The autumn equinox arrives on September 23rd and I’m ready to let go of some things. How about you?
That’s what autumn is about: letting go. We can reflect upon all that blossomed in our lives and how we’ve grown over the summer.
Autumn says: It’s time to take note of what we are gathering in. And to determine what we can let go of.
Mindfulness helps us be aware of all that is right about our lives and to count our blessings. At the same time we can let go of what doesn’t serve us anymore. This may be a behavior, belief, or way of thinking. Trust enables us to let go like the leaves that fall from the trees with the knowing there will one day be new buds again.
Here are some questions you can explore:
• What’s your harvest?
• What are you grateful for?
• What can you let go of?
• What can you remove from your ‘backpack’ to lighten the load?
Autumn is the time to let go and trust that some blessing is on its way even though we can’t see it.
