As humans, we have a tendency to want to hold on. We feel threatened by even the idea of letting go, no less the reality. Throughout life, we must let go of people, places, experiences and material possessions. Many things will simply pass through our fingers. Yet we want to hold onto them. We fear change and therefore cling to the familiar. In the season of autumn in the Northeast we appreciate the beauty of change. As the leaves change color, we are reminded that all things change, whether for a season or for a lifetime. As the leaves fall, we are reminded of the necessity of letting go. Unlike humans, you will never hear a leaf scream as it is falling from the tree? The falling leaves are simply a reminder that you can let go with ease, rather than with fear. Trust that all is well. It is only change. Something new is forming.
