I usually post a Comment towards the end of the month, however, nearing the end of September there began to be a increasing awareness of an impending storm. It was very distraction due to the projected size of the storm and the unpredictable nature of it. The location of the landfall kept changing so it made it difficult for the people of Florida to plan emergency actions.
After leaving our area for 4 days we returned and faced several days of clean up for ourselves and our neighbors. Consequently the September Comment did not get posted and I am posting the October first reading which turns out to be not only timely but prescient.
This month's Comment comes from the October 1 reading, p. 302
In the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico massive storms appear nearly every summer. Known as Hurricanes these giant weather events can cover hundreds of square miles with winds in excess of 130 miles per hour (200kph). Huracan was a foundational god of the Mayan pantheon whose vast power caused devastation and flooding. I have spoken to more than one resident of the Gulf coast who believe that the great storms named for this god have a living conscious personality.
Can a weather phenomena be conscious? Does it know what it is doing or where it is going? The ancient civilizations had many names for "weather gods" or "storm gods". Tempestas the Roman deity of violent storms is the origin for our word "tempest". Perun the Slavic god of storms was also the king of gods as was Zeus the Greek god of weather. Horus the Egyptian god of activities in the heavens was the personification of the Pharaoh.
The point here is that we have thought about this question for thousands of years. Where in our mind do we put storms? They appear at times to have a psyche of their own while in other instances they are seemingly random. Yet there is something oddly conscious about their random nature. Perhaps we are surrounded by forces that have their own agenda regardless what we say or do.
Roseus Arx (October)
As seen above is "The Rose Tower", (archaic: Roseus Acx) comes to us from the ancient Rosicrucian movement that interpreted the Cross with a rose signifying steadfast love. In the illustration we understand the celestial rose is only obtained by climbing the tower (stem) which has many thorns that are the afflictions and bad luck of our mundane life. Our goal a reunion with the wisdom of the rose.
