I have been thinking about the spiritual meaning of spring, especially spring representing a time to spiritually leave behind the old and worn out. In effect spring cleaning for the soul. Allow spring to be a time to go through the attics of our past. To clean out the cobwebs of our perceived failures, and the dust bunnies of hurts and slights that are still lingering there.
Take time to open all the windows in the mind's house of "things I should have done" and let in the fresh air of Divine Will and the sunshine of the present moment.
Let this be a valued, new, fresh moment for renewing the commitment to letting go and letting God; for reflecting on who we truly are - spiritual beings; for seeing with our spiritual eyes the beauty in all the people, places and things around us.
The message of spring is reflection, renewal and re-birth.
As the earth is re-born, let us be re-born in the quiet of our hearts and minds.
