Do you know what I love most about Autumn?
The turning and falling of green into brilliant red, orange, and yellow remind us how beautiful the destruction process is. To destroy the surface down to the core. How beautiful it is for the tree to completely shed what its worked all year to build to make way for a total rebirth in Spring.
It’s dead leaves that give Autumn its magical colors. Winter then purifies the destruction of Autumn and clears the space for the green to make its first appearance again. Like the seasons, I think the true meaning of life is a destructive process. It’s not about collecting more wealth, knowledge, principles, wisdoms, insights without FIRST destroying everything we’ve held onto. I think the problem is that we already “know” and “have” too much. We need to make room. Nature holds all truth.
