As another round of rain is set to hit Los Angeles, I can't help but think how our Earth is grieving; her tears will pour out of her in the form of endless raindrops.
Her pain and grief will storm around us, reminding us that she too needs to release what has been stuck and locked away. What is she grieving? Too much to even list: the prostitution, destruction and degradation of her body; the unfelt pain, anger and sadness of those whose physical bodies have come and gone but whose spirits and their grief still lie within her foundations. She grieves for us and the violence we impart on one another.....but she also grieves to give us a chance to release our own pain.
She grieves to show us what it looks like to actually stop and feel what is there for us. She grieves to show us what it looks like to feel what we have been unwilling to feel; to let go and be vulnerable. She grieves to show us what it looks like to heal.
So in this moment I ask, where are you unwilling to go within yourself? What are the questions you are scared to ask? What is it that you are unwilling to feel?
