The seasons are beginning to change again. I can feel it in the air.
The leaves are just now changing to their different colors.
How smoothly do you transition between the seasons?
Because I was talking with my daughter, Abby yesterday about the fact she will not be experiencing as much of the weather changes, living in Florida as she did in NYC, it gave me the idea for this article.
So, due to this topic, it reminded me of one of my favorite Universal Laws. The Law of Rhythm.
The Law of Rhythm states that everything is like a pendulum.
Whenever something swings to the right, it must then swing to the left. Everything is involved with a dance………. A swaying back and forth. Everything is either growing or dying.
Therefore, there are cycles of economies. There are high periods and low periods. Everything has a rhythm or a pattern.
What seems to be random is very orderly within this Law.
This Law governs our economy, health, relationships, and spirituality. Let’s say that you’re at a peak potential with your health and fitness. If you realize you are at the peak, then you can foresee your health and fitness could drop some as you get older.
However, instead of viewing this “drop in health” as something being wrong with you, you now view it as a sign to rest your body and change your exercise to match where you are at.
Maybe change your nutrition as well.
Then by Law you must grow to a better and higher state of potential.
What we need to understand is, how we can use this in our favor.
And, to begin to understand what that rhythm is.
You have heard of people having a breakdown before having a breakthrough? That is also the Law of Rhythm.
This Law appears, with our sunrises and sunsets. Moon rise and moon set.
The tide goes in and the tide goes out.
Good times follow bad times.
In business, marketing follows a rhythm.
Sales have a rhythm to them as well.
Likewise, look at how technology has changed in just the last few years, much less look at where it was when each of us were growing up.
Relationships have a rhythm to them. Earning money has a rhythm.
During each of these seasons or cycles only certain things happen.
Everything vibrates and moves to certain rhythms. These rhythms establish seasons, cycles, stages of development and patterns.
Always pay attention to your feelings. Know that they are coming in cycles or in a rhythm.
When you understand this Law intentionally you will not let yourself go down so far that you have no hope, or you are living in despair.
Consequently, you have the knowledge that where you’re at, will not last forever.
Understand you are in a down cycle and recognize it. It will begin to change. When a person doesn’t recognize these times as a cycle, they can easily go into a downward spiral.
I teach about appreciation being a doorway to shift into positive feelings. Stopping often to appreciate things and people, shift your emotions to appreciation. Then joy and love will come along as well.
It’s the easiest way to keep yourself from going down into a spiral of negativity.
When winter comes here in the north, for months it appears that trees and plants are dead. What we don’t see is, they are preparing for the spring.
For the warmth, rain and sunshine to grow again, into the beautiful, colorful plants, trees and grass of spring and summer.
So too with the seasons of our lives. Yes, as you age, things change. You aren’t the same or can do all of the same things you could when you were younger. Only as you work with the changes, you can find other things that you didn’t have at your disposal when you were young.
Like what? Well, how about wisdom? I know I have lots more wisdom as my years go on. As I have chosen to learn from my “mistakes” and things that sometimes I wish I could have a “do over” with. None of us get a “do over” for anything.
We do however choose to do things differently the next time, right? That is if we look for the lessons in everything that we experience, even the painful things, and learn from them.
Have you found as you are getting older and the more time and experiences you’ve had here on earth, you are more thoughtful too?
You may not be in as much of a hurry and you may take things in stride. Finally, you appreciate more things more of the time, don’t you?
These are some things that come with having more time living life. What else have you learned? Have you become aware of this Law of Rhythm, maybe without really knowing about it or thinking of it?
Pay attention to your different seasons and rhythms and those of others around you. Leave me a comment about any rhythm’s you have noticed in your life.
