Winter is a time, symbolically, when all returns to what has given life and all the cycles are complete ... it is a time of physical and spiritual hibernation. A time to reflect on all that has been, all that has passed away ... all that is yet to be.
It is a time for discovering what is truly needed in your life for the coming year ...
For me, it is rediscovering the "spirit of repetition. "If you the lose the spirit of repetition, your practice, (your way) will become quite diffiicult."
It means taking it to the limit, one more time, despite the pain in the body, the heaviness of heart and the weariness of the mind -- until I understand and feel what it is to become the form.
Blessings and Light to all during this Season and in the coming year. May we all reach true Understanding ..
