Here is a real oddity. We can speculate on the expansion of the spirit to alter the atmosphere. Or perhaps this is a way to provide confirmation that the physicality of our spirit is real and can easily affect the physical around us.
Directly above me, where there had been only clouds, was a perfect circle in the sky. My first thought was, “Wow, I guess there was something to those rain dances after all!” I stared at the opening in the sky for in total reverence for the profoundly metaphysical experience I was having while at the same time trying to figure out what was happening. Having a perfect hole open up directly above you in the sky while you’re playing guitar is not your’ everyday kind of experience. I wanted to know how this had happened. “Did the vibration of the music cause this?” I wondered. “Are clouds alive?” I asked. “Maybe heaven really is in the clouds and the spirits up there wanted to give me sign.” I pondered. “Hmmm, the sound hole in the guitar is round so maybe the clouds are imitating the roundness of the sound hole.” I theorized. After a few more thought on how something like this could happen, I felt like I was part of a miracle. As I sat and pondered what had happened, the sky slowly closed back up.
“I was playing guitar in the nature sanctuary and a circle in the sky opened up above me while I was playing!” They looked at me kind of funny and someone asked if I was on drugs. “No, I’m totally sober. I was making up a song about the native Indians who used to live here and after about 10 minutes, I looked up in the sky and there was a clear place where it has been totally overcast before. It was shaped in a perfectly round circle.” They made a few jokes about what had happened and then resumed watching TV and playing cards. The only one who seemed interested in what had happened was my cousin. He genuinely believed me and was curious about this unusual phenomenon that I had experienced. We sat outside and talked for a while about native spirituality, earth wisdom, and what is the true nature of reality.
The first category is people who believe that what I experienced was real and that there was a sense of connectedness and causality between playing music and opening up the sky. The second category is people who believe that what I experienced was real but reject the idea that there was any causality or connection between playing music and opening up the sky.
My need to convince them of what I see as an interrelated experience seems to be as strong as their need to reject any causality. To them I ask, “So how do you explain a perfect circle opening up directly above me? Have you ever heard of something like this or seen this happening?”
