Reflections: The Road Ahead
This week I stopped for lunch at a favourite spot and took a short stroll to take some photos of the autumn leaves. The colours are still beautiful in this sheltered valley even this late in the year. A contrast to the wind swept and salt-blasted trees on the North coast of Cornwall where I live. This spray of coppery-coloured beech leaves caught my eye:
Walking on, I crossed the ancient stone bridge and looked back the way I had come, and beyond to the road leading off into the distance. At the same time I was aware of the river rushing past under the bridge flowing to the sea.
I began to wonder what the new year will bring. In only a few weeks time Christmas will be over, with all the joy of sharing, the bustle and busyness. We will be moving into 2015 - where will the road ahead take me? From my viewpoint now the way is obscured, disappearing around the bend, through the trees. Or maybe I won't take the road at all: will I be floating downstream borne by the strength of the river? Will I be struggling against the flow, not realising there is a force of nature waiting to take me to a new destination effortlessly?
Am I able to be open to all possibilities without the need to control or predict? Can I set my intention for 2015 without attachment for how that intention is manifested?
This photo is one I have used before, just downstream of the bridge, taken in May this year. I have included it again as I love the life and energy of the river and the venerable tree spreading it's branches on the opposite bank.
For you: what are your intentions for 2015? Maybe you would like to explore in meditation, flow writing, painting, or a vision board?
