The Chaos & Abundance of Spring

By Leo Babauta

For many of us in the Northern hemisphere, Spring has fully arrived: gorgeous sunshine, warmer weather, green trees, blossoms. It’s glorious!

With Spring comes life springing into action, full of abundance. This is the chaos of life, full and energetic and exuberant. It’s chaotic but in the most affirming of ways.

This abundance and chaos can fill us up, if we let it. If you’re feeling drained and empty, then you can let yourself feel the nourishing abundance of life all around you. Chaos can be stressful, or restorative — depending on our attitude towards it.

Here’s the practice:

  • Go outside and look at the sunlight and abundant nature all around you.
  • Let yourself relax and open to this abundance, and soak it in as a way to fill up your cup.
  • Imagine that seeing the abundant life and greenery can relax you, bring life into you, make your heart sing with joy and wonder.
  • Soak in as much of this life energy as you’d like!

The amazing thing is that this abundant, chaotic life energy is always available to us, no matter the season. It’s the joyful play of little kids, the chaos of our lives, the energy of a crowd in a subway, the emotions of a loved one, the uncertainty in your heart. This is all the abundance and chaos of Spring, come to life, unpredictable, in transition, creative and powerful.

Can you practice being more open to receiving the abundance and chaos of life all around you, and within you?
