Life After Death...
Whether or not one believes in a spiritual afterlife, there is, without question, proof everywhere that life renews itself after death and destruction. One need look no further than the aftermath of the devastating Station Fire here in Los Angeles.
Last Fall, I photographed these same barren hills in their blackened state, seemingly devoid of all life. This past Sunday, I returned and what I saw was an amazingly colorful explosion of wildflowers. Blooms of every shade abundantly covered the mountains from peak to foothill, ravine and valley.
Nothing is more reassuring after the loss of someone dear to you than to fill your mourning heart to overflowing with scenes of life arising from lifelessness. Whenever you are doubtful of your connection to Spirit, in whatever form it calls to you, I highly recommend taking a drive like this. You cannot help but feel thoroughly embraced by Mom Nature's life-restoring powers and again become hopeful of sweet reunions somewhere down the road with those whom you have loved so dearly.
