The "autumn" season has always intrigued me. The month of October in some countries of the world is marked by a beautiful change of scenery, of the weather, with Mother Nature moving towards cold harsh winter months. Here, in India, we hardly experience this season.
I think, its a fascinating change, to shed your old skin, be bare for a while & later come up again rejuvenated. Some animals & reptiles do that too. Hibernating through the winter months.
Alas, if only humans could do that. Or maybe we can. Once a year, to let go of the seemingly dead things in our life- meaningless relationships, unnecessary junk around the house, of the negative feelings & just be. Lie low for a month. Give your body time to recuperate, to dwell in the bliss of nothingness. It need not be a month. A week maybe.
Maybe, different spans of time for different people. But worth a try, I guess. It definitely isn't going to be easy. To bare your soul in the harsh times, to take aside the mask, & feel vulnerable. But, isn't that how Mother Nature works? Show your true colors, without fear, or guilt. Cause those colors might be the gleam of gold from the sparkle of your inner soul.
