The shortest day of the year is behind us again. We humans have worshiped the sun and celebrated the Solstice as the cyclical conquering of light over darkness since we learned how to shade our eyes from its glare. Christianity's Jesus, though he may have been an actual enlightened human, is also a conglomeration of pagan sun gods, christs, and buddhas*.
For your eyes: A Heinrich Hoffman BUFF Jesus wrapped in light, as seen shortly after kicking darkness' tail to the curb.
May the necessity of darkness provide you with introspection, moments of close contact with those you love, and quiet rest. May the light continue to spread into the darkness and present you with new growth, happiness, warmth, and energetic love.
"walk as children of light....trying to learn what is pleasing to your god." Eph. 5:8-10
