downpour, shower, mist.
Rain soaks into earth,
and into my psyche.
The dry April drought deterred me from planting seeds. Now i am lubricated with life-giving, seed-germinating rain, and i suddenly sow seeds with ease.
The seed of enlightenment is growing in your heart.
Sometimes, it seems it has landed on the dry soil of dissatisfaction and distress and will never send down its roots. We nurture the seed of enlightenment with loving-kindness. This is the inner rain our tender heart needs to loosen that parched feeling that desiccates our mind as well.
Water the seed of enlightenment that is growing in your heart--now.
