Morning Meditation Sit 12.1.16
As the month of Kislev begins let’s ask:
What would it be like to welcome the dark?
To welcome what we don’t know
And cannot see?
What would it be like to welcome the darkness,
As a friend, a teacher,
The mind can say no,
The heart can constrict in fear,
And darkness will come, anyway.
What if we enter the dark like a dream,
And see it as a gateway to the Mystery--
A place where imagination flourishes,
Where messengers appear
And intuition and insights rise side by side?
Kislev, the darkest month of the year, beckons us forward
And dares us to break through
The confines of rationality.
Cultivate a courageous imagination, Kislev calls
And call forth the brilliant lights,
The outrageous lights, the awesome lights.
Together let us
Shine with steadfast love and strength
Within the Mystery of the dark.
