Our wholeness is seen, known, and cherished. There is a fullness, a coherence, underlying all the seeming brokenness and randomness. Despair does not have the final word. On this festival day of Christmas, Jesus again steps forward as the symbol of that wholeness — not to deflect attention to himself, but rather to help us trust in this mysterious underlying coherence and allow it to work within us to bring us to fruition.
A blessed Christmas, one and all!
…and may your holidays be bright! From all of us at Northeast Wisdom/ Wisdom Waypoints

May we all, no matter what path we are on, walk with fullness, wholeness,
coherence and light in our inner lives and into our work in the world.
