Make Room for a New Order of Joy and Trust
The fall season, so full of autumn colors, tells the passage of one order of life surrendering itself so that another may take its place. This makes it a natural time for us to let go of any old resentment — to forgive those who may have hurt us — so that our heart, willingly emptied of the pain of the past has room within it for the arrival of a new order of joy and trust.
Learning to let go in this way honors life, because it is true to what Life needs in order to succeed within us and through us.
Fall is nature’s preparation for regeneration, and we too should use this time to release anything left hanging over — from the heartache of an unresolved relationship, to that argument with someone that still stings us each time we relive it. That past pain should be deliberately dropped now, shed like dried-out leaves to blow away in the winds of time.
