Happy Day To You,
As I stood in the garden this morning offering gratitude for the day, I received a message from the trees and wanted to share.The trees shifting from green to bright orange and flame red, is a reminder that aging is not about the hard work of forcing change so we can be a beacon for others…
It’s about letting go of the physical work, and in that release, our true nature is revealed- festive colors that bring joy, inspiration, and delight to all.
On this Autumnal Equinox, please remember that the trees are not dying.
The shift that occurs in their leaves is simply a matter of them letting go of the green chlorophyll which masks the other colors.
Those glorious colors have been there all along.
They are letting go of the chlorophyll because they don’t need to make food for themselves.
They are letting go of the work.
They are surrendering.
In that surrender, what was once hidden, is now revealed.
Beautiful and perfect.
What true and perfect thing will be revealed when you stop forcing and simply surrender?
