Spring has finally come! Farewell to darkness and winter, and welcome to the triumph of light! Spring is the most dynamic season, it exalts movement, outdoor life, meeting people, exuberance, splendour. Spring is the season of maximum growth and development.
Spring 2020 is quite an original one, offering us above all the prospect of pandemic growth and escalating restrictions, heralding major losses and release. This spring confronts us with the only certainty of life: that of losing everything. This really has nothing to do with Covid-19
It doesn’t matter what you’ve acquired, won, earned: success, money, property, relationships, friendships, family, health. At some point you will lose everything permanently, and Covid-19 has no responsibility about it, for this has always been the case for all people on earth.
Every time you lose something or someone, before losing everything and everyone, this is only a preparation, a training intended to teach you how to to lose. Spring is a beginning and a preparation. Spring 2020 is a training i losing-skills.
Losing is not an anomaly, something that only happens to unfortunate people. It is the inevitable fate of every human being. And it is precisely for this reason that the most important thing you need to learn in life is how to lose.
Among the many possible losses, the most painful and most difficult to accept and learn concern health, relationships, freedom. These losses, like all others, are inevitable.
The only certainty that exists on the physical plane regarding your health is that at some point you will fall ill or have an accident and die. Throughout your life you can learn many ways to keep yourself in good physical health. This is important. But it is equally important to learn to accept loss of health, to manage a disease or situation that leads to death.
So every time you get ill, even if only temporarily, this is a great opportunity to learn the most important and inevitable thing in life: losing, releasing.
The only certainty that exists on the physical plane in relationships with others is that they will end. At some point you will lose loved ones, they will leave you or you will leave them. Whenever you lose someone or something, even if only temporarily, this is a great opportunity to learn the most important and inevitable thing in life: losing, releasing.
Of course, it is not at all easy to learn to lose and release in a world that exalts victory, success, birth, acquisition and shuns defeat, end, death, shadow.
Covid-19 is a teaching aid and so is this Spring.
