“Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.”
“Do not be angry with the rain. It simply does not know how to fall upwards.”
― Vladimir Nabokov
“Look at the rain long enough, with no thoughts in your head, and you gradually feel your body falling loose, shaking free of the world of reality. Rain has the power to hypnotize.”
― Haruki Murakami
“Kiss me with rain on your eyelashes, come on, let us sway together, under the trees, and to hell with thunder.”
― Edwin Morgan
“Love like rain, can nourish from above, drenching couples with a soaking joy.”
― Paulo Coelho
“Winnie watched the sky slide into blackness over the wood outside her window. There was not the least hint of a breeze to soften the heavy August night. And then, over the treetops, on the faraway horizon, there was a flash of white. Heat lightning. Again and again it throbbed, without a sound. It was like pain, she thought. And suddenly she longed for a thunderstorm.”
― Natalie Babbitt
“The richness of the rain made me feel safe and protected; I have always considered the rain to be healing—a blanket—the comfort of a friend. Without at least some rain in any given day, or at least a cloud or two on the horizon, I feel overwhelmed by the information of sunlight and yearn for the vital, muffling gift of falling water.”
― Douglas Coupland
“The magic of purpose and of love in its purest form. Not televison love, with its glare and hollow and sequined glint; not sex and allure, all high shoes and high drama, everything both too small and in too much excess, but just love. Love like rain, like the smell of a tangerine, like a surprise found in your pocket.”
― Deb Caletti
“From where we stand the rain seems random. If we could stand somewhere else, we would see the order in it.”
― Tony Hillerman
I was laying in bed this morning, and the rain was coming down, it was beautiful music to my ears, I laid there listening, rain pouring, contemplating life...
My name Rain was given to me the day I was born because there had been a bad drought that year, and on the day I came into the world, just a little after noon on the eighth day of the eighth month of the year, the drought ended and it rained down upon the dry earth and quenched the thirsty plants... and so they named me Chloë Rain.
I was laying in bed listening to the rain coming down and I thinking about how everything I've ever wanted was "raining down upon me". The rain was absolving past disappointments and broken hearts and all the things I have wanted for my life are now raining down upon the earth.
I heard the message.....
YOU CAN stopping wanting.
Stop spending time and energy wanting. It is already done.
Go live your life ALREADY!
You don't need to want anymore, you just need to live, everything you want is yours, it is complete. Stop wanting.
Go get your heart broken.
Then, go and love some more.
I keep living and breathing and loving and learning and everything keeps getting better... and better....
And the rain keeps coming down.
