The Longest Evening

Open your heart to let the spirit
Of the times better guide you
Along the path of the divine —
Oneness with the universe,
And all things eternal.

Relent for a moment,
That the mystery of your being,
That unique force within you
Can find peace and the strength
To overcome what stands before you.

Cast aside the ballast that burdens you,
But, not the memory of how it came to be,
Find the star that suits you
And follow it relentlessly,
No matter that you will never reach it.

For, it is not the end that matters,
But the how of your path,
For, the righteous find no glory
In an end with foul means.
Rejoice! The spirit is upon you.

The spirit is within you,
The Winter Solstice of 2022 has arrived!
