The holy season begins. The big challenge is to stop the commercial
feeding frenzy, and to feed our souls instead.
Try to break the cultural (anti-cultural?) trance today. Remember who
you are: a person connected to the ancestors…to kin…to descendants…to
the Holy Powers…to the natural world.
Light a candle tonight, for the practice of Industriousness.
But you've been industrious.
Right now it is time to do something else, to reap the rewards of your industriousness. Stop the action. Take a break. Go look at the stars or listen to the rain fall or feel the warmth of the fire or touch someone.
Thus begins this Yuletide.
Happy Mother's Night,
Steve and Sheila
