Letting go of the old, creating space for the new-Happy Winter Solstice!

2010 December 21
by admin

Today we put the paddle boat away in the barn, reluctantly letting go of the warmer weather, and beginning to prepare the property for the winter. Each year, this ritual of letting go of the old season, and creating space for the new to settle in is bittersweet, yet expectant. When we created the space for the paddle boat, we discovered where our hens have been laying- 101 eggs were nestled up in the loft!dsc_0048 The hens had been hoarding their sweet fresh eggs, and as we cleared the space and filled our baskets, I could not help thinking that the resilient hens, discovering their nest disturbed would find a new space to lay the perfect eggs they give to us.
As we move through the Winter Solstice today, think of what spaces, internal and external, you can clear out to create room for the new things that are just waiting to delight and fill your life. You may have to find that space in an entirely new area- do not be afraid to do it!
I offer you this poem by Rumi-

If you pass your night
and merge it with dawn
for the sake of heart
what do you think will happen

if the entire world
is covered with the blossoms
you have labored to plant
what do you think will happen

if the elixir of life
that has been hidden in the dark
fills the desert and towns
what do you think will happen

if because of
your generosity and love
a few humans find their lives
what do you think will happen

if you pour an entire jar
filled with joyous wine
on the head of those already drunk
what do you think will happen

go my friend
bestow your love
even on your enemies
if you touch their hearts
what do you think will happen

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you
    know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
    I’d really appreciate it.
