One way I like to share this is by creating an Advent garden. It starts simply enough, candles, rocks, crystals, stones. Every week adding one more of the four kingdoms of nature as we light one more candle. As we move through our Advent season, we experience the increase in light and deepen our understanding of our place in the universe, of all that sustains us, and to that to which we aspire.
This first week as we light our first candle we celebrate the Mineral Kingdom, that realm of nature that gives us form - a foundation in which to experience our everchanging lives.
The first light of Advent
It is the light of Stones.
The light we find in Crystals,
Seashells, Rocks and Bones.
