What a special day! How magnificent that we celebrate this great power of light and positive energy so near the darkest, shortest day of the year.
This the day of birth…of dawn and all things positive…peace…inner silence…calm…positive hopes of goodness for all…and the knowledge that no time is ever too late… because the darkest hour and deepest silence are the seeds for the greatest music and brightest light.
Here is a reminder of the spirit of Christmas joy from The Winter Solstice, the Sacred Traditions of Christmas by John Mathews.
“There is a moment of silence that occurs every year, somewhere between the dawn of Christmas and the setting sun on Christmas day itself. – a moment we have all experienced once in our lives, maybe more than once. It can silence a great city, London or New York , and it can bring stillness to our hearts, whoever and wherever we may be. It offers the promise of new beginnings, of the clean slate of a new year, and it incorporates the breathless expectancy of Christmas night itself, when a familiar figure enters our lives and changes them briefly.”
Merri and I send our best wishes that each of you, our friends, are filled with inner joy and peace at this special time of celebration and every day the next year through.
