All day long, you make decisions – some large, some small. Each one of them reflects the things that you feel are important. What is the basis for this or that decision? It’s something that may not be immediately apparent as you go about your day, dealing with events, people, circumstances.
When this time of year rolls around, it usually triggers a wistful feeling, a sense of completion and a sense of loss. The summer has clearly fled; autumn is in full expression, and we stand, watching leaves fall, wondering what winter will bring.
This last summer, here in Big Sur, California, we were transformed by fire. The Soberanes Fire, started by a careless camper with an illegal campfire, became the longest-burning fire in the history of Monterey County.
You know that elusive light that hovers over the wetlands in the twilight? It moves around and changes color, much as meteors do…
In the cave of the deep lies the spring of the heart. – Rumi
Nature shows us how the unseen comes forth to nourish the seen. All that we see, hear, or know, comes from the unknown and returns there after its form is completed. The limitless energy of the Universe gives life to what we perceive, mysteriously forming new experiences around us. These are the times that we know as our lives.
It’s your choice how you present yourself to the world. The way you show up is the way the world sees you – and this becomes the way you see yourself. This perception has everything to do with what you will create today and for the future.
How can you tell what’s important and what is not? All day and night you have choices to make about the signals that stream in, creating feelings and thoughts. They demand that you take accept, or reject, the ideas that they represent.
