One of my favorite thoughts to reflect on this time of year is from Fulton Sheen, who said that it should be no surprise that the magi returned home by another route, for no one comes to Christ
and goes back the same way!
I absolutely love this thought.
Perhaps this year, your encounter with Christ
will take you down a different road.
God promises epiphanies in our lives
and then guides us in their direction.
Practicing yoga teaches us to be present.
And being present teaches us to listen
so that we might be aware of what
direction God is guiding us in.
The Magi listened and responded.
Let’s get quiet together on our yoga mats
so we can do the same.
Need a little inspiration this week to get the new year started? I highly recommend these two very different and excellent homilies. Listen and let me know your own thoughts.
