It is also a time of reaping that we have sown. Plants are being harvested, canned or in some way preserved or put into cellars. In that way the old traditions are more alive than ever with the economy being what it is. More people are growing their food or at least a part of it. They are also taking a good look at what goes into their bodies. It is a good time to reflect on that and make plans to change where we can.
So while you are canning, carving pumpkins or preparing that autumn meal, take a moment and give a smile to family and friends, to co-workers, to that hurried person who almost cut you off on the road, or to that person who pushed you aside to get the last can of pumpkin you were about to take. And include them in your prayers at night or in your candle rituals. Remember we are all in this together, we all came here for the same reason, to learn.
