I was enjoying my morning Yoga today when something prompted me to look out the window. There, camouflaged within the trees just outside my studio was a beautiful red-tailed hawk…..watching me. I was struck by the timing of this divine encounter. I have always been drawn to hawks, especially the grand red-tailed. They are larger than the other hawk breeds, more colorful and they have a mysterious, Merlin kind of presence…as if they know things we don’t about the secrets of the world.
Sometimes when we least expect it, and especially when we don’t try to orchestrate it, divine timing reminds us that there is a master plan…a gracious and wondrous tapestry that is being woven by a force much larger and more powerful than we could ever imagine. The animals know this….they are here to remind us of it.
