As Spring approaches, I can’t help but think of the cycle of Life. The cycle of our Consciousness, our mind, is reflected in the four seasons. And so it goes, as winter, the dormant or reflective time, has passed.
Winter represents a resting period in mind, shown forth in Nature. Rejuvenation, transformation, rebirth, getting ready for the abundant explosion of more Life. A new awakening is in the air.
Followed by Spring, the infancy state of Consciousness with its seeds sprouting eagerly, and curiously peaking out of Mother Earth’s fertile ground. Always pushing upwards towards the light - just like our Souls want to push upwards towards God’s Glory. The gentle warmth of Spring embalms our Spirit and gives renewed hope to a new day.
Ahhh, Summer! In full glory we embrace the life sustaining light and warmth of the sun. Youth with its unlimited strength and fearlessness! It is the time to reason and to make sound choices, the time to pave our paths. Enjoyment of the moment so desperately yearned for.
The cycle comes to an end with Autumn. Autumn represents the maturity of the mind, fruit at its best! At last we have come to an understanding of our true purpose in Life. We have reached yet another stage in our unfolding process.
And so we can rest once again!
