I'm honoring the crystal star and the stars inside us all with this Winter Solstice mandala. Yesterday a friend shared this poem with me by Rahima Warren, who graciously gave me permission to reprint it here.
Winter solstice is a time for
entering the luminous darkness
of the Longest Night,
opening to the Yin
resting in the Cosmic womb
source of all creation
in the gentle darkness we can see
the subtle light of our soul-stars.
Can you see your Self shining
there, a star in the silent firmament?
Now the Deepest Darkness holds a seed of LightBlessed be to you all on this darkest night of the year. May we all find our invincible light and be willing to shine bright and be who we came here to be in the days to come.
waiting to be born into the world,
into our lives, into our hearts.
