on the Path
"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it...unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense." --Buddha
For some people, Autumn can be a melancholy season. Along with colorful leaves and welcome harvests, comes an awareness that the darker, colder days of Winter loom ahead. The additional stress of these uncertain times may heighten feelings of sadness and grief.
And that’s okay. It is appropriate to mourn what is passing, to acknowledge where we've been. However, we can honor and appreciate the past without clinging to it. Seasons, Life, even our individual lives are cycles within cycles and those energies are dynamic and evolving. Take time to mourn and honor what is passing, but then release it to welcome what comes next. Make space in your life for the new season and all its gifts. May you receive them in abundance.
