As we move through the holiday season of 2019, I am moved to find deeper meaning in at all. In so many cultures and so many religious traditions there is a special focus on this time of the year. December 21st marks the winter solstice; this is where winter officially begins on the calendar. It also means that each day after the 21st will bring a slightly longer day. “The return of the light”. Not only is this true in terms of planet earth’s orbit around the sun, it is also true in terms of the deeper meaning that our holidays have for me personally. Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, Mohammed, they all brought in more light. During this worldwide time of polarization and conflict, it helps me to remember that we are returning to the light. I hope it helps you as well.
