Life is a massive gray scale this time of year. This is the time of year we are called to lie fallow, examine our lives and embrace the empty cold. Look at the naked tree that has surrendered her leaves to the earth so she can stand still, alone, silent as she waits for the return of the warmth of spring. Each of us is called to stand alone, still and silent in this sacred season to examine our lives.
Are you what you wanted to be in life right now? If not make a list of why you are not. Be kind and honest with yourself. What can you do to shift the tide of your life? This is a good season to begin spiritual practices that will enrich your life. Winter’s soul is calling each of our souls to be still, receptive and aware as we examine our lives.
