Its Monday and its raining like there is no tomorrow.  The sky is bleak, but I am not.  I stood in the rain and was amazed at it’s beauty.  I watched the water cascade off the roof and form pools on the ground.  I saw rain drops collect on plants and the leaves of the trees.  I listened to the sounds of the thunder and the rain.  I was not sad but actually quite happy.  I kept repeating an affirmation I read in the book Spiritual Liberation that said something like…. “God flows through me like  a river flowing with peace and happiness”.
