“We do not push the wind; it is the wind that pushes us. Life moves each person forward at just the right pace to stimulate continued learning and growth. There is little each person can do to rush the process. The most we can do is to become a more conscious participant.
"When the seasons change, we experience a sympathetic internal shift. All life-forms open themselves up to receive cosmic redirection from nature during these crucial seasonal transitions, so we are likely to be more vulnerable and unsettled."
