Mental weather


Like me, you probably find that our daily mind is as turbulent as the wintry weather here on Bere Island where I am writing this letter. Atlantic storms have been drenching us almost constantly since I came here for a personal retreat. Then, today when I woke and drew the curtains, I looked out on a calm, sunsoaked landscape, a cloudless sky and brightly joyful colours. ‘O, what a wonderful world, I head somewhere’. Even knowing how brief such epiphanies can be, we can fully enjoy the gift of them. Mental weather is like meteorological weather. I will say shortly, mind and world, like mind and ego, are inseparable and both are constantly changing.
