In the Darkest Time of Year
It is a dark and heavy time of year, the sun is so much further down on the horizon at these latitudes, darkness comes early and leaves later as well. Where in your life do you need Isis to shine a light into the corners of your darkness? The best way to clear out the darkness after all is to shine light into it. As it is said, ‘tis better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Now is the time to look at our own shadows, and allow our own intrinsic brightness not to overpower but to gently illuminate and guide us. Allow us to recognize and adjust our shadow so that they too help move us in the right direction and not into despair but to face what needs facing with illumination, with courage, with truth, and with compassion.
Now is the time to find the tiny seeds of brightness, the scattered bits of joy, and start fresh -- release what once was for the new year comes! and with it comes a new call to adventure. But before we can hear the call, we must release release release and renew and refresh and recreate - rebirth ourselves ready for whatever may come. Re/vision ourselves for what has changed and what has to change to navigate whatever is to come next. To care for ourselves, deeply and gently, to care for each other deeply and gently, to wrap up loose ends, and to ready ourselves for the rebirthing of the world. The recreation of the world is upon us and it will take us in all our aspects to build what needs to be built, create what needs to be created, to fight what needs to be fought, and to love what needs to be loved.
And so in this season of tiny lights in the darkness, rest and ready yourselves - the new world and the new year awaits, and it will be exactly what we make of it.
With love, many little tiny lights, and curiosity,
