The coming of spring!

 Spring is a time that always reminds me of my quit. There’s so much in common with the spring and a quit. When spring comes, the landscape completely changes. The tearing down of things in the winter is the beginning of new life the following spring.


And so, spring reminds me of a quit because it’s a new beginning. A new cycle in the life of the planet. Sure, there are thunderclouds but there’s also the rainbow deep inside of that cloud, if we choose to see it. There’s a warmth that just permeates everything, thawing us from the cold winter.


In a quit, we have to kind of tear down the world as we know it in order to rebuild for the new and renewed life that we’re trying to create. We have to be willing to take the time to create this new world through our resolve.


In the end, we’re creating a kind of harmony within ourselves that will eventually carry us through to the freedom that we long for so much. Still, there’s always the thunderstorm on the horizon, keeping us wondering what’s on the other side.


At times we have days where we’re really in the midst of that mighty thunderstorm, with it seemingly crashing all around us and with the wind that pummels us, trying to get us to change course. This is the time to look for the rainbow, though it may be hard to see. Even if we can’t see it, we have to know that it’s there in order to get through to the other side.


And eventually, we really can see the light through the clouds. The kalidiscope of colors that help us to understand that very soon, things will be calmer. That very soon, we’ll be on the other side of the thundercloud. That very soon, we’ll walk into that new world that we worked so hard to create. The changed world. The one that is so bright and peaceful.


Stay on the path my friends. Never let the thundercloud get you. Rather, try to see what’s on the other side, where the freedom lies. No matter how strong the thundercloud, there is another side of it. I can’t wait to see you there!!
