Beyond Faith

The days of greatest and deepest darkness are upon us. Now is the time when we must stand beyond faith and know that the sun will return to warm us and illuminate our path. In ancient times, how frightening it must have been to not know that the growing darkness would not swallow the earth forever, that the nurturing and life-giving orb in the sky was not about to disappear, never to return. Our far distant ancestors were impelled to create rituals that would invite the light to return. As we light our candles to dispel the darkness, we reach back in time, in community with our earlier selves. Namaste!
