“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” — Albert Camus

The seasons have turned around again until we are back to glorious autumn in the high country! People travel to Sedona from far and wide to fill their eyes and their cameras with images of this spectacular time of year.

But as Ilchi Lee comments in The Call of Sedona: Journey of the Heart, “People who come to Sedona aren’t coming simply to look at the beautiful views. They want to experience something new: adventure or inspiration.” He adds, “I believe the yearning that seeks to bring something new to a life that’s lost its luster is an inherently spiritual thing.”

That “inherently spiritual thing” is what calls to us and brings us to the mountaintop, or the river’s edge, or the antelope-colored grasses of the rolling hillside where we can ponder where we are in this moment, and where we are going as well.

The colors of fall grab our senses and invite us to awaken again to the change that is beginning. It is a time of harvest, of recognizing what we are creating in our lives and a chance to make small adjustments in our thoughts and deeds to add to the bounty of the good that is returning to us. Don’t miss it!
