The Power of The Equinox: Release and Return

posted by Guy Finley

The autumnal equinox marks the beginning of nature’s quiet retreat, a return journey back into the great “storehouse of life” wherein she will rest for awhile before becoming active once again.

We see this same dynamic principle of outflow and inflow over and over again, operating on stages as small as quantum particles, all the way to the cosmic seasons of the sun itself. Think of it: we human beings breathe in and out, moment by moment receiving and then releasing vital air. Each day the ocean tides rise and fall, even as the moon moves through its monthly cycle of waxing and waning.

But here is the all-important key: These vital forces . . . that oversee and enforce life’s ceaseless expansion and contraction, that ensure its fullness becomes emptiness in order to fill it again . . . they have no conflict with one other. Far from it: they complement each other by secretly serving to complete one another. And this knowledge can be our power because – with such wisdom in hand – we can let go knowing that whatever we will release will be returned to us in a whole new form.

The Music of the Mind
The music of the mind -- its harmony, or not, is expressed by the order of its thoughts through which it is instrumented. Confusion is dissonance; clarity is flow.
