"No problem can be solved
from the same level of consciousness that created it."

Happy Spring, everyone! 🌷
How are you doing in this change of seasons? We've just had our Equinox, honoring the balance between darkness and light, and that's something I'm still thinking about.
I have to admit, these past few days (weeks?) I don't know if I'd describe myself as feeling balanced?! 🙃
The word "balance" connotes a sense of equilibrium and calm. But, my internal self feels a bit more like the weather we're experiencing: bright, blue, warm, and sunny one moment; dark, gray, cold, and rainy the next.
Finding the first crocuses in our yard, seeing the robins playing near our feeder, feeling the warmth of the sun . . . breathing in this moment fills my heart with hope.
A few minutes later, listening to the latest news from Ukraine, I hear the devastation, the anguish, the suffering . . . and my heart sinks.
Certainly life has always been full of contrast and complexity. Right now, it's all feeling a bit extra.
Thank goodness we are not our feelings, and there are tools to help us self-regulate and return to that blissful place of balance.
