Dian Mu [電母] is the Chinese goddess of lightning, who is said to have used flashing mirrors to send bolts of lightning across the sky. It is believed that she can distinguish good from evil in order to uphold justice.
The legend of Dian Mu goes that, in ancient times, there was no lightning during thunderstorms. One night, the God of Thunder killed a good woman by mistake. He blamed himself for a long time. Then he told the Jade Emperor about this woman. The Jade Emperor commiserated with the victim and conferred the Goddess of Lightning on her.
From then on, the God of Thunder and the Goddess of Lightning worked together to chase away the evil spirits and punish the criminals. In order not to kill the good people, the Goddess of Lightning would use her mirror to judge first and then the God of Thunder would make thunder to punish the evil. Therefore, we can always see a flash of lightning before hearing the thunder during the thunderstorm.
“There’ll be a time,” Nita said softly, “when any time someone’s elected to a public office—before they let them start work—they’ll bring whoever was elected up here and just make them look at that until they get what it means…”
Kit nodded. “You wanted to know where the power came from,” he said to Nita’s mother and father. “The grownups who’re wizards tell us that whatever made that made the power too. It’s all of a piece.”
“The grownups who’re wizards?”
“And as for ‘why,’ ” Kit said, “that’s why.” There was no need for him to point to “that.” “Not just for the—for what you felt on the way in. That’s part of it. But because somebody’s got to take care of that. Not just part of it—not just one country, or one set of rules, or one species, at the expense of the others. But everything that lives, all the kinds of ‘people.’ All of it, with nothing left out. One whole planet. Somebody’s got to make sure it grows as well as it can. Or just survives. That’s what wizards do.”
