With flowers in bloom everywhere in the Northern Hemisphere, rebirth and adventure are in the air. Spring allows us to experience the myriad beauty of nature by reveling in the rebirth of flowers, plants and trees.
Spring symbolizes new beginnings and Autumn symbolizes endings – both are integral to LIFE and CREATION.
It’s easy to love birth. It is harder to love death.
Yet, in order to self reflect, you must always be in a state of transformation. In other words, to engage in balanced relationships, your carefully constructed self image must be constantly released in order to make room for your Soul.
The death of one makes way for the re-flowering of the other.
Spring brings to life many beautiful flowering fruit trees. When these flowers die, you can either be sad or you can see the flower as a natural part of the cycle for the fruit-bearing tree. The blossoming and disappearance of a flower is not a sad occasion at all. It is a natural change that must occur when the tree is ready to bear fruit.
The symbol of a flowering fruit tree is the symbol of your changing life.
The flowers represent your experiences that transform from day-to-day, month-to-month and year-to-year. The fruits are the insights you gain from engaging in relationship with the world.
The tree is YOU.
You, the tree, have your roots deeply grounded in Divine Creation. Your nourishment is connected to your true origin.
This is how all your experiences (flowers) and your discoveries (fruits) return to their origin. Your thoughts, words and feelings are, in essence, composted into divine soil, which transforms itself and creates more life.
Nothing is permanent. Everything is always in motion.
So your fear of death is stopping you from feeling what is perfectly natural. Even worse, it is causing you to attract unnecessary pain. Accept that life is eternal, and you will release your attachments to the fruits and the flowers – and to your physical body. And then, all of a sudden, Freedom informs everything you say and do.
Freedom – the keyword for 2012 – can only activate within you when you are fearless.
What do you fear most of all? Most people would say, death.
But why? Death is natural. Life and death are actually interchangeable. You can’t have one without the other.
If you fear death because you leave your body, just know – You are NOT your body. Your body is a temporary piece of clothing in order for your eternal Soul to experience the wonders of Earth in the human form. But YOU don’t die when you leave your body.
You change form. You trans-form.
See if you can learn to love death as you love life. Stop resisting change. This whole year is about change. You can now release old patterns of behavior and replace them with peace and tranquility much more easily than ever before.
Cherish each moment. See this moment as exquisite and extraordinary.
Make your life special again. Feel joy — otherwise living is plain ordinary.
Shine your Light. You will illuminate darkness for yourself and others and never again second-guess Who You Are.
Love and Blessings,
P.S. Only three slots are left this year for my exclusive Day of Elevation – take your life from ordinary to extraordinary!
