Sometimes we are startled into being fully awake, a loud sound, or an unexpected shake brings us to consciousness. Sometimes we take our waking slow, “learning by going where we have to go,” as poet Theodore Roethke explains. In this time of lengthening darkness and a sleeping earth, we ponder our opportunities to awaken, to come alive. This is the central purpose of spiritual practice and one of the reasons we join together in religious community. We are about the business of waking up, whether shaken alive by an angel in disguise, or slowly sensing our purpose as we tune in to the still small voice. In this month of darkness, we explore the twists and turns of awaking into the light.
