Gather Your Energies

       message Christmas 2016       

Tonight is the longest night of the year.
This winter season is a time for contemplation,
for drawing near to the Inner Fire,
a perfect opportunity for silence and stillness
and deep listening.
 
Wrap the darkness around you like a blanket.
There are gifts that can only be received
in the quiet hours.
The expansive opportunity of the New Year
will come soon enough.
 
For now,
listen to your heart.
Rest in the Spirit.
Receive the vision of Peace on Earth,
Goodwill to All.
Spiritual gifts are the best presents of all.
