Feeling a burst of energy? Is the sap rising? You’re not alone. In Ayurvedic terms, spring is a time to shed heaviness, or kapha energy, and to lighten up physically, mentally, and emotionally. As above, so below. We all have spiritual tropism, and are in any number of ways reaching for light, not unlike plants. Even seeking for happiness is a form of seeking ultimate fulfillment, enlightenment, nirvana, heaven, divinity; whatever you may call it, it’s still as sweet.
Dim the lights, and let the natural light reign. Unclutter the house, closets, schedule. Clean up your act. Watch what you eat; go outside and connect more with nature, the original form of spirituality in this world. Consider the needs of others. “In just spring, the little red balloon man whistles far and wee.”
