Have a Mind That Is Open to Everything, and Attached to Nothing – Mahasiddha Sri Tilopa

When the leaves change colors and let go of their grip to rooted trees, they fall away to become dirt again. Their attachment to their home has given way to the seasons and their evolution goes back to where it began. We admire in awe their celebration of life in colors as they sway away to kiss the ground.

We understand these leaves began in a seed and were birthed with the nutrients of dirt, the wetness of rain, and the warmth of sunshine. They were food for some, shelter for others, and a breath for many. They were part of a whole to become part of another whole and continue its evolution as part of another whole. A whole OPEN to everything because it knows it is PART of everything.

The leaves do not struggle, they do not suffer, they do not resent. They celebrate their life with a marvel of shades, embrace the breeze, and dance their way to their resting place. In this dance, we may discover the freedom that is gained by living with non-attachment and embracing openness. Understanding life is the WHOLE we are, change is certain, and we will wither as gracefully as we welcome the opportunity to do so.
