Daily Meditation for April 12, 2019

Spring has come again. “Earth’s a-bubble, with all those poems she knows by heart, so many…” says Rainer Maria Rilke. Listen to Spring come! You can hear it in the twitter of small song birds making their way back to our yards and woodlands. The season of glad songs has come. It cannot be kept quiet. Can you smell spring? Walk past a swamp where new life is emerging and you can smell spring. All of nature is gearing up for another year for life and growth—and that includes ourselves. In wisdom and in joy, we open ourselves to the transforming power that lies in our hearts. What a great gift it is to be able to “come alive” again; to answer the promise of new life; to show the world our love! “Nothing is so beautiful as spring.”
