As you greet the Holy One at the arrival of the New Year, what is arising within you?
As you sit in the woods, reflect on your life. Ponder the part of your life that feels satisfying and rewarding: the dimension of it that is like the plenitude and fullness of an autumn harvest, the part that is mellow and fulfilling.
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?
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.
