Be as a Rose
Move easily through the seasons of your life. Be as a rose.
Enjoy those times when you are in the bud, when things are new and the spring seems as if it will last forever. Enjoy the cycles of spring within your life, within each year, within each day, within each moment.
And when life moves into the summer, when you are enjoying the open blooming shining forth, your perfume wafting across the garden, your beauty fully expressed, enjoy this as well. Enjoy this period in your physical life and this period in your mental and spiritual lives as well. And see also, like the spring, how different enterprises you undertake move from spring to summer.
And when it is fall, enjoy those last long days as they slide down toward winter and know that this is a beautiful time as well, a time for gratitude and preparation, a time of transition as well as a beauty of another sort, where the blooming is slower and less full, but yet it is still there.
And when winter comes, when one thing is ending and a cycle is over, be as the rose. Return your energies and your focus to your roots. Know that you can weather the storm and the transition, if you will but return to your center, your roots. If it is not time to bloom now, it will yet be time again, when the spring returns.
As a life ends, an enterprise completes, a love affair or marriage is over, let yourself be dormant for a time, pulling in your strength from your roots. But then know that the sun will shine, the snow will melt, and life will spring forth in newness. A new rose, a new life, a new beginning, a new spring is always there.
Nothing ends. Nothing is lost. Life flows and continues always.
Here is a little prayer for today:
Today, I am as the rose. I move gracefully through the seasons of my life.
I open to spring when it is here and revel in the bright sunshine of newness. I open to summer when it is here and enjoy the full blooming of my love, my talents, my beauty.
I open to fall with gratitude and embrace each moment of the cooling day. And in the winter, I return to my roots, safe, secure and full of faith.
I embrace all of life, in all her seasons, with grace and gratitude. I am a part of the never-ending flow. I am.
