In New England, Sugar on Snow means packing a bowl with snow and pouring boiling maple syrup on top. The syrup hardens and forms taffy. Chewy and sweet.
As so often during this past year, i decided to DIY--make my own.
Boil the maple syrup to 235 degree (soft ball stage on a candy thermometer).
Pack a bowl with snow. Last night's snow was light and fluffy. This morning's snow is heavy and wet. Heavy is good.
Pour the hot syrup over the snow.
Spiritual practice is another DIY thing. No one else can do it for you. You already know the recipe.
Meditate or pray. 20" a day is a good start. Use a timer.
Read a spiritual book.
Meet with your spiritual friends at least once a week and meditate together.
The heart softens, and practicing kindness becomes easier and easier.
