“From the Ancient Wisdoms to Quantum Physics,
It's All About the Energy!”

     It is winter now, and the first snowfall of the season has begun.
     From misty clouds the Aether transforms into tiny crystals of matter,
     Like sparkling diamonds, reflecting the Light of their Source within.
     ... Just like us.

     Some flakes drift gently in their lazy descent to the ground,
     Others are blown about by the winds of lessons and karma
     As they plunge toward their destiny through space and time.
     ... Just like us.

     In their natural frozen state, each flake is flawlessly balanced,
     symmetrical, perfectly proportioned, and yet,
     Each one is distinct, unique, no two alike.
     ... Just like us.

     And through the long winter months, most of them wait silently
     For the change of season, but some go out of their way to be of use
     To others, providing joy and sustenance to the earth and all its tenants.
     ... Just like us.

     And those few whose earthly life is of one of joyful service and assistance
     Form the living backbone that sustains all other forms of life on earth
     For yet another year. Their mission complete, they are satisfied, fulfilled.
     ... Just like us.

     And when the warmth of spring arrives, they thaw and diminish.
     Tired and weary, some are soiled by the mud on which they lie
     While others impetuously run fast and clear to their journey’s end.
     ... Just like us.

     There, each precious flake dies to the life of material form
     Into a new life of Aether and Spirit, its eternal essence,
     Returning home to Source from whence it came.
     ... Just like us.

     When it is ready, Aether once again transforms into matter, each drop
     Choosing what it needs to grow in wisdom, falling as an April shower, a mighty
     Tempest, a mist in the forest, a desert deluge, or once again as a snowflake.
     ... Just like us.

     How beautiful the softly falling snow!
     ... Just ... like ... us.

Wishing you and yours a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
