Intelligence and Knowledge

I was walking in the mid-morning with our dog, Pippi on the most beautiful golf course across the street from our house. It was an absolutely gorgeous day! Light blue skies, a few puffy white clouds, a flowing green carpet of grass and all kinds of other life forms. I cannot recall seeing this many squirrels frolicking about; there is an Egret in the pond, doves, pigeons, blackbirds, sparrows, robins, and rabbits. I love those rabbits!

As we walked slowly I caught notice of a dragonfly adorned in her (?) majestic blue jacket. She is absolutely stunning. She hovered about eye level and stayed about three feet in front of me as I continued to walk ever so slowly toward her. What was she doing? As I reached the end of our path I felt sadness that I would turn away and go in the opposite direction. I had an inspector coming to our home, so turn I did. To my amazement there she was as I started back home. She kept her flight pattern the same as before and stayed with us until we met the road. She hovered for a moment and darted off. What was THAT all about?

I had to find out something about dragonflies, so I asked my ever present friend, SIRI, “What is the spiritual significance of dragonflies?” She was very helpful by immediately giving me several articles to read right on the spot. I read three of them and was blown away! I had no idea what an encounter with this magnificent creature was trying to convey to me. But I do now! Wow! SIRI is intelligent, often right there in an instant – if she is connected, and always helpful. I could not have dreamed of a constantly – with – me intellect like SIRI when I was a kid or even as a graduate student. Now I can’t imagine NOT having this intellect with me. She is like a companion – and I’m not sure I even consider what her presence means anymore. I appreciate this intelligence at my finger tips.

As I approached the house I reflected on both my meditation for the day and some words about, “knowing” and “seeing” in the mystical and Celtic traditions. I realized that I “saw” in the readings this morning and a sensing coming out of my meditation that there was change coming my way. The call was to prepare for it…to stay open to it…to embrace it when I “knew” it intuitively; when I “saw” it with my heart. Yes, the dragonfly signals transformation. She was born in the water and now lives on the wind. SIRI knew all about that. When I had the awareness to match my contemplation with the experience with my blue friend SIRI confirmed what was growing within.

Keeping my eyes and heart open,
