“Instructions for living a life.
Tell about it.”
~ Mary Oliver
Listen to the children, constant in their pure surprise. Children delight in change, unless they've been deeply wounded.
Listen to your child's heart. Are you fearing change? Can you open the field to allow in more of Life's gifts, those reminders which nature and young spirits bring that renewal CAN be ours... And will?
The young girl in the picture is holding a basket, some unknown treasure. Life's like this, when our perception opens
Zen mind is beginner's mind. We lose something, then fall into fear of loss. Do we grieve? Yes. Go then into winter's heart, and listen deeply.
Give this your time, love and attention, honor all the feelings and the fears. And trust in the hidden promise of winter. Spring is in there, already seeded. More than possible, this is true.
Return to simplicity: is something blocking you that you do not need? Let it go. Freedom is our gift. Release. Underneath, something waits to help rekindle your delight. And then, begin again.
The art of living asks us continually reinvent ourselves. Life forces our hand and brings us to ourselves, stripped bare of incongruities, the unnecessary bits, and sometimes, even cuts to the very core... yet we've survived.
Like winter, stripped clean, we send roots deep to find new life. And so it is. Begin again. What seeds of delight are here for you? Simple things. A bird, rose hips in the snow, berries turning red in winter.
