At this, the darkest time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, life invites us to take lots of quiet, reflective time, to go within to our inner being, step back from the activities of the world, and simply BE. Are you doing this for yourself?
Personally, I feel I am being called to rest and be quiet. There is a new energy coming into the world, and it is only in quietness and stillness that we can really recognise and receive its energy and power. This is witnessed in the Gospels when Jesus took himself apart from the world to pray – to be with his Abba.
As we rest in spiritual stillness, our Pure Self can experience its perfection, its fullness, its true light, which is so much more than our bodies, minds and lives.
At the turn of this New Year, let us all welcome in the abiding experience of our True Being. And know, with gratitude and expectation, that Spirit is working through you, me, all of us, to bring forth the fullness of the Christ energy.
This is the call – this is the awakening invitation … are you listening?
For our deepest joy comes when we really experience our spiritual self that has no separate identity – it simply is and rejoices in Being. Let us rejoice and BE, together.
