Today is the solstice, my absolute favorite day of the year—especially over the course of the last 15 years when I’ve been living between two mountains. On the 21 st of December, the last peek of sunlight slides behind one of those mountains at 3:00 p.m. and doesn’t show-up again above the other one until 8 a.m. the next day. It is dark and cold here this time of year—a time to percolate on my blessings (at the risk of sounding sanctimonious).
I admit, given everything that’s been goin’ on over the course of the last few months, it’s been a challenge, only this is what I believe—see if you agree:
Every positive thought we hold, every time we pivot toward the light and away from that darkness that currently seems so pervasive for a variety of reasons, every time we choose to love and compassionate over fear and hatred, we will raise the ocean of consciousness of humanity (and the cosmos in which we are immersed—including the sun, moon,
stars, and planets) at least an inch or two.
We cannot know when that human consciousness of ours will tip into the right direction—into the possibility of a golden age of balance and love that has been long predicted to be possible by the avatars and advanced souls who have preceded us. All we can do is to fortify ourselves with everything that will strengthen our hearts and souls in making our contributions toward that possibility.
May each and every one of you continue to be endowed with unexpected joys, and magical blessings as we celebrate the coming of the Christ Consciousness and the “Festival of Lights” (the re-dedication of the Temple of Jerusalem). Let us all continue to brighten those inner light bulbs of ours and usher in together, an absolutely spectacular 2021.
With so much love and gratitude for you all!
