Winter Solstice 2014
a time of balancing – completing old business and welcoming in the New
Why Google has given the shortest day of the year a doodle?
Google has marked the shortest day of the year with an animated Doodle on its homepage.
The Doodle depicts a cartoon Father Christmas helping two children to build a snowman before the children’s mother appears and produces a carrot from her shopping bag to use as the snowman’s nose.
The winter solstice occurs when the sun’s daily maximum elevation in the sky is at its lowest and the North Pole is tilted furthest away from the sun. This results in the least number of daylight hours and the longest night of the year. This astronomical phenomenon occurs in December in the Northern Hemisphere and in June in the Southern Hemisphere.
The event has been marked by many cultures throughout history with festivals, rituals, celebrations and the mating of animals, and even today people gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise and sunset. The ancient stones are carefully aligned on a sight-line that points to the winter solstice sunset, and it is thought that this event was actually more important to those who constructed the site than the summer equivalent.

~RETURNING TO THE BEYOND~
Let us return unto our truest selves
Let us open to the Beyond
Beyond our sense of separation
Beyond our egos, beyond our minds
Beyond our limitations, beyond our wounds, beyond the past
Beyond history, beyond stories and concepts
Beyond hopes and fears
And simply open to encountering a new Divine Awareness
To guide our collective journey on planet Earth.
May the love generated on this Solstice Day
Touch all life everywhere … all beings, all creatures, all elements
Throughout all time and space.
