This Revised Practice of Immediacy is called “Dharma of the Tipping Point.” That it emerged from the immediacy of NOW is no surprise given the tipping points our world is experiencing: fires, climate change, politics, technological and scientific advances, …..and the darkest time of the year, 12/21.
Yet a ‘tipping point’ is dharma too — we can forget that and get caught up in our desire to have things be the way we want them to be. There’s gold within our tipping points. Whenever we let go of our fixed views, fearlessness and inclusive mind are available and our natural joy can bubble up.
At this time of year, I like to do a Winter Solstice Renewal Ceremony I learned many years ago, enjoy!
"Remove yourself completely from the world, its noise and its demands.
Sit quietly and let your physical senses flow outward until you feel calm and empty.
Think of our current home, Planet Earth, by thinking of Nature. Feel yourself connected to Nature, to its vegetation, animals, the flow of its waters and the strength of its rocks and mountains.
Release everyone who has come into your life this year so that they are free to move in whatever direction they so choose.
And then, one by one, reintroduce your senses. First touch, then smell, then taste, then sound and lastly sight. Then light a single candle and let its radiance bathe across your face.
Lastly, remind yourself that you are an important member of the Universal family. Your position here is exactly what it is supposed to be, and your role is as important and singularly needed as that of any element of the Universal Whole.” Gregge Tiffen
Have a fulfilling Winter Solstice and the most enjoyable, nourishing experiences possible in 2018.
