I remember the childhood poem by Christina Rossetti:
“Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you.
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.
Who has seen the wind?
Neither you nor I.
But when the trees bow down their heads,
The wind is passing by.”
I remember my mother reading me that poem. I didn’t think much of it at the time, besides it gave me a sort of comfort. I do love the wind.
However, lately, here on Kaua’i, the wind has been a constant companion. I think it’s been blowing for at least a week now. It just keeps blowing and blowing. I’ve never experienced it quite like this here. I feel like I’m on one of those Scottish moors in one of those Gothic novels, standing on a cliff my hair blowing, as I look out at sea waiting for something…
The wind seems to be reflecting a turbulence of thought that is occurring in the world. Perhaps, it is the outside world swirling around in my head if I let it. However, If I draw my energy within and stop myself from becoming a part of the whirling dervishes, I can remain quite still and at peace.
We don’t see the Force of Spirit within, just the wind, but we feel it and we see what it does. The trees bow down their heads, and our lives change, if we allow the Force to flow through us.
I believe that the challenge for many of us relies on the fact that we must stop looking for our answers on the outside. We must trust the unseen. It’s at work and things are shifting in every moment.
I invite us to trust the unseen and really witness how it works in our lives. Trust the things that are occurring as that Force out-picturing through our thoughts. And, once we have set our intentions and requested change, trust the unseen to do its work. Change is moving in the wind, with the Force, and bringing all good things through us into our outer expression. If we really look with spiritual eyes, we will see these changes. Be grateful for the small things. More is to come.
