YES! by Teresa Taylor

Spring has returned.
The Earth is like a child that knows poems.

~Rainer Maria Rilke


Greetings to our friends and community,

Spring is on her way! The streams, creeks and rivers are flowing. I feel them in my sleep. The blessing of beautiful rain—liquid love—has been ours this winter bringing with it the power of regeneration. Water is life. Tight buds are forming everywhere. Plants that haven’t bloomed in years have begun to burst forth. The explosive tension of growth is palpable. There is a song in the air: awaken, awaken, awaken it calls. I respond: YES! I take it all as a grand metaphor.

I feel an excitement of possibility pulsing that was missing for me this winter. Awakenings, be they mental, physical, spiritual or social can be confusing and disorienting. The energy of the coming spring has tipped the scales for me from confusion and disorientation to exhilaration and a regeneration of trust and faith. I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work in support of awakening consciousness. I’m ready to say YES to exhilaration and perspiration.

Spark something incredible with your YES,

Teresa, spirit of Thule, Tucker, Huxley and all at Paradise Found


May our heart’s garden of awakening bloom with hundreds of flowers.

~Thich Nhat Hanh
