Whether or not you celebrate this particular day, may the end of this year be good.
If you’re anything like me this is a time of deeply going inward. The holidays actually often demand of us exactly the opposite of what our body/mind/spirits want.
So be gentle and kind with yourselves and if it feels really hard to be with people, remember, it’s really what winter is all about. Going inward. Being social is much more difficult at this time of year for a whole lot of people and it’s natural. We’re the ones in synch with nature…our culture and it’s demands are out of whack. Being honest about who we are in deep and profound ways can help us all heal.
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you everybody else, means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting. ~ e.e. cummings
It is no measure of health to be well-adjusted to a sick society. – Krishnamurti
