When I went to France last Summer in August, one of the items on our itinerary was hiking in the St. Maximim forest which is near the Sainte-Baume mountains (a basilica dedicated to Mary Magdalene is there). Our task was to commune with nature on our own and share our experience with the group afterwards.
“Notice that autumn is more the season of the soul than of nature.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Tis’ the season when we’re moved by the dramatic changes of color, the cooler weather, the descending darkness, and the barren branches.
“True mastery can be gained by letting things go their own way. It can’t be gained by interfering.” ~ Lao Tzu
For a while now I’ve been letting go of being in the driver’s seat and controlling how my life unfolds.
