Sun King Soup ~ The winter solstice marks the return of the sun, as it begins to make its way back towards the earth. Celebrate this festival of light with a nice rich bowl of Sun King Soup -- the bright sun colors and smooth texture are just the thing for either an appetizer, or a light meal at Yule.
Live like a Lotus A lotus flower grows in very shallow water, usually in a muddy area. Though it comes out of the mud and mire, it rises as a beautiful flower that lives in the water without being affected by it. It is said, “Live like a lotus in the water.” The flower turns its head towards the sun always. That means it always turns towards the light; it receives the light constantly. It is an ever-enlightened flower.
