Love Has Her Seasons

posted by Guy Finley

If trees move through seasons — and their loveliness only changes to reveal itself in new forms — then why not consider that Love has Her seasons too? And is any season more beau­tiful than another, or is it just that we tend to forget those very special elements each has to offer in its own time and on its terms?

Is spring greater than winter? Summer more important than fall? Don’t they really need one another in order to be all that they are?

The Secret Place of All Fresh Starts

posted by Guy Finley

The fear we feel that we can’t succeed with starting life all over again is because our old nature wants us to believe that the path to a New Self requires we retrace our steps and fight our way back to an unsoiled starting place in life. But here’s the truth: There is no pathway, past or future, that leads to Real Self-Newness. The secret place of all fresh starts in life unfolds right from where we are in each moment that we will dare to leave who we have been behind us. Start Now!

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.

Don't Be Tricked by Negativity
All forms of negativity may only dwell in us as long as they trick us into granting them permission to live there. Our task isn’t to overpower, or otherwise deny these sufferings, but to bring such light to bear upon them inwardly that, by our own clarity, their insanity must flee.
