I have 155 followers, which I guess is nothing in terms of how big the Internet is, but to me thought of 155 people liking what I have to say so much that they’re following this blog is pretty amazing. Thank you. It helps to know that you’re out there and find value in my words.
I’ve been thinking about writing the water post for a long time as storms have come and gone and flooded things and made the grass grow. But, really, what else can I say about it that I didn’t say with the earth post? The concept is the same. You feel the power of the storms and the ocean, and you take your little cup and dip into it, and use it how you need.
Sometimes on our walks we’ll run through the four powers like that. All of them are there. The earth under our feet. The water in the creek and in the clouds. The fire of the sun and the spark of life inside us. The breeze on our skin or up in the trees. The molten metal core of the planet that generates the magnetic field around the planet. The unstoppable power of the ocean’s surge and the tides. The massive engine of the sun’s nuclear reaction that goes on even when it’s not visible in the sky. The hurricanes and tornadoes and gales that are constantly rushing and pushing somewhere in the world.
Maybe that’s what I’m trying to say in all this, that you can link into these forces on tiny personal levels, and those can link into global forces of nature if you need to reach into that. How you do it is up to you, but it’s something to explore anyway.
On a personal note, what nudged me to get back to this is that she’s having a hard time today. Feeling really isolated and unappreciated by what she used to think was a community, but mostly it’s just a million people arguing with each other. So here we are. I guess this place is really for both of us, since she and I teach each other as we go along, and she helps me put this stuff into pretty words. And hopefully people here reading this learn something from what we’ve been working on or discover as we work together.
That’s the outreach part. She figures even if nobody gives a shit about what she can offer, maybe together we can use my blog here to teach people anyway. 155 people seem to like it, which is pretty good if you picture them all sitting in a room listening to us talk. Thanks for listening.
