I Sense A Disturbance In The Force
Well, at the risk of this being yet another "I have a bad feeling..." thread, yeah, I feel it too.
Of course, maybe it is just the winter blues. I know I always get them, and thus try to factor them in whenever I feel these things.
But yeah, I feel like something's different. Of course, I've been droning on about
for such a long time, and that of course turned out to be "Nothing
So maybe it's nothing.
However, I know exactly
is talking about with respect to a "cloud" in meditation, because that word almost perfectly
describes what I've been sensing as well.
I also know that it's a new development, or at least new to my senses, because it wasn't there this time last year (that I can remember, anyway). It
feels like a dark charge building, like the air in a thunderstorm before the first bolt is thrown.
I keep thinking of Master Yoda saying "the shroud of the Dark Side covers all."
I don't know, maybe it's nothing -- just the usual jitters and anxieties. Maybe it's something.
If it is
something, however, I still don't see what any of us should do that would be any different.
My advice is always the same: prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
And meditate, of course.
In that domain, the best approach I've discovered so far is also the same: focus on love and light, and don't let fear and darkness drag you
Let love be our beacon.
