The God connecting that goes on at this time of year is more about respect for a concept that real deep connection. I know that may seem blasphemous but it is true . We are worshiping symbols. Symbols though great revealers that they are they are not the essence. They are the decoder of the essence.
This season is abound with symbols many pagan such as the tree, the feasting, the light all pagan that the Christians adopted without any to do just attached them right on. They slid Baby Jesus right in under the tree, not literally but his Birth was placed right under the guise of Winter Solstice Celebration.Great way to get away with their celebration undetected.
I want to ask you, What are you celebrating at this time of year? No right nor wrong answer just look at what you are celebrating. Is this something you consciously choose? Something that was passed down to you? Do you really understand and find solace in your celebration? I would love to hear from you. It really is a time to take a long cold look at what we are doing with these Holy Days. Is it what we want to be doing?
Where is the sacred in your Holy Days? Are you having any direct connections to your own essence or is it just the symbol? The abounding joy. We will really know if it is ours by do we hit the wall when it’s all over. When January hits will you miss all the parties or will you still feel the party inside you that is always there?
This is time to understand that party has the word part as part of it. When it is time to part do you come apart? When it is time to part do you still carry the connection with you? What is your reaction to parting. We all want to be a part of things so our longing can be fulfilled. You have to have you to truly be a part of everything. You need a base, a foundation to build anything.
Know you you are the one. You are the awakening one find the essence don’t settle for the symbols no matter how lovely they may be.
