The just rising sun enfolds a distant house in gold. Often I find myself rising and falling with changing moods, but when I tune into the steadiness that is the Holy Spirit, it brings me peace (not always pleasure). Like the house just out of darkness, cloaked in sunlight, I am protected.
A couple of years ago, I had a dream that during an earthquake, I was holding tree pose. Everything rumbled around me, yet I was safe inside my home practicing this balancing pose.
Nothing in this world is perfect, even though some times can be more settled than others. If I could remember that I am always enfolded in gold that is God, I can more easily maintain my steadiness.
