Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!

Share
Both Christmas and Hanukkah celebrate the joy and profound mystery of light in the darkness. When we follow the path of eating disorder recovery we learn more about light and darkness than we ever dreamed possible.

The Mystery
I wish you light. And I wish you darkness, too. Why? That's part of the great and wondrous mystery. Without darkness we would not know the meaning or experience of light. Without light we would not know the meaning or experience of darkness. One cannot exist without the other. This is different from taking the good with the bad. This is different from taking turns. And this is different from any discussion about opposites.

Darkness and Light as One
Darkness and Light together as one concept is as close as I believe we can get to darkness and light as one nameless completiion. We mortals can get high on light. We can get somber in prolonged darkness. We can also get clarity in the light. And we can reach deep understanding and insight in the dark.

Being Fully Alive
Being fully alive in this world involves our being able to reside within the complete darkness and light of all things . So when we celebrate life we celebrate both light and darkness. We celebrate the darkness of the earth and within the womb for that brings forth life. We celebrate the light for that allows us vision and sustains life.

Holiday wishes
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to you, my friends I know and have yet to know. Please remember eating disorder recovery, wherever you are in your journey, means we must continually pass through times of light, times of darkness and lightness again. Each time we come up from the dark we have new personal treasures to bring to the light which enhance our healing. I wish you a loving holiday with shared tenderness and caring throughout the coming year throughout the darkness and the light of your days.
