Soul Musings/Day 21: Dark Confessions


I stand before you (please visualize) and confess that I love the dark. Not to diss the light now but have you seen dark capitalized like Light is. I actually have been know to do this too.

If there is no good/bad or right/wrong then light is not better than dark.

This Solstice day of the most darkness fills me with pleasure as I wrap myself in it like a cloak of comfort. As Clark Strand says in his New York Times article (link below)

In times past people took to their beds at nightfall, but not merely to sleep. They touched one another, told stories and, with so much night to work with, woke in the middle of it to a darkness so luxurious it teased visions from the mind and divine visitations that helped to guide their course through life. “

Inspiring New Possibilities, Living From the Soul of Life While Co-creating Well Being of Body, Being, Heart and Planet….One Breath At A Time

Soul Musings is a 31-day practice for the month of December immersed in deep listening to what is emerging and unfolding day by day.  Eight sentences with occasional resources to explore more deeply.

Each post, invited by Soul, allows the words to emerge unscathed from prior planning, editing, or censorship.  Dwelling in uncertainty and dipping a toe into mystery this union of words is an attempt to resonate within an innate way of Being…. returning “home”.

To receive daily posts simply sign up for this blog and you will be notified through e-mail.  In addition there will be daily posts on the blogs below.  Thank you for being part of this practice with me!
