The change of seasons is refreshing! To me, it mirrors the change of our thoughts. As the earth rotates on its axis, we too continually evolve as we accept life’s ever-giving newness. We discover that what was once important to us becomes miniscule today because it no longer holds our full attention.
We wave goodbye to past events and bless every experience. Each one was there as a benchmark and phase of our growth. We simply turn the soil, gingerly water it and sprinkle in a few new seeds that will certainly yield a future harvest.
As the autumn leaves fall to the ground and the trees display their beautiful colors, we too can show our hues of accomplishment. We can shed light on what has been gained from those lessons learned. Like the fallen leaves, we too must cast off whatever no longer serves us. We welcome the showers and sprinkles that both cleanse the earth and spiritually clear our minds of the staleness of yesterday’s bread.
During this season of harvest, we should carefully bend down, gather the fruits of our labors, and place them in our personal cornucopias. We may be able to pause for a while as we rest on our laurels. But, then after giving thanks and gratitude for what the universe has offered us, we will know when it is time to rise from our times of reflection.
We will be alerted and know when it is time to walk into our new season and enter new cycles of production. We are still creating and much like the Energizer Bunny, we should beat our drums and keep it moving!
