Daily Meditation for December 28, 2023

Now is the time of fresh starts. This is the season that makes everything new. There is a longstanding rumor that Spring is the time of renewal…but Spring is too busy about itself to be the best time for reflection, regrouping, and starting fresh. For that, you need December. You need to have lived through the mindless biological imperatives of your life (to bud, and flower, and show off) before you can see that a landscape of new fallen snow is THE REAL YOU. December has the clarity, the simplicity, and the silence you need for the best FRESH START of your life.
