As the seasons change, leaves fall & Autumn draws in, it’s a time for us to look at how we can stay rooted, connected to nature & our hearts. Observe the leaves as they fall, take time to notice the beautiful colours & shapes, feel the crisp air as you take deeper inhales & slow exhales, sit for a while.
As you do so observe the mind, is it in the past or future, or maybe the present moment, remembering just as the seasons change, everything in life is constantly moving, flowing… you never know what is around the corner but what ever it is you need to be ready, with an open heart & mind, steady, strong & grounded. So as the new moon arrives “let what comes, come, let what goes, go”. Resist grasping for things you are looking for, they will flow when the moment is right, just as the leaves fall from the trees.
Leave the familiar for a while
Let your senses stretch out
Like a welcome season
Onto meadows shores and hills
Change rooms in your mind for a day
All the hemispheres in existence
Lie beside the equator of your heart
In your thousand other forms
As you mount the hidden tide
Into the great circle of the heart.
