Joy is not a season it’s a way of living- Kalley Heiligenthal


I am not talking about changes in the season like Spring, summer, fall & winter.

I am talking about the 5 seasons in humans life

  • Infancy
  • Childhood
  • Adolescence
  • Adulthood
  • Old age

This season is based on how you are ageing.

Whether one likes it or not one has to pass through all these seasons in the above order.

Are seasons of ours and that of Mother Nature the same?

No, my friend. They are different.

“Every season is one of becoming, but not always one of blooming. Be gracious with your ever-evolving self” B. Oakman

And which season is best according to you and why?

Spirit of a person

Human life is strange, my friend.

We do undergo seasons (as described above) but each just once in our lifetime, while seasons of Mother Nature are recurring (unlike ours).

But we do possess an unusual spirit.

You can find a ‘young person’ at the age of 80 and an ‘old person’ at the age of 15.

What about the season of ‘extreme uncertainty?

My friend, you are always mischievous! Just joking. Easy…

I am talking about ‘spirit’ and you are digressing the discussion.  It’s Ok. I understand. The blogosphere is nothing but friendly discussion and clarifications.

My dear friend, uncertainty is uncertainty.

There is no such thing called mild uncertainty or extreme uncertainty.

Listen to Pema Chodron,

“The root of suffering is resisting the certainty that no matter what the circumstances, uncertainty is all we truly have”

Now you combine this quote with the title of this post…you understand better.


“Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each”  Henry David Thoreau

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
