Winter Solstice 2021
Today is the shortest day and longest night of the year. Around the globe many cultures celebrate this turning point from darkness to light.
It is Winter Solstice.
Especially this time of year I sense a beautiful expansive stillness emanating from within nature.
As we pause for a moment allowing our intellects a rest from the mental and forever changing chitter-chatter of our busy minds we see that this deeper stillness is a perfect reflection of who we truly are.
In stillness there lies a deeper Knowing easily forgotten when we innocently live our lives from within the self-made confines of our personal thinking.
In the darkest of darks there is always light. As we pause and all else falls away we see that we are that which lights up the world.
Perhaps it is time we stop talking and start listening.

I point to the formless and constant in our experience; that we experience from the inside-out 100% of the time, that we are whole regardless of what we may believe, and that we already have all we need to navigate life. I invite you to listen for the feeling of calm and quiet kindness that lies beyond your personal experience of what seems right and wrong about you.
