Beauty, the Messenger of Truth: Winter Magic, 19

I have actually been at that junction
where two paths diverge in the woods,
and there, as in life,
I took the one less traveled by.

I wonder,
if I had known beforehand
the details of  the difficulties along the trail as yet untrod,
would I still make that choice?

And my answer then as always is,
why not?DSC_9396 2

Winter experiences remind me
to look to Nature
when I’m in a situation that is difficult.

I always admire those who are models of adaptation,
who move beyond surviving
and find a way to thrive…DSC_9282 3

About this time during winter,
instead of magic we can grow weary of the same patterns
day in and day out
that just seem to drag along,
making it feel that the changes that we seek that herald a new season
are no closer than they were yesterday.

Then it’s best to look for a beacon that draws us forward,
step-by-step
that helps us find the strength and endurance to keep going along our path
between one patch of light and the next…DSC_9325 4

Sometimes, when the light is just right,
my breath and the breath of the Earth become visible,
one mingling with the other,
blending in a way that helps me feel
part of something much larger than myself…DSC_9350 2

The magic that dances through a winter dusk
reminds us to follow the light
whenever we might feel lost…DSC_5386 2

There can be a bittersweet quality to this stage of winter–
when we’ve gained some insights from deep introspection
and yet, have not reached the time for actions and new awakenings.

Then, if poignancy slips over into loneliness or exhaustion,
it’s important to find teachers in Nature
who can help remind us how to stay with the process,
and create a context for perseverance and understanding
through connection with like-minded others…DSC_5240 3ps

The stark winter landscapes
remind us to look more closely at details,
giving us the ability to notice
what we might otherwise not even be able to see…DSC_5230 2a

Edges
seem to be sharper in winter,
giving us the opportunity
of Calling-up the stronger, more rugged parts of ourselves
to navigate day-to-day
through times
that can feel more challenging than we have anticipated…DSC_5281 2

Standing in the bitter cold of a winter’s day
provides proof  that whether we experience
desolation or stark beauty
is first affected by our circumstances.

It reminds me to be more compassionate
about the situation of those who are cold and hungry
and do more of what I can to help…DSC_5244 2
