Posts Tagged ‘Rain’

It has been said that Frog hears thunderclouds,
and call in the rains to give our souls a spring cleaning

And here we are living in times of purification

Giving ourselves permission to grieve and experience sadness
is part of learning how to be an authentic human being

The light may be rising, but the whispering
dark nights of Winter have left their mark

Attachments to our friends, relations, and peers is part of being human

And yet it is good medicine to meditate on
letting go, releasing, and relaxing these attachments

When racing thoughts, and the anxieties of the chattering monkey mind
are weighing you down . . .

Picture a Frog with a mantra to “stop it!”

Remember when we are feeling lost and alone,
we should honor those feelings with gentle examination

At the same time, we can trust that the sunshine and rainbows are on their way

Like the Phoenix Rising, it is always darkest before dawn

Try not to get sucked into the murky quick sand of societal’s swamp

Keep your wits about you, and remember to explore
the playground of your inner tapestry with empathy and curiosity

Even if someone gives you a superficial compliment about the way you look,
just say “thank you.”

Meditation on gratitude is always an attitude adjustment
in allowing your heart to take in the love that you deserve

It’s harder to have an icy heart, when you shine the light of compassion on it

May the arriving Wesak Full Moon in later April
shower the Buddha’s light onto your soul!

See you up the trails,

Frog’s ribet is a harmonic convergence with Father Sky.

Spirit lightens our way with a thunderous applause . . .
Springing forth rains answered by Frog’s prayerful singing.

A rapturous chorus appears as a purifying parade of rain –
leaving our souls feeling cleanly washed.

Got dirty? Are your dogs barking from a long, strange trip
down the road less traveled?
Are you feeling . . .
Tired, overloaded, harried, frustrated, nervous,
at a loss, empty or weakened?

Visualize a psychical, surround-sound stereo sauna –
watery-womb like setting bathing your soul . . .
With a relaxing energetic cleansing cocoon of love and light.

Remember when Bob Newhart played the role of a psychiatrist
that yelled at his clients paralyzed by anxiety to
“stop doing that!”?
Showering us with comic relief –
Featuring alignment with Frog medicine.

Giving ourselves a good, energetic spring cleaning clears out
the filth and muck that accumulates in our souls.

Clear away any negative energy by
Spraying water out of your mouth while picturing a frog.
Indulge in a long bath . . .

Taking deep, relaxing breaths is good medicine.

We all need to wash away our distractions and unplug for a spell . . .

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
