If there is anything that the seasons teach us, it is about impermanence. To be resilient in the face of constant change. To cherish the moment for its beauty and luster, for it may not come again. To show gratitude in that moment for it may never arise again. To recognize that the universal law of change impresses upon us the need for patience and love.
Tethering ourselves not to the need for consistency, but to the inevitability of transformation. Be it in forms of evolution, degradation, birth, death, growth or decay, a change will inevitably occur and we must stand ready at the gates of change with a smile. Honoring what we saw of the moment and reflecting on what we knew, but then welcoming what comes in its stead.
New moments request of us something different than the last one. We must listen to the moment, to the “season," and prepare to shape our response to its stimuli. Not be stuck in our reflections on past moments, but embracing the current one, the current season, and giving it space to exist. Acknowledging its existence for what it is. Dealing with what is now in front of us, understanding that it will not exist in this form again.
Cherish the beauty of the moment. Honor the beauty of the season in front of you.
