I LOVE SPRING

What is it about the opening of springtime that makes us want to blossom and bloom into our full creative manifestation of spirit? How do the corpuscular rays of sunshine reach so deeply into the soul that we have no choice but to push back with full creative force, so hard that we don’t even realize the full potential for creation of beauty?

With the illumination of the soul after the hibernation that must be undertaken during the darkest days, we begin to see the germination of the seeds that have been harbored through the long meditative winter. Little green buds of inspired ideas creep through the surface to erupt so brilliantly in the warmth of the soul of our home. Stretching boundlessly toward the glorious creative entity, the small bud begins to pick up some momentum after tasting a sip of it’s new found freedom. It takes on new shapes and forms, ever transforming to adapt to the new surroundings. As the bud begins to take on it’s destined geometry, it begins to grow faster, with more vigor, until it doesn’t even recognize itself as the seed that it once was. Being joined with it’s ultimate lover has allowed it to be itself in all it’s glory, growing and expand at rate that it never knew possible. With firm, strong roots in place, it feels safe to show it’s most vulnerable and beautiful side to the world. Soft, luscious petals open sensuously to the sun, showing it a beauty that it never thought possible. She shines in all her glory, teasing and taunting all who dare to look deep into her. We are changed by looking that deeply into something so magnificent, so simple, so glorious in all ways.

So, what can we take away from this glorious renewing of the seasons? Everything starts small, as a seed in it’s precious earthen womb. We all need a bit of inspiration from something that shines a bit brighter than we do at the moment. Patience and resilience lead to our ultimate beauty. Everything can be changed by that one small step.
