Letting go, letting go…
Many, many years ago, just about this time of year, I noticed the lilac bush that grew outside my kitchen window. The leaves were dying and dropping off while at the same time I could see that the buds for new spring growth had already formed even before all of the dead leaves were released.
I think that is a perfect description of what is happening in the world around us and within each of us right now. You can choose to focus on the dead, dying leaves as they lay on the ground decomposing and the drama and trauma of their being swirled around in the wind and swept away.
Or you can look more closely, examining the the whole bush discovering the new buds that are already quietly growing to become the plant’s (or planet’s) next, more expanded expression of itSelf and appreciate that the dying leaves that have now completed their journey and must be released to make way for the new growth cycle to emerge.
I worked with Carolyn Conger thirty-five years ago and she shared a very important concept with us: Chaos is a very high state. Chaos allows something absolutely new to be born, rather than something evolving into an updated version of its old form.
It is so important for each of us to to deliberately, consciously choose where we place our focus and attention right now and support each other in surrendering to the evolutionary process at hand. Wonderful things are happening all around us and exciting new possibilities for ways of doing things are emerging everywhere!
Blessings to every one of you during these chaotic times. I hold you in my heart.
