Fall trees & Impermanence

Life is change. As the seasons turn, I am reminded of this more and more. Life is change. As the Buddhists state it, everything about this life is impermanent. We may be a dedicated practitioner of yoga and a skilled meditator, but life will still change and continue to challenge what we know to be true. The tree in front of my house may be a good tree, a tree who makes all the right choices, but still, the season turns and the tree's leaves fall. This season, I invite you to be a reflection of my tree: sink deeply into your roots, stretch tall through your limbs and let go of what you can no longer cling to. And who knows? Maybe we'll all shine with brilliant colors like the trees in the fall.
