QuoteWorthy: “The older I become…”

Dream Idyll - A Valkyrie, 1902, by Edward Robert Hughes.
Dream Idyll – A Valkyrie, 1902, by Edward Robert Hughes.

Another ‘Tis the Time and Season‘ reflection, stirred and updated from the Sophia’s Children treasure-vaults (so very Uranus-Pluto!).

Whether we’re in the deep-Yin season of Winter, settling into night from day, or in a Winter-season in our own lifecycle journey, it’s always wise to honor the restoration that will otherwise stalk and have its way with us in other (usually less pleasant) ways.

Plus, Wisdom and Wisdom-sourced vision gestate from and are more easily called up in this season, and with the current archetypal energies in which we dance and swirl right about now.

Happy dancing, swirling, and deep restoration.

Big Love and Be Well,
Jamie

Sophia's Children

Sybil, by the artist Edward Coley Burne-Jones Sybil, by the artist Edward Coley Burne-Jones

“The older I become,

the more I sense,

the less I speak,

the more I pray —

in ever so many ways.”

I included this wonderful reflection from Clarissa Pinkola-Estes’ book Untie the Strong Woman in a previous Sophia’s Children post you might enjoy:

Storms, Cycles & Black Madonnas

And other mentions of Clarissa Pinkola-Estes in my Reasserting Our Wildish Nature post, and in an homage to the honoring of Deep Yin and the Circadian Rhythms of Winter, in the Sophia’s Children treasure vaults.

A Musingly Yours,

Jamie

Drinking Alone at the Well of Wisdom

In an externalized culture with a bias toward extroversion, introversion, solitude, quiet, stillness, and drawing inward can be an anathema to some and downright terrifying to others. And yet we know, more and more, the costs of perpetual extroversion and... Continue Reading →
