“God is extremely simple. It is we who think of Him as someone complicated. God speaks the simplest language, only we don’t understand Him. We are all deaf. We have been deaf for millennia. Poor God, He has been talking constantly, tirelessly, but we do not have time to listen to Him.” — Sri Chinmoy [Source:http://www.srichinmoy.org/spirituality/our_path%5D

As I get older I find myself more and more in tune with the changing seasons.  Perhaps when I was younger I thought I was too busy to listen to messages from our mother the earth, or maybe I thought doing so would make me seem weird.  As you get older, being weird doesn’t matter as much.

Listen to the wisdom of the changing seasons.  This is mother earth’s way of preparing us for what lies ahead.

We already know what we need to weather seasonal changes.  We just have to listen.

“Prayer is not a way of making use of God; prayer is a way of offering ourselves to God in order that He should be able to make use of us.  It may be one of our great faults in Prayer that we talk too much and listen too little.  When prayer is at its highest we wait in silence for God’s voice to us: we linger in His presence for His peace and His power to flow over us and around us; we lean back in His everlasting arms and feel the serenity of perfect security in Him.” — William Barclay
