“Sometimes there’s thunder
and there’s no rain;
sometimes there’s rain
and there’s no thunder”.
Ajahn Chah’s one sentence response
when asked for his spiritual autobiography
is true for all of us. For some
there’s more thunder than rain.
For others there’s more rain than thunder,
but every life has both.
I hope my spiritual biography
has more rain than thunder.
I hope I end with a gentle rain.
