I can’t sleep. It is the path of the writer. I feel like I am on an emotional rollercoaster. Hurricane Irma brought me back when a tornado hit in our residential area.
It was August 20, 2009 around 6:00 p.m.
The sky was electrifying. The strong winds wheeled the barbecue against the wall to the garden between two flower pots. I watched a bird reaching for cover in a taller tree. I saw a straight bolt of lightning for I knew it was a warning sign to head to the basement.
The electricity went out. All I heard was the thunder and lightning outside. The powerful winds sounded like a freight train The aftermath of the storm destroyed homes and the community gathered in these devastated areas having a barbecue to know they were still here to talk about it.
Community becomes family. It is the awakening of understanding how vulnerable we become when we experience an event that touches our hearts.
Compassion flows out of all of us. The comprehension of nature can be beauty one moment and devastation in the next moment.
The awakening is part of the healing process on our spiritual path. Shift to think purpose is to understand our Being here on planet Earth is to experience our True purpose.
Greatness is our True potential.
To be at service is the highest purpose. Plant the seed. Let it flourish. Let it bloom. Let it flower.
