Nature speaks to us constantly through its varied expressions and we can learn about the world and our life. It most often speaks to you in a natural manner. If the message is important, the expression will be noticeable.
Yesterday after lunch while resting on the sofa, Elliot spotted a large animal on our driveway! He could hardly believe his eyes, as he pointed out the window. I did a double-take! A 200-pound wild hog was rooting around the palm trees.
The unexpected wild hog had a touch of synchronicity. Earlier in the week, I had sent my brother a humorous postcard. It was a photo of an enormous hog sitting close to a woman in a Welcome to Pigdom tee shirt. My mother always had a thing for pigs and, so, every now and then, I'll send a funny pig card in her memory. My note to him said something like, imagine that big sow whispering in your ear, "This too shall pass, so stay on the high road to Pigdom, or go whole hog to the Shrine of Swine." (I know, I need to get out more. :-D)
The synchronicity of the whole hog postcard and the wild-pig-on-the-loose was a reminder that thoughts are things.
And, as I caught sight of that stringy long pig-tail turning the corner, I hoped to do the same. And, watch what I'm putting out there. Thoughts are things. By the way, the pig is revered in many cultures as a symbol of good luck and fertility.
Love and joyful blessings,
