The Power and Embrace of Thunder
Don’t forget the ancient images associated with the trigram Thunder, the trigram for the Family gua:
Loud and sudden sounds, fresh meat, vegetables and fruit, lush vegetation, sprouting plants, colors of springtime, streets and highways, lower extremities, thundershowers, electrical current, lumber, cloth, yelling, tendons, vocal cords, the eldest son, horse, snake, fish, dragon, and scorpion
What comes to mind when you think of spreading out a cloth?
Or, upon seeing a cloth pinned to a clothesline, blowing in the breeze?
Let yourself remember, look beneath the surface, and feel what stirs in your belly and heart.
Today I hear the deep, booming, loving voice of my father.
Today, I feel the watchful strength of my mother.
“God comes forth and reveals himself in Thunder.”
