As I get older I am starting to appreciate the byproduct of going through challenging times:
the possibility of cultivating greater resilience, growth and hopefully,
greater compassion and wisdom.
If nothing else, I learned a lot this year
As you reflect on what has passed and what is calling.
I hope you can take the time you need to sense what most enlivens you
in the year ahead and move toward that.
December kicks off a time of reflection for me, a practice I’ve done for 5 years.
In it I attempt, with as much honesty as possible, to answer three questions-
What didn’t work?
What calls me in 2021?
who is the calling for?
inquiry for today~ what have you lost? what is found again?
People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul.
One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.
