…Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness
anything or anyone
that does not bring you alive
is too small for you.
— David Whyte
I’ve written several times about the value of Endarkenment. Last night at our Red Tent Circle, we had a seed ceremony and talked about how beautiful things can take root in dark places. Time spent curled up in the dark is necessary before things can bloom.
Beautiful, I love how you need to be like a seed sometimes. Be in the dark before you can grow. In this dark time of the year it is necessary to be quiet and listen.
