Early autumn is like a Full moon. It is the time when things come to a ripe conclusion or they begin to fall away. It is the time for harvesting, clearing and evaluation. I love the energy of ‘stripping’ away and just like trees begin to lose their foliage I enjoy the feeling of bare freshness of a completed cycle.
I have come to like this naked ’emptiness’, which also seems to bring a distinct clarity of mind and vision. It feels similar to a state of fasting when all senses sharpen and eyes seem to see further. Lies get exposed, ugliness tastes bitter and apparent. At this time I want to exhale with all my might and move towards peace with no attachments to outcomes, to a space of flow and allowing. I feel like clearing spaces and tidying things away to welcome even more bareness to come with the air getting colder and skies darker. It feels cosy and comforting to me this chilly openness and freshness of colder air.
