Beauty, the Messenger of Truth: Winter Magic, 8

In times when we are unsure about what we are experiencing,
the winter light helps us to remember to pay attention,
to take time to sort through any confusion
and mixed-up perceptions
so that we can get our bearings
and make a conscious choice about which direction to go…

It is always useful to find the delight that balances out the challenges in life.

Experiencing the Beauty
of the unique quality of light
found in a winter sunset
more than makes up for the freezing temperatures and numbing winds
that are the challenges of imprinting the scene into memory…DSC_8760 2a

At times,
when the reality of winter–and all its metaphors–
feels frozen and bleak

then I try to see things through the eyes of the child
who still feels the magic of a first snowfall…DSC_8931 2

The magical light of a winter dusk,
is like that of no other season,
and evokes a pristine quiet
that is both within and without
overlapping in such a way
that it is difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins…DSC_8829 2

Winter magic often helps focus on the complexity
that is always there
but somehow more succinct in light
that is frozen in time,
pointing out details
that might otherwise go unnoticed
and inviting us to contemplate
the deeper aspects of our experiences…DSC_9195 2

Winter magic sometimes includes an unexpected reminder
that in the midst of situations that feel frozen and forlorn,
we still have the capacity for
courage
determination
perseverance
resiliency
and hope…
appropriate on this day that invites us to remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and all of those others throughout time who have embodied these qualities…DSC_9160 ps2nx

Majestic,
invoking awe
of such a terrible Beauty
beyond our control
that ┬áit takes our breath away…DSC_9178 2nxps

in the silence of a misty winter morning
there’s a direct invitation from Mystery

Beauty, the Messenger of Truth: Darkness and Light, 3

There is something about standing on the Earth
in the velvety, sacred darkness of a winter’s night
that brings a feeling of awe and wonder
as the larger Universe reveals itself…DSC_7495 3
