Nothing teaches us more about awakening and renewal than Spring. Mother Earth herself gives us the most remarkable lesson in recreating oneself. It’s a simple teaching of faith and perseverance through dark and difficult times. We learn the powerfulness of our roots, the true essence that sustains us. We bow to and honor both the dark and light. Each a necessary part of long term sustainability and new growth. Slowly we learn to discern what needs to be weeded. We begin to cultivate and believe in our own unique beauty. We return to the natural order of things. A few deep breaths of spring rain ambrosia and we begin to blossom again and break free from the things that bind our hearts and entangle our minds. Happy spring awakening to all. May you bloom where you are planted. May your practice be fruitful.
