Lost and Found in Autumn

It’s the last week of May 2020 and the final days of Autumn here in Australia, a perfect time to reflect on the season before winter barges in.

The last three months have seen big shifts and a huge pause in the world. Here in Australia, a tiny speck amid a big wide world battling the same invisible enemy, we’ve become one. Now, as we slowly emerge from our cocoon and the world continues to play out this pandemic of “fear or faith” the seasons roll on.

In my own neck of the woods life has continued peacefully.

Daily walks have nourished me, on local trails that look like a rainbow, with Harry, my faithful canine companion, alongside me.

Last week, with the easing of restrictions, and the ability to be able to see family and friends again, I caught up with my sister. We walked together, close to home, amongst the bush paths that I know like the back of my hand.

LOST

Somewhere along the way she lost her car key and automatic door remote. We only realised much later when it was time for her to leave. We retraced our steps, with no luck. As a result I ended up taking my first drive out of the cave of my hometown, to drive her home, across town.

Not willing to give up, I’d posted a notice on our local Facebook community page. A day later, bingo. Someone had found her key. Imagine the relief.

Exactly one week later, I was walking again, by myself, and along the way decided to stop and film a short testimonial for Mindful in May. I found a quiet spot where I don’t normally go and, when I finished recording, I looked down. There amongst the colourful foliage was a car controller remote, half buried and almost oblivious. Someone had clearly lost it, just like my sister had.

FOUND

I picked it up and took it home. And, like the following week, I posted a notice on the local Facebook page. Within 24 hours I was contacted by a very grateful owner. It had been missing for two weeks when I’d found it.

What are the odds?

On the same day, believe it or not, I lost my new Bluetooth earplugs. Go figure!

I realised late that day and so again I retraced my steps. Nothing. The next day, not giving up, my intuition lead me back to the spot where I’d done the videoing. I said to Harry “come on boy, let’s find them”. I looked down and there they were.

Cue dance of delight here!

Nothing’s ever truly lost. Until we give up and stop searching. Even then, sometimes it has a way of finding us. Luck? Serendipity? Or meant to be.

Autumn walking trails look like a rainbow

CHANGE

The world may have paused but nature keeps moving. We’ve seen it in videos around the world with clearer skies and cleaner waters and nature rejuvenating.

Here Autumn has been a time of catharsis, of letting go. Of losing not just keys, but vibrant golden leaves, changing, falling, dropping to barrenness, fears and worries making way for grounding earth. As things drop off it makes way for an emergence of the new.

To survive do what seasons do – change. Saru Singhal.

In these uncertain times many of us feel we’ve lost our freedom and we’re grieving for what’s changed.

But perhaps along the way we’ve found a more important type of freedom, the ability to appreciate the simple things.

Perhaps we’ve found strength we didn’t know we had and a part of our natural self that we thought we’d lost.

GROUNDED

Love is our nature.

So is peace, joy and strength. These are the qualities perfumed by true nature.

This challenging time is offering us a new path, and it’s not necessarily a difficult and fearful path, but a path of grace.

Pay attention. As we give our attention, not to the fear and confusion of main stream media, but to the presence and stillness of everyday moments, we become grounded in calmness, even in times of chaos.

For me Mindful in May has been part of it.

This month long meditation challenge has been a time to look within, an opportunity to explore and delve deeper.

Our true nature is never lost. It’s right here in the core of our heart, we just have to lean into it. Through this unique time in our history, it’s my deep hope that what’s lost will be found. And perhaps, through it all, a more compassionate and kinder world will emerge.

What we practice grows stronger. So I’ve decided to extend what I practised in Mindful in May by joining a six month programme called The Mind Life Project.

It aims to help us stay grounded, connected, present and centred, just like the massive trees I walk past (and occasionally hug) every day.

Here’s to practising, not just mindfulness but kindness, compassion, understanding and love, as we all continue this journey.

Stay well everyone. No matter what’s happening, and how lost we might feel, step outside today and look up (and even down). Who knows what amazing things you’ll find.

In love and light.


Amazing side note: In another serendipitous moment … after videoing my Mindful in May testimonial … I crossed the road and started chatting with a fellow dog walker. Turned out, she was also doing Mindful in May! What are the odds?

What a small world we live in! Here’s my video.

  6. “…the world continues to play out this pandemic of “fear or faith”.” You couldn’t have said it better, Miriam. There is a clear division as I witness those in abject fear or those who are walking about happy and freely without a mask. This phase of history at first brought intense terror for I honestly did not know what to believe. My Inner Guidance for YEARS has guided me to stay away from the media and to only listen to my heart. Yet when this all began the shock of living in a world where the “impossible” happened was almost too much for me to bear. I worked through that fear mindfully. That fear became a friend showing me where still lurked within me fear that I had to face. So I did. Then again mindfully I set about for answers and boy did I get them as I understood what the “truth” was behind the smokescreen. Despite the evil behind this smokescreen, the TRUE Purpose is for people to go within to find themselves, and for many that is just what happened. I know for me I’ve become stronger and even though “some” in my personal life still look at me as if I were crazy NOT believing what media is spewing out and (other sources), I hung on with all my might so I would not compromise my Inner Knowing that all is not what it seems. And now that I am connecting with other people both here and in my real life that are on the same page as I am, it gives me great satisfaction that I did not cave!
    Now for those lost items. I LOVED those stories. What are the ODDS that you and others would find the lost items? Wow! That is proof right there what we THINK comes to fruition very very quickly now. You did not give up. You were determined to find those lost items or that others would find them. And that is EXACTLY what happened. To be aware of our thoughts …. hence, the mindfulness … is KEY in this transformational period. I know and you know what direction you are walking in. The Battle of the Mind roars around us yet those of us who plant ourselves firmly in Mother, know Reality in the Now.
    Bless you for sharing this post, Mariam. I loved every word, every picture. I’m amazed how BIG your trees are! I haven’t hugged a tree recently, a horse yes, but a tree no. I believe I will do that today. Sending you so much love!!! It was so good to watch your video listening to your voice and looking at your face. You positively glow! SMILE!! xo

    1. Bless you Amy! What a beautiful comment, from your heart to mine. We’re clearly on the same path as you echo many of my own thoughts, both in regards to the media and how we’ve reacted to it. And our own direction in this time of confusion and crisis. I fought through my own fears too but quickly came to the realisation that this pandemic was more a virus of fear, and one I didn’t want to play into. So yes, going inwards has been the way for me and this Mindful in May program has certainly been timely, perhaps meant to be.
      Glad you’ve become stronger in your own path and that you’ve hung on to your beliefs. Keep on your mindful journey my friend, as I am on mine. Go hug a tree, keep taking your gorgeous pics in nature and stay happy and hopeful. Sending you much love and hugs. xx 💚

Walk on and know your Truth and live it. We all shall survive this madness. In order to know sanity, one has to visit insanity. I don’t know about you, but I most certainly did. Big hugs!!! xoxoxoxo

It’s hard…I was afraid at first, I admit….but I’ve gotten better for sure. And I have certainly learned a lot about myself and our world during this time, so that’s a plus as well.

  11. Hi Miriam, My husband has also been using the word “pause.” I find it a more gentle word for some of the big shifts the past three months. I can see how your daily walks would nourish. Your Autumn photos are beautiful!

    Yay, on finding the key. And the irony of finding another controller remote. And finding your earplugs. Wonderful how you wove your story around the world pausing and nature moving along. Your words speaking about “Grounded” resonated with me and brought tears to my eyes. Poignant, hopeful, mindful to every day moments. An exceptionally beautiful post! I loved the video!

  16. What a joyful post… But then I so adore all of your posts and your deeper thinking, you always look towards the spiritual meanings behind things..
    I see those who are merging closer to nature and to themselves, while others are retreating further into their fearful shells…
    Meditation has always been one of my own daily practices… And the Mindful in May has sounded to be a wonderful group to join.. And Listening to your wonderful video, so good to hear you by the way.. and your enthusiasm that this practice has brought, I hope will show others that being mindful and being in your own silent space even for a short time daily has huge benefits …

    So loved your story about the Keys and retracing steps and finding your earplugs too… Shows me that you were following your inner knowing and yes… Nothing is ever truly lost… Just our perception of it..

    So too has this episode in our lives shown us that which we valued as freedoms which we thought we had lost.. Has also given us the opportunity to Find ourselves… And that dearest Miriam I think is what Nature intended all along..

    Just like Autumn, as those leaves fall, they are not lost… But they go back into the Earth to feed the roots of the trees as they sleep through winter… Giving them strength for their return in Spring..

    I hope most of us have gained strength though this experience… I am sure our communities have drawn closer as a result.. ( here in the UK I know my own community is closer for it )
    May we all find more kindness, caring and compassion through our experience …

    Sending Love and Well wishes Miriam… Thank YOU for such a beautiful post and so happy you got to walk with your sister again.. Family are everything.. ❤ Can't wait to reunite with my own.. ❤ ❤ ❤

      You’re so right, nature has much to teach us. I feel it every day as I’m drawn outside and sense the renewal around me even as the leaves drop to the ground.
      Like you, I hope we’ve gained strength and a bit of clarity through this time. We’ve certainly had time to pause and rethink how we want to move forward. Being grateful for the simple things and feeling closer within our community, yes, I can definitely relate to that.
      Sending love and warmest wishes to you too dear Sue. May you stay safe and well and I hope you get to see your family soon too. xxx ❤️🌹

      1. Bless your heart for saying so Miriam… those of us who sense what this ‘pause’ has meant, and followed their instincts… Know this has been and is a pivotal turning point in our Human history… It can either swing one way or the other.. But the more of us who are appreciating our Mother Earth, Nature, and her beauty, will find that strength, for we will shortly within the next I would say five years.. witness yet more changes that will shake us, mould us, and either tip us one way or the other… So I truly hope more are feeling what we are feeling Miriam… Because the time has come, for all to become enlightened..

I often find lost golf discs out on the course, and although it would be best to contact the owner through the number they write on the disc, I often keep playing with it. Eventually, almost every time, I lose it again and wonder who will find it – and what they will do with it.
