I think in metaphors. I always have. Some are pretty original, others, not so much. Tonight, I’m going to be completely unoriginal, but truthful. I took this picture while driving home from my meditation group. It is a picture full of the beauty of another day closing on this earth. The colors are stunning, but you want to know why so gorgeous? Our neighbors to the west, California is experiencing several apocalyptic fires. The smoke is pouring over the mountains causing the contrast in colors.
So tonight, if you feel your life is going up in horrendous flames, please remember that there is beauty out of horror (my unoriginal thought). No matter how bad things seem and that death could even be imminent, the universe has this way of showing us she is still here for us. She lives inside of us. The universe is beautiful, and so are you. You may not realize it yet, but I know it. I found it for me, and I know you will find it for you. The best thing anyone ever said to me was, “Your trauma made you beautiful”.
Keeping it short tonight as I’m about to finish a book that is full of metaphors and a nearly unfinished book is like a hangnail you can’t take off for me.
Stay peaceful in the flames.
