Today is May Day that is referred in northern hemisphere as traditional spring holiday, and in many cultures and traditions as the ancestral celebrations of spring into summer and many pagans variations of it. "Dances, singing and cake are usually part of the festivities." -from Wikipedia
May 1st is also international day honoring workers and that is something that might be seen as too close to socialistic tendencies to have it moved officially to labor day.
"Mayday" also is a code for request for help in distressed situations.
Many meanings that I would actually condense together in a moment of communal reflection.
It's great for our spirits and our bodies to tune with the change of the seasons. It's a wonderful moment to actually enjoy the nature around us, in this time of the year, in the northern hemisphere, when flowers are blooming and all the energy accumulated in the ground is bursting out with all the possible vital enthusiasm.
It's very much a great day to honor all the honest hard workers in the world. And in particular to extend extra gratitude and to pledge support to the ones that perform the most humble tasks, at the lowest, and sometime unfair wages.
And to send a Mayday to the Universe asking for a breath of sanity to refresh the heart and soul of so many individuals that have lost the memory of the concept of the unified field that has held us all together, animals, plants, elements.
May we start re-thinking of the way we treat each other and the Planet.
May we bring in way more compassion, respect and love for each other.
May we really believe in peace.
Words, words, words. I'll celebrate today with all of that in mind, now and I will be dancing and offering my heart to it. Would you join me?
