I have often met the month of September with a subtext of melancholy; perhaps childhood memories of summer ending and going back to school. Perhaps itís the Virgo aura:
ďThe Virginís Mysteries culminate in a purified and honorable relationship between life and death. As such, this season can be emotionally and spiritually challenging for those who shy away from this necessity.Ē ~ Aeolian Heart
This September seems spectacularly intent on upheavals, changes and endings. The summer wound down for me in a pall of smoke and ash; I have experienced a death in my extended family and, once again, I will be moving at the end of the month. I have also seen these challenges reflected in almost every one of my closest friends and family. When it feels like youíre beset with chaos coming from many directions, what gives you the ability to find balance, peace and happiness?
Have you noticed how natureís fury levels the playing field? The NOW of it all keeps the focus on life, both human and animal, and not what is the skin color, creed or species. It pulls us together and inspires us to appreciate the value of all life. This can be a stability we find in chaos and we see it expressed in uncounted acts of heroism and the power of simple kindness.
I find peace and happiness in my world daily by focusing my lens on the many small kindnesses given and received that may go unacknowledged, but not unnoticed. Here is the Symbala offering inspired by this love and valuing of all life. Itís powerful; itís simple and itís full of love, enjoy!
