This time of year has always been such a potent and powerful time for me. In this change of season, I always experience a big change in my life. Something ends. Then there is a new beginning, catapulting me forward. I used to be afraid of this change or death. I was afraid to let go of what was. I've now learned how to soften my grip and trust in letting go. Letting the old compost through winter, knowing this cycle of birth, death, rebirth will continue.
Autumn. A time to savour the fruits of action from summer. A time to begin to retreat as the days shorten. A time for me to get back to my daily practice. To move inwards a little more. This time of transition allows me to trust in what is, what was and what's next.
