The changing seasons are happening right now in nature. If you live in an area where you get to enjoy the splendor and beauty of fall, you’re loving the gorgeous color show we get to see!
I was out with Hale in our yard today, getting the leaves cleaned up and also using them as protection for some of our plants and small trees. We’re leaving for my Kauai Spiritual Retreat in a couple days, and today was the perfect weather day to get this done!
As you read this blog, if you receive this in your email, it will actually be during my third day of my retreat!
As I’m preparing to teach 10 of the Universal Laws at this retreat, one of them stands out in relation to the changing seasons in nature and in our lives. It’s the Universal Law of Rhythm.
This Law is about the fact that there are always different cycles to everything in life.
Relationships, business, nature and your moods, all experience times when they are growing, standing still, taking a break, or dying.
This Law reminds us that everything is like a pendulum. When it swings to the right, it must swing to the left. Everything is involved with a dance, a swaying back and forth. The tide goes in and out.
You’ve heard people say that lots of times before a breakthrough, people experience a breakdown?
All the Law of Rhythm. The changing seasons.
The key is to become aware of this, so when things are not going in your life like you want them to go, you also know that it will not last too long. It will change. With this knowing, you won’t get so far down in the dumps that you are in a downward spiral that is harder to come out of. Make sense?
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, warmth, rain and warm 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 even 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 get 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’re getting older and the more time and experiences you’ve had here on earth, you are more thoughtful too? Yes, I know I am and so are many others I’ve talked with about this topic.
You may not be in as much of a hurry. You may find you take things in stride. 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?
Leave me a comment about what you have taken away from this blog and also what you have learned in life about your changing seasons!
Love and blessings to you,
