Today at sunset Hanukkah – The Festival of Lights begins. The celebration will last until December 23rd. The eight day celebration commemorates the rededicaton of the Temple of Jerusalem and the “miracle of the oil”, in which there was enough oil found in a flask to light the menorah for one day, but it miraculously lasted for eight.
Hanukkah is a story of faith; of personal and religious freedom. It is a story of what can be required to secure these freedoms and through the struggles, the gifts and miracles which manifest when we live our truth.
Happy Hanukkah to one and all. May we know more deeply our truth and may the miracle of devotion fill our hearts, our homes and our world with the infinite light of Love.
