Does it serve?

liberty quote 5

The time between Solstice and Imbolc has long been a time of reflection for me and this year is no exception.

I have a very long held belief about something I have always “known” was a need. A need that was crucial to my growth, both personally and spiritually. I am now faced with the distinct possibility that rather than being a need, it is actually a want. Quite possibly a want that does not actually serve at all.

I am sitting with this. Have been sitting with this. How will my life change if it turns out this “need” is simply a want and it actually doesn’t serve? What happens when what I believed to be essential really doesn’t serve at all?

Good questions to sit with through the dark nights of winter.

      Thank you Amoret. This time around feels different. The idea of my freedom, my and community’s liberty depend on discerning these questions has an added weight. That along with the shift of a need to a want…yup it’s gonna take some more sitting.
