Conversation with the Month of March
On March 1, I wrote this conversation with the month of March in my journal.
“Hello, March. Welcome to 2022,” I wrote.
“I’m glad to be here. I’ve spent forever preparing for this visit,” March replied.
“What do you hope to accomplish while you are here?”
“I hope to give people the opportunity to make life better.”
“By providing time to show kindness, act with compassion, and help others.”
“How will you do that?”
“I provide the space within which people can make good choices. The rest is up to them.”
“Then how are you different from all the months that came before you?”
“I am the same. All time is the same. Time exists without numbers, without names, without bounds.”
“Then what makes this month of March special?”
“It is happening now. And more so, people need to change.
They need to start taking care of the environment. They need to insist on truth. And they need to care for each other.
Because these actions create a future that benefits everyone.”
“So we have a lot of work to do.”
“Actually, you — people — have a lot of work to do. I’m just the stage on which your drama plays. And I will always be here, regardless of who appears.”
By the way, I often write conversations in my journal. It’s a powerful way to uncover wisdom.
I have written conversations with birds (as previous blog posts will show), with my ancestors (who always have wisdom to share), and with departed friends (so we can continue the relationships we valued).
