May There Always Be a Spring

Over here it feels like life is pulsing through each and every fiber of nature lately. Spring is visiting and the flow of energy is clearly sensible. The mood is lifted and the whole system gets a power boost. When I was on a walk today I saw the first storks arriving at their homes. What a feeling since they are one of the clearest signs of spring to me.

I thought how thankful I was for that circle of life. Or actually, that we can witness every year again that after the darkness the sun dawns again. That the those quiet, cold, and dark periods are meant as a break only to pour out all the colors and light which had time to rejuvenate and break out like a tsunami of endorphins.

That made me ponder… How important that rise of the sun is for us. But also how important it is to have the darkness before in order to take that deep breath and appreciate the power of nature with all our senses. Isn’t it in the dark times where we collect so many insights? Those lessons can bring us to the edge of the bearable but in our natural urge to survive we are still motivated to pull through. Once the valley is crossed or we reach the end of the tunnel all of those experiences can be applied while dancing gratefully in the sun with even more power and an unexpected zest for life. I am sure we all experienced the liberating feeling when we could drop the heavy coat or break the oppressing shell around us. In those moments we feel our own greatness multiple times more. Sometimes we need the limiting circumstances in order to remember how great we actually are.

But I also thought of something different, of nature itself. And here comes a little twist in my post. What if one day that circle of life is interrupted? What if one day there is no renewal and regeneration anymore? What if the storks don’t return? I am aware that I am living in a paradise over here. The mountains, the meadows, the clean air, the flora and fauna,… what if one day the sky will remain grey and the quiet, cold, dark periods won’t end anymore? We need to be more thoughtful regarding our planet and we need to be it right away. As scientists are warning, we have only 12 years to limit climate change before it becomes irreversible.

Let’s use the power nature gives our bodies and minds to do something for nature to stay powerful or become even more powerful again. This world is our home. Who would poison their own houses deliberately or break them down? Not everybody can change the world dramatically but everybody can make a dramatic change in their own world. Even the finance industry reflects on that issue and there are regulatory changes coming up within the coming 1 – 2 years. Investment instruments will be rated regarding the grade of their sustainability. For example, the rating for investments regarding cars or oil might not be very representable other than investing in renewable energy.

Let’s do something now. Let’s keep up the insight of how much needed a spring after a long winter is. Let’s save our planet. Let’s save ourselves.

Because nature will survive…
but maybe only because we won’t be there anymore.

Yes you are so right Erika.. We take Mother Nature for granted to keep on keeping on, While mankind takes her for granted..
Nature is already reflecting back at us her disdain and we are now seeing how she is disturbed, as we see her weather patterns altering drastically, alerting us to what is to come.
Yet our governments have little or no concern..

You would think wouldn’t you given the severity of it.. After all, Its our Habitat. Each breath we take we do so because Mother Nature, her trees, gives us the oxygen to breathe..
Yet the Media hardly mention it… Its all about violence, government policies etc…
I do what I can in regards to recycling and taking care of nature, growing our own food, and being mindful of pollution..
All I can do is take responsibility for myself.. I hope others who read this take to heart that Nature isn’t always going to be her usual Spring like Self..

Much Love my friend โค A great article

So true, nature doesn’t sell! It only disturbs the business in many fields when we change our behaviors to more nature awareness.
The moments out there, seeing the storks flying over was such a moment of awareness. Of realizing what a blessing nature brings with its powerful energy of renewal. I thought of those movies when all stays dark, no sun anymore and it scared me deeply. Your posts came to my mind too.
We need to look at the signs and at the fact that a change has to happen immediately.
Thank you for your so appreciated comment and message, Sue ๐Ÿ’–

I doubt humans are going to make those changes, but I think Nature will change Human’s.. Because Nature will have a knock on effect, whether drought or flood, the food supply will suffer, As a gardener i know only too well in the heat of the UK’s HOT summer of last year the effort it took to keep our crops watered.. By the same token I also know how too much rain ruins crops as well.. So we had all better wake up very soon.. โค My pleasure, I always love your philosophy ๐Ÿ™‚

Sue, you said something very profound here “I doubt humans are going to make those changes, but I think Nature will change Humanโ€™s.” I am afraid this is too true. Too often we only change when it becomes painful. I hope the alarm is heard better.
May I quote you with that sentence above, btw.?
Thank you so much for your effort of replying and commenting. Because it is so very important to spread awareness as much as possible ๐Ÿ’–

Dear Erika of course you may quote me. Some times I look back at what I write. And wonder did I write it? But then I know I am often guided ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜‡ enjoy the rest of your evening ๐Ÿ’–

Whenever I think of spring I think about the return of baseball and what it’s late Commissioner, Bart Giamatti, once said about the game and the seasons. “It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and the evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.” Spring blooms with the smell of cut grass and beautiful blue skies. This leads to the warmth of summer and lazy evenings outdoors, only to be followed by the early twilight and long shadows of a breezy fall. All concluding with the cold arrival of winter. The cycle of the seasons is beautiful because it allows us to renew and refresh. Each of us can do our part to help the environment and I believe most of us wish to do soโ€”especially the young these days. It’s getting the powers that be to see the need to do so that makes this so important because they’re the ones who can get the ball rolling on a grand scale. Many nations have, but in America, President Trump and the Republican Partyโ€”either through sheer ignorance or personal greedโ€”are refusing to listen to those in the know on the subject, and this holds America back from joining other nations in the fight to save our environment. If we are to save our seasons, and all that they bring, everyone must continue to press forward in doing anything they can (personally) to improve the situation. If we do, everyone collectively can make a differenceโ€”and hopefully, others will follow. Love the post, Erika.

Wow, Paul. Your comment is an amazing post itself. I love your thoughts about the seasons. You may not be surprised that of course, I had the currently difficult situation in the US and its presidency in mind which slows down and rather blocks the development for suppporting our planet to heal. As I said somewhere, at least we as individuals need to do what we can do. That is already a lot!! As you said, collectively it makes a difference and is hopefully exemplary! Thank you for you wonderful comment, Paul. Big hugs to you!

Spring made me think and realize how important it is that we take care of nature in order that it can take care of us again. If we continue stamping on and exhausting it, we will be the ones suffering the most, in the end.
