The raining pains in your heart are from the unfulfilled meeting of love’s hearts. The mind and heart can face days, months, and maybe even years of dark clouds and rain. You have the rainbow and sun within that can set fire to the hanging clouds of rain that seem destined to haunt you wherever you go. What another has seemingly done to you is ultimately for you to choose in how to respond or react to. Imagine that you have the magic to see, and feel the beauty alone with rays of hope to see beyond any darkness within.
It’s not just using imagination for where there is a will, there is a way! The cloud of the moment is always on the move. Without clouds in ones life where would be the opportunities to see and appreciate the clearing? To not feel in terms of sadness, grief, depression, etc. there would not be the deep feelings of love and compassion. Like the parts of the earth that get no rain, little can grow and blossom. Sometimes, feelings that are uncomfortable are a natural healthy response to a happening. This is not to say that you shouldn’t cultivate the awareness of discernment to know when to avoid the undesired happenings.
Every unfortunate situation comes with a ‘silver lining’ that may require patience, and hopeful insight as well as your movement in the direction of a positive response. Every outward situation, or problem may require thinking to determine the best solution for the outer response. The inner response needs a clearing of the mind. Facing your own being is a mystery while the outer can usually be best dealt with picking the best of available choices. The outer problems have solutions. The inner is largely a mind quagmire. The mind will not be enough to de-stress the inner. Just the opposite will occur – more stress.
Being able to rise above the dark clouds, be it a seeming uphill battle of the inner mysteries, a clearer view will open up. Thinking is irrelevant to find a solution to inner suffering. Seeing the irrelevance of thinking, and it’s battles within, letting go happens to give a sense of meditation. The failure of a solution to an ‘inner being’ problem by thinking, opens the door to the arising of meditation. Finding the silence within is the silver lining gift that opens the doors for the
breezes of godliness to enhance it’s healing powers in their own time. If you stay positive, you have a shot at a silver lining!
