Bless the Drought, Too


A drought is, in my opinion, a circumstance for us to acknowledge our humanity and powerlessness to control people, places, and things. We are so used to have our self will be our daily occupation, oftentimes self will run riot to the point of harming self and others. Yet, we are in cooperation with the creation of the planet, including weather. We are directly responsible for creating our mental, physical, and spiritual environment. We may not be aware consciously of our participation in that, just as we are not consciously aware of our food digesting. However, we are a part of and a part from Father, Mother, God, All That Is, divinity itself manifesting. The meek have already inherited the Earth; the strong are still stuggling for it. Bless the drought, for it is us.
