“Silence and Winter has led me to that otherness.
So let this Winter of listening be enough,
For the new life I must call my own.”
~ David Whyte
Surrender to your Silence
Surrender to the Silence of this sleeping land
Surrender to the Silence of this season
This is the time for Listening.
The Winter Solstice is a time to celebrate the growth done in Darkness and the slow magic of the Light in it’s own time. Once again the wheel turns towards the waxing journey of the Light, but this is not done quickly. Slowly we listen, slowly we awaken. The dance of light and shadows continues on. But here on this day, we are assured that the Light will always return.
Creating a life full of meaning and being present to all the little things has always been important to me. Although the slower more deliberate road is not always an easy one to navigate, its rewards touch something beyond our own lives and connects us with something far beyond this world. I am so honored to be contributing to this experiment in slow, to offer up my own experience and invite us all to see the richness of slowing down.
From Where Is My Guru: “Our culture has overindulged in living the fast life. Fast Food. Fast money. Fast sex. Fast cars. Fast everything. The faster we get, the more we look for the easy way out. The more we use speed to define our lives – the farther away we get from creating a grounded sense of happiness, presence and peace – a place from which all aspects of our live can grow. Join me and Where is My Guru from December 1-22 in a holistic experiment in slowing down.”
