Meditations: “In this time of anticipated spring”
In this time of anticipated spring let us allow ourselves to extend the anticipation—to value the time of budding before blooming, of seeding before sprouting.
This is a time of revelation: the revealing of that which is eternal, which we see every year, but still need to be reminded to see it in a new way.
There is also the revelation of that which is new. Every spring we encounter something never before seen. It is that very newness which embodies hope and potential for the wholeness which is yet to be.
Let us allow spring to unfold slowly that we may appreciate the true mystery of rebirth and renewal.
