Ouroboros



In winter the sky turns "leaden." It really does. Not only is the stratus layer the exact color of lead, but it feels heavy, a lot heavier even than the serious thunderstorm anvil clouds of summer. Stratus clouds feel solid and metallic, even when they're rumpled like yesterday's sky. What is it about winter that's so heavy anyway? It's interesting to think about.

What I'll be thinking about today, between clients and while I get ready for tonight's social engagement, is lifetime purpose. My somewhat irrational desire to get to Krakow, Poland is all about completing some bit of my life's purpose, I know it is. When I ask/pray for illumination on this desire, all I get is the visual of a circle, actually a ring. The visual isn't about what's inside the circle (or what is excluded either), and it isn't 2-dimensional. The visual is of a ring going round and round, with no beginning and never ending.

Well. Did I need a reminder that the allure of Krakow has to do with past lives and paying it backwards in order to pay it forwards? I would think not but maybe I do, because try as I may, that's all I can visualize when I think about it.

When you pray, do you get confusing visuals? Shalom, y'all. Enjoy your day.

Don't know if you ever read Chas Clifton's blog or not, but I went straight from reading your post to reading his (http://blog.chasclifton.com/?p=2123), and the synchronicity was pretty wild. You might want to check it out, esp. the last half. ^_^

The cloud cover here has been similar to what you describe in the post. As for visuals of a circle, I had one yesterday morning. Interesting coincidence perhaps.
