Today it’s raining.
As I sit out in the back yard and watch the rain drops fall, soaking the roof of the house, trees, grass and flowers, it causes me to think about how necessary the rain is for the life flow of the planet.
So it is with the human experience that times of darkness, rain, storm and suffering is necessary for our own ebb and flow of life.
In times where I could not see truth, when I didn’t understand, when I questioned everything in defiance and resistance, through the dark clouds there inevitably came the light of the sun.
With the light came surrender and then an awakening.
I always came out the other side and with more knowledge and consciousness.
No matter what happens, life does go on.
Although I prefer the upswing that happens after dark times, one can’t exist without the other.
So today I thank the universe for the lessons, for everything, so I can get closer to my creator and know myself better.
