water & Winter

As the year draws to an end the earth withdraws into itself, and so do we.   Winter is the time when we focus on our basic selves, our core being, hibernating, resting and retreating until the shoots of spring appear.   In this resting place water gives us the capacity and wisdom to recognise our true selves and identity.  Its power is our power, water gives life to all things and in that offers us absolute reassurance in the constancy and continuum of the cycle.  This peaceful place is where we find our true confidence and our natural ability to move with the flow. The calmness of winter and it quietness show us the peace that resides within each of us and how essential it is that we return to this within every cycle.
