The Buzz: Meanings of AutumnSeptember 22, 2018
It’s officially the first day of autumn, darlings, and that brings me many pleasant thoughts on this crisp Saturday morning. There are so many ways to welcome the new season and to celebrate all that it brings. Here are a few on my mind…
As the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, once proclaimed, “The only constant is change.” I think this is absolutely brilliant! Autumn reminds us that our minds, bodies, and surroundings are always developing. It also focuses on the impermanence of life, emphasizing how vital it is to embrace the present. By doing so, we can savor what we have before it’s gone.
This season is the perfect time for seeking comfort as the temperatures begin to drop. Creating a serene and snug space within your home is one of the best perks of autumn, after all. (Curling up with a hot cup of coffee never hurts either.) It also gives you a chance to learn about what makes you feel warm and safe.
What makes you feel warm and safe?
Day and night are the exact same length during the autumnal equinox. Isn’t this amazing to think about? As a result, many ancient cultures have always associated this day with the concept of balance. Autumn grants us a chance to harmonize with the Earth and tap into the balance within us.
