Today is the darkest day of the year.

The longest night.  A time for inner stillness and reflection.  A time to rest.

The silence of winter covers the land and even the waters are still and frozen.  In much of the Northeast, the fields glisten with a frozen shell of snow.  Their clarity reflects the purity of heart that we are claiming this season. Their mirrored surface reflects  the wisdom and insights that arise from inner stillness.

If possible, take a mindful walk outside today.  Bundle up and feel the deep rest of the natural world.  Breathe in the stillness and breathe out a blessing to all God’s creatures:  “May there be peace on earth and goodwill to all beings.” 

From all of us here at BeWell Associates, may your Holidays be peaceful and your travels be safe.
