Autumn: To Shed By Thy Grace

ImageAs it’s a new season, Autumn in particular, I always think about what ways of being I want to shed and how I can continue to grow and learn along my path. I came across a beautiful poem by Robert Frost, The Road Less Traveled, from my cousin a couple of years ago. I certainly have taken that path in my life– I love that poem. And I’m thoroughly enjoying most of my ride so far, and even smiling through the painful parts, tears and all. I’ve noticed I always have had a zest to explore under every rock, around every bend, to experience and squeeze as much out of life as I possibly can. Sometimes I do it more clumsily than other times.

Lately I’m noticing the inter-connectedness of all of us, all of life in fact, rather keenly. I’ve been doing kundalini yoga quite a bit, and just fin

ished a 52-day practice. One of the things I’m choosing to focus on lately is grace. What grace means in the full sense of the word, as a way of being, perhaps spiritually it is something that some believe we cannot attain in life. I’m not so sure, I think we can. I view it as a state which we can tap into through living through our hearts with loving kindness, which includes towards ourselves, family, friends, animals, those we don’t know, plants, all things. It’s these small moments of connection that really make life sweet.I’m simply writing to send some loving kindness your way. 🙂
Here’s a song that I really love that I felt you may enjoy too:

Loving light,

  1. By Thy Grace…this makes me melt and softens all the jagged edges, if for a moment. It echos deeply…since the first time someone played it for me.
    Whichever path…,it HAS made all the difference, because you are YOU! And its beings like you who will find that hidden treasure under a rock or a gift around that bend, maybe you already have. Never stop experiencing. squeezing, challenging yourself or others because the two roads do eventually end up meeting at the same place.
