Did you ever notice how many spiritual paths have a most special holiday at the time of the Winter Solstice? Did you ever wonder why? It could begin with primitive people fighting to survive and, in order to survive, struggling to find order in the chaotic world they were put into! Imagine the joy of discovering the day when you knew that spring and summer would return, and that that winter would not last forever! Imagine learning that it was possible to plan!
Imagine also, the lore that would grow, including some which might not quite fit in, but others which did - and well.
And so, you can see the roots of some major blessings The Divine has for us!
