Tis the Season...
This is my Christmas card this year and below are some of my holiday decor and tree ornaments, mostly hand made. What a busy time of the year for all of us. I rush around, trying to do too much. I have to make myself stop, look around, take a few breaths, and quietly savor the beauty around me.
Be helpless, dumbfounded, Unable to say yes or no.
Then a stretcher will come from grace to gather us up.
We are too dull-eyed to see that beauty. If we say we can, we're lying.
If we say No, we don't see it,
That No will behead us And shut tight our window onto spirit.
So let us rather not be sure of anything, Beside ourselves, and only that, so
Miraculous beings come running to help. Crazed, lying in a zero circle, mute,
We shall be saying finally, With tremendous eloquence, Lead us.
When we have totally surrendered to that beauty, We shall be a mighty kindness. --- Zero Circle by RUMI
Happy holidays, prosperous new year and as always... peace please.
