To try and help my blue mood I started the 100 Happy Days Challenge with a friend today. I’m doing it on Instagram under Kichara8. Since I’ve been watching the sunrise every morning I figured that is a good place to start. Now that I am doing it I want to keep putting more and more pictures up, though, haha. I don’t know if you’re supposed to only do one per day, but I guess I’ll just save the happiness for myself right now.

I’ve put many hours into studying and practicing Theurgy and Taoism. In both these spiritual traditions, the sun and moon are held in high regard. They are honored as the sources of life on earth and the physical representations of two of the most fundamental universal forces. Greeting the sunrise for me is a deeply calming and life affirming activity for me.
