I have always known this phrase to mean change.
Changing one's actions - Doing something different.
Yet, as I contemplate it now, I find deeper meaning.
Turning Over: Looking at the under side, the hidden,
The unknown, dark and mysterious energy at work
Deep within the very core of my attempts at creating.
A New Leaf: Not the dry, brittle leaves of fall,
Of transitions and endings. The new leaf, brilliant
Green and supple strength – Alive - receiving
I realize, Aha! Don’t wait for endings to make a change.
Don’t wait! Be always aware of what is within, still, silent
Growing , getting ready to burst forth into the world singing.
Tend to those seeds (dreams &
ideas) that have already
Been planted, nurture the
soil within and let them grow
To become stronger, more
beautiful, more amazing.
And tend also to the seeds of fear and lack that are still
There deep within the mind, still trying to block and hinder
The Soul’s dreams , the Soul’s process of becoming.
Turning Over a New Leaf – The
process of becoming You!
