|Yule Wreath 2009|
Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice, Yule.
It is the longest night of the year.
A few times I've stayed up the entire night to
greet the Sun the next day - honoring the transition -
knowing soon the days will be longer again.
Most of us become more reflective at this time of year -
we start thinking,
"With a new year coming up,
there can be a new beginning."
It's almost like a do over.
I always ask,
"Am I being true to my authentic being?
What would my highest self say?"
I hope that you dare to live your life's calling.
I hope that you are true to yourself.
Apollo, ancient god of the Sun now hear my call,
Bring illumination whether rain or snowflakes fall.
On this the darkest and longest of winter's bleak nights,
I celebrate the return of the Sun's strength and light.
May my own truth shine free for all to see,
And as I will it, then so must it be.
