To experience the magic of the death season is to let go or surrender to all that may be dying within us, our relationships and the collective at large. This isn't just about saying goodbye to the physical/emotional entanglements from the past, but also the parts of ourselves which required said relationships as mirrors or guides toward growth. Now that we have seen what was needed, we can move on toward the next phase of development. This is a natural process and one which occurs in waves. This is a time to accept and honor these cycles. 

There is no race to the finish line but IF we are ready to approach forgiveness, specifically in relationship to love and love lost, we can honor our wounds by taking our experience of love back into ourselves. Releasing blame strengthens our natural buoyancy to love and feelings of love for life. We each have a uniquely personal relationship and right to our exact experience and can seek to understand how this experience is perfectly meant for our growth, as divined by God. Seeking to see self in other presents opportunity for acceptance of our experience to dissolve internal suffering. However, this energetic understanding of  universal laws in no way dismisses the experience of oppression or abuse. All suffering and pain is valuable and valid and all places on the path are held in divinity.

For our own path to inner peace, we can seek to understand that when we wish someone harm, we wish ourselves harm and when we 'think' we know, we most certainly do not. Let us watch for this within ourselves and others as a way to hold onto our internal compass and personal truth. In terms of our relationship to God, no one or thing holds this hostage and if we find ourselves in devotion to a form or thought-form, rather than the embodiment of divinity, we will only find disappoint and more separation, in the long run. 

Within relationships and communities, opportunities present to nourish and sustain us in new ways. We can challenge ourselves to receive abundance in the form of greater support. We can choose to be big enough in our hearts to include ourselves. There is opportunity in this death cycle to recognize and embrace our connections with everything around us while also cutting cords and detaching from toxic relationships. 

If we are truly seeking, we must constantly question our knowing and seek to understand the difference between thinking we know and true understanding. How can we be sure we know this difference? Let us hold this elusive nature of truth as truth itself. This is NOT an invitation into self-doubt or otherwise giving our relationship to self away and now is also a time to watch for fear acting as intuition. Each moment presents choice that we may otherwise miss if we are thinking we know rather than seeking to understand. 

While we are working on staying awake in this way, we can simultaneously celebrate how very, very far we've come. As we let go of what was, we fill up with gratitude for what is and make space for what is yet to be. Aligning with reverence for our present moment never fails to set us back on the path when we have fallen or gotten distracted with what is not, or with the projections of what ails us or what we dislike. Let us sit right with ourselves on the inside, no matter where we are or what is happening to us. Let us remember that we can define success for ourselves by how we experience life internally. 

Trust is a way of being and presents itself as an open door if we can let go of the need to question the things outside of our control and stay to questioning ourselves and our versions of reality. Let us understand that when we accept where we already are, that then what we've been seeking will leap right out of the forest and into our hearts, allowing us to experience heaven on earth in the way we were divinely created and intended to, in communion with the totality of our experience.
