The occasional storm brings high energy and high winds. The giant swamp mahogany trees grow very tall, but are quite brittle. The rain makes them water laden and heavy. Then the wind comes along we always have a few branches to clean up. Here an entire tree came down. Of course this is just a natural thing, but when it falls on your main access road it means a big job on our hands
Chainsaws will come out tomorrow as right now with the high wind it is too dangerous to be out under the trees.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
