“Spring is the time of plans and projects.” Leo Tolstoy
We began Spring March 20th. It’s a time for fresh beginnings. Inherent with beginnings are endings. This vernal equinox coincides with a solar eclipse. Grounded Change considers the earth a metaphor for change. We each have our field of land to sustain our lives. How we produce what we need is what Grounded Change assists. Below are questions prompted by the season. Consider these questions:
- What is beginning and what is ending in your field?
- What area of your life might be overcast with a long shadow (as a solar eclipse shadows the earth)?
- Where is the new light entering (represented by spring and the new light after the eclipse)?
- How are your change competencies managing ubiquitous change? There is always change just as the earth always revolves around the sun.
- How well have you prepared your field (the context) for planting seeds (ideas for new projects)?
- What seeds (ideas and projects) are you planting this year?
Answers to these questions might guide you. Remove the cloak of perserverance that winter demanded, open to the new. Beyond survival is thriving. As one warms in the fresh rays of sunshine, insights can brighten the scene.
“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” Mark Twain
