Difficult to Understand

As I have been watching TV coverage of the incredible devastation cause by Katrina, and then not watching because it is so overwhelming, all I can do is send small pieces if energy and prayers to all those so terribly affected. And, of course, send money. I feel sad than I cannot bring stuff to one of the collection site, but I'm not out much these days.

Like so many, I am grateful for all the blessings in my life, and have finally shut down some of my whining and moaning about my own situation. Human nature is a funny thing, isn't it? So many people all around the world are so much worse off than I am, and sometimes I get caught up in my own misery and forget this.Many people in J-Land have written so elegantly about this feeling, that I am not going to add more.  

I have also been meditating a bit on Mother Nature, who gives us moonlight and autumn colors and blue herons fishing in still ponds, and hurricanes and tsunamis and earthquakes. Creation and destruction, both integral to life on earth, but so difficult to understand.  

Blessings, Margo

Very nicely said.

It is the her beauty that astounds me, its is her strength that keeps me, her soft caresses of wind, like a hand on my cheek soothing my soul, with the pure power all that she holds...We must cherish her, adore her and remember she is the one that holds that key and weilds that power. We should remember and respect it. That is her beauty and what draws us to her...
I hope you are feeling better and on the mends!!! You still remain in my thoughts. That is what is beautiful of our hearts it is not limited and can be filled and filled....
Peace
Jodi
