I have been there, too.

A Season of Change
Leaves float through the air and dance across the street. I find myself enamored with all things Fall, watching nature’s color turn from green to yellow, orange and red.
Today on my weekly leadership call one friend brought up the Hundredth Monkey Effect, “a hypothetical phenomenon in which a new behaviour or idea is said to spread rapidly by unexplained means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behaviour or acknowledge the new idea.”
We then began to talk about what was happening in our collective and with issues affecting the environment and though it may look dire and move slowly to resolution it’s still moving.
I see people around me speaking their voice, being compassion and kind and being tough in their practice of meditation, prayer and making a difference.
I can’t help but think that this will cause a butterfly effect, “in chaos theory, the butterfly effect is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.”
Rather than fearing the precipice in front of me I am present to all that is possible in this season of change.
Together we rise.
