Forget Not Thy Self
You look into the river and see a reflection of yourself, it begins to rain and yourself image is distorted. Is the distortion a reality of your image, or merely a false truth? And how can your mind protect you from the distortion caused by the rain?
Your eyes are the river! When the weather is clear in our lives we see ourselves clearly, we understand who we are and what we stand for. But then it starts to rain and we start to believe that distorted images we see around us: the divorce, the money issues, the insecurities, the loneliness; we begin to believe these distortions and forget the true reflection of what we look like and who we are. Yes, the rain is real but the problem is when we start to believe the distortion is really our self-image. Walt Whitman said: ‘”Either define the moment or the moment will define you”!
No, we cannot control the rain, but within us we hold the power to use “faith” as an umbrella to protect us from believing that the issues in our lives reflect upon our worth! Me, I choose to dance in the rain, for when we define the rain as a tool that God uses to ‘water us’ so that growth takes place that's exactly what happens; we grow, we take the lessons from the rain, and then we change clothes (smile).
