The Significance of Spring

posted by Guy Finley

Question: What is the significance of the seasons in relation to our own lives?

Answer: Each season represents an individual “story” — as well as doing its individual part in the telling of a far greater story whose principle character is hidden in the never-ending cycle of these seasons themselves. Each year of our physical life on earth, we see the arrival of gentle spring rains that stir seeds into new growth, the warmth of summer that hastens fruition, biting fall winds that release what must yield, and the chill of winter days whose stillness seems empty of life. These same seasons unfold in us much in the same way, meaning that inwardly, emotionally, we experience the entire gamut of these invisible forces on a daily basis. Accordingly, we go through what these “seasons” bring about within us, each according to his or her understanding of what these movements mean, and how they can be best used to achieve our intention.

Question: What is the message in any particular season – spring, for example?

Answer: Spring is as spring does; it makes its appointed round in the time of (the star system) Aquarius, the water bearer — bringing with it what the late summer seeds need to start the process of awakening from their winter slumber. The latent forces in these seeds become active, and new forms of life spring forth because the waters they need to thrive and survive are present. This seasonal surge moves into and through us in much the same way. We feel not only the need to make a fresh start, but we’re also provided the energies needed to do so. The stirring we feel to break out of the “earth” of our old patterns, to reach higher, comes to us from on high; thus realized, we are empowered to succeed by a Life that may encounter obstacles, but that cannot be stopped.

The Interior Action that Builds Character
The character of goodness, of compassion and kindness that we would like to reflect and express before our friends (and enemies), requires that we place “its” life before our own. And yet, when we agree to this interior action of self-sacrifice, not only is our life returned to us, but we find t

Enter a World Where Goodness is Its Own Reward
Once we see it's impossible to please ourselves at the expense of the pain of someone else, we are released from the cycle of seeking a false comfort whose conflict compromises "winners" and "losers" alike. Only then are we free to enter a new world – above the opposites -- where goodness is its o

Step Into the Unknown
