We are all just one step away from having nothing, we can in an instant moment lose everything. Yet we spend our time wanting more and judging those we think we have more than.
We take so much for granted and we do not appreciate what we have. Always looking for more and more.
A life that is centred around appreciation of what we have and being truly grateful for it allows us to be able to deal with the unexpected. We can be at peace, no longer seeking our happiness through more or feeling better than others, which always leads to suffering.
Life goes up and down in a cycle and nothing lasts, it is all temporary.
Enjoy what you have right now and see anything else as a bonus and that will lead to lasting joy, no matter what the cycle of life brings.
Tuesday was the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.
‘So what’ you might say. It’s just another day, another season.
As humans, we have become very disconnected with nature. We spend precious little of our focus on it.
Yet, nature can teach us so much. The beautiful stillness of nature can teach us silence, consciousness and being aware. The cycles of nature, like the seasons, show us that things are born, they grow, mature and die.
This is the cycle that teaches us everything is temporary. Yet, it renews too.
When we spend time in nature, our natural essence is awakened and if we allow it, it will flourish and grow.
Autumn is a new adventure, a change, where the leaves turn and the life withers.
Autumn is an amazing time of change and it can be for ourselves too. Each moment unfolds with fresh opportunity.
Enjoy the new season, remember the cycle of life, it happens to everything.
