I sat in one place for a couple hours the other day and the predominant experience of that "sit spot" time was one of wind. I heard the different sounds of the wind as it blew through the forest... watching ominous clouds move in.
It reminded me of what it is like when difficulties "blow" into my life. Turbulence, swirling... you know something is unfolding but no idea how big the storm will be. Also knowing that I am powerless to stop it. All I can do it accept and embrace it. Choose to receive it - and the lessons that will come with it. Choosing to be grateful for life given - even with the storms that roll in.
