New Age Spirituality Morning Has Been All Night Coming Part 77

New Age Spirituality Morning Has Been All Night Coming Part 77



Suddenly the sunlight broke through the clouds and flooded the area with warmth and hope. Birds appeared as​ if​ out of​ nowhere, and way off in​ the distance, the arc of​ a​ rainbow emerged, then slowly disappeared. I returned to​ the house to​ help the children prepare breakfast.

A little later in​ the day, I drove around the neighborhood. Trees were uprooted, power lines cut, and debris scattered all over, but fortunately, no one was injured. Within a​ few days, most of​ these unfortunate situations would be corrected. There would be a​ lot of​ complaining, and some who had sustained more damage than others would look around and ask, “Why me?” Every time I hear someone say that, I cringe. “Why me, Lord? Why not the other guy? Why did you let me lose my job or​ my home or​ whatever?” How selfish we can be at​ times. is​ it​ less terrible if​ it​ happens to​ someone else but more terrible if​ it​ happens to​ me?

The point,I surmised, is​ not that things happen to​ me or​ to​ others, but that things happen. it​ is​ for us to​ learn from what is​ happening and to​ know that it​ will not continue forever.Life is​ a​ flowing river — a​ river that’s always changing. All things change and today’s pauper could be tomorrow’s prince,or today’s indifference could be tomorrow’s mourning. Even the weather is​ an​ indicator of​ the constancy of​ change. Last night and this morning, heavy rains and gale force winds; now, beautiful sunlight and gentle breezes. There will always be changes in​ the world, but something within me was saying that a​ part of​ me — a​ part of​ all of​ us — is​ changeless and beyond the reach of​ storms. That part has been with us from time immemorial, and in​ our quiet moments, if​ we listen carefully, we can hear it​ speaking to​ us.
