The Holy Spirit is like the wind?

I’ve always been puzzled by the following scripture:
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
(John 3:8)
I would think to myself, “I’m don’t feel like the wind.” I get the feeling that this scripture means something about being impulsive somehow, but I wasn’t sure until I went to a fireside at which Sister Okasaki was speaking. (Such a sweet lady!)

She explained this scripture to mean that when we get a prompting we often don’t quite know where it comes from and we don’t know what will come of it, so we just have to follow it and trust God.
