Autumnal Equinox

Today is the official first day of fall, the autumnal equinox, and with it comes the promise of a reprieve from the summer heat here in Austin. The equinox signals a time of balance when the days and nights are equal in length, and now as the sun moves further away from our hemisphere the longer nights and cooler days are ushered in. This is a perfect time for introspection, appreciating all that you find within, and harvesting your blessings. And with any good balancing act, the fall air also beckons us to get up, move, breathe and wake up. So, relax and enjoy and perk up and get going! It’s all good and all perfect. This eternal tug of war for balance…when the constant barrage of responsibility and to-do lists meets the necessity of relaxation, integration, and alone time….an opportunity to meet ourselves with grace and compassion arises. Whenever we start to judge what we did or did not do “right” or “wrong” or start down our own special brand of “I’m not good enough,” I suggest we remember that it’s all necessary…and meeting our responsibilities is just as important as recharging our batteries. You are whole and beautiful and must make constant moment-to-moment decisions based on what is available to you in that moment. If a behavior or decision is truly not of service, you will notice that feeling inside of you and can choose to let all that doesn’t serve your highest purpose fall away like the leaves of a tree. Balance is restored and the tug of war feels less like warfare and more like the game it truly is. We are all playing this game of life and we are all winners. We just have to get out of our own way, relax and remember your equanimity and divine inner goodness. Have a super fall. We love you a long time.
