There are a lot of rituals, and history connected with the December Solstice.
For thousands of years, this period of the year was celebrated in various ways, across a lot of different religions and cultures, and even nowadays it still exists.
We may feel that magic in the air or also notice it in people around us, or even hear it in some different music. During this period, some strong emotions and feelings are also evoked in every one of us, and they may return for some time.
It will be time to find happiness and joy and to celebrate. Also, during this period, people can utilize all of the powers that the Sun has to achieve their dreams and follow their wishes. They should light themselves up and see this world lighted up too.
Although the two expressions can be entirely different, every one of them will help in achieving the same goal.
The Winter Solstice is all about honoring the fact that even though we can see the longest day, darkness is going to come once again, and even though we can see the longest night too, light is also going to come once again.
Even though we experience duality, every single thing will be the same. Light cannot be perceived without first perceiving darkness, and summer cannot be understood until we understood and saw the winter. These two concepts need each other to have sense and be real. There is just one real state, and everything else is illusions. So, we are just one, the light and the dark are also one, and we are nothing or also everything all simultaneously.
During the solstice in the winter season, people are often reminded that regardless of the darkness of the night, the light is always going to come back. Also, irrespective of the day’s light, the darkness is always going to come back.
We are living in the world in which we may be happy for one moment and the next one, we will be sad. So, in just one instance, our life may change completely. In only one moment, we can face death or pain, or also pleasure or birth.
We are living in this world in which every shade exists, the high and the low, the victory and the struggle too.
Even though they may look like a different state of being, they can be part of anything more significant, such as wholeness. We come to the human state to experience every shade, color, and expression of the emotional rainbow too.
Also, we come to suffer, find joy, thrive or find pain, as well as experience all that as we know that it will make us whole.
We should also honor every cycle, and remember that it is not everything in how often we venture in darkness or even in the light, but it is in how we permit these states to move us, change us, as well as soften us or awaken us to wholeness, love which resides around.
