No Winter Lasts Forever

Dawn follows every night. Every ocean has a shore. Every storm plays itself out. There is no winter that lasts forever, and you can always begin again in a new spring. Do not let the snows weigh you down. Take the precautions you need against the fury of the storm and the dark of the night, but have faith that a new day will come. Plan for that as well. Keep going forward and know that you will have new reasons to keep going forward.

A Fruit Tree In Winter

Have you ever looked at a stand of fruit trees during the winter? I mean really looked. They often seem dead. Their leaves are gone, there is no fruit, everything is dark and barren. If you only saw the tree in that one moment, you might believe that it had no past and no future, that it had never provided and would never provide again. Come back and visit that same tree during the spring, though, and see how it has come back to life. See that it has new gifts to give and new life to live, then remember, you are no different from that tree, really. A moment is only a moment, and there will be other moments to come, just as there were other moments in the past. Don't let one bad moment rob you of all of the other possibilities.

If We Had No Winter

It is one of the oldest aphorisms in our common lexicon, but it is no less true for all of that: you can't really appreciate the good times if you don't get any bad times with which to compare them. Aside from the simple act of comparison, I believe that we would not continue to have good times if we didn't also have the bad. It is during the bad that we learn. It is from the hard times that we draw experience. It is not that we can't learn during the good, but that learning is more necessary and more driven during the bad times. Take the lessons you gain from the bad times and use them to safeguard the good.

In Seed Time

There is a time and a place for everything. The old gives way to the new, and all life changes and grows even as some that we can see goes back into the earth. All life is a cycle, and it cannot work properly without all elements of the cycle. Do not fight against the part of the cycle in which you stand but, instead, seek to learn its reason and purpose. Align yourself with the cycle, and grow in the way of life.

The Things You Have

To want more, to want to do more, to want to be more; these are all natural desires that often govern how we proceed through life. They are the reason we take steps to better ourselves and our place in the world, but they can also, if we are not careful, blind us to ourselves and our place in the world. Never get so caught up in where you are going that you forget where you are. Never worry so much about what you are trying to achieve that you forget what you already have. Be grateful for today, even as you are preparing for tomorrow.

For my birthday, coming up on November 30, I am asking for donations to support the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. I would appreciate any support you can provide, and please help spread the word. Thank you.

I will be on vacation next week (yes, it's that time of year again, when I have to start using time or losing it), so there will be no regular updates. Happy Thanksgiving, if you celebrate. Enjoy time with your loved ones, regardless of your holidays, and I'll see you in a week or so. Namaste.

When Things Go Wrong

When things go wrong, we tend to focus on that wrong to the exclusion of all else. The wrong becomes so much larger because of the additional life we are feeding into it and, soon, it might become all we can see regardless of where we look. Instead, to prevent this from happening, this would be the perfect time to take a step back and take stock of those things that are right. When you are not feeling grateful because things have gone wrong is the perfect time to take stock of those things that are right, to help reset your perspective.

Shown In Actions

When you are truly grateful, you can't help but show it. Words are a nice beginning, but they will never be enough to express the full meaning of what you feel. When you are truly grateful, you will need people to see it because you won't be able to contain the feeling. When you put that out in the world, you are putting out positive experiences that can't help but generate additional positive experiences. A grateful person is a joy to be around, and the actions of a grateful person will be fantastic building blocks for a better world.
