Grey skies and green trees.
The wind kisses my cheek as I watch the rain cascading down. Something is out of place….
I feel distant from this beautiful world I find myself in…Why do I feel this way?
My plane of perception is shattered into a million water droplets as it dawns on me. I can feel Her affection, the rain She has given us tickles my ears, and soddens my hair, but I cannot hear Her beautiful song.
The exquisite serenading so unlike everything else in existence has been absent from my mind, and therefore leaves the world looking drab and emotionless. Moments after I remove the headphones from my ears the world is flooded with her melody. She cries of new beginnings and early dawn sunrise, She washes away heartbreak and fills you with a welcoming chill that grabs your soul and shakes it.
She whispers in your ear louder than any shout, reminding you that you are alive and to breathe…..in our culture we so often forget to breathe.
Breathe not with your lungs but with your ears, as you inhale bring in every sound you can reach. Transition the noises you are acknowledging and close your eyes, paint a beautiful finger painting of sound waves. Mother Nature has blessed us with ears to see with, just as She gave us our hearts to listen.
We must remember to forget.
Forget our technology and remember our roots.
Spring breeze billowing through mighty oaks, producing a chortle unlike anything created by man. The tickling of crisp autumn leaves, dancing their death song upon dry earth. Her symphony, Her lullaby, Her rage…. Her rain song is the most beautiful of them all.
She can be lightly blessing you with water to refresh you soul, or you can hear Her scream from horizon to horizon. Your ears ring in stupefied awe as She shreds the heavens with Her rage, and Her fear. You listen as Her tears fill lakes and streams to bursting points. You continue listening…..riveted as ten million voices fall upon your roof, screaming your name!
CALLING TO YOU!!!!!
As you burst out the door, you wrap yourself in sound waves that have descended from the heavens, you hear splashing, gurgling, surging, rippling, roaring, ear splitting lighting, and spine rumbling thunder.
You are drenched in beautiful sound and emotion, your ears pulsing to the beat of Her heart. Each rumbling burst of thunder pounds the sky as if your heart pounding in your chest echoes through the night. Every rain drops that lands on your forehead arrives just as the happiest, most positive thoughts you have had in years appear. One after the other, these beautiful thoughts come pouring out of you, soon you too are creating rain. Your tears merge with Hers and you are crying in a beautiful duet of emotion. A timeless dance that has played out across countless lifetimes and countless more to come.
She will give you the most beautiful gifts, and the wisest knowledge.
All you have to do is listen.
