“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” Joseph Campbell,
This past week, the colours of spring have reminded me that we mark our lives by nature. When the spring rain comes with the subtle greens, we think of planting, even as we sense harvest time when the sun shines amber. Summer’s warmth conjures up picnics and sandy beaches. And those long, dark winter nights give us time for rest and reflection.
From a scientific perspective, without seasons, humanity would be living quite differently. Some suggest that humans would probably have never advanced beyond living in small settlements, subsisting on limited food. Every season has a purpose that supports our survival.
This Sunday evening, I am celebrating Spring, the season of new beginnings, of awakening, of planting. Join me on my walk in Nature.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 KVJ
