The world of nature moves
in rhythms, patters, and cycles-
the passing of the seasons,
the movement of the stars,
the ebb and flow of the tides.
The seasons do not push one another;
neither do clouds race the wind across the sky.
All things happen in
their own good time-
rising and falling and rising
like oceans waves,
in the circles of time.

– from the Laws of Spirit by Dan Millman
