Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming “Wow, What a Ride!”

wind of changes

Sunday, I sat at my computer completely stumped at what to post for this morning, Monday. I have been in a slump, not any one’s fault- well, unless you want to blame all the inconsiderate, selfish, evil humanoids in this world hampering my dream to end violence against animals and children. Yes, I know.....arduous task. Not sure where I am at in my life, just know what my heart and soul so desperately would like to see happen; I am one to always go with the flow, maybe I need to blow with the wind for awhile.

It has been extremely windy the last couple of days and I began focusing on the wind, watching the tree outside my window moving in its dance with nature’s power. There was a message there in those moments of gusts and gentle breezes.

Wind is air in motion. Many ancient cultures believed that the wind was a form of divine spirit. Like spirit, the wind is invisible, but it is what animates. The magnificence of the wind resides within each of us.

Wind isn't tangible yet it brings change with its breath. Sometimes these changes are barely perceivable. However, if you look carefully, you can see the wind - it is the swirl in a plume of smoke, it is the ripple across a lake; it is the lackadaisical sway in the branches. Recognize the small developments in yourself. You are growing all the time even when it seems like the wind is still.

A breeze can quickly become a gale, and a storm can swiftly be diffused. So too are you affected by your environment, who you interact with, what you expose yourself to, what you choose to put in your body and your mind. You can choose experiences that will either fuel your spirit or move you off course.

The wind is also a cleanser. It can drift away the hurt and pain with a soft puff of air. But it is also a quick-tempered destroyer; a raging hurricane. Sometimes change feels like an unsettling uproar that dramatically changes the scenery of your life. But as bleak as things feel, know that Wind Spirit is a messenger; movement against stagnation. To fight a gust only creates struggle. It takes time and practice, patience, trust, and faith to embrace the wind for we try to control everything and find answers. But at the end of a bluster lays new potential. Encompass this belief with your mind, hold it in your body and allow yourself to go with the flow. To be carried by the wind is to give things up to a higher power. There is no going wrong for the wind, like spirit, is uplifting and life giving. They are one in the same.

Have a terrific week ahead- and if you get blown away, may it be from something awesome that enters your life.
