Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring are the four seasons in nature. Not every country experiences the same length in time, nor the same temperatures or hours filled with daylight. Maybe some countries don’t experience seasons at all.
Norway for instance has a very short springtime, and a very short autumn. Summer is not that long. Winter is! very long, and cold. Though the summers are mostly very good, filled with warm sunshine, this year brought much rain, cold days during the summer, and now, winter, the temperatures are lower than normal, and snow fell earlier than normal. The climate change is also here.
In life we experience seasons as well. Being 62 myself at the moment I experience already many years the Autumn. I know that Winter fill follow, and no, I am not longing for it. Time is going fast though, and that is why I am longing more than ever to do what I feel I can, not to hesitate, not to wait till maybe some years later, waiting for a better time. A better time for what? More men and women of my age experience the same: it is “Now!” that counts. We don’t have so much time left. Every minute counts. That does not mean that I am active all the time. When doing nothing at all I enjoy it doing nothing, and when working I love that. I don’t spoil time with spending it with that what is useless, irritating, negative. I am more selective, also concerning friends and the time I spend with them together.
I am more aware of my energy. What makes me tired, stressed, nervous…. I listen to my body language. I do that what is healthy.
I say what I have to say.
Feel more courage than ever!
The only thing that I don’t like is my aging body, the aging skin. I am not fond of wrinkles on/in my own skin. There are more and more wrinkles in the face. The skin of arms, neck and legs is losing youth. I observe my aging and I cannot get used to it. It is a natural process though. It helps me to be aware of my time, of the physical season I am in, and of the time there is still left!! I am addicted to life, I love this planet, and death can wait. When it is finally my time I will be ready for it, done what had to be done, said what had to be said, and leaving this planet in a more conscious awareness than when I was born on it. The more your consciousness, your cosmic, and earthly awareness grows, the deeper you feel and the deeper you will realize that everything in nature, in us, we, ourselves, our bodies, is a part of an incredible Creation. I support my body by doing that what I advise to others (because of my work), by using special vitamins and minerals for the aging body. There are also good herbs. For keeping the mind fresh and to help you to remember better, to be able to concentrate. It is Ginkgo Biloba. It is a fact that the memory of older people diminishes, because of that aging process: Ginkgo Biloba helps the body to get rid of oxidants. To take a daily walk of half an hour keeps the bones strong. Fact is that older people break their bones sooner than younger people. So: walk! Be in the open air. Fresh air is an antioxidant also. It is an energizer.
There are also psychological seasons. You can be in the winter season of your life when you are still a child. That is not easy, and it sounds unnatural, but it belongs to the cycle of the soul, and that cycle does not stop when you die, and it did not start on the moment you have been born, or on the moment of conception.
How my life was… well, in the nineties of the last century I was in the middle of the wintertime, and since about a year I am out of it. It is springtime now. and outside I see winter landscapes, snow, the temperatures were already below 25 some days ago, but inside of me it is different. I made also a huge step: moving to another country. Living a new life.
May this encourage and or inspire all who think or believe that life stops or is boring when you get older.
Life is energy. The body can age, your soul gets older also, but grows in strength with the years if you work at your self, your inner world, clean up and let go what is not needed anymore. That brings you on new ways and to new directions, developing Awareness, Cosmic Consciousness and Light. Though it is dark here very early because the sun does not rise enough to shine over the mountains because of winter…. : the inner sun is rising….. !! Springtime is there. Winter has gone.
