Awake my dear. Be kind to your sleeping heart. Take it out into the vast fields of light and let it breathe.
It’s not officially autumn yet, but it sure seems like autumn as I look at my weather app, which displays a chilly 40 degrees!
I love autumn because it is the last burst of color and sunshine before dark days and cocoon-like spaces. This season invites us to let go of old and irrelevant thoughts, feelings, goals, and go inward and re-think one’s life—where one is now and where one wants to go.
We find ourselves simultaneously letting go of old ways, and at the same time awakening the sleeping heart and inviting the heart and mind into the fields of internal light—insight, investigation, curiosity and love.
As we head into shorter and colder days, I hope that we can find the time to explore these inner realms of light and warmth and breath.
