Winter - analogies with our inner life

In wintertime, when the sap retreats into the roots, no one approaches a tree that is lifeless, naked, and without beauty or scent. But in springtime, as the sap begins to rise and the tree becomes covered with leaves and flowers, it attracts birds, insects and walkers, and it is a joy to all. We should ponder this lesson. When people are seen to retreat more and more towards their roots, that is, when they give priority to instincts and greed, we can say they are heading towards winter, spiritually speaking. As they become duller and less alive, those around them start to move away. And since they are the last to understand why, they do nothing about it and just complain. So remember this: if you let your energies feed mundane, selfish activities and preoccupations, you will just stagnate, because you will descend into winter, with cold and darkness, where all movement ceases. So make every effort to head towards spring.
