My friend Rachel wrote the day before the quake: "I feel like the world is shifting"
if ya'll check the first few lines of my post "The Illusion of Coincidence" you'll see that there was something in the air ...
just to embellish a bit: yesterday was Buddha's birthday.
The plates that caused this earthquake are the Tibetan plate rubbing againt the Sichuan basin (Tibet and Han rubbing against each other).
Earlier this year this area was hit with snowstorms.
Aba Prefecture, where the earthquake was centered, was the site of Tibetan protests in March.
China has invited the Dalai Lama to attend the Games.
The world is indeed shifting. How can one not be spiritual at a time like this?
A tremor, again, as I write.
