The autumn season is a time to reap the harvest in preparation for the colder months ahead.
The natural contractive force during this season impacts human behavior. There is an underlying desire to serve all life forms unconditionally as higher self awakens. It is the inward momentum that calls us to take time away from distractions and tap into inner resources.
What Can We Learn:
There are several lessons Mother Earth puts forth during this time of year. Love and Respect is a big one. Think about it, the earth has respect for all who live upon her. There is no part of her that is greater than the other. All is one and perfect.
Gaining Wisdom and having Courage are also lessons to behold. The greatest sages known to man walked upon the earth. In their very footsteps lies the wisdom for us all. The earth doesn't falter when shaken. Every day She provides without compromise or bias. We too must work through the difficult times and defend what is right, what we believe in, and be a part of this world.
Seeking the Truth is yet another lesson the earth presents. The earth is always true to itself. It does not seek to destroy. If we are true to self first, then it will be easy to be true to others.
