Reflection on Summer-Autumnal Equinox
"Autumn's pleasures and rituals revolve around the gathering of abundance in preparation for the winter to come...The same stirring that inspires animals to burrow deep into the earth compels us to celebrate the rich bounty we instinctively know will not appear again until springtime...
Apearances deceive in autumn. The transformations undergone by living beings seem much more like endings than the transitions they really are. Dormancy, not death, is the hallmark of fall...but remember to rejoice in the beauty of nature where every finale serves as an overture for a new beginning." ~Daily Om
