Britain’s summer storms, and seeing the Light

June 14, 2012,
Claire Montanaro

The lack of strong summer sunlight affects not just the growing patterns of nature but how we feel. It is easy to fall into a pattern of grumbling or even depression because the weather is not what we expect or want it to be, and because it is one of the few things in life we have no control over, but there are many blessings that come from these unusual conditions. Cool nights make for easier sleep, for example; nesting birds have all the food and water that they need to feed their young without the dangers from great heat; trees and shrubs have been replenished abundantly after a dry winter, as have the rivers and aquifers; and the fast-growing grasses – regretted by garden-mowers but prized by livestock farmers – are a godsend. It is sad when extreme storms cause loss and damage to wildlife as well as humans, but everything recovers eventually, reborn or rebuilt, and much can be learned from the most challenging experiences. The loss of the feel of the sun and the impact that has on our world demonstrates once again its power and importance, not just for our survival but also psychologically, and it will be all the more welcome when it reappears tangibly. It is the light of the sun which is key, for that light is the light of God and it is that which makes us beings of Spirit. That light is there always even on the greyest of days, even in the middle of the night, and seeing it, in its truth, seeing the light, will transform  both how you see your world and how you feel. As the storms express themselves around you, remember that light lies at their heart, and that can only be good.]]>
