In my study of Metaphysics, much time is devoted to understanding cycles. Cycles rule everything. The hours in a day, the seasons, food, work, sleep, sports, activities, holidays – you name it. Cycles determine what, how and when we do things.
The fall and winter months are typically a time of reflection. It’s a natural time for slowing down in nature which also influences our physical bodies and psyche. As our physical activities of summer and early fall wind down, we have more time for our thought life. A time for rest and reflection.
