Shake Rattle & Roll!
Earthquakes. The small shakers like last night’s 4.4 magnitude I actually enjoy. For me, there has never been a yoga class or any other conscious attempt of mine to “be present” that can clear all of the mind chatter out of my head like a Southern California earthquake. There is a sense of awe that comes with the ground shaking beneath my bones as windows rattle, wood structures creak and my dogs’ stand at attention with tilted heads. Suddenly, my world seems very small, as my awareness of a much greater power, God for me, is absolutely undeniable. Admittedly as I bask in the ominous force of them, there is a “what if” quiet fear in the back of my mind. But, when the earth stops moving and the dogs are at rest again, I pause with gratitude with a renewed outlook on the wonders of life.
