A Yule Prayer


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.

Blessed be!

Your an insightful person. To be aware of your own thoughts and struggles is something I must do a better job at. Thank you for being so open, it helps others.

Thank you @bleedingfinger. Sometimes I wonder if this blog serves for something more than to myself. Thank you for reminding me that it can be otherwise.

As you have said, some problems take a lifetime to solve. Remember though to be sure the problem is really yours and not theirs. If someone else cannot accept something, then it's their problem. They have to be the one to solve it.
