We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a song by little-known American folk singer Linda Perhacs. "Chimacum Rain" explores the mystical quality of nature, covered in rain and folded into silence.

Chimacum Rain by Linda Perhacs

And it rains here
Everyday since I came,
And the lichen covers rocks
And the green finds everything
Chimacum rain

In the soak of leaves
And needle tuft and foam,
In the grasses and the reeds,
And the spilling over stones
Chimacum rain

I'm spacing out, I'm seeing silences between leaves,
I'm seeing down, I'm seeing silences that are his
He belongs here, can't have him
He belongs here, can't know him
He belongs here

It kinda gets inside you,
The silences I mean
They kinda wrap around you,
And loosen everything
Chimacum rain
