Drizzle! Drizzle! That is the sum and substance of weather conditions today and tonight. My encounter with it was in the evening. I didn’t mind. My full day was indoors, where it was rather dry. The important thing is one’s state of mind, regardless of the situation. Krishna is within and without. So let the rain come down.
I received a call from someone in Edmonton. He, like many, are quite affected by the fear culture installed by Covid-19. My response to him was to not get over-exposed to the news. It is highly important to be informed but is also of paramount importance to be enlightened. “Make sure to insert the Blue Boy in your day.”
This will be my message, from here on to the end of the month and beyond—insert the Blue Boy. Also, with the month of Kartik sneaking up on us as of October 31, we should naturally give attention to Him, God as a Child. Every year at this time we become charmed by Krishna as the one in slight trouble, danger and then resolve.
While some veggies are still on harvest, people, at least in this part of the world, are shopping for the colours orange and black. Pumpkins are forever. And this season there is better food, better sleep and better brain. Cool weather is more conducive for intelligence. Personally I will commit to more memorization of yogic mantras beginning with Bhagavad-Gita verse 4.42. Let the rain come down!
