Encouragement from the Cycle of the Seasons

posted by Guy Finley

Question: Some days when our hearts feel like they’re living in winter, what encouragement can understanding the cycle of the seasons offer?

Answer: “To every thing, there is a season,” so says Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament. But we can see that each season holds within it — as does cold winter earth hold summer seeds — the season that follows it and that secretly serves to fulfill its purpose. This means that right within winter, all the potency of spring awaits; within spring, all the fullness of summer awaits; so forth, and so on it goes. The “winter heart” — the heart stripped of its happiness because of having lost something or someone it loved – is only as “forsaken” as is our mistaken belief that the momentary disappearance of what we love means that love no longer exists. The changing seasons show us that while all forms must come and go, the secret Life behind them, and the act of Love by which they are created, lives on forever.


A Deeper Understanding of Winter and Spring

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

Answer: Spring is as spring does; it makes its appointed round heralded by (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. In a somewhat similar fashion, this seasonal surge moves into and through us. 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 Greater Story Behind the Seasons

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 within 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” have wrought within us, each according to our understanding of what these movements mean, and how they can be best used to achieve our intention.
