What do I think? The way I SEE the World.

I was listening to the radio on Thursday morning, and there was a report about the Toyota Recall and they were interviewing mechanics who are involved with fixing the foot pedals. They were saying all you have to do is crawl down there with a flashlight and look at your pedal and you’ll know whether you have the faulty one or not, the name of the manufacturer is on there. And they said the two names of the products, the good one, and the faulty one. It was really early when they were saying this, and I was getting the products mixed up in my head.
Later, I told this story to a group of people I was having lunch with. They wanted to know the two names, and I said I didn’t “remember the names so much as the way they sounded: One had more consonants, and the other had more vowels.” I laughed at that and noted that I would probably check my pedal and then write down the word on the pedal and come inside and ‘google’ it. Everybody thought that was a good plan. (Turns out my car doesn’t have a CTS pedal. That is the one with all the consonants.)
My point here is that I tend to think about the world and the big issues, in terms of colors, images, and sounds.
The Spiritual Aspects of Fire Season.
In my opinion, the point of following a Path is to bring about positive, meaningful change in your life. This is similar to goal setting, creative visualization, and manifesting desired changes. Keeping in mind that the Seasons follow one after the other, then work we do now, was developed in a previous season. And, whatever we do “now,” lays the groundwork for something we will do “later.”
Remember that symbolically, Dry Season represents the East, Fire Season represents the South, Rainy Season represents the West, Hurricane Season represents the North. The Center is Spirit. Fire Season follows Dry Season. In Dry Season, (Air=Intellect) it is time for new ideas to spring forth as more and more of what was grounded, previously, now symbolically dries up into the Air. So, the Idea is developed in the Dry Season.
Fire is symbolic of passion and creativity. This is a time to discover what you are passionate about, and what is it that you create. I believe everyone is capable of creating something. When you think about the Idea that manifested in the Dry Season, do you get excited about it? Do you think about ways you can make your idea happen, how to create it? That is the work of Fire Season.
We will return to this discussion later.
