Just as Autumn regularly comes during the year cycle, also in our life from time to time there is a similar season.
Then it may happen that in this world we lose something very precious, or even everything, almost everything.
The paradox is that in another world, at the same time, the exact opposite takes place.
When something dies in this world, it is born somewhere else.
Nothing is created, nothing is lost, everything changes.
The loss of something precious in this world is a special gift for the other world, which is merely the opposite side of the same world.
The beginning of autumn in the northern hemisphere is the beginning of spring in the southern hemisphere of the planet.
You don’t need to go so far to find the other world.
Death and rebirth take place here and now, one is the shadow of the other.
Every situation of loss, pain and separation is a gateway towards good fortune, joy and unity.
Problems arise when we focus only on one side, when we acknowledge as real only one hemisphere. Then, in order to experience joy, good fortune and unity again there will be a long delay, of loss, pain and separation.The side in us who wants joy, good fortune, unity will leave us, for another world, as migratory birds do.
There are birds which stay on, facing autumn and winter, and birds which leave so as to enjoy spring and summer.
You can be a bird with fixed abode or a migratory bird.
It is up to you.
What counts is that you don’t lose your wings.
