The Zephyr December 2021
21 December 2021
Dear Companions on the Path,
These lines will reach you on the day of the Solstice. In the northern hemisphere, as we know, this is the darkest day of the year. It is also the beginning of light’s ascendancy. Light emerges from darkness and returns to it, just as the visible manifests from the invisible only to eventually return home to the unseen. And the cycle continues.
For some, the last days of the solar year will be a festive time, a time to briefly put aside work and spend some happy moments with friends, neighbors, and family. For others, it’s a time for quietude, inwardness, and communion with the holy mystery that is discovered in silence. For many, the birth of the Christ Child will be a central theme of remembrance.
Here in Richmond, the Astana will be closed for a few days. I look forward to seeing you this afternoon, and again on New Year’s Day.
If you find yourself lonely this holiday season, please remember that you are dearly loved. Let’s all find ways to remind each other of that Divine truth, with words and wordlessly.
