This time of year that can be a lot of talk about sadness and depression. Old hurts are coming up to be healed. Some people live in places where it gets quite dark by the winter solstice – almost here. That darkness can seem to lead to more sadness. It’s an external invitation to turn inward and find the light there – where it has always been.

Yesterday we went into a full moon and it’s the time of releasing – releasing that which no longer serves and getting ready to plant new seeds on the new moon January 1st. One thing that I had to release – and I’m so glad I did – is that I was really into the “specialness” of my moods, attitudes and drama. I felt so special because I felt so misunderstood. It was a reason for existing – or so I thought!

“When you are sad, know this need not be. Depression comes from a sense of being deprived of something you want and do not have. Remember that you are deprived of nothing except by your own decisions, and then decide otherwise.” (A Course in Miracles, Chapter 14, Section IV, This Need Not Be – Paragraph 5)

It can seem that the world has got us into that state of lack and limitation.
It can seem that things are being taken from us.
It can seem that what we want we do not have, cannot have, and will never have.

Appearances are all symbolic of our beliefs.
Let us heal the mind that believes in lack by identifying with our spiritual identity – which lacks in nothing – it IS that inner light.

I AM that great I AM. I AM the light. I AM the Love.

If you’re feeling depressed, feeling far from being light and love, know that it is your willingness to choose another thought that is your healer – count your blessings – Love and gratitude is the spiritual practice that heals.
