During the Christmas season, when the origination of the holiday is the mystery of the spectacular birth of Jesus, when we are called to move inward toward reflection, when we are asked to slow and quiet our hearts and be grateful, culture (especially American culture) tells us to grow more frenzied. It’s as if the funnel of our hearts, that starts at the beginning of the month wide, and ideally gathers to a point as we arrive at Christmas day, is actually flipped. We start wide, and are told to widen the funnel even further and let in the frenzy.
May we hold our heart funnels this month in the direction that will take us to peace and stillness. May we rest as we walk through the month of December.
Sending peace to you, wherever you may be.
