Autumn leaves and trust
Updated: Jun 6, 2019
As I was walking my dog this morning, being mesmerised by the beauty of nature around me this time of year I was thinking of trust.
Autumn brings to our attention the cycle of life, ending and beginnings. However today the autumn leaves brought to my attention a different aspect that left me feeling warm inside and very grateful.
Seeing these beautiful colourful leaves reminded me that I am not alone. That I am supported along the way, that there is a plan.
I was thinking of the wisdom of nature. The wisdom that causes the leaves to dry and fall so that plants, animals and humans can get plenty of winter sun which is necessary for our survival and well being. The same wisdom that grows fresh new leaves to protect us from the scorching summer sun.
This wisdom is with us, protecting us and supporting us gently, without words but with beautiful presence. All we need to do is look outside and feel it inside.
Most importantly, we need to trust that we are not alone, that there is a plan and that we are supported and protected.
