Instead this weekend I've sat surrounded by crisp leaves in the grass, grass that looks, smells and sounds more like straw. I noted as I first sat down that my yard felt like a nest. 'This,' I thought ,'is why birds build nests.' There was a softness I don't experience lying in green grass.
Over the months, I've sensed the shifting of time, a speeding up unrelated to our busy lives. This morning I wonder: Are the leaves falling due to drought or are they messaging us, sending a sign, that Nature is making an adjustment in these Shifting Times. Are the leaves all around me a sign not just of drought but evidence of our dancing with the Universe and something changing beyond and beneath clock time?

Politicians and people get locked into argument and debate but there is no debating that for millions of years Earth has changed. I'm one of those concerned with the rapidity of this change. This weekend's experience reminds me that things are changing due to humankind's ongoing impact yet there's another change, a Shift occurring as we are part of a universal dance with stars, planets and things unknown, unseen. There's a dance occurring with a great Mystery.
I am asked in this dance if I can like Nature let go in love? Can I stop resisting and like the leaves around me fall into and flow with what's unfolding between me, Earth and the Universe? Will humankind fall into and flow with what's unfolding or will our need to control and our fear be our down fall?
Imagine the Shift.
