It’s not even past.” So, how do we as spiritual people honor the struggles of the past, even as we expect and work for better times in the future? Perhaps the Roman god, Janus, from which we get the name of the month of January, might offer aid in discernment. Janus had two heads: one looking back towards the past, and the other facing forward toward the future. The figure of Janus inspires us to reflect upon our past, as we declare our intentions for our future.
