A deep layer of snow blankets a pristine winter woods landscape - what a favorite scene for us all this time of year.
A beautiful and serene wonder of nature occurs when colorless water paints the world white with the magical frosting of the first snowfall. We have an innate attraction to such natural beauty - giving us peace, security and joy.
Perfect snowflakes are energetic vibrations converted into substance - energy frozen into matter - crystallized pure water. Energy turns into matter and vice versa in the continuous dance of this universe surrounding us. We have a vibratory nature as divine beings. We are composed of energy and matter; our energetic components include chemical, biochemical and electrical energies, which are well understood.
Our spiritual and psychic natures are driven by subtle energy, which remains more elusive. Subtle energy affects our being on all levels.
Of course we know that there is more to reality, to the infinite Cosmos, than we can percieve directly. We accept this because we have been warned since childhood that there is "more to it than you can see"; however we are too rooted to the physical, the material - to things that we can see with our own eyes... we rely too much on our sense of sight. In this spiritual season - get beyond the physical - extend your consciousness & your view of the universe.
