The Lightning and the Rainbow

Which would you rather be–the lightning bolt or the rainbow?

Both are fleeting in their beauty. One is violent, sudden, potentially destructive. The other is gentle, delicate, disappears as silently as it appears.

These two natural phenomena evoke awe in the human spirit, reminding us there are greater forces at work all around us. They have inspired poets since the dawn of humanity,

I like to think I relate the ethereal rainbow, but I wouldn’t exist without the spark of Divine Light.

So as a student of the Tao, I strive to embody both, in perfectly balanced duality; Yin and Yang.

And maybe that is why I am here.
