The picture above represents
such an awakening. It was taken on a day that started sunny but soon turned to rain.
During the bus ride from Salisbury to Stonehenge there was a downpour. I grumbled to
myself and my wife about how the rain would ruin this long awaited trip. As I walked
around Stonehenge in the cold and wet mist, I was still disappointed with the day.
Suddenly, the rain stopped and the sun momentarily broke through the clouds. For a few
brief minutes the rainbow appeared.
This rainy day and, especially, this moment
became the highlight of my two week trip to England. It also opened me to a new attitude.
Without the rain I would not have found that rainbow. Grumbling about your present reality
does not help. You must be open to every moment. You never know what it will bring.
