dan) practitioners, it is one of the most important times of year to intensify your practice.
Just as the day is made up of Yin and Yang, so is our body. One of the by-products of internal cultivation is the balancing of Yin and Yang energies in our body. This is crucial for health and well-being.
So today, take a little extra time for yourself and enjoy nature, meditate and relax. Your body will thank you for it.
