Winter solstice. Earth’s longest meditation of the year. Eyes closed. This lingering night. Inviting us to go deeper. Inspiring us to find truth in our own darkness. Asking us to stop and ponder life’s mysteries. Summoning us to reacquaint our self with our self. This energetic shift. This underlying voiceless natural readjustment as the light finally starts overtaking the darkness. Sun’s rebirth. The external sun that shines on our planet earth. And the internal sun that shines within each and every one of us. Can you feel it? There’s something about riding this time of the year. The first day of winter. Fat bike season. So fresh. So much hope. So much promise. Akin to our own rebirth. Bringing us back to who we were when we first came into this world. Back to our authentic self. Pure. Knowing. Trusting. Happy. No expectations. Wholly present in this moment. One. One with existence. One with this darkest night. Standing at this intersection between this dark ending and this bright beginning, have you noticed the emerging light shining on the new you? Happy winter solstice everyone !
