Here I am surrounded by trees filled with fruit, gardens filling up with ripening vegetables, flower beds in the prime of their life. This is my gift to those who embrace my warm, nurturing breath.
Lean close to the land and touch the soil. Can you hear the pulse of my life in the earth’s heart? Can you sense the enthusiasm I have for each new movement of life?
This magnificent refuge is inside you.
On this day of Epiphany, as we look back on the year past, and look forward to the year ahead, let us pause together to seek the Presence of the Divine for guidance, discernment, and fellowship.
As today we honor the Longest Night, simply sit with this lovely image and poem from my colleague Kelly Tan. As you receive this poem, consider these questions and whatever else may be arising for you.
