Spring is the perfect time to open the windows and let fresh air move out the stagnant winter air. It’s time to watch the buds, blossoms and blooms all open to receive. The greens get greener, the browns browner, the blues bluer.
I love spring. It’s a perfect time to awaken to freshness.
Use this change in seasons as a beautiful reminder to mind your mind, and let in some fresh air. To open up, pull out the weeds, plant new seeds, and nurture the growth.
Just like nature awakens to a new, crisp, sunny day, let spring serve as an example to awaken from within. Tara Brach says, “We need to awaken to the constructs of the mind.” See what you’ve been storing in there this past winter (the beliefs, the stories…) and clear it out.
Don’t neglect the mind. Let it be your starting point for spring cleaning.
