Rebirth of the Sun
are approaching the shortest day of the year. Winter is almost over.
We still have more cold days and nights ahead but light is about to
return and with it comes the birth of the Sun again. I find particular
joy and reverence in acknowledging the commonalities that all spiritual
traditions share. It seems that most spiritual and cultural traditions
celebrate very important birthings in the month of December. In this
way it seems that all traditions are Earth-Based. We share a world together.
We share living space. We share the breath of life together. We each
have a body, a spirit, a mind to bring us into contact with each other.
We each get to choose what we do with this contact. Sometimes, maybe
even often, I so take for granted my life, I lose contact with my life,
I forget that I always have choice! Sometimes I let Earth-Based mean
sense consciousness only. I forget that I am truly Spirit in manifestation.
To me, that means that I am here to fulfill a larger purpose than what
ego has in mind. I can be so swept away by the guilt, blame, shame game
that I completely forget that the vitalizing Spirit of Love is always
available to me. I need only to stop and open to a much larger perspective
than what personal ego can ever show me!
As I experience these December days and nights I celebrate the birth
of the Sun and the birth of the Spirit of Love that heals all hurts,
brings peace where there is none, and joy where there is none. I bring
awareness to lessons I need to learn and old patterns I need to drop.
I bring awareness to the living reality that every moment is a celebration
of the Spirit of Love in me if I will let it be! Every moment! I choose
whether I want to live that possibility. That power is in me and all
of us! I can bring new life to my physical heart by this magnanimous
attitude. I can redefine "enemies" as treasured lessons in
love and openness and discernment that live beyond crushing self-critical
judgment. Do you think you could join in that transformation too? Do
you realize that all "dis-ease", all lack of any kind is transformed
by the birth of Love within us? What treasured gifts would you like
to bring into your life? By your thoughts and words and actions you
tap into the invisible Source that already enfolds all possibility.
Hold that potential in heart and mind and it will come into being. That
is what is called the Law of Manifestation. Each one of us is the architect
of this Law. Thoughts we hold in mind create in physical reality exactly
what we dwell on each moment. If I concentrate on Love I manifest Love.
If I concentrate on lack I manifest lack. It is that simple and that
powerful. It is transformative!
As I move through these December days and nights I hold steadfastly
to the Truth that lives beyond what sense-based appearances seem to
indicate and I call forth the power and the wisdom that always is accessible
right within me and all of us. By daring to be all that we can presently
imagine, and more, the doors to manifestation open and the new birth
is made visible right here, right now.
Happy new birth to you!
