Life is a balance of holding on and letting go. Rumi
The fall equinox represents a time where night equals day. It is the changing of the seasons where the bounty of the summer is harvested in preparation for the winter months. We begin to move indoors for contemplation and rest. Mother earth prepares to slumber.
In the fall the leaves turn and drop to the ground to become mulch. We too learn to let go for Balance is not something you find, it is something you create. Jana Kingsford Only in doing so can we make space for new growth. Whether that be in friendships, family, career, or interests.
Unlike mother nature we control balance through rational thought rather than the movement of the spheres. Since everything is a reflection of our minds, everything can be changed by our minds. Buddha . So take this time to reflect on your life journey thus far, to acknowledge your accomplishments, and identify that which you may like to change moving forward. Balance leads to peace. When you realise nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you. Lao Tzu
