First, let me remind you of something I tell myself every day: that every word I dare to publish in this Dia.BLOG.ue comes with the full knowledge that not one of us is going to die a natural death where the cause of death will read “Terminal uniqueness”.
For this reason, whenever my body, heart, brain or spirit go into a state I call ‘mid-mourning’, remembering to keep my heart open, my head up, my ‘wings’ unfurled, and my eyes open is critical, because rainbows only appear mid-morning or past mid-afternoon.
For me, these glorious technicolour arcs are runways or launch pads, and just seeing the conditions for one helps me prepare for wheels up or lift-off. When they do, my spirit goes into flight mode and suddenly my burdens, usually an illusion, and fear, too often a delusion, soars into the Gratitude Zone that is essential for perspective and to return to Love.
The thing to remember is that a rainbow can’t appear in our physical reality when the sun is high. It seems local to me that this is why when I’m reaching for 'light' or running too fast; or when I get stuck or otherwise park myself under an emotional cloud; or when I forget and start thinking a Thought to death that I wind up lost in mental fog my spirit wandering in a self-generated miasma. No doubt this is why when an inner rainbow does appear, as well one in the heavens, it feels like the miracle that it is.
I’ve learned, yes, the $%^&* hard way, that when I’m in pain, staying open, keeping my sense of humour and facing whatever the storm is brewing or raging is critical, because when the light breaks through that’s the only place the rainbow is going to appear.
A MID-LIGHT SNACK
When our heart lights are on full beam, the path ahead of us is clear and our attitudes can easily lift. Such lightness is the key to harnessing freedom. Becoming and being the Light we are meant to be is the only way to bring about the Compassion that is ready to be felt, heard and seen!
