There is a time for everything including stillness. Nature forces it’s icy grip upon your body & soul, but not without purpose. Rather than force the flow, strive to suspend in frozen stasis. It is here that your perspective can shift. Here those patterns or attitudes etched into the ice can be witnessed & melted if you choose when the thaw comes.
I work as a part of nature, rather than apart from nature. There is no way forward but from the present moment. I sit, patiently, attuning myself to the silence & messages of that can only be received right here, right now.

Brightstave/Upright: Enhancement of self-consciousness & of ego awareness. Difficult situations are overcome with inner resources. Transition (not always easy) from one state of being to another. Time to pull back into the self without separating from the world. You need enlightened action to guide your steps in the possible transitions.
