“The earth has music for those who listen.” ~ George Santayana
Wind does something. It holds a message. Whether sweeping up from the Earth or spiraling down from the cloud it always brings with it the truth; the raw essence of life contained in one continuous breath of creation. You know this smell.. this essence. We all know it, yet we forget it in such a commonplace fashion as if it never was. In a sphere of this moment, a sphere of now, we forget the wind but remember it forever.
It is about to rain. The wind picks up slightly, then.. you smell the Earth. This Earthsmell riding on cool wind announcing the coming rain. We all know this. But, is it just some random happening easily explained by the minds of science? Or is the Earth breathing, alive, welcoming the water from the heavens? Perhaps so.. I think so.
These subtle nuances of life go unnoticed often. They are disregarded as simple things that are expected to happen. Never thought through, never examined thoroughly enough to gain perspective of what is really at the surface and never given the afterthought of how this affects the mind, the body or the soul.
The natural world gives hints and hidden gestures, all the while being brushed off.. chalked up to normal occurrences. Normal? Of course they are.. but no they are not just that entirely. These are the happenings of life; the heartbeat of the divine as manifested in everything we experience in reality. Only the right mind in the right moment can see this, appreciate this glow of pure being; pure truth.
These signs are all around.. in life, in love, in personal office space, on your commute to work, even while you walk toward the door of your home. They are pronounced harbingers of what is happening now, in this moment, for you and everyone else. Recognize them for the insight they give and for the simple truths that they bring. Ignore them no more and you will see the difference.
In the sphere of here, of now, of this moment we must understand that the smell of Earth riding on wind is present in so many forms. It warns us, alerts us, gives us peace, consoles us, moves us and shapes our decisions. It is our divine key. Find this… and find yourself.
