Settling Into Change

Hello October, I’m so excited to see you again….

“Pale amber sunlight falls across
The reddening October trees,
That hardly sway before a breeze
As soft as summer: summer’s loss
Seems little, dear! on days like these.

Let misty autumn be our part!
The twilight of the year is sweet:
Where shadow and the darkness meet…
A little while and night shall come,
A little while, then, let us dream.”
~ Ernest Dowson, Autumnal

It’s no secret that Fall is my favorite season, to me it feels like a kind of New Year. A shift that allows change big and small; that brings new energy after the summer’s heat. This seasonal energy is deep and profound, and every year invites a different understanding of myself as I dig deeper and deeper into the shadows.

“I think of the trees and how simply they let go… learning to lose in order to recover.” ~ May Sarton

We Move In Circles And In Cycles

By Jenn Grosso

As The Phoenix Falls {A Poem}
By Jenn Lui

You say you’ve been transformed
and that you’ve found your way
but how different do we really become.

One step forward sometimes ten steps back
and we find ourselves at the beginning again
Alchemy’s many disguises.

Walls are closing in while you react
Keep burning through the noose
Just keep burning through the noose.

Given the chance to rise above
to transmute fear and pain
trapped and stifled by ego’s demands

We move in circles and in cycles
we never really stay the same
yet never stray far away from our true nature.

Keep burning through the noose
to rise again and fall once more
to rise again.

Always Beginning Again

Headstand Musings - Day 338 of 365 Picture A Day

Headstand Musings – Day 338 of 365 Picture A Day

Change your perspective, flip it upside down. During my morning meditation, I took this quite literally. The destination isn’t a place but a new way of seeing things.

Pour yourself like a fountain.
Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking
Finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Nothing ever really ends, only begins again.
