As the seasons change we can be especially conscious of our spiritual connections, our deepest connection with the world as it changes, our consciousness that the changing season reinforces a sense of the endurance of the earth and the natural world, that these things remain constant while we must go through change.
So we come to consider the changes we have gone through in this passing year – some good, some not so good .
We consider our changes,
embrace what is positive – and learn from what is negative.
So let us resolve to continue to learn.
Resolve to be open to transformation in ourselves that change can bring, and so relinquish the resentments of our own disquiet.
Let us – let be …
Some times we have failed to do our best by others and sometimes we have failed to do our best by ourselves –
By learning from, but not holding on to our mistakes, let us relinquish the resentments of our own failures.
Let us – let be …
We acknowledge the suffering of pain and loss –
but know that only if we face up to our feelings will we be able to endure them.
We pray for all those we have lost
and pray for the endurance
which allows us to go on.
We know that our hearts must make room for our memories
and allow healing, in time,
to be such that we can carry
our loves and our losses
together through life.
Let us … let be …
