The eye of a new storm?

Dear Ones,

Yesterday, Sunday, I came across the expression ‘the eye of the storm’ twice, in two different countries, two different languages. No relation whatsoever between the two locations or the people using those words.

How interesting!

Yet one person mentioned, in relation to the storm, the need to ground ourselves at center point. Or zero point, if you will—OUR center point.

This prompted me to look into the meaning of such a phenomenon.

“The eye of the storm is the only peaceful part of the hurricane. Getting through the eye wall is the dangerous part, as is exiting the eye, again through the eye wall. The center of low pressure in the storm is the eye. The lower the central pressure, the fiercer the storm, and the higher the winds – nevertheless, the eye is calm and peaceful.

Outside the eye, it’s hell on wheels.”

Why is it called the eye of the storm?

“Skies are often clear above the eye and winds are relatively light. It is actually the calmest section of any hurricane. The eye is so calm because the now strong surface winds that converge towards the center never reach it.”

Is it safe in the eye of the storm?

“The eye is a region of mostly calm weather at the center of strong tropical cyclones. The eye of a storm is a roughly circular area, typically 30–65 kms (20–40 miles) in diameter. It is surrounded by the eyewall, a ring of towering thunderstorms where the most severe weather and highest winds occur.”

And somehow the word ‘new’ came as icing on the cake—as if it were to make spiritual sense.

Is something brewing, dear Ones?

About new desert

Nurturing the Gift of Seeking is about a spiritual "destination," a journey within, a new beginning, that eventually takes us where we are meant to arrive. Some call it Home, yet I am not sure what Home means, and where it is. Enjoy the journey, dear Ones! On this journey, what matters, first and foremost, is our seeking spirit. And the seed of perseverance--or faith, if you will. Happy journey, dear fellow Sisters and Brothers!
