Eye of the storm -风暴里的静谧

Eye of the storm

Have you ever been in the eye of a huge storm? It is a bizarre and outer worldly experience where it seems the world is spinning around you at tremendous speed while in fact everything is extremely calm and serene. It is as the world is holding its breath for a second before it gets ready to thrash you completely again.

Where I grew up in Sweden there were of course storms and I used to love them. I have a memory of running out almost naked as a child of 5 or 6 and shouting at the storm to do its worst because there was no way I was moving…Shouting out into the storm “Here I am and I am alive” there is something primal about this and our existence on this planet.

Of course I still feel like this but now that I am a little bit older I also see the wisdom in weathering the storm indoors since after rain will always come sunshine and since mother nature is really much stronger than all of humanity put together and has a way of humbling all of us.

Now I try and cultivate a calm nature in the middle of the storm. Sitting calmly in the  eye while the clouds, rain and thunder spins around me I close my eyes and smile at the fact that I have four walls to protect me from anything that gets thrown at me.

你曾有过仿佛身临巨大风暴中的感受?这是一种奇怪和不合常理感受,似乎世界正在你周围飞速旋转,看似疯狂而事实上,一切却又非常平和与宁静。仿佛是世界在摒住呼吸,是暴风再次来临前的静谧。

我在瑞典长大,那里当然有风暴,我爱他们。我记得我在5、6岁的时候,几乎赤身裸体地跑出去,在风暴中大喊着有本事你更猛烈点,因为我站在风暴中一动不动……我站在风暴中,放声大喊“我在这里,我还活着”。我觉得我们都有着一种原始的挑战生存的欲望。

当然,我先在时而还会有这样的想法,但长大了点的我,也有了更多的智慧,让我拥有了对自然的敬畏,让我意识到,在室内等待风暴的平息也不是什么坏事,毕竟风雨后就是阳光。而大自然母亲却有着比全人类加在一起还要巨大得多的力量。而这让我们所有人都心生敬畏。

现在的我,试着在暴风雨中学会平静。当云、雨、雷在我周围旋转时,我静静地坐着,闭上眼睛,微笑着,因为我有四堵墙保护着我,不受风雨的咆哮。
