The light is always there


File:Bare Tree 2.jpg

The shortest days of the year. Our ancestors feared that the sun has lost the battle and that darkness could win the day. However, moments of light and darkness alternate in every life. No matter how dark a place we find ourselves in from time to time,  or how deeply we feel buried,  if we come to see that all circumstances change and pass away,  we get in touch with a deeper, more natural wisdom. Each moment is complete, even if it is not perfect. We can hold moments of darkness without completly identifying with them.

Deep in their roots,

all flowers keep the light.

Theodore Roethke, American Poet
