“And when the storm comes, and the mighty wind shakes the forest, and thunder and lightning proclaim the majesty of the sky – then let your heart say in awe, “God moves in passion.”

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

A remarkable storm came through during the night which produced a brilliant lightning and thunder orchestrated display.  Mother Gaia marvels us continually through her ever-changing display of colorful radiance and rumbling staccato statements of empowerment.  She is to be honored for her magnitude of infinite manifesting and creative abilities, extraordinary resilience and timeless moments of grandeur!

“Every shower and dew, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever.  Dew and rain, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever.  Light and darkness, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever.  Lightning and clouds, bless the Lord; praise and exalt Him above all forever.”

Daniel 3:64; 68; 72-73

And so it is with our lives, we experience moments of great joy and depths of painful sorrow.  Two emotions on opposite ends of the same vibrant spectrum.  By facing tragedies in our lives head-on, this produces courage and integrity of character.  Through this deep inner work, it allows for the heights of joyous rapture to be experienced soaring us to new heights.  Maybe that is why we are so drawn to the beauty of nature in all of its wonder and glory, for it reflects back to us our own inner journey of the heart.

“Therefore let your soul exalt your reason to the height of passion, that it may sing.”

Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet

It is during these times of sublime lucidity while observing an incoming storm, that the creative spirit within is ignited with ecstasy; just as that surreal mesmerizing gaze into a fire which seems to transport you to another place and time.  There are these uncanny connections which appear to bring serendipity into our lives, similar to the weather in their arrival; on their own time, in their own way and on their own terms – as if these magical moments were actually cued to appear in our lives when least expected.  Such then our lives are like the weather, to be embraced in the present moment of awareness or relinquished forever.  Therefore, be mindful and fully, consciously aware to experience the great vastness and expansiveness of the infinite drenching of the soul.
