Key Lesson

The missing spiritual key -- needed to forgive those who have hurt us -- is found in our own awakening wish to be forgiven for having been deceived, and then seduced into believing there could ever be a valid reason for hating anyone.

Summary

The fall season, so full of autumn colors, tells the passage of one order of life surrendering itself so that another may take its place. This makes it a natural time for us to let go of any old resentment -- to forgive those who may have hurt us -- so that our heart, willingly emptied of the pain of the past has room within it for the arrival of a new order of joy and trust.

Learning to let go in this way honors life, because it is true to what Life needs in order to succeed within us and through us.

Fall is nature's preparation for regeneration, and we too should use this time to release anything left hanging over -- from the heartache of an unresolved relationship, to that argument with someone that still stings us each time we relive it. That past pain should be deliberately dropped now, shed like dried-out leaves to blow away in the winds of time.

The vital forces that oversee and enforce life's ceaseless expansion and contraction, that ensure its fullness becomes emptiness in order to fill it again... they have no conflict with one other. Far from it: they complement each other by secretly serving to complete one another. And this knowledge can be our power because -- with such wisdom in hand -- we can let go knowing that whatever we will release will be returned to us in a whole new form.
