The experiences of Autumn teach us about letting go to let come, about the ever present cycles of nature that help us belong.
For many of us, Autumn is a time of mystery as we watch the leaves turn colors, drop from their trees and create humus for new growth.
Autumn takes on the beauty of all the seasons, brings us truth in the October skies and alerts us in our reflections to be wise.
The season of Autumn teaches us about letting go, letting be and celebrating the gift of being free to shed all that’s no longer necessary.
The passive energy of soul can transcend and include the active ego energy while transforming and reconciling it to a new dance.
We humans are an integral part of every season’s enduring message of renewal and have been even before we discovered fire.
September, when in the Northern Hemisphere Mother Nature transforms the landscape with cool air and abundant harvests of change that remind us of the cyclical and flowing nature of our lives.
As Labor Day rapidly approaches and Summer rains turn to Autumn leaves; the days grow shorter while the nights grow longer.
Might the wonder of summer simply be the amazing variety of emotions and events that can happen when it’s warm and relaxed?
The new season of opportunity is always here and now. There’s always something more expansive to learn, another insight to perceive and contemplate, another dream to be dreamed.
Elevation education is awakening to the passion of ongoing living, loving, laughing, learning and lightening up.
The transformation begins here and now with every breath and heartbeat, every awareness of our presence and process, every thought, word and action.
In alchemy, the key ingredient for this ongoing transformation is reverence. The more attention and awareness we give to the sacredness of Life the more we belong to and become an integrating part of it.“
Rather than rejecting and denying portions of our own being, seeking some kind of illusory perfection, wholeness integrates the contraries.
Mystics and visionaries have engaged this spiritual depth of the interior universe for millennia and through it, slowly felt their way Home.
It’s been a revelation of waking up to the latent ‘power within’ and how our lives are now essential to create a new acceptance for the ‘other’ in us all.
Where’s the wholeness which embraces brokenness as an integral part of life? Where’s our compassion for the the poor, sick, hungry and least of our fellow sojourners?
I again began to listen to the whispers of my heart which led me into places I never imagined and taught me lessons I didn’t know I needed to learn.
