Wake of the flood
Throughout human history, there are recognizable times when a burst of creative, perhaps spiritually significant energy floods the world. For example, the 1960’s in recent times, is thought to be such a time as is the renaissance, ancient Greece, the Sung dynasty, and so on.
In the time following these floods of creative psycho-spiritual growth, there is a need to integrate what has happened… wake of the flood. On a smaller scale, an individual may have a significant experience, self-realization or a shared experience that, to use the slang from the sixties, blew their minds.
Today, the wake of the flood is in play. It is both an aftermath and a beginning. In whatever one does today, it starts at home and hearth. The simple things in life are attended to with greater care, more awareness, and greater joy. The dust on an unused pan, the book of wisdom left for years on the shelf, the knife that needs sharpening in order to prepare a meal: during this time, everything is brought into simpler terms.
Of course, when nature comes as a storm, it can wash away the boat landing. In this case, one is in repair mode. How stark and simple it all is. The landing is gone; start the clean-up; set to the repairs; there is no blame in the time of repair. Fundamental to such times is the distinct clarity of unconditional blessing. Sheer gratitude for what comes your way… a storm, a friend, an opportunity… will make this a beautiful time.
