ASince time immemorial
the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year,
celebrated. Many prayers were offered up, asking for
this to happen, because it was understood that these
things happen only by divine will. The winter solstice
is significant because it foreshadows the time when
the Light flows back into the world. How beautiful
is it not?
And so even though at the winter solstice we remain with the
dark and cold of winter for some weeks, as we remain in our time
of dreaming new dreams, the Light beckons, showing us new and
better ways forward, infusing each day with the Light of more
possibilities. Whether or not we take up these possibilities
is up to us, because we have free will. What will we choose?
If you feel inspired you may wish to spend a few moments out
in the darkness of the evening - to drink in its hidden potential.
The darkness of night can be delicious, because it takes us into
the wombtime of existence. Then as you return to the warmth of
your home, perhaps you'll feel inspired to light a candle, or
to gaze deeply into the fire, and consider how you can infuse
your coming Spring cycle with new life, new potential.
