Somewhere in Ireland and Iowa my ancestors hold poetry in their closed eyes and silent tongues. Somewhere in Montana a baby deer is born and scrambling to be upright. From the quiet mountains of Tibet to the lazy shores of Cabo, a soundless strength beyond time and appearances connects us.
And somewhere here, right where you are, a greater aliveness is calling you to engage with life, to bring all that you are and contribute what you hold in your heart and hands. To begin living a fresh, evolving vision.
Follow the energy that brings a feeling of grounded aliveness. A small sweetness, a heart-truth, simple and ordinary, is also this moment’s genius and can be a boost for another person that you might never meet. Your energy, words, talent, kindness, wisdom, invention, hands, openness can support life’s launching pad for a sustainable future.
This season extends an invitation to come to responsibility – a capacity to respond openly to what is here. This represents a larger adjustment to inclusive ways. Inclusive of differences, uncertainty, joy and pain. Time-bound energy that has been suppressed may remind you that it, too, wants to come into presence. Energy wants to evolve in its true expression of light and join the fullness of life, not continue in isolated immaturity, hiding in dark corners of your body and mind.
All life is a spiritual path. The path is everywhere. This winter is a time for practical application. There is little that is more practical than recognition and expression of your authentic self. Nurture that which wants to come alive in your cells and your deeper vision. Then follow where this points.
You can start now by feeling what is as close as your breath — a timelessness older than time and as fresh as now. Consciously and actively rest in this as the details of today unfold.
