The meaning of Winter.
Where at it’s beginning we gather.
We gather together.
Preparing to gather within.
Celebrating the opening of receptivity.
The willingness to receive,
comes with gathering around the willingness to give.
Tis the season for intentional solitude.
Retreat and restoration.
It is a restful time.
Filled with reflection and deep inner travel.
– Within –
It is the time of pure receptivity.
Listening and relaxation.
It is the full ebb.
Contracting, to come home.
Home to oneself.
To one’s core.
Returning to center.
Winter is the silence.
The standing stillness.
It is the caregiving of your body,
that the soul already knows how to do.
Winter is the womb where Spring finds the room,
to give way to Summer where she is in full bloom.
Then falls into Autumn like the leaves to their resting tomb.
We find ourselves.
In the deep Winter of our womb.
