Good morning, and peace to you this day in the light. As the air turns colder, the geese flee, and the wind speaks of winter’s horizon, I am reminded of the strange timing of all things. “To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.” Whether by fate or chance, we are each steered through this world, pulled by things unseen along currents we cannot understand.
It is useless, I think, to deny the presence of this underlying current. We cannot know all the turns of our path, all its intersections. The only thing we can do is follow the path ahead of us, address our circumstances as they are, and allow ourselves to accept opportunities the Light provides us. When we allow life to unfold in all its raw and genuine splendor, we glimpse the greater plan, and for a moment, we do not feel so alone.
Change is difficult. The unexpected is startling. Life will present us with things we never imagined. The world is full of the strange and marvelous. The less we resist its strangeness, the more quickly we can enjoy what this world has to offer, and start leaving our marks on it. Let us, then, submit to being conduits of Light, instruments of the Plan, and meet each day of life with open eyes and a welcoming heart.
Amen and namaste.
