Time of the Day Series: Mornings

Are you a morning person? Maybe you are one of the many who loves waking up to a barely bright room, washing up in the half-light, putting on your running shoes and chasing the sunrise. Maybe you like rolling out of bed, just in time to get on your mat for sunrise yoga, doing your sun salutations as the sun slowly rises, hits your windows, and shines on your face as you lay down for savasana. Maybe sleeping in is your thing, at least until you feel the warmth of the morning sun coming through the windows and your day curtains, signalling the start of a new day.

The words and imagery below are yours to experience. Pair it with our recommended music as you read it to yourself and enjoy the peace of the morning.

A new day.

Now playing – Lupus Dream by Lama House

The morning signifies a new beginning. Unless you work shifts, it is usually the start of your day. The earth has made another complete revolution around its axis, and it’s time for you to rise as the sun rises. Watching the sunrise is a beautiful thing. One of the common reasons why people love hiking or climbing mountains, waking up at ungodly hours of 2 to 3am to start their hike up the summit, is so that they can catch the first glimpse of the day — the sun peeking out from beyond the land as they watch from the highest point, proud of their achievement of completing their climb, and prouder still of the world they walk in, seeing the beauty of the sun and all that is around them illuminated by it in that golden light. There are two golden hours in a day, and the sunrise is one of them.

The golden hour.

Now playing – Waiting for the Storm by Rand Aldo

You might want to take a walk during this golden hour of the morning, watching as everything around you becomes illuminated in this sheen of gold. Watch as it spreads its warmth to the morning dew on the grass that no one had trodden on during the night, as the wind blows through it and it bends to the rhythm. The sunlight reaches you, your skin, and you see that it’s radiating. It is just soaking up the warmth of the morning and the golden light. At that moment, you remember that you are a part of the world. You can accept that you are a beautiful, radiating, golden part of the golden hour.

 

Good morning sips.

Now playing – Affinity by Gavin Luke

Whether it is a cup of coffee or your favourite Chai tea, your morning routine may start with a cup. A simple cup, a ceramic mug, an espresso cup, a teacup. As your body slowly awakens to the morning, you go through your morning routine; the sweet scent of your tea brewing, the invigorating fragrance of your coffee, maybe even some milk this morning. Find a seat by the window, balcony or your porch. Where the sun hits in the right places, and you can feel it warming you up just the right amount. Watch, as the warmth of your drink rise from your cup and feel like the invisible rays of the morning as it charges you up for the day ahead. Feel strong and refreshed, knowing that the sun rises every day regardless of what had happened the previous day. It could have been storming, and it could have been tough, but the sun rose again this morning, bathing you in its radiance, its strength.

Appreciating mornings

Now playing – Fire in the Sky by Medea Bird

Maybe you need a reason to get up in the morning. Perhaps it has been tough; maybe you cannot see the sun hiding behind the clouds, your clouds. Mary Oliver wrote,

Hello, sun in my face.
Hello, you who make the morning
and spread it over the fields
and into the faces of the tulips
and the nodding morning glories,
and into the windows of, even, the
miserable and the crochety —
 
best preacher that ever was,
dear star, that just happens
to be where you are in the universe
to keep us from ever-darkness,
to ease us with warm touching,
to hold us in the great hands of light—
good morning, good morning, good morning.
 
Watch, now, how I start the day
in happiness, in kindness.

 

Her poem titled, Why I Wake Early, is a tribute to the morning sun. And a reminder to you, to all of us to be thankful for another day with it.

Enjoy your mornings, lovely ones. There is always a reason to wake, and there is always time to be thankful.

One last song before you start your day, Gratitude by Stone Desert.
