Driving to and from work each day, we see sudden eruptions of beauty on each street. A block that last week was gray, barren and lifeless, today is filled with green lawns, delicate blossoms of crimsons, yellows, whites and pinks. Natural beauty nurtures our sensitivity; spring touches our hearts with the joy of sparkling new life. Each day, as we drive along our accustomed way, we see what was tired and old bursting with fresh green living vitality. We can meditate deeply on the radiance we see all around us. Yet this dazzling display of outer spring fireworks also has an inner subjective quality. Deep within our hearts there is a yearning to release the gray winter doldrums and feel fresh, young, innocent and newly alive. It's time. Let spring shine forth from our hearts now.
