As Dr. Todd once put it, “I love weather.” That is a quote I often fondly remember. It beautifully captures so much about life… so much about ‘relationship with’. It is so simple, yet so profound.
You may want to go to the homepage and scroll to the live webcam view of the temple. Even though I live here, I do that several times a day. The fog comes in and goes out… the snow falls as do the leaves… the wind blows and is then still… the sun rises and sets… people come and go… the seasons change… every hour of every day is unique… one year follows the next. He Who Has No Name is the silent witness to it all.
The view from the webcam is, in and of itself, poetry…
Fog as thick as pea soup right now! Driving on Mount Soma Blvd. a few nights ago, I almost had to park and walk it was so thick.
In my sailing days, I hated fog. But I love it at Mount Soma. It feels like it holds the stillness.
Living at Mount Soma has changed my awareness of and relationship with the cycles of weather, people, light, etc. I enjoy the cycles more and more each year.
The weather at Mount Soma is magical. Sunny, rainy, foggy, clouds hanging on the mountains, early morning sunrises, all unique and beautiful. I can’t imagine living anywhere else.
In the times I have spent at Mount Soma, I too have marveled in the weather. I love the mountain islands rising out of low cloud cover at sunrise. Thick fog and I have wondered if the rest of the world even exists, or if I am living on Cloud 9. Thank you Maharishi for that analogy of the cyclic nature of life.
I love weather as well. My relationship with weather has indeed been a great tool for deepening my understanding of “relationship with”
The image of the temple has a calming effect all the way to California! So many people have said they “hate the rain” now that it has returned for awhile!????????????
Thank you for the sweet message today Brahmarshi
I love the wind the best, especially when it is strong enough to push you up a hill.
