There have been so many storms in St. Augustine lately. A perfectly blue day can become in just minutes a night dark reality, with the air, energy, and lighting so different it feels like you're suddenly in another place far away from where you just thought you were. It's funny how the Universe spins around and around and then around again - weather, trials, moods, changes... Life is insane and terrifying and wonderful and horrible! And I think that's why we're here. To experience all these parts of ourselves and our universe (which is ourselves too) and accept the dark with the light just because it is experience. I had this philosophy as a child and I noticed no one else lived this way, so since then I learned how to hate the bad and love the good and let my happiness become dependent on the external circumstances of being a live human being. But I'm returning to the truth now - it is all for the experience. Can I be ok when I feel hopeless or jealous or needy or out of shape and old? Can I relax into my soul observer behind my mind-body self and watch it, and remember that I can be as angry or sad or upset as I want to and it's ok? I can choose to go all the way with the negative feelings actively, or let them pass over me peacefully as I watch. I can choose to get super emotionally high about the good feelings and things that arise, and I can also choose to let them glide over me as I observe; smiling in both negative and positive circumstances, because this is exactly what I want - to be alive, LIVING all the wide and amazing range of human experience. YES!
PS I love storms!
May the exciting and charged storm energy rock your world in the best way whenever it passes through.
