The Renewed Sense of Longing for the Beloved During the Holiday Season

It is not uncommon for deep feelings of longing to surface during the holiday season. As we unplug from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, something else takes over -- the recognition of what it is we have always been longing for. Sometimes we interpret this as "sadness" and make ourselves wrong for what we are feeling. No need for that. There is a divine kind of sadness that needs to be celebrated -- the ancient quest within us all for the Beloved -- no matter what we call it.
