“It’s autumn. A good time to #reflect. A good time to not ‘be busy getting somewhere’.
A time to look at what this year had taught you. And to contemplate what’s worth carrying with you and what to better leave behind.
It’s the time to drop some weight.
Take a moment to just enjoy the spectacle, watch the colourful sky, embrace the early sunset and the leaves on the ground.
Allow #lightness inbetween your branches, your thoughts, your ideas, your feelings, within your heart…Autumn 2019
Allow yourself to be on the ground together with the leaves.
Allow yourself to merge with the seasons.
Allow yourself to #recharge before a new phase arises.
Allow yourself to rest within every step, every move you make.
Allow yourself to be. Be present and listen to the wind….”
All year around the seasons are an inspiration for me.
Last November on a weekend trip to Budweis I contemplated on the falling leaves ‘merging with the ground’.
And so did I. I merged with the ground.
Yesterday morning in the park I had a moment of lightness. Where was it coming from? This rush of energy?
It was a freezing cold morning. I was walking with a warm coffee in one hand and my boyfriend in the other. The cold breeze on this late November morning refreshed my face.
I looked up to the sky where I could see some golden leaves dancing with the wind in front of my favorite church tower – in the part of Munich I currently live in.
(As most of you know by now I am a nomad from the heart and so far nothing could possibly stop me.)
I looked around.
“There is so much space.,” I said out loud. My boyfriend agreed without knowing specifically what I was talking about.
I was walking this path dozens of times in the last weeks on the way to the park.
But only now I could see this grassland next to the little pathway. It is kind of a meadow – just behind huge oak and beech trees.
I took the deepest possible breath through my mouth right down into my stomach.
Naturally my entire abdominal wall expanded and relaxed.
I felt ease.
I looked directly into the sun. She was blinding me tenderly.
I felt a huge sense of clarity.
Only a couple of days earlier I asked myself how I would possibly manage this dark season in Germany? The last years I had spent partly in Italy or India during the winter.
The last weeks I admired the colourful leaves – but kind of a sadness had been arising. A kind of grief.
But today I remembered…
Autumn is a time of immense transformation.
Autumn is a time of release.
Old energies are being released…
The trees drop their leaves and they make space for new shoots.
The harvest for this year is over.
Everything that doesn’t belong here anymore is being recycled.
The ground for the new is being tilled.
The restoration takes place in silence.
There is this enegy of renewal in every season.
We better roll with it and rest, restore and recover.
What does this have to do with jelly fishes?
Well, this post was intended to be about jelly fishes, but I didn’t quite ‘get there’…
So, I guess that’s material for a different story.
But did you know that some jelly fishes are immortal? 😀
