Winds of change ... the Way of Air
to refresh the mind ... and clear away cobwebs
is the way of Air ... to stir the leaves and let the
trees sing their song ... to make wind chimes sing and bells to ring
So Much noise from something ya cant even see huh ? :)
way of Air moves ... yet only by another things reaction
can we see it's effect ... interesting paradox
the one thing we humans can't live without for more than a few moments
in time ...
yet is so nebulous we can't even hold it in our hands
we seek to become calm what's the first thing we do ? Take a deep breath
of course ...
when we are afraid or startled we take a sudden breath and hold it ...
and while we sleep or meditate we barely breathe
Deep breath allows us to suspend a moment in time
to regain our sense of balance
The sudden breath of fear... is to make ourselves ready for action
meditation or sleep we (our inner self ) is not in body ...
so the body has no more need that what it must have, to maintain the flesh
Heck of a lot of stuff going on with the simple act of breathing huh :)
Way of Air implies changes ... changes in state, in body, in thought.
It also implies faith ... we depend so greatly on this thing that we can't even see or touch ...
as wind it can touch us, but not the other way around
Unseen that moves the world ... a perfect analogy
for the Great Divine, is the Way of Air
we call on Air in circle we are seeking the fresh voice on the wind, we
are looking for our hold on faith.
That even though we cannot hold it in our hands it is vital and real ... We seek the means to observe the world
by it's reaction to unseen forces
be like the Air is to be free from all form and shape ... to be one with
all things ..
to move over the face of the world without leaving a mark other than the lives we touch ...
to become Air is to know freedom
May the Winds blow gently on your brow
