(of an army) Withdraw from enemy forces as a result of their superior power or after a defeat.
An act of moving back or withdrawing.
retire - withdraw - recede - fall back - draw back
retirement - refuge - withdrawal - recession - shelter
Shelter. Refuge. But mainly withdrawal for me. A time of reflection and a gathering of spirit. Refreshment - to revitalize. Affirm the beauty of the earth. Invigorate the spirit.
Know that the power of goodness, kindness and love exists in this world and we can make it in this image rather that those of the opposing forces which are all about money.
I project love. Love returns.
Back from a weekend of spiritual retreat, where the sun shone and stones were cast in the waters of the lake as we stood barefoot in the sand while the wind blew around, through and on us, unwrapping layer upon layer of self. All is exposed to the light of day. And drums beat to the rhythms of our hearts far into the night. And joy shook me to my foundations.
All is well.
