When the rain pours down
onto my shoulders and hair
I run for cover.
But in this desert there is no shelter
except for a scrawny piñon or juniper tree.
I have no choice but to let the rain drench
my t-shirt and shorts, soak into my skin
and my very bones.
I slow my pace and suddenly sense
the glory of this saturation.
The drops cool my skin
and settle my heart.
With this immersion, the Beloved
nourishes my inner garden.
Such beauty, love and surrender!
Soaking it all in U do so well!
Thank you for sharing sweetheart.
Glad the meaning for this came through, Debra. For me it was yet another teaching about how all is Divine love, even those experiences we want to resist.
So beautiful and a reminder to just Let Go and live in the moment. Our true Master is as close as our heat best.
Very graphic, very rich and penetrating. Makes one want to join in the saturation, both physical and spiritual. Did you take the lovely photograph?
I did take the photo, Rudy, on the same day that I got completely drenched on a short hike. Thank you for your kind comment–truly, surrender makes all life enticing.
So calming to my soul- reminds me to relax and breathe in the beauty of this life❤️
Me too, Kelley. Thank you for the breathing reminder. <3
For me, this is such a powerful and graphic metaphor for “surrender.” Sometimes the mind fights and resists so adamantly that I feel like I’m being turned into a pretzel. When I have struggled with my last ounce of strength against the Will of the Master – the simple “what is” in my life; when I can finally say, “OK, I get it. I accept this;” when I don’t even have the energy for bitterness, that moment of true submission to Divine Will can bring such insight and bliss. Many thanks.
