Happy Thanksgiving - Merry Everything!It's that time of year again, coming into winter when the sun get's up late and goes down early. That means Thanksgiving and the coming holiday season is about to begin. I love this time. It's different all over the world depending on where you are. But, here up in the North East, in New England the tourists and part time residents have, for the most part, left. They'll come back next Spring. But, for now, the world is ours to ourselves. And locals get together to make the passing of winter less lonely and desolate. Like the sap in the trees this is a time to return to the earth and rest in wonderment and awe within the womb of life. It s a time for the little death - the one from which we are reborn, renewed and rejuvenated.

It would so easy to get caught up in the political frenzies making the news, and ignore the surrounding ebb and flow of the seasons as we transit thru the relentless beauty so subtle at times and at other times so overwhelming. It is important to participate in both and not get lost in either. The balance is in the dance of our awareness. We are indeed loved by every wisp of the breeze whether inside our hearts or outside our windows. I pay attention to both as best I can under usual conditions. At the deepest depth we are the witnesses to our own worlds. And for those who dare to peer behind the veil we can emerge up through the dizzying heights into a world beyond worlds. For that I am forever thankful - that is honest gratitude, awareness of grace and the real Thanksgiving.
