All this seasonal “spring action” of crazy pastel fluorescent colored baby buds decorating bare grey branches like jewels and dancing warm wind and light sun soaked “smiley face” skies has me hanging outdoors for fear of missing out on an instant of natures “feel good” sensations. Even though it’s cyclic and will happen again in 12 months it always feels to me that every instant is too stimulating and precious to miss. And that is how I feel about the specific place I am standing at on my life’s path at this moment in time. Lately I am so focused with an overwhelming feeling of urgency concerning my life and the road I am on and the intersections I have come to that I only have time to deal with the moment I am in…at that moment! I deal with each moment full force…with all I’ve got…get it right…feel good about it…then let it go. It’s working for me. I have to make priority lists of things that need to get done in order for the flow not to get jammed up. I just accomplish one thing after another. There is a constant adjustment to the order of the list because new elements are always entering that are relevant to my progress and can’t be ignored or postponed….but I am finding that if I’m not judgmental or abnormally emotionally connected to these elements, it’s easy to keep it true, real, balanced and on track.
Leaves vanish from a tree…one by one… until there are none left, allowing the next cycle to begin. The tree lies silent enduring the elements by using all of it’s resources to stand tall but flexible enough to sway in the wind or bend with the weight of the snow and ice. It doesn’t feel the pleasure of the wind lifting it’s leaves into song and dance until a new cycle begins….all lives to begin, and end, to begin again.
