Waking Up From A Dream

A lifetime might not be enough
to attune ourselves
to the harmony of the universe.

But just to become aware that
we can resonate with it--
that alone can be like
waking up from a dream.

David Steindl-Rast

Of Note: Notice anything strange about this photo? If you look closely, you will see that the picture shows a reflection rather than the tall pines themselves. We can tell that the originating trees are mighty and majestic, but their reflection appear a bit off and drab. Let's imagine that we lived in that reflection. We could never really be in harmony with the Real because we would not know it existed. We would believe that the disharmony of the reflection was all there was to life. Imagine waking up one day to Reality. Just imagine.

Today's Weather Report: Drab, really drab, like the picture above and raining. Pouring would be a better descriptor. Besides that it's in the upper 40's; so, it's a cold rain. A perfect curl up with a book kind of day with a fire blazing in the fireplace, soup cooking and bread baking. Hum, the fire, soup and bread are happening downstairs right now. That must be the signal to go grab the book and enjoy the rest of the day.
