In human life we are born, grow, blossom and pass and hopefully we do it with the fulfillment and graceful intention of our spiritual purpose.
In nature, plants are born, albeit emerge, from a hibernation. They grow, blossom and seemingly pass leaving their gifts of beauty and sustenance.
In general, we humans have decades before our passage. So does the natural flora, but they give the illusion of passage each fall and return in the spring so that we can remember that life never ends. We are eternal.
Would you like proof?
Take an early morning walk as the sun begins to rise.
Listen to your heart in the silence of your room.
Hear a child laugh and know that God is not discouraged with humanity.
Let go of a personal fear and begin to laugh.
In a mirror, stare into the center of your eye and ask, “Who am I?” and then listen to the answer.
