Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.
Those words from poet Rainer Maria Rilke can lead you to experiencing the greatest joys in life. She suggests our deepest fears are like dragons guarding our deepest treasures.
What a special day it was…
A storm was off the coast, and the whitecaps were crashing on the shore as I woke. Rain was pelting my windows, washing off the salty spray the ocean air normally leaves on there. The wind was bending the palm trees, and I was watching for waterspouts. It was a spiritual experience.
One I probably couldn't appreciate if it was that way every day. I think the sunshine the previous day made me enjoy the rain that much more. Just as the rain lets us appreciate the sunny days more.
Sunny is not "good" and rainy "bad." They just are. And we need and must appreciate both. So we have to suspend our judgments of good and bad and just accept the ever-changing flow of life. It's all good.
So live today!
