Will the World cease to be Wonderful when the weather changes I wonder or will the Sun inside of us continue to shine. The World does not change and if one listens to the World News there are very many places experiencing war and famine.
However, I believe one way in which the weather affects us all is to put us in touch with our inner love and our capacity to care for and help others which when it is blowing a gale or pouring with rain gets buried under our discontent.
