Many animals are in the midst of hibernation for winter.
Bears for example, will go into hibernation in September and October, and not emerge until April. They enter into a suspended state, and will not resume their normal activity until six months later—half their year is spent in this deep state of rest.
Plants have also begun their deep withdrawal, going dormant or underground, waiting for spring.
Why is it then, that PEOPLE feel the need to get EXTRA active in winter? With bustle and shopping and busyness? As if they are fighting off every suggestion or craving or need to rest, with more and more activity?
When did we become afraid of the dark, the night, the stillness?
What if we let ourselves rest?
What if we let ourselves get still?
What if we allowed ourselves to go dormant?
The season ahead is a time when we are meant to regroup, regather, recharge. It is a time for processing the year we've had already, and for sorting and sifting through what we will keep, and what we will leave behind when the new year comes.
If you allow yourself to rest, you will not be disappointed.
