“Always be on the look out for the presence of wonder.” E.B. White, American writer
As I write this newsletter on Christmas Eve I’m filled with wonder! I’m reflecting on the Christian tradition of what Christmas means. I imagine the wonder that must have been felt so many years ago. As I reflect I’m so grateful that 2021 has brought so many opportunities to immerse myself in beauty, be amazed and surprised! It’s also brought chaos, change, gratitude, and opportunities to grow personally – to BE more aware and live more consciously. I’ve noticed that when I accept situations rather than resist them and I’m more present and don’t worry about the future my life flows with ease and grace. I still imagine a world that I want to live in – a world full of love, peace, and beautiful and wondrous possibilities. When will my new world happen? I trust it’s happening now. Being comfortable in what I will call ‘the mystery’ is easier some days and not as easy on others. How about you?
Energetically we’re moving from 2021, a year of individual change and transformation into 2022, a year to explore relationships with family, children, community and even pets! Also, there will be opportunities to trust your instincts, nurture yourself, find balance in your life, help others, and open to wonder! Let yourself feel the healing beauty of nature and love. Let go of the need to know how the experiences will appear. Allow for the surprise and wonder! Albert Einstein, Theoretical physicist reminds us that, “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” In other words, invite your imagination for many ‘play dates’ and go crazy! There are no limits.
During these holidays please take time for self-care! Lean more into the wonder and beauty of the holidays and let yourself be amazed and surprised! Using your deep breathing techniques to help release tension and stress. In your quiet moments recognize the ‘mystery’ and life that surrounds you. Anagarika Govinda, Founder of the order of the Arya Maitreya Mandala, painter, and poet has said, “The feeling of awe and sense of wonder arises from the recognition of the deep mystery that surrounds us everywhere, and this feeling deepens as our knowledge grows.” Enjoy ‘feeling’ more than ‘doing’ as new possibilities open for 2022!
