Winter Journey: Walk In The Rain, Walk Into Freedom

A lot of us use the winter time to commune with our complaining side. The cold, the rain, the snow all join our list of complains. Many times I believe we are even fearful of the weather. The uncomfortable feeling of the cold rain make us fearful of going out because it might make us…

Winter Journey: Searching For Clarity In The Darkness

One more winter journey article to helps us move through this winter. As the days become darker we may be invited to relinquish the clarity we so tightly hold. Clarity is our aid and our enemy, our protector and our guard. Let us see when and how clarity can be at times relinquished and allow…

Winter Journey: The Conversational Aspects Of Silence

Once again I continue my posts on the Winter Journey. We can all this winter undertake a great journey and really use the winter time as a wonderful teacher. In this life we don’t want to waste one minute if we can instead be learning something new about this incredible universe. This incredible universe holds an…

Winter Journey: Your Mind’s Winter Garden

In my last post I have talked about being like the leaves in autumn or like the trees in winter and allow for space and silence to enter our lives. Today I will specifically focus on the topic of space. I was completely ready to jump on a new winter journey topic, but there is…
