“Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass,
It is about learning to dance in the rain.”
Although I am a Seattle native now, I was born and raised on the South Jersey shore (my family lives there still)—an area currently directly in the path of Hurricane Sandy—expected to make landfall within two hours.
Watching the destruction of my beloved Ocean City—the beaches, homes, and boardwalk—makes me very sad, but the shamanic message I received is that this destruction is needed to open our eyes. We can no longer ignore the power of nature; we have to start working with this world instead of against it. (See Windwalker’s Message to the World.)
My virtual assistant, located in Pennsylvania, told me she is well supplied with good food, candles, and board games in anticipation of power outages. And she bought each family member a book light for personal reading as well as navigation in the dark. She is prepared to turn the challenge into a good memory for her family. That’s what I call dancing in the rain!
My best wishes to all affected by this epic storm. Know that you in my thoughts and prayers, as well as those of many others.
