Pearls of Wisdom
The Nourishment of Rain
The earth needs to drink just as much as you and I, it needs nourishment for growth and for life. When we look at rain we can find it relaxing or we can view it as a nuisance, getting all our clothes wet when we don’t want to be wet. We need to mimic some of its attributes, for it is rain that teaches us to nourish all things in our life.
Rain falls from high up in the sky, it is a part of a large process and cycle intended to replenish the dried out earth, sometimes we can have too much rain and areas can become flooded, however the flood always recedes, sometimes leaving the land changed.
1. How do you nourish yourself and the people around you?
2. Have you ever failed to provide for yourself or someone in your life?
3. Have you ever given so much that it had negative consequences?
