Winter solstice is approaching. The darkness will start slowly abating, receding.
Lately I was thinking that I was doing better in a particular issue in my life. An incident yesterday reminded me that those issues are still there burning hot with confusion. My first reaction was despair. As well as a bit of an anger towards the person that reminded me of this issue.
Then slowly the Universe sent some messages through. The problem is no solved, far from it and maybe it will take a long time to do so. I suspect a life time process by the feel of it. So if I could express a prayer for Yule it would thus:
Help my darkness to be an asset to my spiritual growth.
Help me shine light.
Perceive the shadows of my thoughts.
Yule Spirit help me keep that candle burning.
For Light defines Darkness
And Darkness celebrates Light.
