I was trying to think of something brainy to say about Spring; maybe even find a good quote. Really? All I had to do is look outside and take in the beauty of the season and what it means. Fresh air, new starts, de-cluttering and spring cleaning, blossoms, new awakenings, turn of the wheel, baby lambs, the return of song birds, release. The wonders of Spring are endless. Oh, yes, and that beautiful scent that comes once a year. If we could only bottle it! Perhaps it's just one of those things that has to remain unsolved so that we can tap into the Universal Song and all it's mystery. Some things are best left alone. After all, would deep appreciation of Spring's wonder be the same if we could smell it in Autumn?
Last Spring, with renewed vigor, I promised myself that I would spend more time in the garden, stay longer into the evenings with the dimming light, absorb more of the seasonal essence. And like Spring, my hopes and dreams are renewed this year but with a noticeable softness, not with have-tos or musts. There is a time when after enough turns of the wheel that one becomes easy with life, accepting after many releases and surrenders, a knowing that all will come in its own time. Trust. For as sure that Spring will come once a year with her mantle of new life, a trust comes that all will be well, even it is not our schedule. It's a deepening of the soul.
Mama Nature knows what's best, especially when we don't interfere. She knows how to ignite the divine spark in seeds that lie dormant for years but needs a forest fire to bring life. She knows how to hide a new born fawn by camouflaging its coat. She knows that life always has a beginning and some kind of end. A turn of the wheel, a new season begins. Has your wheel turned? Have you started new projects, made new promises to yourself, felt the crisp air and filled your lungs with freshness, listened, truly listened to your heart's calling? Maybe it's time, this year, right now. Go ahead . . . take the leap!
Trust and give yourself permission to blossom.
With immense gratitude
