To see the light burning in the leaves

The leaves are changing color here now, as they are across most of North America. 

Crossing the fields in the early morning fog this morning, I was stopped by a vision of autumn leaves that looked like torches illuminating the dark limbs of the trees.

Leaves are, of course, repositories of sunlight. But never before have I seen sunlight emanating from leaves as I did this morning. 

To see the light burning in the leaves is a metaphor for seeing with the eyes of the heart. Such beauty blazes out from all around us, but seldom do we notice.

Let us journey this week and seek the luminous view of our lives. 


Be thinking about your intention to bring to the circle. If you don’t have a clear intention in mind, join us anyway. 

We can all benefit from this heart-centered and communal spiritual practice.
